As I look into my crystal ball for the weekend, I can ditto the weekend weather report from last weekend. Looks like we will have rain tonight and into most of Saturday and then partial clearing — déjà vu. The Pacific swells will build up to 6 feet and taper off to 5 feet by Monday, and the swells off Point Conception to our north are expected to reach more than 20 feet with wind waves Saturday. You need to be careful if you punch outside the harbor’s line of demarcation into the ocean this weekend, especially with winds steepening the swells’ faces to where your boat can fall off the top of the swell into the trough.

Friends and family of the late surfer Gregory Gladstone gathered in his memory during stormy weather at Newport Pier on Saturday. Gladstone died after lifeguards found him unresponsive and floating in big waves off 14th Street on Jan. 23. Fellow surfers called for help after finding his surfboard floating in the water. Authorities are awaiting a toxicology report before making a final determination on what caused Gladstone’s death. A Newport Beach resident since the early 1990s, Gladstone founded the company Gladstone Construction.

For those of you who worked all week hoping for a sun-filled weekend, think again. Cloudy and rainy weather in the area are expected to last the weekend, and sunny skies aren’t forecast until Monday, according to the National Weather Service. On Friday, rain fell lightly, but no major flooding or car accidents were reported as of 2 p.m. The rain is expected to be heaviest early Saturday, possibly causing debris flows and a potential for flooding in washes, low-lying areas, rivers and streams, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast for Saturday calls for only a 20% chance of rain, and Sunday is supposed to be mostly sunny, according to the National Weather Service. But next week is expected to be a smaller scale repeat of this week, with showers rolling in again, although with not as much strength. Over the past few days, strong surf and equally powerful swells combined to erode part of the Balboa Peninsula, prompting lifeguards to move dozens of lifeguard towers back by 20 feet, said Jon Mitchell, a lifeguard captain.

Despite what was billed as potentially the worst storm yet, Newport-Mesa was mostly unscathed Wednesday by the rain and wind that had caused so many problems the previous two days. California Highway Patrol officials said there were still more crashes — mostly minor spin-outs — on county freeways than normal, but there were few major accidents and none in Costa Mesa or Newport Beach. Police and fire officials in both cities said Wednesday was uneventful compared with earlier in the week.

I am most certainly my father’s daughter. I share his sense of humor and his cooking skills, not to mention he gave me a set of gorgeously long eyelashes. So it’s no surprise that I pulled a Mary Ann while going to Best Buy to return the first season of “The Big Bang Theory” on Wednesday. What’s a Mary Ann? Well, Dad was listening to his favorite radio deejay on his way to work. It had rained a lot the night before, and the deejay was warning people that the rain had frozen, so it was best to be Ginger, and maybe even go so far as to be Mary Ann. Dad chuckled at this nice little joke as he got out of his truck and promptly landed on his backside.
