Marine Weather and Tides
Point Reyes Station, CA

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

1039 pm pdt Sun jun 17 2018

Synopsis A low pressure trough over the west will provide
cool temperatures today, especially inland areas which are
expected to remain much cooler than normal. A warming trend is
forecast to begin on Monday and continue through much of the week
as high pressure builds over california.

Discussion As of 7:53 pm pdt Sunday... It's a fairly tranquil
evening for father's day most places having much less wind and
more in the way of clear skies. It's a bit hazy right on the coast,
inland visibilities are good. The onshore pressure gradient is
lower this evening at 1.8 mb from sfo to sac. Cool air advection
with an upper level trough has mostly mixed out the marine layer
temperature inversion, but redevelopment of the marine layer
inversion is expected to return late tonight through Monday as
lower level warming develops prior to the arrival of an eastern
pacific mid to upper level ridge on Tuesday. Warming of daytime
temperatures is forecast for this week, becoming above normal by
late week.

Aviation As of 10:39 pm pdt Sunday... For 06z tafs. Marine
inversion layer is slowly reforming with stratus starting to hug
the coastline. Initial obs show a 300 foot deck at half moon bay
and 700 feet at watsonville but expect those levels to rise
slightly by morning given the deeper inversion layer. Major
terminals all expected to develop CIGS after midnight and stay in
place at least through 18z Monday before mixing out.

Moderate confidence.

Vicinity of ksfo... Winds turning more westerly should allow more
typical stratus formation overnight into Monday morning. Inversion
layer should keep CIGS closer to 2000 feet but initial obs may
come in lower. Expect visuals between 17-18z Monday.

Sfo bridge approach... CIGS should form before 11z and last through
about 1730z for the approach.

Monterey bay terminals... CIGS forming overnight should mix out
around 18z Monday.

Marine As of 10:31 pm pdt Sunday... Mainly southerly winds will
continue across the near shore waters overnight. More typical nw
winds will return to the coastal waters early this week over
generally light seas.

Tngt None.

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.
