Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... High pressure off the california coast is weakening as a low pressure system develops off the pacific northwest resulting in decreasing winds. However, gusty winds will develop over the southern inner coastal waters later today into Tuesday. The sea state will remain dominated by shorter period northwest waves at around 8 to 10 seconds along with a light southerly swell.

Synopsis A deep marine layer will prevail through today,
maintaining widespread morning low clouds and cooler than normal
inland temperatures. Patchy drizzle is possible through mid
morning. Warmer temperatures will develop by midweek and continue
through the upcoming weekend as high pressure rebuilds.

Discussion As of 3:50 am pdt Monday... The marine layer remains
deep early this morning with the fort ord profiler indicating a
depth of more than 3000 feet. The deep stratus cloud layer has
been producing patchy drizzle overnight. The watsonville and
salinas airports have reported trace amounts of precipitation and
a few locations in the santa cruz mountains have picked up
measurable precipitation for the third night in a row (although
amounts are mostly only 0.01"). Conditions early this morning are
much like yesterday morning with similar marine layer depth and
light to moderate onshore flow. So, expect gradual clearing of low
clouds once again today, with some areas likely to remain under
low clouds well into the afternoon hours. Also, cooler than normal
temperatures will continue for inland areas. It appears the eddy
circulation that was over our coastal waters yesterday may be
dissipating. Thus, low level southerly flow will likely end which
should mean more afternoon clearing in the north bay valleys and
santa cruz county compared to yesterday, and also slightly warmer
temps in these areas.

An upper level ridge currently centered over west texas is
forecast to expand westward and across southern california by
midweek. This will result in a compression of the marine layer
over the next few days. In addition, low level flow is forecast to
return to a more typical northwesterly direction which should diminish
inland marine air transport by midweek. The result will be
warming temperatures starting tomorrow, and especially Wednesday
and Thursday. An upper trough is forecast to move over the ridge
and into the pacific northwest on Wednesday, but is not expected
to have a material impact on our weather. By Thursday inland
valleys highs are forecast reach back into the 90s and be about
8-12 degrees warmer than today, yet not nearly as warm as last
Wednesday Thursday.

Although the upper ridge is forecast to strengthen a bit more late
in the week and into next weekend, both the GFS and ecmwf
indicate an end to the warming trend by Friday and even some
localized cooling on Friday and Saturday. This unexpected
temperature trend can likely be attributed to the development of a
surface trough offshore by Friday (something both the GFS and
ecmwf forecast). This trough will generate light southerly low
level flow along our coast from Friday on into the weekend.

Southerly flow will allow for better inland transport of marine
air and thus put an end to the warming trend, or reverse it in
locations such as the north bay valleys and santa cruz county.

Something to watch in the longer range is the potential for a
tropical system developing off the west coast of mexico and then
tracking northwest near the baja peninsula. Based on current model
output there is at least an outside chance that moisture from
this system could make it as far north as central california
during the first half of next week.

Aviation As of 4:50 am pdt Monday... Stratus in a deep marine
layer continues to advance inland. METAR observations show MVFR
cloud ceilings are fairly widespread, only far inland valleys are
holding ontoVFR. Along the immediate coastline ifr is reported
along with patchy drizzle. Pressure gradients and winds should
focus more from the west today versus on Sunday, diurnal warming
and mixing winds eroding the stratus back to the coastline VFR
by late morning and afternoon. The WRF model then shows the stratus
layer rolling back inland this evening and tonight. Ceilings tonight
similarly returning to MVFR-ifr categories exceptVFR well inland.

Vicinity of ksfo... MVFR forecast until 17z thenVFR, west winds
increasing to 15 knots with gusts to 20 to 25 knots 20z today.

MVFR ceiling returning by mid evening and for the overnight hours.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... MVFR ceilings until 18z-19z.VFR in the
afternoon then MVFR returning early to mid evening and for the
overnight hours.

Marine As of 3:06 am pdt Monday... High pressure off the
california coast is weakening as a low pressure system develops
off the pacific northwest resulting in decreasing winds. However,
gusty winds will develop over the southern inner coastal waters
later today into Tuesday. The sea state will remain dominated by
shorter period northwest waves at around 8 to 10 seconds along
with a light southerly swell.

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.
