New AVIATION

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 1238 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Dry and windy with elevated fire concerns into early next week.
Seasonal temps and quiet weather midweek. Potential warming trend for late next week.

UPDATE
Issued at 849 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Temperatures this afternoon were actually slightly WARMER that yesterday as northerly flow increased and sunny sky conditions prevailed. Overnight low temperatures are expected to cool into the upper 40's to low 50's for most areas while slightly warmer in the hills and higher terrain. Tomorrow, expect similar temperatures as today with 80's across the interior, 70's just inland away from the coast, and 60's near the coast. RH values again are expected to drop into the teens and twenties across the interior tomorrow afternoon while onshore flow keeps more moist conditions near the coast. A wildfire started in San Benito County this afternoon and last reported at 400 acres and 20% contained - Hernandez Fire. Again, be mindful and don't be "that spark". The ongoing forecast remains on track with no updates expected at this time.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 1238 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Clear skies continue into the evening with drier conditions compared to yesterday evening. N-S gradient continues to strengthen bringing some occasional gusty strong winds, especially over the hills, coastal gaps, and mountain ranges, into the late evening. The winds will mostly have impacts over our marine zones where winds can reach up to 45-55 mph, especially along the Big Sur coast. With this strong gradient and drier air conditions, clouds will remain mixed out going into Sunday, giving us a break from the June-Gloom. With the clear skies, expect a few degrees lower tonight, compared to last night as radiative cooling goes into effect. Minimum temperatures will get down to mid 40s to mid 50s across the region.
As we low pressure system off the Pacific NE move closer inland and sit over Washington and Oregon state on Sunday, expect another day of cooler temperatures. Inland areas are looking to see high 70s to low 80s, with the coastline seeing max temperatures in the 60s. Strong northerly winds will also support cooler temperatures going into Sunday.

LONG TERM
(Sunday night through next Friday)
Issued at 1238 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

As we move into the beginning of the work week, we will start to see that low pressure system gradually dip down even further into our area, allowing for some strong gusty winds to persist Sunday into Monday. This does bring some fire concerns as the minimum relative humidity values are expected to get down to the teens in certain parts of the region. Although there are some areas in our region that bring elevated fire concerns, no RFW have been issued as the overall conditions have not met warning criteria for our area at this moment. Fire conditions will be closely monitored, especially if the north/northeast winds linger and low relative humidity continues beyond Monday afternoon. (See Fire Weather discussion below for more details)

As we move into Tuesday, we will start to see the N-S gradients to gradually decrease as the upper level pattern start to transition into a zonal/weak ridging pattern. This will bring a warming trend starting Thursday with temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s going into the weekend with some chances of triple digit values. CPC and WPC outlooks also show portions of our area for excessive heat with a 50-60% above normal temperatures.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1023 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

VFR conditions throughout the region, generally through the TAF period. Model output has some probability of stratus development tonight at the immediate coast and the Monterey Bay region, but confidence is low and strong winds aloft may keep the skies clear through the night. Northwest winds will abate at the terminals, but will remain breezy through the night before strong northwest winds with gusts up to 20 to 30 knots resume Sunday afternoon. Marginal LLWS concerns will develop on Sunday evening along the coastal ranges as the surface layer decouples, but confidence is too low to include it in the TAFs.

Vicinity of SFO... VFR through the TAF period. West-northwest winds will remain breezy and gusty overnight with intense gusts returning on Sunday afternoon. Moderate confidence that gusts at SFO will exceed 35 knots sometime on Sunday. Additional TAF updates will take newer model cguidance into account. Marginal LLWS concerns develop on Sunday evening close to the end of the TAF period.

SFO Bridge Approach... Similar to SFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals... Model output shows some probability of IFR ceilings developing in the region later tonight, but confidence is low and the TAFs remain VFR throughout. Onshore winds will remain breezy through the night before becoming strong on Sunday afternoon with gusts up to 20-25 knots.

MARINE
(Tonight through next Friday)
Issued at 849 PM PDT Sat Jun 15 2024

A tight pressure gradient over the waters continues to allow for strong northwest breezes and widespread gale force gusts to persist through the weekend. Significant wave heights will reach 12-17 feet through the weekend before beginning to decrease Monday. Hazardous conditions will linger into the first half of next week as winds remain strong.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 345 AM PDT Sat Jun 14 2024

Elevated Fire Weather Conditions Through The Weekend

*Increasing northerly winds, especially higher terrain *Lowering relative humidity values day and night

Forecast remains on track as northerly flow ramps up across the district. Gusts of 30-50 mph will be more common along the coast, higher terrain, and inland gaps/passes. Have already seen a few isolated inland passes reach close to 60 mph as well. These stronger winds will persist through early Monday. It should be noted that they will not be strong the entire time, more like bursts of stronger winds. The northerly flow has also ushered in much drier air across the region too. 24 hour trends show some locations 40-70% drier than 24 hours ago. While there are a few isolated stations that may "technically" reach Red Flag criteria conditions are not widespread enough to warrant a fire weather zone wide Red Flag warning. Therefore, still best to message elevated fire weather conditions through the weekend.

Regardless, individuals with outdoor activities planned this weekend should be fire weather aware. Be mindful and don't be "that spark".
