area forecast discussion
national weather service sacramento ca
206 pm pdt Sun sep 24 2017

Synopsis
Warmer through mid week with dry conditions continuing. Breezy
north winds next few days for increased fire danger. Cooler
towards the end of the week with lighter winds.

Discussion
A ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the region
and remain in place through midweek. Little change in winds
expected the next couple of days with northerly winds in the
valley being the strongest during the day and easterly winds in
the mountains being the strongest at night and in the morning
hours. Winds will help to keep poor humidity recovery's for a
number of areas at night, especially for the coastal range.

Temperatures will warm a little each of the next several days
topping out in the 90s by the middle of this week.

.Extended discussion (Thursday through Sunday)
upper level ridge over the epac will lead to dry conditions and
above normal temperatures across the forecast area in the extended
period. Ridge axis progged to be displaced as an upper trough
moves into the pacific northwest. Not much cooling is expected as
this system skirts to the north, except for keeping the
temperatures from trending upward. Forecast guidance indicates
that the upper ridge will rebuild and strengthen across interior
norcal next weekend. Therefore, valley highs could climb into the
mid to upper 90s. Temperatures are forecast to be 5-11 degrees
above seasonal normals.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected for valley TAF sites for the next 24
hours. Afternoon breezy winds over the northern valley will
continue through 02z Monday. Northerly gusts up to 20-25 kts
possible in the northern sacramento valley tomorrow 18-02z.

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.
