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... Strong high pressure over the eastern pacific will maintain moderate to strong northerly winds across the coastal waters through late Saturday night. The strongest winds will be located over the northern outer waters. These sustained strong winds will produce relatively large and steep winds waves on top of a building northwesterly swell with moderate periods. Winds will decrease Sunday as a southerly surge moves up the coast, but remain breezy along the inner coastal waters.

Synopsis Temperatures will warm up across interior northern
california this weekend. Onshore breezes and marine air will keep
coastal areas cool. Dry weather with seasonable temperatures will
hold through next week.

Discussion Stratus has cleared out nicely today with only a
few patches still hovering over the hills around eureka. An
offshore flow will develop tonight and force a thermal trough out
over the coast. The northeast flow above mean sea level should
limit the regeneration of stratus especially for the mendocino
coast and the del norte county coast. Marine air pooling along
with a tighter marine inversion tonight will probably result in
low cloud regeneration around humboldt bay and in the eel delta.

With a stronger inversion, it may take longer for coastal stratus
to mix out on Saturday. Guidance continues to indicate
northwesterly breezes kicking-in during the afternoon which
should be sufficient to clear out the stratus.

The ridge axis aloft will flatten out and shift east on Sunday.

An onshore flow will start to develop as the thermal trough edges
slightly inland. This will probably bring an end to the warming
for coastal areas and adjacent river valleys. Coastal areas may
start to see more stratus and fog Sunday afternoon, though it
looks more likely Sunday night into Monday.

The main concern Saturday through Sunday will be the interior
heat, as an upper level ridge builds over the area. The strong
adiabatic compressional heating will propel daytime highs well
into the 90s with some sites reaching 100f or more on Saturday
and again on Sunday. High temperatures are expected to peak
around 105f in some of the valleys of interior mendocino county on
Saturday. A heat advisory has been hoisted for groups sensitive
to heat. Health related impacts from the heat may continue for
interior mendocino county on Sunday and spread northward into
portions of trinity county. Latest guidance continues to indicate
high temperatures falling a few degrees on Sunday for interior
mendocino county, while increasing a few degrees for trinity
county. The air aloft will be quite warm on Sunday and
temperatures may warm up quickly before westerly sea breezes
develop across the coastal river valleys.

A transient mid level trough will likely bring an end to the brief
warm up on Monday. The trough will exit Tuesday and Wednesday
and heights will increase. Temperatures will probably edge up
and remain above normal across the interior through next week.

Coastal areas will continue to see the usual dose of night and
morning low clouds.

Aviation The north coast experienced another morning of marine
stratus. CIGS dropped to lifr ifr while vis generally remained
vfr. Several early acv pireps measured bases about 400 feet and
tops 1600-1800 feet. Conditions were more compressed at cec with
tops averaging 1000 feet. CIGS basically scattered shortly before
noon, with pockets of stratus continuing to lurch near the eel
delta-humboldt bay and near the klamath delta. Uki and other
interior locations wereVFR and will continue so into Saturday.

Model data is somewhat of a "mixed bag" on coastal stratus
development overnight. Carried a brief period of stratus on the
18z (11 am) tafs, but sites will be further evaluated through the
remainder of the 24 hour period. Ta

Marine Strong high pressure offshore will maintain northerly
winds through the weekend and into much of next week. Gale force
wind gusts will be most prevalent across the outer waters and near
cape mendocino through Saturday night. The pressure gradient will
relax briefly on Sunday, allowing wind gusts to fall below gale
force, and then increase again early next week. These persistent
north winds will generate very steep and building seas through the
weekend. The existing gale warnings and small craft advisories
will remain in effect. Additional advisories will be likely on
Sunday with potential warnings again for early next week. Kml

Fire weather Issued at 501 am pdt Fri jun 22 2018. We are
still looking at a period of greater risk for wildfire heading
into Saturday. However, fuel moisture and ercs are running near
normal for late june, and have not reached critical levels, though
they have been drying fast, with seasonal grasses curing. For
Saturday afternoon, 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 by Sunday morning. However,
winds are not expected to be very strong, which along with non-
critical fuels, should limit the potential for fire spread.

Greater potential exists for large fires to our southeast, across
the sacramento valley and foothills, as well as the north bay
hills. Aad
