Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Central California
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
643 AM PDT Fri Jul 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An isolated afternoon thunderstorm or rain shower will be
possible near the crest areas 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 dominating. 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.
