Synopsis Building high pressure over the eastern pacific will
result in a gradual warming trend through much of the upcoming
workweek.

Discussion As of 12:48 pm pdt Saturday... A cool, dry air mass
remains in place over the region this afternoon with temperatures
generally only warming into the 60s and 70s. While a few spots may
top out in the lower 80s inland, temperatures remain below
seasonal averages for most locations. For tonight, temperatures
will cool back into the 40s for most inland valley locations with
light winds and a mainly clear sky. With that said, cannot rule
out a few low clouds developing off of the central coast that may
briefly push inland over the monterey peninsula early Sunday
morning.

Daytime temperatures nudge up to near seasonal averages on Sunday as
the long-wave trough shifts eastward and a ridge of high pressure
begins to develop over the eastern pacific. With the building ridge
off of the coast, temperatures will continue on a gradual warming
trend into early next week with very little to no coastal stratus to
speak of. By Tuesday afternoon, widespread 80s will be likely region-
wide with some of the warmest inland valley locations and higher
elevations reaching into the 90s.

The ridge axis is then forecast to shift inland across northern
california by midweek with well above average temperatures likely to
develop. In addition, weak offshore flow will be possible by midweek
which will help drive warmer conditions all the way to the coast.

Currently, Wednesday and Thursday appear to be the warmest days of
the week with mid upper 80s possible at the coast and widespread 90s
inland. With 850 mb temperatures only forecast to warm to around 18-
19 deg c during this heat event, the heat risk will likely remain
low to potentially moderate. The dry air mass and mainly clear sky
conditions will also allow for modest cooling during the overnight
hours, further reducing any heat risks. Nonetheless, will closely
monitor model trends and adjust the forecast accordingly in the
coming days. Slight cooling is then expected by Friday of next week
as the ridge aloft weakens ahead of a mid upper level trough to the
north. However, above average temperatures and dry weather
conditions are favored through the extended.

Aviation As of 10:50 am pdt Saturday... WidespreadVFR through
the duration at all TAF sites. Breezy onshore winds by the
afternoon, especially along the coast. Models all showing a few
low marine clouds attempting to sneak into the monterey region
around sunrise tomorrow, however, confidence is low.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. West winds 14-16 kt after 22z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. Some low clouds possible around
sunrise.

Fire weather As of 3:30 am pdt Saturday... A warming and drying
trend will start this afternoon and continue at least into at
least Tuesday morning. In addition to the warm temperatures there
will be lowering humidity values and periods of gusty northeast
winds across the north bay hills, especially across the napa
county hills and the hills of northern sonoma county. Fine fuels
will continue to dry given the lack of marine air and humidity.

Climatology also favors a greatly chance for critical fire
weather conditions for the weekend and next week.

Marine As of 10:50 am pdt Saturday... High pressure offshore
will bring light to breezy north to northwest winds today and
through the coming days. The northwest swell train that first
arrived several days ago will continue to weaken.
