143 pm pst Sat feb 24 2018

Synopsis
Slightly warmer today with dry weather and breezy westerly winds
in the mountains and deserts. Weak to locally moderate east to
northeast winds will develop tonight along coastal mountain slopes
and through mountain passes. A cold low pressure system from the
north will create showers with lower snow levels Monday night
into Tuesday evening, along with a slight chance for
thunderstorms on Tuesday. Drier and a little warmer for
Wednesday, then cool and breezy with additional chances for
showers for late Thursday through Saturday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

at 1 pm pst, water vapor satellite imagery displayed an upper-
level shortwave trough moving across central california, with
northwest flow aloft over southern california. Expect fair and
cool weather today, with highs mostly 5-10 degrees below seasonal
normals. Breezy westerly winds will develop late this afternoon
through late this evening over the mountains and deserts as the
trough moves by to the north. Gusts of 30-40 mph are possible,
with isolated gusts near 50 mph in the mountains. Winds quickly
shift east to northeast late tonight through early Sunday
afternoon after the trough passage. 20-30 mph gusts are expected
through mountain passes and along coastal mountain slopes.

A frost advisory remains in effect tonight for portions of the
inland empire for low temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Areas
with breezy easterly winds will have higher temperatures
overnight.

An upper-level low then dives south towards our region Monday and
arrives late Monday night into Tuesday. Models have been in good
agreement with the timing of the system, however precipitation
amounts are still uncertain. H500 temperatures near -30 degrees c
will create the possibility of isolated thunderstorms.

Precipitation will be a challenge to forecast since storms could
be convective and create highly variable amounts across the area.

Snow levels start out around 4500 ft, then dip as low as 2500 ft.

Current snowfall estimates for elevations above 4000 ft are 2-6
inches, with greatest amounts in san diego county. Locally greater
amounts are likely in heavier showers. Highs Tuesday will dip
down 10-20 degrees below normal. Breezy west to southwest winds
are expected, with 40-50 mph gusts possible over the mountains and
deserts.

Weak ridging will build in Wednesday and early Thursday and help
high temperatures nudge closer to normal, but still be about 5-10
degrees below. A deep upper-level trough is expected to move
across the area sometime late Thursday through Saturday. Models
are in disagreement with timing and precipitation amounts as one
would expect being 6-7 days out, however the system looks to be
not as cold as the one earlier in the week, with current forecast
snow levels between 4500-6000 ft. Gusty west to southwest winds
can be expected again in the usual windy locations of the
mountains and deserts.

Aviation
242100z... Clear skies with unrestricted vis will continue through
Sunday evening. Local gusty west winds will occur late this
afternoon and this evening on the east slopes of the mountains with
local gusts 25-35 kt, then areas of northeast surface winds 15-25 kt
with gusts 25-35 kt will occur Sunday morning along southwest slopes
of the mountains and through below passes canyons, including vcnty
kont, ksbd, kczz and areas north of kpsp, along with moderate-strong
up downdrafts. Llws will be possible in some other areas Sunday
morning, including ksna.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is forecast through this weekend.

Elevated winds and seas will occur Monday through early Tuesday due
to a low pressure system. West to northwest winds will be 20-25
knots with gusts 25-30 knots, and choppy seas of 8-10 feet will be
possible.

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

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... Frost advisory from midnight tonight to 8 am pst Sunday for san
bernardino and riverside county valleys-the inland empire.

Pz... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
