Synopsis
A weak west coast trough will bring warm days and comfortable
nights with low humidity through Tuesday. A ridge of high pressure
building over the southwest will bring hotter days Wednesday
through Friday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

Update...

stratus locked in pretty tight across the coast and into the
valleys this morning. Slow clearing will occur and we do
anticipate sunshine to return across all areas this afternoon.

The morning miramar sounding showed pw up to 1.07 inches. However,
mid level moisture will be moving out to the east today, so with
this drying we do not anticipate any shower to occur over the
mountains, so have left the forecast dry and no changes were made
to the forecast this morning. See previous discussion below for
further forecast details.

Previous discussion (issued at 403 am pdt Sun sep 23 2018)...

considerable coastal stratus is finally developing along the
coastal strip, especially in san diego county. Coastal gradients
are trending a little stronger onshore between 6 to 7 mb from san
diego to the deserts. There could also be some patchy fog along
the mesas and in the valleys. Expect the clouds will linger
through mid-morning and gradually retreat to the coast.

A shortwave trough over SW oregon today will dive SE across the
great basin through Monday. Temperatures through Tuesday will
trend a bit cooler across the region, with temperatures in the
inland valleys and high desert struggling to reach 90 degrees on
Monday, and even in the low deserts only around 100 degrees. The
very weak tail end of the trough will move across socal Tuesday
and Tuesday evening. A period of gusty offshore winds could occur
Tuesday as well due to transitory surface high pressure over the
great basin, likely to be a weak offshore period.

For Wednesday through Friday, a blocking pattern will setup over
the east pac, with an upper level ridge sandwiched across much of
california. This feature will bring a gradual warmup during this
period with temperatures in the mid 90s in the valleys and high
desert and about 105 to 110 in the lower deserts.

For next weekend the models do project some disagreements but in
general the upper level trough from the eastpac block will begin
to eject into N ca and or. Temperatures should moderate back
closer to near-normal levels for the end of september. Even with
that trough precip chances look very meager although there could
be a bit of precip over N ca and or in closer proximity to the
upper trough. For socal the trough could bring a period of gusty
onshore winds but not looking like much else in the sensible wx
department.

Aviation
231630z... Coast valleys... Stratus with bases 1300-1600 ft msl and
tops to 2000 ft msl within 15-20 miles of the coast will gradually
clear to the coast through 19z. Areas of higher terrain will be
obscured through 18z, though most vis below the cloud bases will be
over 5 miles. Stratus will develop again tonight, mainly 04z-08z at
the coast, spreading up to 25 miles inland by 12z with little change
to cloud bases tops and local vis 1-3 miles in the valleys 10z-16z
mon. Stratus will clear most areas 16z-18z mon.

Mountains deserts... Mostly clear with unrestricted vis through
Monday.

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.
