Update Updated air quality issues.

Synopsis
A weak disturbance will mainly bring high clouds to central
california tonight and Monday. Otherwise, a ridge of high pressure
builds over the region through mid week. This will result in dry
conditions and warming temperatures. In fact, temperatures will be
above normal most of the upcoming week.

Discussion
The first focus in the short term weather will be the high clouds
streaming over california from the pacific ocean. Trajectories
take this mid upper level moisture over california tonight into
early Monday. Thinking is at least broken high clouds until Monday
afternoon. This cloud cover should limit fog formation across the
san joaquin valley later tonight. Cannot rule out some patchy fog,
so will include that in the forecast. After tonight, it becomes
even harder for persistent fog formation with rising overnight
temperatures expected across the valley.

Otherwise, a mid to upper level ridge dominates southern and
central california through the thanksgiving holiday. Models are in
good agreement that this ridge will drive any storm systems to the
north of the forecast area. Heights build through mid late week to
keep even most of the central and southern sierra nevada mountains
dry. One more thing with this pattern... Any cold air or fronts
will remain well north of the area into the extended forecast
period.

Therefore, going dry with temperatures above normal from Tuesday
through Friday, possibly into Saturday of the holiday weekend.

It looks like a slight change in store later next weekend, but
plenty of time to determine. In the meantime, forecast confidence
for central california will remain high.

Aviation
Areas of ifr in fog across the san joaquin valley until 18z Sunday.

Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail across the central ca
interior during the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues
On Monday november 20 2017... Fireplace wood stove burning status
is: no burning unless registered in kern and kings counties.

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.
