Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
1230 PM PST Wed Dec 6 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will remain over the region for the next
few days. This will result in dry conditions with near normal
temperatures for the mountains and valley.


.DISCUSSION...Amplified ridge in the mid/upper levels will remain
well anchored over the west coast. The lower levels remain
relatively dry with this ridge aloft. Result will be some patchy
radiational fog across parts of the San Joaquin Valley the next
few mornings. Sierra-Nevada Mountains to remain clear and cool.

This does become a stagnant weather pattern over the next week with
little change in temperatures each day. For the San Joaquin
Valley, this means daytime highs mainly in the middle to upper 60s
with overnight lows in the lower to middle 30s. Patches of frost
can be expected about every morning across the northern valley.

Will update everyone when there are hints of a synoptic pattern
change, but that does not look to happen in the next 2 weeks.
Therefore, confidence remains high with sky cover and precipitation,
or lack thereof.


.AVIATION...Areas of MVFR in haze will occur in the San Joaquin
Valley overnight and early Thursday. Otherwise, VFR conditions
will prevail over the central CA interior through Friday. Light
surface wind for the San Joaquin Valley and adjacent foothills.


On Wednesday December 6 2017... Unhealthy for sensitive groups in
Fresno County.  Firepalce/Wood Stove Burning Status is: No Burning
Unless Registered in Fresno... Kern... Kings... Madera... Merced
and Tulare Counties.
