Synopsis A cooling trend will continue through the end of the
week as an upper low slowly approaches the northern california
coast. Areas of drizzle or light rain are possible in coastal
areas late Thursday night and again Friday night. There is also a
slight chance of showers Friday night into Saturday for the far
northern portions of the north bay as the upper low finally pushes
inland to our north. Dry conditions along with a slight warming
trend appears likely early next week.

Discussion As of 8:55 pm pdt Wednesday... An upper low centered
about 500 miles west of point arena this evening is drifting
slowly eastward. This low has already had an impact on our weather
by cooling us off over the past few days. Over the weekend our
temperatures were ten degrees or more above normal, but by today
most locations had cooled to near normal or as much as five
degrees below normal. The marine layer has deepened to about 2000
feet, and further marine layer deepening is likely over the next
few days as the low continues to move slowly eastward. This will
mean continued cooling through the end of the week, especially for
inland areas.

In addition to cooling, the approach of the upper low will also
result in light precipitation chances. First, very light rain or
drizzle is possible in coastal areas late Thursday night and
Friday morning as a shortwave trough rotating around the low
approaches the coast and interacts with the deep moist boundary
layer. Then, as the upper low approaches the ca or border on
Friday night, light rain or drizzle is possible once again in
coastal areas. In addition, there is a slight chance of shower
activity Friday night and Saturday across northern sonoma county
and northern napa county, which will be in close enough proximity
to the upper low. Rainfall totals through Saturday are not likely
to reach a tenth of an inch in any one location, and most of our
forecast area will likely remain dry. A forecast update was
completed earlier this evening to add light rain chances to
coastal areas late Thursday night into Friday morning and again
late Friday night into Saturday morning.

The upper low will move well inland by late in the weekend, but
then a weak and dry system is forecast to drop in from the north
which will keep temps cool into the early part of next week.

Temperatures are not expected to warm back to normal until about
the middle of next week.

Aviation As of 10:45 pm pdt Wednesday... Lower level cooling
is continuing to lift and weaken the marine layer inversion. A
negative tilt, amplifying mid level trough arrives Thursday night
which should further weaken and mix out the marine layer. Forecast
confidence in the 06z tafs is low to slightly more than moderate
on ceiling bases, timing and duration.

Vicinity of ksfo... Westerly wind 5 to 10 knots tonight.VFR MVFR
tonight,VFR returns by late Thursday morning. Gusty westerly winds
Thursday afternoon near 20 knots.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR tonight into Thursday morning,VFR returns
by late Thursday morning.

Marine As of 8:31 pm pdt Wednesday... Winds will remain generally
light over the coastal waters overnight, though locally breezy
conditions could develop near coastal gaps or prominent points
during the day on Thursday. Light to moderate seas will continue
through the forecast period with a mixed south and northwest swell
developing late in the week.

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.
