Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 402 AM PDT Fri Aug 14 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dangerously hot temperatures are expected for the weekend and into the majority of next week as a high pressure strengthens over the Great Basin. Afternoon t-storms are also possible for the higher elevations of the Sierra each day through at least Tuesday.

DISCUSSION. Current temperatures across the valley are 5 to 10 degrees warmer compared to this time yesterday. This is due to a fair amount of mid and upper level cloud cover from the remnants of Elida pushing northward through the district. Clouds will continue to dissipate this morning as our high temperatures begin to really ramp up this afternoon. With ample mid-level moisture and steep mid level lapse rates, there is a slight chance of afternoon showers and t-storms across the higher elevations of the Sierra.

The major story for our area starting today and going into a majority of next week will be dangerous heat across the central California interior. Deterministic models, as well as their respective ensemble solutions are all indicating that a very strong high pressure will remain situated over the central Great Basin through next week, with only some minor weakening by next Thursday and Friday. Afternoon high temperatures from today through next Friday will range from 102 to 112 in the Southern San Joaquin Valley, West Side Hills, lower elevations of the Sierra foothills, and Kern County desert. Afternoon temperatures up to 115 degrees are conceivable each day in the Indian Wells Valley. Low temperatures will also remain very warm during this period, with overnight readings in the 70s and low 80s in warmer locations. For this reason, an Excessive Heat Warning will be in effect from this afternoon through at least next Wednesday. Models are also indicating that mid-level moisture will continue to rotate northward around the periphery of the high pressure. Combined with mid-level instability will lead to a daily chance of afternoon t-storms for the higher elevations of the Southern Sierra through at least Tuesday.

AVIATION. Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the higher elevations of the Southern Sierra Nevada through 03z Friday. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail elsewhere over the central California interior during the next 24 hours.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES. On Friday August 14 2020 . Unhealthy for sensitive groups in Fresno and Kern Counties and Sequoia National Park and Forest. Further information is available at Valleyair.org

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.
