Synopsis A gradual cooling trend will continue through late week
with periods of night and morning low clouds. Temperatures will
begin to warm slightly this weekend and rebound back to near
seasonal averages by next week.

Discussion As of 09:00 pm pdt Wednesday... Interesting
evolution in today's weather under sunny skies. Temperatures were
forecast to moderate or drop a few degrees under a somewhat flat
flow aloft. Upon closer inspection the cooldown did occur across
the coast and inland valleys - both santa cruz and santa rosa were
much cool today. The interesting part is above the seabreeze with
a slight northerly flow over the hills leading to much warmer
weather. In other words, all about micro-climates today with some
warmer and some colder.

The last few images of the visible satellite show the marine layer
makes its nightly return with some low clouds already pushing into
the salinas valley. The marine layer will likely fill in pretty
solid overnight. The latest 00z models even show a few hundredths
of precip, which is usually a sign of patchy drizzle. Latest
forecast remains on track for the near term and see no reason to
update the forecast.

Night and morning clouds will continue over the next few days with
onshore flow. The resulting sensible weather will be continued
cooling through at least Saturday. A slight uptick in temperatures
are expected on Sunday with slight warming aloft and high
pressure to the east. Next week is beginning to look a little
different than what it did a few days ago. A ridge is still
forecast to build over the four corners region and nudge westward
early next week. The westward nudging looks to now be hampered by
a trough deepening off the west coast. The forecast will still
show a warming trend next week, but it will be a battle between
the ridge to the east and the trough to the west for how warm it
actually gets. Stay tuned...

Aviation As of 10:25 pm pdt Wednesday... Vlifr-ifr is proceeding
to cover the immediate coastline due to low stratus ceilings and
fog. Vlifr-ifr is likely to extend through the golden gate to the
east bay as well as extending into the salinas valley otherwise
vfr is quite likely to continue most inland locations for tonight
and Thursday. Winds are overall much weaker since the synoptic
pattern over norcal has changed since yesterday.

Boundary layer winds on the WRF model and on the NAM 925 mb and
850 mb wind fields indicate a weak cyclonic circulation will drift
southwestward to the coastal waters west of the north bay Thursday
setting up a more robust onshore flow for Thursday, this should
boost seabreezes everywhere more than seen today; 06z TAF wind
speed forecasts generally above statistical guidance.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR continues tonight into Thursday. West wind
gusts near 25 knots or slightly higher resume Thursday afternoon
and evening.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Vlifr-ifr due to low stratus ceilings and
fog tonight and Thursday morning. Clearing toVFR likely by late
Thursday morning, onshore winds more robust Thursday afternoon and
early evening than today.

Marine As of 10:07 pm pdt Wednesday... Wind flow in the near
term is from the south from the monterey bay southward along the
big sur coast and variable to northwest over the remainder of the
coastal waters. Gusty west winds developing over the san francisco
bay to the delta Thursday afternoon and evening. Light long
period southerly swell will continue into Thursday.

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.
