Synopsis
A high pressure ridge will bring seasonally hot inland weather
through the weekend. A weak surge of monsoonal moisture early next
week could produce a few afternoon thunderstorms over the
mountains Monday and Tuesday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

a few brief showers developed in southeast san diego county this
afternoon, but for most of us skies were clear and dry this
afternoon and evening. As we watch those clouds fade in the east,
we can watch the coastal clouds gather in the west. Tonight will
feature clear skies except for a more uniform and extensive
coverage of coastal clouds, although the clouds won't reach the
inland valleys. No more showers for a while as our atmosphere
continues to dry out through Friday. High pressure aloft will
build westward into nevada this weekend to bring above average
temperatures. Saturday looks like the warmest day with MAX temps
in the 90s in the inland empire, low 100s in the high desert and
close to 110 in the low desert. Monsoon moisture begins to
increase again over the weekend, streaming underneath that nevada
high. By Monday the moisture and instability appear just enough to
produce a few thunderstorms mainly in the mountains Monday and
Tuesday. A trough in the northwest nudges the ridge aside next
week and sends the monsoon moisture with it. That would bring us
back to seasonal weather and dry everywhere.

Aviation
210300z... Coast valleys... Areas of stratus will continue to develop
near the immediate coast through 04z, then reach most coastal
airports 04z-08z, spreading up to 20 miles inland overnight. Bases
will be 900-1300 ft msl with tops to 1500 ft msl. Local vis 3-5
miles will occur 08z-16z. Most areas will clear 15z-17z fri, with
stratus developing again Fri evening.

Mountains deserts... Local surface gusts over 25-35 knots from the
west will occur this evening and again Fri late afternoon evening on
desert mountain slopes and through san gorgonio pass. Otherwise,
mostly clear skies with unrestricted vis will prevail through Friday
night.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Tuesday.

Beaches
High tides will reach near or above 7 feet during the mid-to-late
evenings each day Friday through Sunday. This could result in
minor tidal overflow at low-lying beach areas during times of high
tide. A beach hazards statement has been issued.

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

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... Beach hazards statement from Friday afternoon through Sunday
evening for orange county coastal areas-san diego county
coastal areas.

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.
