Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Hanford CA 429 PM PDT Mon Sep 21 2020

UPDATE. Updated AIR QUALITY ISSUES section.

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather with temperatures near seasonal averages will continue through the week. Mainly clear skies will prevail, except for some areas of smoke and haze, especially across the Sierra Nevada and adjacent foothills. High pressure will bring warming temperatures for the start of next week.

DISCUSSION. Westerly flow across central California has turned a bit southwesterly ahead of a week shortwave impulse tracking into the coast. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures are running up a few degrees from 24 hrs ago and are on track to top out a few degrees above normal.

Models maintain this general pattern through the week. with zonal flow over the region and occasional shortwave troughs passing through. In this pattern, our conditions will remain dry with temperatures cooling just a few degrees during the next few days. Friday highs should be around 4-8 degrees below climo.

By Saturday, a significant ridge is progged to begin building over the west coast. Under the building ridge, dry weather will continue and temperatures will trend upward through the weekend and into early next week. By next Monday, we can expect highs to run as much as 4-8 degrees above seasonal averages.

AVIATION. Areas of MVFR visibility and local IFR visibility due to smoke will continue across the Sierra Nevada and adjacent foothills for the next 24 hours. Elsewhere across the Central CA Interior, local MVFR visibility due to smoke and haze will continue for the next 24 hours.

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.
