area forecast discussion
national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
243 am pdt Thu mar 21 2019
Synopsis Low pressure will remain over the area today with
continued showery weather. Brief high pressure will build tonight
and Friday for a dry period then another weather disturbance will
move across northern california on Saturday for another threat of
precipitation. High pressure with dry weather rebuilds for the
late weekend through Monday.
Discussion Negatively tilted trough axis remains over the
forecast area this morning and radar continues to show several
patches of showers over both the san joaquin valley and sierra
foothills. Meanwhile moving ashore on the central coast another
area of rain and embedded heavier showers makes its way to the
east ahead of of a small but active vorticity center now just
approaching the san simeon area. This feature will continue to
move east this morning and spread its precipitation across san
luis obispo and then kern counties through the morning hours.
Latest high resolution forecast models indicate additional showers
will develop along the sierra through the morning and continue
into the afternoon as the incoming weather system pushes east
across south central california. Enough instability remains for
the showers to develop however thunderstorm potential for today
seems limited and SPC (storm prediction center) shows thunderstorm
threat well to the east of the central california interior today.
By later this afternoon and evening models push the low to the
east of the area and end any precipitation threat. Short wave
ridging then moves over the area Friday with dry weather before
the next weather system out near 130w moves across mainly northern|
california on Saturday. Models do bring a weak frontal band across
the area Saturday morning but with the low and main energy to the
north, precipitation will be light and short lived from about
fresno northward. More ridging is then forecast to move across the
area Sunday and Monday with the next more potent pacific system
remaining well to the northwest of the region out near 42n 140w
through Monday as it pushes a rain band into northwest california.
On Tuesday and Tuesday night both GFS and ECMWF models rotate
another impulse of energy and precipitation band into central
california and then move the parent low toward the washington
coast on Wednesday. The pattern still looks active however the
storm track is lifting more northward as late march approaches.
Windy conditions after 21z today over kern county mountain local
gusts reaching 35 knots over the mountain peaks. Areas of mountain
obscuring ifr will continue across the southern sierra nevada and
tehachapi mountains until 10z Friday. Local MVFR conditions in low
clouds and showers in the san joaquin valley and southern sierra
foothills. OtherwiseVFR conditions will prevail elsewhere across
the central ca interior the next 24 hours.

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.
