351 am pdt Sat jun 24 2017
Synopsis Slightly lower temperatures this weekend but still
well above normal. A few afternoon and evening thunderstorms
remain possible over the southern sierra nevada through Sunday.
Dry conditions and more noticeable cooling will occur early next
Discussion High pressure over the region continues to dominate
but is weakening a little. This will allow temperatures to cool
slightly this weekend, except for the desert where little change
is expected. Despite this, most of the san joaquin valley and
lower foothills will still see triple digit highs. The onshore
surface flow has picked up a little and the fort ord profiler
shows the marine layer depth approaching 2000 feet. This should
help cool areas around merced county and western fresno county a
bit more with highs in the upper 90s. Due to the prevailing 100+
degrees highs forecast, a heat advisory is in effect through the
weekend for the sj valley, foothills, and kern county mountains.
As mentioned earlier, the kern county desert will continue to see
temperatures climbing to 106-113. Thus, an excessive heat warning
remains in effect there through the weekend.
A more widespread and significant cooldown is expect early next
week as an epac upper trough moves in over northern california.
This will drop temperatures down about 10 degrees from Sunday to
Tuesday. Highs in the sj valley will be back to more seasonable
levels for late june, the lower to mid 90s. Also, stronger onshore
surface flow will spread more marine air into the sj valley. More
comfortable night time temperatures will occur with some parts of
merced county and western fresno county dropping into the upper
50s overnight. Little change is expected through the rest of the
week with a general zonal flow aloft.
Satellite imagery shows some mid high level clouds spreading in
from the south as a weak disturbance rounds the upper ridge. A few|
afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible over the sierra
nevada this weekend with today seeing a little better chance than
Sunday. Any storms that develop today would generally move from
south to north, but a little southeast component could push some
towards the foothills. Steering flow on Sunday is westerly, so
any storms would be confined along the sierra crest.
People should continue to take extra precautions this weekend
with widespread triple digit heat expected. Try to avoid outdoor
activities during the heat of the day. Preferably, wear light
colored, loose fitting clothing. Take breaks, seek out shade, and
remember to stay hydrated. Children and the elderly are the most
susceptible to the heat. Also, don't forget to provide water and
shelter for pets and livestock.
Snow melt continues from the high sierra with rivers and streams
running very high and fast. A flood warning is in effect along
part of the kings river due to increased releases from pine flat
dam. Also, a flood advisory is in effect along the san joaquin
river below friant dam due to high water releases. Remember too,
the rivers may look inviting during the heat, but the cold and
fast moving waters are extremely dangerous.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the higher elevations
of the southern sierra nevada from 21z Saturday to 04z Sunday.
Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail across the central ca
interior during the next 24 hours.

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.
