Synopsis Warm offshore pattern will continue at least through
Wednesday with mild nights and breezy winds in the hills. Some
coastal cooling possible by Thursday with a gradual cooling trend
back to more seasonable temperatures by next weekend but with a
continued dry weather pattern.

Discussion As of 08:35 am pdt Monday... Mainly clear skies
prevail over the region again this morning as high pressure builds
over the eastern pacific. With warming conditions aloft, surface
temperatures are generally running a few degrees warmer compared
to 24 hours ago along with slightly lower relative humidity
values. This is setting the stage for the warming trend to
continue today with most areas a few to as much as 8 degrees
warmer than yesterday. With this said, the ongoing forecast for
today remains on track and no updates are needed at this time.

Please see the previous forecast discussion below for additional
details.

Prev discussion As of 3:37 am pdt Monday... Classic september
offshore weather pattern is forecast for much of the upcoming work
week. Synoptic pattern features northerly wind flow aloft with a
thermal trough at the surface over coastal california while the
center of the surface high remains well offshore. Current surface
gradients include 4 mb northerly down the coast with about 6 mb
offshore from the nevada deserts towards the coast. This is
occurring with mostly clear skies to start the day. Winds in the
hills are generally light this morning with lows from the mid 50s
to mid 60s on average, mildest where the winds are strongest.

Humidity values remain under 30 percent for many of the hill
locations so red flag warnings will continue for the north and
east bay hills through at least Wednesday.

Expect warm to locally hot weather today through Wednesday under
offshore wind regime. However, low dewpoints will keep heat
indices and impacts to a minimum along with longer early fall
nights allowing for night time cooling, even for buildings without
ac. To be clear the magnitude and overall set-up of this heat
event is not nearly as extreme as what was observed at the start
of sept.

For tonight, the models are showing another burst of gusty
northeast east winds, strongest over the napa and east bay hills.

Further drying of the airmass will persist right through Tuesday.

The combination of hot day time temps, dry offshore winds and
prolonged periods of low humidity values has prompted the red
flag warning to run through weds. No appreciable rain has fallen
and fuels remain critically dry so use extra precaution with any
ignitions sources including nigh-time warming fires.

By weds we'll lose some of the offshore adiabatic warming but no
strong onshore return is forecast so will likely squeeze another
warm to hot today, even near the coast. By Thursday the ridge will
finally weaken and allow for some cooling but temperatures to
remain on the warm side of normal through late week and likely
into the weekend as well with no rain in sight.

Aviation As of 4:30 am pdt Monday... Upper level ridge off the
california coast extends into the pacific northwest. Offshore
winds at 925 mb keeping the area clear of stratus. A shortwave
riding over the top of the ridge will bring in some cirrus clouds
from the north.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. West winds to 15 kt after 22z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR.

Fire weather As of 3:37 am pdt Monday... Red flag warnings in
effect through weds afternoon for the north and east bay hills.

Temps will warm up and rh values dry out again today. Expect
stronger offshore winds in the hills tonight with continued
lowering of humidity into Tuesday. Models show another burst of
gusty northeast winds in the north and east bay hills Tuesday
night into early weds. Winds will finally ease by weds afternoon
but by then the fuels will be very dry with low humidity and
likely the hottest day of the week with widespread readings into
the upper 80s and 90s. We are near the peak of bay area fire
season and this is a classic critical fire weather pattern.

Marine As of 08:35 am pdt Monday... Moderate northwesterly winds
will continue over the northern outer waters as high pressure sits
over the eastern pacific and a thermal trough resides over
california. Winds will begin to decrease on Tuesday as the trough
shifts towards the coast.

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.
