Synopsis Slight warming is expected today, but temperatures
will remain well below seasonal averages. More robust warming on
Tuesday and Wednesday will bring temperatures back to near normal
by midweek. Dry conditions are expected to prevail for most areas
during the remainder of the week and into next weekend.

Discussion As of 3:20 am pdt Monday... The cold upper low that
brought scattered showers, isolated thunderstorms, and
unseasonably cool temperatures to our area on Sunday has moved
well off to our southeast and is currently centered near las
vegas. Moisture wrapping around the back side of the departing low
continues to result in isolated very light showers in our area,
and a few sprinkles may linger through mid morning. But for the
most part, today should be a dry day under partly cloudy skies
(although some coastal areas may remain mostly cloudy).

Temperatures will recover slightly from Sunday's chilly readings,
with afternoon highs today forecast to be about five degrees
warmer than yesterday. Even so, temps today will remain much
cooler than normal.

The models agree that a weak shortwave trough will drop south out
of oregon this evening and track across our area late tonight.

The NAM generates scattered very light precipitation across our
area tonight as the disturbance passes, but most other models
maintain dry conditions. With considerable low level moisture
remaining over our area, it's not out of the question there could
be some isolated drizzle or very light rain overnight, but
measurable rainfall is not likely. The national blend of models
(nbm) forecasts slight rain chances only across a small area in
the hills of northwest monterey county overnight, and this seems
reasonable.

The shortwave trough will pass to our south by Tuesday and weak
shortwave ridging is expected to develop by afternoon. This
ridging should result in enough subsidence to produce a mostly
sunny afternoon along with more significant warming. The warming
trend is forecast to continue into Wednesday when high
temperatures will finally warm back to near seasonal averages.

The warming trend will stall on Thursday, or even reverse a bit,
as yet another weak upper level system moves in from the north and
settles into northeast california. Most model output indicates no
rain in our area with this system, but the GFS indicates a
potential for light rain in the north bay. The nbm keeps pops
below 10 percent on Thursday, so will keep rain chances out of the
forecast for now.

Longer range models generally agree that an upper ridge over the
eastern pacific will gradually build inland across northern
california over the weekend and into early next week. This would
put an end to any lingering precipitation chances and also bring
about more summer-like temperatures late in the forecast period.

Aviation As of 5:02 am pdt Monday...VFR-MVFR except vlifr-lifr
in patchy fog. Goes-east satellite imagery shows patchy lifr over
sonoma, marin, santa cruz, san benito and monterey counties. Ksts
reports 1 2 mile visibility in fog. Latest WRF model run boundary
layer rh is mostly in line with actual observations except it's
under-forecasting rh in the north bay. Mid level clouds continue
brush the eastern cwa, these clouds are wrap around clouds from
upper low that passed by Sunday which is now located over southern
nevada. Morning forecasts in the 12z tafs is mainly persistence,
similar to Sunday meso-scale models are leaning toward bkn-ovc
cloud cover lingering into the afternoon with residual moisture
continuing tonight. Patchy fog is a possibility again late tonight
into Tuesday morning.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR ceiling til 18z then sct-bkn MVFR into the
afternoon and early evening. West wind becoming gusty to near 20
knots at times today.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR-vfr, west wind 10 to 12 knots today
settling back to near 5 knots by mid evening.

Marine As of 2:21 am pdt Monday... Surface high pressure over
the eastern pacific will remain nearly stationary through late
week. Winds will decrease this morning before becoming breezy
again this afternoon. Northwest winds will strengthen further and
become breezy to gusty Tuesday and Wednesday. Moderate northwest
swell continues during the week with steep fresh seas generated by
gusty winds.
