Synopsis
Light to moderate showers will continue at times tonight. The
final wave of our series of storms will bring moderate to heavy
Thursday morning through Thursday afternoon. It will also bring
strong winds to the mountains and deserts and snow above 8500 ft
elevation. The storm departs Friday and high pressure will bring
fair weather with periods of offshore winds this weekend and next
week.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

update...

a band of moderate showers moved across far norther orange county
and southwest san bernardino county this evening. Rain rates up to
0.60 inches hour were observed with this band, mainly along the
coastal slopes of the san bernardino county mountains. This band
will gradually weaken as it drifts east through midnight.

Otherwise occasional light to moderate showers will continue
tonight.

From previous discussion...

a strong jet stream will direct a plume of moisture into southern
california and will bring more widespread and moderate rain,
mainly north of san diego county. Some of the rain will be heavy
at times, particularly between about 6 am through 6 pm Thursday
(see hydro discussion below for more details). Snow level will
continue to climb tonight to about 8,500 feet for the rest of the
storm. Winds will pick up Thursday particularly in the mountains
and adjacent deserts. 30-40 mph winds with gusts to 50 mph will be
widespread, with isolated ridgetop gusts to 65 mph.

The storm moves out Thursday night and rain will taper off and be
done by sunrise Friday. Clouds should clear rather efficiently
Friday morning as the flow turns offshore.

The offshore pressure gradients tighten up Friday night to
produce areas of strong and gusty northeast winds in the foothills
and below canyons Saturday morning. We remain in dry northerly
flow with weaker offshore flow Sunday into Monday. Another trough
of low pressure drops south through the western interior and that
will boost the offshore flow Monday and Tuesday and winds look
pretty strong Monday night and Tuesday. High pressure aloft will
bring lots of sunshine and warmer weather, especially this weekend
when daytime temps should nudge above average. Still fair next
week, but a little cooler under that colder northerly flow that
arrives Tuesday.

Hydrology
Rainfall will be heaviest between 6 am and 6 pm Thursday. The
flash flood watch is in effect for orange, san bern, riverside
counties mountains westward and the greatest threat for flash
flooding would be between 8 am and 5 pm Thursday. The holy and
canyon burn scars are most susceptible for debris flows with rain
rates near or possible just over one half inch per hour. With the
heaviest rain still to come on top of the recent rainfall already
soaking the ground, urban flooding is likely and flash flooding
is certainly possible anywhere within the watch area. Rain tapers
off from northwest to southeast Thursday night and the coming week
looks dry.

Additional rainfall totals tonight through Friday morning...

orange county and inland empire... 0.75 to 1.25 inches
santa ana mountains and foothills... 1.5 to 2.5 inches
san bernardino county mountains... 1.5 to 3 inches, locally up to 5
inches on south facing coastal slopes
riverside county mountains... 1 to 2.5 inches
san diego county coasts and valleys... 0.50 to 1 inch
san diego countain mountains... 1 to 1.5 inches
san bernardino county deserts... 0.30 to 0.50 inch
coachella valley and san diego county deserts... 0.20 to 0.35 inch

Aviation
170515z... Coast valleys... Widespread bkn-ovc clouds will continue
through Thu with rain at times. Bases will mostly be 1200-2500 ft
msl but occsaionally be as low as 500-800 ft msl, with layers to
15000 ft msl or higher. Visibility will be 2-4 miles at times in
rain and fog, locally around 1 mile, with widespread terrain
obscurations. Some improvement in clouds will occur Thu evening with
sct-bkn clouds and bases mostly 2000-3500 ft msl and fewer
visibility restrictions.

Mountains... Widespread terrain obscurations in clouds pcpn fog will
continue through Thursday, with some decrease in obscurations
Thursday night. Areas of southwest to west surface winds 20-35 knots
with local gusts 40-50 knots will occur near ridges and desert
slopes through Thursday night along with strong up downdrafts.

Deserts... Widespread bkn-ovc clouds with variable bases, 3000-8000
ft msl will continue through Thursday with some decrease Thursday
night. Areas of 2-5 mile vis will occur at times in rain and or fog
through Thursday.

Marine
Large west-northwest swell will arrive Thursday afternoon, peak
Thursday night and early Friday morning, then gradually lower Friday
afternoon. The outer coastal waters (30-60 nm from the coast) will
have combined seas 12-16 feet at the peak, with 8-12 feet in the
inner coastal waters (less than 30 nm from the coast). Periods will
be 16-18 seconds. Due to large breaking waves, entrances to harbors
and bays will be difficult for small craft, especially mission bay.

A small craft advisory is in effect from 2 pm Thursday through 9 pm
Friday.

Beaches
Large west-northwest swell will arrive Thursday afternoon at 9 feet
(inner waters just off the coast) 16-18 seconds 285 degrees, peak
Thursday night and early Friday morning, then generally lowering
Friday afternoon and evening. Surf could locally reach 13-15 feet on
west facing beaches south of encinitas, especially around sunset
cliffs, with generally 6-11 feet most other areas. The high tide
around 530 am Friday will be around 6 feet, which could combine with
the surf to generate minor coastal flooding in some spots. A high
surf advisory is in effect from 2 pm Thursday to 9 pm Friday.

Skywarn...

skywarn activation is requested beginning at 6 am Thursday.

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... Wind advisory from 7 am Thursday to 7 am pst Friday for apple

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.
