Ridge of high pressure remains over central california today,
meaning another day of 100 + degree heat. This warming trend will
continue early next week, with Tuesday being the hottest day of
the week. Modest cooling trend starting Wednesday due to an upper
level trough weakening the ridge over california. Additionally,
there is a slight chance of afternoon convection over the sierra
nevada Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
Upper ridge will lead to continued hot weather across the central
california interior as well as the mojave desert, with widespread
high temperatures today at or slightly above 100 degrees. For
Monday, ridging continues over the district, and afternoon highs
will likely be a degree or two warmer. Tuesday will be the hottest
day of the work week in the san joaquin valley, with max
temperatures ranging from around 101 to 104 degrees. High
temperatures in the mojave desert will also be quite hot, with
highs in the 104-109 degree range. By Wednesday, an upper trough
will impinge on the northwestern periphery of the california
ridge, weakening it some. There is a chance some marine cooled air
will make it into the san joaquin valley with the trough by
Wednesday or Thursday. These factors will lead to a modest cooling|
trend through the end of the work week, leading to afternoon
highs generally in the mid to upper 90s Thursday through next
Regarding the chance of showers and thunderstorms, models are
indicating that there is a slight chance convection over the
sierra nevada by Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday afternoon also
entails a slight chance of afternoon convection over the sierra
crests. Elsewhere, expect dry weather to continue through the
Aviation Vfr conditions can be expected over the central
california interior during the next 24 hours.

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.
