Dry weather will prevail with mostly sunny skies through the
upcoming week. A gradual warming trend will bring temperatures
from a few degrees below normal today to above normal by midweek.
An amplified pattern continues with a long wave trough over the
great basin and an eastern pacific ridge nosing in over western
canada. A cool northerly flow persists over california but the
airmass is modifying each day with highs running up 2-6 degrees
above yesterday. The ridge will gradually build inland allowing
the warming trend to continue this week. Temperatures will climb
back to near normal Tuesday then nudge a few degrees above normal
Wednesday through the end of the week.
Dry conditions are expected through the upcoming week with just a
few clouds at times. The models do show a short wave dropping down
over the lower colorado river valley Tuesday night and Wednesday,|
but moisture is progged to stay to the east of the sierra.
A north to northeasterly off shore flow will continue through the
week. This will bring some breezy to locally gusty conditions to
the mountains and desert. Winds will be strongest during the late
night and morning periods for the next few days but will remain
below advisory level.
Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the central california
interior during the next 24 hours.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
