Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 226 AM PST Tue Jan 19 2021

SYNOPSIS. Strong, gusty winds can be expected in the foothills and higher elevations of the Sierra through this evening in addition to the Kern county mountains and the west side of the San Joaquin Valley. The remainder of this week through Thursday night will be dry with relatively light winds. The weather will turn much cooler and unsettled Friday into early next week.

DISCUSSION. A variety of weather is in store for the central California interior during the next 7 days beginning with strong winds in the near term and a change to much cooler and unsettled weather by week's end. As of this writing, a high wind event is well underway in the foothills and higher elevations of the Sierra. Several automated gages in the Madera county foothills have been reporting wind gusts in the 45 to 55 mph range. Until the Cascadel Heights gage went offline at midnight, east winds gusted to 110 mph! The east winds have been bringing much drier air into this region as well, so the fire danger will remain elevated in the foothills and higher elevations of the Sierra until winds abate and the humidity recovers tonight. The strong winds will also down trees in this region during the next several hours. This is not the only part of our CWA where winds will be a problem into early tonight, however. Brisk easterly winds will buffet the mountains and valley facing slopes of Kern county into tonight in addition to the San Joaquin Valley primarily west of I-5. Although the wind will be relatively light over much of the rest of the San Joaquin Valley today, there will be dust and other particulate matter stirred up throughout the day resulting in poor air quality.

The strong offshore flow is occurring on the northwest side of a closed low which has been tracking southwestward. The low was over the Great Basin Monday and the models forecast it to be centered off the coast of southern California by this afternoon. From there, the low is expected to gravitate southward and end up over the coastal waters of the Baja peninsula tonight. Until it gets there, a powerful northeast to southwest oriented 300 mb jet (100+ knots) will reside over central California. We can expect winds to finally diminish by late tonight over much of the CWA, although they could still be locally gusty through the Kern county mountain passes until daybreak Wednesday. Otherwise, the offshore flow will weaken by late tonight as an upper level ridge of high pressure builds in from the north. Meanwhile, there will be a good deal of mid level cloudiness residing over the Kern County desert and mountains as well as the Sierra crest.

Our weather will be much more tranquil and mostly clear Wednesday through Wednesday night as the ridge axis moves directly over central California. The ridge will be flattened Thursday, during which time we'll transition to an onshore flow pattern. Otherwise, dry weather will continue through Thursday night.

And now for the good news. A cold storm system, the first of possibly two more that could follow, will bring a chance of showers to much of the CWA by the end of this week into the weekend. The storm behind it could bring additional showers to the CWA early next week. The models forecast weak upper level ridging to move over central California between these two storm systems on Sunday. If so, Sunday's weather will be dry with lingering clouds in the upslope regions of our CWA. Confidence is medium at best with timing these showery periods. We're more confident about temperatures this week which will trend cooler day by day through Friday. High temperatures through Thursday will still run above normal. Friday into early next week will be noticeably cooler with temperatures finally more typical of late January.

AVIATION. Areas of MVFR visibilities can be expected in the San Joaquin Valley until 19z Wednesday due to dust and haze. VFR conditions will prevail elsewhere over the central California interior during the next 24 hours. Strong winds in excess of 35 knots will occur over much of the higher terrain through 09z Wednesday.

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.
