SYNOPSIS. Temperatures for Thursday and Friday will increase back to well above seasonal averages, with dry conditions. A storm system will bring a chance of wet weather to mainly the higher elevations Saturday.
DISCUSSION. Temperatures across the central California interior are noticeable cooler today. This is mostly due to both synoptic cooling with the passing upper low, as well as extensive cloud cover across the region. Very little to no precipitation has occurred with this system as the best dynamics/deeper moisture has remained well to the south. Clouds will clear out this evening/overnight, and Thursday morning low temperatures will between 3 to 6 degrees cooler compared to this morning.
Looking through Thursday, the High Resolution Ensemble Forecast (HREF) quickly kicks this upper level low toward the four-corners area, with shortwave ridging moving back into the region. The HREF then continues to build this ridge over the southwest US through at least Friday morning. Strong synoptic warming during this period (500mb temps up ~10C, 500 heights up ~180m) will allow for afternoon temperatures to increase back into 70s for the valley and desert for Thursday and Friday.
For Saturday and Sunday, we could see a return of wet weather to at least some portions of the district. There is currently solid consensus between the EPS/CMCE/GEFS, with all ensembles bringing a shortwave trough into NorCal on Saturday. Ensembles then both weaken and quickly kick this trough into the northern Rockies on Sunday. With this northern track of the upper level trough, the greatest chance of precipitation across the district will remain in the Sierra Nevada mountains and foothills, mostly from Tulare county northward into Merced and Mariposa counties. Also, the majority of any measureable precipitation with this system will be overnight Friday into Saturday morning.
For the start of next week, output from the NAEFS indicates that the western US will see a return to trough pattern. Confidence into precipitation will remains low, but temperatures do look to trend back toward climatology.
AVIATION. A passing low pressure system will bring some mainly light precipitation over the mountains today VFR conditions will prevail across Central California for at least the next 24 hours.
