Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 1000 AM PDT Mon Oct 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. It will be cooler with widespread rain 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 .

Light rain was beginning to form at mid-morning in parts of Orange and San Bernardino County due to increasing moisture in a warm air advection environment. Otherwise, widespread cloudiness was occurring from the west mountain slopes to the coast with even some low clouds in the Coachella Valley, mostly flow off from the Salton Sea. Gusty winds were developing over the mountains and desert slopes, with the highest gust so far of 63 MPH at Toro Peak, and mountain wave activity is evident on satellite. The atmospheric river is currently moving through Santa Barbara County where hourly rainfall rates up to 0.91 inches per hour have been recorded in the Alisal burn scar. That atmospheric river will continue to move south and east today but weaken somewhat.

The timing of the AR and related precip is generally 1-5 PM in Orange/San Bernardino County and 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. Widespread flooding is not expected, but local roadway flooding will be possible in low-lying areas.

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. 251600Z . Coasts/Valleys/Mountains . Low clouds with bases 2000-2500 FT MSL with tops 4000-4500 FT MSL this morning. Reduced vis of 2-4 SM, locally under 1 SM where low clouds and terrain intersect. -SHRA will develop as early as 18z Mon across Orange/San Bernardino Counties, and 20z Mon across San Diego/Riverside Counties. More widespread RA developing after 21z Mon in Orange County, moving southeastward, reaching San Diego County around 23z Mon. Vis will be reduced to 2-4 SM and cigs may become locally under 1000 feet MSL during the heaviest RA. RA will diminish after 02z Tue across northern areas, and after 04z Tue across southern/eastern areas.

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.

Deserts . SCT-BKN high clouds AOA 20000 FT MSL. Increasing SCT-BKN with bases 1500-2000 FT developing across the southern Coachella Valley this morning. SCT-BKN developing after 20z 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 strengthening southerly winds today, with a shift to 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 to 25 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.
