230 pm pdt Sun may 28 2017

Synopsis High pressure will continue to bring above normal
temperatures and dry weather to much of the area through Tuesday.

Isolated afternoon thunderstorms will occur each day near the
southern sierra crest. A storm system will bring much cooler
temperatures to the area on Wednesday with a chance of showers
and thunderstorms over the mountains.

Discussion High pressure is continuing to strengthen over the
western CONUS resulting in rising heights and thicknesses over
central ca. Temperatures are running 5-8 deg f above yday at this
time at most locations under mostly sunny skies. Visible imagery
is indicating some build-ups near the southern sierra crest and
with the WRF indicating capes progged to be above 1000 j kg and
li S between -4 and -2 deg c, a chance of thunderstorms will be
possible this afternoon and evening near and along the southern
sierra crest as melting snow is providing for a moisture source.

Wrf indicating the large high continuing to build inland on
memorial day which will provide for continued rises in heights
and and diurnal thicknesses as result in temperatures rising to
well above seasonal levels. Once again there will be sufficient
cape and instability for a chance of afternoon and evening
thunderstorms near and along the southern sierra crest.

The upper flow will turn onshore by Tuesday as the prevailing
ridge breaks down and moves east. This will allow for some marine
cooled air to push inland and spill into the san joaquin valley
with the most noticable cooling taking place north of fresno. Wrf
is continuing to indicate an upper trough dropping southward over
ca Tuesday night and Wednesday which will bring a noticable
cooling trend to our area and provide for a chance of mountain
showers and thunderstorms.

The medium range models are indicating the trough pushing into
the great basin by Wednesday night and shortwave ridging will
follow over our area on Thursday and Friday which will allow for
temepratures to recover to near seasonal normals by Thursday and
to above normal levels by Friday. A westerly flow will keep dry
conditions across our area for the latter portion of next week.

There is good model consensus with an upper trough pushing into
the pac NW next weekend, but the dynamics and deeper moisture with
this system are expected to remain well to the north of our area
so no precipitation is anticiapted for our area with this system.

Maximum temepratures next weekend will depend on how deep the
marine layer gets and how strong onshore p-grads become. At this
time it is still too early to tell if there will be any noticeable
cooling over our area next weekend so will keep temperatures for
next weekend close to Friday's levels for now.

Aviation Areas of MVFR and local ifr possible over the sierra
nevada crest due to mountain obscurations from isolated
thunderstorms through 04z tue. Otherwise,VFR conditions are
expected across the central ca interior during the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues None.

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.
