Marine Weather and Tides
Shell Ridge, CA

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis A warming trend is forecast to begin on Monday and
continue through much of the week as high pressure builds over

Discussion As of 09:00 am pdt Monday... First and foremost, did
a quick update to fine tune the cloud cover marine layer forecast
this morning. Interesting satellite imagery showing cloudy skies
for the N and E bay, san francisco and santa clara valley, but
clear skies from moss landing southward. Ft. Ord profiler shows no
marine layer, but the morning koak puts this inversion about
2,000 feet.

Also, tweaked temperatures upward in a few spots given sunny start
around monterey.

The rest of the forecast will heavily focus on the upcoming
warming trend and any potential heat risk concerns.

Prev discussion As of 3:02 am pdt Monday... Satellite fog product is
showing coastal low clouds extending through the monterey bay and
into the hollister valley, as well as locally into portions of
the san francisco bay area. There is much less inland extent to
the stratus compared to last night as the marine layer begins to
decrease, in response to high pressure which will begin building
into the state from the west.

High temperatures today are forecast to be much warmer than
Sunday's, especially inland areas which are expected to be in the
80s. This upper level ridge is progged to build in over the west,
peaking on Wednesday before shifting to the east over the desert
southwest. High temperatures across inland areas on Wednesday are
forecast to approach the century mark, with mid 60s to mid 70s at
the immediate coast.

The ridge will weaken somewhat by the end of the workweek as weak
impulses move across the pacific northwest. High temperatures
will moderate somewhat, but remain in the 80s and 90s across
inland areas.

Aviation As of 04:33 am pdt Sunday... For 12z tafs. Stratus has
been filling in clearing out and filling back in overnight. Cigs
have cleared out of kmry and ksns, but may build back in over the
next couple of hours. Low clouds seem to be firmly in place over
the north bay and sf bay regions. MVFR ifr conditions will persist
through the late morning for those locations (~18z). Any low
cloud redevelopment over the south bay and monterey areas may
clear sooner. Generally light winds through the period with
onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt.

Moderate confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR conditions through around 18z. Once cigs
clear,VFR conditions will prevail through late tonight. Generally
light winds becoming onshore at around 15 kt this afternoon.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Low CIGS have cleared away for now, but
may build back in over the next few hours. Any stratus
redevelopment is not expected to be long lasting.VFR conditions
through late tonight before low clouds return. Generally light
winds through the period.

Marine As of 2:11 am pdt Monday... Light southerly winds will
continue through the morning before becoming northwesterly. Winds
will remain generally light through mid-week before increasing.

Seas will also remain light with a mixed northwest and southerly

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
