Temperatures will be around seasonal averages through Wednesday,
then back above normal for the remainder of the week. A moist
southerly flow will bring a chance of thunderstorms to the
mountains and kern desert through Tuesday, with just a few
lingering storms possible over the sierra crest Wednesday.
A few thunderstorms have developed over the sierra nevada crest
Sunday afternoon as temperatures climbed back into the triple
digits across the san joaquin valley. An area of convection
is moving northward from mono county into western nevada early
this morning. Some of the clouds associated with this band of
convection have moved into the sierra nevada from fresno county
northward and an isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible near
yosemite early this morning. This band will continue to move
north and out of the region this morning, but additional moisture
will move into the region today.
The moisture is moving northward in the southerly flow between a
weak shortwave trough along the northern california coast and the
ridge over the southwest us. This will increase thunderstorm
chances over the sierra as well as the kern county mountain and
desert areas today and Tuesday. As the weak trough moves across
northern ca, it will help to bring a slight decrease in
temperatures during the next couple of days, bringing temperatures
back to near normal for late july.
The weak upper low over northern california will move northeast
and weaken further on Wednesday, allowing the ridge to begin|
expanding westward again. This will return the flow to more
southwesterly and push moisture farther east. Thus, by Wednesday
there should be just a slight chance for lingering storms near the
For the latter part of the week into the weekend, the ridge will
be in control with temperatures trending back upward to a few
degrees above normal. Expect temperatures to be 100 to 104 degrees
in the san joaquin valley Thursday through Sunday. There are some
model indications that moisture will also edge westward again,
bringing at least a slight chance for thunderstorms back to the
high sierra by next Sunday and Monday.
Areas of MVFR visibilities in smoke from area wildfires. Isolated to
scattered thunderstorms developing this afternoon after 19z Monday
over the sierra nevada and kern county mountains and desert.
Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail across 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.
