New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 351 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Today begins a warming trend into the weekend, with a short pause on Saturday. There is potential for more intense, impactful heat for at least the first half of next week, especially for inland locations away from the marine layer influence.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 351 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Shortwave ridging in the wake of an upper level low currently moving onshore across central Oregon will mark the beginning of a well advertised warm up from the seasonally pleasant temperatures we've seen the past few days. Highs today will increase, about five degrees from yesterday, for most locations beyond the reach of marine layer influence. Coastal locations won't be left behind entirely, with most spots close to the shoreline seeing a least a couple ticks warmer today too. Temperatures take another step up tomorrow as we begin to see the influence of the upper level ridge over the Four Corners region begin to retrograde and expand back to the west in our direction through the remainder of the forecast.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 351 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Confidence is high that a warming trend will continue through the extended forecast, with a brief but subtle pause on Saturday due to a compact upper level disturbance passing over the Central Coast providing cooler midlevel temperatures. By Sunday, the ridge of high pressure amplifies significantly allowing for persistent troughing to continue offshore to our north through at least Tuesday helping to mitigate the chances for more extreme heat. Deterministic guidance indicates decent consensus for the high to eventually expand far enough west to deflect the polar jet farther north by late Tuesday. Expect the warmest temperatures Wednesday and Thursday, when the high begins to position over Nevada and central California. Some of our elevated inland locations may see high temperatures similar to what was realized during the recent heat wave, but overall the magnitude of the heat and duration is not expected to match what we saw the first half of July. Both the ECMWF and GFS indicate a more active overall synoptic longwave pattern capable of breaking the ridge down across our region by the end of next week.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1103 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Satellite shows stratus coverage decreasing with CIGs expected to dissipate by 19Z at SFO and OAK. VFR conditions persist through the afternoon with MVFR to IFR conditions returning overnight. Moderate onshore flow returns during the afternoon with gusty conditions possible at SFO through the late evening. Stratus is expected to return tonight but there is some uncertainty on CIG height. Guidance suggests CIGs may be on the IFR-LIFR border during the early morning along the Central Coast and may be on the MVFR-IFR border throughout much of the Bay Area. The marine layer is expected to compress as high pressure returns which may help to compress CIG heights more than currently forecast.

Vicinity of SFO...Stratus coverage is continuing to dissipate around SFO with a tempo in place until 19Z as stratus continues to dissipate. Moderate onshore flow returns by late morning and continues into the evening with gusts up to 25 knots possible.
Stratus returns overnight with guidance suggesting 05-07Z as the most likely time window. CIG heights are expected to stay MVFR-IFR but some ensemble guidance suggests LIFR CIGs may be possible.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR becoming IFR overnight. Moderate west to northwest winds return during the afternoon and continue into the evening. Lighter, more variable winds will return overnight. Stratus is expected to return by 06Z. Confidence was highest for the 05-06Z time frame, however, guidance does suggest an earlier start between 03-05Z may be possible. There is some potential for LIFR CIGs to develop during the early morning hours but confidence remains low to moderate at this time.

MARINE
(Today through Monday)
Issued at 1103 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Winds will continue to strengthen heading into the late week with strong gusts becoming more widespread over the outer and inner coastal waters.
