Area Forecast Discussion

National Weather Service - San Joaquin Valley / Hanford, CA
Issued: Tuesday, December 11 2018 - 3:35 AM PST

SYNOPSIS... Dense fog across the foothills this morning, especially into the Tehachapi Mountains, creating hazardous travel conditions through the passes. Low clouds over much of the San Joaquin Valley this morning with some clearing expected through the afternoon. Patchy fog possible across the SJV Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Dry weather will prevail through at least Thursday, then a small chance of light precipitation Friday night. A stronger system is possible by next Sunday for moderate rain and mountain snow.

DISCUSSION... Upper trough is moving over southern California this morning with extensive stratus covering much of the San Joaquin Valley and the adjacent foothills. Ceilings generally range from 2-3k feet and is inhibiting Tule Fog across the SJV. But there have been reports of dense fog in the Kern County Mountains where the clouds intersect the slopes. A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect for this area through 10am Tuesday. A few light showers or drizzle is possible in this area as well through the early morning. Satellite water vapor imagery shows a dry slot over central CA and there is some erosion of the stratus deck over western Merced County with a bit of northwest flow in the boundary layer. Do expect some clearing skies across parts of the SJV this afternoon, but it's difficult to say how much. Areas that see clearing should warm up a little higher than yesterday.

Another s/wv trough up near the Queen Charlotte Islands will dive down over the PacNW tonight and then the Great Basin on Wednesday. This inside slider track will keep the moisture/dynamics to the north and east, so do not expect any precipitation for our area. Upper ridging builds in Wednesday night through Thursday for dry weather and slight warming. The next trough moves into the west coast on Friday but models show another weakening front arriving in central CA. So we may end up dry again but have kept slight to low chance POPs on Friday night for now. Any precipitation should be light with QPF of only a few hundredths of an inch, mainly in Merced and Mariposa Counties.

Saturday is looking dry with short wave ridging briefly passing by. Models are suggesting a stronger system is possible by next Sunday, but there remains a fair amount of uncertainty regarding track and timing. Current forecast has precip arriving Sunday afternoon with the bulk of the event favoring Sunday night. Lingering showers are possible into Monday then dry conditions return Tuesday as ridging builds in from the Pacific.

AVIATION... In the San Joaquin Valley and over the southern Sierra foothills, mainly MVFR conditions in low clouds with areas of IFR in mist, gradually clearing through the day. Patchy fog developing after 08Z Wed. In the mountains of Kern County, areas IFR and LIFR in low clouds and fog until 18Z, then becoming MVFR in low clouds through 00Z Wed. Elsewhere, mainly VFR conditions will prevail across the central CA interior for the next 24 hours.

AIR QUALITY ISSUES... On Tuesday December 11 2018...Fireplace/Wood Stove Burning Status is: No Burning Unless Registered in Fresno...Kern...Kings...Madera... Merced and Tulare Counties. Further information is available at Valleyair.org
