Synopsis A gradual warming trend will continue through
Wednesday as high pressure builds over the region. Cooler and
breezy conditions return on Thursday as a cold front sweeps
through the region. While a few light rain showers will be
possible, most locations will remain dry. The ridge will then
rebuild back over the region late in the week resulting in another
warming trend heading into the upcoming weekend.

Discussion As of 8:59 pm pdt Tuesday... Temperatures finished
off the day an average of 10 degrees warmer than yesterday across
most locations. Highs topped out in the 60s to mid 70s this
afternoon... About 5 to 10 degrees above average under sunny skies.

High pressure situated over the eastern pacific will continue to
ridge across northern california this evening resulting in
continued dry weather, clear skies and moderate to locally gusty
winds across the district. Windiest location persist across the
north and east bay mountains as well as select locations along the
coastal ranges. Temperatures will continue to climb Wednesday as
high pressure prevails. Highs in the mid 60s and 70s with a few
lower 80s expected in the afternoon.

A shift in the pattern is expected late Wednesday night as an
upper level low approaches from the north. The low and associated
cold front will then slides south across the region bringing a
slight chance of precipitation and cooler temperatures to the
area. Models continue to indicate that the greatest rain chances
will remain to the east with only a slight chance over the
forecast area for late Wednesday night into Thursday. Gusty winds
are also expected to accompany this system with strongest winds
anticipated over elevated terrain of the north and east bays as
well as along the coastal ranges. Breezy conditions will continue
into Friday with our local high resolution model indicating a
period of strong northerly winds late Thursday night into Friday
morning in the wake of this system. Strongest winds are expected
between 09z-15z Friday and will again impact the north and east
bay mountains as well as the coastal ranges with coastal waters
also being impacted. Slightly warmer temperatures are expected
Friday.

From previous discussion... High pressure is forecast to rebuild
back across the region late Friday into the upcoming weekend. As a
result, inland areas will rebound back into the 70s and lower 80s
with mostly sunny skies. Medium range guidance suggest dry
weather and seasonably mild temperatures will persist into early
next week as well with the ridge aloft. While confidence this far
out remains low, the models do hint at the potential return to a
wetter pattern late next week.

Aviation As of 11:02 pm pdt Tuesday...VFR persists this evening.

Lower level inversions have strengthened under mid-upper level
ridging which may provide the cap necessary for a more organized
stratus and/or fog pattern visiting the coastline as early as
Wednesday afternoon and evening. This would precede the passage of
a cold front Thursday morning thus an intrusion of stratus and/or
fog as well as some light rain or drizzle are increasingly likely
later Wednesday evening into Thursday morning. Low-moderate
confidence CIGS forecasts later half of the forecast period.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR tonight and Wednesday, becoming MVFR briefly
ifr Wednesday evening with light rain or drizzle developing. Westerly
wind gusts to near 25 knots 19z-04z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR except possibly could see local MVFR cigs
near sunrise Wednesday, otherwise it looks favorable forVFR in 06z
taf cycle. Ifr CIGS due to stratus and/or fog possibly developing
Wednesday evening and night.

Marine As of 10:39 pm pdt Tuesday... Gusty northwest winds will
continue over the coastal waters into Wednesday. Gusty westerly winds
are possible over the bays by Wednesday evening. A cold front will
sweep southeastward over the bay area early Thursday morning with
a slight chance of showers. Surface high pressure will then build
over far northern california Thursday and Friday resulting in near
gale force northwest winds over the coastal waters for late week.

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.
