national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
333 am pst Fri nov 16 2018
Dry weather and near normal temperatures will continue through
the beginning of next week. Winds will remain light except for
breezy to gusty conditions near and through pass areas. Areas of
smoke and haze will continue for the san joaquin valley through
Another quiet weather night across the central california interior
as high pressure aloft remains in control. Goes-17 satellite data
shows a band of high clouds crossing over the central coast that
should be on the decrease as we move through the day. Visibilities
are reduced across the san joaquin valley due to haze and smoke.
The san joaquin valley air pollution control district continues an
air quality ALERT due to smoke from wildfires. After another chilly
start to the day, temperatures will be similar to yesterday with
highs generally a few degrees above normal for mid november.
No major changes are expected through the weekend though the upper
ridge axis does shift east over the coast ahead of an upper low.
This low is progged to pass over southern california and northern
baja ca early next week with just some mid high clouds affecting
the district. Temperatures will change little over the weekend
then nudge slightly lower early next week while still remaining a
few degrees above normal.
The models are beginning to come into a little better agreement
regarding a pattern change for later next week. The first in what
could be a series of disturbances may bring precipitation to parts|
of the region as early as next Wednesday. But there's still a fair
amount of uncertainty regarding timing and amounts. This pattern
change would also bring in a cooler air mass with highs dropping
down to below normal for a change. Air quality would improve as
well along with increased onshore winds.
Smoke and haze will continue to create areas of MVFR visibilities in
the san joaquin valley and adjacent foothills through at least the
next 24 hours, mainly north of kern county. During the overnight
hours, expect occasional patches of ifr visibilities occurring from
fresno county northward and in the vicinity of the wildfires.VFR
conditions will otherwise prevail across the central california
interior through at least the next 24 hours.

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.
