New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 204 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

A Heat Advisory remains in effect for elevated inland locations, and will expire later this evening. A welcomed cooling trend will begin tomorrow and extend through at least the middle of the upcoming work week.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 204 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

An upper level low currently centered 200mi offshore of south/central California will gradually lift north over the course of the weekend while making little gain eastward toward land with the persistent high over the Four Corners region driving the synoptic pattern across western CONUS. There is little to no thermal instability associated with weak shortwave energy and PVA shifting south to north across our area today and tomorrow. Probability of elevated convection is too low for mentioning in the forecast but can't rule it out entirely. If an isolated thunderstorm develops, dry lightning from any high based convection could spark a wild fire as grass fuels continue to dry. Surface based convection well inland and east of our area is expected, where continental modified boundary layer moisture is more robust with stronger diurnal surface heating at higher altitudes. A Heat Advisory remains in effect through this evening for much of our elevated interior locations, marking the end of an historic heat wave. A strengthening marine layer through the weekend into the beginning of next week will help the cooling trend as the offshore disturbance slowly migrates north.

LONG TERM
(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 204 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

By early Monday, the upper level low begins to get absorbed by persistent NorCal offshore troughing resulting from the amplification of the Four Corners ridge back to the northwest across Nevada, Oregon and Washington state. The steady fetch of cooler onshore flow will help keep temperatures around normal through at least the middle of next week. Warmer temperatures are expected late next week into the weekend as the ridge migrates westward next week, steering the jet stream and cooler temperatures aloft well to our north.

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 441 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

IFR and LIFR CIGS a have already filled over the Monterey Bay and the North Bay terminals. OAK looks to have moments of IFR CIGs into the mid morning. Expect light to moderate winds through the late morning. Patches of fog look to affect the Monterey Bay terminals through the mid morning. CIGs erode into mid Saturday morning for most areas, but CIGs around the Monterey Bay linger into the early afternoon. Moderate to breezy winds build Saturday afternoon. Winds ease into Saturday evening as CIGs return to the coast, portions of the SF Bay, and Monterey Bay terminals.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Winds stay moderate through Saturday night, turning from northwesterly to west- southwesterly in the afternoon before becoming light and variable Saturday night.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...LIFR CIGs and mist last into the mid morning for SNS but into the afternoon for MRY. Expect pockets of fog to form in the area through much of the morning. As CIGs dissipate, moderate westerly winds build into the area. These winds reduce into the night, as IFR CIGs move inland.

MARINE
(Today through Thursday)
Issued at 441 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

Winds across the waters reduce into the morning. Seas become calmer as winds begin to ease. Light winds last through the majority of next week. Significant wave heights between 10 to 12 ft continue over the outer coastal waters with peak wave heights between 10 to 13 ft expected over the far northern outer coastal waters.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 204 AM PDT Sat Jul 13 2024

A low probability of elevated convection producing dry thunderstorm lightning strikes continues, but there is no mention of thunderstorms in the official forecast attm. Steep midlevel lapse rates and improving midlevel moisture today and tomorrow will have difficulty organizing any thunderstorm activity over our area. Our fuels continue to dry while approaching record levels, so if isolated thunderstorms develop, they will have to be watched carefully.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...Heat Advisory until 9 PM PDT this evening for CAZ504-510-513>515- 517-518.

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