1048 pm pdt Sun aug 25 2019

Synopsis High pressure will continue to produce very warm
conditions inland through Tuesday. A shallow marine layer will
persist along the coast, along with light onshore flow, resulting
in relatively mild temperatures near the ocean and bays. Moisture
from tropical storm ivo will likely pass across our area from
Tuesday through early Wednesday, bringing increasing clouds and
higher humidity. Cooler temperatures are forecast for the second
half of the week.

Discussion As of 9:00 pm pdt Sunday... As expected, a
compressed marine layer and strong high pressure aloft allowed
inland temperatures to warm today. Afternoon highs away from the
ocean were about 5 degrees warmer than on Saturday. Light onshore
flow and the shallow marine layer kept coastal areas relatively
cool, and some locations, such as san francisco and monterey, were
slightly cooler than yesterday.

The 00z oakland sounding and latest profiler data indicate the
marine layer remains shallow with a depth of about 1000 feet.

Little change is forecast through Monday as a relatively strong
upper ridge remains in place over california. Model guidance
indicate that inland temperatures could be a few degrees warmer
tomorrow, otherwise little change is expected.

Evening IR satellite imagery shows high clouds beginning to spread
into far southern california. These clouds are associated with
remnant moisture from former tropical storm ivo. Ivo's moisture is
forecast to continue to drift to the north and arrive over central
california by late Monday night and northern california by Tuesday
evening. Models continue to forecast the most concentrated
moisture and best mid level instability will remain offshore.

However, the 00z NAM indicates increasing instability in the mid
levels across the northern portion of our forecast area by
Tuesday evening, and especially across the north bay Tuesday
night. Even so, available moisture and instability in the mid
levels looks marginal for high-based shower thunderstorm
development. Plus, the NAM often over-forecasts mid level
instability in situations such as this. In any case, will need to
monitor the incoming moisture plume closely. If convection
develops to our south late tomorrow and tomorrow night, then
thunderstorms may need to be added to our forecast for Tuesday and
Tuesday night. The tropical moisture is expected to exit our area
to the north by midday Wednesday.

Models maintain very warm conditions inland into Tuesday,
although if mid and high clouds are present we may see modest
cooling. However, if any of the tropical moisture filters into the
lower levels, the higher humidity may make Tuesday feel even
warmer. Heat risks over the next few days are still projected to
remain mostly in the moderate category.

An inland cooling trend is forecast for Wednesday and Thursday as
the upper ridge weakens over california. Inland high temperatures
are expected to cool by 5 to 10 degrees by Thursday.

Aviation As of 10:48 pm pdt Sunday... It'sVFR except vlifr-ifr
due to fog and very low stratus ceilings along the coastline from
sonoma county to monterey county. Vlifr-ifr slowly spreads into
the nearby valleys as well as through the golden gate this evening
and overnight. Fog may be dense in spots at times tonight and
Monday morning.VFR returning back to the coastline late Monday
morning and afternoon.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR likely due to a compressed marine layer.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Vlifr-ifr along the monterey bay and
into the salinas valley tonight and Monday morning. Conditions
lifting toVFR by late Monday morning and afternoon. Ifr likely
returning early Monday evening and night.

Marine As of 10:38 pm pdt Sunday... Weakening high pressure over
the eastern pacific will keep light winds over the coastal waters
through about the middle of the week. Sea breezes will develop in
the afternoons and evenings over the san francisco bay to the
delta.

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.
