Synopsis
Today will be dry and a little warmer under weak high pressure.

A low pressure system moving inland through california on
Saturday will bring small chances for light precipitation for late
morning into the evening on Saturday in southwest california,
mainly near the coastal slopes of the mountains. It will also
bring stronger and gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts.

Sunday through Tuesday will be dry with a warming trend with the
next chance for precipitation around Wednesday and Thursday of
next week.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

Short term (today through Sunday)
A low pressure system centered over utah and arizona will continue
to move eastward today with weak high pressure aloft moving
inland and across california. Satellite imagery early this morning
shows low clouds banked up against the coastal slopes of the
mountains into the inland valleys. These clouds should scatter out
this morning. Radars also show a few lingering light showers near
the coast, mainly in san diego county. These should gradually
diminish through around sunrise.

Today will be warmer with the greater warming in the mountains
and inland valleys with lesser warming at lower elevations towards
the coast and in the lower deserts.

On Saturday, a weak low pressure system will moving inland across
northern and central california will strengthen the onshore flow
across southern california bringing slight cooling and stronger
and gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts. It will also
bring small chances for light precipitation for late morning into
the evening on Saturday in southwest california, mainly near the
coastal slopes. Rainfall of one tenth inch or less is possible.

Sunday will be dry with a warming trend with high temperatures 5
to 10 degrees warmer in the mountains and inland valleys and a few
degrees warmer toward the coast and in the lower deserts. This
will take high temperatures to slightly below average.

Long term (Monday through Thursday)
For Monday and Tuesday, a low pressure system will be off the west
coast with southwest flow aloft across california. There will be a
warming trend with high temperatures a few degrees above average
on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thursday, that low
pressure system off the west coast will weaken and move
inland through the western states. There continue to be
differences among the global models with the details. It will
strengthen the onshore flow across southern california bringing
cooling, stronger and gusty west winds in the mountains and
deserts, along with a chances for mostly light precipitation from
Wednesday into early Thursday.

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.
