NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford California 
205 PM PDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
a winterlike storm will bring rain and High Sierra snow to the 
district tonight. The weekend will be unseasonably cool with 
residual showers and higher elevation snow showers Saturday into 
Saturday night. Dry weather is expected Sunday through Tuesday with 
patchy late night and morning fog in the San Joaquin Valley. A 
warming trend will begin Monday and continue through Thursday as 
high pressure builds into California. 


&& 


Discussion...unless mother nature has any tricks up her sleeve... 
central californians are in for a real treat tonight. For the 
first time since late April...the valley...foothills and higher 
elevations of the County Warning Area will receive a thorough soaking during the 
next 24 hours. The storm that will bring the wet weather is still 
centered several hundred miles off the northern California coast this 
afternoon. A cold front well ahead of this storm shows up as a 
pretty healthy band of rain on radar that currently extends from 
Montana Shasta southwestward to the sfo Bay area. Although the front 
makes steady southward progress this evening...its precipitation 
will probably arrive by sunset in Merced County but not until 
about 10 PM in Kern County where trick or treaters stand a better 
chance of not getting rained on early this evening. However... 
southerly winds on the warm side of this front will be locally 
gusty and might kick up dust in some valley locations...especially 
on the west side...prior to its arrival. Strong dynamics 
associated with this cold front will support briefly heavy 
precipitation and possibly even thunder and lightning during its 
passage tonight. 


The arrival of colder air later tonight will bring snow levels 
down to about 6k feet in the southern Sierra. Above this elevation 
snowfall accumulations will range from as much as 6 inches in 
the mountains of Tulare County to around a foot over the highest 
elevations of the Sierra north of Kings Canyon by late Saturday 
morning. The upper level storm will be moving inland by then and 
will continue to generate instability showers into Saturday evening 
especially over the higher terrain. Otherwise...temperatures Saturday 
afternoon will be a good 8 to 15 degrees cooler than this afternoon 
under a good deal of cloudiness. Shower activity will diminish in 
most areas by late Saturday evening as the upper level storm exits 
into the Great Basin. However...clouds will bank up in the northwest flow 
behind it through Sunday morning along the west facing slopes of 
the Sierra and the Tehachapi Mountains where a little drizzle is 
possible. 


Sunday will remain much cooler than normal despite a return of 
sunshine. A strong northerly jet on the backside of the upper 
level trough will support a gusty breeze on the west side of 
the sj valley Sunday afternoon. Otherwise...dry weather will rule. 


A day to day warming trend will begin Monday and continue through 
at least Wednesday as an epac ridge of high pressure builds into 
California. As is normally the case after the first wetting rain 
of the season in the sj valley...the formation of patchy late night 
fog could cause some delays for morning commuters early next week. 


The ecm busts down the upper level ridge later next week while 
the GFS holds it strongly over central and Southern California. 
Temperatures on days 6 and 7 will remain much warmer than normal if the 
GFS is right or trend slightly cooler if the ecm wins out. We are 
currently leaning toward the model ensembles which forecast upper 
level ridging to persist over central and Southern California through the 
end of next week. Whatever the case...none of the models hint of 
any return to wet weather in the extended forecast period. So 
enjoy the Sweet treat mother nature provides US during the next 24 
hours. While it will be a drop in the bucket compared to our 
extremely large precipitation deficit...it certainly is better than 
nothing. After all...in the wake of this storm a view of the snow 
capped Sierra will be a welcome sight! 


&& 


Aviation... 
areas of MVFR with local IFR conditions can be expected with and 
behind a southward moving cold front this evening. Widespread IFR 
conditions will develop southward over the southern Sierra between 
03z Saturday and 06z Saturday with mountain obscurations likely in 
precipitation through 00z Sunday. MVFR ceilings and visibilities can 
be expected in the Sierra foothills and along the west and north 
facing slopes of the Tehachapi Mountains after 03z Saturday. 
Additionally...isolated thunderstorms are possible until 12z 
Saturday. Wind gusts of 35 knots or greater will continue along the 
Sierra crest until 09z Saturday. VFR conditions will prevail 
elsewhere across the central California interior through 00z Sunday.
