935 am pst Tue nov 21 2017

Synopsis High pressure will bring dry and warmer weather to
the area Tuesday and Wednesday. The high will move east on
Thursday with the next chance of rain late this weekend.

Discussion As of 9:00 am pst Tuesday... A 593dm 500mb high
pressure ridge centered just offshore of baja california will be
the dominant syntopic scale feature for our region over the next
few days as the ridge apex thrusts into the southern 2 3rds of
california. 850mb temperatures will increase to 17-18c, while the
daily record at 850mb is within that same range. As a result,
temperatures at the surface will also likely rise to within record
temperatures for this time of the year. As the ridge is building
from south to north, the areas most likely to be meet or beat
their records are those farther southward, primarily from the
south bay southward, including most of monterey, santa cruz, and
san benito counties. Forecast temperatures are within a degree of
records in parts of the east bay as well. Farther north, such as
in downtown san francisco, forecast temperatures are several
degrees short of records.

Tomorrow will see similar above average, near record temperatures
from the south bay southward, with a few records again at risk.

Models show the ridge weakening on thanksgiving, with around 2 to
4 degrees of cooling versus Wednesday.

Moisture riding over the top of the ridge, a "dirty" ridge
pattern, will bring some thin mid to high level cloud coverage
through the coming days, especially the farther northward you are
located. This moisture will also bring precipitation to extreme
northern california and the pacnw through the coming days. There
is a slight chance that some light precipitation will also fall
over northern napa and sonoma county as the ridge and an
approaching trough push on each other. The next best chance of
rain looks to arrive sometime during the weekend.

The current forecast looks on track, so no updates to the
overnight forecast are planned this morning. Next forecast update
will come early this afternoon.

Previous discussion As of 3:00 am pst Tuesday... The warm front
that brought rain to the north bay has lifted north as upper
level high pressure over southern california strengthens and
builds north. This will lead to a big warmup in temperatures today
through Wednesday. Highs will be in the upper 60s and 70s across
the sfo bay area with 70s to lower 80s in the southern part of the
cwa. Temperatures on Wednesday will be a couple of degrees warmer
than Tuesday and will be the warmest day of the week. We will be
under a southwesterly flow so nighttime temperatures will remain
quite mild.

The ridge will start to flatten on Thursday as an upper level
shortwave moves through the pacific northwest. Temperatures
should cool off slightly and there is a slight chance of rain
reaching far northern sonoma county on Thursday. Partly cloudy but
dry conditions are expected for Friday and Saturday as the ridge
moves a little further to the east.

A weather system will bring a chance of rain to at least the
northern part of the CWA on Sunday. This is consistent with the
gfs solution while the ECMWF is wetter and brings rain chances to
much of the cwa.

Aviation As of 09:30 am pst Tuesday... For 18z tafs. Lingering
low level moisture has led to some reduced vsby this morning
across the N bay santa clara valley and east bay. Expect
conditions to slowly improve given the amount of high level clouds
overhead. Will primarily forecastVFR for most locations with
mid-high level clouds. As usual ksts will be problematic with fog
possible tonight. Other models hint as some low CIGS tonight, but
conf is low and did not include in tafs
vicinity of ksfo... Mid and high level clouds impacting the bay.

Some haze could impact slant wise, but don't have much conf on
that actually being an impact.VFR tonight. Winds light to
moderate.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. Conf is low, but some patch stratus
may be around tomorrow am.

Marine As of 09:27 am pst Tuesday... Light to moderate winds
will prevail over the coastal waters with north winds over
southern waters and south winds over northern waters. Chances of
rain will return to the northern waters towards the end of the
week. West to northwest swell will increase mid-week.
