Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 342 AM PDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. Temperatures will increase and approach the century mark for the holiday weekend. Average temperatures are expected for the majority of next week. Dry conditions will continue the next 7 days.

DISCUSSION. High pressure near the TX/NM border and a deep trough over the PacNW has kept the region under a dry, southwesterly onshore flow. Temperatures remained near average across the district on Friday. The exception to this was over western Merced County, which continued to see cooler temperatures due to a push of a deep marine layer (~2,000ft) through Pacheco Pass.

Temperatures will be on the rise for the holiday weekend as high pressure continues to retrograde west toward northern Baja. This will increase 500mb heights to roughly 5910 meters over our region. Locations across the valley, lower elevations of the Sierra foothills, and the Kern County desert will approach the century mark. These temperatures are between 3 to 6 degrees above average. Increasing pressure gradients will lead to gusty winds each afternoon through and below the mountain passes and surrounding desert areas in Kern County.

From Monday through Thursday, the deterministic model solutions as well as the North American Ensemble Forecast System (NAEFS) show a deep longwave trough settling south over California. Increasing onshore flow will lower temperatures back to average conditions. By late next week into the weekend, models and ensembles are in decent agreement building a strong ridge of high pressure over the Great Basin. Temperatures are expected to increase back above average by the end of next week. Dry conditions are expected at least through the 7 days.

AVIATION. Wind gusts up to 35 kts are possible through and below the mountain passes and surround desert areas in Kern County from 00Z Sunday through at least 12Z Sun. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail over the central CA interior for at least 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.
