Synopsis
An approaching closed low from the west will bring precipitation
and possible some thunderstorms to the region and outer waters
Thursday evening into Friday.

Discussion
As for tonight, coastal stratus will persist with fog developing
along the coastline and over the outer waters. This marine layer
will penetrate inland again bringing fog to the inland valleys.

Models keep this low level stratus in the forecast through
Thursday afternoon and evening. A negatively tilted closed low
will approach the california coast during Thursday afternoon and
evening.For Thursday, above normal temperatures are expected to
continue with anomalously warm air across the pacific northwest
and northern portions of california.

The next talking point will be the potential for some
thunderstorms during Friday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms
are expected as the low moves right into california coast. We'll
see showers at first, but thunderstorms are expected Friday
afternoon as potential instability increases. None of these
thunderstorms are expected to be severe since potential
instability is really lacking Friday.

The low will continue it's eastward track Saturday into Sunday
with moist cool onshore flow continuing in it's wake. Some upper
level energy moving in behind this low will bring some more rain
to the region Sunday evening. Storm total rain for this system
should be around 0.20 inches possibly up to 0.40 inches over some
of the mountains and ridges.

Finally, a broad area of high pressure and weak offshore flow is
expected to build Monday through Wednesday next week. Therefore,
look for dry conditions and some warming after the weekend.

Aviation Marine stratus will remain entrenched along the coast
for the next 24 hours. Overall, expect ifr, though conditions likely
lower to lifr again tonight at kcec kacv, and then last through at
least 18z Friday. Inland,VFR prevails tonight into Friday morning.

Expect some lower stratus fog to develop over the inland river
valleys again overnight into Friday morning.

Models show MVFR ifr ceilings developing near kuki late this evening
and overnight, but conditions may be similar to what occurred last
night withVFR prevailing all night at the airport. For now, have
prevailedVFR, and will re-evaluate based on satellite trends at
later TAF issuances.

-spilde

Marine A weak low offshore will gradually slide east, moving
inland roughly around Saturday. Until then, expect light to moderate
south to southwest winds and relatively light swell dominated seas
of 7 feet or less.

Once the upper level trough moves inland Sunday, north winds will
return as the thermal trough reestablishes itself, then increase
through Monday. By Monday afternoon, winds are expected to
strengthen considerably, with sustained winds in excess of 30 kts
possible, especially south of CAPE mendocino. These stronger winds,
as well as the resulting very steep wind driven seas of over 10
feet, are likely to then continue into Tuesday.

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.
