Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 438 AM PDT Sat Aug 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. A trough of low pressure over the region will continue to weaken this weekend, bringing a slight warming trend. Temperatures in inland areas will get closer to normal as the trough weakens and high pressure builds in from the east. This will also bring less cloud cover for the valleys each night and morning, with patchy fog possible at times. Minor day to day changes in temperatures are expected for much of next week.

&

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

A deep marine layer and healthy onshore flow is helping to spread coastal stratus well inland this morning, with some low clouds and patchy fog pushing into the western valleys attm. Have added patchy dense fog for inland areas this morning so be on the alert where the clouds spill into the valleys and interact with terrain.

Onshore gradients will be healthy enough to produce diurnally driven gusty winds through the passes and along the desert slopes today and again Sunday.

The troughy pattern over the west coast will give up some dominance to the broad subtropical ridge over the Southern Plains, which will retrograde over the Desert Southwest through the middle of the new week. Upper level ridging with heights increasing to around 595 DM will bring temperatures above normal but not excessively so. Look for warming for inland areas about 5 degrees above normal with temperatures in the lower deserts and the Coachella Valley about 110-115 degrees.

Another broad upper level trough will develop across the Pac NW mid to late next week, but this feature will be battling it out with the entrenched upper level ridge across SoCal and the rest of the Desert Southwest. So temperatures may moderate to near normal at most in terms of a cooldown by late next week. Though the new week there still is no readily apparent change in the dry pattern, although there is some disagreement in this pattern evolution including with some ensemble members and the Operational GFS is cooler than the EC. bringing another modest cooldown to SoCal, with temperatures settling back down to a bit below normal levels for this time of year.

AVIATION. 080935Z . Coast . Low clouds increasing in coverage over coastal areas this morning. Bases around 900-1200 feet MSL with tops to 1800 feet and vis 1-3 miles where clouds and terrain intersect. Cig impacts currently at KSAN and KCRQ, possibly at KSNA 12Z-16Z but confidence is only moderate. Clearing expected 16Z-18Z. Low clouds returning after 03Z Sun, spreading locally inland by 15Z Sun.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . Smoke from the Apple Fire will occasionally obscure portions of the eastern San Bernardino mountains into the Joshua Tree area. Otherwise, clear skies with unrestricted vis through today.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through Wednesday.

BEACHES. A new south swell will bring higher surf and stronger rip currents to the beaches Monday through Wednesday. Surf of 3-5 feet with some sets to 6 feet is expected in Orange County, while beaches in San Diego County will see some sets to 4 feet.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . NONE.

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.
