Synopsis
Dry weather will continue this week with temperatures climbing to
a few degrees above normal. Temperatures will lower back to near
normal this weekend with a cooler onshore flow and increased winds.

Discussion
Northerly flow aloft continues over california with an upper ridge
over the eastern pacific and a long wave trough over the western
interior. The ridge will slowly build inland to the north through
Wednesday while an upper low forms over the lower colorado river
valley. This will continue the warming trend of the last few days.

High temperatures are forecast to be a few degrees above normal
by Wednesday then little changes through the end of the work week.

There is good model agreement with an upper trough moving over the
pacific northwest on Saturday. But the models then diverge Sunday
with the ECMWF tracking the trough east over the northern rockies,
while the GFS digs it south over the great basin. For now, modest
cooling is forecast with temperatures back down near normal this
weekend. The gem favors the ecm, but then drops another trough
over california early next week. The forecast remains dry but the
gem solution suggests precipitation by next Monday as a cold front
moves in.

An offshore surface pressure gradient continues with some breezy
conditions over the mountains. An upper jet diving down from the
north will provide some upper level support. This could produce
an increase in winds with gusty northeast winds over the ridges
and through drainages into the foothills today through Wednesday
morning. The gradient relaxes later this week then turns onshore
Saturday with gusty westerly winds through and below the passes.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the central california
interior during the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues
None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
