Synopsis
A slight chance for some mountain showers Wednesday, otherwise
dry weather and seasonable temperatures through the end of the
work week. Breezy conditions will continue through the week.

Discussion
A strong northwest flow aloft bringing some cirrus clouds across
central ca from upstream moisture with a weather system moving
onshore over the pacific nw. Area of clouds developing over the
tehachapis due to the strong wind flow and mid upper level
moisture. Winds remain breezy and gusty below the mountain passes
of the kern county mountains due to the strong flow aloft. The
flow over central ca is due to a northeast pacific ridge and the
broad upper trough in the interior west.

This general synoptic pattern is progged to continue for the next
several days, with a series of shortwave troughs riding across the
pacific ridge. The next weather system will clip our area with a
slight chance for showers over the sierra zones north of tulare
county today. QPF is limited and snow levels will remain high, so
no significant impacts from snow are anticipated. There will also
be some upslope clouds and light rain Wednesday night through
Thursday morning in the sjv facing slopes of kern county. Upper
level winds will increase again this afternoon as the short wave
moves into the great basin. Thus winds should become strong gusty
through and below mountain passes starting early this afternoon
and continue through the evening. The windy pattern will continue
Thursday as additional upper level energy follows through the
great basin maintaining the strong NW flow across ca.

Models agree on a more significant buckle in the upper jet on
Friday. Limited moisture with this trough will make precipitation
unlikely as this system passes, but it should bring our windiest
period especially for the san joaquin valley due to wind flow
becoming more north. Winds turning offshore Saturday as a surface
high builds over the interior west while the east pacific ridge
builds inland. This will bring a dry and warm trend for the
weekend.

Aviation
Areas of MVFR and local mountain obscuring ifr in low clouds and
showers in the southern sierra nevada until 06z Thursday and in the
kern county mountains after 06z Thursday. OtherwiseVFR conditions
will prevail across the central ca interior during the next 24
hours.

Air quality issues

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.
