Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A warming trend is forecast this week as high pressure strengthens
over southern california. The marine layer will diminish and low
clouds will be less extensive. Inland temperatures will rise well
above average Tuesday through at least Thursday. It looks a
little cooler next weekend as high pressure weakens.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

our marine layer this morning topped out at about 5500 feet,
propped up by a weak coastal eddy and a low pressure trough over
the west. Despite the odds stacked against them, the low clouds
managed to clear out of many areas this afternoon, but not so much
in orange county (apologies to sun-loving orange countians). That
trough helped spin up the eddy, but also brought cooler air into
the entire region, so inland high temperatures today were well
below average. In fact, palomar mountain and borrego springs broke
their low MAX temp records for this date. The cooler air aloft
weakened our marine inversion, which allowed the cool, moist
marine air to mix with the warmer, drier air above it and
evaporate more clouds. There were also some strong wind gusts over
50 mph this evening in isolated parts of the mountains and
deserts, and stirred up some dust in imperial county. Over the
next few days, that low pressure trough will weaken and lift north
while a high pressure ridge strengthens and bulges north into our
region. That will tamp down the marine layer quite a lot and also
cook the air mass to bring warmer weather inland this week. The
overhead ridge is strongest Tuesday through at least Thursday, so
those days will be hottest inland and well above average. Coastal
temps will be much closer to seasonal and there is even some
reassurance provided by some guidance suggesting a coastal eddy
Wednesday. The shallower marine layer will mean coastal clouds
will stay, well, coastal, each night and morning. And more
sunshine in all areas. However, if the marine inversion becomes
really strong, possibly on Wednesday and Thursday, we could get
clouds sticking to beaches all day. As next weekend approaches,
models show some breakdown of the ridge under a trough passing to
the north. This little dent in the ridge looks sufficient to bring
temperatures back down and coastal clouds back up, closer to
seasonal levels.

Aviation
180400z... Coast valleys coastal mountain slopes... Bkn-ovc cloud
layer with bases 2000-3000 ft msl and tops to 4000 ft msl will
persist overnight for the coastal terminals with coastal mountain
slopes becoming obscured later in the period. For the inland empire
terminals, low clouds will fill in again through about 07z.

Cloud cover should burn off more quickly Monday with most terminals
becoming sct 17-18z.

Desert mountain slopes deserts... The main concern will be strong
wind gusts late this evening. North to northwest winds with surface
gusts up to 30-40 kt are expected through about 08z. Areas of mod
uddfs and llws possible over and NE E of the mountains through late
this evening along with areas of blowing dust sand.

Marine
A period of stronger winds (around 20 knots) and higher seas are expected
Monday afternoon and evening. Otherwise, no hazardous marine weather
is expected through Friday.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation is not requested. However weather spotters are
encouraged to report significant weather conditions.
