Synopsis Seasonably cool temperatures can be expected today
with a very gradual warming trend through Friday as a ridge
builds into our region. Outside of drizzle, dry weather the next
7 days with night and morning coastal clouds followed by sunny
afternoons is forecast.

Discussion As of 7:37 pm pdt Tuesday... An onshore wind
continues this evening with a weak upper level trough residing
over norcal. Average temperatures today were within two to three
degrees of normal for this day; it was a nice late june day in the
bay area. Low clouds will continue to spread inland tonight as
the marine layer is nearly 3,000 feet deep. Otherwise not too
much change indicated for the near term.

Prev discussion As of 1:03 pm pdt Tuesday... Visible satellite
shows the morning stratus continuing to clear out across most
inland areas. A few locations remain impacted with low clouds as
of 1 pm pdt, including san francisco and oakland airports. The san
francisco to sacramento surface pressure gradient has increased
slightly from what it was at 24 hours ago (2.6 mb vs. 2.1 mb), and
the marine layer is a bit deeper between 2,000 and 2,500 ft.

Expect skies to continue to improve through the middle of the
afternoon.

Synoptically we still have an upper level high centered over baja
california that is enabling hot and dry conditions to persist
over the southern third of the golden state. Closer to our area,
temperatures are much cooler than they were several days ago with
zonal flow overhead and onshore flow. Expect temperatures to reach
the upper 50s to the low 70s along the coast, and 70s to middle
80s across the inland valleys and mountains. The santa lucia
range, southern salinas valley, and pinnacles national park areas
will likely see temperatures MAX out in the upper 80s to the low
90s this afternoon.

On Wednesday temperatures will nudge upward a few degrees for most
inland areas as high pressure begins to rebuild over the west
coast. This gradual warming trend will continue through Friday
with temperatures within a few degrees of normal for the end of
june. Coastal areas may see subtle warming through the end of the
week, but by only several degrees at most. Models are advertising
a short wave trough to push onshore for the weekend that would
bring some cooling to the area. Aside the isolated coastal drizzle
associated with morning marine stratus, dry conditions are
expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

Aviation As of 10:43 pm pdt Tuesday... For 06z tafs. Low clouds
have begun to fill back in over the bays and valleys through the
coastal gaps and canyons. Widespread low clouds are expected
through tonight and into the morning hours. Clouds will clear back
to the coast around 17z-18z Wednesday. Moderate onshore flow will
continue to diminish overnight.

Moderate confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR CIGS will lower to ifr after 08z tonight.

Cigs anticipated to clear around 17z Wednesday morning. Moderate
onshore flow will gradually diminish overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr lifr conditions will lower to lifr
overnight. Anticipated skies to clear around 17z-18z Wednesday
morning. Moderate onshore flow will continue to diminish
through the night.

Marine As of 9:00 pm pdt Tuesday... High pressure will continue
to build into the eastern pacific through the rest of the week.

As such, moderate to strong northerly winds will continue to
increase over the waters and bays through the majority of the
forecast period. Southerly swell and wind driven waves will
dominate and persist through Wednesday morning.

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.
