AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SACRAMENTO CA
423 AM PDT Tue Jul 29 2014

.Synopsis...
Moisture surge will bring a few sprinkles and thunderstorms to
portions of interior NorCal into mid-week. Hot afternoon
temperatures this week with a delta breeze each day bringing
decent cooling at night for the valley.

&&

.Discussion...
Little overall change to the large scale pattern expected through
the end of the week as strong high pressure remains over the
western US. Moisture will continue to work its way into NorCal
from the south over the next several days continuing a chance for
mainly late day showers and thunderstorms over the mountains.
Deeper moisture over the area this morning is resulting in some
isolated showers across the region.

Temperatures will remain hot through the week though at least a
light to moderate Delta Breeze is expected to continue providing
some relief to portions of the valley.

Models are hinting at some weakening of the ridge by the weekend
as a weak trough develops along the west coast.

&&

.Aviation...
Mainly VFR next 24 hours. 15-25 kts through delta. Isold showers
possible through 18Z, then afternoon TS over mountains today.

&&

.STO Watches/Warnings/Advisories...None.
