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
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 152 AM PDT Thu Jul 25 2024

So far, as of midnight, the night remains fairly warm with temperatures still in the 70s inland, the 60s closer to the coast, and the upper 50s to low 60s directly along the coastline. Overnight lows are expected to cool into the 50s for most areas except for interior portions of the South and East Bay where temperatures will only cool into the 60s. The marine layer remains compressed tonight with the Fort Ord profiler showing a maximum depth of about 1000 ft which will confine any stratus that develops closer to the coast.
Given how compressed the marine layer is, patchy fog may develop for areas along the Monterey Bay and northern most portions of the Salinas Valley during the early morning.

Today's high temperatures are expected to be 2-5 degrees cooler than yesterday as the upper level ridge continues to move eastward. As the ridge moves away, it will be replaced by an upper level trough moving inland into the Western United States which will contribute to a more significant temperature cool down beginning Friday. Temperatures will be seasonal to slightly above average today with inland highs in the 80s to mid 90s and coastal highs in the 60s to 70s. Heat Advisories have been allowed to expire everywhere except interior portions of Monterey and San Benito counties. Across interior Monterey and San Benito counties, widespread moderate heat risk and high temperatures in the upper 90s to low 100s are expected to continue through Thursday. The Heat Advisory will be allowed to expire at 11PM tonight with cooler

LONG TERM
(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 152 AM PDT Thu Jul 25 2024

Cooler temperatures will return Friday and persist into next week.
An upper level low pressure system located off of the coast of southern California is expected to move inland and merge with upper level troughing already located over the Pacific Northwest. This will allow for upper level troughing to deepen and is expected to persist through the weekend. As a result, temperatures will drop by as much as ten degrees on Friday compared to Thursday. While seasonal to below average temperatures will continue through Wednesday, we will see temperatures start to increase by 1-2 degrees each day beginning Monday. In general, temperatures will stay in the upper 70s to 80s inland, 60s to 70s closer to the coast, and upper 50s to mid 60s directly along the coastline. Favored hot spots in the North and East Bay may see low 90s return as early as next Wednesday. For interior Monterey and San Benito counties, temperatures will increase slightly faster with highs reaching back into the 90s to low 100s by early next week.

Looking beyond this forecast period, upper level ridging will again start to build over the Western US by late next week (end of July/beginning of August) with above average temperatures expected to return. This is expected to continue into the beginning of August with the CPC 8-14 day outlook showing temperatures leaning above average throughout the first week of August.

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 450 AM PDT Thu Jul 25 2024

Mostly VFR conditions expected outside of the immediate coast and Monterey Bay terminals. There is still a chance for IFR ceilings this morning at STS, SFO, and OAK, but the probability is decreasing. Otherwise, moderate onshore winds will kick in this afternoon before decreasing around sunset. Stratus will be more widespread as the marine layer begins to deepen early Friday.

Vicinity of SFO...While the TAFs stay VFR today, there is a 20% chance of IFR ceilings sometime between 13-17Z. The IR satellite shows a thick bank of low stratus over the Pacific, with a streamer coming through the Golden Gate. With relatively weak onshore wind and a shallow 800 ft marine layer, SFO and OAK will most likely be spared, but it obviously can't be ruled out with ceilings so close to the terminals. Otherwise moderate to fresh onshore winds will pickup in the afternoon before decreasing in the evening. There's a better chance for IFR CIGS early Friday morning.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...IFR ceilings were slow to develop this morning, but are now firmly entrenched and should last several hours before clearing around 17Z-18Z. Moderate upvalley winds will develop this afternoon at SNS. Ceilings should return closer to 06Z tonight, but after the recent forecast error, the timing is uncertain.

MARINE
(Today through Tuesday)
Issued at 450 AM PDT Thu Jul 25 2024

Northwesterly breezes remain at moderate to fresh with borderline strong gusts possible through the forecast period. Significant wave heights will continue to abate through the forecast period.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...Heat Advisory until 11 PM PDT this evening for CAZ516>518.

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