152 pm pdt Mon jun 26 2017

Synopsis
The weather will not be as hot for the coming week as high
pressure aloft relaxes and the marine layer rebuilds. Locally
strong westerly winds will push through mountain passes and into
deserts during afternoons and evenings. The coastal clouds and fog
will spread into the valleys during the nights.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

the heat is just off Sunday's pace with temps averaging a degree
or two lower than Sunday at this time for many areas. Some areas
are hotter, however. Look for a few daily MAX temp records this
afternoon. A patch of persistent fog continues to hang along the
san diego coast and it is rather dense. Our dominant high pressure
ridge has begun to erode and that will continue as a low pressure
trough pushes the ridge a little southward through Wednesday.

That will bring cooler weather to all areas for the coming week.

The increase in onshore flow will push some locally strong winds
through the desert slopes of the mountains and through the
deserts the next few days (see fire weather info below). While
the marine layer will take time to develop, only a few patches of
coastal fog is expected tonight. Lower pressure aloft and an
intermittent eddy circulation will rebuild the marine layer and
form a more uniform cloud deck Tuesday night and beyond. Coastal
clouds and fog will extend farther inland into some valleys each
night and morning. Rather persistent weather through the coming
weekend with only minor fluctuations in coastal cloud fog
coverage and temperatures. Temps will get much closer to seasonal
averages by Wednesday.

Aviation
262030z... Coast... Patchy fog with a visibility of 1 sm or less
will continue along the san diego county coast through 03z. After
03z, fog should increase in coverage. The potential for dense fog,
with a visibility of 1 4 sm or less, to impact ksan or kcrq
between 03z and 15z Tuesday has increased from prior forecasts.

There is a low probability of dense fog between 03z and 06z and a
moderate probability between 06z and 15z at both airports. The
chances for dense fog at ksna remain low. Any fog should pull back
to the coastal waters by 16z Tuesday, leaving clear skies and
unrestricted visibility thereafter through 00z Wednesday.

Valleys... Clear skies, unrestricted visibility and light winds will
prevail through 00z Wednesday.

Mountains deserts... Breezy winds will develop over and east of the
mountain ridges this evening resulting in moderate up downdrafts and
llws. Otherwise clear skies and unrestricted visibility are
anticipated through 00z Wednesday.

Marine
Patchy dense fog along the san diego county coast will continue
through the afternoon, transitioning to areas of dense fog within 30
miles of the coast tonight.Winds will remain west northwest over the
coastal water through Friday. Periods of stronger winds are possible
this evening and Tuesday evening in the vicinity of san clemente
island, where local gusts may approach 20-25 kt for a couple hours.

Fire weather
Onshore flow will bring stronger and gusty southwest to west winds
to the desert slopes of the mountains into adjacent desert. The
winds in the high desert and north slopes of the mountains will
decrease late tonight and Tuesday, but continue strong and gusty
along the east slopes of the mountains into the lower deserts
through Tuesday night. Lowest daytime humidities will fall to
around 5 percent with poor overnight recovery. The combination of
strong gusty winds and low humidities will bring critical fire
weather conditions for the desert slopes of the mountains into
adjacent deserts. A red flag warning has been issued. Winds will
weaken some Wednesday with slowly increasing humidity Wednesday
night and Thursday.

Skywarn
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.
