130 am pdt Sat mar 23 2019

Synopsis
Today will be a cool day with scattered low clouds west of the
mountains, and high clouds over the mountains and deserts. A large
west swell will generate high surf this weekend. Warmer weather is
forecast Sunday and Monday under weak high pressure aloft. The high
drifts east Tuesday followed by a trough of low pressure that will
bring cool, breezy weather Wednesday and Thursday along with a
chance for showers.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
counties...

low clouds were having a hard time forming early this morning,
perhaps due to the large swath of high clouds moving in from the
west that may be disrupting inversion formation. A band of light
rain north of pt conception was moving east across central ca,
showing very little southward progression this morning. It is
looking less likely that we will see any precip this afternoon or
evening with the best chances in the san bernardino mountains.

Otherwise, today will be a cooler-than-average day west of the
mountains with a mix of clouds and sun. Highs in the lower deserts
will be about average for mid march. The trough slides by to the
east tonight, and a transient ridge of high pressure will bring
warmer days Sunday and Monday.

We've seen a northerly shift in the active eastern pacific storm
track of late with the jet stream more focused on northern and
central ca, and very little jet energy making into socal. That will
be the case next week when another pacific shortwave makes landfall
over central california, leaving southern ca on its southern
periphery. This wave will be a little stronger, and both the GFS and
ecmwf show better PVA and a deeper moisture profile. The precip
chances look best from Wednesday into Thursday.

The long range outlook for next weekend is filled with run-to-run
model inconsistencies. At times they show a stronger pacific wave
bringing showers, and at other times they show weak ridging over the
southwest. Although the rainy season isn't over yet, the
climatological trends favor a northerly shift in the jet, and a less
aggressive pattern here in socal with weaker systems and lighter
rainfall.

Aviation
230800z... Coasts valleys... Patchy bkn-ovc stratus will with bases
1500-2500 ft msl and tops to 3500 ft msl will continue through 17z
with mostly unrestricted vis. After 17z, generally sct conditions
will prevail with bases around 3000 ft msl as well as high clouds
at above 20000 ft msl. Areas of bkn-ovc clouds will likely redevelop
between 02z and 06z tonight with bases 1500-2500 ft msl again.

Mountains deserts... .Isolated -shra are possible this afternoon and
evening in the mountains. Otherwise, areas of bkn-ovc stratus will
continue over the coastal mountain slopes with local terrain
obscurations through 17z becoming sct-bkn after 17z with tops to
5000 ft msl. Otherwise, sct-bkn clouds will occur at above 15000 ft
msl through tonight. Local west winds 15-25 knots with gusts to 35
knots will occur on the desert mountain slopes this afternoon and
tonight.

Marine
A large west-northwest swell with a 15-17 second period could bring
combined seas to 9 ft in the outer waters on Sunday. Otherwise, no
hazardous marine weather is expected through Wednesday.

Beaches
A west-northwest swell of 7-9 ft from 290 degrees with a 15-17
second period will likely generate high surf starting late this
afternoon and peaking Sunday with sets to 9 ft possible, mainly in
san diego county. A high surf advisory has been issued for orange
and san diego counties from 2 pm Saturday through 9 pm Sunday.

Skywarn activation will not be needed this weekend.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
