.DISCUSSION...A LARGE UPPER HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL SLOWLY BUILD
INLAND THROUGH TUESDAY RESULTING IN DECREASED CLOUDS AND A MORE
STABLE ATMOSPHERE. THIS WILL STRENGTHEN THE INVERSION OVER THE SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY WHERE FOG AND LOW CLOUDS WILL PERSIST. A LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL CROSS TO THE NORTH OF OUR AREA ON CHRISTMAS
EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY...TEMPORARILY DISPLACING THE UPPER RIDGE AND
BRINGING A COOLING TREND TO THE DISTRICT. THE RIDGE WILL THEN BUILD
BACK INLAND LATE IN THE WEEK.
