area forecast discussion
national weather service san diego ca
1015 am pdt Thu oct 18 2018

Synopsis
High pressure building over the great basin will bring warm, dry
weather through Saturday. This santa ana pattern will also bring
gusty offshore winds to the mountains, foothills and inland valleys.

On Sunday and Monday, an upper level trough moving inland through
central california will bring some clouds to the mountains and
deserts. It will also bring back night and morning low clouds and
fog to the coastal and valleys areas.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

clear skies today and Friday with a santa ana pattern firmly in
place. The fire weather watch that was in effect from 3 am Friday to
2 pm Saturday has been upgraded to a red flag warning, but the
ending time was shortened to 10 pm Friday due to the lighter winds
and greater humidity recovery expected on Saturday.

High pressure building over the great basin will bring periods of
mostly weak offshore flow through Saturday with the strongest
northeast winds on Friday with gusts to 45 mph in the passes and
foothills. The offshore flow will bring warmer days to areas west of
the mountains. The strongest downslope warming will raise high
temperatures into the low 90s in parts of the inland empire and
inland orange county. MAX temperatures in these areas were raised a
few degrees Friday and Saturday.

No changes to the remainder of the discussion.

Long term (Sunday through Wednesday)
Upper level low pressure will move northward along the california
coast on Saturday and then weaken and move inland on Sunday.

While this low pressure system is expected to draw in moisture
from the southeast and east, most of the precipitation is
expected to remain to the east and northeast of southwestern
california. Mostly weak onshore flow will return on Saturday night
and continue into next week. Night and morning coastal low clouds
and fog may return as early as late Saturday night into Sunday
morning. The return of weak onshore flow will spread some cooling
inland for coastal and valley areas with not much change farther
inland.

Aviation
181620z... Clear skies, unrestricted visibility and generally light
winds today and tonight. Wind gusts 20-25 kt in foothills through
20z Thursday. Winds will begin to pick up in the mountains,
foothills and valleys Friday morning with N to NE winds 30-40 mph
and gusts to 50 mph. Llws likely 6-11z Friday as winds begin to
surface. Mod-stg uddfs on coastal-facing mountain slopes.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Tuesday.

Fire weather
The fire weather watch was upgraded to a red flag warning that will
be in effect from 3 am to 10 pm Friday. On Saturday the humidity
increases and the winds decrease slightly, and the fire weather
threat will lower and criteria for a red flag warning will not be
reached.

On Friday the northeast winds will be strongest in the passes,
foothills and in the inland empire below the cajon pass. Lowest
daytime humidity will be from 10 to 15 percent. There will be
humidity recovery Saturday to around 20 percent.

Onshore flow will return Sunday into early next week with a cooling
trend for coastal and valley areas and a further recovery in
humidity.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation will not be needed today.

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.
