Synopsis A cooling trend is forecast to persist through late
week and into the upcoming weekend as an upper level trough
approaches from the pacific. This system may produce a few showers
over the north bay late Friday into Saturday as it pushes inland
north of our region, yet widespread rainfall is unlikely.

Discussion As of 3:00 am pdt Wednesday... Onshore flow is
directly east-west as the sfo-sac gradient is 2 mb and the sfo-acv
gradient is neutral. This gives the marine air the maximum effect
over the district. With the marine layer holding around 1500 feet
night and morning low clouds can be expected around much of the
mry and sfo bay area while temperatures will remain as cool as
yesterday.

An upper low centered 750 miles west of point arena will drift
slowly ene. As it gets closer the marine layer will deepen even
more Thursday through Saturday bringing cool marine air into the
interior valleys. Models showing night and morning low clouds
spreading into places like livermore and concord Thursday night.

Eventually the marine layer will mix out but the airmass will be
colder so temperatures will continue below normal. By Saturday
highs around the entire CWA will range from the upper 50s at the
coast to the lower 70s in the far interior. Models continue to
show the upper low moving into northern california on Saturday.

Precipitation chances appear to be very slim and confined to
widely scattered showers in the north bay.

Medium range models now show a slow warming trend for the
beginning and middle of next week as the low moves further inland.

Temperatures should return to near their normal values by about
Wednesday.

Aviation As of 10:37 am pdt Wednesday for 18z tafs. Low
ceilings impacted all TAF terminals this morning with widespread
lifr ifr MVFR conditions. Visible satellite shows the gradual
eroding mixing-out of the stratus as of the 18z TAF publication
and think most terminals will transition toVFR conditions in the
next hour or so. The fort ord profiler indicates the marine layer
as gradually increased over the past 12 hours from about 1,500 ft
to 2,000 ft deep, likely in response to the approaching upper
level low. More of the same is expected this tonight with low
clouds again for Thursday morning.

Vicinity of ksfo... Transitioning from MVFR toVFR conditions at
the TAF publication time as this morning's stratus mixes out.

West to northwest winds are expected this afternoon around 15 kt.

The main concern turns to what is going to happen this
evening overnight with the stratus return. At this point think
we'll see bkn conditions return sometime after 6-7z Thursday, or
several hours earlier than this morning. Will continue to monitor
and update the TAF accordingly.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR ifr conditions at kmry until late
morning as stratus lingers over the terminal. There is a non-zero
chance we could see the low clouds persist into the afternoon, but
confidence is too low to adjust the TAF as so. Expect low clouds
to return sometime in the late afternoon evening hours with
overcast conditions again for tomorrow morning.

Marine As of 10:21 am pdt Wednesday... Generally light to
locally moderate west to northwest winds will continue through
the week. Light to moderate seas will also persist through the
forecast period with a mixed south and northwest swell developing
late in the week.
