Synopsis High pressure over the west coast will result in a
gradual warming trend through Saturday, along with mainly clear sky
conditions and cool overnights. The dry pattern is forecast to
persist through the remainder of the month.

Discussion As of 3:15 am pst Thursday... The large scale
weather feature dominating the region has not changed much over
the last 24 hours - upper level high pressure remains off the west
coast and a deep trough digs east of the rockies. However, subtle
changes at the surface has changed sensible weather overnight.

The latest 24 hour trends indicates a slight uptick in dew points,
which is leading to slightly warmer temperatures this morning.

Temperatures are still on the chilly side though - upper 30s and
40s. Additionally, the increased low level moisture and light
winds resulted in patchy fog. Therefore, patchy fog has been added
to the forecast this morning. Lastly, there still could be some
patchy frost in the interior protected valleys.

The general forecast thinking through the upcoming weekend hasn't
changed much. The upper level ridge will continue to strengthen
and eventually move inland this weekend. A weak shortwave trough
will ride on the northern periphery later today and Friday
resulting in offshore flow at the surface. Building high pressure
and offshore flow will continue the gradual warming trend. Highs
will peak Friday and Saturday in the 60s to lower 70s, which is
five to ten degrees above normal for this time of year. Overnight
lows will remain cool and in the 30s and 40s. It should be noted
though, the passing shortwave trough will also result in breezy
conditions over the higher terrain of the north and east bay.

Conditions will begin to moderate late in the weekend and into
early next week as the ridge weakens and shifts westward. Simply
put, dry conditions through the end of the month. Operational runs
of the GFS and canadian models still shows a pattern shift early
february with some precip moving into the bay area. The ecmwf
also shows a pattern change, but less in the way of precip.

Ensemble guidance however is a little more optimistic with precip
chances the first week of february. Stay tuned!
one final addition - if you're a weather nut watch the weather
over the mid west the next week or two. Two solid pushes of arctic
air will cause temperatures and wind chills to plummet. The
overall anomalies with these airmasses are off the chart and will
be the coldest season.

Aviation As of 10:00 pm pst Wednesday... Hi-res models show mid
and high clouds over the area tonight but no inversion layer. As
a resultVFR conditions will prevail.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to sfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR.

Marine As of 09:56 pm pst Wednesday... A 1033 mb high is
centered 460 miles west of point arena. This is causing stronger
northerly winds over the northern waters. Winds will decrease by
Friday as another high moves into the great basin. A small
northwest swells with longer period will impact the waters through
the week.

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.
