    as of 10:33 AM PDT Thursday...For 18z tafs. Stratus
    has mainly dissipated over land, but remains along the San Mateo
    coast and northward. Still seeing clearing off the coast across
    the southern half of the region. This may lead to another case of
    patchy IFR cigs for the southern taf sites tonight. For today, VFR
    conditions to prevail through tonight before stratus is forecast
    to return. The marine layer is not expected to be as deep tonight
    translating to less inland penetration of low clouds. Increasing
    onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt with locally higher gusts
    at KSFO.
    
    HRRR Vertically Integrated Smoke Model indicates smoke over the
    area will be light today.
    
    Vicinity of KSFO...VFR through tonight before MVFR/IFR cigs are
    forecast to return. Westerly winds gusting to 25 kt after 20Z-21Z.
    
    SFO Bridge Approach...Similar to KSFO.
    
    Monterey Bay Terminals...VFR through this evening. Should this
    clearing offshore remain present this afternoon and evening we
    could see another night of patchy IFR cigs along the Peninsula.
    Generally light winds through the period.
