Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... An upper level trough approaching the pacific northwest and surface high pressure well offshore will produce strong and gusty northwest winds across the coastal waters through tonight. Gale force gusts are possible along the northern near shore waters and off of the big sur coast. These strong northwest winds will also generate steep fresh swell and hazardous seas conditions. Winds will diminish later in the week.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 131 PM PDT Mon Jul 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. Slightly cooler temperatures will continue into tomorrow as an upper trough moves through the region. This will likely result in the deepening of the marine layer for the immediate coastline. Temperatures are expected to be similar through midweek before warming late in the week and into next weekend as high pressure builds over the region.

DISCUSSION. as of 01:31 PM PDT Monday . Mostly clear skies this afternoon across the Bay Area and Central Coast as the marine layer deepens ahead of an approaching upper trough. As a result, temperatures this afternoon are about 5 or so degrees cooler than yesterday with most locations along the coast in the 60s and 70s to mid 70s/80s across the interior. Expect a few degrees of additional warming this afternoon with highs along the coast in the 60s to low 70s to 70s/80s inland. Isolated interior locations will reach the low 90s. Breezy onshore winds continue this afternoon, particularly along the coast and in the hills where gusts of around 30-40 mph are still being observed. Gusty winds will persist the rest of the afternoon and this evening before easing overnight.

Cooler weather will continue for tomorrow as the upper trough moves through. Temperatures are forecast to be fairly similar to today with some breezy afternoon and evening winds returning, though not to the extent of today. The combination of the upper trough and northwest flow over the waters will likely result in the deepening of the marine layer along the coast and locally inland overnight. More widespread coastal stratus is expected tomorrow night and into Wednesday morning.

The upper trough will have moved off to the east by mid-week. The combination of building high pressure over the Desert Southwest and an approaching upper trough into British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest will result in more zonal flow across California. Later in the week, high pressure looks to build further over the Desert Southwest exerting more influence over the region. This will result in a more compressed marine layer and warming temperatures, particularly inland. Current forecast has not changed much from last night with a wide temperature spread across the area late this week and into the weekend. Coastal areas will likely remain in the upper 60s to mid 70s while the warmest spots across the interior rise into the mid 90s to about 100 degrees F.

AVIATION. as of 10:50 AM PDT Sunday . A dry air mass above the inversion layer has mixed into the lower levels allowing the stratus to dissipate across the region giving way to VFR conditions. Onshore winds will once again increase through the afternoon and remain gusty into the early evening before diminishing slightly overnight. The development of MVFR/IFR ceilings will impact the Monterey Bay terminals late this evening before spreading inland early Tuesday morning as the marine layer deepens, yet not all Bay Area terminals will be impacted.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR. West winds will gradually increase through the afternoon with gusts in excess of 30 kt beyond 21Z. Winds diminish slightly late in the night with the potential for stratus development early Tuesday morning. However, confidence remains low with respect to the development of MVFR/IFR ceilings.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . VFR. Breezy onshore winds will persist through the afternoon before diminishing late this evening. MVFR/IFR ceilings likely to develop between 03-06Z Tuesday as the marine layer deepens and onshore flow persists.

MARINE. as of 08:50 AM PDT Monday . An upper level trough approaching the Pacific Northwest and surface high pressure well offshore will produce strong and gusty northwest winds across the coastal waters through tonight. Gale force gusts are possible along the northern near shore waters and off of the Big Sur coast. These strong northwest winds will also generate steep fresh swell and hazardous seas conditions. Winds will diminish later in the week.

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.
