Synopsis
Precipitation along the back side of a low pressure system will
come to an end this afternoon. An eastern pacific ridge of high
pressure will be responsible for an extended period of dry
weather Monday night into the upcoming weekend.

Discussion
A low pressure system will progress eastward through the great
basin today. Lingering moisture on the back side of this
disturbance will produce precipitation in the sierra nevada, the
kern county mountains, and the sierra nevada foothills this
morning. The snow level has dropped to 4,000 feet and should
continue to fall this morning. An additional three to five inches
of snow is possible in the sierra nevada this morning above 4,000
feet. One to two inches of snow is possible in the kern county
mountains this morning above 4,000 feet. Wintry precipitation
down to pass level could impact the morning commute in the kern
county mountains and along interstate 5 through the grapevine.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for the sierra nevada from
yosemite to kings canyon and for the kern county mountains this
morning. Precipitation will come to an end this afternoon, but
strong, gusty winds will persist in the kern county mountains. A
high wind warning is in effect for the kern county mountains for
wind gusts as high as 70 mph, especially just below the passes.

A ridge of high pressure aloft will be located over the eastern
pacific ocean Monday night and Tuesday. A rather feeble short wave
trough will approach the pacific northwest Tuesday night, before
progressing southeastward through that region Wednesday. This
weak short wave trough will dive southeastward into the great
basin Wednesday night. This atmospheric impulse should not affect
central california. An upper-level ridge of high pressure will be
located along longitude 130 west Thursday through Friday. This
ridge of high pressure aloft will approach the west coast of the
united states Friday night. The upper-level ridge of high
pressure will be centered over the golden state Saturday into
Sunday. Dry weather is expected Monday night through at least
Sunday. A strong atmospheric temperature inversion may result in
lengthy periods of fog and stratus clouds in the san joaquin
valley Monday night into the upcoming weekend.

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.
