Synopsis
Upper level high pressure over baja california will continue to
ridge northward throughout the period. Temperatures will reach
record highs in many areas by Wednesday.

Short term (tdy-tue)
a weak upper level ridge of high pressure is building across
southwest california. This in combination with offshore flow
near the surface brought a warming and drying trend today.

Temperatures have climbed well into the 70s to around 80 degrees
today across coastal valley areas. Wind advisories have been
cancelled as winds remained below advisory thresholds today.

Meanwhile, some cold air advection across interior sections
combined with the dry air mass and light winds tonight will
result in even colder overnight temperatures tonight across
interior valleys. The coldest temperatures later tonight
are expected to be across the antelope valley, where a hard
freeze warning has been issued for temperatures falling as
low as the mid 20s. The influx of colder air from the northeast
combined with dewpoints falling into the teens and light
winds causing this freeze event in the antelope valley.

Have also issued a freeze warning for late tonight across
interior valleys of slo county, and a frost advisory for the
cuyama valley where temperatures will be near or slightly
below 32 degrees.

Mostly sunny forecast today, then periodic mid and high
level clouds will stream across the area Sunday into
Monday, thickest for areas north of point conception Sunday
night into Monday. Little changes in MAX temperatures on Sunday,
then warming trend becomes more pronounced Monday into Tuesday
as upper level ridge of high pressure strengthens over area
and low level flow remains weakly offshore. By Tuesday, will
likely see temperatures soaring well into the 80s with warmest
valley areas climbing to around 90 degrees. Also will see some
breezy north- northeast winds Sunday night and Monday night across
the santa ynez mountains and i-5 corridor. A prolonged period
of elevated fire danger will be in effect this week due to the
very warm and dry conditions coupled with extremely dry fuels.

Long term (wed-sat)
Wednesday and thanksgiving day expected to be the warmest days of
the week, as the upper level ridge of high pressure continues to
strengthen, with heights peaking at 592 dm. During this time,
temperatures could reach record levels, with highs in the lower
to mid 90s across many valley areas, and possibly inland portions
of the coastal plain. The unseasonably hot and dry conditions
combined with breezy offshore conditions will continue to bring
elevated fire weather concerns during the extended period. The
upper level ridge flattens out Friday and this will bring some
cooling to all areas but especially the coast. Additional cooling
and increasing high clouds expected by next Saturday as a weather
system approaches the california coast.

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.
