Valid 161200Z - 171200Z


Isolated thunderstorms are likely late Wednesday across parts of
northern and central California. Gusty winds may accompany this


00z short-range model guidance is in general agreement that a strong
short-wave trough will approach the northern CA coast by 17/06z with
substantial height falls expected to spread inland during the
overnight hours. Large-scale forcing for ascent will likely
encourage weak elevated convection ahead of the front during the
early evening but this activity should struggle to attain heights
necessary for lightning. However, significant mid-level cooling will
aid destabilization as lapse rates steepen just ahead of a
pronounced surface front that should move onshore around 06z.
Forecast soundings along the northern CA coast suggest near-surface
based buoyancy will evolve along the front which will likely result
in one or more strongly-forced bands of convection. Very strong
southwesterly flow is forecast just off the surface and there is
some concern strong winds may mix to the surface with the frontal
convection. NAM forecast sounding at SFO at 17/06z exhibits SBCAPE
on the order of 300 J/kg with 50kt southwesterly flow at 1k feet
AGL. At this time will not introduce MRGL for gusty winds but if
sufficient instability can materialize a few strong storms may be
possible with the frontal convection.
