National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
405 AM PST Mon Nov 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...A weak trough will bring lots of mid and high level
clouds and a chance of light precipitation to the Yosemite area
today. A ridge of high pressure off the Baja coast will build
north leading to a warming trend along with low humidity readings
for the remainder of the week. Rain chances will increase again
late next weekend as the ridge shifts off to the east.
