Temperatures will warm to several degrees above normal through
midweek as high pressure builds over the region. By this weekend,
temperatures will drop below normal as a low pressure system
moves into the region. No rain is forecast through the period.
Temperatures lowered a bit yesterday but still not quite down to
seasonable levels for the beginning of fall. Now high pressure is
progged to build into the west coast behind the exiting low
pressure trough and our temperatures will warm several degrees
through the middle of the week. Highs Thursday are expected to be
as much as 5-10 degrees above normal.
By Friday a low pressure center lifting out of the pacific toward
the northwest states will begin to displace the high pressure
ridge and will start a cooling trend for our area. The upper low
will continue to track inland to the northeast through the
weekend, bringing increased onshore flow to our area along with
lowering heights and thicknesses. This will lower temperatures
significantly during the weekend, with highs dropping to around
3-6 degrees below climo. The passing system will also bring
increased gusty winds Friday and Saturday. Models keep the
precipitation associated with this system to the north of our
area, so our dry forecast continues through the weekend.|
The start of the work week next week will be interesting as models
drop a low pressure system out of the northeast pacific. There are
model differences in the evolution and trajectory of this system.
The operational ecm tracks the low more inland and across ca by
Monday whereas the GFS drops the low southward off the coast while
at the same time tracking a tropical system northward across
southern ca. Each scenario keeps us cooler than normal, and could
bring a possibility of precipitation. The gfs's tropical system
scenario, would bring precip chances to our southern areas by
Monday, while the ecm pacific low passage would spread precip in
from the north. Additional model runs will bring more certainty in
the extended forecast regarding the possibility of our first
precipitation event of the season.
Vfr conditions can be expected throughout the central ca interior
for at least the next 24 hours.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
