343 am pst Wed nov 22 2017

Synopsis Dry weather and above normal afternoon temperatures
can be expected across the central california interior through the
holiday weekend. Patchy fog is possible in the san joaquin valley
during the late night and morning hours each day.

Discussion Clear skies across central ca. Some patchy fog has
developed in the central valley along the san joaquin river from
livingston to firebaugh. Satellite images show an amplified ridge
extending from the baja coast north over the west coast. While a
weak offshore prevails across S ca. The strong ridge of high
pressure will provide very warm conditions across the central
california interior. Naefs model ensemble show 850mb mean
temperature over the central ca coast in the warmest percentile
of the 30 year climate period for today. Thus near record high
temperatures may be possible into thanksgiving day. Just about
anywhere in our forecast area will experience well above average
temperatures through at least Saturday. The warmest locations may
reach into the lower 80s, on both Wednesday and thanksgiving day,
especially in the central valley, lower foothills, and the kern
county desert.

A short wave will move through the pacific NW Thursday flattening
the ridge and turning the flow more west and onshore. Thus daytime
highs are expected to lower slightly on Friday and Saturday but
will still remain well above average. Although morning and
nighttime fog is possible each day through Saturday as long as the
high pressure remains, it will likely be patchy with mild
overnight lows.

A low pressure system will arrive later in the weekend and push
east of the region by Monday. Models coming into better consensus
and have been trending for a faster arrival, so a slight chance
precipitation and mountain snow could begin Sunday afternoon
towards the yosemite area. The trough digs well south over central
ca and bring a cold front and precipitation into the tehachapis by
Monday morning. The best chances for precipitation will be over
the sierra nevada towards yosemite and kings canyon.

On Sunday night into Monday, northwest flow aloft will allow low
clouds to bank up along the west northwest facing sides of the
tehachapi mountains and southern sierra nevada. So, relatively
cool weather but near seasonal levels will likely prevail for
early next week. Another ridge of high pressure arrives by next
Tuesday, but it appears not quite as strong at this time.

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.
