.SHORT TERM... (Today and tonight) Issued at 159am PST Sat Mar 2 2024

The surface cold front is currently moving through the Bay Area. Doppler radar velocity data and higher elevation anemometers are indicating winds are gusting as high as 55 mph as the frontal boundary passes. Rain showers continue, although the coverage has decreased overnight. The post-frontal environment will likely continue to support this lull in precipitation Saturday morning, and there will even be some sunshine. By Saturday afternoon, the combination of surface heating and cold middle levels will decrease the stability and will likely lead to a final round of strong showers and possible low-topped thunderstorms. Winds will subtly shift from SW to westerly behind the front, and remain strong through the day.

Long Term
(Sunday through Friday) Issued at 159am PST Sat Mar 2 2024

High pressure will quickly build behind the front and the gradient will relax by Sunday. There may still be a few showers, but they will be lighter than Thu-Sat. Winds will also be lighter on Sunday, but there will still be a moderate westerly breeze in the afternoon. The biggest impact will shift from wind and rain to cold morning temperatures. The low temps on Sunday and Monday morning are expected to range from mid-30s to low-40s.

A weak system will move through in the middle of the week. This will keep the cooler temperatures, cloud cover, and light rain chances in the forecast through Tuesday or Wednesday. High pressure finally rebuilds late week. Thursday and Friday look to be clear and calm, with more normal temperatures. For example, the Thursday high temperature at Santa Rosa is expected to climb back to the mid-60s for the first time in a week.

Marine
(Today through Thursday) Issued at 333am PST Sat Mar 2 2024

Shower and storm chances continue this morning with the highest probabilities in the northern waters. Near gale force winds, with the occasional gale force gust possible, beginning to diminish and become more westerly. Rough to high northwest swell lasts through the weekend before beginning to weaken by mid next week when a new northwest swell train starts to arrive. Dry conditions and light northwest winds build into the next work week.
