Synopsis
High pressure aloft will weaken gradually through the upcoming
weekend, allowing the marine layer to build inland, with morning
low clouds and fog spreading farther into the valleys. It will
be slightly cooler each day through Sunday, as the deserts remain
hot. For Monday, a low pressure system will move inland, bringing
greater cooling, stronger and gusty west winds over the mountains
and deserts, and a chance for showers. Even isolated thunderstorms
are a possibility.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

at 1 pm pdt... Marine clouds had retreated back offshore, except for
a few spots along the immediate coast. The sfc pressure gradients
were still quite weak and winds light most areas. Most reporting
sites had temperatures with in 3f of where they were yesterday at
the same time. A weak shortwave trough skimming the northern
portions of the CWA is firing up some cumulus over the san
bernardino mts. At this time, the short-range, hires models show no
precip developing so pops remain below threshold.

The broad upper-level ridge over the SW will slowly weaken through
the upcoming weekend, allowing the onshore flow to increase and the
marine layer to build farther inland. Little change is expected
tonight, but greater coverage into the valleys is likely by Sunday.

It will stay quite warm far inland and in the deserts until then,
but for the western valleys incremental cooling is expected each day
as the sea breeze strengthens a bit more.

For Monday and Tuesday, expect more noticeable cooling as onshore
flow increases and daytime highs remain well below normal. This will
be in response to low pressure moving inland across socal. The
gfs ECMWF operational runs still show significant timing
differences, but the track and intensity of the system are very
close. This lowers confidence in any precip timing, which impacts
pops, which are spread out between Mon tue. Also, the pattern
suggests a threat of thunderstorms as we are placed in the ne
quadrant of the incoming system where lift should be maximized.

As the storm system moves east, models show another broad trough
building south over the west, which should maintain onshore flow,
the marine layer, and near to below average temperatures.

Aviation

17-19z with patchy low clouds lingering at some of the beaches in
the afternoon.

san jacinto mountains through 03z. After 03z... Clear with
unrestricted vis tonight and Friday.
