Synopsis
Temperatures this afternoon will be near daily record values for
coolest high temperatures ever measured on may 22nd. Temperatures
will gradually moderate into the weekend, but will remain below
normal for this time of year. The majority of precipitation this
week should be confined to the southern sierra nevada. A weekend
storm system may be responsible for more widespread precipitation,
beginning Saturday.

Discussion
West to northwest wind gusts near 50 mph are currently being
measured at mojave airport. These wind gusts should gradually
subside this morning. The wind advisory for the kern county
mountains and desert may need to be extended past 4 am pdt.

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure aloft will meander around
southern california today. High temperatures this afternoon will
be fifteen to twenty degrees below normal for this time of year.

The daily record for coolest maximum temperature ever measured in
bakersfield on may 22nd will likely be set today. The current
record is 68 degrees, initially established in 1965 and most
recently observed in 2010. Temperature records at bakersfield date
back to 1889. Valley rain showers and mountain snow showers are
possible throughout central california this morning. Precipitation
should be confined to the southern sierra nevada and adjacent
foothills, as well as the kern county mountains and desert this
afternoon into this evening.

The aforementioned upper-level area of low pressure will move to
the northeast tonight through Friday. This will allow temperatures
to gradually moderate. Be that as it may, a trough of low
pressure aloft will remain over southern california tonight
through Friday. This upper-level trough of low pressure will
provide enough atmospheric instability for the possibility of snow
showers in the southern sierra nevada and rain showers in the
southern sierra nevada foothills tonight through Thursday evening,
as well as Friday afternoon and Friday evening.

An area of low pressure aloft near the coast of the pacific
northwest should dive southward Friday night. Although the exact
track of this atmospheric disturbance is still in question at this
time, it could move southward near the coast of california
Saturday through Sunday. A winter storm watch may be required for
the southern sierra nevada this weekend, starting Saturday. The
upper-level area of low pressure may move inland over southern
california Sunday night. This area of low pressure aloft should
rapidly progress to the northeast over the great plains Monday,
where it may stall Monday night and Tuesday.

Aviation
MVFR conditions, with local ifr ceilings, can be expected in
the foothills and higher elevations of the sierra and the
kern county mountains through at least 12z Thursday.

Additionally, local wind gusts of 35 knots or greater will
continue right below the kern county mountain passes through
06z Thursday. VFR conditions will prevail elsewhere over
the central california interior during the next 24 hours.

Air quality issues
None.

Certainty
The level of certainty for days 1 and 2 is medium.

The level of certainty for days 3 through 7 is low.

Certainty levels include low, medium, and high. Please visit

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.
