Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Robust northerly gradient will bring moderate to locally gusty northwest winds across the coastal waters today and tomorrow. Northwest winds will generate steep fresh swell resulting in hazardous conditions for small craft vessels. A longer period south swell will mix with the steep fresh northwest swell. A nearly stationary and mainly dry low pressure trough will develop over the coastal waters Tuesday through Thursday resulting in southerly winds mainly over the inner and southern coastal waters.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Sacramento CA 204 PM PDT Sun Jul 12 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather with seasonably hot temperatures continuing, though Delta influenced areas will see a bit of a break from triple digit heat this week. Thunderstorms will be possible near the crest Wednesday and Thursday.

DISCUSSION. Trough will be moving through the Pacific Northwest over the next day and high pressure over the Pacific will spread closer to the west coast. This will allow for the marine stratus deck to reform along the coast. Some stratus will start to reform overnight tonight in the Bay Area with some better formation expected Monday night. The Delta breeze will increase starting later this evening and have stronger flow through Wednesday. The strongest winds will occur at night with winds 15 to 25 mph and local gusts to 35 mph. The stronger flow will help to cool temperatures for the Sacramento region with highs expected in the mid to upper 90s through Tuesday. Little change is expected further inland. Slightly warmer temperatures are expected on Wednesday due to high pressure strengthening over the region. Redding could see temperatures heat up to near 110 degrees.

On Wednesday a weak upper low off the Southern California coast will help to spread some monsoonal moisture northward and may bring some thunderstorms along the crest late in the day and evening. Southeast to east flow aloft should help to carry any storms/moisture westward. At this time there is just a mention near the crest south of Lake Tahoe but it is something to keep an eye on in terms of possible coverage should storms persist late into the evening.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Thursday THROUGH Sunday).

While the prevailing westerlies stay confined to the Pacific Northwest and points northward, a sprawling ridge of high pressure will remain in place from the eastern Pacific to the Southern Plains. However, this ridge should have a weakness in it as a broad trough elongates off the California coast. Although synoptic gradients are fairly weaken (ridge/trough height differences of around 6-8 dm), the combination of these features may bring subtropical moisture into the picture by mid to late in the work week. The guidance diverge in whether to bring any showers/thunderstorms to the Sierra on Thursday with the 12Z GFS remaining on the optimistic side. Energetics with the offshore trough combined with any emergence of instability will increase the likelihood of shower activity across the higher terrain. Have introduced a chance of such storms over eastern Tuolumne and western Alpine Counties for Thursday afternoon and evening.

Even though mid-level heights come down a bit within this mentioned weakness in the ridge, daily temperatures are forecast to run slightly above average throughout the week. Triple digits are most likely to be found across the northern and central Sacramento Valley into the adjacent lower Sierra foothills. Periods of enhanced Delta flow should keep the lower Sacramento Valley into the San Joaquin Valley closer to the mid to upper 90s. Although no records are being broken during this extended period of heat, temperatures will remain above average with some overnight relief in Delta influenced locations. ~BRO

AVIATION.

VFR conditions next 24 hours. Local southwesterly surface wind 15-25 kts with gusts to 35 kts vicinity Carquinez Strait and west Delta after 03Z.

STO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.
