Synopsis
Surface high pressure over the central rockies will continue to
supply a cool and dry air mass to the region with another round of
frost and freeze conditions for cooler interior areas through
Sunday morning. A ridge of high pressure building into the region
early next week will bring significant warming with widespread
record heat possible mid-week, including thanksgiving day.

Short term (tdy-tue)
the main story of the the weather is the heat... But oddly have to
start out talking about freezing weather. Clear skies and cool
airmass have allowed for a nice temp drop this morning and the
interior vlys... Desert... And the ojai and santa ynez valleys will
all dawn with temps below or at freezing.

A ridge will build in today and hgts will rise to 582 dm these
hgts... Sunshine and the offshore flow will all combine to produce
max temps 4 to 8 degrees above normal. The offshore flow may
produce a few sub advisory gusts between 15 and 25 mph this
morning as well.

The ridge grows on Monday. Flow is still offshore but it is about
a mb weaker in both directions. There are a grip of clouds
currently at 140w and while most of them will be deflected to the
north of the area by the ridge enough mid and high levels clouds
will slip through to create partly cloudy skies, sba and ESP slo
counties may have an hour or two of mostly cloudy skies. MAX temps
will jump a few more degrees. The biggest jumps in MAX temps will
be across the interior where the cool air from Saturday's
offshore push will modify and the central coast where there will
be better easterly flow.

On Tuesday the ridge spikes up and hgts soar to 591 dm or 13 dm
above normal. Offshore flow will continue and MAX temps will soar
5 to 10 degrees. Almost all of the coasts and the vlys will have
max temps in the 80s or 10 to 20 degrees above normal.

Long term (wed-sat)
the ridge grows to 594 dm and offshore flow increases. There will
be some north winds in places like the i-5 corridor. Under sunny
skies MAX temps will rise several more degrees and MAX temps will
be in the 80s and lower 90s across all of the coasts and vlys
except maybe for the central coast north of the city of slo.

Hgts fall a few dm on thanksgiving as the ridge tilts to the east.

Offshore flow weakens a touch also. MAX temps should fall a degree
or two. The all time record MAX temp for thanksgiving is 90 and
right now it looks like that record will stand but its still not
out of the question. Skies will be clear and there will not be
much of any wind.

The ridge flattens out as a large upper low moves out of the gulf
of alaska. Gradients will reverse to onshore and there will be
cooling both Friday and Saturday. MAX temps... However... Will still
be a few degrees above normal.

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.
