For the benefit of those coming from elsewhere, the weather right
now [Fri, 18 Oct 2002 02:02:42 PDT] in the San Francisco Bay Area
(and forecast to remain the same for most of the Conference week)
is a typical fall weather pattern:
- Fog (w/ some drizzle) along the Pacific coast evening, nights, and
into the late mornings, with the nightly fog penetrating into the
City of San Francisco proper and spreading as a low stratus layer
over most of the Bay Area (including East Bay).
- The fog/stratus will burn off beginning far inland and progressing
back towards the coast during each day, earlier the farther east one is.
- Depending on where you are, lows will be in the 40-50 F (4-10 C)
range, with highs around 50-60 F (10-15 C) on the coast, 60-70 F
(15-20 C) around the Bay, and 65-80 F (18-27 C) farther inland.
The City of San Francisco itself partakes of both the "coastal"
and "Bay" microclimates, depending on where in the City one is.
In short, dress for cool-ish (and occasionally misty) fall weather
at night, and cool-to-warm weather during the day. But don't overdress.
Typically a light windbreaker (and maybe a hat) will keep one warm
enough, and it may suddenly turn hotter unexpectedly during the day.
p.s For those who can read METAR aviation reports, the most recent
reports from <URL:http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/metar.shtml> for
the San Francisco, Oakland, San Carlos, Palo Alto, and San Jose
airports (all showing 12-13 C) are:
KSFO 180756Z 23006KT 10SM OVC016 13/09 A2999 RMK AO2 SLP156
KOAK 180753Z 27008KT 10SM OVC017 13/10 A3000 RMK AO2 SLP157
KSQL 180347Z 31010KT 10SM SCT030 12/09 A2996 RMK LAST
KPAO 180347Z 30008KT 12SM FEW020 SCT200 12/08 A2995 RMK LAST
KSJC 180753Z 34005KT 10SM OVC018 13/08 A2999 RMK AO2 SLP155
The SQL/PAO reports stop at 9:00pm local, which which why they're
only showing "scattered/few" clouds at ~2-3 Kft, while the others
(4 hrs later) show "overcast" at 1600-1800'. Winds are light, 5-10 kts,
varying from out of the the SW to NW as one moves from the north to
south of the Bay. Horizontal visibility is quite good (but with
only a 3-4 C difference between temp & dew point, fog developing
later is possible), and the barometric pressure stands at ~30" Hg.
