Synopsis Cooling trend started today for most areas as onshore
flow returns. The far interior valleys will remain seasonably
warm through this evening. The overall trend this weekend and into
next week will be a return to more seasonable temperatures along
with more extensive night and morning low clouds followed by sunny
afternoons.

Discussion As of 01:28 pm pdt Friday... After a prolong period
of heat, the much talked about cool down began today. Afternoon 24
hour trends are still impressive with a solid 10 to 20 degree
drop from Thursday to Friday. Some of the biggest drops are:
santa rosa 17 degrees, livermore 15 degrees and oakland 15
degrees, los altos 19 degrees and spring valley 21 degrees.

However, despite the cool down still want to highlight the
cumulative effects of the prolonged heat combined with highs
exceeding 90 degrees impacting sensitive groups. Far interior
locations might be cooler than Thursday, but will likely end up in
the mid and upper 90s today. Therefore, a heat advisory remains in
effect through this evening for interior east bay, mountains of
monterey cty and interior san benito.

The cool down noticed today will continue through the weekend. No
heat advisories warnings will be needed. In fact, night and
morning low clouds will be common place as temperatures return to
near normal by next week.

One major change to the forecast was to include a slight chance
of thunderstorms over monterey san benito late tonight into
Saturday. Confidence is rather low, but if it verifies impacts
could be huge, especially from a fire weather perspective. For
several days now, models have been keying in on the
moisture convection near baja tracking north. Latest models do
bring the mid-upper level moisture (700-500mb) northward tonight
and early Saturday. In addition to the moisture advection, upper
level instability increases. Mu CAPE through the layer increases
with modified total totals greater than 30 all indicating upper
level lift. At this point only giving it a 15 pct chance of
occurring, but still wanted to add it to the forecast.

Medium and longer range models still indicate later next week and
towards the end of the month show more pronounced ridging with
potential for another round of weak offshore flow and associated
warming. CPC has the 6-10 forecast above normal temps for ca.

Aviation As of 10:41 am pdt Friday... For 18z tafs. Current
visible satellite shows marine layer mixing out nicely over land,
resulting inVFR at all TAF sites. Marine layer is expected to
remain just offshore through the afternoon, but will likely push
back onshore this evening and overnight. Generally light onshore
winds today, except breezy onshore winds through coastal gaps and
valleys, including near ksfo, by this afternoon and evening.

Forecast confidence: moderate
vicinity of ksfo... CurrentlyVFR. Ifr CIGS expected to return
overnight tonight, sometime around 10z at ksfo, and sooner for
koak. Breezy afternoon winds this afternoon, around 15-20 kt.

Sfo bridge approach... Lifr-ifr CIGS expected around 08-09z over
the approach.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR through the afternoon, with early
return of stratus this evening, around 02-03z. Early morning
lifr CIGS and fog possible before sunrise. Generally light winds
this afternoon, occasionally breezy.

Marine As of 10:23 am pdt Friday... Generally light southerly
winds over the coastal waters today. Onshore winds will be breezy
through the golden gate gap and across the northern san francisco
bay. Northwest winds return this weekend. Generally decreasing
seas through the coming days.
