AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
603 PM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.UPDATE...
UPDATED AIR QUALITY SECTION.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...MID AND HIGH CLOUDS OVER THE REGION AS A WEAK TROUGH
MOVES OVER THE AREA. SLIGHT COOLING EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND AS THE
TROUGH MOVES THROUGH. CLEARING AND WARMER TEMPERATURES BY SUNDAY
AS HIGH PRESSURE ONCE AGAIN DOMINATES THE WEATHER PATTERN.

&&

.DISCUSSION...WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A STRONG RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE IN PLACE OVER CALIFORNIA WITH JUST SOME HIGH AND MID
LEVEL CLOUD MOVING OVER THE TOP OF THE RIDGE. THUS FAR MOST
WEBCAMS FROM MERCED COUNTY SOUTH SHOW JUST CIRRUS CLOUDS HOWEVER
SACRAMENTO RADAR SHOWS SOME VIRGA TO THE NORTH. I DON`T EXPECT ANY
PRECIPITATION FROM THIS BAND OF MOISTURE FROM THE DEARLY DEPARTED
MARIE WHICH IS ABOUT 1000 MILES WEST OF THE BAY AREA. FORECAST
MODELS BRING A WEAK TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE ACROSS NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA ON SATURDAY AND SOME INCREASE IN WINDS ALONG WITH COOLER
TEMPERATURES WILL OCCUR. I DON`T SEE ADVISORY LEVEL WINDS HOWEVER.
FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE UPCOMING WEEK MODELS KEEP A DRY NORTHWEST
TO WEST FLOW IN PLACE INTO CALIFORNIA AND THE SUGGESTED HEIGHT FIELD
LOOKS LIKE NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR
DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

&&

NONE.
