Synopsis Cool, unsettled, and breezy weather this weekend will
be replaced with warmer and drier weather for much of the region
with temperatures reaching near normals by the end of the week.
Moisture lingering in the southern great basin will help fuel
afternoon shower and thunderstorm chances while most of the mojave
will remain dry.
Discussion Through Saturday.
Upper-level low swinging through southern california will move
across the CWA tonight. A band of thicker mid and upper-level
clouds is exiting off to the east, with slightly more moisture
behind this feature. Winds should generally subside after sunset
as the boundary layer begins to decouple, but as cooler air
arrives aloft, don't expect instability to wane, in fact, it may
even increase for much of the region after sunset. Hard to rule
out a few shallow and or elevated showers or storms through about
midnight for areas north of las vegas.
Most of the region will dry out on Monday, with temperatures
remaining on the cooler side. Quite a bit of wrap-around moisture
will get left behind in the southern great basin, with pop-up
showers and thunderstorms expected each afternoon for the rest of
the week, with the mojave desert drying out and warming up to near
normal by the end of the week.
A strong ridge of high pressure begins building over the pacific|
and begins slowly moving east toward the west coast, helping to
bring an end to the persistent troughing of late. Currently little
if any evidence this will change in the extended, so warmer and
drier favored to continue. Summer may finally be arriving.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
