New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 237 AM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Somewhat cooler temperatures in the interior today, continuing into the beginning of the work week with a slight cooldown midweek. Very low chance of elevated convection and associated dry lightning in the southern Central Coast.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 115 PM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Stratus and/or fog has retreated to the coast as of early afternoon with coastal areas expected to warm into the upper 50's to 70's.
However, inland areas will remain quite warm this afternoon and reach 5-15 degrees above normal for this time of year, reaching into the mid 80's to upper 90's with a few of the warmest interior locations approaching 100 degrees. Only a few isolated spots across the interior will reach Moderate HeatRisk, thus we don't have a Heat Advisory in effect for today.

As for high-based convection, looking less likely to see development today as mid-upper level moisture is not sufficient enough. Looking like the potential (10-15%) is still there for Monday evening through Tuesday morning however, especially across the Central Coast. Tomorrow's high temperatures will be similar to this afternoon (maybe a few degrees cooler) with the pattern changing very little, other than increased moisture aloft from the south.

LONG TERM
(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 237 AM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

The mid-layer moisture continues to push through the region and will push across the Bay Area on Tuesday. In addition to the mid-to- upper level clouds that will typically accompany the moisture, the chance for elevated convection mainly across the Central Coast remains through Tuesday. Interior temperatures will cool off on Wednesday and Thursday, with highs in the 80s to the mid 90s, as an upper level trough comes into the West Coast and promotes improved onshore flow. CPC outlooks continue to suggest that temperatures above seasonal averages will continue into the first week of July.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 431 PM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Satellite shows clear skies over the region with a few low clouds south of SF Bay, near the coast. Low stratus will return tonight bring a mix of IFR and LIFR conditions over Monterey Bay terminals.
Some models hint that low ceilings will return for the remainder of the terminals, but had low confidence to include at this moment.
Although probability is low for MVFR/IFR conditions to develop tonight, SCT and FEW low clouds are still possible and are indicated in TAFs. Any terminals that experience status overnight, will see lifting to VFR between 16-18Z. Moderate to breezy onshore winds will diminish to light tonight before rebuilding to moderate to relatively breezy Monday morning.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR with a few low clouds lingering near the terminal. Due to persistence, confidence is moderate that VFR will prevail through the TAF period. Models hint at MVFR developing early Monday morning, but will monitor if any updates are needed to TAFs.
Onshore breezy winds diminish tonight before rebuilding to breezy Monday afternoon.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR currently, but IFR/LIFR conditions are expected to return tonight. Low to moderate confidence on exact timing but models show agreement near 05-07Z return of IFR conditions, then dropping to LIFR overnight. Expect clearing near 16- 17Z.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Friday)
Issued at 431 PM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Hazardous conditions for small crafts persist across the northern coastal waters through the early work week. Fresh to strong northwest winds continue over the northern coastal waters.
Fresh gusts remain possible over the southern outer waters.
Beginning this afternoon, near gale force gusts will develop over the northern outer coastal waters. Gusts will diminish across the northern outer coastal waters beginning Monday afternoon and gradually weakening to moderate to fresh strength by Tuesday morning. Significant wave heights over the northern waters will build to 10-11 feet through Monday before wave heights abate below 10 feet by Tuesday.

MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...None.
PZ...Small Craft Advisory until 9 PM PDT this evening for Pt Arena to Pt Reyes 0-10 nm-SF Bay N of Bay Bridge.
