Discussion
Skies have become partly cloudy today as some cirrus streams
across the area from the west. Mid-afternoon temperatures are
mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s inland and in the mid to
upper 50s at the coast. Surface high pressure gradually works
itself eastward over the next several days, and this allows for
mainly light south to southeast winds to return to the area.

We'll see warming temperatures through Saturday night with
readings eventually getting back toward the normal mid-november
lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. The onshore flow will also
bring a rise in moisture levels with low rain chances coming back
into the forecast beginning Saturday night and then increasing on
Sunday as a cold front moves into the area in the afternoon and
works its way off the coast overnight. Temperatures will cool back
down behind the front, and look for these cooler readings to
persist for much of next week with generally mostly cloudy to
cloudy skies and periods of rain. Will continue to generally carry
the higher rain chances near the coast and offshore and the lower
rain chances well inland (especially Monday night Tuesday and
again Wednesday night Thursday). Confidence on the timing of these
better rain chances still remains on the low side as we continue
to wait for better model agreement. 42

Marine
Generally light northerly winds and low seas will continue for the
next day or so with winds becoming onshore again Friday night. A
cold front will push off the cost Sunday night or early Monday, with
breezy NE winds and building seas in its wake. Scec conditions are
possible in the wake of this front. Tide levels are returning to
near normal.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
