SYNOPSIS
Issued at 247 AM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Slight warming trend across the interior through Monday with diminishing marine influences near the coast. Potential drizzle/light rain chances mid-to-late next week.

UPDATE
Issued at 904 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Clear and quiet across the region this evening outside of some passing high clouds. Modest winds aloft have dissipated the earlier low stratus along the coast, and it should remain well offshore a bit. However expect low-level northwest flow to promote renewed stratus intrusion around the Monterey Bay later tonight into Sunday morning. The going forecast is in good shape with no update necessary.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 131 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

After a summerlike start to the day with low clouds the afternoon features wall to wall sunshine across the Bay Area and Central Coast. Ample sunshine, building 500mb heights, and a warming airmass all contributed to warmer temperatures this afternoon.
Latest 24 hour trend shows many locations running 2 to 5 degrees warmer than yesterday. The warmest interior locations have a 20-30% chc of actually breaking 85 degrees.

Tonight and Sunday: Expecting less cloud cover thanks weak offshore flow develop at 2500 feet. Not strong offshore flow by any means, but a dry flow patter leading to better low level mixing and less stratus. That begin said, hi-res ensemble guidance does indicate some patchy stratus piling up around the Monterey peninsula and locally inland. This seems most plausible.
Given less morning clouds, even higher 500mb heights (building high pressure), and warming airmass (warmer 850mb temps) Sunday will feature even warmer temperatures. Max temps on Sunday will range from low 60s to low 70s coast/bays and 70s to mid 80s interior. Heat Risk potential still remains in the minor category.

LONG TERM
(Sunday night through next Friday)
Issued at 150 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

To begin the workweek only subtle changes are expected with regards to sensible weather. Onshore flow at the sfc will keep cool temperatures at the coast, but interior locations will see another day of mild temperatures.

Tuesday and beyond: High pressure weakens and is slowly replaced by a weak upper level low off the coast on Tuesday. This feature will ultimately weaken and move inland as an open wave on Wednesday. This change in the longwave pattern will bring temperatures to below seasonal averages for Tuesday and Wednesday with max temps staying mainly in the 60s. There's also a 10-20% chc of some patchy drizzle Wednesday morning. Cool weather, but dry, remains for Thursday. Light rain and/or drizzle returns to the forecast Thursday night and Friday as a more defined upper level trough sweeps through the region. In addition, more clouds are expected with a colder airmass. Temperatures on Friday will struggle to reach 60 at the coast and the hills with interior locations staying in the 60s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1049 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

VFR through the TAF period for most terminals. Moderate onshore winds from earlier this evening have helped to mix out much of the stratus. As a result, not expecting stratus to impact terminals tonight with the exception of Monterey Bay briefly. Otherwise, light winds persist overnight and increase into the afternoon tomorrow to become breezy. Stratus does not appear to return until well beyond the TAF period.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR. A FEW low clouds may drift over the terminal in the early morning of Sunday, but not expecting CIGs to form. Winds are still elevated at this hour, and are expected to remain so through much of the night, easing only to about 10 knots. In the afternoon of Sunday, moderate winds return, but are not expected to gust above 20 knots or so. Winds then ease into the evening hours of Sunday.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Stratus may make a brief appearance over the KMRY terminal in the early to mid morning of Sunday, bringing MVFR conditions. Aside from this, expecting VFR from the late morning onwards. Onshore winds return in the afternoon around 10-12 knots.

MARINE
