Synopsis
Fair and mild weather will continue this coming week, with coastal
clouds extendinig into valleys during nights and mornings.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

the marine layer provided a more uniform cloud coverage overnight
and this morning along the coast and in the western valleys. The
clearing today should be the usual fare, with all areas sunny by
late morning. A low pressure trough has begun to spin just off the
california coast. This will deepen slightly this weekend and
deepen the marine layer, allowing coastal clouds to extend just a
little farther inland for Sunday and Monday. At the same time,
the southerly flow on the east side of the trough will draw
monsoon moisture into southeast california. So we expect some
middle and higher clouds mainly Monday, but also some afternoon
cumulus over the mountains and deserts. Will these clouds produce
showers or thunderstorms? Right now we think not, but it's close,
so if the guidance trends more in that direction we'll probably
begin to include the small chances Sunday and even more on
Monday. Those days are coming into the high resolution model's
windows so we'll have more guidance to use and help us fine-tune
that forecast element. For those who like mild summer weather,
enjoy this coming week as it appears temperatures will come in a
little below average every day.

Aviation
181530z... Coast valleys... Look for the low clouds to clear to the
coast between 15z and 17z, with patchy low clouds lingering over the
coastal waters thereafter through 03z this evening. Light westerly
sea breezes are expected between 17z this afternoon and 03z this
evening. Low clouds with bases near 1500 ft msl will slowly return
to areas within 25 miles of the coast after 03z Saturday.

Mountains deserts... Mostly clear skies and unrestricted visibility
will continue through this weekend.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Tuesday night.

Beaches
A moderate period south swell (2-3 ft at 200 degrees) will continue
through this weekend. This swell will increase surf, with sets to 5
ft possible north of carlsbad. Moderate strength rip currents will
accompany the surf.

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

Sgx watches warnings advisories

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.
