Aviation Forecasts Discussions (AFD) INFO

(EXTRACTED FROM FXUS66 KMTR 241154)


    as of 3:54 AM PST Saturday for 12Z Saturday TAFs. VFR
    conditions are expected through early/mid morning, but increasing
    moisture around 2,000-5,000 ft AGL through the day will make the
    forecast challenging. Terminals will generally see the skies go
    from SKC to SCT, and possibly BKN. Additionally, breezy west to
    northwest winds are forecast to develop in the afternoon. Local
    in-house WRF model suggests winds between 10-20 kt for the typical
    wind-prone terminals.
    
    Vicinity of KSFO...VFR this early morning with increasing clouds
    between 2,000 and 5,000 ft around mid/late morning. There remains
    uncertainty with the coverage of the clouds and can't rule out the
    possibility of a period with MVFR ceilings. Will continue to
    monitor and amend as necessary. Light winds in the morning will
    become west to northwest around 15 to 20 kt in the afternoon with
    higher gusts possible.
    
    SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to KSFO.
    
    Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR conditions expected through mid-
    morning, then VFR/MVFR for the afternoon as increasing clouds
    arrive. Generally light offshore winds in the morning will become
    onshore in the afternoon around 10-20 kt.
