Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

a low pressure system off the west coast will move inland through
california through tonight... Then into arizona Saturday. It will
bring stronger onshore flow with areas of strong gusty southwest
to west winds in the mountains and deserts... And west to
northwest winds across the coastal waters for this afternoon into

with greater cooling for all areas tonight and Saturday.

Scattered mostly light showers will spread southward across the

to range from less than one tenth inch near the coast to one tenth

one half inch. Snow levels above 7000 feet will lower to around
5500 to 6000 feet during the late afternoon... To around 4500 feet

a few inches of snowfall... Mostly above 4500 feet.

Dry weather will follow for Sunday through Wednesday with slow

Another low pressure system could move quickly through california

gfs a little slower.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
