Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 200 PM PDT Mon Oct 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. Widespread rain will continue spreading southeastward across the area this afternoon with precipitation ending from the northwest in the evening. Stronger and gusty south winds will become westerly in the afternoon, then diminish from north to south tonight. Dry weather will prevail Tuesday through the weekend, with a warming trend Tuesday through Thursday. Weak northeasterly winds will occur Wednesday through Thursday. Onshore flow will return next weekend, spreading cooling inland and bringing a return of night and morning coastal low clouds and fog.

DISCUSSION. FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE . SAN DIEGO . WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES .

Atmospheric river is focused on LA County now, but rain was becoming widespread in Orange County and northern parts of the Inland Empire and surrounding mountains. Strong winds were occurring in the mountains and deserts with numerous gusts over 45 MPH, especially along and north of I-10.

The timing of the AR and related precip is generally through 5-7 PM in Orange/San Bernardino County and between 3-7 PM in San Diego/Riverside County, with most lingering precip ending by 9-10 PM in southern San Diego County. HRRR and local WRF have been consistently showing maximum hourly precip rates of around 0.5" in the El Dorado/Apple burn scars and 0.4" in the Bond burn scar (each about 0.1" below debris flow thresholds), with local rates of 0.8- 0.9" per hour in the strongest orographic areas in SW San Bernardino County. ENS QPF has been consistent from the forecast Sunday, with a very slight downward trend. SAN has mean ENS ensemble member amounts around 0.15-0.2" though HRRR shows a little more, so likely amounts around there should be around 0.25" total. SNA is approximately double that. Saturation/near-saturation will extend to around 10000 feet MSL in San Diego County and 15000 feet MSL in San Bernardino County, so rainfall will easily occur in the high deserts, up to around 0.25" total, but rainfall will be sparse in the lower deserts, generally 0.10" or less even though some moisture is evident in a shallow low layer coming up from the southeast. Local mountain rainfall will total over 2" in the San Bernardino Mountains on the upper south slopes. Widespread flooding is not expected, but local roadway flooding will be possible in low-lying areas. Little or no snow fall will occur in the mountains as the snow level will not fall below 10000 feet MSL until the moisture exits.

Fair weather will prevail starting late tonight as a broad area of zonal high pressure over the east Pacific gradually shifts east into the western US. Tuesday will be 5-10 deg F below normal, but temperatures will recover to near normal Wednesday and 5-10 deg F above normal Thursday, with some lower 90s possible in warmest valleys based on some of the ENS contributors to MOS. The lower deserts will likely be above 90 then as well. The high will weaken over the weekend as some sort of troughing and/or upper low moves by to the north, though models are inconsistent with details. Most likely that will result in a cooling trend then and early next week, with a return of marine layer stratus near the coast.

AVIATION. 252030Z . Coasts/Valleys/Mountains . Low clouds with bases 1500-2500 FT MSL. SHRA is occurring across Orange/San Bernardino Counties and will spread southeastward into Riverside/San Diego Counties through 23z Mon. Vis will be reduced to 2-4 SM and cigs may become locally under 1000 FT MSL during the heaviest RA. RA will diminish after 02z Tue across northern areas, and after 04z Tue across southern/eastern areas. Overnight, stratus covering all areas with bases 2000-3000 FT MSL.

Breezy S-SW winds, strongest across mtn tops and lee of ridges. Winds 15-25 kts with gusts 30-40 kt, isolated 50 kt gusts in favored locations. Winds turning from the S to the NW with frontal passage, impacting coastal TAF sites 23z Mon-03z Tue. Winds will slowly diminish after 09z Tue.

Deserts . SCT-BKN with bases 5000-8000 FT MSL with -SHRA 23z Mon-03z Tue. Gusty NW winds developing after 20z Mon with peak gusts 30-40 kts. STG up/downdrafts along desert slopes.

MARINE. A cold front will bring breezy southwest winds today, with a shift to the northwest as a front moves through coastal waters this afternoon and early evening. Winds and seas will present hazardous conditions for small craft. Northwest winds of 10 to 20 kt with gusts 25 to 30 kt and seas 6 to 11 ft are expected. In addition, scattered rain showers will accompany this noticeable wind shift, generally from 2 pm through 7 pm. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect through early Tuesday morning. Conditions will gradually improve late tonight and Tuesday.

BEACHES. A long period west swell and a long period south swell will combine to produce high surf and dangerous swimming conditions today through early Wednesday. Large breaking waves of 5 to 8 feet, with local sets to 10 feet in southern San Diego County. A High Surf Advisory is in effect through early Wednesday morning.

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