Synopsis Dry weather will continue over the central california
interior for the next several days. High temperatures will trend
slightly warmer through midweek then average cooler than normal
Thursday through the weekend. The nights will be seasonably chilly
through the period.
Weak upper trough has moved through the region with cooler
temperatures today than yesterday by 3-6 degrees. Dry conditions
prevailed as the trough was moisture starved. Todays cooldown will
be short lived as the epac ridge will nose into norcal tomorrow.
Breezy conditions are possible across merced county tonight with
the upper jet coming across. We should see temps warming back to
near normal conditions tomorrow and Wednesday with mostly clear
skies and light winds.
A very impressive cyclone in the gulf of alaska will swing an
occluded front through the region by Wednesday night. Once again,
the front will be moisture starved and we are not forecasting any
precipitation with the front. The most noticeable change will be
another drop in temperatures and gusty winds. We are looking at
around 8-12 degree drop for Thursday's high temperatures from
Wednesday's high temperatures. A few high clouds are possible as
the front passes through Wednesday night and Thursday morning.|
Winds will pick up across kern county and will enhance fire
weather concerns across this region where fuel moisture values
are very low. The good news is that rh values will not be in the
single digits as they have been over the past several days. So
hopefully this will help mitigate any significant fire threats.
The upcoming weekend looks very nice with highs in the low to mid
70's in the san joaquin valley and kern county desert regions.
Prevailing NW upper flow through the weekend will keep the region
cool and dry. The morning lows in the sjv will be in the low to
mid 40s over most of the rural areas. It will feel more like fall
behind this cold front. The epac ridge will start to edge back
into ca by Monday with a gradual warming trend of 4-7 degrees
in the sjv.
Aviation Vfr conditions can be expected over the central
california interior for 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.
