AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 245 PM PDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Temperatures across interior portions of northwest California will peak from 100 to 110 Friday afternoon. Conditions will then cool during the weekend into early next week. Otherwise, isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible across the interior mountains through Monday.

DISCUSSION. Relatively moist mid/upper-level southerlies persist over NRN CA between an anticyclone to the east and troughing to the west. That regime combined with strong afternoon surface heating and steepening lapse rates is aiding in the development of deepening surface based cumulus over the Yolla Bolly Mountains and Trinity Alps. A few thunderstorms will likely evolve out of that cumulus field through the evening. Thereafter, a plume of monsoon moisture collocated with a pseudo elevated mixed layer emanating from the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains is forecast to spread northwest toward the EKA CWA during Friday morning. Elevated showers and thunderstorms may spread across the area as a result. However, cloudiness with that activity may also inhibit strong surface heating going into Friday afternoon and subsequently preclude robust surface based destabilization. Thus, additional storm development during peak portions of the diurnal heating cycle is uncertain at this time.

Beyond Friday . model guidance supports additional mountain thunderstorm development on a daily afternoon basis through Monday, though activity is expected to become increasingly confined to northern Trinity County. Otherwise, upper ridging and the most intense summer heat is forecast to shift east across the Rockies, with south-southwesterly flow aloft persisting through mid week. Warm, but not excessively hot temperatures will be probable across interior portions of NWRN CA as a result.

AVIATION. The marine layer remains very shallow along the coast this afternoon. As of 1pm it is hugging the coast from Trinidad all the way south past Pt Arena. Currently it is remaining off the land. HREF ceiling probabilities show it surging onshore this evening by 02Z or 03Z to KACV and KCEC and bringing in very low CIGS and VIS. Kept this idea in the TAFS, although brought it in later than the models show as it has been slow to come in the last several days. However, with it so close to shore it may come in sooner than expected. When it does come in expect it will be LIFR conditions with vis a half or a quarter mile. Friday models show it clearing out again by mid to late morning with a shallow marine layer. Inland areas are seeing some mid level clouds in association with some monsoon moisture moving north. This is expected to bring a few thunderstorms over Trinity county this afternoon, but these are not expected to impact KUKI. Late tonight into Friday there is the potential for a few thunderstorms to move across the area. These are expected to remain away from the coast and KUKI, but there is a small chance they will make impact the TAF sites Friday. MKK

MARINE. Winds and seas remain fairly calm this afternoon. Currently a small northwest wave that is a combination wind wave and fresh swell is around 3 to 5 feet at 6 to 8 seconds. In the southern waters there is also a lingering 1 to 2 foot southerly swell around 14 seconds. Tonight into Friday models are showing a subtle strengthening in the northerly winds to around 15 to 25 kt and seas to building to around 5 to 7 feet. The small craft advisories starting tonight remain on track. The southerly swell is expected to diminish tonight. Friday afternoon winds are expected to drop slightly in the outer waters and this should be enough to allow the small craft advisories to expire. Late Friday night and into the weekend winds and seas will likely flirt with small craft advisory conditions for much of the time and additional advisories may be needed to highlight this. Conditions are expected to remain fairly similar into early next week. MKK

FIRE WEATHER. Afternoon and evening thunderstorm development will be possible across the interior mountains through Monday, though storm development will become increasingly confined to northern Trinity County by early next week. In addition, lightning coverage may be sufficient for a Red Flag Warning from Friday morning through Friday evening across Trinity, northeast Mendocino, northern Lake, eastern Humboldt, and eastern Del Norte Counties. However, it is uncertain whether high based morning shower and storm development will reduce instability during Friday afternoon and subsequently inhibit redevelopment of storms during the hottest part of the day. Otherwise, interior valley temperatures will peak from 100 to 110 during Friday afternoon. That will be followed by a cooling trend this weekend into early next week.
