351 pm pdt Sun jun 25 2017
A very slight chance for thunderstorms for this afternoon and
evening over the sierra crest areas. Temperatures will then begin
trending cooler this week along with dry conditions. Coastal pass
and kern county mountain passes could see breezy to gusty winds
the next several days.
A celebration seems in order with high temperatures across the
area this week returning to near normal levels with a return to
more zonal flow. Now many would argue that high temperatures
forecasted to be in the 90s, which will be the case for the san
joaquin valley and kern county desert areas this week, is not much
of a reason to celebrate, but those same people probably were not
dealing with the 9 days of 100 degrees plus for high temperatures
and having nighttime lows only falling into the 70s or lower 80s
on many of those days. So I am sure for most of the people of the
central california interior that this will be a most welcome
change, even though it will still technically be hot. At least
now, when I am sitting there complaining about the heat of a hot
97 degree day that I will have the thoughts of the recent heat
wave in my head reminding me that it can always be worse. It seems
like such an odd thing to call highs in the 90s cooler, so
instead of using cooler I will now use the term reduction in heat
as a replacement. So, as much as this coming weeks temperatures
will feel like a relief remember that even this reduction in heat
can still be a hazard. Especially, the insides of vehicles, never
leave anybody or pets inside of an enclosed vehicle, even for a|
short period. The conditions inside of a closed vehicle can
quickly become fatal with the intense sun. Also, be sure to stay
hydrated and continue to take routine breaks from working in the
This afternoon and evening there will be the possibility of an
isolated thunderstorm or two over the higher elevations of the
sierra. Dry conditions will then be expected through much of the
remainder of the week. A weak trof moving into the region next
weekend will again increase chances for thunderstorms over the
mountain crest areas.
Winds will also be breezy to gusty at times for the coastal
passes and kern county mountain pass areas over the next several
days. So please use caution when driving through these areas.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the higher elevations of
the southern sierra nevada through 06z Monday. Otherwise,VFR
conditions will prevail across the central ca interior during the
next 24 hours.

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.
