area forecast discussion
national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
434 am pst Thu nov 15 2018

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
Little change in conditions for us under the influence of the high
pressure ridge along the west coast. Another chilly start to today
with highs climbing to a few degrees above climo, while smoke from
area fires continues to produce poor air quality. The air quality
alert therefore remains in effect.

These conditions are progged to continue through the weekend as
models drop a closed low southward from the northeast pacific
during the next couple of days, then open it up and swing it to
the southern ca coast by early next week. So dry and seasonable
weather prevails through Tuesday, then a possible change by the
middle of next week.

The forecast becomes more uncertain after Tuesday as model
solutions diverge. We currently have precipitation chances
beginning Wednesday, with cooler afternoon highs, as some
solutions bring a trough through the area. There are also
indications however that we could be under a dry ridge. So this
forecast is very susceptible to change. This period should come
into better focus as we get more model runs.

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.

Air quality issues
Air quality ALERT in effect until at least 1000 pst Friday
november 16, 2018 for most of the central california interior
excluding the kern county mountains and desert areas.

On Thursday november 15 2018... Unhealthy in merced county and
sequoia national park and forest. Unhealthy for sensitive groups
in fresno... Kern... Kings... Madera and tulare counties.

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.
