930 pm pst Mon jan 15 2018

Synopsis
A tranquil weather pattern will continue through Thursday, with
above average temperatures, periods of fog along the coast and
large surf at the beaches. Light rain, mountain snow showers and
below average temperatures may return Friday and Saturday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

Update...

fog hasn't developed yet and the offshore pressure gradient has
increased a bit this evening. So it is less likely that we will
have widespread dense fog overnight. Hrrr has really backed off on
the fog, keeping it offshore. So the expectation is for the fog
to be patchy. As such, have opted on not issuing a dense fog
advisory. No significant changes were made to the forecast this
evening. See previous discussion below for further forecast
details.

Previous discussion (issued at 145 pm pst Mon jan 15 2018)...

generally speaking, ridging aloft will remain in control through
Thursday, though some weakening is expected midweek as a trough
passes to our north. Thus fair conditions will continue in socal,
with minor day to day fluctuations in temperature and high cloud
cover. Along the coast and over the coastal waters, night and
morning low clouds and areas of dense fog will remain possible.

Light rain and mountain snow showers are possible Friday and
Saturday. Model trends have pulled back slightly on the potential
precipitation amounts and available moisture (forecast pw is now
below 1 inch) over the last 24 hours. Current thinking is that a
band of light precipitation is possible Friday with the frontal
passage, followed by scattered showers behind the front Friday
night and Saturday with cooler air aloft. In any case this is
will likely be a low end precipiation event. Temperatures will dip
toward the end of the week as well, likely falling to 5-10
degrees below average for all areas Friday and Saturday.

The overall weather pattern should remain somewhat active along
the west coast into early next week. No major storms are in the
forecast at this time, but at least ridging isn't favored.

Aviation
160500z... Coast... Scattered low clouds and patchy fog after 08z
tonight but unlikely to affect the coastal TAF locations. Vis will
lower to 1-3 sm br where any low clouds near higher terrain. Any low
clouds and fog will clear out shortly after daybreak. Otherwise,VFR
conds with sct-bkn high clouds through Tuesday evening.

Valleys mountains deserts... Sct-bkn high clouds through Tuesday
evening with p6sm vis.

Marine
Patchy fog will continue at times through Wednesday afternoon due to
a very shallow marine layer. A marine weather statement remains in
effect for low visibility around 1 nm through the period. Combined
seas of 7-11 feet with a long period will peak tonight through
Wednesday morning, and fade late Wednesday and Thursday in the outer
waters south of san clemente island. A storm is forecast to bring
hazardous winds and seas Friday through Saturday.

Beaches
Surf will build peak tonight through Tuesday night, before fading
Wednesday and Thursday from a long-period swell from 290 degrees.

Highest sets will be 10-13 feet on west-facing beaches. See the high
surf advisory and the surf forecast for additional details. A new
swell associated with another storm system will arrive Friday
afternoon into Saturday.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation will not be needed this week.

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.
