Synopsis
Mid and high clouds have moved to the east this afternoon.

Decreasing clouds with weak offshore flow developing on Wednesday,
however daytime temperatures west of the mountains will remain in
the sixties to low seventies. High pressure aloft and weak
offshore flow will bring warming west of the mountains for
Thursday with locally gusty northeast winds near the coastal
slopes of the mountains. A little cooler for Friday as onshore
flow returns, then a little warmer for next weekend under weak
high pressure aloft.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

today through Thursday... A weak upper level low pressure system
centered over the california bight this morning continues to move
toward the southeast. The subtropical moisture being advected
northward in the form of mid and high clouds has been displaced
eastward this afternoon. A few low clouds linger over the coastal
areas and inland valleys. Patchy low clouds and fog will likely
return to areas west of the mtns and could increase in coverage
late tonight.

High temperatures through Wednesday will vary only slightly from
those of Monday.

For Thursday, building high pressure aloft along the west coast
and surface high pressure over the great basin and central rockies
will bring warming west of the mountains and gusty east to
northeast winds near the coastal slopes of the mountains and below
passes and canyons.

Friday through Monday... A trough of low pressure moving inland
along the west coast on Friday will bring a return of onshore flow
with cooling for coastal and valley areas. The return of onshore
flow will also bring a return of patchy coastal low clouds and fog
for Friday night into Saturday morning. High temperatures will
increase by a few degrees for Saturday and Sunday with weaker
onshore flow and with weak high pressure aloft moving inland
through the western states.

For Sunday night into Monday, a weak low pressure system in the
southern stream of the westerlies may amplify somewhere in the
vicinity of the southwest states. If it amplifies a little to the
west of southern california, it could bring some light
precipitation to portions of southern california. It it amplifies
to the east, the passage through southern california would be
mostly dry. This brackets the range of global model solutions for
early next week in the vicinity of the southwest states with no
clear model preference yet to emerge. The most recent runs of the
deterministic medium-range models continue to disagree
significantly on the potential for precip next Tuesday. The gfs
favors a wet solution and the european model favors a dry
solution.

Aviation
112000z... Generally clear skies and unrestricted visiblities, then
around 12 06z this evening areas of bkn low clouds based around 800-
1600 feet msl and vis reduced to 3-5sm. Tops around 2000 feet msl.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Saturday.

Beaches
Surf will create a high rip current risk today. Surf up to 6 feet is
forecast, mainly in southern san diego county, before subsiding
tonight and Wednesday.

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

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.
