Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 215 AM PDT Sun Mar 29 2020
SYNOPSIS. Another weak disturbance will pass through the area today leading to light precipitation and cool afternoon temperatures. Dry weather returns on Monday and will prevail throughout the upcoming week. A warming trend will result in near normal temperatures on Monday and above normal the rest of the week. Parts of the San Joaquin Valley and Kern County Desert are forecast to climb into the lower 80s next weekend.
DISCUSSION. Regional radar imagery shows light precipitation spreading inland ahead of a weak short wave trough positioned off the northern California coast. While several locations in the San Joaquin Valley have reported rainfall, amounts are no more than a trace to a couple hundredths of an inch thus far. Hi resolution models show scattered showers developing in the Sierra Nevada today and some activity pushing inland from the central coast this afternoon. But there is limited moisture for this system to work with. QPF is only a few hundredths to one tenth of an inch in the SJ Valley. Orographic effects should result in some better amounts in the Sierra, but still only up to one quarter of an inch, mainly around Yosemite NP. Snow is expected above 5000 feet where 1 to 3 inch accumulations could occur. Very little precipitation is expected into Kern County, with generally only a few hundredths of an inch, if anything. Showers will come to an end this evening as the trough shifts to our east. Dry weather is forecast on Monday and throughout the upcoming week.
An onshore surface pressure gradient will increase resulting in windy conditions through and below mountain passes in Kern County this afternoon and evening. Gusts do not look to reach advisory level in most areas, but gusts to around 40 mph will be possible. Temperatures will remain several degrees below normal today, with highs generally in the lower to mid 60s across the SJ Valley and Kern County Desert. A warming trend will begin in the wake of the trough with highs on Monday forecast to be near normal for the end of March. Warming will continue through the week resulting in highs several degrees above normal by Friday. Looking out farther sees forecast highs into the lower 80s in parts of the SJ Valley and Kern County Desert next weekend.
AVIATION. MVFR to IFR ceilings and visiblities in isolated showers across the San Joaquin Valley, primarily north of Kern County, through Sunday afternoon. IFR conditions and mountain obscuration in low clouds and showers for the Sierra Nevada and Kern County mountains through Sunday afternoon. Wind gusts up to 40 kts possible in the Kern County mountains and desert Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening. VFR conditions will prevail elsewhere over the central CA interior for the next 24 hours.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
