New AVIATION

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Quiet weather with pleasant seasonal temperatures continues today with a gradual but steady warm up beginning tomorrow that extends into the weekend.

UPDATE
Issued at 900 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Inland temperatures this morning are running about the same as yesterday with a +/- 1 to 2 degree difference. The marine layer is fairly deep today (Fort Ord Profiler shows a depth of 3000 ft) with stratus widespread across inland and coastal areas. Stratus is expected to clear by late morning for most inland areas but may persist slightly longer directly along the coastline. Seasonal to slightly below average temperatures continue today with the forecast warming trend on track to begin by mid to late week. Highs for inland regions and elevated terrain will largely be in the upper 70s to low 90s. Areas closer to the coast will see cooler temperatures with highs ranging from the low 60s to low 70s.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Not much change in the short term forecast, however slower progression overnight of marine stratus over coastal locations and nearby interior valleys does add uncertainty to todays forecasted high temperatures, a trend that will need to be watched by the day shift. Upper level shortwave ridging tomorrow will result in warmer temperatures (approx 3-5 degree increase) away from the marine layer influence under mostly sunny skies.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Monday)
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

The gradual but steady increase in temperatures for Thursday and beyond is the result of a shift and expansion west of the high pressure system responsible for the recent heat wave, back over our area for the end of this week into the weekend. Both ensemble and deterministic extended guidance indicate the warming trend as the dome of high pressure works back in our direction, with good consensus that widespread extreme heat is unlikely in our area.
However, the typically warm spots, like elevated inland areas will once again see triple digit heat by the end of the work week and beyond.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1037 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

A deeper than expected marine layer led to higher ceilings this morning, but the burn-off time was still well captured. As the stratus retreats to the coast late this morning, VFR conditions will prevail through the afternoon. Winds have returned to the standard W-NW direction for most sites, and will have moderate strength before decreasing overnight.

Vicinity of SFO...Despite some high resolution model guidance trending for later clearing, SFO and the approach both went scattered around 1730Z as expected. The remaining clouds will continue to clear over the next hour with blue skies and moderate westerly winds expected through the afternoon. Ceilings will return overnight. GFSLAMP shows a 50% chance of IFR ceilings, but with the deep marine layer, conditions are more likely to remain MVFR through the early morning.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...While SNS is having METAR issues, the 5 minute obs show VFR conditions as of 1745Z. These will persist through the afternoon with moderate onshore wind. MRY, on the other hand, is still dealing with MVFR ceilings for another couple hours. Similar to SFO, the TAFs are more favorable than most guidance regarding the flight conditions overnight. With a 2,000+ foot marine layer, it's unlikely IFR CIG or VIS will actually develop overnight, and the TAFs keeps MVFR ceilings and unrestricted visibility through Wednesday morning.

MARINE
(Today through Sunday)
Issued at 900 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Light southerly breezes will transition to gentle northwesterly breezes by this afternoon as the subtropical high becomes the dominant feature and begins to strengthen. The pressure gradient will begin tightening tomorrow, allowing for northwesterly wind to increase to a fresh NW breeze with strong gusts. Significant wave heights will build to rough by Wednesday

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...None.
PZ...Small Craft Advisory from 3 PM Wednesday to 3 AM PDT Thursday for Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 0-10 nm-Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 10-60 NM-Pt Pinos to Pt Piedras Blancas 0-10 nm.
