Synopsis Cooler weather in the interior will continue today.

Warmer weather is expected Monday through Wednesday.

Discussion Stratus developed overnight along the north coast
and in the adjacent river valleys. Stratus appeared to be minimal
south of the CAPE along the mendocino coast. Brisk northerly winds
later today will scour out the stratus and sunshine will abound.

Temperatures will not cool much today compared to yesterday in
the interior. Pleasant readings in the mid 70s to mid 80s are
expected. Coastal areas should drop a few degrees as gusty
northerly breezes ramp up this afternoon.

An upper ridge will build over the area on Monday and hold through
Wednesday. Temperatures across the interior will warm up again.

Highs in the lower to mid 90s are probable for the interior
valleys. A few interior valley sites will probably reach the
upper 90s to around 100f on Tuesday and Wednesday. Coastal areas
will see warmer temperatures as well early to mid next week.

Coastal highs in the lower to mid 70s are expected.

The models continue to bring an upper low toward the california
coast late in the week and next weekend. Cooler weather is likely
next weekend. The models are depicting light precip next weekend.

This may be overdone and for now will maintain near normal precip
chances around 5 to 10%.

Aviation Stratus is more prevalent this morning compared to
yesterday morning especially within the eel river valley. Both acv
and cec have experienced stratus this morning and will remain
MVFR ifr through late this morning before the stratus clears.

Northerly winds along the coast will increase later this morning and
persist through this evening. Around sunset this may lead to reduced
visibilities due to lofted salt particles at coastal terminals. This
evening as the boundary layer decouples, wind shear may be a concern
for a few hours. High resolution guidance indicate that stratus will
be hard to come by this evening so all terminals may remainVFR
tonight into tomorrow morning. Wci

Marine Northerlies will continue to increase today, with gale
force gusts over the outer waters by late this morning. Have added
the southern outer waters to the gale warning due to the large
steep seas and marginal gale force wind gusts that can be expected
across primarily the northwestern half of the zone. The strong
northerlies will decrease by Tuesday and remain fairly light
through the remainder of the forecast period with the strongest
winds over the NW corner of the forecast area.

Steep short period northerly wind waves will persist through mid
week. In addition, a NW swell currently at a period of around 8
seconds will continue into early next week. A very small, periodic
sw swell at around 16 seconds will continue as well. Wci & sec

Fire weather Cooler temperatures and higher rh's are expected
to continue today. A warming and drying trend will commence
tonight and Monday as offshore flow increases. Gusty northeast
and east winds with low rh's are expected tonight over the exposed
ridges of zones 203 and 204. For now will maintain a headline in
the fire weather planning forecast to call attention to possible
critical fire weather conditions tonight and Monday. The offshore
flow and poor rh recoveries will persist on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Otherwise, above normal temperatures and low rh's are expected
each day through much of next week before a cooling trend arrives
toward the end of the week into next weekend.

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.
