MODELS SHOW HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER CALIFORNIA TODAY INTO THIS

SUNNY SKIES. ALONG THE COAST THE TEMPERATURES WILL BE SEASONABLE
WITH OVERNIGHT CLOUDS GRADUALLY INCREASING THIS WEEKEND. MODELS
STILL SHOW A CUT-OFF LOW FORMING TO OUR SOUTHWEST LATE THIS WEEK
INTO THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER, THE STRENGTH AND LOCATION REMAINS AN
ISSUE. KEPT POPS LOW FOR THE HIGHEST TERRAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS
OUT OF THIS FORECAST.

.AVIATION...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE AREA WILL ALLOW FOR
CLEARING SKIES INLAND AND MIDDAY GUSTY WINDS. UKI WILL REMAIN VFR
THROUGH THE DAY.

WITH HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN, COASTAL AREAS WILL EXPERIENCE
INCREASING NORTHERLY WINDS THROUGH THE DAY AND A RETURN OF LOW
CLOUDS AND FOG TONIGHT. THEREFORE LOOK FOR VFR TODAY ALONG THE
COAST BECOMING LIFR THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT. BFG

GUSTS TO 35 KT DEVELOPING LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND REMAINING
