Updated aviation discussion
Discussion Broad band of precipitation is over the area with
the back edge well offshore on the satellite images.

Precipitation rates will increase through the morning as the area
of rapidly cooling cloud tops indicating increased vertical motion
move inland. A colder air mass moves in behind the front,
bringing cooler than -25c 500 mb temps into the region that will
bring possible isolated thunderstorms into the coastal waters this
morning, spreading inland to the cascades this afternoon. Showers
and chances of thunderstorms drop of later in the evening as both
the cold air mass aloft moves east and the surface heat component
drops off post sunset. A weak upper level ridge builds in behind
the exiting front Saturday, bringing a break in the precipitation
and clearing Saturday afternoon. There will still be a cold air
mass over the region and temps will not be as warm as previous
days, but with the ever increasing Sun angles will still feel
warm. The next system moves onto the coast early Sunday morning,
moving slowly through the region, mostly because nature doesn't
think we have been soggy enough this winter and thinks we need
another drink from the fire hydrant. Sven

Aviation 24/12z TAF cycle... Gusty southwest winds are expected to
continue for a few more hours at north bend and along the coast,
mainly south of CAPE blanco before decreasing as the strong front
moves onshore. Gusty south winds will also be a concern inland over
portions of northern california and the east side. Low level wind
shear is possible at the terminals west of the cascades with
turbulence expected near and over terrain from the cascades eastward.

Ceilings will vary fromVFR to MVFR with MVFR predominant along the
coast and in the shasta region. Expect conditions to improve a bit
this afternoon with ceilings becoming mostlyVFR, though scattered
showers may occasionally lower ceilings to MVFR. -wright/petrucelli

Marine Updated 245 pm pdt Thursday 23 march 2017... Current buoy
observation and the latest ascat pass shows strong south winds over
most of the marine waters ahead of a front. Buoy 15 observations
show gale force winds which limes up well with the headline. Winds
will decrease early this morning as the front moves on shore, but it
could still remain windy over the inner waters until mid morning.

Winds will decrease today into Saturday, but seas will remain steep
for all of the waters due to a combination of moderate westerly
swell and fresh short period southwest swell, therefore have decided
to expand the coverage area of small craft to include all of the
marine zones through this afternoon. There could be a brief period
(around 6 hours) of calmer seas this evening, before increasing
again later tonight into Saturday due to increasing mix swell from
the west. Despite this, confidence was not high enough to expand the
small craft for seas beyond this afternoon. Later shifts will need to
reevaluate this. The next front will arrive early Sunday morning with
another round of very steep seas and possible gales. -petrucelli

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.
