Synopsis An inland cooling trend will persist through late
week with periods of night and morning low clouds. Temperatures
will then warm slightly this weekend before rebounding back to
near seasonal normals by next week.

Discussion As of 01:49 pm pdt Thursday... The modestly deep
marine layer in place mixed out well over inland areas this
afternoon with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures in the
upper 60s to middle 80s. Meanwhile, stratus coverage persists
around the marin county coastline, over western portions of san
francisco and locally into the monterey bay region. Low clouds
will redevelop along the coast before spreading back into the
inland valleys overnight with temperatures cooling into the 50s
for most locations. Patchy fog and coastal drizzle will also be
possible late tonight into Friday morning.

The inland cooling trend will continue into Friday as a surface low
pressure system currently over northern california shifts offshore.

This will result in southerly surface winds which will potentially
maintain low clouds along south and southwest facing locations
through a good portion of the day on Friday. Little change is
forecast heading into Saturday with temperatures generally below
seasonal averages.

Building high pressure over the desert southwest will result in a
slight warming trend to begin on Sunday, especially for inland
areas. However, conditions near the coast will remain cooler as
onshore flow persists. The ridge to the east will begin to build
westward early next week and allow for temperatures to rebound back
to near seasonal averages. However, a deepening trough off of the
west coast will prevent the ridge from strengthening too much over
our region next week.

Aviation As of 4:40 pm pdt Thursday... For 00z tafs. Fractured
stratus deck from point arena southward through southern
california this evening. Breezy onshore winds this afternoon and
beginning to see some fingers of stratus push inland through the
monterey bay and golden gate gap. Expect to see some early
arrivals of the marine layer over terminals over the new few
hours, starting with ksns by 01z. Forecast confidence on lower end
given significant difference between model output and potential
for some pockets of drier air overnight.

Vicinity of ksfo... Sw-w winds 10-15 kt with gusts to 20 kt this
evening, then weakening overnight. Marine layer attempting to push
through the san bruno gap which will warrant close watch.

Otherwise, expecting sct bkn clouds overnight, with bkn posbl
after 06z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Onshore winds up to around 12kt the rest
of the day. Finger of stratus bending towards ksns at this moment
and should soon overtake the airport between 00-01z, then
overtake kmry later this evening. Lifr-ifr CIGS overnight.

Marine As of 08:44 am pdt Thursday... Generally light to
moderate northwest winds will persist through Monday with locally
gusty winds over the northern outer waters. Lighter southerly flow
can be expected along the coast today and into the start of the
weekend. The sea state will continue to be dominated by short
period wind generated waves along with a light long period
southerly swell.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
