Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 121 PM PDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. Fair weather with seasonable temperatures will continue through Saturday. A deep low pressure system will move slowly southward just off the California coast Sunday through Tuesday, then slowly inland Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring longer periods of precipitation to most of Southern California from Sunday evening through Thursday with below normal temperatures.

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

Scattered low clouds remain over portions of the coastal areas and valleys this afternoon, otherwise skies are clear. Temperatures are currently running a couple degrees higher than they were at this time yesterday, with the greatest difference in the mountains and deserts. Low clouds should be less extensive tonight as the coastal eddy weakens and drifts westward. Saturday will be slightly cooler with breezy conditions in the mountains and deserts during the afternoon and evening.

A slow moving, deep upper level low will dig south off the CA coast Sunday through Tuesday, eventually moving inland through Southern CA Wednesday and Thursday. Light precipitation will begin by early Sunday afternoon near the LA County border. Moisture increases significantly on Monday as the upper low taps some subtropical moisture and feeds it directly into extreme Southern CA. Monday morning through Tuesday morning is when the heaviest and most widespread precipitation is expected to occur with the deeper moisture and stalled front over the area. Though instability is someone marginal, kept the slight chance of thunderstorms for Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.

Showers will continue through the day Tuesday as the upper low begins to shift east, though they will be lighter as the subtropical moisture is shunted southward. The upper level low finally moves over on Wednesday. Increasing instability with the cold air aloft could enhance precipitation rates and produce a few thunderstorms. Moisture also increases near the center of the low, so there is the potential for heavier precipitation on Wednesday. Light to moderate showers will follow for Thursday before finally ending sometime Friday.

Storm total precipitation estimates are currently around 1.5-2.5 inches for the coast and valleys, 2-4 inches in the mountains with local amounts up to 6 inches, around 0.75-1.25 inch for the high desert, and around 0.25-0.5 inch for the low desert. Snow levels generally remain between 5000-6000 ft through the duration of the event, though the more substantial accumulations will be above 6500 ft. For elevations near 6000 ft, accumulations will be near 3-6 inches, 6-12 at the 6500 ft level, and 12-24 inches above 6500 ft, with isolated amounts near 4 ft on the highest peaks of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains.

AVIATION. 031930Z . Coast/Valleys . Areas of FEW-SCT low and mid-level clouds 3500-5500 ft MSL, otherwise clear skies. Low clouds with bases 1500- 2500 ft MSL are expected to start moving into coastal areas around 08Z Sat, making it into portions of the western valleys. Low clouds expected to clear in the valleys by 18Z tomorrow, with only partial clearing expected along the coast.

Mountains/Deserts . Mostly clear with unrestricted vis through tonight.

MARINE. Tonight and Saturday evening, northwest winds with gusts occasionally exceeding 20 kt are expected around San Clemente Island. An incoming cold front is expected to produce areas of showers starting Sunday afternoon. The most widespread rain expected Monday and Tuesday morning. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms over the coastal waters Monday night into Tuesday morning. The cold front will produce gusty southwest winds 20-25 kt over the coastal waters throughout the day Monday.

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
