National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area
353pm PST Monday Feb 6 2023
Quiet weather returns tomorrow and persists for the remainder of the week. Expect cold to chilly mornings for interior valleys during the first half of the week.
As of 02:41pm PST Monday...The storm system that brought active weather over the weekend is old news as it has exited to the east. In its wake high pressure is building over the region. Building high pressure and increased sunshine led to warmer temperatures across the forecast area this afternoon. Temperatures this afternoon are running 3-9 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago. Max temps this afternoon will top out in the 50s to lower 60s. Not too surprising that it's much drier this afternoon as well.
High pressure overhead, only a few clouds, and relatively light winds will lead to another night of chilly temperatures. Not as cold as the last few nigheights as the airmass warms, but chilly across the interior valleys. Overnight lows will be in the 30s interior and upper 30s to lower 40s coast/bays. A few protected interior valley spots may even dip into the upper 20s.
Tuesday through Thursday:
High pressure will persist leading to cool nigheights and milder days. Current forecast trend has temperatures warming through Thursday. It's possible that interior location may even hit the low 70s by Thursdsay. Frost at night will also become less likely as lows warm a few degrees each night. This will bring quiet and dry conditions with mild days and cool nights.
The ridge slides east as an upper level trough moves through the region. The initial change in the longwave pattern occurs Thursday into Friday with a noticeable drop in temperatures, about 5-10 degrees. The passing trough may produce a few showers over the weekend, but today's model run has trended drier. If precipitation does occur it will be relatively light and scattered.
as of 03:52pm PST Monday...Wave heigheights have been diminishing and will continue to through the evening today. Breezy northwesterly winds also continue through midweek with a brief lull in gusty winds over the southern waters south of Point Pinos tonight into tomorrow morning. A new mid period northwest swell will arrive tomorrow evening and will persist through the week.
