Synopsis
Warming trend continues into the weekend with slightly cooler
temperatures early to mid next week. No precipitation is expected
but areas of smoke and or haze will continue.

Discussion
An upper level trough will continue to track east through the
pacnw and this will allow for a ridge to build into norcal today
and tomorrow bringing hot and dry conditions. Highs this
afternoon will generally run about 3-6 degrees warmer than
yesterday. The ridge will be centered over us on Saturday and that
will bring the warmest day to the area with highs near 100 in the
southern part of the valley and as warm as 104 up north. The
ridge will also strengthen the inversion and bring a bit more
widespread haze. As we head into Sunday a trough will push into
the pacnw pushing our ridge to the east. This will bring slightly
cooler temperatures although they will still remain on the warm
side on Sunday. With the incoming trough we will see increasing sw
winds with the breeziest winds expected in the sierra.

That trough will then hang out on the west coast into early next
week. This will keep temperatures near average for this time of
year and somewhat higher elevation breezy winds will continue
into early next week. As the trough pushes in it will push monsoon
moisture well east and moisture associated with the trough will
remain north. This will keep conditions stable with no precip
expected.

-cjm
.Extended discussion (Tuesday through Friday)
a short wave ridge will build in for the mid part of the week and
that will bring slightly warmer temperatures with them running a
few degrees above average. Long wave troughing moves in for the
end of the week with temperatures cooling slightly. Enough
westerly southwesterly flow expected to limit potential for deep
convection over the mountains.

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.
