Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Central California
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
434 AM PDT Sat Aug 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...Isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms
expected mainly over the Sierra Nevada through the middle of next
week. The storms will be primarily north of Sequoia National Park
during the weekend. A trough forming off the California coast
will provide a moderate easterly flow aloft bringing a few of the
showers or thunderstorms into the foothills during the early
evening Sunday. Monsoon flow will bring additional moisture into
the district late in the weekend resulting in widespread threat of
thunderstorms over all the mountain and desert areas through mid
week.
