Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 341 AM PST Thu Jan 23 2020

SYNOPSIS. Mainly dry weather conditions along with a gradual warming trend is expected through Friday. A weak storm system moving into Northern California will bring a chance of precipitation to the region this upcoming weekend.

DISCUSSION. as of 3:24 AM PST Thursday . Longwave pattern depicts an upper level ridge over California and much of the West Coast. Upstream from the ridge is a trough of low pressure moving eastward. Satellite imagery reveals widespread cirrus cloud spilling over the ridge thanks to the upstream trough. Of greater significance to the Bay Area is the lingering low level moisture under the ridge resulting in fog and patchy low clouds. Fog coverage is greatest and most dense across the San Joaquin Valley, Southern Sacramento Valley and inching westward into Delta/East Bay Valleys. Fog is also being reported across other interior valleys around the Bay Area, but just not as dense. Fog will be slow to burn off this morning given the high clouds overhead. Big impact will be to motorists during the morning commute.

Once the fog burns off, filtered sunshine with a ridge of high pressure will result in another mild day. Highs will be a few degrees above normal with more locations experiencing temps in the 60s today. Mostly dry conditions will prevail today and Friday. The exception will be far North Bay where the tail end of a weak frontal boundary may bring brief showers late Thursday into Friday. If showers do develop rainfall amounts will be very light.

The upper level ridge will briefly flatten with the passing of the weak boundary, but rebuild Friday into Saturday. Saturday will be another mild day across the Bay Area. Rain chances will return over the weekend as a slightly stronger frontal boundary moves through the region. Rain chances initially return over the North Bay early Saturday, before slowly moving southward by Sunday. Even with the rain chances this weekend it does not look like a washout. Rainfall amounts will generally be a few hundredths to possibly one half inch in the North Bay. Snow levels will be high so it will all be liquid around the Bay Area. Even with the higher snow levels temperatures will drop from Saturday to Sunday with upper 50s to lower 60s.

By early next week ridging rebuilds over the region shifting the storm track farther north again. Despite the ridging the tail end of a few storms may bring low end chances for showers across the North Bay at times next week.

AVIATION. as of 03:45 AM PST Wednesday . For 12z TAFs. Satellite imagery shows mid to high level moisture overrunning the weak ridge over California this morning. At the same time, it shows the westward migration of tule fog in the Central Valley towards the Bay Area and Central Coast. Of these two features, the westward migration of the fog warrants the closest watch as it has already brought intermittent patchy dense fog to KLVK and other terminals, and is expected to continue to do so into the morning. The high clouds are also expected to thicken up at or around 10000-15000 feet AGL thru the morning before thinning and lowering by the afternoon. Winds generally light offshore through the morning to early afternoon, turning light onshore near the coast by the mid to late afternoon. Ceilings will continue to lower and thicken up by tonight into tomorrow morning.

Vicinity of KSFO . Light offshore flow thru morning and possibly into the early afternoon, then onshore flow 06-09kt by the mid to late afternoon. Expecting predominately VFR cigs/visby but with low confidence of a risk of patchy fog/low stratus advecting in from the ENE due to light offshore flow and presence of fog upwind. Otherwise, expect high clouds to increase through the morning before lowering/tapering off this afternoon and thickening/ lowering further by tonight/tomorrow morning.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Comms issues continue with Salinas ASOS and FAA lines continue this morning. Satellite imagery shows the development of patchy fog/low stratus deck over Seaside/Marina area/to northeast of KMRY so would not be surprised to see it drift towards KMRY given easterly flow there. Otherwise, VFR with increasing high clouds through the morning.

MARINE. as of 03:32 AM PST Thursday . Light winds and diminishing seas through the day. Winds will generally be offshore and locally breezy near coastal gaps during the afternoon. A long period WNW swell will begin to move into the waters later today, peaking on Friday and Saturday. A coastal jet with northerly winds will develop along the Big Sur coast by Friday afternoon, generating small craft advisory winds there. The next storm approaches later Saturday into Sunday with increasing southerly winds followed by another large northwest swell behind the front Sunday into Monday.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tday. NONE.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
