Marine Weather and Tides
Temelec, 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.

444 am pdt Wed may 23 2018

Synopsis Cool weather and morning low clouds will continue
through most of the week with inland temperatures remaining below
normal for this time of year as a deep marine layer continues to
influence the region. An upper level low will move through the
area late Thursday into Friday bringing a chance of showers to
most of the area. Showers will end by Saturday morning before a
warming trend brings inland temperatures back to near seasonal
normals by Sunday.

Discussion As of 3:10 am pdt Wednesday... Deep marine layer
near 3000 feet and strong east-west onshore flow has allowed
stratus to spread well inland this morning. Many places around the
cwa are reporting measurable drizzle. An upper level low over
nevada will move slowly NE today with a weak transient ridge
moving over the state later today. This may compress the marine
layer a little bit but temperatures will still be cool with inland
temperatures remaining 5 to 10 degrees below normal. Another
breezy day is expected due to the persistently strong onshore
flow.

Cool temperatures continue the rest of the week as another upper
low is approaching from the west. Models in agreement in moving
this low through the bay area late Thursday and Friday. A frontal
system is forecast to dissipate as it nears the coast precip but
there will be a chance of showers in the sfo bay area Thursday
night through Friday afternoon with a slight chance of showers
south of there. Coastal low clouds should finally mix out on
Friday.

The low moves through Friday night and shower chances diminish.

A warming trend takes place this weekend as upper level ridge
builds off the california and oregon coast. Temperatures should
return to near normal conditions by Sunday or memorial day. There
may even be some offshore flow as a surface ridge builds into the
washington and oregon coast.

Aviation As of 4:44 am pdt Wednesday for 12z tafs... Fog
product satellite shows a very robust, deep marine layer in place
across the region. Fort ord profiler detects the layer to be about
or slightly above 3000 feet deep. Latest surface obs show cig
heights generally around 1000-1800 ft, locally lower at some
terminals. Confidence is relatively low on how this thick marine
layer will play out through the morning. The latest mtrwrf has
various clearing times through late morning or early afternoon,
with not much clearing or no clearing at all along the immediate
coast. Expect another early arrival of MVFR ifr CIGS this evening.

Onshore winds will continue today, though not expected to be as
breezy as past few days as the sfo-sac pressure gradient continues
to decrease.

Overall forecast confidence: low-moderate
vicinity of ksfo... CIGS are holding strong around 2000 feet above
the terminal. Anticipate clearing around 19z, but confidence is
relatively low, with MVFR CIGS returning as early as 02z. Winds
will increase this afternoon to around 15 kt with occasional
higher gusts possible.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR with intermittent ifr CIGS through
the morning. Temporary clearing possible by 19z, but very low
confidence, especially at kmry. West winds will increasing this
afternoon to around 10 to 15 kt.

Marine As of 2:30 am pdt Wednesday... Light northwest winds
will prevail through midweek for the coastal waters. Winds are
expected to increase through the golden gate gap, around angel
island, and in the west delta by mid morning into mid afternoon
today. Thus, a small craft advisory is in place for the northern
san francisco bay and west delta for persistent wind gusts over 20
knots. By Thursday morning, winds are forecast to turn southerly
as a weak low pressure system approaches from the west. This low
will bring a chance of showers Thursday and Friday. Long period
southwest swell will persist with a shorter period northwest swell
through the week, decreasing by Friday.

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.
