559 pm pst Tue nov 13 2018

Synopsis
Areas of strong santa ana winds will continue through Wednesday
morning, though not as strong as the past 24 hours. Winds will
become more localized with a weakening trend Wednesday through
Thursday. High pressure aloft near the west coast will weaken for
Friday through Sunday with weak onshore lower level flow returning
and gradually strengthening. This will spread cooling inland and
bring a return of night and morning coastal low clouds and fog as
the marine layer slowly deepens.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

updated to remove the high wind warning. Winds will remain strong
along the coastal slopes foothills overnight but will be well below
high wind criteria most areas.

Critical fire weather environment exists over southern
california...

red flag warning in effect through 5 pm Wednesday coast to the
mountains.

The santa ana winds have been really cranking today. They peaked
this morning and have since trended lower. Widespread wind gusts
of 50-60+ mph have been observed downwind of the mountain crests,
through and below canyons and passes. Some gusts over 70 mph were
recorded, including 86 mph at sill hill (san diego county coastal
slopes), 82 mph at hellhole canyon (just E of valley center sd
county), 71 mph at alpine (sd county), and 71 mph at highland
springs (off the western end of the san gorgonio pass riverside
county). Winds have also been high through other corridors -
below the cajon pass, off the santa anas, camp pendleton area, and
from ramona through the santa maria valley to lake hodges rb area
with prevailing gusts of 40-50 mph. Dust was picked up by these
strong winds and visible in the air here at the office this
morning, but visibility has drastically improved as the winds have
subsided.

Hi-resolution models show winds continuing to blow strong downwind
of the mountain crests and through and below passes. We reached
the peak of the winds, but it will remain very winds in areas
through tonight with a gradual lessening through Wednesday.

While the winds weaken further on Thursday, the relative humidity
will continue to run very low, 5-10% away from the coast.

Previous long term discussion is below. There looks to be an
opportunity for much needed rainfall sometime next week as upper
level troughing develops to our west. This could drive weather
systems into the state. Timing location of these features are
uncertain. Taking into account the past few operational runs of
the global models and the GFS ensemble mean, it appears that the
best chance of rain is from thanksgiving or beyond, but could
happen earlier. We will continue to assess in the days to come.

Long term (Friday through Monday from previous discussion)
High pressure aloft near the west coast will weaken for Friday
through Sunday with a slow increase in lower level onshore flow.

This will spread cooling inland and bring a return of night and
morning coastal low clouds and fog. For the early to middle part
of next week, flow through the mid latitude jet across the western
and central pacific will split as it nears the west coast. Low
pressure systems in the southern branch of that split flow will
move to near the california coast. There remains more than average
spread in the details among the global models. This should bring
more cooling and at least some chance for precipitation by late
Monday or Tuesday.

Aviation
132100z... Gusty E to NE sfc winds continue to diminish at all
terminals, and will become mostly vrb after 23z tue. Periods of llws
will be possible as these surface winds decrease, with stg uddfs
likely over and W SW of mountains. Few-sct high clouds near 25,000
ft will continue to drift over the area into wed. Sfc winds will be
lighter wed, but areas of llws and mod-stg uddfts will still be
possible.

Marine
Very localized easterly wind gusts above 20 kt are possible at times
Wednesday, although should not be as widespread as today. Otherwise,
no hazardous marine weather is expected through Sunday.

Fire weather
The peak of the santa ana wind event occurred this morning.

However, winds will continue to blow strong through Wednesday
morning along the coastal mountains slopes, as well as through and
below passes and canyons. However, winds will not be as strong as
was observed overnight through this morning and will lessen
Wednesday-Thursday. The red flag warning continues in effect
through 5 pm Wednesday.

High pressure aloft near the west coast will weaken for Friday
through Sunday with weak onshore lower level flow returning and
gradually strengthening. This will spread cooling and higher
coastal humidity inland as the marine layer returns and slowly
deepens.

For the early to middle part of next week, low pressure systems
moving across the pacific may begin to impact portions of
california including southern california. This would bring at
least some chance of wetting rainfall, but with low confidence in
the details given the spread in the model forecasts.

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

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.
