area forecast discussion
national weather service sacramento ca
207 pm pdt Fri oct 19 2018

Synopsis
Warm and dry conditions through the weekend with daytime
temperatures a few to several degrees above normal. A cooling
trend will start on Monday with a chance of precipitation
northern forecast area Tuesday through Thursday. High pressure
rebuilding with warming and drying at the end of next week.

Discussion
Little change to the forecast package this afternoon as a rex
block type pattern remains situated over the area with high
pressure sitting over the pacific northwest and a weak low
centered off the socal coast. A surface high pressure digging
into the great basin will bring about a 4mb easterly surface
gradient across the sierra tonight. This combined with upper east
flow will bring breezy east winds over the sierra tonight through
Saturday morning. West facing wind prone canyons could see gusts
up to about 25 mph. As the upper ridge shifts inland on Saturday
winds will decrease with a slight cooling likely as the upper
ridge axis shifts east of the region. Even with the cooling,
daytime highs Saturday will still come in several degrees above
normal.

By Sunday, the socal upper low opens and moves inland over the
state. The effects of this will be minor but most areas will see
at least a little cooling. A bit more cooling occurs on Monday as
the upper low remains over the southwest u.S. But high
temperatures still remain slightly above normal.

.Extended discussion (Tuesday through Friday)
models seem to have eased on the strength of the upcoming rain
pattern, with a weak front still arriving to the pacific northwest
on Tuesday. Both the ec and the GFS have backed off on QPF over
the northern part of the CWA with the next chance of light rain
occurring Thursday night into early Friday morning. Given the
trend, we kept the forecast towards the drier solutions with low
pops mainly over the coastal and shasta mountains Thursday into
Friday. Some lingering showers may be possible mainly over the
shasta mountains Friday morning, otherwise upper ridging will
strengthen over interior norcal. Below normal high temps forecast
Tuesday through Thursday, warming to slightly above normal Friday.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will continue for interior northern california over
the next 24 hours.

Sto watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
