Aviation
Ceilings will improve intoVFR range after 18z and remain inVFR
range through around 06z for most of the terminals. After 06z,
light boundary layer winds will allow another strong low level
inversion to form. This inversion combined with continued high
moisture content in the low levels will allow for low clouds and
fog to once again impact all of the terminals. Ceilings should
fall to around 300 feet by 10z and remain at this level through
around 14z before improving back to around 2000 feet by 16z.

Visibilties should fall to around 1 to 2 miles with kmcb possibly
falling below 1 mile. As a result prevailing lifr restrictions are
expected around daybreak tomorrow. 32

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
