area forecast discussion
national weather service sacramento ca
203 pm pdt Fri aug 23 2019

Synopsis
Above average temperatures are expected through mid-week. Dry
weather pattern continues. A return to average temperatures may be
seen late next week.

Discussion
Current satellite analysis depicts the upper high located just off
the coast of northern california, with clear skies and fair
weather seen over the forecast area. Valley temperatures will
continue to heat up into the upper 90s and low 100s, with mountain
temperatures in the 70s to low 80s.

High pressure will continue to expand across the west coast
through early next week with Monday one of the hottest days of the
week. High temperatures will be anywhere from 5 to 12 degrees
above average for this time of year. Overnight lows Monday into
Tuesday in the northern sacramento valley may only fall into the
low 70s which could lead to issues for any groups sensitive to
heat. Lows through the weekend and Monday night in the southern
sacramento valley will recover into the mid to upper 60s.

Extended discussion (Tuesday through Friday)
Another hot day will be seen Tuesday with many valley locations
reaching or exceeding 100 degrees by the afternoon. The ridge will
be pushed east as an upper low moves northeast towards the
california coast Tuesday into Wednesday. The slight troughing off
the coast will cool temperatures down a couple degrees Wednesday,
with back to average temperatures expected by late week. A weak
wave traverses norcal Thursday, but the best chances for
precipitation continue to be south and east of the area. Have
continued the prevailing dry forecast for now.

Aviation
Vfr conditions continue over northern california over the next 24
hours. Surface winds will be generally 12 kt or less except
local gusts up to 25 kt in the delta overnight and over higher
terrain through 06z.

Sto watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
