300 pm pdt Thu jul 18 2019

Synopsis
Slight cooling tomorrow, followed by a slight warm up early next
week. Breezy winds through the delta and over the sierra crest at
times.

Discussion
Little in the way of sensible weather through the weekend. Dry
weather and mostly clear skies look to persist. Slightly cooler
temperatures will be seen tomorrow with highs ranging from the
upper 80s in the southern sacramento valley to the upper 90s in
the north. Slight troughing over the area will give way to an
amplifying high pressure over the great basin by late weekend.

Added a slight chance for an isolated thunderstorm over the sierra
crest over tuolumne apline counties Saturday night as the trough
moves out. The delta breeze continues through the weekend keeping
low temperatures around this area in the low 60s.

Extended discussion (Monday through Thursday)
12z GEFS 00z eps 5h height anomaly progs very similar in amplifying
the ridge axis of the 4-corners high well into the WRN half of
canada and into ak at the onset of the efp, followed by a flattening
of the ridge over NRN rockys WRN canada later next week. The
flattening of the ridge to our N results in a westward expansion of
the ridge offshore, replacing the weakening nern pac cyclone.

Seasonable temps forecast for Mon Tue with a warming trend into the
latter half of the week as 850 mbs temps warm into the mid 20s deg c
over much of our cwa. Dry adiabatic descent of these temps should
result in some triple digit heat in the vly from mid week into next
weekend. Daily MAX temps for smf from the GFS ensemble shows temps
in the upper 90s early in the week, reaching into the 100s Wed thru
the end of the month with a high of 105 on sat. Meanwhile, the
ecm ensemble shows temps in the mid 90s Mon tue, warming into the
upper 90s wed, then low 100s Thu through Sun with a high of 104 on
sat. During the 6-10 day, jul 23-27 period, the CPC has calculated
a 57% chance of a MAX hi (heat index) of 100, and 85-90% chance
of >100 (102+) at rbl and sck. These occurrences will more likely
occur near the end of this period and into the weekend.

A couple of surges of monsoon moisture are forecast during the
period, one on mon, and the other Wed thu, as the steering flow
strengthens around the 4-corners high. An increase in humidity is
likely with this moisture surge, and may also lead to convection
near the sierra crest, mainly S of the tahoe area. In general, the
sw flow aloft will keep the moisture shunted to the E side of our
cwa and will tend to carry storms to the NE of our cwa.

Expect strong thermal belts to develop in the foothills overnite
and some warm overnite mins in the 60s and 70s later in the week.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
