New SYNOPSIS, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM

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 1230 AM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

Temperatures are running about 5 degrees warmer than this time yesterday, but the forecast continues to improve for the remainder of the week. Highs today are expected to be in the 90s for most inland areas, although the North Bay Valleys will probably stay in the upper 80s, and the Northern Salinas Valley will be in the upper 70s. Low temperatures will be about 5-10 degrees cooler tonight, and the Heat Advisories are all set to expire at 11 PM.

The 00Z balloon found quite a bit of mid-level moisture and measured the precipitable water at 1.44". That's in the 99th percentile of historical records. This tropical moisture is generating some showers, but they are very weak and over the water. It seams the dry and stable lower levels are producing too much CIN for any of the mid-level energy to be realized. The radar trends have been decreasing and it's looking less likely that any convective storms will form over land in our area. There is still a chance through the day, but it's decreased from 10% to 5%. A paintball plot of the HRRR members shows that the 3 km NAM is the only CAM holding on to reflectivities over 30 dBZ. By tonight the threat will have passed.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 1230 AM PDT Wed Jul 24 2024

The cooling trend begins to pick up steam on Thursday as a subtropical disturbance moves from the E Pacific towards N California. As this system approaches the coast and eventually gets picked up by the jet stream, it will trigger wind shift from SW to NW, as well as decreasing 1000-500 mb thickness and 850 mb temps. The cooling continues to accelerate, and Friday will be a further 10 degrees cooler than Thursday. A weak cold front will move through, providing even more cooling by Saturday. When all is said and done, most areas will be about 10 degrees below normal this weekend. The decreasing 500 mb heights will also allow the marine layer to expand, bringing morning stratus much further inland. Looking ahead, more seasonal temperatures are expected through the middle of next week, but the uncertainty really balloons by Wednesday the 31st. The following weekend could either be warmer than the current heat (15% chance), colder than the upcoming weekend (10% chance), or somewhere in between (75% chance).

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1050 PM PDT Tue Jul 23 2024

VFR everywhere except MRY and SNS through the TAF period. The marine layer remains fairly well compressed which is helping to keep stratus confined closer to the coastline and confining direct impacts to MRY and SNS tonight. Low probability of stratus making it past the Golden Gate bridge but, even if some does, stratus is not expected to impact SFO/OAK. Light, variable winds continue overnight before moderate onshore winds return during the day tomorrow.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Light winds continue overnight with offshore winds briefly possible mid tomorrow morning.
Moderate onshore flow is expected to return tomorrow afternoon.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR becoming LIFR overnight. Satellite shows stratus lingering directly along the coastline with moderate confidence that stratus will reach MRY within the next few hours.
Stratus coverage may be slightly patchier at SNS overnight with LIFR CIGs temporarily developing. Potential for patchy fog development at MRY early tomorrow morning continues with low to moderate confidence that visibility will temporarily decrease to 1/2SM. Light, variable winds continue overnight before moderate onshore flow returns during the afternoon.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Monday)
Issued at 858 PM PDT Tue Jul 23 2024

Winds remain light to gentle in the coastal waters through Wednesday, with fresh to strong breezes in the northern outer waters creating continuing hazards to small craft, before slightly strengthening into the weekend. Significant wave heights will abate through the forecast period. A compressed marine layer will result in patches of dense fog along the coast tonight and Wednesday morning.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...Heat Advisory until 11 PM PDT this evening for CAZ510-512>518.

PZ...Small Craft Advisory until 9 AM PDT this morning for Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 10-60 NM.
