New AVIATION and MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1141 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Inland temperatures will warm through Friday and remain above normal entering next week.

SHORT TERM
(This afternoon through Thursday)
Issued at 1141 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

One last afternoon of comfortable temperatures before a warming trend begins. A weak mid-level trough will continue to lose strength while moving through the Pacific Northwest. This will allow retrograding high pressure over the 4 corners region to regain its throne as the dominant weather feature across the West, triggering another stable omega block in the long wave pattern. The temperatures will gradually increase Thursday as a result of this changing pattern, with more warming on the way.

LONG TERM
(Thursday night through next Tuesday)
Issued at 1141 AM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Friday looks like the peak of this warm up, with several inland areas threatening 100 degrees. Despite broad agreement in the general pattern, there is still significant model discrepancy regarding how hot it will get at the surface. Most of this is attributed to how the marine layer will respond to the building pressure. We know it will compress, but it's not clear how much, as low-level onshore wind will fight pressure-driven compression.
Either way, the marine layer won't go away, and coastal areas will remain much more comfortable in the 70s and 80s. To illustrate the inland heat uncertainty, the ECMWF ensemble shows an 80% chance that temperatures at Santa Rosa will be somewhere between 100F and 110F. Meanwhile, the GEFS ensemble shows an 80% chance that temperatures will stay in the 90s. This spread has not decreased appreciably since yesterday, but we are now starting to get in the window for high resolution guidance. These regional models lie somewhere between the two global extremes, with a Friday high near 100 degrees at Santa Rosa.

We will get a slight reprieve on Saturday as the ridge amplitude decreases and temperatures drop about 5-10 degrees. Unfortunately there will be a gradual rebound early next week that may eventually exceed the Friday peak. Looking way ahead, there are some early signs that a cold front may move through late next week, bringing us much cooler weather for the following weekend.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 520 PM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Near term will be mainly VFR with gusty onshore. Marine layer will begin to re-establish along the coast this evening and then gradually move inland. Latest guidance continues to suggest a more compressed marine layer with cigs AOB 1k feet into the morning rush for Thursday. Did not vary to much from previous TAF package. Gusty onshore again tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Vicinity of SFO...A few clouds will hug the gap through this evening, but do expect some cigs to impact the terminal early tonight. Clearing of cigs by 18Z Thursday. Stronger gusts Thursday afternoon, but not airport weather warning at this point.

SFO Bridge Approach...similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...CIGS will skirt MRY through sunset before filling in early tonight. CIGS around Monterey Bay tonight through 18z Thursday.

MARINE
(Today through Monday)
Issued at 246 PM PDT Wed Jul 17 2024

Fresh northwesterly winds with strong gusts are expected to begin by late this afternoon. Winds will continue to strengthen through next week with near gale force gusts becoming more widespread over the coastal waters over the weekend. Significant wave heights will build to 10 to 13 ft by the late weekend with elevated wave heights persisting through the end of the forecast period.
