1032 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 10:32 am pdt Thursday... For 18z tafs. The
marine layer remains at around 2000 ft agl per the fort ord
profiler with satellite imagery showing stratus eroding inland.

Vfr conditions expected for the rest of the day and into this
evening. Guidance is now showing stratus redeveloping earlier this
evening compared to yesterday, so moved forward return times by a
couple of hours for the 18z package. Onshore winds this afternoon
10-15 kt with gusts 20-25 kt at the typically windy spots.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR. Westerly winds 10-15 kt with gusts to 25
kt this afternoon. Expecting sfo to see MVFR conditions overnight.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR this afternoon before low CIGS return
this evening. Expecting an earlier return for kmry than was seen
yesterday as well as another early return of stratus for ksns.

Onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt with locally gusty winds
down the salinas valley.

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.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
