Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
225 PM PDT WED AUG 24 2016



.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather pattern with near to slightly below normal temperatures
for the rest of the week.

&&

.SHORT TERM DISCUSSION (Today through Saturday)...
The onshore pressure gradient remains strong enough for a
moderate Delta Breeze to keep the Delta-influenced area cool. The
marine layer has lowered a few hundred feet to about 1400-1500 ft,
but still expect the stratus back into Vallejo and Benecia for
the next couple of days with the breeze perhaps decreasing over
the weekend as high pressure begins to build-in from the south.

&&
.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Sunday THROUGH Wednesday)
Stable southwest, straight-line flow Sunday and Monday. Models
suppress upper high to south as upper troughing moves through the
PacNW Tuesday and Wednesday. All solutions have limited available
moisture and forecast looks dry through the period. Near to
slightly below normal temperatures expected in extended. JClapp

&&

.AVIATION...
NW flow aloft with trough axis over the Great Basin. Marine layer
about 1400-1600 ft at Ft. Ord and Bodega Bay. MVFR/IFR stratus
still likely to return to Vallejo/Benecia tonight. Local SW SFC
wind gusts 30 kts in Delta again 00z-13z. JClapp


&&

.STO Watches/Warnings/Advisories...
None.
