Synopsis Above normal high temperatures are expected for the
interior this weekend. Occasional stratus and breezy afternoon
winds will keep temperatures near normal for coastal areas. Mainly
dry weather is expected to continue through most of next week.

Discussion Weak high pressure aloft will continue a slight
warming trend today with inland highs reaching the lower 80s and
another pleasant spring day to the region. The ridge of high
pressure will dominate on Monday and Tuesday as well promoting
a continuation of dry conditions with above normal high
temperatures across inland areas. The coast may see highs in the
60s on Monday with mainly clear skies due to a weak offshore flow
pattern. On Tuesday, the ridge axis will buckle and move east
increasing the potential for longer duration coastal stratus.

Wednesday through Friday, an upper level trough low will approach
130w south of 35n on Wednesday and then meander about offshore
during the latter portion of the week. The models were in general
agreement, but continued to diverge with minor precip generation.

The consensus is for cooling in the interior and an increase in
coastal stratus mid to late next week. There does appear to be a
slight chance for showers and isolated convection, especially for
the interior mountains with daytime heating. The potential for
showers may increase on Friday as the offshore low starts to eject
northeastward toward NW california. Given the uncertainty with
regard to this feature and that it is about a week out... Have
reduced pops a bit and removed any mention of tstorms as both
total totals and CAPE look very low at this time.

Aviation Some patches of low clouds are evident on early morning
satellite pictures, mainly over parts of the eel river valley and
near and inland from fort bragg. A few other patches of clouds are
fading in and out from patrick's point to CAPE mendocino. A large
area of low clouds with ceilings of around 1500 ft associated with a
weak frontal band is approaching from the nw. Model guidance
suggests much of this cloudiness will remain offshore or dissipate
before affecting the redwood coast. However, the band will at least
get close, so uncertainty is high. In addition, winds will be
increasing along the redwood coast today with gusts of over 20
knots. Sec

Marine N winds will increase across the area by this afternoon
with gales over the outer waters as a thermal trough strengthens
over the mainland. Have upgraded the existing gale watch to a
warning for the outer waters from 3 pm today thru Sunday night.

Steep seas will build to 9 to 11 ft by early Sunday. These seas,
combined with NW swells, will drive combined seas up to at least 10
to 12 ft. Sec

Eka watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Northwest california coastal waters... Small craft advisory from 11 am this morning to 9 pm pdt Sunday
for pzz450.

Small craft advisory until 3 pm pdt this afternoon for pzz470-

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.
