Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Hanford CA 425 PM PDT Tue Sep 21 2021

UPDATE. Updated AIR QUALITY SECTION.

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather and above normal temperatures can be expected over the district for the remainder of this week with areas of smoke.

DISCUSSION. This last full day of Summer is living up to its reputation over much of the central California interior this afternoon. Thermometer readings will be well into the 90s where sunshine prevails in the San Joaquin Valley and the Kern county desert. The heat isn't the big issue this afternoon, however, after what's ended up as a long hot Summer. Instead, it's smoke from active wildfires in the Tulare county mountains that's a primary health impact in the current weather pattern.

Since last night, an east to southeast flow aloft has carried wildfire smoke into much of the CWA north of Kern county and significantly worsened air quality, especially in the San Joaquin Valley and adjacent foothills. An Air Quality Alert is in effect for much of this region into Thursday morning as a result. Up until then, much of this smoke will remain trapped under an upper level ridge of high pressure which is currently situated right over central California. The ridge will weaken during the next 24 hours and be shunted southward by an upper level trough that approaches from the northwest. As this upper level trough tracks into the Great Basin, winds aloft will become northwesterly over the CWA by Wednesday evening which in turn will disperse much of the smoke and bring a gradual improvement in air quality to most areas that are currently impacted by it. However, wildfire smoke may return to the same areas by Thursday afternoon or evening as winds aloft become offshore again in the wake of the upper level trough. Otherwise, temperatures will trend a bit cooler again by Thursday, which coincidentally will be our first full day of Fall. (The Autumnal Equinox officially occurs at 12:20 pm PDT Wednesday.)

Our earlier concerns for the possibility of higher elevation thunderstorms toward the end of this week through the weekend have been greatly reduced with the latest run of the models. It now appears that the development of a closed low and its associated moisture will be much farther south than originally progged. The models agree in centering this low near northern Baja in the 3 to 5 day period which would therefore put the greatest threat of thunderstorms over the Desert southwest Friday through the weekend. Our weather pattern will instead be dominated by an upper level ridge of high pressure over the Eastern Pacific Friday through Sunday with the continuation of a prevailing offshore flow aloft.

On days 6 and 7, the models forecast the cutoff low to be ejected into the southern Rockies by an upper level trough that moves into the Pacific Northwest. Winds aloft will transition to northwesterly again by early next week. Temperature-wise, despite a slight cooldown Thursday, much of the central California interior will average warmer than normal during the next several days. Dry weather will also be the rule.

AVIATION. In the San Joaquin Valley, the foothills and higher elevations of the Sierra mainly north of Kern county, areas of MVFR visibilities can be expected due to smoke and haze with local IFR visibilities persisting in the vicinity of wildfires in the Tulare county mountains during the next 24 hours. Elsewhere, VFR conditions will prevail through Wednesday evening.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES. Please see the Air Quality Alert (AQAHNX) which is in effect until Thursday morning.

On Wednesday September 22 2021 . Hazardous in Sequoia National Park and Forest. Unhealthy in Tulare County. Unhealthy for sensitive groups in Kern County.
