morning... Onshore flow this afternoon and evening... And a little
stronger offshore flow for Sunday morning with gusty northeast
winds to around 35 mph near the coastal foothills and below passes
and canyons. A cold low pressure system from the north will bring
showers with lower snow levels for Monday night into Tuesday
evening along with a slight chance for thunderstorms on Tuesday.

Drier and a little warmer for Wednesday... Then cool and breezy
with additional chances for showers for Thursday and Friday.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

for this weekend... Weak high pressure aloft will bring a daytime
warming trend with high temperatures warming to near average on
Sunday. The coldest temperatures for the weekend are expected
early this morning with overnight low temperatures slowly
moderating for tonight and Sunday night. Some low temperature
records could fall this morning... Mainly in portions of the inland
valleys.

Weak offshore flow this morning will bring some locally gusty
northeast winds below passes and canyons. The flow will go back
onshore for this afternoon and evening... Then a little more
strongly offshore for Sunday morning with areas of northeast winds
with gusts to 35 mph near the coastal foothills and below passes
and canyons. Dry weather will continue into Monday. Onshore flow
will strengthen on Monday with cooling and with stronger and gusty
southwest to west winds in the mountains and deserts during the
afternoon and evening.

A cold low pressure system from the north will bring showers for
Monday night into Tuesday evening along with a slight chance for
thunderstorms on Tuesday. Rainfall will be somewhat variable given
the showery nature of the precipitation... But general rainfall
amounts are expected to range from one to two tenths of an inch
near the coast to one quarter to one half inch in the mountains
with locally greater amounts. Snow levels will lower to 2500 to
3000 feet early Tuesday... Then fluctuate around 3500 feet for
Tuesday afternoon and evening. Snow levels could be low enough
late Monday night into Tuesday morning with snowfall in the upper
deserts from scattered snow showers. A few inches of snowfall is
possible in the mountains of san bernardino and riverside counties
with slightly greater totals possible in the san diego county
mountains.

For the middle to latter part of next week... A cold low pressure
system will gradually amplify across the eastern pacific and
western states... Then begin to move around next weekend with the
gfs on the faster end of the timing with the ECMWF and canadian
models on the slower end with the timing.

Wednesday is expected to be drier and a little warmer. Then
cooler and breezy with increasing shower chances for Thursday and
Friday with showers possibly continuing into portions of next
weekend.

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.
