What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Heat advisories remain in effect Tuesday through Thursday due to
well above normal temperatures. Conditions will be much drier
than previous days with only isolated thunderstorms for southern
mono and mineral counties. High pressure will begin to shift
eastward on Thursday with thunderstorm chances increasing into the
weekend as temperatures gradually cool.

Short term
Well above average temperatures are expected for the next few days
as strong high pressure dominates the great basin. Temperatures
will be running around 10 degrees above normal for mid-july. Also,
the length of this heat wave is also fairly unusual.

Heat advisories remain in effect for the region, namely for the
lower valleys of western nevada and for surprise valley, ca. These
areas are where the threat for heat related illness is high for
sensitive populations as well as those working or recreating
outdoors. Anyone outdoors should be prepared for the heat, and
carry extra water. Temperatures for the next few days will reach to
around 100-106 degrees over the next few days in western nevada and
highs in the upper 80s 90s across the sierra valleys. Overnight lows
will also be on the warmer-than-normal side with lows in the 60s and
low 70s.

Light zephyr breezes are expected each afternoon for the next few
days with some gusts up to 20 mph. Afternoon west winds will bring
in additional smoke from the ferguson fire near yosemite. Light
smoke and haze will carry on through the next couple days and
possibly through the rest of the week. Smoke may affect air quality
as well, depending on how much smoke gets generated by the ferguson
fire.

Drier conditions are expected as well. The only thunderstorm chances
will be mainly over the typical mono-mineral convergence zone with
some lingering moisture and instability keeping keep a few late-day
thunderstorms in the forecast. Thunderstorm activity will start to
increase by Thursday afternoon as additional moisture begins to move
up into western nevada. Hoon

Long term Friday through Monday...

with broad upper level ridge over the southwest us and great basin,
above average temperatures will continue into early next week.

Increasing moisture and associated cloud cover should ease highs
back a few degrees compared to the hot conditions expected through
Thursday. Lows will remain on the warm side though, with most
valleys only dropping to the mid 60s-lower 70s each night.

The combination of abundant moisture, daytime heating and light
winds will lead to isolated-scattered thunderstorm activity each
afternoon and evening with mainly slow moving cells. As we have seen
the past few days, storms will have potential for producing
localized heavy rainfall in excess of 1 inch, but little or no rain
just short distances from where these storms develop. Burn scars,
steep terrain, and urban areas remain at risk for flash flooding
in this thunderstorm pattern. Hail and strong outflow gusts
above 45 mph are less likely, especially on the weekend when the
deepest moisture is projected. A thicker cloud deck may also limit
thunderstorm coverage strength this weekend.

While large scale forcing will be limited, weak upper level
disturbances could trigger small areas of enhanced convection each
day. While forecast confidence is low for which locations receive
the most storms, the overall better potential looks to favor areas
south of us-50, with decreasing thunderstorm chances farther north.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail through midweek although areas of haze
and smoke aloft from the ferguson fire will likely continue. Late
afternoon-evening wind gusts around 20 kt are expected along the
us-395 corridor with lighter winds elsewhere. A drier westerly
flow aloft will limit isolated thunderstorms to mono-mineral
counties through Tuesday, and possibly edging northward to near us-
50 by Wednesday. For the main terminals, only kmmh is at risk of
being affected by thunder--less than 10% probability thru Tuesday,
increasing to near 20% by Wednesday. Storm coverage will increase
and expand northward later this week. Mjd

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.
