New AVIATION, MARINE

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
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 506 PM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

VFR prevails through the mid to late evening today for most terminals. Winds are currently breezy and onshore, but are expected to slowly ease into the nighttime as the gradient lessens. Current thoughts are that stratus is likely to come in later than previous nights, moreso towards 06Z and beyond for most terminals. A look at current satellite shows the stratus deck cleared far beyond the coast, so it will take time for stratus to slowly push back inland tonight, hence the later return time. This being said, CIGs when they develop are likely to be MVFR, lasting through the late morning of Tuesday. VFR conditions and breezy onshore winds will return in the afternoon Tuesday.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the late night tonight, though low clouds will begin to filter in just beyond sunset. MVFR CIGs are not expected to develop until closer to midnight, and then last through the late morning Tuesday. Winds will remain above 7 knots in the overnight tonight.

SFO Bridge Approach...Stratus will cover much of the tonight and through the morning Tuesday, with largely MVFR CIGs . Some CIGs dipping temporarily to IFR conditions are not out of the question.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the evening today. Some uncertainty exists as to when stratus will push inland tonight, as models do indicate at least some low clouds entering the terminal vicinity this evening, but don't seem to support as robust stratus coverage until closer to midnight. Current confidence on MVFR CIG development prior to midnight is moderate. Although CIGs will develop in the overnight tonight, the uncertainty lies within the timing of their development. Moderate confidence on CIGs lowering to IFR altitudes in the mid morning of Tuesday. Nonetheless, expect late clearing of CIGs tomorrow morning, generally 18/19Z.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Sunday)
Issued at 506 PM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

A weak disturbance in the Eastern Pacific is supporting a light southerly breeze and low stratus 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.
