New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, AVIATION

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 154 PM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Warm, dry, and quiet this week as high pressure dominates. Onshore flow and increased cloudiness late week as a weak trough moves in.

SHORT TERM
(Wednesday and Wednesday Night)
Issued at 1125 PM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

High pressure at the surface and aloft will prevail across the northeast Pacific. This will be the primary short-term influencer on the weather regime across the Bay Area and Central Coast.
Temperatures early this morning are already fairly mild in the thermal belts with readings in the 60s. And with plenty of sunshine expect temperatures to climb rather quickly for most areas today.
Afternoon highs will generally reach the mid 70s to lower 80s for most areas. The exception will be along the coastal interface and within the marine-influenced valleys where a light onshore breeze will keep temperatures in the mid 60s to around 70. There are some vestiges of a very shallow marine layer along the coast so can't rule out some AM stratus or fog, but if it were to develop it should mix out rather quickly after sunrise.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through next Tuesday)
Issued at 1125 PM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

After peaking on Wednesday the upper ridge will gradually lose influence through late week in response to a weak perturbation translating through the mean westerly flow. This wave will be moisture-starved, so we're not looking for any meaningful precipitation, however we do expect more stratus, stronger onshore flow, and cooler temperatures for Friday into the weekend.
It's possible we could wring out a little orographically influenced coastal drizzle, but confidence isn't high enough to include this in the forecast just yet.

Temperatures will cool a few degrees on Thursday, with a more notable cooling (especially along the coast) by Friday.

The ridge rebuilds a bit over the weekend with a slight warming trend. However onshore winds will keep things cooler by the coast.
Dry conditions should prevail.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1125 PM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

While most areas stay VFR, but with pockets of fog will build in the North Bay and Monterey Bay into early Wednesday. Expect light winds through the late morning followed by moderate to breezy winds into the afternoon as widespread VFR returns.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Winds stay light into the afternoon before moderate westerly winds return. these winds linger into the night before becoming light and variable.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the early morning, then times of passing fog before the mid morning. Expect light winds into the late morning before moderate westerly winds build for Wednesday afternoon. These winds become light again into Wednesday night.
