Synopsis
Fair weather with temperatures slightly above seasonal normals
will prevail most of this week. An upper level trough will move
across the area on Tuesday, but no precipitation is expected due
to limited moisture. Surface high pressure building into the
great basin behind the trough will bring a weak to moderate santa
ana to southern california midweek with the gustiest winds
occurring through and below passes on Thursday morning. An upper
level trough will approach the u.S. West coast this weekend, but
remaining too far north, so dry weather is forecast to continue
through week's end.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

mid high level cloudiness will continue over the area today, but
will be on the decrease tonight. Tranquil weather will continue
under high pressure aloft.

An upper level trough will move quickly across the area on
Tuesday. However, moisture looks too limited with this feature. As
such, dry weather is forecast.

Surface high pressure will build into the great basin behind the
trough. This will result in offshore winds with a weak to moderate
strength santa ana forecast with the peak occurring Thursday
morning with gusty winds through and below passes and along the
foothills. Dry weather under abundant sunshine will prevail mid-
late week. Temps will be warmest on Thursday with highs soaring
well into the 70s west of the mountains due to the offshore,
downsloping winds.

An upper level trough will approach the u.S. West coast this
weekend, but remaining too far north, so dry weather is forecast
to continue through week's end. GEFS shows light precipitation
finally making it into socal Monday, december 17th, but nothing
substantial as the trough and bulk of the moisture remains far to
the north. So the overall weather pattern is a tranquil one with
dry weather prevailing, at least through the upcoming weekend.

Aviation
101000z... Broken high clouds at above 20000 feet msl with
unrestricted vis today and tonight. Patchy coastal low clouds with
bases around 2000 feet msl possible at coastal airports after 06z
into Tuesday morning.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Friday.

Beaches
A long-period west-northwest swell from 290 degrees will arrive
today, boosting surf to as high as 6 feet Tuesday, mainly in san
diego county.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation is not needed.

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

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.
