Marine Weather and Tides
Redwood, CA

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis Unseasonably cool today with scattered showers ending
overnight. Dry conditions return Saturday with temperatures
trending towards normal. A warming trend will begin Sunday
through Tuesday as high pressure builds into the state. A cooling
trend returns by midweek as another upper trough approaches the
coast.

Discussion As of 8:51 am pdt Friday... Radar scans show a few
showers still rotating through into santa cruz and santa clara
counties. Overnight rainfall totals of up to nearly two tenths of
an inch as showers associated with an upper level low moved across
central and northern california. The upper low is currently
located right about over the san francisco bay area, with most of
the shower activity occurring east and north of this low. Heavier
showers are currently occurring in the sacramento valley as well
as a few lightning strikes being noted in the northern sac valley.

This shower activity is expected to continue through the
overnight hours as the upper low slowly edges eastward. High temps
today are expected to be similar to yesterday's - cool, mainly in
the upper 50s to upper 60s.

After the low moves to the east, high pressure will gradually fill
in from the west. Look for a gradual warming trend beginning on
Saturday and extending through memorial day. High temperatures by
Monday are forecast to be 5 to 20 degrees warmer than today's,
with inland areas possibly topping out in the upper 80s to lower
90s! Near-coastal sites will remain more moderate with 60s to mid
70s expected.

By midweek another upper through is progged to approach the coast.

This will bring another cooling trend to the area and a deepening
of the marine layer and enhanced onshore flow.

Aviation As of 10:42 am pdt Friday... For 18z tafs. A few
scattered showers remain across the area and will taper off into
the afternoon. CIGS will continue to switch between MVFR andVFR
as the upper low moves inland. Cloud ceilings are ranging from
1800 to about 4000 ft. Lower CIGS should start to lift as the
afternoon approaches and showers become less frequent. Due to
ample low to mid level moisture, expect sct to bkn CIGS to
continue through most of the period between 3000 and 5000 ft.

Winds will remain light and become onshore for most sites this
afternoon at around 10 to 15 kt.

Moderate confidence on winds. Low confidence on cigs.

Vicinity of ksfo... CIGS currently around 2000 ft occasionally
lifting to 3000 ft. Borderline MVFRVFR conditions will continue
into the late afternoon. BriefVFR conditions are possible this
afternoon into this evening before MVFR CIGS redevelop and settle
in through tomorrow morning. SW winds around 10 kt currently and
will continue over the next few hours before winds turn onshore
this afternoon. Vcsh due to occasional weak showers through 03-05z
Saturday.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFRVFR CIGS will continue through the
morning with periodic weak showers moving through the area.

Possible to seeVFR conditions this afternoon before MVFR cigs
return this evening. Onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt.

Marine As of 08:13 am pdt Friday... Light winds will continue
across the coastal waters this morning before northwesterly winds
increase later today into tonight. Gusty northwest winds will
persist through much of the weekend. Mixed swells are expected
through the forecast period with a moderate northwest swell and a
longer period southwest swell.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
