    As of 11:05 AM Sunday... For the 18Z TAFs. Visible
    satellite shows stratus burn off in the last hour, clearing KLVK,
    KSJC, and KAPC. KSTS, KSFO, and KOAK will be next to clear to VFR
    conditions within the hour. Stratus will likely linger longer at
    KMRY and KSNS, but VFR expected after 20z down by the Monterey
    Bay. VFR expected through the evening with light to moderate
    (generally less than 15 kts) onshore flow kicking in this
    afternoon. Stratus will return tonight around 06z for coastal
    terminals and later for more inland terminals, bringing MVFR cigs
    that will persist through Monday morning.
    Vicinity of SFO... Satellite imagery shows clearing ongoing, so
    VFR conditions expected after 19z. Light SW winds could last
    through 20-21z early this afternoon, then switching to W/NW.
    Onshore winds around 10 to 15 kts through the evening. Stratus
    returns tonight around 06z for KOAK and later for KSFO (~09z).
    Clearing will occur by 18z Monday morning.
    KSFO Bridge Approach... Similar to SFO.
    Monterey Bay... MVFR conditions continue through 19-20z this
    morning. VFR and onshore winds will prevail this afternoon through
    evening. Stratus returns tonight between 05z and 07z, bringing
    borderline MVFR/IFR cigs through 18-19z Monday morning.
