539 pm pdt Mon mar 27 2017

Synopsis Breezy conditions will continue tonight as a ridge of
high pressure builds into our region. Slightly cooler conditions
are expected on Thursday as a weather system moves into eastern
california and nevada. That weather system will bring only a
slight chance of showers to the northern and eastern portions of
our area, and also result in blustery conditions near the coast
and in the hills by late Thursday. High pressure will redevelop
late in the week and result in warmer weather once again by the
weekend.

Discussion As of 1:30 pm pdt Monday... Outside of some fair
weather cumulus that have popped up along terrain, mostly sunny
conditions across our cwa. Main story has been the winds as a
moderate surface gradient (acv to sfo now 2.4 mb and sfo to las is
over 15) has lead to breezy northwesterly winds. Current
observations indicate gusts of 15 to 25 mph in many location with
a few spots over 30 mph. Winds will continue through the evening
before dissipating overnight.

Synoptically a ridge of high pressure will build into our region
over the next couple of days. This will lead to dry weather along
with warmer temperatures. Highs will return to the mid 60s to
upper 70s on Wednesday with a few lower 80s possible in monterey
county
an inside slider will dive down across nevada on Thursday and to
the four corners region on Friday. Although the track will keep
almost all of the showers to our east, there remains a slight
chance a few could hit the north and east bay hills on Thursday.

The bigger impact will be to bring another round of cooler weather
plus breezy northwesterly winds. Both the NAM and ECMWF bring the
strongest winds to the coast and offshore locations while inland
areas have lower values. Right now wind advisories look unlikely
expect for potentially along the coast and coastal ranges.

Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees cooler for our entire region
compared to Wednesday.

The ridge will rebuild Friday into Saturday which will lead to
temperatures retuning back to near normal values. That should hold
through at least the first part of next week.

Finally, CPC 8 to 14 day forecast does show normal to above normal
rainfall for our region. We will have to keep a close an eye on
the longer range guidance. Winter may not be done yet!

Aviation As of 5:39 pm pdt Monday... Moderate to high confidence
vfr persists tonight and Tuesday under a drier pattern with high
pressure.

The acv-sfo pressure gradient is 4.9 mb and sfo-sac is 1.3 mb. W-nw
surface winds are getting a boost from mostly aligned gusty NW wind
flow aloft; an absence of lower level temperature inversions is
allowing for some vertical momentum transfer of gusty winds to the
surface. Gusty w-nw surface winds are likely to continue this evening.

Some de-coupling of surface winds is possible tonight while other
areas continue to have occasionally gusty w-nw winds. Lower level
warming is underway but not until Tuesday and Tuesday night are lower
level inversions likely to re-appear. In general it should be a
little less windy Tuesday especially Tuesday evening.

Vicinity of ksfo... W-nw winds with gusts to 25-30 knots this evening
and overnight, there may be possible lulls in the wind later this
evening. Near high confidenceVFR tonight into Tuesday.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... W-nw winds gusting to 25-30 knots til
about mid evening, lighter w-nw winds to near 10 knots tonight.

Moderate to high confidenceVFR tonight into Tuesday.

Marine As of 4:35 pm pdt Monday... Moderate and gusty northwest
winds will persist through midweek as a strong surface pressure
gradient builds over the region. In addition, a building northwest
swell will move through the coastal waters through late week. Moderate
to gusty northwest winds will then likely continue through late
week.

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.
