Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay - Greater farallones - .and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries - .
a tight pressure gradient over the waters will allow for strong northwesterly breezes and widespread gale force gusts to persist through the weekend. Significant wave heights will be 12-17 feet through the weekend before beginning an abating trend Monday. Hazardous conditions will linger into early next week as winds remain strong and seas remain elevated.

New UPDATE, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 254 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Dry and windy with elevated fire concerns into early next week.
Seasonal temps and quiet weather midweek. Potential warming trend for late next week.

UPDATE
Issued at 917 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Drier air continues to move into our area, bringing some clear skies this morning. Observations show moments of increased winds in the hills and mountains up to 40-60 mph out of the north. With the drier area and northerly winds, be sure to take precaution for any outdoor activities that may cause any "sparks". No changes to the forecast were made, as conditions remain on track.

SO

SHORT TERM
Issued at 254 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024 (Today and tonight)

What a difference 24 hours makes...June-Gloom is all but gone. The longwave pattern over the West remains relatively unchanged with an upper low anchored off the BC Coast and an upper level trough covering the PacNW into NorCal. Additionally, a weak upper level boundary pushed through the region on Friday. The passing boundary helped to set the stage for the much talked about burst of northerly winds. The SFO-ACV gradient ramped up to over -6mb and the SFO-SAC gradient topped out at over 4mb. This pressure gradient set up is perfect for gusty northerly winds and stronger onshore flow. A sampling of winds over the last 12 hours shows gusts 40-60 mph, with the strongest winds over the coastal waters, immediate coastline, higher peaks, and any inland gap/pass. The stronger N-S gradient helped to mix out the marine layer (June- Gloom)for the most part. Latest satellite fog product does show some patchy stratus trying to develop along the SF Peninsula coast, Pt Reyes, and East Bay Hills. That will be it, patchy at best through sunrise. Lastly, the better mixed low levels has also led to slightly warmer overnight temperatures.

Rest of today and tonight - breezy to gusty winds will persist thanks to the stronger N-S and W-E gradients. Still not strong enough or widespread enough for a Wind Advisory, but strong enough for minor impacts like blowing small unsecured items around. The biggest impact will be to the marine environment with steeper wind waves and hazardous conditions. Interestingly enough, a very pronounced coastal jet forms south of Pt Sur. In fact, latest forecast has winds approaching Storm Force conditions with a few gusts flirting with the 48 kt (55mph) mark. Moderate to high confidence on these stronger coastal waters winds as ensemble guidance indicate high exceedance values (80+ percent) greater than 50 mph. Additionally, the ECMWF EFI shows how unusually strong the winds are for this time of year and a good portion of the ensemble members are favoring the "extreme" side. One other impact for the persistent northerly winds over the waters will be effective Ekman transport and increased upwelling. In other word, colder water along the coast. The change in airmass associated with stronger northerly flow will lead to cool temperatures today, especially over the interior.

LONG TERM
Issued at 335 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024 (Sunday through Friday)

No big changes with the overall sensible weather for Sunday and Monday. Not much in the way of night/morning clouds and associated marine layer thanks to persistent breezy/gusty northerly flow.
Temperatures at night will be milder thanks to better mixing and seasonably cool during the day.

By Tuesday northerly flow will begin to slowly ease as the upper trough weakens. In fact, the longwave pattern aloft begin to become more zonal and then favors a more ridge like pattern for the second half of the week into the following weekend. So what does this pattern shift mean? A gradual warming trend with a potential for much warmer weather by next weekend. While tonight's guidance may have backed off from the more "extreme heat" around June 21/22 it is still plenty warm across the interior. Both CPC and WPC continue to highlight portions of the Bay Area and Central Coast for excessive heat from June 21-26
Stay tuned

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 505 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

VFR through the TAF period. Strong and gusty winds linger along the immediate coast and at SFO into the mid morning, with more inland areas seeing much lighter winds. Winds aloft are still strong and will stay so into the mid morning as well, particularly over the North Bay causing concerns for LLWS at STS. Winds aloft and at the surface weekend in the mid morning but increase again into the afternoon, with particularly strong winds over the ocean and at SFO.
Elevated winds last into the late night before reducing.

Vicinity of SFO...VFR through the TAF period. Winds Stay Gusty through the mid morning before reducing. Another rough of gusty winds starts building in the late morning and become stronger in the mid afternoon with peak gusts expected to be around 38 kts. These stronger gusts last into the night, reducing to gusts of roughly 20 kts after 06z. Winds reduce further into Sunday morning.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the TAF period. Light to moderate winds last into the afternoon before more breezy westerly winds arrive. Expect stronger and gustier winds over the immediate coast and ocean compared to the terminals. Winds at the terminals reduce into the night, but remain strong along the coast and ocean.

MARINE
(Today through Thursday)
Issued at 917 AM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

A tight pressure gradient over the waters will allow for strong northwesterly breezes and widespread gale force gusts to persist through the weekend. Significant wave heights will be 12-17 feet through the weekend before beginning an abating trend Monday.
Hazardous conditions will linger into early next week as winds remain strong and seas remain elevated.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 345 AM PDT Sat Jun 14 2024

Elevated Fire Weather Conditions Through The Weekend

*Increasing northerly winds, especially higher terrain *Lowering relative humidity values day and night

Forecast remains on track as northerly flow ramps up across the district. Gusts of 30-50 mph will be more common along the coast, higher terrain, and inland gaps/passes. Have already seen a few isolated inland passes reach close to 60 mph as well. These stronger winds will persist through early Monday. It should be noted that they will not be strong the entire time, more like bursts of stronger winds. The northerly flow has also ushered in much drier air across the region too. 24 hour trends show some locations 40-70% drier than 24 hours ago. While there are a few isolated stations that may "technically" reach Red Flag criteria conditions are not widespread enough to warrant a fire weather zone wide Red Flag warning. Therefore, still best to message elevated fire weather conditions through the weekend.

Regardless, individuals with outdoor activities planned this weekend should be fire weather aware. Be mindful and don't be "that spark".
