Synopsis for the far southern california coast.. At 1 am, a 1031 mb high was 1100 nm west of san francisco and a 1004 mb low was over northwest utah. A low pressure system will bring strong onshore winds and choppy conditions today that will be hazardous for small craft. Offshore flow will develop tonight and Tuesday with brisk northeast winds strongest between san mateo point and san clemente island. Offshore flow will prevail the rest of the week, with northeast winds nights and mornings alternating with northwest winds afternoons and evenings.

Synopsis
Strong onshore flow today with strong west winds in the mountains
and deserts decreasing this afternoon. The flow will turn offshore
late tonight into Tuesday morning with generally offshore flow
continuing into next weekend. There will be periods of gusty
northeast winds near and along and near the coastal slopes of the
mountains. After cooling today, high pressure aloft along the west
coast combined with the offshore flow will bring a warming trend for
Tuesday into next weekend.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
counties...

morning update:
no significant updates were made to the forecast this morning. Very
light showers occurred early this morning and a precip report was
issued. A light coating of snow occurred in the san bernardino
mountains; from what we can tell around an inch of new snow in most
locations. Gusty winds have occurred this morning with peak wind
reports issued. Between 5-7 am gusty winds occurred along the
southern orange county and the san diego county coastal areas with
gusts of 35-40 mph. Winds have since decreased but there could be
another brief increase of winds early this afternoon near the coast
with near-advisory level winds for a couple of hours. Otherwise the
onshore component winds will be on a decreasing trend this afternoon
across the region. Offshore winds will increase tonight with wind
advisory headlines already in place for that offshore wind event.

Short term (today through Wednesday)
A trough of low pressure over the western states will continue to
move inland today. Strong onshore low level flow will weaken this
afternoon with the flow turning offshore and strengthening late
tonight and Tuesday.

Satellite imagery early this morning shows clouds banked up against
the mountains and extending back toward the coast. There is also
more extensive cloud cover across portions of the high desert. A few
light showers will continue early this morning near coastal mountain
slopes and for coastal and valley areas of san diego county with a
few light showers or sprinkles also possible across portions of the
high deserts.

Strong west winds in the mountains and deserts will weaken this
afternoon. The flow will turn offshore late night and Tuesday with
northeast winds developing and strengthening along and near the
coastal slopes of the mountains and below passes and canyons with
periods of gusty northeast winds continuing into Wednesday.

The stronger onshore flow will bring cooling for today.

Strengthening high pressure aloft near the west coast combined
with the offshore flow will bring a warming trend for Tuesday and
Wednesday.

Long term (Thursday through Sunday)
High pressure aloft near the west coast may move toward the west a
little by Sunday and Monday. Periods of mostly weak to moderate
offshore flow will continue into Saturday with periods of gusty
northeast winds near the coastal slopes of the mountains and below
passes and canyons, mainly late nights and mornings. The warming
trend will continue into Saturday. As high pressure aloft shifts
toward the west, that will open up the possibility of a trough of
low pressure moving southward through the western states into the
southwest states. The ECMWF is the most aggressive with this
scenario. That would bring more clouds and cooling than currently
shown in the forecast for Sunday and Monday along with small chances
for light precipitation on Monday.

Aviation...

211650z... Coast valleys mountains... Sct-bkn clouds with bases 1500-
2500 feet msl becoming mostly sct this afternoon. Vis 3-5sm in
-shra and in valleys with areas of higher terrain obscured in fog
and -shra this morning. West winds will increase this morning, with
gusts 20-30 kt through the afternoon, then transitioning to E ne
winds tonight.

Mountains deserts... West winds 25-35 kt with gusts to 55 kt
producing strong up downdrafts and local llws over and east of the
mtn ridges. Winds weaken this afternoon before turning NE and
strengthening overnight.

Marine
Windy, choppy conditions and hazardous combined seas of 6-10 feet
will produce hazardous boating conditions today and tonight. For
details, check the small craft advisory in effect. Northwest winds
today will turn northeast early Tuesday morning with a few gusts
over 20 kt between san mateo point and san clemente island through
midday. No additional marine weather hazards are expected later
Tuesday through Friday.

Beaches
Very high tides will happen this morning and again Tuesday morning.

Higher than average surf will build today and diminish Tuesday. The
combination of these factors may produce minor coastal flooding at
the beaches. Check the beach hazards statement and surf zone
forecast for details.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation is not requested. However weather spotters are
encouraged to report significant weather conditions.

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.
