Synopsis Seasonable conditions will remain in place through
Monday. High pressure will build over the region for the middle
part of the week bringing hot temperatures to interior areas and
in the mountains.

Discussion As of 8:59 pm pdt Saturday... It was another warm,
but seasonal july day across the bay area, with observed high
temperatures ranging from the upper 60s lower 70s along the coast
to mid-upper 90s inland. Today's hot spot was at bradley, in
southern monterey county, with the raws hitting 101f at that
location. Expect very similar temperatures across the bay area on
Sunday. Tonight's 00z oak sounding continues to show the presence
of monsoonal moisture in the air, recording a pw value of 1.61",

06" shy of tying the daily MAX record the presence of this
moisture will keep low temperatures about 5 degrees above seasonal
normal tonight.

Visible satellite imagery shows almost a carbon copy of what was
occurring this time yesterday, with stratus low clouds hugging the
entire immediate coastline between sonoma county and monterey
county. And similar to last night, expect this stratus to push
inland into the adjacent valleys through sunrise Sunday.

No major changes were made to the forecast since this afternoon's
package. A heat advisory remains in effect between noon pdt
Tuesday and 9 pm pdt Wednesday for the following areas: east bay
hills, southern salinas valley, los padres national forest, santa
lucia mountains, and interior monterey san benito counties.

The previous discussion remains valid and is included below.

Prev discussion As of 01:57 pm pdt Saturday... A few clouds continue
to stream over the bay area and monterey bay regions this
afternoon as seen on visible satellite, while day time high temps
continue to warm to seasonable norms. Sunday and Monday will
continue to reflect normal july conditions with low clouds and fog
along the coast overnight and near normal temps across the region
each day. Monsoonal moistures remains to our east, mainly
impacting the sierras.

The area of forecast for this afternoons forecast package is the
heat that will creep into the area Tuesday through Thursday. 500
mb high pressure over the 4 corners region will drift to the west
the next couple days, then set up shop near the ca az border. As
it makes the shift the high pressure will strengthen to near 599
dam, ridging into the bay area region and causing subsidence in
the air column. As this pattern sets up looking for a quick heat
up on Tuesday and remaining into Thursday. Since our area of
responsibility will be on the edge of the heat dome, the main
areas of focus will be for the SE portion of monterey county, most
of san benito county, and the eastern portion of santa clara
county. It will also cook for the far NE portion of napa county
Tuesday and Wednesday. Onshore flow is expected to remain in place
and keep the remainder of the bay area only a little above
seasonal averages. We will be watching how the winds are shaping
up over the coming days. If the winds calm on Tuesday Wednesday
afternoon, effectively eliminating the onshore push, temps could
ramp up in the bay area core. Models are not indicating this
currently, but bears watching. With this synoptic scale pattern
change coming and the ridge bringing in 850 mb temps around 25c,
we went ahead and took the preemptive step of issuing a heat
advisory with significant lead time. The heat advisory will start
around 11 am on Tuesday and run through Wednesday at 9 pm. Due to
the warm airmass aloft, the overnight lows in the hills and
mountains will be rather high, likely in the 70s and low 80s.

Valleys will dip into the 50s and 60s, so the heat recovery
overnight will be for lower elevations. This is why the heat
advisory covers mainly elevated terrain. If models hold true, the
heat advisory may need to be extended into Thursday, as it looks
much like the setup taking place on Tuesday.

Friday will bring a noticeable change as the dome of high
pressure is forecast to shift to the east again due to low
pressure moving into the pac nw. This pattern will help to shift
the heat out and bring the region back into seasonable norms.

Overall... Typical july conditions Sunday Monday followed by an
interior heat up Tuesday through Thursday with a week punctuated
by a return to seasonal norms.

Aviation As of 10:40 pm pdt Saturday... For 06z tafs.

Conditions tonight similar to last night except slightly earlier
development of low ceilings at koak. Ifr ceilings likely to
develop at ksts by around 07z. Ksjc and klvk expected to remain
vfr overnight. Most difficult forecast is once again for ksfo
where low ceilings may develop, but most likely not until 12z.

Otherwise, expect clearing on Sunday to occur by 17z in most areas
with earlier return of low clouds likely on Sunday evening. Light
to moderate onshore winds.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR for most of period. Ifr ceilings may
develop between 12-16z but confidence is rather low. West winds
between 15-20 knots late afternoon and evening hours, otherwise
light winds.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to sfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr ceilings continuing through 17z
Sunday with occasional MVFR visibility. Early return of ifr
conditions on Sunday evening, likely by 00z. Light winds.

Marine As of 8:54 pm pdt Saturday... Mostly light winds are
forecast to persist across the coastal waters through the
remainder of the weekend. Northwesterly winds are then forecast to
increase through much of the coming week. Two long period
southerly swells will impact the region this weekend and early
next week.
