national weather service san francisco bay area
505 pm pdt Tue jun 27 2017

Synopsis Seasonably cool temperatures can be expected today
with a very gradual warming trend through Friday as a ridge
builds into our region. Outside of drizzle, dry weather the next
7 days with night and morning coastal clouds followed by sunny
afternoons is forecast.

Discussion As of 1:03 pm pdt Tuesday... Visible satellite shows
the morning stratus continuing to clear out across most inland
areas. A few locations remain impacted with low clouds as of 1 pm
pdt, including san francisco and oakland airports. The san
francisco to sacramento surface pressure gradient has increased
slightly from what it was at 24 hours ago (2.6 mb vs. 2.1 mb), and
the marine layer is a bit deeper between 2,000 and 2,500 ft.

Expect skies to continue to improve through the middle of the
afternoon.

Synoptically we still have an upper level high centered over baja
california that is enabling hot and dry conditions to persist
over the southern third of the golden state. Closer to our area,
temperatures are much cooler than they were several days ago with
zonal flow overhead and onshore flow. Expect temperatures to reach
the upper 50s to the low 70s along the coast, and 70s to middle
80s across the inland valleys and mountains. The santa lucia
range, southern salinas valley, and pinnacles national park areas
will likely see temperatures MAX out in the upper 80s to the low
90s this afternoon.

On Wednesday temperatures will nudge upward a few degrees for most
inland areas as high pressure begins to rebuild over the west
coast. This gradual warming trend will continue through Friday
with temperatures within a few degrees of normal for the end of
june. Coastal areas may see subtle warming through the end of the
week, but by only several degrees at most. Models are advertising
a short wave trough to push onshore for the weekend that would
bring some cooling to the area. Aside the isolated coastal drizzle
associated with morning marine stratus, dry conditions are
expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

Aviation As of 4:43 pm pdt Tuesday... For 00z tafs. Widespread
low clouds prevail across the coastal waters at this hour. Low
cloud will push inland this evening and overnight bringing CIGS to
area terminals. CIGS anticipated to lift around 16z-17z Wednesday
morning. Moderate onshore flow will persist through this evening
then diminish overnight.

Moderate confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR currently over terminals. MVFR CIGS may
drift over the terminals over the next several hours before ifr
cigs fill in. Have included tempo groups to account for this. Cigs
anticipated to clear around 17z Wednesday morning. Moderate
onshore flow around 15-20 kt with gust to around 25 kt will
persist through this evening then diminish overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... CurrentlyVFR over terminals. MVFR cigs
may move in and out over the terminals over the next few hours
before CIGS fill in. Have included tempo groups to account for
this. CIGS are anticipated to lower to ifr after 06z then lifr
after 08z. Anticipated skies to clear around 17z Wednesday
morning. Moderate onshore flow around 15 kt with gust to around
20 kt will persist through this evening then diminish overnight.

Ifr CIGS quickly clearing around mry.

Should be clr at all monterey bay terminals by 18-1830z. Breezy
and occasionally gusty west winds 12-14kt this afternoon. Early
return of stratus for mry, around 03z, and sns around 06z.

Marine As of 1:52 pm pdt Tuesday... High pressure will continue
to build into the eastern pacific through the rest of the week.

As such, moderate to strong northerly winds will continue to
increase over the waters and bays through the majority of the
forecast period. Southerly swell and wind driven waves will
dominate and persist through Wednesday morning.

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.
