Synopsis Temperatures will gradually moderate across interior
northwest california through early next week, and then cool during
the second half of the week. Meanwhile along the coast, low clouds
will be likely on a nightly basis with some clearing taking place
late in the afternoon. Otherwise, little if any precipitation is
expected across the region during the next seven days.

Discussion A weak upper level disturbance will continue to move
east and exit northwestern california today. This feature, mixed
with expected destabilization over the interior induced by
daytime heating, promotes a slight chance of thunderstorm
development over the yolla bollies and trinity horn later this
afternoon... However current model guidance indicates conditions to
be relatively marginal. Thus confidence is low regarding the
potential development of storms. Along the coast, stratus is
expected to hang around until the early afternoon, thereafter
current hi-res model guidance indicates cloud dispersal slowly
moving southward as the afternoon progresses.

Heading into early next week... Model guidance shows a midlevel ridge
accompanied by subsidence and warming aloft developing over northern
ca. That feature will favor high temperatures in the 90s to low 100s
across interior valleys during Monday and Tuesday. In addition, a
modest offshore component at 850 mb may shunt a marine airmass
westward from the coast, which would increase the probability for
highs in the 60s and 70s.

The previously mentioned ridge is expected to transition back to
northwesterly flow aloft by late in the week. That pattern will
continue to favor dry conditions, with the probability of
precipitation hovering around zero through the extended forecast
period. Jmg tdj

Aviation The marine layer is around 2,000 feet this morning
bringing stratus and MVFR conditions to the coastal areas this
morning. The marine layer is deep enough that ukiah will likely
get some stratus for a few hours around sunrise due to the
southerly winds. Skies will likely clear back to the coast this
afternoon. The coastal airports should see slightly clearing in
the afternoon as winds at the coast will be stronger than
yesterday afternoon. Tonight clouds will return quickly to kacv,
but may not return at kcec due to the offshore flow. Clouds are
possible at ukiah again Monday morning, but look less likely than
this morning. Mkk

Marine The coastal waters will be dominated by the northerly
winds and associated waves over the next week. Winds are expected
to increase this afternoon as high pressure aloft builds into the
area. The gale warnings for the outer waters look on track. It
looks like some of the large steep waves from the outer waters
will make their way into the inner waters so have added hazardous
seas warnings to the inner waters. These conditions are expected
to persist through at least early Tuesday morning.

Tuesday the ridge axis aloft becomes oriented east-west and drops
over the area. This allows the winds in the southern inner waters
to drop off significantly and they may become southerly. Farther
offshore and in the northern waters the northerlies persist,
although they do weaken slightly. Left the end time of the gale
warning early Tuesday morning as there may be a short period when
conditions drop below gale force, but confidence is low on this.

Mid to late in the week the gales are still likely in the
northern outer waters, but only look to be around 30 kt or so in
the southern outer waters. A hazardous seas warning may be
eventually needed due to the waves propagating south from the
gales in the north. The southern inner waters may see
significantly lower waves. Confidence is fairly high that the
pattern of strong northerlies will persist, but lower on the small
details. Mkk
