Synopsis
A slow pattern shift is still on track for weak onshore flow
spreading over the area with general cooling into the weekend.

Patchy night and morning low clouds and fog will develop nights
and mornings and push inland a bit more each night into the
weekend. Additional cooling associated with a weak disturbance is
expected by Tuesday but only some cloudiness and cooling is
expected. Later in the week a frontal system should pass by to our
north, and there is a chance of rain during the latter half of
next week, but confidence in the frontal system affecting areas
this far south is rather low.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

weak onshore flow and the patchy low clouds seen this morning will
be enhanced overnight tonight and through Sunday morning with the
return of the marine layer. Low humidity inland areas with weak
winds the rest of today. Increasing onshore flow will spread
cooling into the valleys with a return of patchy low clouds and
fog near the coast late tonight into Saturday morning. Weak high
pressure aloft across california will bring a slight decrease in
marine layer depth for Sunday and Monday with slightly warmer high
temperatures for coastal and valley areas.

For Tuesday, a weakening low pressure system will move inland
through northern baja and southern california with reasonable agreement
among the global models with the timing, track, and intensity of
this system. While this system is expected to bring stronger
onshore flow and some cooling, the chances for any precipitation
of significance to occur still looks to be quite low.

For the middle of next week, computer models each show vastly
different solutions on the timing, track, and intensity of pacific
weather systems headed mainly to our north. Temperatures around
average and rather low chances of rain will be pretty much the
rule until the models lock in a bit better on a solution.

Aviation
162100z... Sct-bkn high clouds with unrestricted vis through this
afternoon. Patchy stratus, with bases around 800 ft msl and tops
near 1500 ft msl, will develop tonight along the coast and push
inland by 05z Saturday morning, especially in areas of orange county
and northern san diego county. Vis of 2-4 sm br is expected with
clouds near higher terrain. Sct-bkn clouds will begin to further
clear out after 18z Saturday with unrestricted vis.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Tuesday.

Fire weather...

weak onshore flow will spread coastal cooling into the valleys
but inland areas will remain quite dry, but with weak winds. For
the weekend through much of next week, onshore flow will prevail
which will spread higher coastal humidity inland.

Skywarn...

skywarn activation is not requested. However weather spotters are
encouraged to report significant weather conditions.

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.

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.
