Update Updated air quality issues.

Synopsis
High pressure will build in over the great basin over the next
several days with offshore flow and dry conditions over central
california. Continued above normal afternoon highs and cool
mornings through Tuesday. A strong cold front will push across the
region on Wednesday with gusty winds. Cold temperatures and
continued dry conditions are expected Thursday through next
weekend.

Discussion
Very impressive winds across the west side of the san joaquin
valley today with gusts up to 55 mph at times. Multiple spotter
reports of blowing dust and reduced visibilities near los banos. A
lot of fields are in fallow right now and the strong winds are
creating some localized visibility problems. The winds are
expected to weaken this evening in the sjv but start to increase
across the sierra as a weak mono event tries to set up with
downsloping winds through the sierra and into the higher reaches
of the sierra foothills. Upper ridge will build in over the area
with cooler temperatures in the mornings and near or above normal
highs in the afternoon.

With dry air moving into the region, fog development will be
limited tonight and towards daybreak due to residual mixing and
limited low level moisture. Temperatures will gradually modify
over the next few days as the new airmass that just came in will
remain in place through Tuesday. Areas of morning frost in the
valley with temperatures dropping below freezing each day is
expected. Some isolated fog development is possible in the usual
spots near hanford, selma and kerman, but nothing widespread at
this time is in the forecast.

The front that is forecast to move across the region Wednesday
will usher in a new cold airmass. Gusty winds along the west side
of the sjv are once again possible on Wednesday. Cold morning low
temps will approach the mid 20s in the sjv by Friday morning and
we will monitor for a potential high impact freeze event. The
good news is, it will not be a prolonged cold event, but more a
cold snap as temperatures will begin to modify by the weekend. The
weekend looks to be turning out nice next week as we once again
rise above normal for afternoon highs with cool crisp mornings.

Aviation
Local wind gusts to 35 knots or higher are still possible on the
west side of the san joaquin valley until 02z Sunday. Strong
northeast winds of 35 knots or greater will continue along the
sierra crest through 00z Monday. Otherwise,VFR conditions will
prevail across the central california interior during 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.
