Synopsis A gradual warming trend will continue through the first
half of the workweek as high pressure across the eastern pacific
builds over california. While slightly cooling is expected late in
the week, temperatures are forecast to remain above seasonal
averages.

Discussion As of 01:58 pm pdt Sunday... Sunny conditions
persist over the region this afternoon as the air mass aloft warms
in response to weak offshore flow and building high pressure over
the eastern pacific. Meanwhile, at the surface, winds along the
coast remain light and slightly onshore while portions of the
interior are experiencing weak north northeast winds. These
conditions have resulted in a region- wide warming and drying
trend that will continue into the midweek time frame.

Look for temperatures overnight to remain on the cool side of
average for most valley and coastal locations while a more noticeable
warming trend begins in the hills. Temperatures region-wide will
continue on a warming trend Monday and ramp up Tuesday into
Wednesday as surface flow becomes predominantly offshore. By
midweek, 850 mb temperatures are forecast to approach 20 deg c and
will allow for afternoon high temperatures to reach into the
mid upper 80s at the coast with widespread 90s inland. However, even
the warmest inland areas are likely to stay below 100 degrees and a
more uniform temperature spread in the 80s to mid 90s appears most
likely Tuesday through Thursday. With this said, the threat for
heat related illnesses will likely remain in the low to moderate
category given decent overnight cooling.

Slight cooling is then forecast by Friday as weak onshore flow
returns to the coast in response to a mid upper level trough pushing
inland over the pacific northwest. However, the ridge of high
pressure does not completely get replaced and temperatures region-
wide will remain at or slightly above seasonal averages. The medium
to longer range forecast models agree that an upper level ridge will
once again become the dominate weather feature across our region by
late next weekend. This will likely lead to another warming trend by
next Sunday into Monday.

Aviation As of 4:59 pm pdt Sunday... Sct-bkn cirrus cloud coverage
associated with upper level divergence quickly sweeping SE with the
mid-latitude jet stream late this afternoon. High confidenceVFR
forecast for tonight through Monday as dry offshore flow and very
good visibilities prevail.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. A few westerly wind gusts to 20-25 knots until
04z this evening. Light surface wind shifting over to n-ne late tonight
into early Monday afternoon. Westerly winds are forecast to resume
from 22z Monday through Monday evening.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. Onshore winds becoming light and shifting
over to e-se direction late tonight and Monday morning. Onshore wind
returns Monday afternoon and evening.

Fire weather As of 3:30 am pdt Sunday... Northerly winds have
eased in the hills since yesterday, but models indicate that
north winds will increase this morning and peak during the late
morning hours. Winds are expected to be strongest across the
north bay, although locally gusty winds are also likely in the
east bay hills. Relative humidity recoveries have been poor in the
hills overnight, with rh values remaining below 30 percent on the
higher peaks and ridges. Poor overnight humidity recoveries and
periods of moderate and gusty north to northeast winds are
forecast to persist through at least Tuesday morning. The most
critical fire weather conditions will remain over the north bay
mountains, particularly on Monday night and Tuesday morning when
winds are forecast to be at their strongest. A red flag warning
remains in effect for elevations above 1000 feet in the north bay
through Tuesday morning.

Marine As of 4:40 pm pdt Sunday... High pressure aloft will
allow a thermal trough to develop at the surface over the coastal
waters. This will keep the strongest northerly winds over the
northern outer waters, west of point reyes with lighter wind and
seas over the near shore waters. Generally light wind and seas are
forecast in the bays the next few days. The upper ridge will stay
in place through the 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.
