New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 227 AM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024

Heat ramps up today as the ridge builds over the Great Basin. Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Warning goes into effect today for areas away from the coast. Cooling trend begins Thursday with below normal temps by the weekend.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 227 AM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024

Heat highlights go into effect today as the heat begins to ramp up. This will be in the form of an Excessive Heat Warning for the far interior and a Heat Advisory for the North Bay, Santa Cruz Mtns, and the southern Salinas Valley. We've started to see some signs of marine layer compression this morning per the Fort Ord vertical profiler and slightly lower ceilings compared to last night. A sign of things to come over the next few days as the high pressure builds aloft. However, in contrast to what was mentioned a couple of nights ago about the deepening of the marine layer cooling off higher elevations effectively, the opposite has happened overnight. Lower elevations still in the marine layer are running right around where they were 24 hours ago, but with its compression, higher elevations above about 1000 feet are running 10-15 degrees warmer. This is as expected and doesn't really mean anything notable with the upcoming heat. Just a fun observation and a handy way to diagnose subtle changes in the marine layer.

LONG TERM
Issued at 105 PM PDT Sun Jul 21 2024 (Monday night through next Saturday)

FROM PREVIOUS...

Further strengthening of the ridge will continue through Wednesday. The airmass associated with the ridge will yield 850mb temperatures in the upper 20C range. While these values are well above the 90th percentile and near the daily moving max (per KOAK sounding climo) they are not the same as what we saw earlier in July. Not expecting records to break for max temperatures.
Regardless dangerous heat is still expected and heat related hazards will remain through at least Wednesday. Tuesday will likely be the hottest day with far inland locations in the 100-108F range with major to extreme HeatRisk. These areas have the greatest likelihood for heat related illnesses. Not just for the young/elderly, but everyone who doesn't take precautions.
Stay hydrated, limit afternoon outdoor activities, and never leave pets/children in a vehicle. As previously mentioned, the marine layer will keep the coast cooler, but given the airmass potential above normal temperatures are expected. The ridge begins to shift eastward late Wednesday into Thursday as an upper level low moves northward on the western periphery of the ridge. The shifting ridge and approaching upper low will initiate a cooling. Thursday will feature some cooling inland, but more widespread cooling is expected Friday and into next weekend.

The other item of note will be the influx of upper level moisture Tuesday into Wednesday as the ridge to the east and upper low to the west allow for southerly flow aloft. PWATs will increase over the region as earlier as Tuesday, but peak Tuesday night into Wednesday at 200% of normal for late July. While there is ample moisture aloft instability is somewhat lacking. Guidance shows decent MUCAPE and marginal lapse rates, but CINH/inhibition is also pronounced. Would like to see less CINH before introducing tstorms over the forecast area. For now, will keep mentioning a non-zero chance, but more likely for increasing mid-high level clouds. We'll be watching this closely as it could have big fire weather impacts.
