401 am pdt Thu jun 29 2017
Synopsis Dry and warm conditions will continue through the
upcoming weekend as high pressure remains dominant over the area.
Discussion Strengthening upper ridge off the ca coast is
providing for a clear night across our area. At this time our
area remains situated under a dry northwest flow while increased
onshore p-grads produce locally gusty winds in the mojave area
once again overnight.
Meanwhile, the upper ridge is progged to build inland today and
Friday which will bring warmer temepratures to our area as heights
and thicknesses rise. Daytime maximums will once again reach the
century mark across much of the san joaquin valley by Friday. The
building ridge will also result in diminishing winds as p-grads
The ridge is progged to shift east over the weekend as a shortwave
trough pushes into norcal on satruday then drops into the great
basin satruday night. This will bring a slight cooling trend to
the area on satruday, most noticably to the central san joaquin
valley which will likely be impacted by a shallow intrusion of
marine cooled air. Increased p-grads on satruday night might bring|
another period of breezy conditions to portions of the kern
county mountains and deserts. Some recovery in temepratures is
anticipated on Sunday as heights and thicknesses rise.
The medium range models indicates the ridge will slowly shift
inland while a trough slowly digs off the pac NW coast during the
first half of next week. This will keep a dry southwest flow over
our area. Temperatures will be fairly close to normal for much of
Area rivers will remain fast and cold as a result of continued
snow melt and will continue to be a concern through next week.
Aviation Vfr conditions will prevail across the central ca
interior during 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.
