NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford California 
640 PM PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Update... 
we just sent a quick update to bump the cloud cover up this 
evening. Considerable middle deck ceilings will continue to spread 
out ahead of the upper low spinning off the socal coast this 
evening. No other changes at this time. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will move across the region tonight followed 
by slightly cooler weather Friday through Saturday with a slight 
chance of mainly afternoon showers over the higher elevations 
of the Sierra. Easter Sunday and Monday will be dry and warmer. 
A storm system will bring much cooler weather and a chance of 
showers Tuesday through Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
mountain obscurations in snow showers after 12z Friday. Otherwise 
VFR conditions will prevail across the central California interior during 
the next 24 hours. 


&& 


Previous disc... /issued 415 PM PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014/ 


Discussion... 
satellite loops show bands of high clouds moving across the weather forecast office 
Hanford County warning/forecast area /cwfa/ this afternoon. An upper- 
level low west of Baja California California is spinning theses clouds across 
the state...otherwise this low is having minimal impact of the 
weather for central California. 


At 21z /1400 PDT/...temperatures across the central and southern San 
Joaquin Valley were in the lower to middle 80s...and were running as 
much as 5 degrees warmer than 21z Wednesday. The rate of warming has 
slowed...and this morning/S update may have been premature. 


Satellite loops show the approaching upper-level trough along 132w 
as it approaches the Pacific coast. This trough will brush the 
southern Sierra Nevada Friday and Saturday...bringing a slight 
chance to low chance of showers to the mountains and the potential 
for a thunderstorm or two over the high country both days. Storm Prediction Center has 
most of the southern Sierra Nevada and part of the Indian Wells 
Valley under a general risk of thunderstorms in the day 2 convective 
outlook...and the Sierra crest in Fresno and Tulare counties under a 
general risk for day 3. Model quantitative precipitation forecast for this system continues to be 
light...and the 18z NAM now has no quantitative precipitation forecast for Yosemite compared to the 
0.04 inch on the 12z run. 


An upper-level ridge is forecast to build into California Sunday and 
persist into Monday...bringing a warming trend back to the region. 
Warming will be strongest Monday ahead of the next storm system. 


The global-composite water-vapor loop shows the next upper-level low 
to be near 44n/165w this afternoon...south of the eastern Aleutian 
Islands. This storm will reach California late Monday night...with 
snow showers along the crest near Yosemite National Park by daybreak 
Tuesday and precipitation spreading southward across the County warning forecast area Tuesday 
morning. 


The medium-range models are in good agreement with a sharp drop in 
850-mb temperatures over Fresno Tuesday morning...falling from 
around 15 c at 00z Tuesday /1700 PDT Monday/ to around 3 c by 18z 
/1100 PDT/ Tuesday. The snow level will fall from around 4500 feet 
near Yosemite to around 5000 feet at Kings Canyon and to around 6000 
feet in the Tehachapi Mountains. Although the snow levels will be 
relatively low...no snow is expected on the passes between the San 
Joaquin Valley and the Southland through the Tehachapi Mountains. 
The cold airmass also will bring an abrupt cooling to central 
California...with central and southern San Joaquin Valley highs 
dropping from the middle 80s to around 90 Monday to the lower to middle 
70s Tuesday...and upper 60s to lower 70s Wednesday. 


The 12z GFS forecasts a storm total quantitative precipitation forecast of 0.30 to 0.75 inch over 
the southern Sierra Nevada from this storm...while the 12z European model (ecmwf) 
only has a tenth of an inch or less. 


The main impact of this storm will be gusty winds over the west side 
of the San Joaquin Valley and across the mountains and deserts of 
Kern County as the cold front pushes through. Depending on how much 
rain falls ahead of the front...blowing dust could be a concern. 


Another ridge is forecast to build into California for next 
Thursday...bringing another round of dry and warmer weather. High 
temperatures next Thursday are forecast to recover to near normal. 


&& 


Air quality issues... 
none. 


&&

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