    14. The Diablo Canyon Weather Forecast ============= DCPP Weather Forecast for Saturday 05/04/02 =================== SWELL: A 3 to 5 feet combined northwesterly sea/swell with a 5 to 9 second period will continue through tomorrow. Fresh to strong northwesterly winds will generate a 5 to 7 foot combined northwesterly sea/swell with a 7 to 11 second period on Monday and Tuesday. Combined with this northwesterly sea/swell will be a 1 to 2 foot southern hemisphere swell with a 13 to 17 second period through Sunday. Southern hemisphere swell will increase to 2 to 4 with a 14 to 18 second period on Monday and Tuesday. ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: Low clouds and fog will develop during the night and morning hours along coastline. Otherwise, mostly fair weather will continue through Friday.

    15. WINDS: Moderate to fresh northwesterly winds will continue through Sunday. Fresh to strong northwesterly winds will develop on Monday and Tuesday. Northwesterly winds will decrease on Wednesday and Thursday. Today's winds: Max sustained wind: NW 23.3 mph (1800) Max peak winds: NW 24.3 mph (1800) Yesterday's Winds Max sustained wind: NW 26.8 mph (1600) Max peak winds: NW 34.7 mph (1600)

DIABLO CANYON AIR TEMPERATURES: Yesterday's Today's Tomorrow's Min Max Min Max Min Max 48.9 F 55.6 F 48.8 F 54.4 F 48.0 F 55.0 F SEAWATER TEMPERATURES: Intake seawater temperatures will range between 49 to 51 degrees through Sunday, decreasing to 48 to 50 degrees on Monday through Wednesday. OCEAN CURRENTS: A southerly flowing (offshore) current will continue through Wednesday. SEAWATER VISIBILITY: Seawater visibility was 32 feet (top to bottom) at the Diablo Canyon Intake.
