AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
155 PM PDT SUN MAR 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
SEVERAL WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES WILL BRUSH THROUGH THE
REGION OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...KEEPING TEMPERATURES AWAY
FROM EXTREME HIGHS BUT MOST OF THE AREA WILL STILL BE SEVERAL
DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
SATELLITE LOOPS SHOW A WEAK UPPER-LEVEL LOW MOVING ACROSS CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA THIS AFTERNOON. THE WATER-VAPOR LOOP SHOWS THE LOW TO BE
DRY...AND WEBCAMS AROUND THE AREA CONFIRM THIS AS ONLY A FEW CLOUDS
ARE VISIBLE. HOWEVER...A CUMULUS CLOUD NEAR BUCK ROCK WAS BEGINNING
TO SHOW SOME VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT...SUGGESTING THAT DYNAMICS
ASSOCIATED WITH THE LOW MAY STILL BRING AN ISOLATED SHOWER OR TWO TO
THE HIGH COUNTRY OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA.

OTHERWISE...THE MAINLY CLEAR SKIES HAVE ALLOWED SOME WARMING TODAY.
THIS WAS AFTER ANOTHER UNSEASONABLY WARM NIGHT WHICH SAW BAKERSFIELD
LIKELY TIE ITS RECORD HIGH MINIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR TODAY OF 58
DEGREES...SET IN 1978. FRESNO/S LOW SO FAR HAS BEEN 53 DEGREES...
WELL BELOW ITS RECORD HIGH MINIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR TODAY OF 59
DEGREES...SET IN 1986.

AT 20Z /1300 PDT/...TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY WERE IN THE MID 70S TO LOWER 80S...AND WERE RUNNING
UP TO 3 DEGREES OVER 20Z SATURDAY. VALLEY TEMPERATURES REMAIN ON
TRACK TO TOP OUT IN THE MID 80S...AND FRESNO LIKELY WILL COME WITHIN
A FEW DEGREES OF ITS RECORD HIGH FOR TODAY OF 87 /SET IN 1969/.
BAKERSFIELD/S RECORD HIGH FOR TODAY IS 94 /SET IN 2004/ AND THE
TEMPERATURE AT MEADOWS FIELD IS EXPECTED TO STAY WELL BELOW THAT.

AN UPPER-LEVEL SHORT-WAVE RIDGE IS FORECAST TO MOVE OVER CALIFORNIA
MONDAY...BRINGING ADDITIONAL WARMING. BOTH AND BAKERSFIELD AND
FRESNO COULD REACH THE UPPER 80S AND BREAK THEIR RECORD HIGHS FOR
MARCH 30TH.

THE PATTERN WILL BEGIN TO CHANGE TUESDAY AS AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH
MOVES INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST/NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. THE 500-MB 5700-
METER LINE IS FORECAST TO DROP SOUTH OF FRESNO BY 12Z WEDNESDAY...
AND TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY ARE EXPECTED TO DROP TO NEAR NORMAL FOR
THE START OF APRIL.

THE GFS AND ECMWF BEGIN TO DIVERGE WEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH THE ECMWF
BEING THE MORE PROGRESSIVE MODEL. THIS IMPACTS THE TIMING OF THE
NEXT SHORT-WAVE TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK...AS WELL AS THE ARRIVAL
OF A DEEPER TROUGH NEXT SUNDAY. AT THIS TIME...HAVE KEPT CONTINUITY
WITH THE EXISTING FORECAST WHICH FAVORS THE ECMWF TIMING AND KEPT
TEMPERATURES NEAR SEASONAL THURSDAY WITH THE NEXT SHORT-WAVE
FOLLOWED BY WARMING FRIDAY.

ONE CHANGE WAS TO ADD SLIGHT CHANCE POPS NEAR YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK
SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY TO MATCH WFO SACRAMENTO. OTHERWISE...HAVE
KEPT THE FORECAST DRY AFTER THIS EVENING.

&&

.AVIATION...
ISOLD TSTMS OVER THE SIERRA CREST POSSIBLE THROUGH 06Z MONDAY.
OTHERWISE VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED 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.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
212 AM PDT SUN MAR 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A WEAK PACIFIC DISTURBANCE WILL BRING A SMALL
THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE SIERRA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL INTO NEXT
WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A WEAK, BUT DISTINCT
CIRCULATION MOVING INTO THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR AND THIS
FEATURE WILL ALLOW FOR SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM OVER
THE SIERRA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. MODEL INSTABILITY INDICIES
INDICATE AS MUCH AS 1000 J/KG OF CAPE (CONVECTIVE AVAILABLE
POTENTIAL ENERGY) OVER THE SIERRA SHORTLY AFTER NOON AND
PERSISTINGTHROUGH SUNSET. CURRENT FORECAST HAS THIS COVERED
WELL. FORECAST MODELS SLOWLY MOVE THE WEAK UPPER LOW TO THE EAST
ON MONDAY AND ALTHOUGH NOT TOTALLY OUT OF THE QUESTION, THE THREAT
OF THUNDERSTORMS APPEARS TO BE RATHER MINIMAL ON MONDAY AFTERNOON.

FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK, MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT IN BRINGING A
SERIES OF SHORT WAVE TROUGHS ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST HOWEVER
THE FORECAST PRECIPITATION REMAINS TO THE NORTH OF CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA. IN RESPONSE, TEMPERATURES WILL FLUCTUATE A LITTLE
WITH THE PASSAGE OF IMPULSES HOWEVER VALUES WILL REMAIN ABOVE
NORMAL FOR LATE MARCH AND EARLY APRIL.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
130 PM PDT SAT MAR 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A WEAK PACIFIC DISTURBANCE CONTINUES TO MOVE THROUGH THE AREA
PRODUCING SLIGHT COOLING. HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT
WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
SATELLITE LOOPS SHOW MAINLY CLEAR SKIES OVER THE WFO HANFORD
WARNING/FORECAST AREA TODAY AS AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH BRINGS A
COOLING TREND TO THE REGION. AT 20Z /1300 PDT/ TODAY...TEMPERATURES
ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY WERE IN THE MID
TO UPPER 70S...DOWN 6-9 DEGREES FROM 20Z FRIDAY.

DESPITE THE RECORD WARMTH FRIDAY...NEITHER BAKERSFIELD NOR FRESNO
SET RECORD HIGH MINIMUM TEMPERATURES THIS MORNING ALTHOUGH BOTH
CITIES CAME CLOSE. FRESNO MISSED ITS RECORD BY ONE DEGREE AND
BAKERSFIELD MISSED ITS RECORD BY TWO DEGREES.

ONE WEATHER CONCERN FOR TODAY WAS THE POSSIBILITY OF CONVECTION OVER
THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA HIGH COUNTRY THIS AFTERNOON AS WELL AS
SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE LATEST HRRR ONLY HAS SURFACE-COMPUTED CAPES OF
240+ JOULES/KG OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA...ALTHOUGH SURFACE-
COMPUTED LIFTED INDICES ARE AROUND -3 /OVER EASTERN FRESNO AND
MADERA COUNTIES/ AND 850-MB THETA-E PEAKS AT 332 K /OVER
NORTHEASTERN TULARE COUNTY/. DESPITE SOMEWHAT FAVORABLE CONVECTIVE
PARAMETERS...THE TROUGH DOES APPEAR TO BE MOISTURE STARVED GIVEN THE
MINIMAL CLOUD DEVELOPMENT SO FAR...AND EXPECT THAT ANY CONVECTION
WILL BE CONFINED TO THE TIME OF PEAK HEATING AROUND 00Z SUNDAY /1700
PDT THIS AFTERNOON/.

ANOTHER UPPER-LEVEL SHORT-WAVE IS FORECAST TO MOVE THROUGH CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. 500-MB HEIGHTS OVER THE
REGION ARE FORECAST TO FALL BELOW 5790 METERS. THE NAM-12 IS
UNSTABLE FOR SUNDAY AFTERNOON WITH SURFACE-COMPUTED CAPES OF 1300
JOULES/KG...SURFACE-COMPUTED CAPES AS LOW AS -5 AND 850-MB THETA-E
PEAKING AROUND 333 K. THE WATER-VAPOR LOOP SHOWS MORE MID- AND HIGH-
LEVEL MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SECOND SHORT-WAVE...SO THERE WILL
BE A BETTER...ALBEIT STILL LOW...CHANCE FOR MOUNTAIN CONVECTION
SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. IN FACT...THE LATEST /20Z/ RFC QPF
GUIDANCE DOES HAVE UP TO 0.02 INCH OF RAIN FROM YOSEMITE NATIONAL
PARK TO HUNTINGTON LAKE.

WEAK UPPER-LEVEL RIDGING WILL RETURN MONDAY...BUT WILL GIVE WAY TO
AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH MOVING THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND THE
NORTHERN HALF OF CALIFORNIA THE NEXT DAY. THIS WILL SET THE STAGE
FOR A STRONGER TROUGH TO REACH CALIFORNIA THURSDAY...AND IF THE GFS
IS CORRECT...YET ANOTHER TROUGH OVER THE STATE NEXT SATURDAY INTO
SUNDAY.

THE RESULT OF THESE SYSTEMS IS THAT THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY WILL SEE WARMING BACK TO AROUND 90 MONDAY...THEN COOL
DOWN TO THE MID 70S BY WEDNESDAY. DO NOT EXPECT MOUNTAIN CONVECTION
FROM THIS TROUGH AT THIS TIME...BUT WILL LIKELY SEE AN INCREASE IN
MOUNTAIN CUMULUS SO HAVE BOOSTED SKY COVER OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA
NEVADA TUESDAY.

HAVE GONE WITH TOKEN POPS FOR THE THURSDAY AND SATURDAY SYSTEMS AT
THIS TIME PENDING SUBSEQUENT MODEL RUNS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR
NEXT WEEKEND/S TROUGH WHERE THE GFS IS CONSIDERABLY MORE PROGRESSIVE
THAN THE ECMWF.

&&

.AVIATION...
WIND GUSTS UP TO 22KT WILL BE LIKELY AT TERMINALS KMCE/KMER UNTIL
06Z. OTHERWISE VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED 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.

.SYNOPSIS...A WEAK PACIFIC DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION
TODAY AND SUNDAY...BRINGING SLIGHT COOLING AND BREEZY CONDITIONS
ALONG WITH A THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA
CREST. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA THAT HELPED BRING RECORD
TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 90S TO THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY ON FRIDAY
IS SHIFTING EAST AND ALLOWING A WEAK TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD
FRONT TO MOVE INTO CALIFORNIA. ALTHOUGH THE MARINE LAYER WAS ONLY
ABOUT 1500 FEET...THE APPROACHING TROUGH WAS ENOUGH TO HELP THE
MARINE AIR SPILL INTO THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY OVERNIGHT. THIS WILL
HELP COOL TEMPERATURES 5-10 DEGREES TODAY IN THE LOWER ELEVATIONS
WHILE THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRA SEE ONLY VERY SLIGHT
COOLING.

THE COLD FRONT DOES NOT HAVE MUCH MOISTURE WITH IT...BUT IT MAY
PROVIDE ENOUGH INSTABILITY OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA TO PRODUCE
A FEW SHOWERS OR EVEN A THUNDERSTORM. HAVE KEPT ONLY SLIGHT CHANCE
POPS FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS.

THE UPPER RIDGE WILL REBOUND ON MONDAY WITH TEMPERATURES WARMING
A FEW DEGREES. HOWEVER THE RIDGE WEAKENS AGAIN ON TUESDAY AS A
TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND
BRINGS A MORE ZONAL FLOW ACROSS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA FOR TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY WITH ANOTHER WEAK SHORTWAVE MOVING ACROSS CALIFORNIA
THURSDAY. DO NOT EXPECT ANY PRECIPITATION WITH THESE WEAK SYSTEMS.
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE UPPER 70S TO NEAR 80 DEGREES IN
THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY FOR TUESDAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
243 AM PDT SAT MAR 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A WEAK PACIFIC DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION
TODAY AND SUNDAY...BRINGING SLIGHT COOLING AND BREEZY CONDITIONS
ALONG WITH A THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA
CREST. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA THAT HELPED BRING RECORD
TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 90S TO THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY ON FRIDAY
IS SHIFTING EAST AND ALLOWING A WEAK TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD
FRONT TO MOVE INTO CALIFORNIA. ALTHOUGH THE MARINE LAYER WAS ONLY
ABOUT 1500 FEET...THE APPROACHING TROUGH WAS ENOUGH TO HELP THE
MARINE AIR SPILL INTO THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY OVERNIGHT. THIS WILL
HELP COOL TEMPERATURES 5-10 DEGREES TODAY IN THE LOWER ELEVATIONS
WHILE THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRA SEE ONLY VERY SLIGHT
COOLING.

THE COLD FRONT DOES NOT HAVE MUCH MOISTURE WITH IT...BUT IT MAY
PROVIDE ENOUGH INSTABILITY OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA TO PRODUCE
A FEW SHOWERS OR EVEN A THUNDERSTORM. HAVE KEPT ONLY SLIGHT CHANCE
POPS FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS.

THE UPPER RIDGE WILL REBOUND ON MONDAY WITH TEMPERATURES WARMING
A FEW DEGREES. HOWEVER THE RIDGE WEAKENS AGAIN ON TUESDAY AS A
TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND
BRINGS A MORE ZONAL FLOW ACROSS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA FOR TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY WITH ANOTHER WEAK SHORTWAVE MOVING ACROSS CALIFORNIA
THURSDAY. DO NOT EXPECT ANY PRECIPITATION WITH THESE WEAK SYSTEMS.
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE UPPER 70S TO NEAR 80 DEGREES IN
THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY FOR TUESDAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...
WHICH IS STILL SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL.


&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED 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.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
255 PM PDT FRI MAR 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL PERSIST OVER THE REGION PROVIDING DRY WEATHER
AND KEEPING TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL. A WEAK PACIFIC
DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE IN OVER THE WEEKEND AND BRING SLIGHT
COOLING AND BREEZY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH A THREAT OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA CREST. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT
WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
LITTLE CHANGE IN THE FORECAST IS EXPECTED OVER THE CENTRAL CAL
INTERIOR AS THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER
THE WEST COAST. WHILE THE AXIS OF THE RIDGE IS CURRENTLY OVER THE
GREAT BASIN/INTER-MTN WEST...SHORT RANGE PROGS DO HAVE IT SLOWLY
SHIFTING EAST AS A TROF PUSHES ONSHORE LATER TONIGHT. CURRENTLY...
FORT ORD PROFILER IS SHOWING A SHALLOW MARINE LAYER...BUT IT IS
TRENDING TOWARD BECOMING DEEPER. ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT PROGGED TO
PUSH INTO THE BAY AREA TONIGHT AND ADVANCE TOWARD THE CENTRAL CAL
INTERIOR BY SATURDAY MORNING. THEREFORE...WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN
WIND SPEED OVERNIGHT...MAINLY ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...AHEAD OF THE COOLER MARINE AIR.

TEMPERATURES...WHICH HAVE BEEN REACHING THE UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S
...WILL SEE A DROP BEHIND THE COLD FRONT AS MARINE AIR FILTERS
INTO THE VALLEY. WILL EXPECT AS MUCH AS A TEN DEGREE-F DROP IN
VALLEY TEMP/S BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON AS THE COLD FRONT MOVES TO
THE EAST. DURING THE PUSH OF MARINE AIR INTO THE VALLEY OVERNIGHT
...WILL SEE SURFACE WINDS BLOW IN THE RANGE OF 10 TO 20 MPH...
WITH GUSTS REACHING 30 MPH...AND MAINLY ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE
SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY ALONG THE INTERSTATE-5 CORRIDOR. THE COLD FRONT
WILL REMAIN DRY DURING MOST OF ITS PASSAGE...BUT MAY PRODUCE
SHOWERS AS THE FRONT INTERACTS WITH THE MOUNTAINS. THEREFORE...
DUE TO SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY AND LIMITED MOISTURE...WILL KEEP
CONVECTION TO MINIMAL CHANCES ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. MAY EVEN SEE
A VERY LIGHT SHOWER NEAR THE GRAPEVINE FROM CLOUDS THAT BANK UP
AROUND THE SOUTH END OF THE VALLEY IN A POST-FRONTAL ENVIRONMENT.

WHILE THE RIDGE WILL REBOUND ON MONDAY...THE RIDGE PATTERN WILL BE
HAVE WEAKEN. THEREFORE...WARMING TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY REACH INTO
THE 80S BEFORE ATTEMPTS TO PUSH ACROSS THE WEST BEFORE THE MIDDLE
OF THE WEEK. A SERIES OF TROFS ARE PROGGED TO THROUGH THE AREA
DURING THE LATTER PARK OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. CONFIDENCE IN THE
SERIES OF TROF IS GROWING AS MAX TEMPERATURES ARE NOW EXPECTED TO
REACH THE UPPER 70S TOWARD NEXT THURSDAY/FRIDAY...STILL ABOVE
NORMAL. AT THIS POINT...WILL KEEP THE DISTRICT DRY AFTER THIS
WEEKENDS CONVECTION OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

&&

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

&&

.DISCUSSION...ANOTHER RECORD SETTING HOT DAY IS ON TAP FOR PARTS
OF THE FORECAST AREA AS A STRONG ANTICYCLONE (HIGH PRESSURE AREA)
IS PARKED OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. EXPECT MANY 90+ READINGS OVER
THE LOWER ELEVATIONS WITH RECORDS FALLING. THE HIGH IS PROJECTED
TO WEAKEN AND MOVE EAST TONIGHT AND SATURDAY AS FORECAST MODELS
BRING A SHORT WAVE TROUGH INTO THE COAST TONIGHT AND SATURDAY.
THIS WILL ALLOW A ROBUST MARINE INTRUSION AS GRADIENTS BECOME
STRONGLY ONSHORE IN BOTH THE CENTRAL COAST AND KERN COUNTY DESERT
AREAS. WINDS WILL PICK UP THIS EVENING THROUGH THE USUAL PASSES
AND ABOUT 8-10 DEGREES OF COOLING WILL OCCUR ON SATURDAY.

IN THE SIERRA, COOLER AIR ALOFT WILL ARRIVE WITH THE TROUGH AND INCREASE
INSTABLILTY. ON BOTH SATURDAY AND ESPECIALLY SUNDAY AFTERNOONS,
THERE SHOULD BE ENOUGH LIFT AND INSTABILILITY TO PRODUCE SOME
THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AS WELL AS SOME VERY HIGH
ELEVATION SNOW SHOWERS. NOT EXPECTING A WIDESPREAD EVENT HOWEVER
GIVEN THE THE VERY WARM PATTERN AND LACK OF SNOW, THE HIGH COUNTRY
WILL LIKELY HAVE MORE USE THAN NORMAL FOR LATE MARCH.

FOR NEXT WEEK, A ZONAL FLOW PATTERN IS PROJECTED, HOWEVER AT THIS
TIME MODELS KEEP PRECIPITATION PRODUCING SYSTEMS TO THE NORTH OF
CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. SHOULD STAY BREEZY THROUGH MOUNTAIN PASSES AND
