Synopsis Well above normal temperatures again today then
slight cooling this weekend. Thunderstorms will be possible over
the sierra nevada each afternoon and evening through the weekend.
Dry conditions and further cooling early next week.
Discussion More record breaking high temperatures occurred on
Thursday as strong high pressure aloft remains in control. Though
some areas may be a couple of degrees lower today, temperatures at
or above 105 will be widespread again across the lower elevations.
The excessive heat warning remains in effect today.
Some minor cooling is forecast for the sj valley, foothills, and
kern county mountain valleys this weekend. While this may end the
run of very dangerous heat for these areas, MAX temperatures will
remain hot and hazardous. A heat advisory has been issued across
the sj valley, foothills, and kern county mountain valleys for
Saturday and Sunday. People should continue to avoid outdoor
activities, especially during the heat of the day. If you are
outside, wear light colored, loose fitting clothing if possible.
Take breaks, seek shade, and stay hydrated. Children and the
elderly are especially susceptible to the heat. Don't forget to
provide water and shelter for pets and livestock too.
Also, excessive snow melt will continue with rivers and streams
running high and fast. The rivers may look inviting during the
heat, but the cold and fast moving waters are extremely dangerous.|
The desert in kern county will see little if any change in
temperatures this weekend. Highs will continue to climb to
dangerous levels of 106 to 113. Therefore, the excessive heat
warning remains in effect for the desert through Sunday.
An upper trough will move over northern california on Monday for
some more notable cooling. Highs by Tuesday are forecast to drop
below the century mark, but still a few degrees above late june
normals. Little change is expected next Wednesday through Friday.
A few afternoon and early evening thunderstorms remain possible
each day through Sunday. The best chances will be from yosemite
np south to around mount whitney.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the higher elevations of
the southern sierra nevada this afternoon and evening. Otherwise,
vfr conditions will prevail across the central ca interior during
the next 24 hours.

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.
