AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
437 PM PDT FRI JUL 25 2014

.UPDATE...UPDATED AIR QUALITY SECTION.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN ANCHORED OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST THROUGH
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN CONTINUED WARM
TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE AREA. SOUTHERLY FLOW AROUND THE HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BRING MONSOON MOISTURE STARTING SUNDAY...INCREASING
THE THREAT OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA
NEVADA FOR MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...LARGE UPPER RIDGE RETROGRADING WESTWARD OVER THE
SOUTHWESTERN CONUS ALONG WITH REDUCED P-GRADS HAVE PROVIDED OUR
AREA WITH A PRONOUNCED WARMING TREND TODAY WITH TEMPERATURES
RUNNING 4-7 DEG F ABOVE YDAY ACROSS MOST OF OUR CWFA. THE HIGH IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH SATURDAY WITH A DRY SOUTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT PREVAILING OVER CENTRAL CA. MEANWHILE A SURGE OF
TROPICAL MOISTURE PUSHED INTO SOCAL EARLY THIS MORNING PROVIDING
THE SAN DIEGO AREA WITH SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
HOWEVER...THE ONLY IMPACT NOTICED OVER OUR AREA HAS BEEN THE
PRESENCE OF SOME THIN HIGH CLOUDS AS THE MOISTURE HAS BEEN HELD IN
CHECK TO OUR SOUTH BY THE SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT.

12Z WRF INDICATING LITTLE CHANGE IN THE OVER ALL PATTERN ON
SATURDAY WITH MID LEVEL DEW POINT PROGGED TO REMAIN LOW. AS A
RESULT...EXPECT ANOTHER DRY DAY ACROSS OUR AREA WITH SOME HIGH
CLOUDS AND TEMPERATURES SIMILAR TO TODAY/S READING WITH WIDESPREAD
TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT BEING FELT ACROSS THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND THE KERN COUNTY DESERTS.

BY SUNDAY THE FLOW ALOFT IS EXPECTED TO TURN TO THE SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR SOME UPPER LEVEL TROPICAL MOISTURE
TO STREAM INTO CENTRAL CA WITH THE MAIN IMPACT BEING THE INCREASED
PRESENCE OF HIGH CLOUDS. 850 MB DEW POINTS ARE ONLY PROGGED TO BE
BETWEEN -2 AND 2 DEG C ON SUNDAY OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND
KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS WHILE CAPE AND INSTABILITY ARE
PROGGED TO NOT BE SUFFICIENT ENOUGH FOR CONVECTION EXCEPT OVER THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA. THEREFORE
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF
THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA ON SUNDAY. WRF INDICATING A WEAK UPPER
LEVEL WAVE IS PROGGED TO TRACK NORTHWARD THROUGH OUR AREA ON
SUNDAY NIGHT AND EARLY MONDAY SO HAVE INTRODUCED A SLIGHT CHANCE
OF SHOWERS FOR THE CREST OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA FOR THAT
PERIOD. THE STRONGEST SURGE OF UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE WILL IMPACT
OUR AREA ON MONDAY...BUT MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL STILL NOT BE
SUFFICIENT ENOUGH FOR PRECIPITATION EXCEPT OVER THE SOUTHERN
SIERRA NEVADA.

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS INDICATE THE UPPER HIGH REMAINING PARKED
OVER NEW MEXICO FOR MOST OF NEXT WEEK WITH LITTLE FLUCTUATION IN
DIURNAL TEMPERATURES AT LEAST THROUGH MID WEEK WITH TRIPLE DIGIT
READINGS EXPECTED EACH AFTERNOON ACROSS MOST OF THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND THE KERN COUNTY DESERTS.
RH PROGS ARE INDICATING ENOUGH UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE OVER THE AREA
FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF DIURNAL THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA OTHERWISE OUR AREA IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN DRY NEXT WEEK. A WEAK UPPER TROUGH IS PROGGED
TO APPROACH TO COAST BY LATE NEXT WEEK WHICH MAY ALLOW FOR A
SLIGHT COOLING TREND TO TAKE PLACE...BUT TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO REMAIN ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

&&

.AIR QUALITY ISSUES...
ON SATURDAY JULY 26 2014... UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS IN
FRESNO... KERN AND MADERA COUNTIES AND SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK AND
FOREST.

&&

.DISCUSSION...SEASONABLY MILD OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES CONTINUE...WITH
JUST SOME HIGH CLOUDS DRIFTING OVERHEAD IN SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT
BETWEEN THE SOUTHWEST US UPPER RIDGE AND THE EAST PACIFIC TROUGH.
MODELS PROG THE RIDGE TO CONTINUE EXPANDING WESTWARD DURING THE
NEXT FEW DAYS...PROVIDING DRY AND WARMING CONDITIONS INTO THE
WEEKEND. EXPECT WIDESPREAD TRIPLE DIGIT HIGHS TODAY ACROSS THE
VALLEY...DESERT AND LOWER FOOTHILL AREAS. THESE WARM CONDITIONS
WITH TEMPERATURES RUNNING AROUND 3-6 DEGREES ABOVE CLIMO ARE
EXPECTED TO LAST THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. THERE IS
REASONABLY GOOD MODEL CONSENSUS IN THEN DEVELOPING A TROUGH ALONG
THE WEST COAST AND WEAKENING THE RIDGE FOR A FEW DEGREES OF

IN ADDITION TO WARMING TEMPERATURES...AS THE CURRENT DRY
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW TURNS MORE SOUTH AND SOUTHEASTERLY AROUND THE
EXPANDING RIDGE...MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL BEGIN TO BRUSH OUR

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
518 PM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.UPDATE...FOR AIR QUALITY SECTION

.SYNOPSIS...MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS HIGH PRESSURE
PREVAILS. A WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...UPPER HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST AND A
DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT ARE PROVIDING OUR AREA WITH CLEAR SKIES
AND SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES TODAY. 12Z WRF INDICATES THE HIGH WILL
CONTINUE TO RETROGRADE WESTWARD ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY RESULTING
IN A CONTINUED WARMING TREND ACROSS OUR AREA EACH DAY. BY
SATURDAY...AFTERNOON HIGHS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE TRIPLE DIGITS
AGAIN OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AS
WELL AS OVER THE KERN COUNTY DESERTS.

THE 12Z WRF INDICATES THAT THE FLOW ALOFT WILL TURN TO THE SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST BY SUNDAY WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR INCREASED UPPER LEVEL
MOISTURE TO STREAM INTO OUR AREA. RH PROGS ARE NOT SHOWING MUCH IN
THE WAY OF MID LEVEL MOISTURE HOWEVER...SO ANY THUNDERSTORMS THE
POP UP ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON WILL BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA.

MEDIUM RANGE MODELS ARE SHOWING LITTLE CHANGE IN THE PATTERN
THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT
SOUTHWEST WILL CONTINUE TO BE OUR MAIN WEATHER FEATURE OF CONCERN.
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO RUN ABOVE NORMAL AND SOME UPPER
LEVEL TROPICAL MOISTURE WILL STREAM NORTHWARD INTO OUR AREA ALONG
THE BACK SIDE OF THE HIGH AND PROVIDE FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
DIURNAL THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY THROUGH LATE NEXT WEEK OVER THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
518 PM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.UPDATE...FOR AIR QUALITY SECTION

.SYNOPSIS...MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS HIGH PRESSURE
PREVAILS. A WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...UPPER HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST AND A
DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT ARE PROVIDING OUR AREA WITH CLEAR SKIES
AND SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES TODAY. 12Z WRF INDICATES THE HIGH WILL
CONTINUE TO RETROGRADE WESTWARD ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY RESULTING
IN A CONTINUED WARMING TREND ACROSS OUR AREA EACH DAY. BY
SATURDAY...AFTERNOON HIGHS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE TRIPLE DIGITS
AGAIN OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AS
WELL AS OVER THE KERN COUNTY DESERTS.

THE 12Z WRF INDICATES THAT THE FLOW ALOFT WILL TURN TO THE SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST BY SUNDAY WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR INCREASED UPPER LEVEL
MOISTURE TO STREAM INTO OUR AREA. RH PROGS ARE NOT SHOWING MUCH IN
THE WAY OF MID LEVEL MOISTURE HOWEVER...SO ANY THUNDERSTORMS THE
POP UP ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON WILL BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA.

MEDIUM RANGE MODELS ARE SHOWING LITTLE CHANGE IN THE PATTERN
THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT
SOUTHWEST WILL CONTINUE TO BE OUR MAIN WEATHER FEATURE OF CONCERN.
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO RUN ABOVE NORMAL AND SOME UPPER
LEVEL TROPICAL MOISTURE WILL STREAM NORTHWARD INTO OUR AREA ALONG
THE BACK SIDE OF THE HIGH AND PROVIDE FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
DIURNAL THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY THROUGH LATE NEXT WEEK OVER THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

325 AM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS.
A WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN TODAY...AND CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE PUSHING THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST THIS
MORNING. AS THE DISTURBANCE EXITS THE WEST COAST...THE REGION WILL
SEE THE RETURN OF THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE RETROGRADE BACK TO THE
AREA. SATELLITE FOG PRODUCT IMAGERY SHOWING THE STRATUS WELL
OFFSHORE THIS MORNING AS THE WIND/TEMP PROFILER SHOWS A DISRUPTED
MARINE LAYER AT FORT ORD. WHILE THE SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT FROM
SFO TO LAS THIS MORNING WAS AT AROUND 11MB...THE MARINE AIR
INTRUSION INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA IS DIMINISHING WITH TEMPERATURES
EXPECTED TO RISE IN THE COMING DAYS. AGAIN...THE UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE PUSHED THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WITH LITTLE
POTENTIAL FOR PRECIP OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.

WHILE THE REGION WILL TRANSITION TO A WARMING ENVIRONMENT...THE
TRANSITION WILL BE SLOW ONE AS THE HIGH PRESSURE CENTER IS NOT
EXPECTED OVER THE FOUR CORNERS AREA UNTIL SATURDAY. THEREFORE...
FRIDAY WILL REMAIN DRY UNDER A WEAK ONSHORE FLOW PATTERN WITH
TEMPERATURES RISING BY A FEW DEGREES. MODELS THEN PROG THE FLOW
ALOFT TO SHIFT TO A MORE SOUTHEASTERLY DIRECTION BY THIS WEEKEND.
AT WHICH TIME...SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE WILL BEGIN A NORTHERLY SURGE.
MODELS SHOW THE DISTRICT BEGINNING TO MOISTEN-UP LATE FRIDAY WITH
AROUND 0.75 OF AN INCH PRECIP-WATER TOWARD SUNDAY. THEREFORE...
WILL KEEP THE MENTION OF PRECIP (THUNDERSTORMS) CONFINED TO THE
SIERRA NEVADA (AND TEHACHAPI/S)...FOR MUCH OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

BY MONDAY...HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WELL IN CONTROL OF THE WEST. WHILE
HOT TEMPERATURES WILL SEEN BY SATURDAY...THE HOT CONDITIONS WILL
CONTINUE INTO NEXT WEEK. EVEN WITH WEAK SHORT-WAVE TROF/S RIDING
OVER THE RIDGE PATTERN...THE RIDGE WILL NOT BREAK DOWN INTO THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. THEREFORE...WILL SEE LITTLE CHANGE IN THE
WEATHER ONCE TEMPERATURES BEGIN HITTING THE CENTURY MARK.
FURTHERMORE...MODELS SHOW A CONTINUATION OF SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE
SURGING INTO CALIFORNIA FOR MUCH OF NEXT WEEK. WITH THIS...WILL SEE
KEEP A MENTION OF MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH AT LEAST
THURSDAY.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
953 PM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.UPDATE...
LOWERED TEMPERATURE FOR THE SOUTH END OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
THURSDAY.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS.
A WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN ON THURSDAY AND CONTINUE INTO THE
WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
THE PUSH OF MARINE AIR INTO THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY TUESDAY NIGHT
BROUGHT STRONG COOLING TO THE LOWER ELEVATIONS. THE HIGH AT
BAKERSFIELD TODAY WAS ONLY 89 DEGREES...DOWN 9 DEGREES FROM TUESDAY
AND ONLY 3 DEGREES ABOVE THE RECORD LOW MAXIMUM FOR JULY 23RD OF 86
DEGREES...SET IN 1903. FRESNO HAD A LATE HIGH OF 93 DEGREES...DOWN 4
DEGREES FROM TUESDAY.

THE FORECAST CONCERN THIS EVENING IS THE IMPACT OF THE POOL OF
MARINE AIR TRAPPED OVER THE SOUTH END OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY.
HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF KERN AND SOUTHERN
TULARE COUNTIES WILL BE STRONGLY DEPENDENT ON HOW QUICKLY THE MARINE
AIR POOL IS MIXED OUT. WITH LITTLE CHANGE IN THE UPPER-LEVEL PATTERN
OVER CALIFORNIA THURSDAY...AND A LIGHT OFFSHORE FLOW FORECAST FOR
THE LOWER ELEVATIONS...DO NOT SEE A MECHANISM THAT WOULD COMPLETELY
SCOUR THE MARINE AIR OUT OF THE SOUTH END OF THE VALLEY. FOR THIS
REASON...HAVE LOWERED HIGH TEMPERATURES A COUPLE OF DEGREES OVER
FRESNO COUNTY...AND STRONGER COOLING FURTHER SOUTH WITH BAKERSFIELD
NOT GETTING OUT OF THE MID 90S /ALTHOUGH STILL 5 DEGREES WARMER THAN
TODAY/.

DID NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES ABOVE THE VALLEY FLOOR AS THESE AREAS WILL
BE ABOVE THE LINGERING IMPACT OF THE MARINE AIR POOL.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

&&

.PREV DISC... /ISSUED ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SACRAMENTO CA/

DISCUSSION...
STRONG UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE CENTER OFF THE PAC NW COAST IS
PROVIDING PLENTY OF DRY AIR ACROSS THE REGION. FOUR CORNERS HIGH
PRESSURE CENTER WILL REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. COOLER TEMPS AND DRIER CONDITIONS ACROSS THE SJV TODAY AS
ONSHORE FLOW IS IN CONTROL. BAGGY TROUGH HANGING BACK OVER THE
EPAC IS EXPECTED TO RETROGRADE TO THE WEST AS FOUR CORNER RIDGE
WILL BUILD WEST AS WELL. GRADUAL WARMING TREND THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND CONTINUING INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. STEADY ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPS ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA FROM FRIDAY THROUGH MID WEEK NEXT
WEEK.

SUB TROPICAL MOISTURE COMING AROUND THE BASE TO THE RIDGE THROUGH
NRN MEXICO MAY MAKE ITS WAY INTO THE CENTRAL VALLEY STARTING
SUNDAY AND CONTINUING THROUGH WEDNESDAY. MODELS ARE NOT IN STRONG
AGREEMENT IN TIMING AND INTENSITY OF MOISTURE...BUT WE ARE SEEING
SOME GOOD SIGNALS FOR A RETURN FOR MOISTURE INTO THE AREA FOR
POSSIBLE CONVECTION ACROSS THE SIERRA AND INTO THE TEHACHAPI
RANGE.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SACRAMENTO CA
233 PM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS.
A WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN ON THURSDAY AND CONTINUE INTO THE
WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE CENTER OFF THE PAC NW COAST IS
PROVIDING PLENTY OF DRY AIR ACROSS THE REGION. FOUR CORNERS HIGH
PRESSURE CENTER WILL REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. COOLER TEMPS AND DRIER CONDITIONS ACROSS THE SJV TODAY AS
ONSHORE FLOW IS IN CONTROL. BAGGY TROUGH HANGING BACK OVER THE
EPAC IS EXPECTED TO RETROGRADE TO THE WEST AS FOUR CORNER RIDGE
WILL BUILD WEST AS WELL. GRADUAL WARMING TREND THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND CONTINUING INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. STEADY ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPS ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA FROM FRIDAY THROUGH MID WEEK NEXT
WEEK.

SUB TROPICAL MOISTURE COMING AROUND THE BASE TO THE RIDGE THROUGH
NRN MEXICO MAY MAKE ITS WAY INTO THE CENTRAL VALLEY STARTING
SUNDAY AND CONTINUING THROUGH WEDNESDAY. MODELS ARE NOT IN STRONG
AGREEMENT IN TIMING AND INTENSITY OF MOISTURE...BUT WE ARE SEEING
SOME GOOD SIGNALS FOR A RETURN FOR MOISTURE INTO THE AREA FOR
POSSIBLE CONVECTION ACROSS THE SIERRA AND INTO THE TEHACHAPI
RANGE.

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

252 AM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE REGION AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS.
A WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN ON THURSDAY AND CONTINUE INTO THE
WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...UPPER LOW OFF THE PAC NW COASTLINE CONTINUES TO MOVE
SOUTHEAST...PUSHING THE FOUR CORNERS HIGH EAST AND ALLOWING FOR
THE CONTINUED COOLER AIRMASS TO DOMINATE THE REGION. ONE SIGNIFICANT
DIFFERENCE TONIGHT COMPARED TO LAST NIGHT IS THE LACK OF MID AND
HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS. MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES ALLOWED TEMPERATURES TO
FALL INTO THE MID 60S TO MID 70S AS OF 2 AM...BETWEEN 2 AND 5
DEGREES COOLER COMPARED TO 24 HRS AGO.

ONE LAST DAY OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES IS IN STORE FOR THE
AREA THIS AFTERNOON...WITH VALLEY TEMPERATURES GENERALLY IN THE
MID 90S. THE COOLER MARINE INFLUENCE WILL HAVE NO IMPACT ON THE
DESERT LOCATIONS...WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO WARM WELL
OVER THE 100 DEGREE MARK.

THE UPPER LOW WILL SHIFT QUICKLY NORTHEAST INTO CANADA LATE
TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY MORNING...ALLOWING THE FOUR CORNERS HIGH TO
SHIFT WEST. A FEW VALLEY LOCATIONS WILL TOP OUT AROUND THE CENTURY
MARK ON THURSDAY...WHILE THE REST OF THE VALLEY WILL REMAIN IN
THE MID TO UPPER 90S.

MORE SIGNIFICANT WARMING WILL TAKE PLACE ON FRIDAY...WITH 850 MB
TEMPERATURES WARMING BETWEEN 2 AND 3 DEGREES C THROUGH THE REGION.
THIS WILL RESULT IN SURFACE TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO THE 100-104
DEGREE RANGE...WITH DESERT LOCATIONS TOPPING OUT AROUND 110. THESE
TEMPERATURES ARE A FEW DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE END OF JULY.

THE UPPER LEVEL FLOW...WHICH HAS BEEN PREDOMINATELY SOUTHWEST...IS
FORECAST TO BECOME LIGHT AND SOUTH TO SOUTHEASTERLY AS EARLY AS
SATURDAY...BUT MORE LIKELY BY SUNDAY. THIS FLOW WILL ALLOW
MONSOONAL MOISTURE TO ONCE AGAIN MOVE NORTH INTO THE
AREA...BRINGING AT LEAST A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE
SIERRA CREST SUNDAY INTO THE FIRST PART OF THE WEEK. THE GFS HAS
SPED UP THE ARRIVAL OF THE MID LEVEL MOISTURE COMPARED TO THE 00Z
RUN FROM YESTERDAY...WITH THE MOISTURE NOW ARRIVING ON SATURDAY.
ALTHOUGH WE DID NOT ADD IN THUNDERSTORMS FOR SATURDAY...WE ARE
WATCHING THE TREND OF THE MODELS CLOSELY AND IT MAY BE ADDED IN
OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO. REGARDLESS...CONFIDENCE IS MEDIUM TO LOW
WITH THUNDERSTORM TIMING AS THE MOISTURE PLUME IS NOT AS
SIGNIFICANT AS THE PAST FEW MONSOONAL SURGES.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
