208 pm pst Wed jan 23 2019
High pressure along the u.S. West coast will bring dry weather
and a day to day warming trend through the weekend. Areas of night
and morning fog will occur in the san joaquin valley through the
Discussion The fog has dissipated in the central valley and
given way to mostly sunny skies. A few high clouds will continue
to move into the region from the northwest this afternoon. Later
this evening, northwest winds are expected to increase over
western and northern portions of our san joaquin valley
(or fresno county northward) due to an upper-level disturbance;
we are thinking this could briefly prevent fog formation in these
areas for tonight Thursday morning. Otherwise, patchy dense fog is
expected to redevelop later tonight in southern portions of the sj
valley, such as hanford, corcoran, and the 99 corridor from
around selma to delano. Short-term high resolution fog guidance
suggests little or no development; however, current surface
dewpoints are sufficiently high, even a bit warmer than tonight's
forecast low temperatures.
Otherwise, expect temperatures to warm a couple of degrees each
day through the weekend as high pressure will continue to build
over our area. Nighttime morning fog is expected until at least
the weekend, although another upper-level disturbance could
mitigate widespread dense fog development on Friday night into
Models continue to forecast a somewhat stronger upper-level|
disturbance passing over central california and the great basin
early next week, or during Monday Monday night. This feature
could be strong enough to bring increased clouds and gusty
northerly winds over the mountains and desert; however, we do not
anticipate precipitation with this system as any moisture will be
well to the east. The ridge of high pressure will rebuild along
the west coast soon afterward. Thus, generally little change in
weather is expected for the first half of next week, and
temperatures will be mild, or a few degrees above average for late
Fog and mist forming late at night and early morning in the san
joaquin valley with areas of MVFR conditions and local ifr lifr
visibility, especially towards the south sjv 08z-18z Friday.
Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail over the central ca interior
during the next 24 hours.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
