Synopsis
Conditions will be primarily warm and dry through early next
week, though there is a slight chance of light showers along the
central coast today. A weak cold front will push through the
region later in the week, bringing cooler temperatures, gusty
winds, and possible rain and mountain snow showers.

Short term (tdy-wed)
the latest satellite imagery showed a cold front sagging south
through central california with associated mid and high level
clouds dissipating. This is a sign that the front is weakening.

Scattered showers along and just ahead of the front were pushing
through the bay area with measurable rain nearing monterey. This
front will continue to weaken as it tries to push through san
louis obispo county late this morning into early in the afternoon.

There is a chance of very light showers during this time focused
across far northwest slo county and adjacent waters. Otherwise
mostly cloudy skies will prevail north of point conception today
with party cloudy to sunny skies to the south. Moderate offshore
flow focused to the south of point conception will bring breezy
winds to areas prone to north winds. A few degrees of warming is
expected today with highs for most coastal areas in the 60s to
low 70s.

A modest 1037 mb surface high pressure system is expected to build
in behind the departing cold front Tuesday into Wednesday. This
will bring an uptick in offshore flow by Tuesday late morning
continuing into Wednesday morning, supporting breezy offshore
winds. The increase in offshore winds and a ridge of high pressure
building in aloft will support 5 to 10 degrees of warming for
many areas, greatest for coastal areas south of point conception
Tuesday with continued warm conditions for most areas Wednesday.

Although a switch to onshore flow for the central coast may
support some cooling there Wednesday with patchy low clouds and
fog possibly returning during the late afternoon or evening
hours. Mid and high level clouds will likely be on the increase
from north to south late Wednesday. There is the slight chance of
light showers for the slo portion of the central coast late
Wednesday ahead of a cold front approaching from the northwest.

Long term (thu-sun)
above average model agreement continues into the long term
providing above average confidence in the forecast details.

However, model trends have backed off on the strength of a cold
front and associated precipitation for Thursday into Friday. The
cold front is currently expected to push through the region from
west to east Thursday with mainly light showers focused north of
point conception. Though there is a slight chance of light showers
working there way down to ventura county and the mountains of los
angeles county. Have cut rainfall amounts in half with this
forecast package. Most areas will likely see one tenth of an inch
or less (again focused to the north of point conception), except
the coastal range of slo county where up to around one quarter of
an inch is possible. Snow levels, initially high (above 7000
feet) could drop to as low as around 4000 feet behind the front.

However, with the lighter precipitation amounts currently
expected, light snow accumulations would likely be reserved to
the highest elevations. Lower heights thicknesses and cloud cover
will bring near to below normal temperatures (60s for coastal
areas and 50s for interior) to the region Thursday with limited
warming Friday.

Surface high pressure building into the great basin by Friday,
then shifting east to the central rockies over the weekend. This
may support advisory level north winds late Thursday into Friday
focused across the mountains and southern santa barbara county
with a weak to moderate santa ana possible for this upcoming
weekend. A moderate ridge of high pressure aloft (h5 around 580
dm) will likely build into the region by next weekend. This
combined with the offshore flow will bring considerable warming
and drying for this weekend with high temperatures possibly
breaking 80 across warmer valleys and interior coastal areas.

Aviation 22 1100z
at 0927z at klax, there was no marine layer, there was a sfc based
inversion with a top of 400 feet and a temperature of 14 degrees
c.

High confidence in cavu tafs. There is a 20 percent chc of some
sprinkles over slo county this morning.

Klax and kbur... High confidence in cavu taf.

Marine 22 300 am
across the southern outer waters zones (pzz673, pzz676) SCA conds
for seas are likely much of the time through Tue night due to a
combination of winds and seas.

Across the northern outer waters zone (pzz670) SCA conds are
likely again thru tonight due to seas. SCA seas are expected to
move into the nearshore waters north of point sal (pzz645) during
this time as well.

Across the sba channel and the southern inner waters, SCA conds
are not expected until thu.

Another long period swell is expected Thu into fri.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... High surf advisory in effect until 4 am pst Tuesday for zones
34-35. (see laxcfwlox).

Pz... Small craft advisory for hazardous seas in effect until 4 am
pst Tuesday for zones 645-670. (see laxmwwlox).

Small craft advisory in effect until 3 am pst Wednesday for

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.
