Update Updated air quality issues.

Synopsis
A weakening cold front will move southward this evening and bring
a slight chance of some light precipitation through Tuesday
morning in the sierra nevada and kern county mountains. A series
of dry fronts will move through the region later this week with
breezy conditions possible Wednesday and again on Friday. A strong
cold front will move into the region by Sunday evening and bring
a chance of precipitation to central california.

Discussion Satellite loops show the upper-level trough moving
over northern california at this time. The associated weakening
cold front ahead of the trough is now moving over merced county
to yosemite. Current radar data show very light returns, mainly
over kern county. A few locations have been reporting drizzle in
the san joaquin valley which remains under the persistent status
cloud deck. As the front approaches, this is likely providing
sufficient lift to cause brief drizzle from the stratus clouds.

Otherwise, any precipitation that is falling from the mid-level
cloud bands that is most likely not reaching the ground, at least
over the mountains. A slight chance for precipitation remains for
the evening and overnight hours in the sierra and later tonight
into Tuesday morning in the kern county mountains due to the
upslope flow that is expected on the back side of the upper-
level trough by that time.

A closed upper-level low will develop near the southern california
coast, or towards santa barbara, by Tuesday morning. This feature
is expected to move southward through the day ending the
possibility of precipitation. Weak ridging is expected to develop
along the central ca coast on Tuesday afternoon but will remain
centered mainly off the coast. Another upper-level low is expected
to pass over the great basin on Wednesday and could briefly
increase winds over the mountain passes in kern county and the
sierra nevada crest. Elsewhere, a dry pattern will continue
through at least Thursday. The high pressure ridge will move
inland by late Wednesday into Thursday, although this pattern
is typically more favorable for fog low cloud development over
the san joaquin valley.

By Friday and into Saturday morning another low pressure system
provides a brief opportunity for unsettled weather, at least for
light precipitation, although this feature is expected to open the
door for a stronger system behind it, or by Sunday and next
Monday. More widespread precipitation is expected to fall with
this system, and brief moderate to heavy precipitation is
possible.

Aviation
In the san joaquin valley and over the southern sierra foothills,
mainly MVFR conditions in low clouds with areas of ifr in mist.

Elsewhere, mainlyVFR conditions will prevail across the central ca
interior for the next 24 hours.

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.
