Dry weather and above normal temperatures will continue into
Tuesday under the influence of high pressure. By Tuesday night, a
storm system will begin to impact central california, bringing
valley rain and mountain snow through Thursday morning. Another
disturbance may impact the district by Saturday.
Meridional ridge pattern over the western third of the us is
allowing for a nice warmup across the region today. Temperatures
are running 5 to 10 degrees above normal today for the forecast
Increasing clouds during the day with showers possible tomorrow
afternoon in the sierra as a weather maker will move inland
tomorrow night from the pacific. Temperatures will cool down and
it could get a bit breezy tomorrow afternoon in advance of the
front.We are not expecting significant precip with this system
across the cencal region. The system will stall out off the coast
late Wednesday. This will keep the pattern unsettled into Thursday
with continued chances of precip across the region. Afternoon
thunderstorms are also possible Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Unsettled conditions are expected on Thursday with clouds and
showers possible. Showers are not expected to be heavy. The upper|
level low system will be east of the region by Thursday afternoon
and we are expecting some clearing Thursday night and into early
Friday morning. Another fast moving weather maker will move into
the area by Friday afternoon as showers will spread across the
sierra, but the precip will be slow to get into the valley. The
latest runs of the GFS and ecm are scaling back this system and
its associated precip fields. It appears we will see a brief
period of valley rain and mountain snow Friday night into early
We will see a break Saturday night and on Sunday with dry
conditions and seasonable temperatures. Another weather maker will
approach the region early Monday with clouds and precip moving in
during the day on Monday and continuing into Monday evening.
Vfr conditions will prevail across the central california interior
for at least the next 24 hours.

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.
