Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 346 AM PDT Tue Oct 19 2021

SYNOPSIS. A series of storm systems will impact our area through the end of the week and into early next week. A couple of weak systems will bring precipitation chances mainly north of Fresno County mid and late week, then a more potent storm system will bring wet weather to all of central California for the first part of next week. Temperatures will trend upward to around normal through midweek, then lower back to as much as 8-16 degrees below normal by early next week.

DISCUSSION. The cold frontal system which brought rain and mountain snow along with gusty winds to central California continues to move away to the east, leaving behind cooler air across our area. Current 24 hr temperature trends are running down as much as 8-16 degrees. High temperatures Monday were around 10-15 degrees below climo and will trend upward today under weak ridging, but still top out around 5-10 degrees below normal.

A series of low pressure systems will track inland through the end of this week. The energy with these systems will stay mainly north of central California, and impacts to our area will be limited, There will be slight chances for precipitation Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, mainly from Fresno County northward. QPF totals from these systems ranges from just a couple of hundredths of an inch in Fresno County to no more than a couple of tenths up in Merced County. Snow amounts will be limited to just a few inches during this period and snow levels will be quite high. Temperatures are progged to trend to near seasonal averages by Thursday, then back down just a few degrees Friday.

A more significant developing system is on track to bring more impactful precipitation to our area for the beginning of next week. Ensemble model runs are showing a good likelihood that this developing system will drop southward from the Gulf of Alaska Sunday and Monday then swing inland over California Tuesday. Total rainfall accumulations around 1 inch are probable in the SJ Valley, with up to 3 inches in the foothills, and 5 inches or more at the higher elevations. Snow levels will be quite high with this event, running around 8 to 9 thousand feet, but where there is snow, accumulations up to a couple of feet will be probable. Recent burn scars will also be subject to increased runoff from the expected rainfall. Precipitation totals will be lower farther south, but still significant. Kern County mountains should see around 1/2 to 1 inch of rainfall, while desert areas can expect 2 to 3 tenths.
