December 14, 2019 - The National Weather Service Hanford Office reports a storm system will continue to bring additional rain and mountain snow to parts of the Central California Interior through Sunday morning.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Hanford CA 325 AM PST Sat Dec 14 2019 .SYNOPSIS...An upper level system will bring a chance of rain and mountain snow through Saturday morning. A second system will usher in cooler air, light precipitation, and gusty desert winds Saturday afternoon through early Sunday. Ridging Monday and Tuesday will keep weather quiet before another possible storm system impacts Central California during the middle of next week. && .DISCUSSION...Mainly zonal flow prevails over Central California with a few showers at this time. Otherwise, mid and high clouds continue to stream onshore. Expect showers to taper off later this morning, at least in the Central Valley. An ongoing chance of mountain precipitation continues through this evening into Sunday morning as another trough passes over Northern California into the Great Basin, or as an inside slider. We`re not anticipating much precipitation for the remainder of this weekend. However, gusty winds are likely in the Tehachapi Mountains and the Kern County desert areas, with the strongest gusts below the passes and canyons. Gusts to 55 mph are likely in these areas, although some locally stronger gusts are possible at times this evening and overnight into Sunday morning. Cooler overnight low temperatures are expected both Sunday and Monday mornings in much of our forecast area. While weather will be relatively quiet on Monday and Tuesday, fog development in the San Joaquin Valley will be a possibility during the nights and mornings. Otherwise, seasonal to slightly below average daytime temperatures will prevail during this period. By Wednesday morning, the next storm system arrives. The upper- level low and associated trough are projected to pass over Central and Northern CA until the afternoon and will be over the Great Basin by Wednesday evening. There are some notable model differences in terms of moisture, but it appears precipitation will be generally light with this next system. Another period of ridging is possible late in the week, and yet another storm system is possible by next weekend. However, there are significant differences in the latest model runs in terms of both strength and timing with this next system. More details to follow as we get closer.Source: NWS
