Area Forecast Discussion

National Weather Service - San Joaquin Valley / Hanford, CA
Issued: Friday, February 22 2019 - 2:54 AM PST

SYNOPSIS... Drying and warming trend returns. However, temperatures will remain below normal for this time of year through the end of the week behind the recent cold system. Another weaker system will brush the area mainly to our north early next week.

DISCUSSION... After a really active couple of weeks, the area will get a breather from the action. Temperatures overnight will be colder than the last few nights as skies have begun to clear from the exiting cold trough that is now located over far southeastern CA and AZ and moving eastward toward the four corners region. A freeze warning is in effect for the SJV parts of the CWA and temperatures will drop near freezing and in a few locations drop below that mark. Dewpoints are currently in the mid 30s from Fresno County southward and drier air is moving into the northern parts of the CWA as dewpoints have fallen to the upper 20s already. This will allow for colder low temperatures in the northern areas than in the southern parts of the southern SJV. A freeze watch is in effect for late Friday into early Saturday morning and will be monitored for possible warning conditions. However, with shortwave ridging moving southward into the region may keep low temperatures mainly above 32 for the SJV. The threat of freezing is obviously not taken lightly at this time of year with many of the areas fruit and nut trees either laden with citrus or budding/flowering. Any long duration freezes during this time could be very damaging and costly.

With the shortwave ridging moving through the area on Saturday. A more zonal flow develops across the region into the beginning of next week. By Tuesday a weak tropical tap is progged to move across the area from the southwest. This could increase the chances for higher elevation snows and even a few showers for the lower elevations. At this time the moisture associated with this feature is on the small size. But buyer beware with the model data for the middle of next week because as we saw with the system at the middle of last week the models will struggle with any tropical system influx meshing with mid latitude storms. I would not be surprised to see the models struggle again with the solutions over the next several days. As of right now the guidance is indicating that the main tropical tap will go into northern CA and OR and be ingested into a mid latitude system from the Gulf of Alaska. However, any further deviation of the system southward would increase chances for precipitation for our forecast area. This will need to be monitored very carefully over the next several forecast periods. If things pan out as currently indicated then we will have primarily a zonal flow continue through next week. But in the meantime, caveat emptor.

AVIATION... Areas of lingering mountain obscuring IFR/LIFR in low clouds in the Southern Sierra Nevada, Kern County mountains, and Southern Sierra Nevada foothills through at least 18z this morning. VFR conditions will prevail at MCE, MER, FAT, VIS, and BFL today and tonight.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES... None.
