Synopsis High pressure over the west coast will result in a
gradual warming trend through Saturday, along with mainly clear sky
conditions and cool overnights. The dry pattern is forecast to
persist through the remainder of the month.

Discussion As of 9:43 pm pst Wednesday... No updates planned
for this evening. Fog product showing just some high clouds with
no valley fog at this time. High pressure to dominate the next
week or so with mostly sunny and mild days followed by clear and
cool nights. Highs generally in the 60s though some 70s may show
up for the central coast over the weekend. Night time lows mid 30s
to mid 40s except around 50 in the city.

Above average confidence for dry weather through the end of the
month as brutally cold intrusions of arctic air will drop east of
the rockies. Eventually the east asian jet may intensify across
the pacific with GFS ensembles showing some light precip chances
by early feb. However, early model simulations show the moisture
coming onshore in the form of weak upper lows.

Prev discussion As of 2:00 pm pst Wednesday... Mainly clear sky
conditions persist over the region this afternoon with
temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s. This trend is forecast
to persist into Thursday with slightly warmer daytime
temperatures as 850mb temperatures warm. Subtle warming will
continue into Friday and Saturday with more widespread middle 60s
to lower 70s as weak offshore flow develops. Overnight
temperatures will generally range from the upper 30s to middle 40s
each night. Widespread fog development is not likely, even in the
typically foggy valley locations given the dry air mass in place
and weak offshore winds.

The ridge is forecast to weaken slightly and shift back out over the
pacific by early next week which will allow for slightly cooler
daytime temperatures (more widespread 60s). Dry conditions are
likely region-wide through the end of the month with temperatures
near seasonal averages. The longer range operational models and
ensemble guidance hint at the potential for some light rain around
february 1st or 2nd. Until then, we will continue to monitor.

Aviation As of 10:00 pm pst Wednesday... Hi-res models show mid
and high clouds over the area tonight but no inversion layer. As
a resultVFR conditions will prevail.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to sfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR.

Marine As of 09:56 pm pst Wednesday... A 1033 mb high is
centered 460 miles west of point arena. This is causing stronger
northerly winds over the northern waters. Winds will decrease by
Friday as another high moves into the great basin. A small
northwest swells with longer period will impact the waters through
the 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.
