Synopsis A storm system moving through today will bring light
precipitation, gusty winds and much cooler temperatures. The storm
will exit the region tonight with dry conditions and a warming
trend this weekend into the middle of next week.
Discussion Precipitation is finally beginning to spread into
central california at this time. Radar imagery shows the leading
edge of the frontal band just reaching yosemite np and stretching
southwest across merced county. The latest hi-res models show the
front reaching kern county by around sunrise. Mostly light precip
is expected but briefly moderate, especially in the mountains due
to orographic enhancement. QPF is up to one quarter of an inch in
the sierra around yosemite np and up to one tenth of an inch south
through the tehachapi mountains. The sj valley will generally see
only a few hundredths of an inch though a few locations may see
as much as a tenth of an inch. The snow level is currently around
9500 feet in yosemite np, but will lower to around 8000 later over
the next few hours. Snow amounts of 1-3 inches will be possible
around yosemite np, with a dusting to 1 inch southward. Most of
the activity will end by noon though some light upslope showers
are possible from the tehachapi mountains up to around sequoia np.
Windy conditions are already occurring through and below passes
in the kern county mountains and desert as onshore surface
pressure gradients increase. A wind advisory is in effect for
these areas through 11 pm tonight. Several gauges are measuring
gusts around 40-50 mph over the last few hours. Gusty conditions
will develop across the sj valley as well as the front moves
through. Gusts of 20-30 mph are expected through this evening.|
Winds will diminish overnight into Saturday morning.
This system is bringing in a much cooler air mass so temperatures
will be well below normal today. Highs in the sj valley will be in
the upper 60s in most areas, around 10 degrees below normal. Parts
of the sierra could see temperatures 15-20 degrees below normal.
The trough will quickly exit to the east on Saturday but a cool
northwesterly flow aloft will continue. Models agrees with strong
high pressure building in through the middle of next week for a
warming and drying trend. Highs are forecast to be back to around
normal on Sunday then climbing to about 10 degrees above normal on
Tuesday and Wednesday. An upper trough is projected to drop down
from canada over the rockies later next week and weaken the ridge
for some slight cooling.
Areas of MVFR and local ifr conditions with mountain obscurations in
clouds and precipitation through 18z, then local MVFR in clouds and
showers in the mountains through 00z Saturday. Wind gusts 40-50 kts
over the sierra crest and in the kern county mountains through 06z

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.
