314 am pdt Sun jul 22 2018
Isolated thunderstorms are possible near the mountains for this
afternoon. Strong high pressure aloft will move into southern
california through mid week bringing a period of very hot weather
except near the coast and at the highest elevations of the
mountains. The heat is expected to peak on Tuesday and Wednesday
with high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above average. For areas
near the coast... A shallow marine layer and a weak coastal eddy
will keep areas near the coast not as hot with patchy night and
morning low clouds and fog. For late in the week into next
weekend... The high pressure will weaken slightly and begin to
shift northward. This will bring a slow cooling trend into next
weekend with a return of monsoonal moisture for next weekend into
the following week.
Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...
san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
there were a couple of brief isolated thunderstorms Saturday
afternoon... One on the north slopes of the san bernardino
mountains and a second in the mountains on the border between
riverside and san diego counties. Based on the location of
afternoon convergence boundaries... The most likely locations for
any isolated thunderstorms for this afternoon is over the higher
elevations of the san bernardino mountains and along the east
slopes of the mountains of riverside and san diego counties.
Satellite imagery shows patchy stratus over the coastal waters
extending locally inland along portions of the san diego county
coast with the coverage less than 24 hours ago.
The center of strong high pressure aloft will move slowly westward
from new mexico today... To arizona Tuesday... And along the lower
colorado river on Wednesday. This will bring a strong warming
trend for the early to middle part of the week. The heat is
expected to peak on Tuesday and Wednesday with high temperatures
10 to 15 degrees above average. A shallow marine layer and weak
coastal eddy will moderate the heat near the coast.
For late in the week into next weekend... High pressure will
weaken slightly and begin to move slowly northward. This will
bring a slow cooling trend into next weekend. As the high pressure
aloft begins to shift northward... Southeast flow aloft will
develop across southern california bringing a return of some
220900z... Coast valleys... Sct-bkn010-014 tops 020 at ksan, kcrq and
ksna through 17z. After 17z sct100. Low clouds with similar bases
returning between 02z-05z Monday.
Mountains deserts... Sct-bkn100 today and tonight. Isolated tsra
over the mountains between 20z-03z.
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Thursday.
High surf advisory will be in effect Monday through Wednesday.
Building south-southwest swell from 200 degrees late today will
bring high surf Monday through Wednesday. The highest surf will be
on the southwest facing beaches of orange and northern san diego
county where waves of 6-8 ft are forecast. The surf and swell will
begin to fade Thursday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
