Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 347 AM PDT Thu Jul 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. A strong upper level ridge of high pressure centered over the Desert Southwest will bring dry weather, generally light winds and above normal temperatures to the district during the next 7 days. Widespread triple digit heat can be expected in the San Joaquin Valley, lower foothills and the Kern County desert Friday through Tuesday.

DISCUSSION. "Hot and dusty" are the words that adequately describe the weather over the central California interior during the next 7 days. In fact, the San Joaquin Valley, lower foothills and the Kern County desert are in for another lengthy spell of triple digit heat, possibly the longest stretch yet this year. Thermometer readings will top the century mark in a handful of locations this afternoon. The atmosphere is going to heat up a bit more in the days that follow as a strong upper level ridge of high pressure anchors itself over Arizona and New Mexico. The marine layer along the central California coast is shallower this morning compared to 24 hours ago . just under 1000 feet deep at Fort Ord. That's a good sign that the upper level ridge of high pressure is already building into the Golden State. We'll be firmly in its grip by Sunday and Monday. Those days will be the hottest days of the upcoming heat wave with highs of 104 to 109 degrees in the San Joaquin Valley and between 105 and 112 degrees in the Kern County desert.

After Monday, the models forecast the center of this ridge to shift eastward into the southern Plains states. It will take the edge off the heat by Tuesday as it loosens its grip over the CWA. Nontheless, high temperatures Tuesday through next Thursday will still average slightly above normal. A light southerly flow during this time could bring some mid level moisture northward into the mountains and desert by next Thursday as well. We're not very certain that this moisture will be substantial enough to generate mountain convection by then, but it will be something we may have to monitor. Otherwise, our pattern will remain relatively stable and dry. As the air stagnates under the ridge this weekend, the San Joaquin Valley could experience worsening air quality. Additionally, if any new fires break out in the days to come, the smoke they generate will become trapped under the inversion each night.

As tempting and inviting as area rivers might be to seek cooling relief from hot weather in the days ahead, it's not advisable. The waters in them are relatively cold and carry swift undercurrents, especially now that most reservoirs are releasing larger amounts of water into them. No matter how experienced of a swimmer you are, the strong currents can easily overpower you and carry you into dangerous areas of the river. Don't risk your safety and end up as the victim of a water rescue or drowning!

AVIATION. VFR conditions will prevail over the central California 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.
