Synopsis Generally weak offshore flow is forecast to persist
through at least midweek with temperatures near or above seasonal
averages. Onshore winds increase slightly late in the week which
should help moisten conditions while daytime temperatures remain
mild. A storm system is then forecast to push inland to our north
early next week with cooling temperatures and potential for light
rain over northern california.

Discussion As of 01:52 pm pdt Tuesday... The upper level
pattern over the region will change little through midweek as
mid upper level high pressure over the eastern pacific extends
inland over the pacific northwest and an upper level low remains
over the desert southwest. This will keep light offshore winds
across the interior and result in seasonably warm conditions each
afternoon. Mostly clear conditions are likely overnight with
seasonably cool temperatures in the lower elevations while mild
temperatures persist in the hills mountains with continued
offshore winds.

By late in the week, weak onshore flow will potentially develop
as the upper level low slowly moves to the northeast and high
pressure builds further inland across the west coast. This may
allow for a shallow marine layer to develop with the development
of coastal stratus during the late night and early morning hours.

However, confidence is low at this time and widespread cloud cover
is not currently expected through late week. This too may cool
conditions a bit near the coast as offshore flow remains confined
to the inland areas. This will likely lead to pleasant fall
weather conditions over the region through the upcoming weekend.

The medium range models continue to suggest a possible pattern
shift early next week as an upper level trough approaches the
pacific northwest. This would likely at least result in a cooling
trend region-wide with rain chances increasing over northern
california late Monday into Tuesday. Unsettled weather conditions
look to linger into late next week as well with precipitation
dropping as far south as the north bay. However, confidence
remains low on widespread rainfall actually developing over our
region late in the forecast period. Will need to monitor in the
coming days.

Aviation As of 4:45 pm pdt Tuesday... Satellite image shows
stratus over the waters from point reyes to the santa cruz coast.

Stratus has been spreading south into northern mry bay and this
could bring CIGS to the mry bay area terminals this evening.

These clouds are expected to remain near the coast as the marine
layer is shallow and there is weak offshore flow. This is
consistent with model guidance which also keeps low clouds out.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Models keep stratus confined along the
coast but it will have to be watched. Northwest winds to 15 kt
decreasing after 04z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr CIGS after 05z possibly sooner.

Marine As of 04:33 pm pdt Tuesday... High pressure over the
eastern pacific coupled with a thermal trough along the coast will
maintain generally light to locally moderate northwesterly winds
across the coastal waters through much of the forecast period.

Mixed swell will continue with a long period southerly swell
through mid week and a more moderate period northwest swell. A
longer period northwest swell will arrive during the second half
of 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.
