Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

national weather service san joaquin valley - hanford ca
418 pm pst Wed dec 12 2018
Updated air quality section.
Dry weather will prevail through at least Friday with night and
morning fog possible in the san joaquin valley. There is a small
chance of light precipitation Friday night. A stronger system is
possible by Sunday for moderate rain and mountain snow.
Grey skies continue across the district today as clouds shift
from east to west. Satellite imagery showing a pattern of wavy
clouds from possible strong northerly winds aloft. With the
continuation of the low clouds, temperatures remained on the
cooler side, but, still at near seasonal normals. While a short-
wave ridge pattern will transit the region during the next few
days, fog development will remain difficult due to the persistent
low clouds lingering over the san joaquin valley. Yet, by the end
of the week a weather disturbance crossing the region will
introduce another round of possible precipitation to central
california during the extended period.
Models showing higher confidence levels in introducing the first
in a series of disturbances on Friday night. Current timing of
starting the precipitation onto the west coast after 4 pm pst
(00utc) still looking reasonable. Yet, the strength of the
disturbance is in question once the storm arrives onto the central
california interior. Models continue to show a split flow type
pattern with minimal dynamics reaching areas south of sacramento
(interstate 80). Therefore, will keep the current mention of
minimal precipitation accumulation north of fresno county with
the first storm. In the meanwhile, haze and shallow fog may be
observed across the san joaquin valley ahead of the first storm on
Friday morning. By Saturday morning, strong winds and a
continuation of cloudy skies may prevent the formation of thick-|
dense fog from forming. Fog will be "touch and go" until the
stronger storm arrive into central california early next week.
The end of the week storm will open the door for a stronger storm
to enter the region early next week. While models are showing some
uncertainty on the timing and strength of Monday's storm, models
do agree on introducing a digging trof pattern near the start of
the work week. Therefore, confidence is growing that this second
storm will produce measurable rain and snow as far south as the
kern county mountains. Jet MAX dynamics reaching into southern
california early next week may add support to having kern county
receiving measurable precipitation on Monday. By Tuesday, as the
dynamic support exits the region, lingering light precipitation
may continue before possible clearing toward mid-week. A
developing ridge pattern toward Wednesday will further the
clearing toward Tuesday night as fog development increases during
the latter periods of the forecast period.
In the san joaquin valley and over the southern sierra foothills,
MVFR conditions in fog, low clouds, haze, and mist through 20z.
Otherwise, mainlyVFR 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. 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.
