215 PM PST Tue Jan 22 2019


.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather with locally breezy northerly winds expected through
the week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Upper high will continue to build over NorCal this week with dry
and warmer weather. Pressure gradient is relaxing and will allow
north winds to decrease this evening with light winds overnight.
As a result patchy fog will be possible srn Sac/lower San Joaquin
valleys.

Weak disturbances will drop south along the eastern portion of
the upper ridge through the week and cause periodic increases in
north winds. The Breeziest day looks to be Wed Night/Thursday.
These northerly breezes will likely diminish the early morning fog
threat much of the week.

&&

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday)

Ridging will lead to quiet weather for the extended part of the
forecast. Warmer than normal temperatures are forecast each
afternoon, with highs for the valley making it into the 60s while
the upper 40s and low 50s will be observed at higher elevations.
Low temperatures will generally be around climatological normals.

&&

.AVIATION...

High pressure will lead to VFR conditions over the next 24 hours.

&&

.STO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
None.
