Synopsis
Dry and hotter than normal conditions will continue through the
weekend as high pressure strengthens over the region. A low
pressure system will impact central california early next week,
lowering temperatures a few degrees to near normal but remaining
dry through the week.

Discussion
Models drift the center of a strong upper ridge northwestward
over southern and central california during the next couple of
days, which will bring increasing temperatures and suppressed
mountain convection through the weekend. The higher MAX temps
combined with overnight lows a bit above normal will nudge heat
risk values up today and Sunday. Much of the sj valley and lower
foothill areas will experience moderate risk of heat related
illnesses for those sensitive to heat. Desert locales will see
moderate to high risk for much of the population without effective
cooling and adequate hydration. Persons experiencing these
conditions need to take precautions against the heat, including
drinking plenty of water.

Model solutions remain similar into next week as a trough is
progged to slide into the pac NW and northern ca, weakening and
displacing the ridge over our area. This will bring increased
onshore flow with some gusty winds over the mountains and through
the passes. Some marine air should spill into the sj valley aiding
the synoptic cooling that will result from the approaching
trough, especially in our northern areas. By Tuesday, high
temperatures should be down to around seasonal averages.

With a troughy pattern to our northwest and the ridge remaining
centered to our southeast, we should not experience significant
warming during next week, with temps hovering just a bit above
climo. Best moisture is progged to remain to our east and south,
keeping our forecast dry through the period.

Aviation
Areas of MVFR visibility in smoke and haze can be expected in the
foothills and higher elevations of the southern sierra nevada north
of kings canyon. Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail across the
central ca interior during 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.
