Synopsis Strengthening high pressure will continue a warming
trend today. However, onshore surface winds will persist, keeping
temperatures seasonably cool at the coast. Seasonable
temperatures, along with areas of night and morning low clouds,
are forecast through the end of the week and into the upcoming
weekend.

Discussion As of 3:05 am pdt Tuesday... The marine layer has
compressed slightly since yesterday as an upper level ridge over
the eastern pacific builds inland across northern california.

Meanwhile, surface high pressure to our north over oregon and far
northern california is maintaining a moderate north-to-south
pressure gradient of nearly 5 mb from acv to sfo. The result has
been locally gusty north winds across the higher hills of the
north bay. These gusty winds, in conjunction will rather poor
overnight humidity recoveries in the hills above 2000 feet, is
somewhat concerning from a fire weather perspective. However,
winds in the north bay hills are forecast to subside by mid
morning, and are therefore not expected to have a prolonged or
significant impact.

The combination of a shallower marine layer and reduced onshore
flow has resulted in less inland development of low clouds
overnight compared to the past few nights, especially across the
north and east bay. Therefore, many inland areas are expected to
experience more prolonged sunshine today. In addition, subsidence
under the building upper level ridge has warmed the airmass aloft
a few additional degrees c since yesterday. These factors suggest
that afternoon highs today will be warmer then yesterday,
especially across inland areas. However, persistent onshore flow
at the surface will limit the amount of warming to about 3 to 5
degrees in most areas, and also prevent some coastal areas from
clearing today.

Today will likely be the warmest day of the week. Slightly cooler
temperatures are forecast for Wednesday as an upper trough settles
into the pacific northwest and the ridge over california begins to
weaken. Further cooling is forecast for Thursday as the trough
digs into the northern great basin and the ridge retreats
offshore. There will also likely be an increase in inland
development of night and morning low clouds over the next few
days.

Slight warming is expected on Friday and Saturday as the upper
ridge builds back towards the coast. Despite the changes in
temperatures anticipated during the forecast period, temperatures
are not forecast to vary all that much from seasonal averages
through the week and into next weekend.

In the longer range, the GFS ensemble mean and ECMWF ensemble
mean both forecast an upper trough to be centered along the west
coast next Monday and Tuesday. It therefore appears likely that
cooler than normal conditions will dominate the first half of next
week.

Aviation As of 10:52 pm pdt Monday... For 06z tafs. A robust
northerly gradient of nearly 5 mb coupled with a compressing
marine layer around 1500 ft will keep low clouds from intruding
as far inland as it has the last few nights. Low clouds will
move in through coastal gaps and valley affecting monterey bay
terminals late tonight and bay area terminals early Tuesday
morning. Confidence remains low to moderate. Light to locally
variable winds will prevail overnight then ramp up again Tuesday
afternoon becoming onshore around 10 to 15 kt.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR conditions through late tonight. MVFR cigs
expected to return around 12-13z Tuesday morning. Clearing is
anticipated around 16-17z Tuesday morning. Light onshore flow
will prevail overnight. A short period of offshore flow is
expected between 15z-21z Tuesday over ksfo. Winds are expected to
ramp up again Tuesday afternoon to around 15 kt.

Sfo bridge approach... Approach will be clear through tonight.

Impacts to approach should be short lived Tuesday morning with
light offshore flow aloft and shallow marine layer.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr conditions will prevail over ksns
with kmry filling in overnight. Clearing is anticipated around
19z Tuesday. Light to locally variable winds will prevail
overnight then ramp up again Tuesday afternoon becoming onshore
around 10 kt.

Marine As of 2:32 am pdt Tuesday... Moderate and gusty
northerly winds will continue over the northern outer waters
through Wednesday afternoon producing steep fresh swells. A
thermal trough along the coast will maintain light southerly winds
and seas over the near shore waters. Light winds are expected
over the bays except for typical gusty afternoon seabreeze.
