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.

Synopsis A cooling trend will continue into Monday and
temperatures will settle around seasonal averages for much of the
week ahead. A warming trend is likely late in the work week and
into next weekend.

Discussion As of 9:05 pm pdt Sunday... A combination of
weakening high pressure aloft, a southerly surge, and return to
onshore flow allowed marine air to advance well inland today. The
result was considerable cooling today with some locations as much
as 30 degrees cooler today compared to Saturday. As of 8 pm this
evening, relative humidity values were as much as 50 percent
higher compared to last evening. Lowering temperatures and
increasing humidity has significantly lowered fire weather
concerns. Therefore, the red flag warning for the north and east
bay hills was allowed to expire at 8 pm.

Evening fort ord profiler shows the marine layer has deepened to
more than 2000 feet. This relatively deep marine layer combined
with increasing onshore flow will mean continued cooling going
into Monday, especially for the inland valleys and higher hills.

An upper trough moving through the pacific northwest tonight and
early Monday will move well off to the east by early Tuesday,
which will result in slight warming in most areas on Tuesday.

Southerly flow that is currently in place along our coast is
forecast to switch to a more typical west to northwest flow by
Tuesday which will also help boost temps in locations such as the
north bay valleys and santa cruz. However, the return of northwest
flow at the coast will mean cooler weather for areas with
northwest exposure to the ocean such as monterey.

After Tuesday's brief warm-up, expect cooling around midweek as
another trough settles in along the west coast. Longer range
models then indicate a warming and drying trend late in the week
and into next weekend as a strong upper ridge builds near the
west coast.

Aviation As of 10:07 pm pdt Sunday... Stratus on the coast
continues to move back inland tonight on onshore winds. MVFR ifr
ceilings will gradually spread inland overnight. The marine layer
has deepened tonight as an upper trough approaches. Similar mixing
out of stratus clouds can be expected on Monday.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR through late tonight, MVFR ifr CIGS develop
early Monday morning. Southerly winds slow to return to westerly, but
should return to westerly later tonight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Stratus clouds steadily filled back in this
evening. Onshore winds tonight and Monday.

Marine As of 8:40 pm pdt Sunday... Strong and gusty west to
southwest winds will continue north of the bay bridge,
occasionally gusting to gale force from san pablo bay to the
delta. Increasing northwest winds over the northern outer waters
and generally decreasing south winds over the inner waters will
continue tonight into Monday. Winds will gradually shift to a
northwest direction over the entire coastal waters by mid to late
this week.
