national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
352 am pst Wed jan 23 2019

Synopsis
High pressure along the west coast will bring dry weather a day
to day warming trend through the weekend. Areas of night and
morning fog will occur in the san joaquin valley through the
period.

Discussion
Central california is entering a quiet weather pattern regime as
a ridge of high pressure overtakes the region. As the axis of the
high pressure ridge shifts on to the west coast, the potential for
overnight and early morning fog will become more likely. The
challenge will be in the amount of moisture still lingering in the
atmosphere each day as drying occurs over the san joaquin valley.

At the moment, the area around the intersection of highways 43
and 198 seem to favor the better fog growth potential. A dense fog
advisory will remain in effect across the san joaquin valley this
morning as low visibility in fog will become a problem for area
commuters around the time of day-break. Otherwise, the ridge of
high pressure will dominate the region for much of the period as
weather rides overhead from the pacific northwest through the
great basin and eastward on.

While models show low uncertainty in the short-term prognosis of
developing a ridge pattern over the west, the timing a strength of
each piece of energy traveling through the ridge pattern will be
the challenge for the forecast period. Currently, the first piece
of energy seems weak and more of an inside sliders during its
passage on Thursday. A few clouds and possible afternoon mountain
breeze may come of the disturbance before it exits on Thursday
night. Another piece of energy on Friday may only increase the
winds Friday as the same inside-slider trajectory will be taken
during the seconds disturbance passage. Therefore, a lack of
precipitation will be seen this week as the ridge of high pressure
holds its position along the west coast this week.

The ridge will remain in place through the weekend as uncertainty
grows going into the extended periods. Models show yet another
disturbance entering the region as an inside-slider around late
Monday into Tuesday. While winds and clouds seem possible,
precipitation still seems unlikely going into next week.

Therefore, may see at least 5 to 7 days of dry conditions across
the region. Again, while fog has a good chance of developing in
the short-term, the lack of moisture in the extended and
ocassional winds may not allow the potential for fog extend into
next week.

Aviation
Widespread MVFR with areas of ifr lifr in mist fog in the san
joaquin valley through 18z wed, then developing again after 06z thu.

Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail over the central ca interior
during 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.
