Saturday Morning Clouds

August 13, 2011

I hate forecasting the depth/extent of the marine layer.  A good example is the 10am visible satellite picture…need I say more this morning???

For the past 36 hours models had been backing off on the depth of the layer for this morning, so we had pulled the majority of morning clouds out of today’s forecast.  But NO, I wake up to drizzle and solid cloud cover, plus you can see the layer extends up past 3,000′!

Enjoy the slow clearing this afternoon…
