Area Forecast Discussion

National Weather Service - San Joaquin Valley / Hanford, CA
Issued: Sunday, June 24 2018 - 4:36 AM PDT

SYNOPSIS...Dry weather will continue for the next several days. Temperatures will remain above normal through Tuesday, then cool to seasonable levels during the mid to later part of the week.

DISCUSSION...Skies are clear across the central California interior early this morning and temperatures are trending a little higher in most locations compared to 24 hours ago. If this trend continues, today will end up as one of the hottest days so far this year. Our current hot spell is nothing extraordinary for June, but it will be the longest stretch of triple digit heat so far this year and it will pose health risks for people who've not yet acclimated to it. In the hottest valley locations, thermometer readings will reach 105 degrees this afternoon. This is a miniature heat wave compared to last June. Exactly one year ago, the central California interior was in the midst of a 7 to 10 day stretch of triple digit heat. During that relentless hot spell between the 17th and 26th of June last year, temperatures peaked between 107 and 110 degrees on at least a few of those days in the San Joaquin Valley. Overnight temperatures were also unseasonably warm during that same period and remained above 80 degrees in Fresno and Bakersfield.

As for the current pattern, a strong upper level ridge of high pressure is centered over the Eastern Pacific. This ridge will build into California during the next 24 hours then reposition itself over Arizona and New Mexico during the early part of the week. The ridge will weaken somewhat on Monday, then pump back up again Tuesday ahead of an upper level trough that approaches the Pacific Northwest coast. High temperatures will respond similarly, lowering by a few degrees Monday then bumping upward slightly in most locations Tuesday. Despite these minor fluctuations, high temperatures Monday and Tuesday will still be at or above the century mark over a majority of the San Joaquin Valley, lower foothills and the Kern County desert.

On Wednesday, the upper level trough will move inland over the Pacific Northwest and begin to settle southward into California. The models forecast this trough to deepen once it gets into the Great Basin later this week. So from Wednesday through Friday, we should expect an increase in onshore flow and a cooling trend with temperatures averaging much closer to normal across the CWA. The models are showing some differences in the overall pattern after Friday. If the GFS is right, temperatures will change little and remain pretty close to normal next weekend as the upper level trough sits fairly idle over the Great Basin. On the other hand, the ECM is rebuilding a strong upper level ridge over California next weekend which could bring triple digit heat back into the lower elevations. Hopefully the models will resolve their differences by then. Otherwise, dry weather will continue over the CWA for the next 7 days.

On a final note, please keep heat safety tips in mind during our current hot spell. If you must be outdoors during the hottest time of the day, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen and avoid strenuous physical activity. Although rivers might seem like an inviting place to seek cooling relief, their waters are cold and carry swift undercurrents. Venturing into a river could be deadly. Don't become the next victim of a water rescue or a drowning!

AVIATION... VFR conditions will prevail across the Central CA interior during the next 24 hours.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES... On Sunday June 24 2018... Unhealthy for sensitive groups in Fresno... Kern... Kings... Madera and Tulare Counties and Sequoia National Park and Forest. Further information is available at Valleyair.org
