Synopsis
Strengthening high pressure aloft and very weak offshore flow will
bring a warming trend through Thursday, followed by a cooling
trend for Friday into next weekend. The marine layer will become
shallower for Wednesday and Thursday with night and morning
coastal low clouds and fog not spreading as far inland. A trough
of low pressure may develop off the california coast for Sunday
into early next week. There is some potential for this trough to
draw some tropical moisture into portions of the southwest states
for early next week with very low confidence in the details.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

the global models remain in good agreement with the weather
pattern over the eastern pacific into north america into the
weekend. There remain significant differences over the eastern
pacific into the western states for Sunday into next week.

A blocking pattern will remain over the eastern pacific through
Thursday. The block will break down on Friday with a closed low
pressure system moving into northern california Friday night and
Saturday. East of that blocking pattern, high pressure aloft will
strengthen through Wednesday and change little on Thursday before
weakening on Friday as the closed low pressure center off the
california coast moves toward northern california.

Very weak offshore flow will develop for today, then strengthen
slightly for tonight into Wednesday. There will be locally gusty
east winds in the mountains today with gusts mostly less than 25
mph. The winds are expected to be more widespread for late tonight
into Wednesday morning in the mountains, below passes and
canyons, and in the far inland valleys near the coast foothills.

Winds are expected to gust to around 25 mph at times.

High temperatures will warm into Thursday with Thursday expected
to be the warmest day. A cooling trend will develop on Friday and
continue into next weekend. The marine layer is near 2500 feet
deep with satellite imagery showing widespread stratus over the
coastal waters, spreading into the inland valleys. As high
pressure aloft strengthens, the marine layer is expected to become
shallower with night and morning low clouds and fog not expected
to spread as far inland for Wednesday and Thursday. A slow
deepening trend is expected for Friday into next weekend.

As for the weather for the weekend into early next weak, as the
closed low pressure system moves into northern california on
Friday night and Saturday, another trough of low pressure may
develop off the california coast for Sunday and Monday. There
continue to be differences among the global models and their
ensemble members in the placement and amplitude of this trough.

Those differences are important in that they would impact the
ability of the trough to tap tropical moisture, possibly from one
or two as yet to develop tropical cyclones, into portions of the
southwest states. There remain a wide range of possible solutions
with very low confidence in any one of them.

Aviation
250900z... Coast valleys... Low clouds will fill all but the most
inland of valleys by sunrise. Cloud bases will be close to 1500 feet
msl with tops to around 2300 feet and reduced vis along inland
extent of clouds. Scatter out is expected by 17-19z, but with areas
of persisting clouds along the immediate coast. Low clouds will move
ashore after 02z and not as far inland overnight. Bases tops will be
trending lower going into Wednesday.

Mountains deserts... Mostly clear with unrestricted vis today and
tonight.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Saturday.

Fire weather
Very weak offshore flow will develop for today, then strengthen
slightly for tonight into Wednesday. There will be locally gusty
east winds in the mountains today with gusts mostly less than 25
mph. The winds are expected to be more widespread for late tonight
into Wednesday morning in the mountains, below passes and
canyons, and in the far inland valleys near the coast foothills.

Winds are expected to gust to around 25 mph at times. Lower
humidity in the deserts will expand into the mountains today, and
into the inland valleys on Wednesday. Low inland humidity will
continue through Thursday, but with weaker winds. Onshore flow
will strengthen for Friday into the weekend with a recovery in
humidity for the valleys into the mountains.

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

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.
