New SYNOPSIS, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1146 AM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

Marine layer stratus is gradually retreating back to the coast with a beautiful afternoon in store. Cooler weather will continue through mid-week before a modest warm-up.

SHORT TERM
(This afternoon through Tuesday)
Issued at 1146 AM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

The trend for cooler temperatures continues as the upper level trough inches to the north. This will help promote some more onshore flow tonight causing the marine layer to deepen and push more inward. This will result in another rinse and repeat of early return of clouds near the coast tonight, with gloomy mornings along the coast and some parts inland. Temperatures tonight will be similar to last night with some areas seeing 1-2 degrees drop, but temperatures overall will see minimums in the 50s, with some isolated areas in the 60s. Similar trend for the maximum temperatures on Tuesday, with 1-2 degrees drop. Coastal areas will see max temperatures in the 60s, while inland will see mid to high 70s to high 80s. Higher terrains, especially near Monterey County and San Benito counties, may see temperatures in the mid to high 90s.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday night through next Sunday)
Issued at 1146 AM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

Quiet weather will continue through Wednesday with marine layer clouds in the morning and comfortable temperatures in the afternoon. Winds will gradually shift from SW to NW and strengthen to a moderate breeze along the coast. Overall nice cool weather to start the week before a modest warm-up.

Remember that 12 day heat wave we just went through? Remember how it was caused by a strong, slow-moving high pressure system that brought descending air and triple digit heat to inland areas.
Well believe it or not, that same high pressure dome is coming back for a curtain call. Currently centered over the 4 corners region, this system is still quite strong. The 12Z sounding from Albuquerque measured a 500 mb height of 5,960m, which ranks in the top 1% of the historical record. There is very good agreement in the guidance that this feature will gradually retrograde back to the west, although it's not yet clear how far. While the details are still being ironed out, expect another period of warm weather late this week and into the weekend. Fortunately, we are not expecting a repeat of the recent extreme temperatures, but minor to moderate HeatRisk is expected for the usual inland areas starting Thursday.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1037 AM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

Stratus continues to erode back to the coast. Therefore, VFR should prevail for most terminals shortly after 18Z. Monterey Bay terminals may linger a bit longer into the late morning/early afternoon.
Stratus will return early this evening bringing MVFR/IFR conditions along the coastal terminals and will continue to push inland over the remainder terminals. Clearing may start to occur again near 17Z Tuesday. Onshore winds will build near the afternoon to breezy and strong, then start to diminish into the evening hours.

Vicinity of SFO...MVFR continues to lift, and is expect to become VFR right before 18Z. Stratus will return tonight with a chance it will alternate between SCT and BKN, therefore TEMPO was placed between 04-06Z. Most models agree that low clouds will prevail near 06Z tonight. Onshore breezy/strong winds return in the afternoon, then diminish tonight.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...MVFR/IFR with stratus slowly lifting.
Expect VFR shortly after 18z. Low clouds will return this evening bringing MVFR/IFR conditions.

MARINE
(Today through Saturday)
Issued at 1037 AM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

A weak disturbance in the Eastern Pacific is supporting a light southerly breeze and low stratus clouds or fog today. As this disturbance dissipates tomorrow, the standard East Pacific subtropical high pressure pattern will return, bringing a moderate to fresh NW breeze for the remainder of the week. These winds will gradually build rough, short period seas by Thursday.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...None.
PZ...None.
