912 pm pdt Sat jul 21 2018
Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the mountains and locally
into the deserts in the afternoons before high pressure builds over
the region Tuesday. Hot weather will develop inland through Thursday
as the marine layer shrinks back to the immediate coast. Some patchy
late night and morning low clouds and fog may remain along the
coast, otherwise fair skies will prevail. The high pressure will
weaken by the end of next week, along with a a return of monsoonal
flow. This will bring more clouds, higher humidity, and cooling.
Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...
san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
after some isolated showers thunderstorms this afternoon, just a few
high clouds were left passing from south to north, and patchy marine
clouds near the coast at 9 pm pdt. The 00z miramar sounding had a 5c
inversion based near 1850 ft msl. Winds were SE 5-15 kt above the
inversion with a pw of just over 1.5 inch. No precip reports were
received today in our cwa.
Based on the forecast soundings from the 00z NAM over the next
couple of days, we may have to continue a small chance for showers
and thunderstorms over the mts each afternoon. Otherwise, temps will
continue to trend higher each day with very hot summer weather on
tap inland much of the week. No forecast changes.
From previous discussion...
a ridge will slowly build west Sunday through the middle of next
week, becoming centered over southern ca and western az by
Wednesday. This will create a heat wave over the region, with
Tuesday and Wednesday expected to be the hottest days. Highs will be
5-15 degrees f above normal as h850 temperatures peak around 33 deg
c near desert areas and 30 deg c near the coast. Excessive heat
warnings are in effect for most inland areas, and a heat advisory is
in effect for coastal areas a few miles inland from the beach for
Monday through Thursday. A shallow marine layer is expected to keep
locations along the immediate coast not as hot. Night and morning
low clouds will be patchy, but should develop across coastal areas
throughout the week. Some inland areas won't get much overnight
temperature recovery, with low desert areas only getting down into
the 90s, and foothill locations only lowering into the 80s Tuesday
through Thursday mornings. Please see the excessive heat warning and
heat advisory for additional details, and the climate section below
for high temp records.
The ridge will move a bit to the northeast at the end of next week,
which will help lower our highs back near seasonal normals, and
possibly help return monsoonal moisture to the region for
afternoon evening mountain desert storms.
220325z... Coast valleys... Bkn-ovc low clouds with bases 1200-1500
feet msl and tops around 2200 feet msl will spread inland about 15|
miles tonight. Timing is uncertain but impacts at coastal TAF sites
are likely between 06z and 17z. Expect clearing to the coast between
16z and 18z Sunday.
Mountains deserts... Sct-bkn clouds at or abv 12000 ft msl with
unrestricted vis through Sunday morning.
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Thursday.
Swells from the southern hemisphere will arrive at socal beaches
late Sunday, peaking Tuesday through Wednesday. Surf of 6-8 ft is
expected along south and southwest-facing beaches of orange and
northern san diego counties, along with strong rip currents. Swells
and surf will begin to subside on Thursday.

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.
