332 am pdt Sun aug 19 2018
Synopsis High pressure will weaken and shift east early this
week as a low pressure center moves through the pacific northwest
on Monday and Tuesday. This will result in increased onshore flow
and a cooling trend across the area. Temperatures will remain
above seasonal normals however, and dry conditions will prevail
across the area this week.
Discussion Upper level high pressure ridge centered over
cencal this morning will provide our area with another hot day
across the san joaquin valley, southern sierra foothills and kern
county deserts; however, high temperatures might be a degree or
two below Saturday in the san joaquin valley due to an increased
onshore gradient which has allowed for a shallow marine intrusion
into the valley overnight.
Sref indicating that the high will break down and shift east as a
low pressure center pushes through the pac NW on Monday and
Tuesday resulting in increased onshore flow over cencal. This will
allow for a noticable cooling trend to take place across our area
and highs in the valley and foothills will be below the century
mark at most locations by Tuesday.
The medium range models and their ensemble means are in fairly|
good agreement with the low ejecting east into the intermountain
west region by midweek leaving a baggy trough situated off the
western CONUS coast. Interaction between this feature and a
building high over texas will result in a dry southwest flow
prevailing over our area for the remainder of the forecast period.
Little change in diurnal temperatures is expected while dry
conditions prevail under mainly clear skies from Wednesday
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

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.
