Synopsis
A change in the weather pattern across the west coast will allow
for a cooling trend in temperatures for the next few days. By
mid-week, the high pressure ridge will rebuild which will
result in another period of above normal temperatures. Dry weather
will continue across the area through next week.

Discussion
Upper level disturbance and associated cold front expected to
cross the region this Sunday and usher in another cooling trend
and locally breezy conditions. While the main energy of the
disturbance will remain over the pacific northwest and extreme
northern california, enough energy will sweep through the district
to lower temperatures and increase the surface pressure gradient
from ksfo to klas. Yet, both conditions will be temporary as a
blocking high pattern will quickly push into the region before
midweek. 24 hour change in temperature across the region has shown
minimal change. However, models show the disturbance sweeping
through california today with cooling expected later in the day.

In addition, local strong winds will be confined to the higher
terrain of the sierra nevada and the kern county mountains and
deserts. As mentioned, brief disturbance will be replaced by a
rex blocking high pattern that may exist over the west coast for
much of the forecast period.

After the passage of the next disturbance, models continue to show
higher confidence in building a rex blocking high ridge pattern
over the west toward the middle of the week. While the next ridge
is a bit stronger, the ridge axis will remain offshore as the west
coast only feels a portion of the heat. Even as models develop a
rex blocking pattern toward the middle of the week, the west coast
will be far enough from the ridge axis to feel some cooler air
coming down over the blocking pattern. Will follow a consensus of
the gfs ECMWF nogaps models that indicate the development of the
rex block toward the middle of next week. While some uncertainty
exist on the possible development of the rex block, will continue
to opt for the three model solution and expect the continuation
of a dry pattern over the region.

While temperatures will warm again during the latter half of the
forecast period, MAX temps may struggle to reach the century mark
due to the position of the ridge (rex) pattern. Moisture will
remain limited during the period, but, as the rex block drifts
slightly toward day seven, a southwest flow pattern may develop
for some moisture to surge into the region. Again, the moisture
will remain limited as the forecast will remain dry during the
next seven days.

Aviation
Vfr conditions can be expected throughout the central ca interior
for at least the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues
None.

Certainty
The level of certainty for days 1 and 2 is high.

The level of certainty for days 3 through 7 is medium.

Certainty levels include low... Medium... And high. Please visit

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.
