New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1225 PM PDT Wed May 22 2024

Summer-like pattern to persist through Thursday. Temperatures are forecast to dip below seasonal averages this weekend as an upper level trough impacts the region. Temperatures begin to warm Sunday through the next week.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 1225 PM PDT Wed May 22 2024

With the weakening of the offshore flow and the broad upper level trough continuing to influence our area, temperatures are trending down towards a cooler side (by 2-3 degrees lower than yesterday)
going into the evening and night hours. Minimum temperatures are forecasted to reach between mid 40s to low 50s across the region.
Maximum temperatures for Thursday will see between high 70s to low 80s for inland areas, and high 50s to 60s along the coast. Although temperatures will start to decrease, temperatures will still be relatively warm. So for those sensitive to heat, be sure to hydrate if you plan to go out!

The marine layer continues to deepen with the coastal profilers showing up to 1,500-1,700 feet at Ft. Ord. With the deepening marine layer and a increase in onshore flow, Thursday will see some higher relative humidity values and increase of moist air inland. As a result, expect another round of "May Grey" Thursday morning for the coastal areas, especially near Monterey Bay, Salinas Valley, and coastal areas south of San Francisco.

LONG TERM
(Thursday night through next Tuesday)
Issued at 1225 PM PDT Wed May 22 2024

With the deep marine layer and upper level trough moving south into our area and becoming more prominent later in the week, expect a continuation of cool down to below normal temperatures by the weekend. Maximum temperatures for Friday into Saturday will see low 70s and range of 60s inland, with mid 50s to low 60s along the coast. Sunday into Tuesday, a weak ridging pattern takes a bit influence over our area, which will bring back some warmer temperatures with interior areas seeing max temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s, with the coast increasing up high 50s to mid 60s.
Overnight temperatures will be relatively the same through the forecast period, with mid 40s to low 50s across the area. High resolution ensemble models continue to hint at possible drizzle for the weekend along the coast, with a 10-15% chance that measurable amounts (<.01 of an inch) will occur. If precipitation do occur, impacts will be minimal to none.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 500 PM PDT Wed May 22 2024

VFR through the TAF Period for all but the Monterey Bay, which will see moments MVFR CIGs this evening and into the night, but with some breaks in between. Expect surface winds to stay breezy to gusty into the late night before reducing. Winds aloft stay strong over APC while surface winds ease, leading to LLWS concerns.
Gusty winds build again into Thursday afternoon.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Expect gusty winds to linger through the evening, but reduce into the night. Another round of gusty westerly winds arrive Wednesday afternoon with peak gusts around 28 kts. These winds reduce into the early night, but stay moderate for the rest of the TAF period.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO

Monterey Bay Terminals...Moments of MVFR this evening and into the night, with some breaks in between. Expect moderate westerly winds overnight with slight increases northwest winds expected into Thursday afternoon.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Tuesday)
Issued at 500 PM PDT Wed May 22 2024

Building surface high pressure over the Eastern Pacific Ocean will continue to allow for strong northwesterly winds to prevail through Thursday, with gale force gusts across the outer coastal waters.

Winds diminish heading into the weekend as surface high pressure over the Eastern Pacific Ocean weakens and retrogrades to the west.
