Synopsis High pressure will rebuild over the area tonight and
will keep mild temperatures and dry conditions across the region
through Wednesday night aside from persistent low clouds and fog
in the san joaquin valley. A low pressure system will bring bring
rain and mountain snow to the region Thursday afternoon through
Friday night. Another storm will move through the area early next
week.

Discussion Dense fog which formed overnight persisted over the
san joaquin valley until late morning once again as the storm
that was expected to impact our area today fizzled out and became
a no show. Some shortwave energy streaming through our area as
noted from mid level moisture on satellite imagery h

for enough lift for the fog to lift into a low stratus deck. The
main forecast problem for the short term today is will the stratus
deck break out like it did yday or persist into the evening. If
the stratus deck breaks up, areas of dense fog will likely reform
over the san joaquin valley tonight. However, if the stratus deck
persists, then fog will likely not form. Am therefore deferring
any issuance of a fog related highlight for the valley for tonight
and Wednesday to later shifts.

Wrf indicating upper ridging will remain over central ca through
Wednesday night. This will maintain dry weather and mild

temperatures across our area except for the fog and low clouds
which are often problematic in the san joaquin valley this time
of the year when high pressure is prevailing. The ridge is progged
to break down on Thursday as a cold upper trough drops out of the
guff of ak. This system will push southward through central ca on
Thursday night and Friday and provide our area with increased
moisture, precipitation and cooler temperatures.

The best potential for significant precipitation with this system
will be over the southern sierra nevada which are progged to pick
up between a half an inch to an inch of liquid precipitation
north of kings canyon and a quarter to half an inch south of
kings canyon. Snow levels will be above 8000 feet at the onset of
precipitation late Thursday lowering to 3000 to 4000 feet by late
Friday in the cooler post-frontal airmass. A few inches of snow
will be possible over the major passes in the kern county
mountains on Friday and Friday night which could adversely impact
travel. The san joaquin valley will be rain shadowed until the
cold frontal passage on Friday and most locations will receive a
quarter inch or less of rainfall.

Medium range models are in fairly good agreement with shortwave
ridging prevailing over central ca Saturday through early Sunday
then another upper low will bring chances of precipitation to our
area on Sunday night and Monday. Three is still some uncertainty
on how strong this system will be and how much rainfall it will
produce over our area. Model guidance is suggesting another
system will following during the middle of next week, but there
is uncertainty regarding the timing and placement of this system.

Aviation Areas of MVFR conditions in clouds and mist haze will
persist in the san joaquin valley with new areas of ifr and lifr
after 06z. Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail across the
central ca interior during the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues
On Wednesday january 17 2018... Unhealthy for sensitive groups in

and tulare counties.

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.
