Synopsis A warm offshore flow will continue through at least
Wednesday with above average daytime temperatures, mild overnight
conditions and breezy winds in the hills. Conditions cool slightly
near the coast on Thursday before spreading inland Friday as onshore
flow returns.

Discussion As of 02:00 pm pdt Monday... Mostly sunny conditions
and mild temperatures persist over the region this afternoon as
high pressure over the eastern pacific builds toward the west
coast. This will continue to allow for a warming of the air mass
aloft where offshore flow continues. As the airmass warms through
midweek, surface temperatures will continue to trend warmer.

Surface winds will also have more of an offshore component to them
and push the warmer temperatures to the coast. By Tuesday and
Wednesday, afternoon temperatures will likely warm into the
mid upper 80s near the coast and low mid 90s inland. While these
temperatures are a good 10-20 degrees above seasonal averages, not
looking for widespread heat concerns. This is especially true as
the dry air mass will allow for temperatures to cool modestly
overnight and provide relief from the daytime heat.

Above average temperatures are likely to persist on Thursday yet
some cooling is possible at the coast with a return of weak onshore
flow. Further cooling is likely region-wide on Friday as the
mid upper level trough pushes inland to our north. Meanwhile, dry
weather and mostly clear sunny conditions will persist through late
week.

While above average temperatures have been forecast to continue into
the upcoming weekend, the latest forecast models are showing more of
a troughing pattern across the west coast from this weekend into
early next week. Until we see a bit more consistency in the model
solutions in the day 5-8 time frame, will not make any significant
changes to the extended forecast. With that said, if the latest
trends hold true, temperatures will have to be lowed back to below
seasonal averages. The 12z operational run of the ECMWF also brings
a slight chance of precipitation to the region Sunday night into
Monday. Again, will hold of on major changes until we gain better
confidence in the forecast models.

Aviation As of 10:30 am pdt Monday... For 18z tafs. Satellite
imagery this morning showing clear skies across the region
bringingVFR conditions to all sites. Aside from a few high
clouds, expecting relatively clear skies through the period.

Winds generally light with westerly winds 10-15 kt expected this
afternoon.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. West winds to 15 kt this afternoon.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR with mostly clear skies. Not
expecting any stratus through the period. Generally light winds
this morning with westerly winds this afternoon at around 10 kt.

Fire weather As of 2:57 pm pdt Monday... No real change from
previous forecast. Red flag warnings remain in effect through
weds afternoon for the north and east bay hills. Latest hi-res
models showing winds increasing overnight with decreasing rh.

Typically the window to watch for is late overnight and shortly
after sunrise. Winds will decrease Tuesday afternoon, but temps
will be hot and rh will be low. Hi-res 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 08:32 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.

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.
