NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
945 PM PST THU MAR 5 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE
WEEKEND RESULTING IN A WARMING TREND AND DRY WEATHER INTO AT LEAST
THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE CORE OVER THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST
BROUGHT CLEAR SKIES TO INTERIOR CENTRAL CALIFORNIA TODAY. AS A
RESULT HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY WERE IN THE LOWER TO MID 70S.

THE COMBINATION OF THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA RIDGE CORE AND AN
UPPER-LEVEL LOW WEST OF NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA WILL KEEP A REX
BLOCK PATTERN THROUGH AT LEAST FRIDAY. FOR SATURDAY...THE 00Z
MODELS FORECAST THE BLOCK TO BECOME TILTED NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST
AND ULTIMATELY OPEN. BEFORE THAT HAPPENS...HOWEVER...THE MODELS
FORECAST THE RIDGE CORE TO EXPAND SOUTHWARD INTO CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA. THIS WILL WARM TEMPERATURES OVER TODAY...AND HAVE
THEREFORE RAISED FRIDAY/S VALLEY HIGHS BY A COUPLE OF DEGREES. THE
MOUNTAIN AND DESERT TEMPERATURES LOOK GOOD...SO DID NOT CHANGE.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 108 PM PST THU MAR 5 2015/

DISCUSSION...SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A "REX BLOCK" PATTERN OVER
THE WEST WITH HIGH PRESSURE WEST OF THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST
AND LOW PRESSURE CENTERED WELL SOUTHWEST OF SAN DIEGO. THIS VERY
STABLE PATTERN WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WITH
RESULTING TEMPERATURES RISING TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL. FORECAST
MODELS KEEP A RIDGE OVER THE REGION INTO TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK THEN
A CHANGE IN THE OVERALL UPPER AIR PATTERN OVER NORTH AMERICA IS
PROJECTED BY DETERMINISTIC MODELS (LATEST MODEL RUN) AND THE
ENSEMBLES WHICH INCORPORATE MANY MODELS AND MODELS RUNS.

GIVEN THIS SCENARIO, THERE IS AN INCREASING CHANCE OF A PACIFIC
SYSTEM MOVING INTO AT LEAST NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ON WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY OF NEXT WEEK. AT THIS TIME, IT APPEARS THAT CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA WILL NOT GET TOO MUCH PRECIPITATION EVEN IF THE SYSTEM
PENETRATES SOUTH INTO THE FORECAST AREA. ALL IN ALL CONTINUED DRY
AND ABOVE NORMAL WARMTH FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
227 AM PST THU MAR 5 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE
WEEKEND RESULTING IN A WARMING TREND AND DRY WEATHER INTO AT LEAST
THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE WARMING TREND CONTINUES TODAY AS THE UPPER RIDGE
SHIFTS EAST OVER THE WEST COAST. TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON ARE
FORECAST TO WARM INTO THE 70S THROUGH THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY...THE
MID 60S TO LOW 70S IN THE FOOTHILLS...AND THE MID TO UPPER 60S IN
THE DESERT. THESE TEMPERATURES ARE AROUND 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
FOR THE BEGINNING OF MARCH.

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE THE REGION THROUGH THE
WEEKEND INTO THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. THE WARMEST DAY OF THE
FORECAST LOOKS TO BE SUNDAY...WHERE VALLEY...FOOTHILL...AND DESERT
LOCATIONS WILL CLIMB INTO THE MID TO UPPER 70S. IN FACT...A FEW
PLACES IN THE SOUTH VALLEY AND DESERT MAY EVEN HIT THE 80 DEGREE
MARK.

OTHERWISE...THE ENSEMBLE MEANS AS WELL AS OPERATIONAL MODELS
CONTINUE TO INDICATE A CHANGE IN THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN BY THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK AS AN UPPER LOW SLOWLY MOVES EAST TOWARD THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST COASTLINE. NCEPS GLOBAL ENSEMBLE IS INDICATING
VERY LOW PROBABILITY OF THE PATTERN SHIFT...GIVING THE FORECAST
LOW CONFIDENCE. ADDITIONALLY...NAEFS PROBABILITY OF MEASUREABLE
PRECIPITATION HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE FROM MODEL RUN TO MODEL
RUN. IF THE REGION DOES GET PRECIPITATION...IT WILL LIKELY BE OVER
THE SIERRA CREST FROM FRESNO COUNTY NORTHWARD BEGINNING WEDNESDAY
AND CONTINUING INTO THE END OF THE WORK WEEK. A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
PRECIPITATION WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST...GIVEN THE UNCERTAINTY.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THE FORECAST AND HOPEFULLY GET A BETTER
HANDLE ON THE PATTERN BY THE WEEKEND. PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR
FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION.

&&

.AVIATION...IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY...LOCAL MVFR VISIBILITY IN
MIST BETWEEN 12Z AND 17Z THU. OTHERWISE...VFR CONDITIONS WILL
PREVAIL ACROSS THE CENTRAL CA INTERIOR FOR THE NEXT 24 HRS.

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

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE
WEEKEND RESULTING IN A WARMING TREND AND DRY WEATHER INTO AT LEAST
THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE WARMING TREND CONTINUES TODAY AS THE UPPER RIDGE
SHIFTS EAST OVER THE WEST COAST. TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON ARE
FORECAST TO WARM INTO THE 70S THROUGH THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY...THE
MID 60S TO LOW 70S IN THE FOOTHILLS...AND THE MID TO UPPER 60S IN
THE DESERT. THESE TEMPERATURES ARE AROUND 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
FOR THE BEGINNING OF MARCH.

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE THE REGION THROUGH THE
WEEKEND INTO THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. THE WARMEST DAY OF THE
FORECAST LOOKS TO BE SUNDAY...WHERE VALLEY...FOOTHILL...AND DESERT
LOCATIONS WILL CLIMB INTO THE MID TO UPPER 70S. IN FACT...A FEW
PLACES IN THE SOUTH VALLEY AND DESERT MAY EVEN HIT THE 80 DEGREE
MARK.

OTHERWISE...THE ENSEMBLE MEANS AS WELL AS OPERATIONAL MODELS
CONTINUE TO INDICATE A CHANGE IN THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN BY THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK AS AN UPPER LOW SLOWLY MOVES EAST TOWARD THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST COASTLINE. NCEPS GLOBAL ENSEMBLE IS INDICATING
VERY LOW PROBABILITY OF THE PATTERN SHIFT...GIVING THE FORECAST
LOW CONFIDENCE. ADDITIONALLY...NAEFS PROBABILITY OF MEASUREABLE
PRECIPITATION HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE FROM MODEL RUN TO MODEL
RUN. IF THE REGION DOES GET PRECIPITATION...IT WILL LIKELY BE OVER
THE SIERRA CREST FROM FRESNO COUNTY NORTHWARD BEGINNING WEDNESDAY
AND CONTINUING INTO THE END OF THE WORK WEEK. A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
PRECIPITATION WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST...GIVEN THE UNCERTAINTY.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THE FORECAST AND HOPEFULLY GET A BETTER
HANDLE ON THE PATTERN BY THE WEEKEND. PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR
FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION.

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA TODAY AND
THURSDAY AND REMAIN OVER THE STATE THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
THIS WILL RESULT IN A WARMING TREND THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND DRY
WEATHER FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.

&&

.DISCUSSION...AMPLIFIED UPPER RIDGE OFF THE CA COAST IS NOW
BUILDING INLAND. THIS WILL PROVIDE OUR AREA WITH A WARMING TREND
AND DRY WEATHER FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. FOG IMAGERY INDICATING
SOME PATCHY STRATO-CUMULUS OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY...BUT THE
LOW CLOUDS WILL MIX OUT LATER THIS MORNING. SOME SHALLOW PATCHY
FOG IS ALSO POSSIBLE OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY THIS
MORNING...BUT ANY FOG WHICH DOES FORM WILL RAPIDLY BURN OFF JUST
AFTER SUNRISE THIS MORNING...GIVING WAY TO A MOSTLY SUNNY DAY
ACROSS OUR AREA. RISES IN HEIGHTS AND THICKNESSES WILL RESULT IN
A NOTICABLE WARMING TREND WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS AT MOST LOCATIONS
EXPECTED TO BE 4 TO 8 DEG F ABOVE YDAY.

06Z WRF IS INDICATING THE RIDGE AXIS WILL PUSH INLAND INTO THE
PAC NW BY THURSDAY RESULTING IN A DRY EASTERLY FLOW OVER CENTRAL
CA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. OFFSHORE FLOW AND DOWNSLOPE CONDITIONS
OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA AND TEHACHAPI MOUNTAINS WILL
RESULT IN LOWERING DAYTIME HUMIDITIES AND RISES IN HEIGHTS AND
THICKNESSES IN A DRY ATMOSPHERE WILL RESULT IN A CONTINUED
WARMING TREND EACH DAY FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS WEEK WITH MAINLY
CLEAR SKIES.

LOW CLOUDS WILL MIX OUT LATER THIS MORNING. SOME SHALLOW PATCHY
FOG IS ALSO POSSIBLE OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY THIS
MORNING...BUT ANY FOG WHICH DOES FORM WILL RAPIDLY BURN OFF JUST
AFTER SUNRISE THIS MORNING...GIVING WAY TO A MOSTLY SUNNY DAY
ACROSS OUR AREA. RISES IN HEIGHTS AND THICKNESSES WILL RESULT IN
A NOTICABLE WARMING TREND WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS AT MOST LOCATIONS
EXPECTED TO BE 4 TO 8 DEG F ABOVE YDAY.

AFTER A RELATIVELY CLEAR MORNING...CLOUDS ARE NOW POPPING UP OVER
THE MOUNTAINS WITH THE USUAL CLOUDS BANKED-UP AT THE GRAPEVINE.
WHILE DOPPLER RADAR IS NOT SHOWING PRECIP OVER THE GRAPEVINE...
SURFACE OBSERVATIONS HAVE BEEN REPORTING LIGHT RAIN AND HIGHER
ELEVATION SNOW. WILL EXPECT THE PRECIP COVERAGE AREA TO GROW AND
INCLUDE TULARE COUNTY AND POSSIBLY THE FRESNO COUNTY MOUNTAINS.
THE UPPER LOW THAT BROUGHT MONDAY/S STORMS IS MOVING SOUTH AND IS
CURRENTLY SOUTHWEST OF SAN DIEGO. WHILE A FEW MOUNTAIN SHOWERS
COULD DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON...ORGANIZED CONVECTION WILL REMAIN
WELL SOUTH OF THE DISTRICT. IN ADDITION...THE LACK OF DIURNAL
HEATING AFTER SUNSET WILL ALLOW FOR AN END TO TODAY/S SHOWERS.

A RIDGE PATTERN OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC WILL SHIFT EASTWARD AS
THE WEST COAST STORM MOVES INTO THE MID-WEST. THIS SHIFT WILL
ALLOW THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR TO DRY OUT AND ALLOW FOR A
WARMING TREND THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK. ENSEMBLES...ALONG WITH
GFS MOD-TREND...SHOW THE RIDGE PATTERN HOLDING STEADY OVER THE
WEST COAST THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK AS YET ANOTHER
BLOCKING PATTERN MOVES OVER THE REGION. WHILE MODELS DO PROG WEAK
SHORT-WAVE TROF/S MOVING OVER THE RIDGE...EACH STORM TRACK WILL
MOVE THROUGH THE REGION WELL TO THE NORTH OR EAST OF THE CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA INTERIOR. FURTHERMORE...THE BLOCKING PATTERN AXIS
REMAINS OFFSHORE DURING MOST OF THE PERIOD...KEEPING THE WARMING
TREND AT A MINIMUM AND ALLOWING FOR ONLY SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES. GFS MOD-TREND ANALYSIS DOES SHOW A LOW OFF THE
PACIFIC COAST TRYING TO DEEPEN AND GAIN ENOUGH STRENGTH TO SHIFT
THE RIDGE EASTWARD AND INTRODUCE ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM OVER THE
WEST. WHILE UNCERTAINTY IS STILL HIGH...BASED ON THE LOW PROB OF
MEASURABLE PRECIP AND LOW MEASURE OF PREDICTABILITY...WILL
INCREASE CLOUD COVER IN ANTICIPATION OF POSSIBLE WEATHER.

238 AM PST TUE MAR 3 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
SCATTERED RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE SIERRA
NEVADA AND KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING
HOURS. OTHERWISE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA
RESULTING IN A WARMING TREND WEDNESDAY INTO THE WEEKEND WITH DRY
WEATHER.

&&

.DISCUSSION...AN UPPER LOW...CURRENTLY OFF THE SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA COASTLINE...WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE SLOWLY SOUTHEAST INTO
BAJA CALIFORNIA LATER THIS MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS. A FEW
LINGERING RAIN/SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE LATER THIS MORNING
INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA AND THE KERN
COUNTY MOUNTAINS. SNOW LEVELS WILL START AROUND 5,500 FEET LATE
THIS MORNING AND LIFT TO AROUND 6,000 FEET LATER THIS EVENING.
LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW ACCUMULATION WILL BE POSSIBLE.

OTHERWISE...DRY WEATHER WILL PREVAIL FOR THE REST OF THE REGION AS
UPPER LEVEL NORTHERLY FLOW IMPACTS THE REGION. TEMPERATURES THIS
AFTERNOON WILL WARM INTO THE LOW TO MID 60S...SIMILAR TO THOSE
OBSERVED YESTERDAY AND A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL FOR THE FIRST
WEEK OF MARCH.

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO BUILD OVER CALIFORNIA
WEDNESDAY INTO THE WEEKEND...RESULTING IN CONTINUED DRY WEATHER
AND A WARMING TREND. SUNDAY LOOKS TO BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE
WEEK...WITH VALLEY...FOOTHILL...AND DESERT LOCATIONS IN THE MID
70S...A LITTLE OVER 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE MIDDLE OF
MARCH.

PATCHY EARLY MORNING FOG WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE...MAINLY ALONG THE
WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY EACH MORNING FROM WEDNESDAY
INTO THE WEEKEND...GIVEN THAT THE REGION RECEIVED RAIN THE PAST
FEW DAYS...WITH HIGH PRESSURE FIRMLY IN PLACE. CONFIDENCE IS LOW
WITH THE FORMATION OF FOG EACH MORNING GIVEN THE TIME OF YEAR
(HIGHER SUN ANGLE...LONGER DAYS...AND WARM AFTERNOONS.)

BY THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK...THE UPPER RIDGE BEGINS TO FLATTEN
AS AN UPPER TROUGH MOVES EAST TOWARD CALIFORNIA FROM THE EASTERN
PACIFIC. LOW CONFIDENCE ON THIS FEATURE AS NCEPS GLOBAL ENSEMBLE
IS INDICATING VERY LOW PROBABILITY ON THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN
BEGINNING EARLY NEXT WEEK. REGARDLESS...THE REGION LOOKS TO STAY
DRY FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 7 DAYS...HIGH CONFIDENCE.
