Synopsis
Warm and dry through Wednesday. There will be periods of gusty
offshore winds into Wednesday morning. A low pressure system
moving inland through california on Thursday will bring onshore
flow with lower temperatures, gusty west winds in the mountains
and deserts, and more clouds. For Friday through the weekend, high
pressure aloft near the west coast and surface high pressure over
the great basin will bring a greater warming trend. There will
periods of mostly weak and gusty offshore winds near the coastal
foothills at times.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

sunny this afternoon, with temperatures as much as 11 degrees
higher than this time yesterday. Gusty northeast to east winds
continue in the mtns and coastal foothills. The highest gust so
far is 66 mph (at 7:20 am) in one of the most wind-prone
locations in the san diego county mtns. Several locations have
reported wind gusts of 40-60 mph in the last hour.

From previous discussion...

fair and warmer through Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure
builds over socal ahead of an approaching low pressure trough. A
sfc high in the great basin will bring offshore flow with periods
of gusty northeast to east winds near the coastal foothills and
below passes and canyons at times into Wednesday. Winds are
expected to be strongest through this afternoon, and again late
tonight through mid morning Wednesday with gusts to 45 mph at
times and isolated gusts of 55-60 mph in the wind-prone locations.

The low pressure trough will move through california on Thursday
and is expected to bring a return of coastal low clouds and fog
for late Wednesday night into Thursday morning with clouds
spreading onto the coastal slopes and into the mountains for
Thursday afternoon and evening. There will be strong and gusty
west winds in the mountains, deserts, and across the coastal
waters for Thursday into Thursday evening. It will be cooler for
all areas, with daytime temperatures in the 60s west of the mtns.

This trough is unlikely to produce measurable precip, but a few
sprinkles will be possible in the mtns.

After the trough moves east, high pressure returns to the west
coast. This will bring warm and dry weather for the weekend into
early next week. Temperatures begin to rebound on Fri but the
warmest days will likely be Sun and Mon when inland temps could
reach the lower 80s. Sfc high pressure in the great basin will
produce generally weak offshore flow with periods of gusty
northeast to east winds near the coastal foothills and below
passes and canyons.

Aviation
232100... East to northeast surface wind gusts of 35-45 kt are
possible at times through Wed morning along coastal mountain slopes,
foothills and through mountain passes. Isolated pockets of llws and
moderate up downdrafts are also expected through the period.

Otherwise, skc and p6sm vis through Wed afternoon.

Marine
Northwest wind gusts of 25-30 kt and combined seas of 7-10 ft are
likely Thursday afternoon through Thursday night as a low pressure
trough moves by to the north. A small craft advisory may be needed
through the period. Otherwise, no hazardous marine conditions are
forecast through Saturday.

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

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.
