Synopsis
Dry weather and near to slightly above normal high temperatures
will continue through the beginning of next week. Winds will
remain light except for breezy to gusty conditions near and
through pass areas. Areas of smoke and haze will continue for the
san joaquin valley.

Discussion
Smoke and haze continues to affect the san joaquin valley and
foothill areas. The main smoke contributer is from the camp fire
in butte county in northern california, but the alder mountaineer
fire in tulare county also is adding to the issue. The northerly
flow will allow the smoke haze issues to persist into the weekend.

On Saturday the flow looks to become more westerly which should
mitigate the amount of smoke making it into the southern san
joaquin valley.

High temperatures will remain near to slightly above normal.

However, minimum temperatures across the sjv will continue to drop
below normal levels due to dry conditions and mostly clear skies.

Lack of a nighttime fog blanket really does keep the min
temps colder and without rain the fog will be kept mostly at bay.

Threat of patchy frost will continue for many parts of the sjv
over the next couple of nights.

Winds will remain light and terrain driven, but with the northerly
flow winds will be breezy to gusty near and through mountain
passes. Especially through the grapevine pass.

As far as the four letter word beginning with r, the latest models
are struggling with a system development by the middle of next
week. At this time, chances are very low, and just knowing that
models do struggle with precipitation, especially in this dry
regime, am not willing to hang my hat on a rain event next week.

There is even a possibility of a rex block pattern setting up
with a cutoff low moving through southern california. If this
develops then all bets are off as the energy that could bring the
rain would simply slide northward and far from central california.

So the rain chances next week are not totally impossible which is
why I left in chances of light rain, but this forecaster is just
not willing to go completely out on this limb, maybe if I was
thinner and lighter.

Aviation
Smoke and haze will continue to create widespread MVFR visibilities
in the san joaquin valley and adjacent foothills through at least
the next 24 hours, mainly north of kern county. During the overnight
hours, expect occasional local ifr visibilities occurring from
fresno county northward and in the vicinity of the wildfires.VFR
conditions will otherwise prevail across the central california
interior through at least the next 24 hours.

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.
