national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
437 am pst Wed nov 14 2018
A ridge of high pressure will remain over the area through
the end of the week with continued dry weather and near
A pacific high pressure ridge continues to influence our weather,
creating dry and stagnant conditions with afternoon highs running
a few degrees above normal, and trapping smoke from ca wildfires
in the lower levels. An air quality ALERT remains in effect due to
health impacts from the smoke. High cloudiness overhead is now moving
south of our area as a weak ripple pushes through the ridge.
The pacific ridge is progged to amplify along the west coast
during the next few days while energy drops south from the gulf of
alaska region. This will keep dry conditions and slightly warmer
than normal days in place through the end of the week.
Model solutions are similar, as the weak low pressure area drifts
to near southern ca northern baja by early next week. This will
weaken the ridge and bring afternoon highs down a few degrees to
near climo. A developing northeast pacific trough will meanwhile
approach the west coast and could bring some precipitation mainly
north of our area by Tuesday. There is increased model discrepancy
with this system and the impacts for us Tuesday and beyond are not
certain, but some precipitation may be in the cards for central
california by midweek.|
Smoke and haze will create widespread MVFR visibilities in the san
joaquin valley and adjacent foothills through at least the next 24
hours, mainly north of kern county. Occasional local ifr
visibilities will occur from fresno county northward and in the
vicinity of the alder fire.VFR conditions will otherwise prevail
across the central california interior through at least the next 24

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
