Synopsis A warming trend will continue with widespread triple
digit heat expected across the lower elevations through the week.
Monsoonal moisture moving into the region will bring a slight
chance of afternoon thunderstorms over the mountains each day.
Upper level ridge of high pressure over the four corners area
will slowly retrograde westward this week and temperatures will
climb accordingly. We are currently on the western side of the
ridge which promotes sub tropical moisture flow northward across
the forecast area. Afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms
are possible each day this week in the sierra. Some high and mid
clouds are possible from time to time. However it will not be
enough clouds to have a significant impact on sjv temperatures.
Models are in decent agreement for warming temperatures through the
week. The center of the ridge of high pressure is in decent|
agreement with the ensembles as well as the 00z deterministic
runs. Heat index levels (hil) are suggesting that heat levels may
approach values for a heat advisory Thursday through Sunday.
Critical value of 105 wont be reached until Thursday in fresno,
and both bakersfield and fresno Friday through Sunday. Confidence
has been set to medium because of the timing and intensity of the
afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the sierra each afternoon,
but we are pretty confident that it is going to get very hot.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
