230 am pdt Wed mar 29 2017

Very strong and potentially damaging winds possible Thursday
afternoon through evening in the mountains and deserts...

Synopsis
Skies will be clear today with warmer weather all areas due to
passing high pressure. Highs will be mostly in the 80s in the
valleys and lower 90s in the lower deserts. A strong low pressure
system will develop over the great basin Thursday through Friday.

It will bring very strong mountain and desert winds and cooler
weather all areas. Warmer weather will return over the weekend
under weak high pressure, but low pressure will bring cooler
conditions again by early next week.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

a transitory upper ridge will bring a warmup today for most areas
with temperatures likely to trend about 10 degrees above normal
for most areas. It will also be mainly sunny today.

A deep low with good model consensus will develop on Thursday over
the great basin and create a very strong gradient over our
mountains and deserts. A strong jet rounding the low will bring
upper-level support for the potential for strong damaging winds
over the mountains and deserts. The peak of the wind event is
likely to be Thursday evening. Surfacing mountain waves over the
coachella valley will be a significant concern where the potential
for wind damage could occur, as well as in parts of the mojave
desert, with blowing sand and dust also a possible significant
impact in those areas. By this afternoon the forecast through
Friday morning will have better confidence with full resolution
short term models available to make a decision on issuing the high
wind warning, so for now we have opted to continue the high wind
watch in effect for most of the mountain and desert areas.

The wind will quickly switch to northerly late Thursday night, and
could bring another round of strong wind gusts through early
Friday morning.

High pressure will gradually build in for the weekend with
moderating temperatures and lighter winds. Another weak trough
slated for Monday and Tuesday next week will bring another
cooldown and another possible strong wind event. It is spring
afterall!

Aviation

Marine

expected late Thursday into Friday.

encouraged to report significant weather conditions.

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.
