Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 336 PM PST Tue Mar 2 2021

SYNOPSIS. Dry and mild weather conditions continue with slight cooling late in the week. Rain chances increase late Friday into Saturday with the potential for unsettled conditions to persist into early next week.

DISCUSSION. as of 02:08 PM PST Tuesday . Fairly clear skies continue over the region as a low pressure system spins well offshore to our west. That system will stream some high clouds over CA and will move southward then into SoCal. For the Bay Area and Central CA, we'll remain dry and mild for much of this week. Daytime highs will range in the 60s to low 70s and overnight lows will be in the 40s along the coast and in the 30s for the colder inland valleys.

The big story is that we're watching the forecast models for an incoming cold front this weekend. Models continue to suggest that light rain could start up in the North Bay on Friday aftn/evening then move southward across our region through Saturday. The heaviest rain should fall Saturday morning. Confidence remains low on the details of rain rates, but we are monitoring the trends in case it could impact burn scars. Rain totals will generally be light to moderate for our CWA. Coastal mountains should have the highest amounts around 0.5-1", but the inland areas will be much lighter around 0.25" or less with some areas in the North Bay or near the coast getting up to 0.4". Winds with this frontal passage should be enhanced starting with southwesterly flow and then turning northwesterly behind the front. Still trying to nail down exactly how strong wind gusts could be and if the higher 925 mb winds will mix down to the surface. Initial estimates are that wind gusts could range 15-25 mph, locally higher over peaks and ridges. One thing to note about the forecast is that the prior ECMWF run was suggesting that the storm could turn into a cut-off low and move just south of our region . which would have meant a drier scenario for our CWA. Latest deterministic ECMWF run has returned back to a typical trough moving inland. In addition, the ECMWF ensemble showed 36 out of 50 members with rain and the GFS ensemble showed 26 out of 30 members with rain, so there is less confidence in the cut-off low being a possibility.

Showers will diminish by Saturday afternoon/evening, but we could see some lingering light showers on Sunday, mainly in the North Bay. Models then suggest that another storm could move in sometime Monday or Tuesday and that unsettled weather will continue next week.

AVIATION. as of 3:35 PM PST Tuesday . For the 00Z TAFs. VFR as high clouds continue to push over the Bay Area. Winds continue to diminish and will be more variable through the night. Onshore winds, breezier closer to the coast, return on Wednesday. High clouds prevail. The better chance for lower clouds look to be after 00Z and outside the TAF period. Vicinity of KSFO . VFR through the TAF period. Winds continue to subside, becoming light and variable overnight. Increasing NW winds Wednesday afternoon. Models hinting and lower clouds moving into the Bay Area Wednesday evening and will be monitored. SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR. A few clouds are growing off the Gabilan Range at this hour, but prevailing SW flow aloft is keeping it away from the terminals at this point, so continued to keep heavy low cigs out of the tafs, but some SCT low clouds still possible overnight. Winds switch back to NW tomorrow afternoon as high clouds remain.

MARINE. as of 01:53 PM PST Tuesday . A low pressure system over the eastern Pacific will move across the waters into tomorrow, though winds will remain generally light to locally moderate. Building northwest swell will cause hazardous seas conditions for smaller vessels into tomorrow morning over the outer waters. Winds will gradually increase and turn southerly on Thursday ahead of the next frontal system set to arrive Friday and Saturday. Moderate northwest swell will over the next couple of days before a longer period northwest swell arrives late this week.
