SYNOPSIS. A low pressure system to the southwest of southern California will move slowly toward the northeast and move through southern California Friday night. Cooling west of the mountains will spread farther inland on Friday and Saturday. The marine layer will deepen into Saturday with coastal low clouds and fog spreading farther inland each night. There is a slight chance of light rain for Friday night into Saturday morning along and west of the mountains and there will be stronger and gusty southwest and west winds in the mountains and deserts for Friday and Saturday. High pressure to the east will bring a warming trend for Monday through Wednesday. The marine layer will become shallower and there could be some weak offshore flow for early next week.

DISCUSSION. FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE . SAN DIEGO . WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES .

SHORT TERM (Today through Saturday). A cutoff low pressure system is centered to the southwest of southern California early this morning with high pressure centered over northwest Mexico. A coastal eddy has developed. Low clouds have spread northward along the southern California coast overnight and extend inland in San Diego Diego County into the western valleys and are spreading into inland Orange County. The greatest cooling today will be for the coast and valleys with only slight cooling for the deserts.

That low pressure system to the southwest will move slowly toward the northeast, moving through southern California Friday night. The marine layer will continue to deepen into Saturday with night and morning coastal low clouds and fog spreading farther into the valleys tonight into Friday morning, and onto the coastal mountain slopes for Friday night into Saturday morning. There is a slight chance for light rain along and west of the mountains for Friday night into Saturday morning as the low pressure system moves inland.

Greater cooling will spread inland on Friday with continued cooling on Saturday. Saturday high temperatures will be around 5 degrees below average for lower elevations and 10 to 15 degrees below average for the inland valleys, mountains, and high desert areas. Onshore flow will strengthen with periods of stronger and gusty southwest to west winds in the mountains and deserts on Friday and Saturday. The strongest winds are expected for late Friday afternoon into Friday night with stronger gusts of 45 to 50 mph and strongest gusts in the windiest locations of 55 to 60 mph.

LONG TERM (Sunday through Wednesday). A trough of low pressure over the western states on Sunday will move east on Monday with high pressure over northern Mexico expanding into southern California through Wednesday. High temperatures on Sunday will be near to slightly warmer than Saturday with slow warming on Monday. There will be greater warming on Tuesday and Wednesday with Wednesday high temperatures around 5 degrees above average for the deserts and 10 to 15 degrees above average for the coast and valleys.

Areas of low clouds and fog will extend onto the lower coastal mountain slopes for early Sunday. For Monday through Wednesday, the marine layer will become shallower. There may be some patchy low clouds and fog near the coast early Monday with little or no coastal low clouds for midweek. There could also be some weak offshore flow at times early next week with locally gusty northeast winds near the coastal slopes of the mountains and below passes and canyons at times.

AVIATION. 040915Z . Low clouds filling coastal areas this morning. Bases 700- 1000 feet MSL with tops to 1400 feet. Local vis 0-5SM where cloud intersects terrain. Scatter out 16-18Z, but only partial or brief clearing for some of the coast. Low clouds to move ashore and inland after 00Z, spreading into valleys overnight. Bases/tops 1000-1500 feet MSL.

MARINE. No marine weather hazards are expected through Saturday morning. Winds increase later Saturday and especially Sunday, generating hazardous boating conditions.

BEACHES. Increasing swell with a long period will produce higher surf and a high rip current risk Friday through Sunday.

SKYWARN. Skywarn activation is not requested. However weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather conditions.

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Excessive Heat Warning until 7 PM PDT this evening for Coachella Valley-San Diego County Deserts.

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.
