255 am pdt Mon jul 23 2018
Isolated thunderstorms are possible near the mountains for this
afternoon. Strong high pressure aloft will move into southern
california through mid week bringing a period of very hot weather
except near the coast and at the highest elevations of the
mountains. The heat is expected to peak on Tuesday and Wednesday
with high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above average. For areas
near the coast... A shallow marine layer and a weak coastal eddy
will keep areas near the coast not quite as hot with higher
humidities. For late in the week into next weekend... The high
pressure will weaken slightly and begin to shift northward. This
will bring a cooling trend into next weekend with a return of
monsoonal moisture for next weekend into next week.
Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...
san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
Short term (today through Wednesday)
Strong high pressure centered over new mexico will move slowly
westward the next few days. This will bring a warming trend
through Tuesday and Wednesday. Desert high temperatures will be
little different for Tuesday and Wednesday while high temperatures
for coastal and valley areas are expected to peak on Wednesday
with Wednesday high temperatures generally expected to be 10 to 15
degrees above average. Several high temperature records are
expected to be tied or broken on Tuesday and Wednesday and
several record warm low temperature records are expected to be
set for tonight through Wednesday night.
Satellite imagery shows only a few patches of stratus near the
coast early this morning. The higher resolution models continue to
show a weak coastal eddy the next few nights. While this should
help to keep areas near the coast from getting quite as hot... Any
late night and early morning low cloud cover near the coast is
expected to be quite patchy.
With residual monsoonal moisture and daytime heating... A few
isolated thunderstorms are once again possible in the mountains
for this afternoon... Mainly on the higher peaks of the san
bernardino mountains and along the east slopes of the mountains in
riverside and san diego counties.
Long term (Thursday through Monday)
For Thursday... The high pressure will weaken slightly and move a
little to the north and east for Sunday and Monday. This will
bring a cooling trend through next weekend. As the high moves to
the north and east... The flow aloft across southern california
becomes southeasterly with some return of monsoonal moisture with
some mid and high clouds and a slight chance of thunderstorms near
230800z... Coast valleys... Mostly clear except for sct-bkn009-013
near the coast from 12-16z. Low clouds will clear by 17z.
Mountains deserts... Isolated tsra over the mountains this afternoon
and evening with surface gusts to 35 knots in any storms that do
West-northwest winds with gusts to 20 kt over the outer waters near|
san clemente island this afternoon and evening. No hazardous marine
A high surf advisory is in effect through Wednesday. A long period
16-19 second south-southwest swell from 200 degrees will bring high
surf today through Wednesday. The highest surf will be on the
southwest facing beaches of orange and northern san diego counties
where waves of 5-9 ft are likely. The surf and swell will gradually

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
