AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION . CORRECTED National Weather Service Eureka CA 454 AM PDT Wed Apr 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather is expected today through Thursday as a ridge aloft builds toward the West Coast. Above normal temperatures are expected in the interior. A shallow marine layer will keep temperatures much cooler for coastal areas through Thursday.

DISCUSSION. Warmer temperatures are expected across the interior today as an upper level ridge builds toward the Pacific NW. Temperatures are expected to warm into the 70s and lower 80s in the interior. Coastal areas may warm into the lower 60s today. The stratus has been slowly eroding along the Del Norte county coast, but remained firmly entrenched over coastal areas of Humboldt and Mendocino counties. Coastal areas should see more sunshine today as the marine layer compresses in response to the large scale sinking associated with the offshore ridge. A pronounced low level offshore flow along the Del Norte county coast will aid in stratus eradication. Farther south, low level northerly onshore flow is expected to persist. The stratus may end up back building in the Eel Delta and over the Humboldt Bay area this afternoon and evening. High resolution models indicate a wind reversal developing tonight south of Cape Mendo. Stratus and fog will probably redevelop south of the Cape along the Mendocino coast and eventually spread northward on Thursday.

The offshore ridge will hold Friday through the weekend. Dry weather is expected. A blocking flow pattern will likely keep the forecast area dry early next week as well.

AVIATION. An extensive marine layer is once again impacting much of the North Coast and the Eel River Valley, with IFR ceilings being observed at both KCEC and KACV early this morning. An uptick in offshore flow later this morning and a drier air mass should help to scour out the marine layer a bit more efficiently than yesterday at the coastal terminals. Current satellite trends suggest that KCEC will clear out first this morning as stratus coverage is much more sparse along the Del Norte Coast. Cloud cover may take a bit longer to dissipate around Humboldt Bay, but still expecting KACV to clear by around 18z, yielding VFR conditions across the area for the rest of the day. Stratus and possibly some patchy fog will likely return to the coastal terminals after dark, bringing another round of IFR conditions through at least Thursday morning. /CB

MARINE. Forecast thinking is largely unchanged as high pressure over the northeast Pacific continues to promote a strong northerly wind regime over the northern CA coastal waters through the end of the week and beyond. Short period seas will continue to build today in response to the prolonged northerlies, with the worst conditions remaining over the outer waters. Increased offshore flow on Thursday may induce a brief weakening trend in the winds south of Cape Mendocino, but the steep short period seas will likely be enough to sustain the Small Craft Advisory through that time for the southern outer zone. Meanwhile, stronger winds and higher seas in the nearshore zones will generally be confined to the typically favored locations near and downwind of Point Saint George and Cape Mendocino over the next few days. The nearshore waters along the Mendocino Coast will remain a little more sheltered from the northerly wind- driven waves, and thus no advisory is anticipated for the southern nearshore zone at this time. /CB

EKA WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . None. NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA COASTAL WATERS . Small Craft Advisory until noon PDT Thursday for PZZ450-475. Small Craft Advisory until noon PDT Friday for PZZ470.
