Synopsis Temperatures will remain above normal through at least
Saturday the warmest days Thursday and Friday. A cooling trend is
expected early next week with temperatures falling to near normal.
Dry weather will persist through the next seven days.
Visible satellite imagery shows sunny skies prevailing across the
central california interior as an upper ridge of high pressure over
the eastern pacific remains in control. 24 hour trends indicate a
few degrees of warming and afternoon highs are on track to top out
around 5-8 degrees above normal for much of the san joaquin valley.
An upper trough will drop down over the rockies on Wednesday and
bring some slight cooling to the high sierra, but little changes
elsewhere. The trough shifts east on Thursday as the upper ridge
builds inland over the west coast through Friday. This will bring
further warming with maximum temperatures on Thursday around 8-12
degrees above normal for late october. Models continue to show an
upper trough dropping over the pacific northwest on Saturday for
the start of a cooldown. More substantial cooling is expected
Sunday and Monday with temperatures forecast to be near normal by
early next week. Dry weather is expected to continue through the|
period. The latest deterministic ECMWF remains an outlier as it
digs the trough southwest over southern california Sunday night
into Monday and even paints a little QPF over the mountains.
The well above normal temperatures this Thursday and Friday will be
accompanied by low relative humidities and gusty easterly winds in
the kern county mountains. These elements in combination with very
dry fuels will likely create critical fire weather conditions in
the kern county mountains and a portion of sequoia national forest
in southeastern tulare county. Therefore, a fire weather watch has
been issued in these areas for Thursday and Friday.
Aviation Local MVFR visibility in mist haze in the san joaquin
valley between 13z and 17z Wednesday. Otherwise,VFR conditions
will prevail across the central ca interior through at least the
next 24 hours.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
