Synopsis As a ridge of high pressure builds into our region
temperatures will warmer into the weekend. Temperatures will
moderate next week as the ridge progresses to the east.

Discussion As of 01:42 pm pdt Friday... This morning's stratus
was quick to mix out and transition to mostly clear skies across
the region this afternoon. Compared to 24 hours ago, temperatures
at most bay area airports are running between 2 and 4 degrees
warmer. These trends can be translated to this afternoon's highs
as we begin a warming trend into the weekend. Friday's highs along
the coast will range from the 50s to 60s and highs inland will be
anywhere from the mid 70s to 90s.

A building upper level ridge is largely responsible for the
warming temperatures. 500 mb heights currently sit around 589 to
590 dam and will trend upward to 593 to 594 dam over the weekend.

Additionally, 850 mb temps will nudge from about 20 deg c to 23
deg c from today to Saturday, per the 12z ecmwf. At the surface
this will translate to widespread 80s and 90s for inland
communities on both Saturday and Sunday. Right now, there are no
indications that this weekend's temperatures will approach prior
heat event levels. As mentioned in previous discussions, the
warmest ECMWF ensemble members remain cooler than the observed
highs from july 7-8 when many bay area interior locations
surpassed the century mark. Since the expected heat risk values
remain in the low to moderate range, don't anticipate on launching
any heat- related headlines given the current forecast. Coastal
locations are forecast to remain cool with highs generally in the
60s to 70s.

Models are in fair agreement in advertising an upper level low to
approach the northern california coast early next week. As a
result, temperatures for interior areas will begin a cooling trend
on Monday and continue into the middle part of next week. By this
point, models are trying to suggest midlevel moisture advection
into parts of central california. Unfortunately, models have been
inconsistent from run-to-run and therefore confidence remains low
for shower and thunderstorm potential at this time. For now,
probability of precipitation is less than 10 percent. We'll
continue to monitor moisture trends in the models and adjust the
forecast accordingly.

Aviation As of 10:39 am pdt Friday... For 18z TAF package.

Stratus has cleared from all terminal sites and is currently over
only portions of the monterey bay per satellite imagery. Westerly
sea breeze winds will increase this afternoon with gusts over 25
kt expected at ksfo by 20-21z.VFR conditions expected all day
into the evening hours. MVFR ifr CIGS are expected to form late
tonight early Saturday morning at most TAF sites.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Breezy afternoon sea breeze winds
expected. Looking for MVFR CIGS after midnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR today. MVFR ifr CIGS reform by
10-12z.

Marine As of 01:30 pm pdt Friday... Gusty northwesterly winds
will continue into Saturday before decreasing somewhat during the
remainder of the weekend as high pressure off the california
coast begins to weaken.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
