Synopsis
A low pressure system off the west coast will move slowly inland
during the weekend. This will bring stronger onshore flow to
southern california with slow cooling spreading inland and gusty
southwest to west winds in the mountains and deserts in the
afternoons and evenings. Slow deepening of the marine layer will
spread night and morning coastal low clouds and fog into the
western valleys this morning... And into the far inland valleys
through the weekend. For Monday and Tuesday... A low pressure
system from the northwest will bring more cooling... Stronger
onshore flow will stronger and gusty northwest to west winds in
the mountains and deserts... And deepening of the marine layer onto
the coastal mountain slopes with small chances for light
precipitation along and west of the mountains.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

a low pressure system off the west coast will move slowly inland
during the weekend. This will bring stronger onshore flow to
southern california with slow cooling spreading inland.

That low pressure system will draw subtropical moisture with some
mid and high clouds into southern california today... Decreasing
for tonight and Friday. The marine layer is near 1600 feet deep.

Areas of coastal low clouds and fog will spread into portions of
the western valleys early this morning. As the marine layer slowly
deepens... Night and morning coastal low clouds and fog will
spread into the far inland valleys for Friday through the weekend.

Stronger onshore flow will also bring periods of gusty southwest
to west winds in the mountains and deserts during the afternoons
and evenings.

For early next week... The global models are in better agreement
with a low pressure system from the northwest that will move into
southern california Tuesday. This will bring additional cooling
for Monday and Tuesday. There will be stronger and gusty
northwest to west winds in the mountains and deserts. The marine
layer will deepen onto the coastal mountain slopes. There are
small chances for light precipitation west of the mountains early
Monday and slightly greater chances for light precipitation along
and west of the mountains for Tuesday into early Wednesday.

Aviation
260900z... Coast valleys... Low clouds will cover coastal areas and
head into portions of the inland valleys by sunrise. Cloud bases
will be around 1200-1500 feet msl with tops to 2000 feet. Reduced
vis along higher terrain within that elevation layer. Clearing from
inland to the coast will occur 15-19z. Coastal clouds will move
ashore after 02z this evening with similar bases and tops, but
probably lift overnight and extend a little farther inland.

Mountains deserts... Local surface wind gusts 25-35 knots from the
west-northwest will occur late this afternoon evening over portions
of the desert mountain slopes and through san gorgonio pass.

Marine
No hazardous marine conditions are expected through tonight.

Stronger onshore flow will bring winds that are forecast to cause
choppy and hazardous conditions Friday through Monday, mainly in the
outer coastal waters.

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

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.
