254 am pst Thu nov 15 2018

Synopsis Smoke and haze will continue to produce poor air
quality over much of the san francisco bay through late week. Dry
and mild conditions are also likely to persist through early next
week with the potential for some improvement in smoky conditions
by the weekend as weak onshore flow returns. A more significant
pattern change appears likely during the latter half of next week
with the potential for widespread rainfall.

Discussion As of 02:49 am pst Thursday... Smoke from the camp
fire continues to adversely impact the region this morning,
especially around the greater san francisco bay area where
visibility has dropped below 2sm at times. These conditions are
resulting in poor air quality with no significant improvement
forecast through late week as weak offshore low persist.

Conditions are better this morning over portions of the north bay
and around the monterey bay region however. The latest hrrr smoke
model also supports ongoing smoky conditions region-wide through
at least the next 36 hours or so.

Day-to-day changes will be minor through the upcoming weekend with
daytime temperatures warming into the 60s and 70s with overnight
lows in the middle 30s across the colder inland locations to middle
40s near the coast bays. Very dry conditions are also likely to
persist, even near the coast through late week. As mentioned, weak
offshore flow will continue to advect smoke over the region until
the large scale pattern aloft changes. Slight improvement in surface
moisture and onshore flow looks possible by the upcoming weekend as
a weak mid upper level low develops offshore and begins to approach
southern california. However, not expecting smoky and hazy
conditions to completely scour out until sometime next week.

The much needed pattern change continues to look likely at some
point next week based off of the latest forecast models. The
aforementioned mid upper level low is forecast to first push
inland over southern california while dry conditions persist
across our region early in the week. The gfs, ECMWF and canadian
models are in decent agreement with the development of a deepening
upper level trough approaching the west coast late next week. It
is latter in the week that the ECMWF and canadian models bring a
short-wave trough into the pacific northwest with precipitation as
far south as our region late Wednesday into thanksgiving day.

However, the GFS keeps a short-wave ridge across our region with
dry conditions over the entire west coast through midweek. The
models come into better agreement by Friday with cooler, wetter
conditions spreading across much of the region. With all this
said, forecast confidence remains low at this time in the details
with respect to timing of precipitation and amounts. However,
confidence is higher with respect to an overall pattern change
that would potentially bring rainfall to the region late next
week.

Aviation As of 09:27 pm pst Wednesday... For 06z tafs. Smoke
continues to be an issue with reduced visibilities still being
reported across area terminals. Mainly MVFR vis with isolated
instances of ifr. Latest smoke model forecast does not indicate
that this will change overnight. Expect reduced vis at the surface
as well as slant range vis issues to persist due to smoke. Winds
will remain generally light through the period.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR vis due to smoke with generally light
winds. Slant range vis issues expected to persist. Latest hrrr
smoke forecast does not suggest much change in smoke conditions
through at least tonight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to terminal.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR prevailing with periods of reduced
vis to MVFR due to smoke.

Marine As of 02:49 am pst Thursday... North to northwest winds
will prevail over the coastal waters through the end of the week
and into the coming weekend. Expect locally breezy winds near
coastal gaps and favored coastal jet locations during the
afternoon and evening hours. In incoming northwest swell of 5 to 9
ft will arrive to the waters over the next 12 to 24 hours.

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.
