827 am pdt Sat apr 21 2018

Synopsis A warming trend and dry weather are forecast through
the weekend. Cooler temperatures are expected next week as a low
pressure system develops over the eastern pacific.

Discussion As of 08:27 am pdt Saturday... For much of the bay
area this morning clear skies prevail. The big exception is
monterey bay and the salinas valley. A marine stratus layer
developed overnight and moved up the salinas valley. The ft ord
profiler puts the marine layer depth at about 1500 feet, but
metars at kmry ksns show lower cloud decks at 300-400 feet. Latest
hi-res models keep the low clouds through mid morning before
eroding back to the coastal waters. Did a quick update to the
forecast to better reflect latest trends from satellite.

Otherwise, pleasant weather expected around the bay area today
with above normal temperatures.

Prev discussion As of 3:20 am pdt Saturday... Satellite imagery
shows a patch of coastal stratus covering the monterey bay and
extending partially into the salinas valley. Current temperatures
are running warmer than last night's and are in the lower 50s for
the most part. Weak high pressure building over the state today
will bring warmer temperatures to the area today. Highs today are
forecast to be in the 60s to lower 70s at the coast and the upper
70s to mid 80s inland.

A weak upper trough is progged to brush across northern california
on Sunday which will bring a little cooling to the area. Mild
temperatures will continue through about midweek with highs
generally in the 60s coast to lower 80s inland.

Medium range models continue to indicate a cut-off low forming
over the eastern pacific by midweek. This low is not expected to
bring rain to the area, but will likely bring cooler weather and
possibly more low clouds. Confidence remains low, however, given
the uncertain nature of cut-off lows.

Aviation As of 4:27 am pdt Saturday for 12z tafs. Infrared
satellite imagery shows some areas of stratus situated over the
monterey bay and the salinas valley. Outside these locations,
skies remain mostly clear to clear withVFR conditions expected to
prevail. Onshore winds will increase by the afternoon to around
10 to 20 kt.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR conditions expected to prevail. Light winds
in the morning will increase through the day to around 20 kt in
the afternoon (with higher speeds quite possible, like yesterday).

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr and even lifr ceilings have been
reported as low clouds swirl over the monterey bay, impacting kmry
and ksns. At this time think the stratus will mix out sometime
around mid-morning with a return toVFR conditions. Clouds may
again impact the terminals sometime in the evening overnight hours
heading into early Sunday.

Marine As of 2:22 am pdt Saturday... Continued breezy northwest
winds are expected over the coastal waters this weekend as high
pressure remains over the eastern pacific. Steep wind waves and
fresh swell will result in hazardous seas likely over the weekend
and possibly into early next week.

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.
