NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford California 
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 California coast is 
interacting with the departed trough that impacted our area yesterday 
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 degree f from yesterday over the San Joaquin Valley and 
Kern County deserts and by 8-13 degree f over the southern Sierra 
Nevada and Tehachapi Mountains and southern Sierra foothills. 
Relative humidities are much lower than yesterday 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 California 
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 
degree f warmer than today. The ridge is prognosticated 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 prognosticated to break down on Wednesday as an upper 
level low pushes into the Pacific northwest. 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 middle-week low over the Pacific northwest 
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 prognosticated to break off and for a weak upper low 
off the norcal coast on Thursday and drop southward...forming a 
weak trough over California Friday through the weekend. Relative humidity and Omega forecasts 
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.
