840 pm pdt Fri jun 23 2017

Synopsis Cooling trend started today for most areas as onshore
flow returns. The far interior valleys will remain seasonably
warm through this evening. The overall trend this weekend and into
next week will be a return to more seasonable temperatures along
with more extensive night and morning low clouds followed by sunny
afternoons.

Discussion As of 8:40 pm pdt Friday... Temperatures cooled
considerably over the last 24 hours as the marine layer gradually
deepened and onshore flow returned. Most locations cooled anywhere
from 5 to 15 degrees with a couple locations dropping as much as
20 degrees from yesterday. High temperatures topped out in the mid
60s to low 70s along the coast, mid 70s to low 80s around the bay
and mid 80s to low 90s over the interior. A few locations managed
to soar into the 100 to 108 range over the warmest southern
interior valleys of monterey and san benito counties. Temperatures
have cooled since this afternoon and with the trend toward cooler
temperatures for Saturday the heat advisory for the interior
portions of the east bay, santa clara county and the mountain of
monterey and san benito counties will be allowed to expire at 9 pm
tonight.

The cooling trend will continue through the next few days with
temperatures falling on average 3 to 5 degrees each day through
the weekend and into early next week. Coastal areas will see
little change while inland temperatures will see larger changes as
cooler marine air reaches farther inland. No heat advisories are
anticipated through the weekend.

Low clouds and patchy fog will also return to the region this
weekend as an approaching upper level trough deepens the marine
layer. Patchy drizzle will also be likely by Monday as the trough
axis moves across the district.

From previous discussion... One major change to the forecast was
to include a slight chance of thunderstorms over monterey san
benito late tonight into Saturday. Confidence is rather low, but
if it verifies impacts could be huge, especially from a fire
weather perspective. For several days now, models have been keying
in on the moisture convection near baja tracking north. Latest
models do bring the mid-upper level moisture (700-500mb) northward
tonight and early Saturday. In addition to the moisture
advection, upper level instability increases. Mu CAPE through the
layer increases with modified total totals greater than 30 all
indicating upper level lift. At this point only giving it a 15 pct
chance of occurring, but still wanted to add it to the forecast.

Medium and longer range models still indicate later next week and
towards the end of the month show more pronounced ridging with
potential for another round of weak offshore flow and associated
warming. CPC has the 6-10 forecast above normal temps for ca.

Aviation As of 4:50 pm pdt Friday... For 00z tafs. Widespread
low clouds and fog continue at the coast and were beginning to
developing locally inland by late Friday afternoon. Marine layer
remains relatively shallow and so ifr ceilings probably won't
develop around sf bay until after evening rush. However, ifr
ceilings will likely develop near monterey bay by early evening.

Onshore flow has increased so there will likely be earlier and
more widespread development of low CIGS overnight. In addition, a
weak upper level disturbance approaching from the south on
Saturday morning will produce some mid high level clouds on
Saturday and delay clearing of low clouds due to deepening marine
layer. Moderate afternoon and evening onshore winds.

Forecast confidence: moderate
vicinity of ksfo...VFR conditions expected to persist through the
evening. Ifr CIGS expected to return overnight tonight, sometime
around 10z at ksfo, and sooner for koak. Westerly winds around 20
knots through early evening, and then diminishing. Low clouds
expected to clear by around 17z Saturday.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Similar to yesterday, low CIGS likely to
develop at ksns a few hours before at kmry due to light southerly
flow along the coast. Ifr ceilings then expected overnight and
through much of Saturday morning with later clearing on Saturday
compared to today.

Marine As of 2:29 pm pdt Friday... Light southerly winds will
continue over the coastal waters tonight before increasing
slightly and turning westerly and northwesterly by Saturday
afternoon. Westerly winds through the golden gate gap and across
the northern san francisco bay will be breezy, especially during
the afternoon hours over the next few days. Wave heights and swell
will decrease through the coming days.

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.
