847 am pdt Thu jul 18 2019

Synopsis A gradual cooling trend will continue through late week
with periods of night and morning low clouds. Temperatures will
begin to warm slightly this weekend and rebound back to near
seasonal averages by next week.

Discussion As of 08:44 am pdt Thursday... Stratus that spread
well inland during the overnight hours continues to rapidly
diminish across inland valleys at this hour. Look for mostly sunny
conditions to develop for just about all inland areas by late
morning or early afternoon while low clouds may linger at times
near the coast. As mentioned in the previous discussion, expecting
the cooling trend to continue across the interior portion of the
region today with little change for coastal areas. The ongoing
forecast remains on track with no updates needed at this time. For
additional details, please see the previous forecast discussion
below.

Prev discussion As of 2:43 am pdt Thursday... The marine layer has
ramped up to around 1800 feet, per the fort ord profiler.

Satellite imagery shows low clouds extending through the salinas
valley, however, high clouds are obscuring the view of low clouds
below over the greater san francisco bay area. Surface
observations at bay area airports are not indicating any ceilings
at this time, however, expect low cloud coverage to increase by
sunrise.

The broad upper level trough remains along the west coast. This
will maintain the cooling trend that has already begun. Highs
today are forecast to be several degrees cooler than those on
Wednesday across inland areas, with little change along the coast.

Night and morning clouds will continue over the next few days
with onshore flow with continued cooling through Saturday.

Slightly warmer temperatures are expected on Sunday with high
pressure aloft building in from the east. This ridge is forecast
to build over the four corners region and nudge westward early
in the week. However, a deepening trough off the west coast will
keep the ridge from building too far west. Warmer temperatures are
still indicated for the inland areas, but near-coastal sites
should remain near normal.

Aviation As of 4:50 am pdt Thursday... Weak southerly flow is
keeping stratus north of the sfo and oak airports. Lower CIGS in
the mry bay area with occasional vsbys down to 3-5 miles through
18z.

Boundary layer winds on the WRF model and on the NAM 925 mb and
850 mb wind fields indicate a weak cyclonic circulation will drift
southwestward to the coastal waters west of the north bay
setting up a more robust onshore flow for today. This could bring
gusts up to 20-25 kt around sfo this afternoon.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. West winds gusting to 25 knots after 21z.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Ifr CIGS with occasional vsbys down to
3-5 miles. Clearing after 18z. Southerly flow along the coast will
curve around mry bay to produce afternoon wind gusts to 20 kts in
the salinas valley. CIGS will enter sns early tonight then spread
into mry.

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.
