Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Central California
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
636 AM PDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An isolated afternoon thunderstorm will be possible near the
crest of the sierra. Otherwise a relatively dry southwest flow
aloft will prevail for the next few days. Little day to day change
in relative humidity and temperature will occur with terrain
driven winds predominating. The upper level flow pattern becomes
more favorable next week for an influx of monsoon moisture into
Southern California, resulting in a slight chance of mountain and
desert thunderstorms.
