Synopsis Slightly cooler temperatures are expected once again
on Thursday. Winds shift to the north Friday and Saturday
mornings which will allow for slightly warmer temperatures leading
into the weekend. These northerly winds have the potential to be
gusty particularly in the north bay hills.

Discussion As of 3:00 am pdt Thursday... Upper level ridge off
the california coast is retrograding a little as an upper low
from western canada moves into the northern great basin. The
marine layer is deepening again this morning but is becoming less
defined as the airmass aloft is cooling. So even though stratus
extends quite far inland this morning it should be mostly gone by
late morning. Coastal areas will be the last to clear. With the
cooler air aloft MAX temperatures will be a few degrees cooler
than yesterday.

Drier northerly winds will increase Thursday night as a trough
associated with the upper low drops south along the western
states. Latest WRF still forecasts 925 mb winds as high 15-25 kt
in the north and east bay hills Friday 12z with maximum winds to
35 kt in napa county. There should be less coverage of stratus
starting Thursday night and lasting for a few nights. Currently
there are no wind or fire weather advisories in our cwa.

Winds decrease during the day Friday but pick up again out of the
north to northeast Friday night and Saturday morning although not
quite as strong. Adiabatic warming will bring slightly warmer
temperatures on Friday including the coastal areas. Additional
warming is expected Saturday into Sunday as the upper low moves
into the midwest and an upper ridge builds to our north.

Long range models indicate a transitory pattern with the ridge
being replaced by an upper trough off the pacific northwest early
through middle of next week. This will bring cooling back to the
area with temperatures near or slightly below normal.

Aviation As of 4:52 am pdt Thursday... For 12z tafs. A robust
2500 ft marine layer has once again brought widespread low clouds
to the region. The tricky spot this morning is ksfo with
downsloping southerly winds keep the terminal clear this morning.

With that being said a tempo group persist as we anticipate
sunrise to bring CIGS to the terminals. Clearing is anticipated
between 16z-18z over bay area terminals while monterey bay
terminals hold out a bit long with clearing anticipated around
19z-20z this afternoon. Light winds will continue through the
morning with winds strengthening in the afternoon with the onset
of the seabreeze.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR with tempo MVFR CIGS possible over ksfo
this morning. Clearing is forecast around 17z-18z this morning.

Light to locally moderate winds will continue through the morning
with winds strengthening to around 15 to 20 kt with gusts to 25 kt in
the afternoon.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr CIGS will prevail this morning with
clearing not expected until 19z-20z this afternoon. It is
possible that MVFR ifr CIGS continue at kmry all day, but
confidence is low. Light winds will continue through the morning
with winds strengthening in the afternoon with the onset of the
seabreeze.

Marine As of 2:33 am pdt Thursday... Light southerly winds will
persist along the coast south of point reyes through midday today
then gradually veer to the northwest in the late afternoon.

Strong gale force winds across the northern outer waters are
forecast to spread farther south late this afternoon prompting
gale warnings over the outer waters to expand in coverage.

Stronger winds are forecast across all coastal waters this evening
into Friday. These winds will result in steep fresh swell
creating hazardous seas conditions, especially for smaller
vessels.

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.
