Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 206 AM PST Sun Jan 19 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather will continue in Central California through tonight. The next chance for precipitation will be from Monday afternoon through Tuesday night as a weak storm system moves across the region. Dry weather will once again prevail from Wednesday through Friday. Expect seasonably cool temperatures with periods of night and morning fog across the San Joaquin Valley.

DISCUSSION. High pressure strengthening over CA overnight which will maintain dry weather across the area today and tonight. Meanwhile inversion conditions have resulted in a low cloud deck reforming during the evening over the San Joaquin Valley and webcams are indicating some patches of dense fog. With dewpoints in the valley remaining in the lower 40s and high pressure continuing to strengthen, the stratus deck has the potential to lower enough by sunrise for widespread dense fog across the valley this morning. A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect for much of the valley until noon PST today.

Meanwhile, IR imagery is indicating some high clouds pushing through the ridge into central CA north of Kern County. More high clouds are expected to push inland today ahead of a strong low pressure system that is progged to push across the PAC NW Tuesday and Tuesday night. Some mid level moisture is progged to push inland ahead of the system on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday which will likely limit the presence of fog in the valley and provide for a slight chance of light precipitation over the Sierra Nevada. As the low moves inland on Tuesday, precipitation will spread southward across Norcal and is expected to brush our area with some light precipitation from Fresno County northward with up to a quarter inch of liquid precipitation in the Sierra Nevada with the snow level running around 6000 feet.

WRF indicating another ridge builds into central CA on Wednesday and the medium range models are in good agreement with amplifying the ridge on Thursday and Friday. This will result in dry weather with a warming trend for our area. Night and morning fog will be possible in the San Joaquin Valley during this period as inversion conditions and light winds are expected. If there is enough clearing then periods of dense fog will be possible in the valley again later this week.

The models then diverge by next weekend with high ensemble spread and a lack of run to run consistency resulting in a low confidence forecast beyond Friday. The operational 00Z GFS keeps our area dry while the operational 00Z ECMWF looks wet for our area. Our forecast follows the National Blend of Models (NBM) which breaks down the ridge on Saturday and brings an upper trough through CA next Sunday which will provide for a chance of precipitation across our area by next Sunday.

AVIATION. In the San Joaquin Valley, mainly MVFR in mist and haze with areas of IFR conditions due to mist and low clouds with LIFR conditions at times due to fog thru 20Z Sun. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected across the central CA interior for the next 24 hours.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES. On Sunday January 19 2020 . Fireplace/Wood Stove Burning Status is: No Burning Unless Registered in Fresno . Kern . Kings . Madera and Tulare Counties. Further information is available at Valleyair.org

CERTAINTY.

The level of certainty for days 1 and 2 is medium. The level of certainty for days 3 through 7 is medium.

Certainty levels include low . medium . and high. Please visit www.weather.gov/hnx/certainty.html for additional information an/or to provide feedback.

HNX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Dense Fog Advisory until noon PST today for CAZ180>189.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
