New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 153 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Red Flag Warning remains in effect for the North Bay Interior Mountains until 8 PM tonight. Dry and breezy conditions continue into Monday night. Better onshore flow and moisture return by midweek. Another warming trend on the way for the upcoming weekend.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 153 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Gusty northwest winds continue to mix down toward the surface this afternoon, as high as 30 mph in some of our higher locations over the interior coastal ranges and passes. The gusty winds combined with a dry air mass producing min RH values as low as 10 percent will persist for the remainder of this afternoon into the evening hours.
A Red Flag Warning remains in effect until 8pm for the North Bay Interior Mountains in Napa county. A positively tilted upper level trough will keep winds elevated wrt the normal diurnal trend overnight into Tuesday. Embedded weak shortwave ridging will help to ease surface winds Tuesday, especially inland away from the coast, however the Salinas Valley will reamin breezy as onshore northwest surface flow channels inland. Temperatures will remain near seasonal averages through midweek.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday night through next Sunday)
Issued at 145 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

A warm up continues to highlight the extended forecast. Persistent upper level troughing over our region begins to shift east and flatten late Thursday into early Friday, continuing into the weekend. A weak ridge begins to build with the ridge axis just to our east over the Sierra Mountains Friday afternoon. An increase in heights and thickness will allow another round of heat to build, especially the farther you move inland from coastal areas.
Elevated areas of southern Monterey and San Benito county may see triple digit heat, along with portions of Contra Costa and Alameda county to the north on Saturday, which should be the peak of this round of heat.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 437 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Mostly clear skies with a few high clouds shuffling over the area.
VFR is expected to prevail through the TAF period, with the exception of KMRY. Northerly/northwesterly winds are expected to linger through the TAF period, with gusty and strong winds diminishing overnight to moderate. Breezy onshore winds will return Tuesday afternoon.

Vicinity of SFO...High confidence that VFR will prevail through the TAF period. Westerly winds will continue to gust up to 26 knots until tonight where winds diminish to moderate. Winds will become breezy again Tuesday afternoon, with a chance for gusty winds up to 28 knots.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through the remainder of the evening.
Moderate chance for IFR/MVFR at KMRY, as some models show VFR through the TAF period. If ceilings develop expect near the early morning, then clearing near 16Z. Onshore winds will diminish overnight and slowly build Tuesday morning.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Saturday)
Issued at 437 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Widespread strong northerly/northwesterly breezes with near gale- force gusts will persist through Wednesday.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 245 AM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

...Red Flag Warning remains in effect interior North Bay Mts Monday...

Elevated Fire Weather Conditions Through Monday night

*Breezy to gusty northerly winds, especially higher terrain *Lowering relative humidity values day and night

Point Wildfire (near Lake Sonoma): Latest heat trends on GOES satellite and webcams show less heat, but that doesn't mean the fire is "out" or contained. For fire specific updates follow CalFire for the latest. Weather wise, winds near the fire remain NW with gusts in the 10-20 mph range. Despite the breezy conditions, RH values have crept upward to moderate, which is good. Transport flow continues to show smoke impacts SE of Lake Sonoma stretching into the East Bay. This is also being reflected at the surface with AQ sensors showing poor AQ. For more AQ info check BAAQMD.

Overall fire weather concerns: No change with ongoing Red Flag for interior North Bay for later today. The northerly shift in winds are still on track with gusts in the 25-40 mph. Winds will be strongest over the higher terrain of the North and East Bay.
While winds increase RH values will begin to plummet. Hi-res guidance continues to advertise RH values dropping into the upper single digits to lower teens this afternoon. The greatest impact will be over the North Bay Interior Mts - hence the Red Flag.
Elsewhere, conditions will be marginal for Red Flag, but still elevated nonetheless. Winds remain breezy offshore for Monday night into Tuesday keeping elevated fire weather concerns in play.
Better relief arrive Tuesday into Wednesday with increased onshore flow.

Longer range forecast will need some watching as hot and dry conditions return to the district.
