New SYNOPSIS, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 123 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Breezy onshore winds and temperatures near seasonal averages continue through Thursday, with another warming trend for the weekend.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 123 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Winds are generally light this morning with the upper level trough that drove the intense daytime winds progressing eastward across the Intermountain West. Mid to high level clouds will flow over the region today. Breezy onshore winds will develop this afternoon, but they won't be as intense as what we've seen this last weekend. Low temperatures this morning will generally be in the low to mid 50s in the lower elevations, to the upper 50s and around 60 in the higher elevations. High temperatures today will range from the upper 50s to mid 60s along the coast, to the mid to upper 70s along the Bayshore, and the mid 80s to lower 90s in the inland valleys.

Smoke from the Point Fire in northwestern Sonoma County and the Sites Fire in Colusa County is expected to travel towards the south and southeast, impacting the Bay Area and Central Coast with haze and moments of smoke. Although the Red Flag Warning for the North Bay interior mountains was allowed to expire last night, elevated fire danger remains across the interior regions. The air remains very dry with daytime relative humidities in the 10-30 percent range across the inland areas and the coastal ranges, with breezy onshore winds gusting up to 20-30 miles per hour in the afternoon. Humidity recoveries overnight are expected to progressively improve through the week, but remain poor across the interior mountains and the Santa Lucias.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Monday)
Issued at 123 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2024

A weak upper level trough develops over the state, continuing to hover over the area for the next few days and promoting the redevelopment of the marine layer and its associated stratus clouds.
Temperatures dip on Wednesday with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s in the inland valleys to the mid 50s to lower 60s along the coast, before Thursday sees a few degrees of warming.

By Friday, the trough will erode as a ridge builds into the western United States. The warmest temperatures are expected on Saturday, where highs will range from the 90s to lower 100s for the inland regions, the mid 70s to low 80s for the Bayshore, and the low to mid 60s for the coast.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1034 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

VFR through the TAF period. Winds weaken into the late night becoming light. Winds stay light into the late morning before moderate to breezy winds arrive into Tuesday afternoon. Smoke from fires to the north could cause some haze and smoke to filter into the North Bay and around the SF Bay, but visibilities don't look to be greatly affected. Winds will reduce into Tuesday evening.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Winds reduce into the night becoming light to moderate. Another round of breezy to gusty winds starts building in the early afternoon with peak gusts expected to be around 28 kts. These stronger gusts last into the night. Gusts stop but moderate winds last into late Tuesday night.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the TAF period. Light to moderate winds last through the late morning before more moderate westerly winds arrive. Winds at the terminals reduce into Tuesday night.
