NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford California 
412 am PST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


..updated for dense fog advisory... 


Synopsis...another low pressure system will bring a renewed chance of 
showers to mainly the mountains and desert Wednesday night into Friday. 
Otherwise expect mainly dry conditions with near to slightly above average 
temperatures through the next several days. 


&& 


Discussion... 
fog has become dense across parts of the San Joaquin Valley early 
this morning...falling to less than 1/4 mile. The dense fog will 
likely spread a bit more by daybreak. Visibilities are expected 
to improve by mid-morning. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 222 am PST Wednesday Jan 28 2015/ 


Discussion... 
patchy fog is beginning to develop in the San Joaquin Valley early 
this morning and will likely become dense in some areas toward 
daybreak. Expect it to clear quickly this morning as another low 
pressure system approaches the area. 


High level cloud cover will be on the increase today as the upper 
trough moves towards the coast. The deepest moisture with this 
system will remain well to our south. But there is expected to be 
enough energy and moisture to bring scattered showers to the 
mountains and desert areas tonight through Friday. The San Joaquin 
Valley is expected to remain dry. There could be some patchy 
fog Thursday and Friday mornings...but there should be enough 
cloud cover to prevent it from being widespread. 


Once the upper low exits to the east Saturday morning...high 
pressure will build over the region Saturday into Sunday. Both the 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) are indicating a flattening of the ridge on Monday 
as a shortwave moves across the Pacific northwest and brushes 
northern California. At this time...it looks like any chance of 
precipitation will stay to our north Monday. The ridge then 
quickly rebuilds Tuesday and remains through the week. Areas of 
night and morning fog are likely to form in the San Joaquin 
Valley beginning Saturday morning and continuing through the week. 


&& 


Aviation... 
visibilities will become vlifr with dense fog by 12z for all 
terminals except kbfl. Visibilities are forecast to improve 
significantly between 18z and 19z. Otherwise...patchy MVFR 
visibility will prevail after 19z through the early evening hours 
before a return of dense fog early Thursday morning. 


&& 


Air quality issues... 
on Wednesday January 28 2015... fireplace/wood stove burning 
status is: no burning unless registered in Fresno... Kern... 
Kings... Madera... Merced and Tulare counties. 
Further information is available at valleyair.Org

The level of certainty for days 1 and 2 is medium. 
The level of certainty for days 3 through 7 is medium.
