Synopsis
High pressure will lead to dry and stagnant conditions through
the week. Localized degradation of air quality is possible under
valley inversions. A pattern change next week may open the door
for a couple of weak storm systems but heavy precipitation is
unlikely.

Discussion
Not much change in the overall ideas for the forecast the next 7
days. However, there were some minor adjustments in the next 36
hours with regards to smoke and haze from the camp fire, and the
potential storm next week.

The ridge remains with a weak wave passing into the pacific
northwest the next 24 hours. It will keep abundant high clouds
across the region. In addition, it is changing the flow aloft to a
light west. At the surface it normally wouldn't mean much as
general light slow winds will continue. However, upslope winds on
the west slope of the sierra will bring some smoke and haze east
of the crest later tonight into tomorrow. The hrrr smoke shows it
getting to almost i-80 by tomorrow afternoon and have added it to
the forecast as it fits the conceptual models. We aren't sure just
how dense the smoke will be and associated air quality impacts,
but expect some reduced visibility in haze at a minimum. This
pattern will continue through Saturday, and if the camp fire
continues to produce a bunch of smoke, air quality will
deteriorate.

This weekend, the backdoor front that was depicted on the 00z runs
is well east in the 12z runs and ensembles. So there may be little
change, and a persistent pattern through Monday.

For the middle of next week, there is higher confidence in a
system moving in with some rain and snow. The ensembles all show
troughing along the west coast by Wednesday. The details of how
much precip, and the snow levels will still need to be worked out.

What I can say is it doesn't look any bigger than a routine winter
storm at best. The best news is that almost all ensemble runs do
not have a significant downslope wind event before the precip
moves in. Looking at the ensembles, the chances of a significant
downslope event are less than 20% as of this writing. X

Aviation
Vfr with high clouds and light winds the next 24 hours. The
biggest impacts may be smoke from the camp fire after 12z
Wednesday. Mtn obscuration may occur with the smoke and haze, with
the best chances of reduced visibility through Wednesday west of
a ksve to portola line. Smoke and visibility impacts may increase
later in the week if the camp fire continues to burn actively. X

Rev watches warnings advisories
Nv... None.

Ca... None.

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.
