Synopsis Dry weather will continue through at least Friday
with mostly clear skies, light winds and slightly warmer than
normal afternoon temperatures. The nights will be relatively
cool through the period.
Discussion Central california is going to remain situated
between an upper level low over arizona and a high pressure ridge
near the pacific northwest coast for the next 72 hours. Under a
prevailing offshore flow, clear, chilly nights and mostly sunny,
warm days will continue through Friday.
During the early part of this weekend, the closed low is forecast
to retrograde into southern california while the high pressure
ridge builds inland over the pacific northwest and re-establishes
a rex block along the west coast. Moisture associated with the
closed low will likely move back over southern california where it
could bring a return of wet weather by Saturday night or Sunday.
Although the deepest moisture from this system appears as though
it will remain south of our cwa, this low will be close enough to
bring a considerable amount of cloudiness into kern county this
weekend. If precip does occur in kern county this weekend, it|
will primarily be in the mountains and desert and amounts will
be very light. We've added slight chance pops to this region
accordingly in the Saturday night through Sunday night period.
Otherwise, the rex block will break down later this weekend as the
closed low over southern california opens up into a weak upper
level trough and the pacific northwest ridge axis elongates
through the rockies into texas. Ultimately this will mean
temperatures will trend seasonably cooler by early next week. In
the short term, however, we'll enjoy some of the finest weather
autumn can bring!
Vfr conditions will prevail at mce, mer, fat, vis, and bfl this
afternoon through at least Wednesday morning.

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.
