A weakening low pressure trough will interact with deep tropical
moisture today to produce light to moderate rain that will sweep
across the region, starting across orange and san bernardino
counties early in the day, then spreading south. Heaviest rainfall
will be on the coastal slopes of the mountains. Rain will
gradually decrease tonight and Friday morning. A colder trough
will move across california Sunday for cooler weather and light
showers into Monday. The trough will move very slowly east and
offshore flow will develop for some foothill winds. Higher
pressure aloft will bring warmer weather Wednesday.
Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...
san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
the main moisture plume and steady rain band still lurks to our
northwest along the central coast early this morning. Ahead of
that we have received some light to locally moderate intensity
showers through mainly the l.A. Basin. Winds have increased mainly
along the ridgetops of the san gabriel and san bernardino
mountains. Top gusts there have exceeded 40 mph. These winds will
increase this morning. The rain will gradually push through
southern california today from northwest to southeast. The
moisture plume falls apart and energy weakens considerably as it
progresses. As a result, total rainfall from this storm will
decrease sharply from northwest to southeast. See hydrology
discussion below for the rain details. The snow levels will be
quite high, above 8000 feet for most of this storm. The rain and
the strong mountain winds will gradually decrease tonight and
Friday morning. Residual low level moisture will keep skies from
clearing much Friday, but become partly cloudy. A large low
pressure trough continues over california this weekend, and
guidance features a shortwave trough rotating through southern
california Sunday. That appears to bring showers and colder air
Saturday night through Monday morning. Amounts won't be much with
this feature as it moves into arizona Monday. It will feel colder
Sunday and Monday. Offshore flow will get going Monday and Tuesday
with the northerly flow over our region behind the trough. We
could get some offshore winds in the foothills. The trough will
very slowly move out of our region Tuesday and Wednesday and some
legit high pressure aloft appears to build to bring fair and much
Rainfall amounts will be greatest over northern areas and especially
along the coastal-facing mountain slopes. Forecast additional
orange county and inland empire: 1 to 2 inches
san bernardino and san gabriel mountains: 2 to 5 inches
riverside and san diego county mountains: 0.75 to 2 inches
san diego county coast and valleys: 0.40 to 1 inch
upper desert: 0.25 to 0.5 inch
lower desert: 0.10 to 0.25 inch
shorter duration bursts of heavy rain as high as 1 2 inch per
hour are possible today over northern areas, where a flash flood
watch will be in effect. Overall rainfall will be light to
moderate, so rainfall rates should not exceed infiltration in many
areas, resulting in a beneficial rainfall.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
