UPDATE. Updated air quality issues section.
SYNOPSIS. Strong, gusty west to northwest winds are likely through and below Mojave desert slopes this afternoon into tonight. A warming trend is expected Monday and Tuesday. By Tuesday afternoon, high temperatures will be seven to nine degrees above normal for this time of year. A downward temperature trend is expected Wednesday and Thursday.
DISCUSSION. West to northwest wind gusts near 55 mph are probable through and below Mojave desert slopes this afternoon into tonight. The most intense wind gusts are likely this evening. As a result, a Wind Advisory is in effect until 10 PM PDT tonight. A trough of low pressure will move eastward into the Great Plains tonight. An Eastern Pacific ridge of high pressure will build eastward across Southern California Monday and Monday night. An anticyclone aloft will be centered over the Desert Southwest Tuesday and Tuesday night. A warming trend is anticipated Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures Monday afternoon will be around five degrees warmer than this afternoon. Maximum temperatures Tuesday afternoon will be seven to nine degrees above their typical values for the latter half of September. Triple digit heat probabilities Tuesday afternoon are as follows: 32 percent in Bakersfield, 28 percent in Fresno, 27 percent in Merced, and 20 percent in Hanford.
An Eastern Pacific trough of low pressure should approach the northern coast of California Wednesday. An upper-level area of low pressure will likely develop in the base of this trough Wednesday night. This cyclone aloft should move to the south-southwest Thursday and Friday, before kicking eastward next weekend. Specific impacts, such as wind gusts and potential precipitation, are muddled at this moment due to uncertainty in the exact strength and position of the upper-level area of low pressure. A downward temperature trend is anticipated Wednesday and Thursday. Be that as it may, high temperatures Thursday afternoon should be two to four degrees above normal for this time of year. A cooling trend is possible next weekend.
AVIATION. In the Sierra Nevada and Kern County mountains, areas of MVFR visibilities, with local mountain obscured IFR visibilities, are expected due to smoke and haze near active wildfires through at least the next 24 hours. In the San Joaquin Valley, intermittent MVFR visibilities are possible Monday due to haze.
AIR QUALITY ISSUES. On Monday, September 20th, 2021, Unhealthy in Sequoia National Park and Forest.
