Temperatures will begin trending cooler this week along with dry
conditions. Coastal pass and kern county mountain passes and
desert areas could see breezy to gusty winds the next several
Satellite loops show a weak upper low near 40n 128w lifting
northeast toward the pacific northwest this morning. This incoming
trough is weakening and displacing the ridge that extends
northward across southern california. Fort ord profiler shows
significant elevating of the marine layer to around 3000 ft as the
trough approaches. A break in our heatwave is underway as a result
of the approaching trough.
Current 24 hr temperature trends across our area are running
mostly down, as much as 4-8 degrees. Thanks to the passing low
pressure system and an influx of some of that cooler marine air,
we will see temperatures down several degrees today and lowering
further to around climo or even slightly below by Tuesday.
The general synoptic pattern is progged to persist through the
the week, with additional shortwave energy tracking across the
top of the ridge and keeping temperatures generally within a few|
degrees of normal. Models remain in reasonable agreement through
the week and show a slightly deeper trough dropping through the
region during the weekend. So,for the upcoming week and weekend,
we can look forward to temperatures as much as 15 to 20 degrees
lower than those we've been experiencing during this heatwave.
There are no significant chances for precipitation throughout the
period as moisture is limited.
Winds will be occasionally gusty with the passing systems,
especially through and below mountain passes. Waterways will
continue to run cold, deep, fast and dangerous as they continue
to be fed by melting snow.
Vfr conditions will prevail across the central ca 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.
