Synopsis
High pressure aloft near the west coast combined with weak
offshore lower level flow will bring record setting heat through
thanksgiving. High pressure aloft will begin to weaken on Friday
with cooling beginning to spread inland. Onshore lower level flow
will strengthen for Sunday and Monday with greater cooling and
stronger and gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts.

Moderate strength santa ana winds and warming may follow for next
Tuesday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

the forecast for record heat is on track today record highs in many
areas. 8 am temperatures were running several degrees higher than 24
hour ago, especially where the offshore winds were keeping the
atmosphere well mixed. Campo was 76 degrees with east winds 21g31
mph. Miramar was 82(!) with east winds at 5 mph. The warmth reached
all the way to the coast where some sites were exceptionally warm
including la jolla scripps with a report of 76f and northeast winds
at 3 mph.

Pressure gradients were more strongly offshore this morning (-12.0)
compared to yesterday (-9.7), resulting in stronger northeast winds
in the mountains and passes. Sill hill, typically the windiest
location in the county, peaked at 58 mph at 7:30 am. Fremont
canyon hit 50 mph and pleasants peak reached 47 mph.

*from previous discussion*
high pressure aloft anchored along the west coast will begin to
slowly weaken on thanksgiving and Friday. That high pressure aloft
combined with weak offshore lower level will bring well above
average high temperatures with high temperatures in the deserts
around 15 degrees above average today with high temperatures for
inland coastal and western valley areas around 25 degrees above
average today. This will push high temperatures for some inland
coastal and western valley areas to around 95 and locally into the
upper 90s with high temperatures a few degrees cooler towards the
coast on thanksgiving. Slow cooling will begin to spread inland on
Friday.

Long term (Saturday through Tuesday)
High pressure aloft will continue to weaken during the weekend
with onshore lower level flow strengthening for Sunday and Monday.

This will bring greater cooling for Sunday and Monday with
stronger and gusty southwest to west winds for the mountains and
deserts.

As the low pressure system continues to move inland... High
pressure aloft will strengthen along the west coast and surface
high pressure over the great basin will strengthen. Warming
combined with a very dry air mass will bring much lower inland
humidities. The surface high pressure over the great basin could
bring more widespread moderate strength santa ana winds with
critical fire weather conditions for Tuesday into Wednesday though
with weaker winds on Wednesday.

Aviation
221605z... Ne to E winds through mountain passes canyons and into the
coastal foothills slopes gusting to 25-35 kt will create areas of
moderate-strong uddfs llws over and W SW of the mountains through
2100 utc. However, llws not expected at any TAF sites. Winds will
weaken for late today through Thursday morning. Otherwise, few
clouds AOA 20000 ft msl and p6sm vis through Thursday morning.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Sunday.

Fire weather
Elevated fire weather concerns today and tomorrow in the mountains
and passes with northeast winds 15 to 25 mph gusting to 50 mph and
low inland humidities of 8 to 12 percent. Continued very warm on
thanksgiving day with lowest humidities of 10 to 15 percent with
winds from 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 40 mph.

Stronger santa ana winds and lower inland humidities are possible
for Tuesday of next week with more widespread critical fire weather
conditions possible.

Climate
Forecast high temperatures that could be near or exceed existing
record high temperatures through thanksgiving...

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.
