Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 210 PM PDT Fri Sep 24 2021

SYNOPSIS. An area of low pressure will stick around our area through the weekend. This will lead to cloudier conditions with cooler weather along with the chance for showers and thunderstorms area wide. As the system departs, a large trough of low pressure will enter the Pacific Northwest and slowly nudge its way into California. This will bring greater onshore flow and more cooler weather for the region through the middle of next week.

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

SHORT TERM. (Today through Sunday) . An upper level area of low pressure is currently circulating over Northern Baja California. This has been associated with moist east and north flow, where thunderstorms have developed this morning and continue currently over much of the region. The atmosphere will be unstable enough today into early for support of isolated showers and thunderstorms in the western valleys and the coastal areas as well. Storms may produce areas of heavy rain that may lead to flash flooding for the Riverside and San Diego County mountains/deserts.

Storm chances will decrease a bit for Saturday as the low shifts slightly south, where storms will mainly be confined to the mountains and deserts per latest WRF/HRRR guidance. As the low pressure system slowly pushes east on Sunday, the atmosphere will loose a bit of instability and lift, so storms have a lesser chance popping up across the mountains and lower deserts. Temperatures will also continue to decrease through the weekend where we will see most areas around 5 degrees below average by Sunday.

LONG TERM. (Monday Onward) . After the low pressure system departs, a trough will begin to enter the Pacific Northwest by Monday. As the system heads south and east, it will continue to bring cooler air and breezy conditions to the mountains and deserts by Tuesday and Wednesday. Pressure gradients tighten on Tuesday, where windy conditions will be most pronounced across the mountains and deserts. Some areas may see west winds gust over 50 MPH through favored passes and canyons. Wednesday looks to be the coolest day overall with high temperatures 5-15 below average expected. Differences in model agreement start to emerge as we get toward the end of the week, but for now, looks to stay dry with temperatures near average.

AVIATION. 242043Z . Coast and offshore . OVC008-012 with tops near 1500 FT MSL developing over the coastal water . and after 25/03z this evening moving inland. SCT-BKN100 with LCL VIS 5SM in ISOLD SHRA/-TSRA and CB bases near 6000 feet MSL will taper off slowly after 25/02z this evening.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . SCT-BKN100 with SCT SHRA/TSRA forming over the mountains, some of which will drift west over the valleys with bases 060-100 and tops to FL400. The stronger thunderstorms will briefly lower cloud bases to BKN-SCT at around 6000 feet MSL in +RW that will severely restrict visibility, along with gusty and erratic winds. Activity decreasing slowly after about 25/03z this evening.

BEACHES. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible at the beaches through early evening today, especially in San Diego County.

MARINE. There is a high probability of no significant weather over the coastal waters through Monday. However, a small chance does exist for a few showers and thunderstorms, in association with a developing upper-level low pressure system off the Baja Ca Coast from late Friday through Sunday morning.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Flash Flood Watch until 7 PM PDT this evening for Coachella Valley-Riverside County Mountains-San Diego County Deserts- San Diego County Mountains.

Beach Hazards Statement until 7 PM PDT this evening for Orange County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Coastal Areas.

PZ . NONE.
