Synopsis Dry weather along with a significant warming trend is
expected today through the weekend. Little changes are expected
early next week then a cooling trend towards the end of next week
with a slight chance of some precipitation, mainly over mountains.

Discussion Water vapor satellite imagery shows the upper low
continues to pull away, now spinning over the utah arizona border.

A drier northerly flow aloft has shifted overhead and precipitation
has ended. Winds are still gusting across the kern county mountains
and desert, but are diminishing. Most gusts are below 30 mph now,
but some around 40 mph should continue around mojave for the next
few hours. Winds will pick up again this afternoon and into the
evening with gusts of 25-35 mph through and below the passes.

A positively tilted upper ridge is building in over the pacific
northwest and will expand over california this afternoon through
the weekend. This will bring a significant warming trend to the
region. High temperatures will be several degrees warmer today
with mid-upper 70s across the san joaquin valley and kern county
desert, right around climatological normal for this time of year.

Highs will climb into the lower to mid 80s on Saturday then a few
degrees warmer on Sunday will push forecast highs into the upper
80s for most of the sjv and kern co. Desert, 10-15 degrees above
normal. A few locations could very well top 90 degrees by Sunday.

Little changes are expected early next week as the models drop an
upper low south over the epac. After major disagreements the last
few runs, they are beginning to converge on a solution of shifting
the low inland late next week. A cooling trend is forecast with
temps lowering back to near normal by Friday. Slight pops are in
for the sierra and gusty winds in the kern co. Mountains desert.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail across the central ca interior during
the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
