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 for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... High pressure over the eastern pacific will continue to strengthen through the rest of the week and into the weekend. In response, strong and gusty northwest winds are expected to affect the majority of the coastal waters zones through this period. Winds are expected to be strongest over the northern outer most coastal waters, strengthening to near gale force, with gale force gusts, by Friday evening through Saturday morning. As a result of the strong winds, steep and hazardous seas are likely for the majority of the coastal waters through at least the first half of the weekend.

Synopsis Summer is arriving right on time, as temperatures
will heat up across inland northern california for the end of the
week and the weekend, accompanied by widespread sunshine.

Northerly breezes and marine air will keep most coastal areas
seasonably cool.

Discussion High pressure aloft will begin to build across
northern california today while a departing trough tracks eastward
over the intermountain west. While we saw some thunderstorm
development around northeastern trinity county Wednesday afternoon
and evening, this high pressure ridge will suppress afternoon
cumulus development over the mountainous terrain, and but the
kibosh on any shower or thunderstorm chances. This will set the
stage for an extended dry spell, which may last right through next
week. The next storm system moving off the pacific will track to
our north on Friday, and then drop well to our east over the
rockies, while upper-level ridging really amplifies along the west
coast heading into this weekend. This will not only suppress
cloud cover away from the coast, but result in hot temperatures,
peaking over 100 degrees Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for the
hottest interior valleys of trinity and mendocino counties. Thus,
a moderate risk of adverse health effects will be possible for
those sensitive to heat this weekend. That being said, none of
this is out of the ordinary for late june, as a few 100-degree
days are fairly typical during the course of the month. In fact,
june 21st and 22nd of last year saw high temperatures at ukiah
reach 107 and 111 respectively, both of which were records.

Meanwhile, along the coast, low clouds and patchy fog will remain
the forecast challenge. Overcast conditions cover almost all of
our coast this morning, except around shelter cover. The building
high pressure aloft will tend to lower the top of the marine
layer, and limit the inland extent of the stratus, but expect
only limited afternoon breaks of sunshine between eureka and
crescent city. By Friday increasing northerly winds will tend to
scour out the low cloudiness, especially during the afternoon
hours. Friday night into Saturday low-level winds will have an
offshore component over del norte and mendocino counties, keeping
those areas largely clear even during the nights and mornings.

Still expect some areas of morning clouds along the humboldt
coast. The beaches will be windy on Friday and Saturday,
especially in those areas that remain clearer.

Winds will turn more onshore later Sunday into next week. This
will result in increasing cloudiness along the coast. An upper-
level trough tracking across the pacific northwest supporting this
push of marine air will not bring any precipitation to our region
outside of some coastal drizzle, but will act to lower
temperatures back into the 80s and low 90s across inland areas
heading into next week. Aad

Fire weather Building high pressure aloft late this week into
the weekend will bring dry, clear, and hot weather to northern
california. Fuels are not critical yet, though they have been
drying fast, and grasses are curing. The most critical period will
be Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning, as drying offshore
winds will bring afternoon humidity into the teens. Rh values will
only recover into the 30s and upper 20s across the mountainous
terrain of western mendocino national forest and the trinity alps.

However, north-northeasterly winds should stay in the 6-12 mph
range, which along with non-critical fuels, should limit the
potential for fire. Aad

Aviation Stratus continues to impact both acv and cec this
morning with MVFR to ifr ceilings. The profiler at acv indicates the
marine layer remains around 2000 feet along the coast however this
should begin to decay as we go through the day. Therefore some
clearing should be possible today along the coast late this morning
or early afternoon. MVFR to ifr ceilings will then return late this
evening at cec and acv. Uki will remainVFR through this forecast
period. Wci

Marine The calm marine conditions will be coming to an end today
across the waters as the pressure gradient continues to strengthen.

Latest ascat pass shows northerly winds in place across the waters
with winds near 15 kts across the southern zones. Seas have reached
their minimum this morning as well with most buoys reporting 3-4 ft
across the inner waters due to a westerly swell.

Winds will continue to strengthen reaching small craft advisory
level across the southern waters by this afternoon and across the
northern waters by Friday morning. I did debate issuing a gale watch
for the southern waters Friday afternoon however it would be a lower
end gale and in a relatively small area. Will go ahead and let the
day shift take a look at the latest guidance and they may need to
issue a gale warning later today. Wind waves will also ramp up
leading to very steep and hazardous waves by Friday morning. These
strong winds and steep seas will persist through at least the end of
next week. Wci
