New SYNOPSIS, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Quiet weather with pleasant seasonal temperatures continues today with a gradual but steady warm up beginning tomorrow that extends into the weekend.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

Not much change in the short term forecast, however slower progression overnight of marine stratus over coastal locations and nearby interior valleys does add uncertainty to todays forecasted high temperatures, a trend that will need to be watched by the day shift. Upper level shortwave ridging tomorrow will result in warmer temperatures (approx 3-5 degree increase) away from the marine layer influence under mostly sunny skies.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Monday)
Issued at 325 AM PDT Tue Jul 16 2024

The gradual but steady increase in temperatures for Thursday and beyond is the result of a shift and expansion west of the high pressure system responsible for the recent heat wave, back over our area for the end of this week into the weekend. Both ensemble and deterministic extended guidance indicate the warming trend as the dome of high pressure works back in our direction, with good consensus that widespread extreme heat is unlikely in our area.
However, the typically warm spots, like elevated inland areas will once again see triple digit heat by the end of the work week and beyond.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1105 PM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

Currently VFR at all terminals. Stratus remains exclusive to the Pacific Ocean, but it is beginning to creep towards the coastline.
Moderate-to-high confidence that all terminals will develop an MVFR ceiling overnight, the uncertainty lies in the exact timing with the overall trend being after 08Z. Winds will remain onshore through the TAF period.

Vicinity of SFO...Currently VFR with northwesterly flow. Winds will prevail out of the west through the TAF period. While exact timing remains uncertain due to the divergence of guidance/models, there is moderate confidence that an MVFR ceiling will impact the terminal overnight with a return to VFR slated for late-morning. The terminal is expected to experience another MVFR ceiling overnight tomorrow.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Currently VFR and calm at MRY and VFR with northerly flow at SNS. Winds will prevail out of the west/northwest through the TAF period. Low-end MVFR to high-end IFR ceilings are expected to impact the terminals overnight with VFR returning by tomorrow afternoon.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Sunday)
Issued at 858 PM PDT Mon Jul 15 2024

Low pressure to the north is helping to support light southerly winds tonight. Light southerly winds persist through Tuesday, though turn to become more northwesterly beginning early Wednesday. These winds will gradually build rough, short period seas by Thursday.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...None.
PZ...None.
