AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 440 AM PDT Tue May 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather and warm interior temperatures will persist through Friday as high pressure continues to build over Northwest California. Onshore breezes will keep coastal areas seasonable cool, along with periodic episodes of overnight and early morning marine stratus. There is a chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms beginning Friday evening and lasting through the weekend.

DISCUSSION. High pressure remains in place over California. Marine influence will become more widespread across the coastal zones as onshore flow and marine layer depth increases each day. Thus more widespread coastal stratus . fog and possible drizzle at the coast can be expected to continue along with later clearing during the day. High pressure is expected to continue building in through Wednesday and temperatures will continue to warm slightly. Highs are expected in the mid to upper 90s across the interior. Offshore flow may increase slightly Wednesday afternoon and Thursday allowing the coast to warm slightly and possibly clear out more quickly. A cut off low pressure system currently well off the coast of southern CA will move northward and is expected to reach the Bay Area on Friday. Main impacts with this will be increasing chances of widespread shower activity along with isolated thunderstorms across the interior late Friday and Saturday. Fridays storms initially look dry but rain chance increase on Saturday. Forecast models also showing some elevated shear associated with the instability . thus there is some potential of the thunderstorm cells providing some gusty winds, heavy showers and hail on Saturday as well. A significant cooling trend will begin this weekend. MKK/JT

AVIATION. LIFR Cigs have positioned firmly over coastal terminals this morning with winds out of the west and northwest. The depth and coverage of the layer, along with expected relatively lighter winds today may prevent significant improvement throughout the day. An optimistic scattering into the early afternoon is possible, though coastal Del Norte may hold a BKN Cigs. Interior areas will remain VFR/Sct250.

MARINE. Fresh to strong northerly winds and steep seas are expected across the waters through Friday. As the north winds and steep seas in the northern waters continue to temporarily subside, the southern waters will maintain SCA levels. A SCA has been hoisted for the Northern Outer waters for this evening through overnight Wednesday for steep seas and northerly winds around 20 kt. The entire SCA package will likely need to be extended through Friday as the pressure gradient remains tight and expands locally in fetch. A subsequent short period northerly wave will contribute to combined sea heights of 10' over most of the waters Friday, expected to back off Friday evening.

EKA WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Heat Advisory from noon today to 6 PM PDT Thursday for CAZ110- 113>115.

NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA COASTAL WATERS . Small Craft Advisory until 9 AM PDT this morning for PZZ450-470.

Small Craft Advisory until 1 AM PDT Thursday for PZZ455-475.

Small Craft Advisory from 11 PM this evening to 1 AM PDT Thursday for PZZ470.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
