area forecast discussion
national weather service san diego ca
847 am pdt Sat aug 18 2018

Synopsis
High pressure will strengthen over the area today. There is still
enough moisture present for the possibility of a few showers to
develop over the mountains this afternoon. Moisture will decrease
further Sunday through Monday before monsoonal moisture returns
during the middle part of next week, rekindling the chance for
mountain and desert thunderstorms.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

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

satellite imagery this morning had a continuous marine stratus layer
covering all coastal areas. The layer extended up to 20 miles inland
across san diego county. Elsewhere across socal, the skies were
clear. The 00z miramar sounding showed a sharp shift in winds below
8k ft from east to nw. Some drying accompanied the shift, but pw was
still 1.75 inch. There was a 5c inversion based near 2k ft msl. The
sounding had stabilized considerably from yesterday. Except for the
desert passes where westerly winds were gusting to around 25 mph,
winds were light.

Given the high pw values still present, a small chance of showers
seems warranted, but they will have to overcome continued drying and
stabilizing of the environment. No forecast changes.

From previous discussion...

water vapor imagery shows a shortwave departing through the
intermountain west with upper level ridging building in overhead
socal.

Hi-res models are dry today with the WRF showing no cell
development anywhere today. Hrrr shows a small light cells over
the riverside mountains. Moisture levels are still sufficient
under the upper ridge. In fact, satellite-derived precipitable
water shows values ranging from 1.6 inches near the border to
1.2-1.4 inches across the mountains, highest south. Some
instability develops along the mountain crests this afternoon
with MUCAPE values of 500+ j kg. These parameters suggest some
cumulus will develop over the mountains this afternoon with even
the potential of isolated showers. However, the suppressing ridge
should inhibit thunderstorm development. No flash flooding is
expected.

Tranquil days are expected Monday-Tuesday. Kept the forecast dry,
but there still could be just enough moisture present for cumulus
if not a few showers developing in the mountains. We can see the
latest hi-res runs and see how activity fares today to adjust the
forecast as needed. Either way, no significant impacts are
expected with no flash flooding anticipated through Monday.

Models show monsoonal moisture increasing Tuesday-Thursday, as the
upper high shifts east. This will bring a return to afternoon
mountain and desert thunderstorm activity then. How active it gets
though is uncertain and will assess in the days ahead.

Nighttime and morning low cloudiness will dominate at the coast
each day with sunshine each afternoon. It will continue humid as
well. Temps will continue to run above average through next week,
but not to excessive levels.

Aviation
181530z... Coasts valleys... Low clouds with bases 1200-1500 feet msl
and tops to 2200 feet will scatter out by 18z. Spots along immediate
coast may not clear fully or for very long. Clouds will redevelop
and spread inland after 01z with bases 1000-1400 feet msl and spread
not as far inland overnight. Local vis restrictions along inland
edge of cloud deck. Scatter out Sunday by 17z.

Mountains deserts... Cumulus developing over the mountains this
afternoon with bases near 10000 feet msl. There is a slight chance
of showers over mountain crests. Otherwise mostly clear with
unrestricted vis through Sunday morning.

Marine
No hazardous marine weather is expected through Wednesday.

Beaches
Beach hazard statement will continue through this evening for
elevated surf and strong rip currents. A 3-4 ft 15-16 second period
swell from 180 degrees will bring surf of 3-6 ft, with isolated sets
to 9 ft, mainly along the south facing beaches of northern orange
county, and strong rip currents. Surf will lower tonight through
Sunday.

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

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
