Expect quiet weather through this week and into the coming
weekend. Warm and dry conditions continue along with typical late
day breezes. Temperatures dip a few degrees Thursday, but
generally remain within a few degrees of average this week before
heating up again by the weekend. The pattern begins to change next
week with the possibility of thunderstorms returning by the
middle of next week.
Changes to the short term part of the forecast were minimal today.
A longwave trough should move into the pacific northwest later
today. Ahead of this trough we are likely to see an increase in
winds... Especially north of interstate 80. Gusts could briefly
top 30 mph in some isolated areas. This... Combined with low
relative humidity... May lead to brief periods of low end critical
fire weather conditions... But these conditions will not be very
widespread and should only last a couple of hours.
Low- to mid-level moisture and instability do not appear sufficient
to add showers to areas near the oregon border... But clouds will
As the trough... And a weak cool front... Move through this evening
the winds will shift to the north-northeast. East winds are
possible Thursday. The wind shift may lead to some smoke from the
springs fire possibly impacting the mammoth lakes area. Of
course... That also depends on how active any burning is today and
tonight. That is something we cannot forecast. Temperatures will
cool a few degrees Thursday as well.|
The longwave trough moves east Friday and flat ridging begins to
build. That will push temperatures well above normal again. There
could also be a brief period of enhanced winds late Friday
afternoon as another weak wave brushes by well to the north. Xx
Long term Saturday through the end of august.
Above average temperatures with usual afternoon breezes are forecast
for the weekend. Isolated critical fire weather conditions are
possible for a few hours in the afternoons with most areas seeing
gusts up to around 25 mph.
Going into next week, a strong high pressure ridge is forecast to
build off the west coast. Along with continued above average
temperatures, this may allow moisture back into the region from
the south with thunderstorms becoming increasingly likely by the
mid to end of next week. -zach
A weak trough brushing the region will bring some increased mid-
level clouds today and shift winds to the northeast on Thursday.
Otherwise, expectVFR conditions with usual late afternoon
westerly zephyr winds each afternoon gusting 20-25 kts. -zach

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.
