New UPDATE, 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.

UPDATE
Issued at 852 PM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024

Satellite imagery shows stratus clouds across the immediate coast south of Point Reyes, coming inland in the central and southern parts of the Monterey Bay. Model guidance and a marine layer around 1000 feet (as recorded at Fort Ord) suggests relatively little inland expansion of stratus tonight, at best filling in the Monterey Bay region and possibly some flow towards Berkeley and in the northern Salinas Valley. The main forecast problem continues to be the heat expected to continue tomorrow through Wednesday, and a very low confidence high impact chance for dry thunderstorms late Tuesday night through Wednesday. The night shift will continue to monitor the incoming model output and update the forecast as necessary.

DialH

SHORT TERM
Issued at 1258 PM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024 (This evening through Tuesday)

The temperature roller coaster continues. The region went from recording breaking heat, moderating temperatures, cooldown over the weekend, and now rebounding temperatures. The much talked about building high pressure is now over the region. As a result, the marine layer has been compressed and pushed back to the coast. Additionally, the airmass has warmed as noted by the 12Z Oakland sounding. Temperatures early this afternoon are currently running 5 to 15 degrees warmer than yesterday at this time and the peak heating of the day isn't over yet. The initial warm up today will push inland areas back into elevated HeatRisk. Additional warming is expected to continue into Tuesday as 850mb temperatures peak in the upper 20C range. Monitoring 850mb temperatures gives a good gage of potential heat at the surface with full mixing of the atmosphere. As noted on previous discussions, this will not be record breaking or close to the early July heatwave, but still impactful with interior HeatRisk of major to isolated extreme.
Therefore, the mix of Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings remain for interior locations. The heat related hazards went into effect this morning at 11 AM. The hottest locations will be the interior E Bay southward to interior Monterey/San Benito with highs in the 90s to low 100s. A few things to keep in mind with the heat:

* Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids.
* Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
* Reduce time spent outdoors or stay in the shade.
* Never leave people or pets unattended in vehicles.
* Use sunscreen if going to the coast or the pool.

While moderate to high confidence exists for the heat a lower confidence, but high impact part of the forecast continues with regards to thunderstorm potential. Models continues to advertise an influx of upper level moisture (175-225% of normal) early Tuesday through early Wednesday. There also continues to be a lot of MUCAPE shown, but just like earlier model runs CINH overlaps the MUCAPE. Further digging on soundings and x-sections reveals OK mid- level lapse rates, but a disconnect vertically from moisture to where lift is. Therefore, still no thunderstorms officially in the forecast. Will continue to keep an eye on this situation.

LONG TERM
Issued at 140 PM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024 (Tuesday night through next Sunday)

Forecast has trended slightly cooler for Wednesday by just a few degrees. As a result, some of the HeatRisk concerns for interior locations, specifically the North Bay, also trended lower. While a Heat Advisory continues into Wednesday it may need to be canceled for the North Bay if this trend continues. Elsewhere cools as well, but HeatRisk values still remain elevated with impactful heat.

Higher confidence exists for more widespread cooling on Thursday as the ridge over CA begins to shift eastward in response to an approaching upper level trough to the north. By Thursday the only HeatRisk concern areas will be interior E Bay and interior S Monterey/San Benito with moderate HeatRisk.

The heat will be a distant memory by Friday as an embedded upper low/shortwave sweeps through the region. Temperatures on Friday will return closer to seasonal averages with highs in the 60s/70s coast/bays and upper 70s to mid 90s interior. Further cooling is expected next week.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 441 PM PDT Mon Jul 22 2024
