Synopsis Look for overnight clouds at the coast and adjacent
inland spots through most of the period. Temperatures will begin
to warm again later in the week as a ridge of high pressure starts
to build into our region.

Discussion As of 3:00 am pdt Monday... Over the past few hours
we have seen a substantial increase in clouds across a good
portion of our cwa. Unlike most days when other weather parameters
are the focus, clouds are the main story today as many people will
be trying to view (don't forget the proper eyewear!) the solar
eclipse this morning. Unfortunately, guidance has become a bit
more pessimistic with the last couple of runs and now shows a
better shot of clouds impacting portions of the san francisco bay
region. For those looking to view it, advice remains the same --
head well inland for your best shot. Please see the "eclipse"
section below for specific viewing times.

Outside of the eclipse, quiet weather will be the rule for the
entire week. Temperatures will be seasonably cool inland today
into Wednesday as an upper level low and shortwave trough remain
near our cwa. Instead of seeing a typical 40 degree gradient, we
will generally see half of that. Coastal spots will be in the 60s
to mid 70s with mid 70s to around 90 inland.

Toward the end of the week temperatures will begin to increase
(especially away from the coast) as a ridge of high pressure
centered near the four corners builds into california. Highs will
move back to above normal levels with vary warm conditions likely
next weekend.

Aviation As of 10:17 pm pdt Sunday... A weak surface low is 100
miles SW of the monterey peninsula and its mid level counterpart
is over the channel islands; a drying south wind cleared away a
fair amount of stratus and fog along the immediate coast during
the afternoon. Stratus and fog is expected to redevelop tonight.

Wildfire smoke may present slant range visibility reductions at
sunrise Monday morning, mainly inland where there are the best
chances for no stratus or fog. Residual mid-upper level moisture
from convection earlier today over the sierra nevada has reached
the bay area. Stratus and fog redevelops tonight reaching into the
north bay more quickly and extensively than it does over to the
east bay and south bay areas including the bay side of the sf
peninsula. Stratus should also fill in slowly along the north
central coast.

Warming 925 mb level temperatures results in reinforcement and possibly
some compression of the marine layer depth tonight, thus ifr CIGS and
vsbys becoming increasingly likely tonight into Monday morning.VFR
should return by mid-late Monday morning with the last places to clear
out being the north bay and along the immediate coast of santa cruz
and san mateo counties.

Vicinity of ksfo... West wind near 10 knots this evening.VFR likely
holding much of the night, tempo ifr forecast 12z-16z Monday morning.

Vfr returns Monday. Hazy due to wildfire smoke affecting slant range
visibilities Monday morning sunrise.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR ifr CIGS redevelop this evening. Hazy
conditions due to wildfire smoke possibly affecting slant range
visibilities Monday morning sunrise. Ifr CIGS tonight and Monday
morning til approx 17z.

Marine As of 2:32 am pdt Monday... Light and variable winds
will prevail over the coastal waters through about mid week, with
the exception of the northern san francisco bay zone, which will
be breezy during the afternoon and evening hours. As a result,
seas are anticipated to remain relatively tame, occasionally
choppy. High pressure builds in from the west by Wednesday,
increasing winds from the northwest.

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.
