Default rafter span table for Southern Cal--high desert

I am in the high desert part of southern Cal.

Is there a website that lists the max span for rafters listed for 2x6 and 2x8 etc for my area.

What is the general grade for lumber (select, 1 or 2 etc) at home centers like Lowes and Home Depot?

Thanks in advance

The grade of lumber at the stores have the grade right on them.
For your rafters go talk to the local building inspecters
