227 am pst Sat feb 23 2019

Synopsis
Dry weather with gradual warming expected this weekend. High
temperatures next week should be near normal for this time of
year. A storm system will likely impact central california during
the middle of next week.

Discussion
A couple of locations in the san joaquin valley, such as atwater
and lemoore, are at the freezing mark. Temperatures will continue
to fall early this morning and this list will expand to include
several locations in the san joaquin valley below the freezing
mark. Outside of major urban areas, sub-freezing temperatures are
likely for a period of two to four hours. As a result, a freeze
warning is in effect for the san joaquin valley until 9 am pst
this morning.

A weak ridge of high pressure will pass eastward across the golden
state today. Zonal flow aloft will set up tonight and Sunday. An
upper-level atmospheric impulse will get caught in the zonal flow
and progress eastward toward the coast of the pacific northwest
Sunday night. This atmospheric impulse will move eastward through
oregon and northern california Monday and Monday night. As a
result, meaningful precipitation chances should remain north of
fresno county Monday and Monday night. An area of low pressure
aloft will weaken into a trough of low pressure Tuesday as it
approaches the northern coast of california. The upper-level
trough of low pressure will move eastward across northern
california Tuesday night and Wednesday. A winter storm watch may
be required for the sierra nevada from yosemite to kings canyon
for at least Tuesday night and Wednesday. Little to no
precipitation is expected in kern county, but precipitation
amounts of around one quarter of an inch are possible in various
locations throughout merced county.

Zonal flow aloft will remain established Wednesday night through
Thursday night. A stronger storm system will progress eastward
through the eastern pacific Friday. This storm system may be
responsible for valley rain and mountain snow next weekend.

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

Air quality issues
None.

Certainty
The level of certainty for days 1 and 2 is high.

The level of certainty for days 3 through 7 is medium.

Certainty levels include low, medium, and high. Please visit

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.
