Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 904 PM PDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. A robust warming and drying trend is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, with interior locations expected to warm well above seasonal averages. Temperatures will begin to cool on Thursday, especially near the coast. Much cooler temperatures are forecast for all areas by Friday and into the upcoming weekend.

DISCUSSION. As of 9:00 PM PDT Monday . Considerably more sunshine today compared to Monday resulted in warmer temperatures in most locations today. Today's warming brought temperatures close to average for June 1st.

The current synoptic pattern includes a weak elongated upper trough just off the West Coast, while an upper ridge dominates the southern half of CONUS, including the Desert Southwest. Models are in agreement over the next 24 hours in forecasting the trough to pinch off and form a cutoff low west of San Diego while the ridge over the Desert Southwest builds north and west over California. As heights rise over our area, 850 mb temperatures are forecast to rapidly warm from 13-15 deg C currently to about 20 deg C tomorrow and then as warm as 25 deg C by Wednesday. Surface high temperatures are forecast to warm by as much as 15 degrees on Tuesday and then an additional five degrees for inland areas on Wednesday. The ECMWF continues to generate more airmass warming over the next few days compared to the GFS. In fact, ECMWF MOS max temperatures on Wednesday are as much as 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the GFS MOS. Our current forecast's high temperatures for the next two days are generally in between these two models, although slightly favoring the warmer solution. Even with this compromise temperature forecast, very warm to hot conditions will develop across interior portions of our area by Wednesday and Heat Risk will rise into the moderate to high categories. A Heat Advisory is in effect for all Interior Valleys and Mountains of the Bay Area and Central Coast from 10 AM to 9 PM Wednesday.

As always with heat events in coastal California, the difficult part of the forecast is determining how close to the coast the heat and associated heat risk will develop. Like the heat event last week, this one appears similar in that surface flow is expected to remain at least weakly onshore through the event. This will keep coastal temps relatively mild in comparison to inland temps. Even so, coastal areas are expected to see a sharp increase in temperatures tomorrow, with downtown San Francisco forecast to warm to about 80 degrees. But coastal areas should see temps stabilize or even cool a bit on Wednesday, while inland areas continue to warm.

An important difference in this week's heat compared to last week is duration. This upcoming event will almost certainly be of shorter duration. Temperatures are expected to begin cooling on Thursday as the ridge shifts slightly to the east and onshore flow begins to increase. Only the valleys and hills farthest inland will remain hot on Thursday. Much cooler temperatures are then expected in all areas by Friday as an upper trough approaches from the west.

There is a potential for precipitation over the upcoming weekend as the upper trough moves inland, but model differences means low forecast confidence concerning rainfall potential. Forecast confidence concerning weekend temperatures is high, however, as it appears highly likely that temps will be cooler than seasonal averages, especially inland.

AVIATION. As of 4:41 PM PDT Monday . Warmer air aloft is compressing the marine layer while a light drier north to northeast flow develops tonight. Clouds are reforming in patches along the coast and may impact the MRY Bay Area terminals but high confidence of VFR conditions in the SFO Bay Area.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR with high clouds. West to northwest winds 15-20 kt decreasing after 04Z.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Patchy stratus developing in the MRY Bay. MVFR cigs spreading into MRY after 02Z and into SNS after 04Z. Early clearing expected Tuesday morning. Northwest winds 10-12 kt decreasing after 03Z.

MARINE. As of 8:45 PM PDT Monday . High pressure centered 400 miles west of Cape Mendocino extends to Vancouver Island. This will keep gusty northwest winds over the northern outer waters through Thursday with lighter winds elsewhere. A mix of short period northwesterly and long period southwesterly waves will maintain a mixed sea state through the week.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Tngt. SCA . Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 0-10 nm until 9 PM SCA . Pigeon Pt to Pt Pinos 0-10 nm until 9 PM SCA . Pt Arena to Pigeon Pt 10-60 nm SCA . Pt Pinos to Pt Piedras Blancas 0-10 nm until 3 AM

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.
