Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Northwest winds across the waters will generate a steep northwest swell hazardous to small craft vessels at 8 to 10 second periods tonight into Friday. A coastally trapped southerly wind reversal will also develop turning winds to a southwesterly direction along the coast late tonight through Friday. A decreasing northerly pressure gradient and winds Friday will ease aforementioned wind generated seas. Small, longer period swells will move through the coastal waters next week.

area forecast discussion
national weather service san francisco bay area
1114 pm pdt Thu aug 22 2019

Synopsis The warm temperatures today cool slightly on Friday
across the bay area. However, high dew point temperatures
tomorrow will keep inland areas feeling warmer. Temperatures will
increase this weekend as high pressure builds over california
lasting through the early work week. By midweek, moisture
increases as the remnants of ivo traverses northward in the
pacific ocean just off the california coast allowing muggy
conditions to return.

Discussion As of 9:40 pm pdt Thursday... Higher humidity values
today, especially this morning, resulted in much warmer minimum
temperatures, especially in higher terrain areas. This morning's
lows ranged from the upper 50s to the lower 70s, which were as
many as 10 to 15 degrees above yesterday's mins in some cases.

High temperatures today were a mixed bag, with some warmer and
some slightly cooler than yesterday's values. Today's highs ranged
from the 60s to lower 70s at the immediate coast to the 80s and
90s most other locations. The warmest locations reached 100
degrees, bookending our cwa, at pope valley in northern napa
county, as well as bradley in southern monterey county. Current
observations indicate that dew point temperatures are cooler than
last night at this time, thus, expect cooler minimum temperatures
tonight. Latest satellite imagery shows scant stratus formation
thus far, limited to along the coast from san mateo county south
as well as through the monterey bay and starting to extend down
the salinas valley. The marine layer depth is a little higher per
the fort ord profiler, and onshore flow persists with 2.5 mb
between sfo and sac, so expect the area of low clouds to expand
farther inland overnight. Did a minor update to the temperature
forecast for tomorrow, mainly to cool some temperatures somewhat
to reflect a slightly stronger seabreeze by tomorrow afternoon.

Previous discussion There are higher dewpoint temperatures
today around the bay area, ranging from 61 in salinas to 69 in san
jose giving a muggy feel to the day. The marine layer has been
pseudo- constant around 1500 feet the last few hours and will
remain fairly shallow overnight, though patchy fog may be possible
in the early morning hours along the coast. Onshore flow
strengthens slightly tomorrow, providing slightly cooler
temperatures on Friday. Lingering higher dew point temperatures
inland will keep temperatures feeling warmer for interior
locations.

High pressure builds over california this weekend which will drive a
warming trend for temperatures. Temperatures will MAX out on Sunday
in the mid to upper 90s, with isolated locations in southern san
benito and monterey counties reaching the low 100s. However, those
values are based on current models having the ridge axis of high
pressure north of the bay area. If the ridge retrogrades slightly,
temperatures around our area could increase even higher, thus will
be monitored as the next round of models are produced.

The warming trend looks to continue through the early part of the
work week. By Wednesday, the remnants of the tropical system ivo
will have moved northward in the pacific just west of the bay area.

Ivo will bring an increase in moisture giving a better chance for
clouds cover across the area and an overall muggy feeling. No
precipitation or thunderstorms are currently forecast, though it
will be something that will be closely monitored as the time
interval draws closer.

Aviation As of 11:14 pm pdt Thursday...VFR except vlifr-ifr
along the coast, extending eastward over the san francisco bay,
and also moving into nearby coastal valleys tonight and Friday
morning. On Friday diurnal mixing should lift ceilings toVFR at
most, mainly inland, terminals, however in terms of areal coverage
of coastal stratus and fog it's a very low confidence forecast for
Friday into Saturday morning; a 4 mb smx-sfo pressure gradient
and wind will be juxtaposed to a diminishing 3 mb or less acv-sfo
pressure gradient and wind resulting in any combination of coverage.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR, west wind has diminished. Seeing signs that
the aforementioned smx-sfo pressure gradient is getting a foothold
(usually the NAM is slow with this forecast). Under a compressed
marine layer this combination should keepVFR going for the period.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals... Vlifr-ifr due to increasing stratus and
fog coverage extending into the salinas valley. Low ceilings and
visibilities lift toVFR by late Friday morning, then low confidence
stratus and fog return Friday evening and night.

Marine As of 9:17 pm pdt Thursday... Northwest winds across the
waters will generate a steep northwest swell hazardous to small
craft vessels at 8 to 10 second periods tonight into Friday. A
coastally trapped southerly wind reversal will also develop
turning winds to a southwesterly direction along the coast late
tonight through Friday. A decreasing northerly pressure gradient
and winds Friday will ease aforementioned wind generated seas.

Small, longer period swells will move through the coastal waters
next week.

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.
