New AVIATION, MARINE

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 127 PM PDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Dry conditions are here to stay with a gradual warming trend through midweek, peaking on Wednesday and/or Thursday. Onshore flow increases toward the end of the week; cooling temperatures near the coast as marine stratus returns.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 127 PM PDT Mon Apr 15 2024

A gradual warming trend will kick off today with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s near the coast and upper 60s inland. Low clouds and/or fog make a return tonight, most likely across the North Bay, with slightly warmer temperatures. Still, overnight lows will drop into the mid 40s for most locations.

By Tuesday the warming trend will continue with afternoon highs expected to range from the 60s to lower 70s near the coast with mid- to-upper 70s inland. Dry conditions will also continue throughout the forecast period.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday night through Sunday)
Issued at 216 AM PDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Looking ahead to mid-week, warmer, drier weather reigns as ridging builds in from the west. A warming trend will begin mid-week with Wednesday and Thursday looking to be the warmest days. Inland highs will reach the mid to upper 70's and a few locations may reach the low 80's. Moving into Friday temperatures will cool down slightly to the upper 60's to mid 70's as upper level ridging becomes more zonal and allows for increased onshore flow.

High pressure will keep precipitation pushed northward of the Bay Area with the CPC highlighting below average precipitation for next 6-10 days. Ensemble guidance indicates that unsettled weather may return towards the end of April but as of now confidence remains low.
