Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Moderate to locally strong northwest winds will persist over the northern and outer coastal waters through Tuesday. These winds will generate steep fresh swell resulting in hazardous conditions for small craft vessels. Additionally, winds will be strong from the golden gate through the delta. By midweek, a nearly stationary low pressure trough will develop over the coastal waters and cause winds to shift to a southerly direction mainly over the southern and inner coastal waters. A longer period south swell will mix with the steep fresh northwest swell.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 1031 AM PDT Mon Jul 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. Interior areas are forecast to cool through midweek as onshore flow increases and high pressure weakens. Temperatures will then likely remain near seasonal averages for the remainder of the week and into next weekend. Expect increasing night and morning low clouds through midweek.

DISCUSSION. as of 09:13 AM PDT Monday . Marine layer is back up to around 1500ft this morning on the Fort Ord Temperature Profiler as boundary layer conditions return to what is expected for early- to- mid July.

The marine layer is back in full swing thanks to the weakening upper-level ridge, which has trekked eastward into the Texas Panhandle. Low-clouds and fog are widespread along the coast, with stratus inclusion dominating the Golden Gate and northwestern Alameda county. Drizzle has also been observed in several coastal locations including Monterey Bay. Other interesting features this morning include the stratus layer that's snaked its way into the Salinas Valley, and an eddy to the south of our CWA and just off the coast of San Luis Obispo.

Min temps across the interior were observed in the upper 50s to low 60s F range with higher- elevation areas like those up in the East Hills just barely making it into the low 60s F. This a sharp contrast from the 70s F that were observed on Saturday and Sunday Morning.

Troughing over the Western Canadian Prairies and the Pacific Northwest has reintroduced onshore flow that is typical for this time of the year. Expect cooling trend across the interior, where max temps will be 7 to 12 degrees F lower than yesterday's. As we head into Tuesday and Wednesday, off-shore cyclonic flow will increase, resulting in southerly flow near the surface which will allow for more cooling to occur along the coast. Due to this setup we should also expect the marine layer to continue to build and for lower morning ceilings as the workweek progresses.

Another disturbance is set to develop off the Gulf of Alaska and make its way down the Alexander Archipelago, with its axis expected to be over Vancouver Island sometime Thursday morning/afternoon. In essence, this week's setup will be quite the opposite of what we experienced last week, with seasonable temperatures and conditions expected over the entire CWA through Friday. Nevertheless, there does appear to be a chance for some onshore show to occur through the weekend, which could lead to a slight uptick in temps across the interior.

AVIATION. as of 10:25 AM PDT Monday . for 18z TAFs. Morning low clouds continue to dissipate. VFR at most terminals with the hold outs being MRY and SNS with a few low lingering clouds. Expect VFR this afternoon at all terminals. Marine layer is forecast to return again tonight:farther inland and slightly deeper.

Vicinity of KSFO . VFR expected through early tonight. Breezy to occasionally NW winds will impact the terminal through late this afternoon. Not strong enough for Aubert Weather Warning, but gusts 25-30kt possible. Lower conf on clouds tonight, but given how close they were this morning and the forecast for a deeper marine layer, decided to bring clouds in late tonight.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . Lingering IFR conditions will continue to diminish for SNS and lastly MRY. VFR expected this afternoon with breezy onshore flow. Low CIGS return late this afternoon/early evening with some patchy fog.

MARINE. as of 10:20 AM PDT Monday . High pressure to the north and low pressure inland will result in gusty northwest winds over the northern and outer coastal waters through Tuesday. These winds will generate steep fresh swell resulting in hazardous conditions for small craft vessels. By midweek, a nearly stationary low pressure trough will develop over the coastal waters and cause winds to shift to a southerly direction mainly over the southern and inner coastal waters. A longer period south swell will mix with the steep fresh northwest 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.
