New UPDATE, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 247 AM PDT Thu Jun 13 2024

Quiet through the rest of the week with slight warm up on Friday across the interior. Near normal temperatures by the weekend.
Increasing confidence for high wind potential and increased fire danger Sunday into early next week.

UPDATE
Issued at 207 PM PDT Thu Jun 13 2024

Quiet through the rest of the week with slight warm up on Friday across the interior. Near normal temperatures by the weekend.
Increasing confidence for high wind potential and increased fire danger Sunday into early next week.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 207 PM PDT Thu Jun 13 2024

Zonal flow has caused some rinse and repeat for weather conditions today, compared to yesterday. Most of the clouds have eroded back to the coast while areas in Monterey Bay and Salinas, still remain pretty socked in with some low clouds and is anticipated to remain so for the rest of the day. Overnight temperatures will also be similar to last night but a few areas in the North Bay will see 1-3 degrees warmer with minimum temperatures in the 50s, while the remaining of the region will see upper 40s to mid 50s. As a weak ridge moves over the region tomorrow, expect max temperatures to become warmer compared to today with inland areas seeing mid 80s to low 90s. Coastline remains pretty consistent with low 60s.

LONG TERM
(Friday night through next Wednesday)
Issued at 207 PM PDT Thu Jun 13 2024

As we move into the weekend, a deep low pressure system pattern dips down into our area bringing some cooler temperatures and some increased winds. Max temperatures inland will reach up to mid to high 80s Saturday, with temperatures beginning to dropping a few degrees every day with Sunday and Monday seeing temperatures in the low 80s and 70s. The coast will remain in the high 50 to 60s through the weekend into the first half of next week. Overnight lows generally will be in the 50s through most of the area. Winds will also increase as the trough deepens into our area causing some gusty winds throughout our region, with the highest possible winds speeds between 30-40 mph occuring over the waters, coastal area, valleys and inland coastal gaps.

Although we will have some moisture recovery overnight through the weekend, there is some fire concerns Sunday into Monday, as there have been recent drying of fine fuels and grasses. We are expecting overall onshore winds associated with this low pressure system, but depending on the magnitude and positioning of the trough, offshore winds are not completely off the table. This will dry fuels out even further. With the ensemble members showing some differences in the magnitude of the trough, we are able to explore a best case and worse case scenario for elevated fire concerns. The best case, is represented by the European and GFS ensembles where it supports a deepening of the trough, which will bring some moist air, cooler temperatures, and stronger onshore winds, which will alleviate some fire concerns. The worst case scenario would be if the trough becomes weak or a short wave ridging develops. This will bring the possibility of offshore winds, drier conditions, and warmer temperatures, which will increase some fire weather concerns. Therefore, we will continue to monitor the trough as it gets closer to our region to update our forecast, as well as our messaging.

As we move into the middle of the week, long-range models show a possible ridging or weakening of the trough that will bring possible warmer temperatures. Stay tuned!

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1113 AM PDT Thu Jun 13 2024

Stratus coverage continues over MRY and SNS while satellite shows stratus coverage dissipating over STS, APC, and OAK. The marine layer is expected to compress tonight with less widespread stratus than last night. Current thinking is that stratus will generally stick closer to the coast and SF bay. Low confidence that stratus will reach STS and APC but models indicate some lower level clouds may be possible. Forecast vertical wind profiles show RH values generally 50 to 60 percent so leaning towards the side that any clouds that do develop will be on the FEW to SCT side. Light to moderate west to northwesterly winds continue through the afternoon with gustier conditions returning through the afternoon into the evening. Light west to southwesterly winds return overnight for most sites before moderate winds return after the end of this TAF period.

Vicinity of SFO...Moderate west to west-northwest winds continue through the afternoon before lighter westerly winds return overnight. Some uncertainty remains in wind direction but models are in higher agreement that winds stay more W to NW. Moderate confidence that MVFR conditions will return overnight with low confidence that a more compressed marine layer will push ceiling heights down into IFR territory.

SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals...Currently MVFR at MRY and SNS. Moderate confidence that ceilings at MRY will not clear as satellite shows a thicker layer of clouds over the area. Clearing at SNS is a little more uncertain with models split on if ceilings will clear this afternoon. Based on satellite trends showing stratus dissipating in the vicinity of SNS - leaning towards stratus clearing for at least a few hours this afternoon. Stratus will return early this evening at SNS with MVFR to IFR CIGs expected overnight. Winds will generally stay west to northwest with strong, gustier winds expected during the afternoon and early evening.
