Synopsis Seasonably cool temperatures through midweek then
slight warming as a ridge builds Thursday and Friday. Slight
cooling back towards normal over the weekend as another weak
trough passes over the region. Dry weather the next 7 days with
night and morning coastal clouds followed by sunny afternoons.

Discussion As of 1:43 pm pdt Monday... Skies have turned mostly
sunny across the district with temperatures running in the upper
60s to 70s. The marine layer is poorly defined at around 2000 feet
with not too much warm air aloft. Northerly gradients from arcata
to sfo are nearly flat with 4mb from sfo to santa barbara.

Onshore gradients currently at 2.1 mb will ramp up this evening
with weak cool advection and a shortwave trough moving onshore
over oregon. This all sets the stage for a near or slightly below
normal temperature regime the next day or two. Some weak ridging
is forecast by Thursday which should allow inland temperatures to
nudge slightly warmer. However day to day changes will be subtle
but if anything should trend on the cool side of normal.

The 12z ECMWF brings another weak trough over northern california
Saturday that will keep onshore flow and seasonably cool temps in
place. Looking ahead to the 4th of july holiday the pattern looks
zonal Sunday through Monday then a trough may dig into the pacific
northwest but the end result for the bay area would likely mean
some dry north winds that could keep marine clouds to a minimum.

Were heading towards the peak of the summer doldrums here with no
precipitation in the forecast with the marine layer likely to set
up long term residence for july and august.

Aviation As of 11:27 am pdt Monday... It's been extra challenging
to forecast stratus CIGS in the last 12-18 hours; a classic example
as to the sensitivities of marine based clouds interacting with area
topography and other finer scale waves propagating through the
atmosphere. This complexity, of course, greatly reduces forecast
confidence.

Similarly complex weather even at this late morning hour there is
an ongoing stratus feed into the bay area while a sharp stratus no
stratus line extends south from san mateo county. Area-wide dewpoint
temperatures are a couple degrees lower than sea surface temps which
should generate more coastal stratus and add to the stratus feed
entering the bay area today and tonight, and while the set-up is
similarly true along the north central coast, other influences by
local terrain, etc. Are causing the leading edge of the stratus
field to dissipate.

18z tafs for the bay area are geared toward ongoing MVFR CIGS with
occasional mixing causing CIGS to mix out to few-sct this afternoon
during maximum diurnal warming. All the while the marine layer is
deep near 3,000 feet and undergoing a mix of cooling warming at 925
mb; btw, this is a different solution as compared to yesterday's nam
run when it was showing cooling of 1c-2c at 925 mb level today.

Tonight's 925 mb temp change is more consistent with previous runs
indicating 2c-4c cooling south bay and north central coast.

Vicinity of ksfo... Thought is that stratus will continue to reach
the terminal with tempo sct 20z-24z today. Early return possible
this evening if stratus along the coast remains intact, onshore
winds and deep marine layer otherwise favorable for more stratus.

West wind gusts up to 20-25 knots most likely during maximum
afternoon warming.

Sfo bridge approach... Coordinated with cwsu, better chances forVFR
in the approach today and similarly this evening. Low confidence
regarding tonight's stratus coverage.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR. MVFR CIGS probable this evening then
MVFR prevailing through 18z Tuesday with a deep marine layer.

Marine As of 01:28 pm pdt Monday... High pressure remains
located over the eastern pacific. Locally gusty winds are
forecast along the immediate coast and in san francisco bay
today. A dominant southerly swell will persist into Wednesday
morning.

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.
