Synopsis A storm system exiting the region will leave just a
few lingering showers over the mountains today, while
unseasonably cool weather continues. Temperatures will warm to
seasonable levels by the middle of next week with a daily chance
of showers over the mountains.
Discussion A low pressure system is swinging eastward across
the southern nevada area after providing our area with a record
cool afternoon yesterday along with some strong thunderstorms.
Highs yesterday were as much as 25-30 degrees below climo while
thunderstorms produced some localized flooding, significant hail,
and some funnel clouds. The system also provided additional
mountain snowfall in the sierra nevada and higher elevations of
the kern county mountains. A winter weather advisory has ended for
the sierra zones as showers have diminished, but continues in kern
county as we can see a few more upslope showers during the early
morning. A wind advisory continues into mid morning for the
mountains and desert in kern co as gusty northwesterly winds
continue on the backside of the low pressure area.
As the system continues to move away to the east we will see an
upward trend in temperatures and an end of precipitation chances
except for a few possible lingering mountain showers. Temperatures
today are expected to run around 5 to 15 degrees above yesterday's
highs, but will still top out around 10 to 20 degrees below
normal for the end of may.|
While this low pressure system will continue to track away to the
east, models indicate a troughy pattern continuing over our region
into the start of next week as shortwave impulses rotate through
the region. During this time we will continue our gradual warmup,
with temperatures back to seasonal averages during the middle of
the week and even climbing a few degrees above climo into the
With the mean trough overhead and passing shortwave energy we will
also have chances for some mountain convection each afternoon
through the weekend.
MVFR conditions with areas of ifr can be expected along the north
facing slopes of the tehachapi mountains through at least 18z
today. Additionally, wind gusts in excess of 35 knots will occur
in the kern county desert until 18z today.VFR conditions can
otherwise be expected over the central california 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.
