Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 450 AM PST Sat Jan 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. Seasonably mild conditions can be expected today, then rain and mountain snow possible Sunday mainly from Fresno County northward. Dry weather then returns as another ridge of high pressure builds over the region. Conditions will become favorable again for foggy mornings in the San Joaquin Valley during next week.

DISCUSSION. High clouds and moisture are streaming south and east across central CA over the top of a Pacific high pressure ridge. Meanwhile a layer of low level stratus covers portions of the SJ Valley, limiting the extent of significant fog development this morning. There is a strip of more dense fog developing from Kings County northward to Madera and Merced Counties. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for this area through noon today.

Today will be generally mild under the amplifying ridge ahead of an approaching low pressure trough. Model projections for this system have been trending weaker and less impactful for our area. Current progs show the trough and associated precipitation pushing southward into northern portions of central CA later tonight and continuing into Sunday afternoon. QPF remains mainly north of Kern County, with rainfall amounts around 1/10th of an inch or less in the Valley, up to 1/4 inch in the foothills and as much as 1/2 inch in the Sierra zones in the Yosemite vicinity. Snow levels start out around 8000 ft then fall as low around 6000 ft where an inch or so may accumulate. Highest elevations could see around 6 inches. Could see some mainly light upslope precip in the Kern County mountains Sunday afternoon and evening as the system pushes through. The passing trough will also bring increasing northwesterly winds Sunday afternoon into the evening, mainly through and below the Kern County mountain passes. Gusts are mostly expected to reach the 35 to 40 mph range.

Ridging returns for the first part of next week behind the departing system and ahead of a weak system expected to brush by to our north by Wednesday. Stronger ridging is then progged for the second half of the week. This will mean dry conditions with fog in the Valley and generally mild temperatures across our area for the period.

AVIATION. Areas of LIFR conditions in fog and stratus are likely in the San Joaquin Valley through 20z Saturday. Precipitaton spreading south into the region will bring areas of MVFR conditions and local mountain obscurations to the central California interior by 06Z Sunday. Otherwise VFR conditions expected over 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.
