A weak trough of low pressure will bring a few degrees of cooling 
today as it drifts across Baja California Mexico...but it will still be 
quite warm inland. A shallow marine layer will bring low clouds 
and areas of fog back to the coast this morning and again Monday 
morning. Mild and dry next week with gusty westerly winds in the 
mountains and deserts at times each day as storms pass by to the 


Discussion...for extreme southwestern California including Orange... 
San Diego...western Riverside and southwestern San Bernardino 

Drier low level air near the coast and a band of high clouds is 
limiting coastal fog and low clouds. However patchy dense fog 
will be likely more towards daybreak along the coastal strip and a 
few miles inland but should quickly burn off just after sunrise. 
Coastal onshore gradients remain moderate with very little change 
observed over the previous 24 hours. 

A weak upper level trough will pass through today and this 
evening. A closed upper low about 700 miles SW of San Diego will 
continue to drift southeast and pass over the southern Baja California peninsula 
Monday night as it weakens into an open trough. In the wake of the 
upper trough...a brief upper level ridge will pass by on Tuesday 
bringing a little warmer temperatures to our region. 

On Wednesday the synoptic pattern will transition to a fairly 
fast zonal flow with embedded storms passing by to our north. Two 
stronger storms will eject from the Gulf of Alaska but will likely 
remain well north of our region middle and late week. However...this 
pattern will bring some batches of high clouds to our region as 
well as persistent fresh onshore flow across much of Southern 
California. The two stronger storms passing by to the north will 
bring a tightening pressure gradient around Wednesday and 
Saturday...which will likely cause gusty winds...especially 
through the west to east passes and into the deserts. 
Otherwise...little change in the pattern is expected through the 
new week for our region with a continued dry forecast. 



291000z...coastal areas...low clouds are fog with bases 400 feet and 
tops 700 feet expected to spread 5 to 10 miles inland over coastal 
areas from 29/1100z-1530z. Dense fog with less than 1/4 sm visible may 
develop where clouds intersect the terrain on the lower coastal 
mesas. The fog should erode to the coast between 29/1500z-1600z. Sky clear 
conds will persist through middle day today with the low clouds 
returning after 30/0300z. 

Valleys/mountains/deserts...scattered clouds at or above 15000 feet with 
unrestricted visible through tonight. 



230 am...patchy dense fog possible again tonight through Sunday 
morning...otherwise no hazardous marine weather is expected through 



230 am...a south swell with a long period will create strong rip and 
longshore currents through this well as elevated surf 
along south-facing beaches. For details see the beach hazards 


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


Sgx watches/warnings/advisories... 
California...beach hazards statement through this afternoon for Orange County 
coastal areas-San Diego County coastal areas.
