Made an update to reduce sky cover tonight. This comes as the cutoff low, moving south of the Bay Area, occludes and cuts off support for cloud development in the area. What moisture remains is forming clouds along the slopes in the mountains of north Cal., and is forming an interesting west to east line of stationary cloud tops. Expect these clouds to continue to diminish over night and for generally clear skies except along the coastal valleys and Umpqua Basin where fog and low clouds will develop by morning. -Miles
Updated 800pm PST Monday 01 Mar 2021..A weak system will pass through the region tonight into Tuesday. Winds will be light, but seas will build tonight through Tuesday, becoming steep with northwest swell of 10 to 12 feet at 14 to 15 seconds.
Conditions will improve Wednesday and last into Wednesday night. The general consensus is for a strong front approaching the waters Thursday morning. The timing of the front is becoming more clear, but it's still a few days out, and it could still vary some. Stay tuned for the latest updates. A few of the operational models show a similar arrival time (Thursday morning). Further examination into the ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts) individual ensemble members show most, if not all of the members showing winds quickly ramping up Thursday morning.
At the very least gales and very steep wind driven seas are expected for about a 24 to 30 hour period Thursday morning into Friday morning, with the potential for storm force winds during this time. Seas may be as high as 22 feet. Because of the increasing confidence, a Gale Watch is now in effect from Thursday morning until Friday morning. Please see MWWMFR for more details. -Petrucelli /CC
