Synopsis
A cold low pressure trough will bring more unseasonably cool, wet
and windy weather Wednesday with mountain snow above 5,500 feet.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the san bernardino and
riverside county mountains. Scattered showers will continue into
Thursday, followed by mainly dry weather Friday and Saturday
except for some scattered mountain showers. Another trough on
Sunday will bring more showers and gusty winds that may linger
into memorial day.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including
orange... San diego... Western riverside and southwestern san
bernardino counties...

scattered light showers through early this afternoon were
confined to the mountain foothills and san diego county valleys.

Amounts were light and ranged from 0.01 to 0.05" in most areas.

The highest total was at yucaipa ridge in the san bernardino
county mountains with 0.12". Scattered light showers will continue
in these areas through tonight. It was a windy day in the
mountains and deserts with gusts to 52 mph at the mt laguna
observatory, 53 mph at julian, and 55 mph at boulevard. Strong
winds and blowing sand caused the closure of indian canyon road in
the northern end of the coachella valley this afternoon. Thousand
palms had a wind gust to 40 mph, and the barstow-daggett airport
gusted to 63 mph at 11 am. A wind advisory is in effect for these
areas until 11 pm tonight.

Wednesday will feel more like january than may as a potent and
unseasonably strong upper low over oregon tonight digs south and
treks across southern california. Strong dynamics coupled with
cold air aloft under a warm may Sun will destabilize the
atmosphere for potential thunderstorms too. 500 mb temperatures
over the sbd mtns fall from -11c at 12z to -22c at 18z, and the
strong CAA will drop the snow levels to 5,500 feet. Convective
snow bursts will reduce vis at times. A winter weather advisory
will be in effect from 9 am to midnight Wednesday for the san
bernardino and riverside county mountains above 5,500 feet.

Palomar mountain and mount laguna may also see an inch or two of
snow.

The trough axis passes through on Wednesday evening and becomes a
closed upper low over the lower colorado river valley Wednesday
night. Residual moisture and instability will keep scattered showers
going through Thursday, but they will gradually taper off during
the afternoon and evening as drier air fills in from the north.

The weather from Thursday night through Saturday will be mostly
dry. Then on Sunday and Monday another deep low will move across
northern baja for more showers, high elevation snow and below
average temperatures. Depending on the ultimate speed of this
trough, showers may linger into memorial day. Regardless, memorial
day will be unseasonably cool day with high temperatures from
10-20 degrees below average in the valleys, mountains and deserts.

Outlook for next week: the GEFS ensemble projects the overall
trough pattern to prevail over the west for continued cooler-than-
average weather.

Aviation

msl will continue through tonight, with tops increasing to 7000 ft
this evening. Cig coverage will be greatest over sd county with high
confidence in ksan kcrq seeing prevailing bkn-ovc skies through

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.
