Synopsis Cooling will continue early this week as an upper
trough of low pressure becomes nearly stationary over the eastern
pacific. Coastal areas will see little in the way of change with
continued night and morning low clouds and patchy fog.

Discussion As of 8:15 am pdt Sunday... Widspread clouds this
morning thanks to a deep marine layer and a weak onshore flow at
the surface. Clouds should burn-off toward the coast by late in
the morning. High temperature range will be much less than a
typical august day. Inland most spots will just be in the mid 70s
to the upper 80s while at the coast many areas will be in the 60s
and 70s.

Current forecast appears on track. No major updates planned
although may do a minor update in a bit with information on clouds
for tomorrow morning during the eclipse.

Previous discussion A nearly stationary upper level closed low
will remain along the central coast through early to mid week.

Cooler temperatures will continue this week with comfortable day
time highs expected most places with only far inland locations
experiencing warm to hot temperatures. Wildfire smoke from the
pacific northwest began to mix into the air over the bay area and
central coast yesterday. Widespread low clouds and fog over the
coastal waters will be ushered inland this morning on onshore
breezes with returning low clouds and fog again tonight and Monday
morning. Cloud coverage mid-late Monday morning will be
challenging to predict much of it depending upon the depth and
strength of the marine layer, though of course, the farther inland
one is the better chances there are for clear skies during the
solar eclipse. Patchy high clouds are possible over the area
Monday as well. Medium range forecasts indicate some strengthening
of an upper level high over the desert southwest and california.

Aviation As of 10:40 am pdt Sunday for 18z tafs. Visible
satellite shows this morning's overcast skies continuing to mix-
out. ExpectVFR conditions at all terminals by late morning,
though monterey bay terminals could be a bit later. Haze and smoke
could cause visibilities to lower a bit, but confidence is too
low for any given terminal to include in the taf. Depth of the
marine layer continues to climb as an upper level low sits off the
southern california coast. Expect the return of the clouds
overnight.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR conditions expected to prevail through the
day with increasing west wind around 15 kt this afternoon. Expect
a return to MVFR conditions overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Webcams this morning reveal haze and smoke
associated with northern california and oregon wildfires. Limited
slant range likely through the day. Otherwise, similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR ifr CIGS at kmry and ksns this
morning will likely transition toVFR for the afternoon. Some
guidance suggests kmry may remain locked in bkn ovc conditions
through the day, but currently leaning on persistence from
yesterday in the taf. Will amend if necessary.

Marine As of 10:30 am pdt Sunday... Expect moderate northwest
winds to continue over the northern outer waters through tonight.

Accompanying breezy winds will aid in producing locally steep wind
waves before winds begin to subside tonight.

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 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.
