Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis for the far southern california coast.. At 2 am, a 1002 mb low was near needles and another 1010 mb low was over catalina. Patchy dense fog could form along the immediate coast this morning. Moderate to locally strong onshore flow will bring northwest winds near 20 to 25 kt near san clemente island this evening. Weaker onshore flow will return Wednesday through Saturday.

national weather service san diego ca
857 pm pdt Mon jun 26 2017
The weather will not be as hot for the coming week as high pressure
aloft relaxes and the marine layer rebuilds. Locally strong westerly
winds will push through mountain passes and into deserts during
afternoons and evenings. The marine clouds and fog will return and
gradually spread into the valleys in the coming nights.
Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...
san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
the sky was clear across the socal at 8 pm pdt. Winds were
increasing across the mountains and deserts with onshore sfc
pressure gradients to the deserts increasing. The 00z miramar
sounding had a weak inversion based near 1300 ft msl with increasing
nw flow from the sfc t0 approximately 10k ft. Peak wind gusts
exceeding 60 mph were observed at burns canyon near the morongo pass
area in the san bernardino mts late today, with numerous other
sites across the high desert recording peak gusts in excess of 35
mph. The low relative humidity and strong winds have created
dangerous fire weather conditions across portions of the mts and
high deserts late today. A red flag warning is in effect for the
mts deserts and since the heat will be easing, the heat advisories
and warnings have been cancelled.
The development of any widespread stratus fog overnight still
appears unlikely, despite the onshore flow. It appears the indirect
circulation associated with a mid-level jet streak is resulting in
subsidence over the ca bight and will discourage the redevelopment
of marine layer clouds until sometime tomorrow. It will also keep
the inversion very low, so if anything, there may be patchy dense
fog along the immediate coast by morning, otherwise clear.
A minor forecast update was issued this evening to add some smoke to
the coachella valley and riverside county mts and reduce the stratus
and fog over the coastal waters and coastal areas. Also to remove
the heat headlines.
From previous discussion...
the heat is just off Sunday's pace with temps averaging a degree
or two lower than Sunday at this time for many areas. Some areas
are hotter, however. Look for a few daily MAX temp records this
afternoon. A patch of persistent fog continues to hang along the
san diego coast and it is rather dense. Our dominant high pressure
ridge has begun to erode and that will continue as a low pressure
trough pushes the ridge a little southward through Wednesday.
That will bring cooler weather to all areas for the coming week.
The increase in onshore flow will push some locally strong winds
through the desert slopes of the mountains and through the
deserts the next few days (see fire weather info below). While
the marine layer will take time to develop, only a few patches of
coastal fog is expected tonight. Lower pressure aloft and an
intermittent eddy circulation will rebuild the marine layer and
form a more uniform cloud deck Tuesday night and beyond. Coastal
clouds and fog will extend farther inland into some valleys each
night and morning. Rather persistent weather through the coming
weekend with only minor fluctuations in coastal cloud fog
coverage and temperatures. Temps will get much closer to seasonal|
averages by Wednesday.
270300z... Coast... Clear skies and unrestricted vis will prevail this
evening. Patchy fog will likely form along the immediate coast,
mainly san diego county, after 08z with vis of 1 4 mile or less
accompanied by CIGS of less than 300 ft msl possible. Confidence is
low of fog reaching any airports, including ksan and kcrq. Most
areas should clear by 16z tue. Stratus is likely Tuesday night with
somewhat higher cloud bases.
Valleys... Clear skies with unrestricted vis will prevail through tue
evening, except vcnty kbuo where smoke will occur tonight, possibly
Mountains deserts... Except for smoke near san gorgonio pass and
aloft vcnty kpsp and ktrm tonight and possibly tue, clear skies with
unrestricted vis will prevail through Tue evening. Strong gusty
winds will occur from the mountain crests east through the desert
slopes and locally into the deserts through 05z with w-sw gusts 35-
55 knots, then gradually weakening late tonight and Tuesday with w-
sw gusts 25-35 knots. Occasional llws will occur over and east of
the mountains through Tuesday evening.
Patchy dense fog could occur late tonight and Tuesday morning over
the coastal waters with vis below 1 mile. Stronger wnw winds Tuesday
evening near san clemente island could bring local gusts 20-25 kt.
Onshore flow will bring stronger and gusty southwest to west winds
to the desert slopes of the mountains into adjacent desert. The
winds in the high desert and north slopes of the mountains will
decrease late tonight and Tuesday, but continue strong and gusty
along the east slopes of the mountains into the lower deserts
through Tuesday night. Lowest daytime humidities will fall to
around 5 percent with poor overnight recovery. The combination of
strong gusty winds and low humidities will bring critical fire
weather conditions for the desert slopes of the mountains into
adjacent deserts. A red flag warning has been issued. Winds will
weaken some Wednesday with slowly increasing humidity Wednesday
night and Thursday.
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.
