307 am pdt Sun may 28 2017

Synopsis Dry weather and seasonable temperatures are forecast for
the remainder of the holiday weekend. Slight cooling is expected for
inland areas on Tuesday and Wednesday, but otherwise little
change is forecast through the week.

Discussion As of 3:05 am pdt Sunday... The marine layer has
been rather ill-defined overnight and low clouds have been slow to
develop, especially from santa cruz county southward. However,
satellite currently shows that low clouds have filled in around
most of san francisco bay and are gradually developing elsewhere.

Low clouds are expected to clear from inland areas by late this
morning, but only partial afternoon clearing is likely at the
coast. The airmass above the marine boundary layer has warmed
since yesterday and this will translate into warmer afternoon
highs for most inland areas. Temperatures in coastal areas today
will probably be similar to yesterday.

The upper ridge currently centered over california is forecast to
shift gradually eastward over the next few days. This is expected
to result in at least modest cooling in coastal areas on memorial
day. But temperatures for inland areas are forecast to hold
steady. The upshot is that our area can expect only minor changes
for the remainder of the holiday weekend, with areas of night and
morning low clouds continuing. Temperatures will remain slightly
cooler than normal in coastal areas and near normal inland.

A weak upper trough is forecast to gradually develop near the west
coast by Tuesday. This should result in at least modest cooling on
Tuesday and Wednesday, especially inland, as a cooler airmass
overspreads our area. However, model guidance, especially the
ecmwf, indicate very little change in temperatures as we move
through the week.

The models forecast periodic isolated light precipitation across
northern california from late Monday through Wednesday as the
upper trough settles in. Nearly all of this precipitation is
expected remain over the higher mountains to our north and east.

However, the 00z ECMWF shows isolated light precipitation across
portions of our area on Wednesday as a shortwave trough moves
through. Forecast confidence is not yet high enough to add rain
chances to the forecast. However, patchy drizzle is certainly
possible at times in coastal areas, particularly from late Monday
night through Wednesday morning.

Aviation As of 10:30 pm pdt Saturday... Northwest flow spreading
stratus into the sfo bay area and approaching the mry bay area.

Upper level trough moving out of the area will result in a more
compressed marine layer tonight as ridging builds in. A little
earlier clearing Sunday.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR CIGS clearing by 17z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Stratus approaching the mry bay area
from the northwest. This is a favorable direction for stratus and
ifr CIGS are expected after 09z. Clearing 17-18z.

Marine As of 10:30 pm pdt Saturday... High pressure will
strengthen off the california coast resulting in increasing
northwest winds Sunday. Winds will decrease Tuesday night as a
weak frontal system moves through the coastal waters.

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 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.
