Area Forecast Discussion . Updated National Weather Service Hanford CA 345 PM PST Mon Jan 27 2020
Updated Air Quality Issues section
SYNOPSIS. Temperatures will run close to normal through Wednesday, then warming to above average by Friday through the weekend. Dry conditions will prevail across the area through the weekend with an increase for precipitation on Monday. Patchy morning fog in the San Joaquin Valley is possible Tuesday through Saturday.
DISCUSSION. NW flow over the region will keep the fog patchy tonight. Decent mixing aloft will limit fog development. Upper trough that moved through the region yesterday continues to dig over the four corners area and move east into the Mississippi Valley by Tuesday. Another system will move onshore into the PAC NW on Tuesday drop south into Mexico by Thursday. The CENCAL interior will remain under a weak ridge with nearly steady temperatures and dry conditions. Off shore flow could increase winds on Wednesday as high pressure builds into the Great Basin.
Large scale EPAC ridge will become more dominate over the forecast area starting Friday and continuing through the weekend with above normal temperatures and dry conditions. Models are advertising a strong cold front to move across the region on Monday with increased chances of Sierra snow and lower elevation rain. Tracks are not exactly the same but a decent signal for a pattern change is looking better for Monday of next week.
AVIATION. Areas of IFR/LIFR visibilities and ceilings with some mountain obscurations in upslope low clouds can be expected along the Valley facing side of the Tulare county and Kern county mountains through 03Z Tuesday. Patchy areas of MVFR visibilities in mist with local IFR in fog are possible in the San Joaquin Valley through 15Z Tuesday Elsewhere. VFR conditions are expected over the central California interior during 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.
