New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1230 AM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

Slightly cooler weather today with more cooling through the end of the week. Heat Advisories are in effect for many inland areas outside of the North Bay until 11PM tonight.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 217 PM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

A Heat Advisory remains in effect for some of our inland locations until 11 PM. Mostly clear skies along our coastal areas has helped lift temperatures near the water in some spots into the upper 60s and 70s this afternoon, with Monterey having already reached 77.
Highs tomorrow will drop a few more degrees from todays values as the upper level ridge axis over our area continues to gradually weaken out ahead of an upper level low arriving with cooler temperatures on Friday.

Increasing southwest flow in the lower troposphere allowed for vertical mixing to penetrate the top of the the marine layer and hold off marine stratus early this morning. Expect to see more marine stratus development tonight through tomorrow morning, as mixing decreases and more direct westerly onshore flow sets in.

LONG TERM
(Thursday night through next Tuesday)
Issued at 217 PM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

We're beginning to see hints this afternoon of the pattern change ahead. The upper level low well offshore of SOCAL is taking shape, as the trough in the northern Pacific begins to deepen. The deepening trough to our north will carve out a path for the upper low to our south to track over the central California coast on Friday. Much cooler temperatures will accompany the system for the weekend and well into next week. The upper low is quickly absorbed by the Polar Jet as it moves inland but does help suppress the persistent ridging over the desert, as another round of troughing over the Pacific Northwest sets in for at least the first half of next week. Although temperatures will gradually increase each beginning Sunday, highs will generally be below normal for the remainder of July.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 408 PM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

VFR throughout the region continuing into the evening with breezy onshore winds. Overnight IFR stratus almost certain to develop at the immediate coast and near Monterey Bay, with lower confidence in stratus in the Sonoma County valleys and the SF Bay region. Stratus should clear Thursday morning with breezy onshore winds resuming in the afternoon.

Vicinity of SFO... VFR with breezy onshore winds through the evening. Winds diminish overnight with a low confidence of stratus in the early morning hours on Thursday. Confidence is low enough to remove the mention of IFR ceilings from the TAF. Breezy onshore winds resume Thursday afternoon and evening.

SFO Bridge Approach... Confidence in stratus is lower than at the terminal, otherwise similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals... VFR into the evening with LIFR-IFR stratus developing as the breezy onshore winds diminish. Stratus clears around 16-17Z on Thursday morning, as breezy winds resume.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Monday)
Issued at 408 PM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

Northwesterly breezes strengthen to moderate to fresh today as the ridge axis over the area weakens and the trough to the north strengthens, borderline strong gusts will be possible through the forecast period. Significant wave heights will continue to abate through the forecast period. There's a 5% chance for thunderstorms today.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...Heat Advisory until 11 PM PDT this evening for CAZ510-512>518.

PZ...Small Craft Advisory until 3 AM PDT Friday for Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 10-60 NM.
