Update Updated air quality issues.
A pacific weather system will move across the region Wednesday
night and Thursday bringing another chance of precipitation. High
pressure will then rebuild for a return to dry weather beginning
The stratus clouds that cover much of the san joaquin valley this
morning have burned off in all but the northwest part of the
valley this afternoon, and even that area is continuing to clear.
The big question is whether any fog or low stratus will return
tonight. At this time, I think there will be at least some patchy
fog and stratus overnight, but only locally dense fog. Skies will
clear again Wednesday afternoon ahead of an approaching frontal
system which is expected to arrive Wednesday night and Thursday.
The low pressure system associated with the cold front is off the
pacific northwest coast today and is expected to remain pretty far
north, moving into the british columbia coast on Thursday. With
the cold front moving out ahead of the main low, it is expected to
weaken as it moves into central california. The front is expected
to begin spreading precipitation into the northern part of the cwa
late Wednesday afternoon early Wednesday evening and spread south
overnight. By Thursday morning, expect most of the precipitation
to be limited to the mountains with slight chances remaining in
the san joaquin valley.
Precipitation amounts remain on the light side, with generally a
tenth to a quarter of an inch in the san joaquin valley north of
kern county, and less than a tenth of an inch in kern county. For|
the sierra nevada foothill, around a half inch in the north to a
tenth of an inch in the south. Snow levels in the sierra will be
4500 to 5500 feet Wednesday night through Thursday morning, then
lower to 3500 to 4000 feet Thursday afternoon. Snow amounts are
expected to be 2 to 7 inches near yosemite with locally up to 10
inches in the highest elevations. Farther south in the sierra,
amounts will be 1 to 4 inches. At this time, it appears unlikely
that snow amounts will be enough to meet winter weather advisory
The kern county mountains will see a few light showers Thursday
afternoon and Thursday night before the system moves out. Wet
roads and below freezing temperatures by early Friday morning
could lead to some black ice and slippery conditions late Thursday
night and early Friday morning.
By Friday, models move this system well east of the area and build
in a ridge of high pressure for a return to dry weather through
Areas of MVFR and local ifr visibilities in mist and fog developing
in the san joaquin valley 10z-18z Wednesday. Otherwise,VFR conditions
will prevail across the central ca interior for the next 24 hours.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
