AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Eureka CA 253 PM 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 overnight and morning marine stratus. There is a chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms Friday and Saturday over the interior.

DISCUSSION. High pressure continues to bring hot weather to the interior areas this afternoon. Temperatures are generally warming about the same as yesterday. There is some lingering stratus along the coast, but most areas will see a few hours of sun before the clouds come back in quickly this evening. The marine layer is about 1,500 feet deep. Tonight the stratus is expected to be similar to this morning.

Wednesday and Thursday inland temperatures are expected to continue to warm with highs in the upper 90s to around 100 on Thursday in most inland areas. Thursday late in the afternoon there is a small chance for thunderstorms in the northern Trinity Alps, but if anything forms it is only expected to be a storm or two. The NAM is showing some decent instability, but there isn't much of a trigger. The terrain could help trigger these storms. It is possible a heat advisory will be needed for Thursday if the forecast continues to look as hot as it is today.

Friday an upper level low starts to approach the area. This is expected to deepen the marine layer in the morning allowing for more stratus intrusion. Temperatures are expected to start cooling off a bit, especially in the near coastal areas that see some marine influence. This cooling aloft also looks to bring some thunderstorms to the interior. The models are showing fairly high instability and there is some decent deep shear Friday afternoon. This could promote some longer lasting storms. There are still some questions on coverage due to how dry the atmosphere. There is also the potential for these to be dry or nearly dry thunderstorms.

Friday night the low continues to approach the area and it is possible the thunderstorms will continue to overnight. As the low gets closer the shear diminishes. Saturday the low moves quickly out of the area on some models so it unclear how many thunderstorms will linger Saturday afternoon. Confidence is high that we will see much cooler temperatures on Saturday with highs only in the 60s or low 70s.

Sunday into early next week models are in decent agreement that a trough will remain over the west coast. Temperatures will remain on the cool side and there may be some occasional showers around. MKK

AVIATION. LIFR Conditions were firmly positioned along the North Coast today . no doubt having somewhat of an impact at CEC and ACV terminals. Although the marine clouds were stubborn, the stratus depth was not super deep. An early morning Pirep from ACV reported tops at 1500 feet. Above the low clouds, was a fairly thick cirrus shield which may have hindered the burning off of the lower clouds sooner. At 1 PM, a 200 ft Cig was entrenched at ACV, while CEC had scattered within the half hour only to briefly return later. NWS Eureka area also experience widespread BINOVC. Therefore, expect to still see some late afternoon clearing at ACV with the anticipation of the stratus increasing in the early evening along the North Coast reach. Inland areas will remain VFR and dry. /TA

MARINE. The northerly winds and steep seas have diminished slightly as expected today and these are expected to remain lower overnight. So have pushed back the start time of the SCA in the northern outer waters. The entire SCA package will likely need to be extended through Friday as the pressure gradient remains tight and expands locally in fetch. Friday winds and seas will diminish as an area of low approaches the area and may become briefly southerly. Next week northerly winds and seas will start to pick back up early next week to 15 to 25 kt. MKK
