. Update to Air Quality Section .
SYNOPSIS. Scattered afternoon thunderstorms over the Sierra Nevada from Tulare County northward are possible this Tuesday afternoon. The area will see clearing for the remainder of the week. Normal to above normal afternoon highs will continue across the valley for the next week.
DISCUSSION. Isolated thunderstorms have developed along the sierra high country this afternoon. Storms moving slowly east as mid level flow is more west due to a trough moving through the PacNW. Little convective potential expected Wednesday due to upper flow turning more SW bringing a drier and stable flow across central CA.
Models bring a surge of tropical moisture from hurricane Elida located WSW of Los Cabos at the moment. This will be the wild- card on possible moisture surging toward Central California this week. Models prog the tropical moisture quickly surging north due to moderate southerly flow in between a trough off the CA coast and an anticyclone over the SW. The surge of moisture will enter the region during Thursday morning when the atmosphere is more stable and may not amount to anything more than lots of cloud cover which could keep temperatures much cooler than forecasted. GFS model starting to show some light rainfall possible towards the Tehachapi mountains and high desert area Thursday morning. Thus some sprinkles or light rain at time can not be ruled out. The remnant tropical low phases with the offshore trough off the CA coast Thursday night and quickly races north over NCal Friday. The ridge will build further north over the S Great Basin and strengthen over SCal for the weekend. This will bring an extended heat wave for much of CA for the weekend and may continue for much of next week.
AVIATION. Isolated thunderstorms can be expected near the Sierra crest through 03z Wednesday. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail over the central California interior during the next 24 hours.

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.
