Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 219 AM PDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Slightly warmer than average high temperatures look likely into the foreseeable future over the forecast area. Monsoonal moisture will provide the Sierra Nevada with a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms each day until Sunday.

DISCUSSION. The current pattern with warm weather and afternoon/evening mountain thunderstorms will continue until at least Sunday, though with some increase in coverage of showers and thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday. Areas impacted will include the Sierra Nevada foothills, the Kern County mountains/desert, and the east side of the San Joaquin Valley. Although, the east side of the Central Valley may not pick up much more than a sprinkle or a light shower in terms of rainfall. However, isolated thunderstorms could move into this area, especially if development occurs over the foothills due to the southeasterly flow aloft. The primary threats of thunderstorms will include brief heavy rainfall, dangerous lightning, and gusty, erratic winds.

The potential for flash flooding producing storms will become more favorable by Friday, with the greatest likelihood over the Sierra Nevada, as precipitable water (PWAT) will noticeably increase, per ensemble guidance in the short-term. It does not appear as favorable for today, as PWAT values are not expected to remain quite as high. However, expect another round of isolated thunderstorms over at least the higher elevations of the Sierra.

We are not expecting much change in temperatures over the next several days, and many locations will remain in the triple digits in terms of daily maxima for much of the period. However, the forecast for Saturday is a bit tricky, depending on cloud cover and storm development from the previous afternoon and evening. Overall, highs could reach the upper 90's in the Central Valley and the Kern County desert areas, though the warmest locations may still report readings around the century mark on Saturday. Probabilities of highs remaining in the triple digits are still around 45 to 50 percent for this weekend, per blended guidance.

As for next week, a drying trend is expected as the flow aloft turns to the southwest. However, the upper-level ridge will remain over much of the southern half of California and the Desert Southwest, so daily high temperatures will likely remain around 100 degrees in the warmest valley locations and 100 to 105 degrees in the Kern County desert. Overall, the first week of August will be seasonably warm, as this period, as well as much of the latter half of July, is the warmest time of the year in terms of climate.

AVIATION. Showers and isolated thunderstorms likely through 03Z Thur in the Sierra, primarily north of Sequoia National Park. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail through the next 24 hours.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES. On Thursday July 29 2021 . Unhealthy for sensitive groups in Fresno . Kern . Madera . Merced and Tulare Counties and Sequoia National Park and Forest. Further information is available at Valleyair.org
