610 PM PDT THU AUG 28 2014

.UPDATE...
UPDATED AIR QUALITY SECTION.

&&

.SYNOPSIS... HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE REGION
RESULTING IN CLEAR SKIES AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES.
LITTLE CHANGE IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS EXCEPT FOR
SLIGHT COOLING OVER THE WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG (~594DM) HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE CENTERED OFF THE SOCAL COAST
PROVIDING SUNNY SKIES TODAY WITH TEMPERATURES RUNNING SLIGHTLY
WARMER THAN YESTERDAY. HIGH TEMPS ON TRACK TO TOP OUT A FEW
DEGREES ABOVE CLIMO WITH SOME TRIPLE DIGITS IN THE LOWER
ELEVATIONS. SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FORMER HURRICANE...NOW
TROPICAL STORM MARIE ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE RIDGE WITH SOME
MOISTURE SPREADING NORTHWARD ALONG 130W. THE RIDGE WILL REMAIN IN
CONTROL ON FRIDAY BUT WESTERLY FLOW ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE RIDGE
WILL WRAP SOME OF THIS MOISTURE ACROSS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. RH
PROGS ARE INDICATING MOISTURE WILL BE ABOVE 700 MB...SO JUST
EXPECT SOME MID/HIGH CLOUDS FRIDAY/FRIDAY NIGHT. AN UPPER TROUGH
WILL MOVE INTO THE PACNW FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY THEN OVER
THE NORTHERN ROCKIES BY SUNDAY. A DRY NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT
WILL PREVAIL WITH A COOLING TREND. FLAT RIDGING WILL REGAIN
CONTROL EARLY NEXT WEEK THEN ANOTHER TROUGH IS FORECAST TO MOVE
INTO THE PACNW AND NORCAL FOR THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK.
TEMPERATURES WILL CHANGE LITTLE ON FRIDAY THEN COOL OVER THE
WEEKEND WITH HIGHS ON SUNDAY EXPECTED TO BE SLIGHTLY BELOW CLIMO.
A MODEST WARMING TREND WILL OCCUR EARLY NEXT WEEK THEN LEVELING

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
307 AM PDT THU AUG 28 2014

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING CLEAR SKIES AND ABOVE
NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES TO THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR
THROUGH FRIDAY. SLIGHTLY COOLER WEATHER CAN BE EXPECTED THIS
WEEKEND AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE SETTLES INTO
THE GREAT BASIN. LABOR DAY AND TUESDAY WILL TREND WARMER AGAIN
AS HIGH PRESSURE REBUILDS OVER THE REGION.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE OVERALL PATTERN WILL BE RATHER QUIET DURING
THE NEXT 7 DAYS WITH A CONTINUATION OF DRY WEATHER ACROSS THE
CWA. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN PARKED
OVER CA DURING THE NEXT 36 HOURS AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CA INTERIOR. MAXIMUM
TEMPS WILL FLIRT WITH THE CENTURY MARK IN MANY SJ VLY AND
DESERT LOCATIONS TODAY AND FRIDAY.

THE LATEST MODEL RUNS NOW BREAK THE RIDGE DOWN A BIT FASTER AND
FORECAST AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO SETTLE INTO THE GREAT BASIN
DURING THE SATURDAY/SUNDAY PERIOD. A DRY COLD FRONT IS SLATED
TO MOVE SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE CWA EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. THIS
IS ABOUT 24 HOURS EARLIER THAN PREVIOUS MODEL RUNS. THE FRONT
ITSELF WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY LITTLE MORE THAN SOME ALTOCUMULUS
AND CIRRUS. OTHERWISE...AN ONSHORE FLOW WILL BECOME ESTABLISHED
IN THE WAKE OF THIS FRONT THIS WEEKEND WITH MINOR SYNOPTIC
COOLING. A SHALLOW INTRUSION OF MARINE AIR IS LIKELY IN THE SJ VLY
THIS WEEKEND BUT IT WILL NOT BE VERY NOTICEABLE UNTIL SUNDAY WHEN
AFTERNOON TEMPS VALLEYWIDE WILL BE NO HIGHER THAN THE LOWER 90S.
OCEAN COOLED AIR WILL BEGIN FLOWING THROUGH THE SAC DELTA SATURDAY
AND WILL PROBABLY BLEED INTO THE SJ VLY NORTH OF FRESNO COUNTY
DURING THE AFTERNOON WHILE THE REMAINDER OF THE SJ VLY STAYS
RELATIVELY HOT.

THE COOLDOWN WILL BE SHORT LIVED...HOWEVER...AND BY LABOR DAY
ANOTHER WARMING TREND WILL ALREADY BE UNDERWAY AS THE UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE BUILDS BACK OVER CA. THE MODELS FORECAST THIS RIDGE TO
REMAIN OVER CA THROUGH TUESDAY THEN BRING ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH INTO THE PAC NW DURING THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. SO THE
REESTABLISHMENT OF AN ONSHORE FLOW AND A MODEST COOLING TREND
SEEMS LIKELY AGAIN ACROSS THE CENTRAL CA INTERIOR ON DAYS 6 AND 7.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
955 PM PDT WED AUG 27 2014

.UPDATE...
UPDATED HIGH TEMPERATURES THURSDAY.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL RETURN TO THE AREA AND RESULT IN ABOVE-NORMAL
TEMPERATURES FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK WITH DRY CONDITIONS
EXPECTED. COOLER THIS WEEKEND AS A DRY LOW PRESSURE TROUGH MOVES
INTO CALIFORNIA.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
TODAY WERE WARMER THAN EXPECTED...WITH THE WARMEST SPOTS HITTING
TRIPLE DIGITS. ARVIN AND WASCO REACHED 102 DEGREES...AND COALINGA
HAD A HIGH OF 101. BAKERSFIELD REACHED 99 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON...
AND FRESNO HIT 98.

THE 00Z GFS AND NAM-12 ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH 850-MB
TEMPERATURES OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
WARMING 1.0-1.5 C BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON...AND 500-MB HEIGHTS
REMAINING ABOVE 5910 METERS. BASED ON THIS...IT LOOKS LIKE
THURSDAY WILL BE ABOUT 2 DEGREES WARMER THAN TODAY...WITH BOTH
BAKERSFIELD AND FRESNO HITTING TRIPLE DIGITS.

THE 00Z MODELS CONTINUE THE TREND OF DROPPING AN UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST FRIDAY...PUSHING THE RIDGE
OFFSHORE AND LOWERING 500-MB HEIGHTS OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA BELOW
5910 METERS. BASED ON THE LATEST MODELS...IT IS LIKELY THAT
THURSDAY WILL BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 415 PM PDT WED AUG 27 2014/

DISCUSSION...
WHILE A BUILDING RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATED THE REGION
TODAY...SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS HURRICANE MARIE APPROACHING
25N/125W OR ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTHWEST OF SAN DIEGO. THIS RIDGE OF
HIGHER PRESSURE...HELPING TO PUSH THE UPPER LOW OUT OF THE GREAT
BASIN AND MORE TOWARD THE MID-WEST...WILL HELP TO CLEAR OUT MUCH
OF THE REGION AND PLACE THE AREA UNDER DRY CONDITIONS. THE RIDGE
WILL ALSO STEER MARIE MORE NORTHWESTWARD AND REMAIN OVER AN AREA
BETWEEN CALIFORNIA AND HAWAII. THEREFORE...WHILE THE UPPER LOW
PUSHING INTO THE MID-WEST WILL DRAW IN SOME OF MARIE/S MOISTURE...

955 PM PDT WED AUG 27 2014

.UPDATE...
UPDATED HIGH TEMPERATURES THURSDAY.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL RETURN TO THE AREA AND RESULT IN ABOVE-NORMAL
TEMPERATURES FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK WITH DRY CONDITIONS
EXPECTED. COOLER THIS WEEKEND AS A DRY LOW PRESSURE TROUGH MOVES
INTO CALIFORNIA.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
TODAY WERE WARMER THAN EXPECTED...WITH THE WARMEST SPOTS HITTING
TRIPLE DIGITS. ARVIN AND WASCO REACHED 102 DEGREES...AND COALINGA
HAD A HIGH OF 101. BAKERSFIELD REACHED 99 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON...
AND FRESNO HIT 98.

THE 00Z GFS AND NAM-12 ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH 850-MB
TEMPERATURES OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
WARMING 1.0-1.5 C BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON...AND 500-MB HEIGHTS
REMAINING ABOVE 5910 METERS. BASED ON THIS...IT LOOKS LIKE
THURSDAY WILL BE ABOUT 2 DEGREES WARMER THAN TODAY...WITH BOTH
BAKERSFIELD AND FRESNO HITTING TRIPLE DIGITS.

THE 00Z MODELS CONTINUE THE TREND OF DROPPING AN UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST FRIDAY...PUSHING THE RIDGE
OFFSHORE AND LOWERING 500-MB HEIGHTS OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA BELOW
5910 METERS. BASED ON THE LATEST MODELS...IT IS LIKELY THAT
THURSDAY WILL BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
309 AM PDT WED AUG 27 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
DRY WEATHER AND WARMER TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE
CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY AS AN UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES THE PATTERN. THE SECOND
HALF OF THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND WILL TREND SLIGHTLY COOLER AS AN
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE SETTLES INTO THE GREAT BASIN.

&&

.DISCUSSION...TEMPERATURES ARE RUNNING SLIGHTLY HIGHER THIS
MORNING THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE CENTRAL CA INTERIOR COMPARED TO
24 HRS AGO. THIS IS A TREND THAT WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT RESIDES OVER
CA. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO SEASONABLE LEVELS THIS AFTERNOON
UNDER SUNNY SKIES. THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WILL BECOME EVEN WARMER
AS THE RIDGE REMAINS PARKED OFF THE SOUTHERN CA COAST. HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE HOTTEST LOCALES OF THE SJ VLY AND THE KERN
COUNTY DESERT WILL TOP THE CENTURY MARK THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL OVER THE CENTRAL CA
INTERIOR SATURDAY EVEN THOUGH THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WEAKENS
OFF THE SOUTHERN CA COAST. IN FACT...BEACHGOERS MIGHT NOTICE
A STRENGTHENING SEABREEZE ALONG THE CENTRAL CA COAST AS EARLY
AS SATURDAY AFTERNOON AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT TO
OUR NORTH. THE COLD FRONT WILL SLIP RATHER QUIETLY SOUTHWARD
THROUGH OUR CWA SATURDAY NIGHT ACCOMPANIED BY HIGH CLOUDS.
THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FRONT WILL SETTLE
INTO THE GREAT BASIN THIS WEEKEND AND PUT CA BACK UNDER A DRY
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT SIMILAR TO WHAT WE STARTED WITH THIS
WEEK. TEMPERATURES SUNDAY AND LABOR DAY WILL RETURN TO SEASONABLE
LEVELS AND PERHAPS SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN NORMAL NORTH OF FRESNO
COUNTY IF A MODEST ONSHORE FLOW BRINGS A DEEP ENOUGH MARINE LAYER
INTO THE SJ VLY LATER THIS WEEKEND.

THE OPERATIONAL GFS AND ECM ARE POLARIZED IN THEIR SOLUTIONS ON
DAYS 6 AND 7. WHILE BOTH AGREE THERE WILL BE A HIGH AMPLITUDE
RIDGE OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK...
THERE IS LARGE DISPARITY OF THE STRENGTH OF THE DOWNSTREAM TROUGH
OVER THE WESTERN CONUS. THE GFS BRINGS MORE ENERGY SOUTHWARD INTO
THE PAC NW AND CARVES A TROUGH OUT OVER THE GREAT BASIN BY NEXT
WEDNESDAY WHILE THE ECM FORECASTS THE EPAC RIDGE TO DOMINATE
ALONG THE WEST COAST. IF THE ECM IS RIGHT...CENTRAL CALIFORNIA IS
IN FOR A BIG WARMUP BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WHILE THE GFS
FORECASTS A CONTINUATION OF AN ONSHORE FLOW WITH NEUTRAL TEMP
TRENDS DURING THE SAME PERIOD. THE ENSEMBLES SEEM TO BE LEANING

.SYNOPSIS...
NEAR AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH MID WEEK WHILE A

TEMPERATURES WILL WARM...PUSHING HIGHS A FEW TO SEVERAL DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL BY FRIDAY...NEAR THE CENTURY MARK AT MANY VALLEY
LOCATIONS. A DEVELOPING TROUGH MOVING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

TROPICAL SYSTEM MARIE WELL OUT OF OUR AREA...AND THAT TREND
CONTINUES THROUGH THE CURRENT RUNS. IT APPEARS THAT THE ONLY
