AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
320 AM PDT TUE APR 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
DRY WEATHER AND ABOVE NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED
OVER THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR THROUGH THEN END OF THE WEEK.
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE SIERRA FOR THE
WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
CLEAR SKIES AND WARM TEMPERATURES WERE OBSERVED MONDAY AS A RIDGE
OF HIGH PRESSURE RESIDES OVER THE WEST. WHILE LITTLE CHANGE IN THE
WEATHER IS EXPECTED...FURTHER WARMING OF TEMPERATURES WILL BE
OBSERVED OVER THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR WITH MANY VALLEY
LOCATIONS REACH THE 90 DEG-F MARK THIS AFTERNOON. UPPER AIR
ANALYSIS IS ADDING SUPPORT FOR THE WARMING AS WINDS ALOFT SHOW AN
OFFSHORE WIND PATTERN. THEREFORE...WILL KEEP THE CURRENT
TEMPERATURE TREND AND EXPECT LOWER TO MID 90S ACROSS THE SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY TUESDAY WITH LITTLE CHANGE TO SLIGHTLY COOLER ON
WEDNESDAY.

THE SLIGHT COOLING ON WEDNESDAY WILL BE DUE TO A WEAK SHORT WAVE
TROF CLIPPING THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR ON WEDNESDAY. WHILE
MOISTURE WILL BE LIMITED AND THE BULK OF THE DYNAMICS WILL STAY
OVER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA...ENOUGH LIFT SHOULD PROVIDE FOR SOME
CLOUD COVER ON WEDNESDAY. IN ADDITION...WITH THE TROF BEING FORCED
TO PASS MAINLY NORTH OF THE DISTRICT...WILL NOT SEE STRONG WINDS
AS THE RIDGE PATTERN CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE REGION.
THEREFORE...AS MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW LITTLE CHANGE IN 850MB
TEMP/S...WILL NOT EXPECT A BIG COOL DOWN OR ENOUGH DYNAMICS FOR
ANY PRECIP POTENTIAL.

MODELS DO SHOW A PIECE OF ENERGY BREAKING OFF FROM THE MAIN FLOW
LATER IN THE WEEK. WHILE CONFIDENCE REMAIN ON THE LOWER SIDE FOR
PRECIP POTENTIAL...MODELS DO SIGNAL AN INCREASE POSSIBILITY. FOR
THE MOMENT...WILL MENTION A CHANCE OF PRECIP OVER THE SIERRA
NEVADA RANGE STARTING ON FRIDAY WHEN BOTH DETERMINISTIC AND
PROBABILISTIC MODELS EACH BEGIN INDICATING MOUNTAIN PRECIP. MODELS
DO SHOW THE CUT-OFF PIECE OF ENERGY SWINGS THROUGH THE WEST ON
SUNDAY...FOR THE START OF A COOL DOWN.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS AT ALL TERMINALS
WITH MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
210 PM PDT MON APR 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...DRY WEATHER AND ABOVE NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES
CAN BE EXPECTED OVER THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR THROUGH
THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A DRY UPPER RIDGE IS CONTINUING TO PUSH INLAND AND
IS PROVIDING OUR AREA WITH A MOSTLY SUNNY DAY ALONG WITH A
CONTINUED WARMING TREND. TEMPERATURES ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING 5-10
DEG F ABOVE YDAY ACROSS THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND THE KERN COUNTY
DESERTS AND 8-16 DEG F ABOVE YDAY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AS
THE RESULT IN CONTINUED RISES IN HEIGHTS AND THICKNESSES. 12Z WRF
INDICATING THE RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH INLAND AND STRENGTHEN
OVER CENTRAL CA ON TUESDAY RESULTING IN EVEN FURTHER WARMING FOR
OUR AREA WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS EXPECTED TO REACH THE LOWER 90S
ACROSS MUCH OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND KERN COUNTY DESERTS.

THE UPPER RIDGE AXIS IS PROGGED TOP SHIFT EAST OF OUR AREA AND
INTO THE DESERT SOUTHWEST ON WEDNESDAY RESULTING IN ONSHORE FLOW
OVER CENTRAL CA ALONG WITH LOWERING HEIGHTS. THIS WILL BRING A
SLIGHT COOLING TREND TO OUR AREA ON WEDNESDAY....BUT TEMPERATURES
ARE EXPECTED TO REBOUND SLIGHTLY ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AS THE
RIDGE REMAINS THE PREDOMINANT WEATHER FEATURE FOR OUR AREA WHILE
A WEAK UPPER TROUGH SETTLES OVER NORCAL.

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS ARE SHOWING A PIECE OF ENERGY BREAKING
OFF FROM THE TROUGH TO OUR NORTH ON FRIDAY AND DROPPING SOUTHWARD
OFF THE CA COAST OVER THE WEEKEND AND FORM A WEAK UPPER LOW. THIS
SYSTEM IS THEN PROGGED TO PUSH INLAND ACROSS SOCAL EARLY NEXT
WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN A GRADUAL COOLING TREND TAKING PLACE
OVER THE WEEKEND AND NEXT MONDAY...BUT TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THIS PERIOD. DESPITE THE
LACK OF DEEPER MOISTURE AND DYNAMICS PROGGED FOR OUR AREA...THERE
WILL BE ENOUGH DIFLUENT FLOW ALOFT AND INSTABILITY FOR ISOLATED
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE SOUTHERN
SIERRA CREST EACH DAY FROM FRIDAY ONWARD. THE REMAINDER OF OUR
AREA WILL REMAIN DRY.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS AT

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
322 AM PDT MON APR 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
DRY WEATHER AND ABOVE NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES CAN BE
EXPECTED OVER THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR THROUGH AT
LEAST THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE OVERALL WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE SIMPLISTIC AND
PRECIPITATION-FREE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS THE STORM TRACK
REMAINS WELL NORTH OF THE CWA. DURING THE NEXT 24 HRS...AN UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER CENTRAL CA AND BRING
A SIGNIFICANT WARMUP. TEMPERATURES ARE ALREADY TRENDING SEVERAL
DEGREES HIGHER COMPARED TO 24 HOURS AGO...ESPECIALLY OVER THE
SIERRA. OUR WARMEST DAY OF THE NEXT 7 DAYS WILL BE TUESDAY WHEN
THERMOMETER READINGS WILL LIKELY TOP THE NINETY DEGREE MARK
THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE SJ VLY AND LOWER FOOTHILLS. MAX TEMPS WILL
TREND SLIGHTLY LOWER WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS THE RIDGE AXIS
SHIFTS EASTWARD TO THE FOUR CORNERS REGION.

DURING MIDWEEK...THE MODELS FORECAST A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO
SLIDE INTO NORTHERN CA. THE TROUGH WILL SETTLE SOUTHWESTWARD AND
PARK ITSELF OFF THE CENTRAL CA COAST BY THUR NIGHT. AFTERWARD...
THE GFS AND ECM SOLNS DEVELOP THIS FEATURE INTO A CLOSED LOW AND
ANCHOR IT OFFSHORE FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ALTHOUGH THIS
SYSTEM WILL BE GREATLY LIMITED ON MOISTURE...A DIFLUENT FLOW ALOFT
COMBINED WITH WEAK INSTABILITY COULD SET OFF ISOLATED AFTERNOON OR
EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE SIERRA CREST BEGINNING
FRIDAY. SLIGHT CHANCE POPS WERE SPRINKLED IN ALONG THE SIERRA
CREST ACCORDINGLY IN THE 5 TO 7 DAY PD. OTHERWISE...DRY WEATHER
WILL BE THE RULE THIS WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES REMAINING ABOVE
SEASONAL NORMALS.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS AT ALL TERMINALS
WITH MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS.

&&

.AIR QUALITY ISSUES...
NONE.

&&

.CERTAINTY...

THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 1 AND 2 IS HIGH.
THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 3 THROUGH 7 IS HIGH.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
322 AM PDT MON APR 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
DRY WEATHER AND ABOVE NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES CAN BE
EXPECTED OVER THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR THROUGH AT
LEAST THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE OVERALL WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE SIMPLISTIC AND
PRECIPITATION-FREE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS THE STORM TRACK
REMAINS WELL NORTH OF THE CWA. DURING THE NEXT 24 HRS...AN UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER CENTRAL CA AND BRING
A SIGNIFICANT WARMUP. TEMPERATURES ARE ALREADY TRENDING SEVERAL
DEGREES HIGHER COMPARED TO 24 HOURS AGO...ESPECIALLY OVER THE
SIERRA. OUR WARMEST DAY OF THE NEXT 7 DAYS WILL BE TUESDAY WHEN
THERMOMETER READINGS WILL LIKELY TOP THE NINETY DEGREE MARK
THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE SJ VLY AND LOWER FOOTHILLS. MAX TEMPS WILL
TREND SLIGHTLY LOWER WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS THE RIDGE AXIS
SHIFTS EASTWARD TO THE FOUR CORNERS REGION.

DURING MIDWEEK...THE MODELS FORECAST A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO
SLIDE INTO NORTHERN CA. THE TROUGH WILL SETTLE SOUTHWESTWARD AND
PARK ITSELF OFF THE CENTRAL CA COAST BY THUR NIGHT. AFTERWARD...
THE GFS AND ECM SOLNS DEVELOP THIS FEATURE INTO A CLOSED LOW AND
ANCHOR IT OFFSHORE FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ALTHOUGH THIS
SYSTEM WILL BE GREATLY LIMITED ON MOISTURE...A DIFLUENT FLOW ALOFT
COMBINED WITH WEAK INSTABILITY COULD SET OFF ISOLATED AFTERNOON OR
EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE SIERRA CREST BEGINNING
FRIDAY. SLIGHT CHANCE POPS WERE SPRINKLED IN ALONG THE SIERRA
CREST ACCORDINGLY IN THE 5 TO 7 DAY PD. OTHERWISE...DRY WEATHER
WILL BE THE RULE THIS WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES REMAINING ABOVE
SEASONAL NORMALS.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS AT ALL TERMINALS
WITH MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS.

&&

.AIR QUALITY ISSUES...
NONE.

&&

.CERTAINTY...

THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 1 AND 2 IS HIGH.
THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 3 THROUGH 7 IS HIGH.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
233 PM PDT SUN APR 26 2015

.SYNOPSIS...DRY WEATHER AND A WARMING TREND WILL BE PRESENT OVER
THE REGION THROUGH AT LEAST THE MIDDLE OF THIS WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...AMPLIFYING UPPER RIDGE OFF THE CA COAST IS
INTERACTING WITH THE DEPARTED TROUGH THAT IMPACTED OUR AREA YDAY
TO PROVIDE OUR AREA WITH A DRY NORTHERLY FLOW TODAY. SOME RESIDUAL
STRATO-CUMULUS PERSIST OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND
VALLEY FACING SLOPES OF THE MOUNTAINS. THESE WILL DISSIPATE TONIGHT
AS THE ATMOSPHERE CONTINUES TO DRY OUT. MAINLY CLEAR SKIES PREVAIL
ELSEWHERE ACROSS OUR AREA. TEMPERATURES HAVE GENERALLY TRENDED
UPWARD BY 6-10 DEG F FROM YDAY OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND
KERN COUNTY DESERTS AND BY 8-13 DEG F OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA
NEVADA AND TEHACHAPI MOUNTAINS AND SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS.
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ARE MUCH LOWER THAN YDAY ACROSS OUR ENTIRE
AREA AS DRIER AIR CONTINUES TO PUSH IN.

12Z WRF INDICATING THE OFFSHORE RIDGE WILL BUILD INLAND OVER
NORCAL ON MONDAY RESULTING IN A NORTHEAST FLOW OVER CENTRAL CA
WHICH WILL CONTINUE THE DRYING TREND ACROSS OUR AREA. RISES IN
HEIGHTS AND DIURNAL THICKNESSES WILL BRING AN EVEN MORE NOTICABLE
WARMING TREND TO OUR AREA WITH MOST LOCATIONS EXPECTED TO BE 8-14
DEG F WARMER THAN TODAY. THE RIDGE IS PROGGED TO SHIFT INLAND ON
TUESDAY WITH TEMPERATURES CONTINUING TO TREND UPWARD AND REACH
THE 90S ACROSS MUCH OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AS WELL AS PORTIONS
OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND KERN COUNTY DESERTS.

THE RIDGE IS THEN PROGGED TO BREAK DOWN ON WEDNESDAY AS AN UPPER
LEVEL LOW PUSHES INTO THE PAC NW. WHILE THE MOISTURE WITH THIS
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN WELL TO THE NORTH OF OUR AREA AND
SKIES REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR ON WEDNESDAY...TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO COOL SOME FROM TUESDAY. SOME UNCERTAINTY EXISTS ON HOW
MUCH COOLING WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AS A RESULT
OF LOW LEVEL MARINE COOLED AIR SPILLING INLAND. AT THIS TIME WILL
FOLLOW A BLEND OF THE OPERATIONAL MODELS FOR DAYTIME HIGHS.
TEMPERATURES WILL STILL BE WELL ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS FOR LATE
APRIL.

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS AND THEIR ENSEMBLE MEMBERS HAVE COME INTO
BETTER AGREEMENT FOR THE WEEK AHEAD WITH THE OVERALL PATTERN AS
A COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE MID-WEEK LOW OVER THE PAC NW
WASHES OUT OVER NORCAL ON THURSDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN WELL
ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS ALTHOUGH THE IMPACT OF MARINE COOLED AIR
IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY IS DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT AT THIS TIME.
A PIECE OF ENERGY IS PROGGED TO BREAK OFF AND FOR A WEAK UPPER LOW
OFF THE NORCAL COAST ON THURSDAY AND DROP SOUTHWARD...FORMING A
WEAK TROUGH OVER CA FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. RH AND OMEGA PROGS
ARE INDICATING DEEP MOISTURE AND DYNAMICS WILL NOT BE SUFFICIENT
ENOUGH FOR A SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION EVENT...BUT THERE WILL BE
ENOUGH INSTABILITY FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON SHOWERS ALONG
THE SOUTHERN SIERRA CREST FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO COOL SLIGHTLY EACH DAY...BUT REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE
NORMAL BY THE END OF NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.AVIATION...MVFR CONDITIONS ALONG THE NORTH FACING SLOPES OF THE
TEHACHAPI MOUNTAINS UNTIL 21Z TODAY WITH IMPROVEMENT TO VFR BY THE
AFTERNOON. LOCAL MVFR CEILINGS CAN BE EXPECTED ALONG THE WEST
SLOPES OF THE SIERRA FROM FRESNO COUNTY SOUTHWARD UNTIL 21Z TODAY.
OTHERWISE...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

&&

.AIR QUALITY ISSUES...NONE.

&&

.CERTAINTY...

THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 1 AND 2 IS HIGH.
THE LEVEL OF CERTAINTY FOR DAYS 3 THROUGH 7 IS MEDIUM.

NORTHERLY FLOW OVER THE REGION. THIS FLOW HAS ALLOWED LOW CLOUDS
TO BANK UP MAINLY ALONG THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...WITH OVERCAST SKIES REPORTED AS FAR NORTH AS BAKERSFIELD.
THESE CLOUDS ARE FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO IMPACT THE SOUTHERN SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY INTO THE LATE MORNING HOURS.

OTHERWISE...UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY BUILD

LOCATIONS. THESE TEMPERATURES ARE BETWEEN 10 AND 15 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.

SUBTLE COOLING WILL OCCUR OVER THE SECOND HALF OF NEXT WEEK AS THE
ENSEMBLE MEANS INDICATE A BROAD UPPER TROUGH IMPACTING THE WEST
COAST. AS OF NOW...THE MAIN IMPACT FROM THIS TROUGH WILL BE A COOLING
TREND...WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF SIERRA NEVADA SHOWERS FRIDAY INTO
THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER...THERE IS STILL MUCH DISCREPANCY BETWEEN THE
