High pressure will continue to bring above normal temperatures
through midweek. Dry conditions will prevail though there is a
slight chance of a few showers and thunderstorms along the sierra
crest Tuesday through the end of the week.
A weak shortwave trough is moving over the pacific northwest
today. The only effect will be to bring a few high clouds across
the region this afternoon and evening. Temperatures this afternoon
are running 2 to 5 degrees from 24 hours ago, resulting in highs
around 10-15 degrees above climatological norms for late april.
Temperatures are expected to edge up another degree or two Monday
then little changes in temperatures are expected through midweek
as an upper low drops down offshore of the west coast and an
upper ridge remains over the western conus. Slight chance pops
remain over the sierra crest beginning Tuesday as isolated showers
and thunderstorms could develop with daytime heating.
A fair amount of uncertainty remains for the end of the week into|
the weekend regarding the track of the offshore low. Models
continue to have slightly different solutions from run to run,
with the ECMWF still being the farthest west and north, and the
gfs being a bit farther south and more progressive. All the models
are trying to bring the low center inland somewhere between
oregon and central california sometime between Friday night and
Saturday afternoon. At this point, it does not look like it has a
lot of moisture, so any chance of precipitation remains low. The
position as it comes inland, however, will have an impact on how
much cooling we get and how soon the cooling occurs. Made very
little change to the forecast due to this uncertainty.
Vfr conditions will prevail across the central ca interior during
the next 24 hours.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
