Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 135 PM PDT Sat Sep 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. Seasonal weather will continue today with onshore flow prevailing. High pressure will begin to build in on Sunday and continue through much of next week, bringing hot weather to the region. Winds will turn offshore Sunday through Tuesday, bringing gusty northeast to east winds to the mountains, passes, and foothills. Winds, combined with low humidity and hot weather will result in critical fire weather conditions on Monday. Some very gradual cooling may occur late in the week or next weekend.

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

At 1 PM, low clouds have cleared out and mostly sunny skies prevail across SoCal. Temperatures are generally a couple of degrees cooler than this time yesterday. Seasonal weather will prevail today. Low clouds will spread back inland this evening, reaching into the valleys by daybreak. Some patchy fog is possible on higher coastal terrain and in some valleys overnight.

Enjoy the seasonal weather while it lasts, because a heat wave is in store Sunday through much of next week. High pressure will begin to build over the West on Sunday, bringing hot weather to the region for much of the week. The heat will be more noticeable on Monday, and will peak Tuesday through Thursday. The greatest warming will be in the inland valleys and along the coast. The inland valleys will be well into the upper 90s, with some spots reaching over 100 degrees Tuesday through Thursday. Coastal areas will also be feeling some heat too, with mid to upper 80s likely, perhaps some inland coastal areas reaching into the 90s.

Pressure gradients will shift offshore Sunday through Tuesday, bringing breezy northeast to east winds to the mountains, passes, and foothills of the valleys. Winds will mostly be weak on Sunday, with peak gusts around 25 to 30 mph. The strongest winds are looking to be late Sunday night into Monday afternoon, with gusts generally peaking at 35 to 40 mph. Higher gusts may occur in the windier canyons and passes. Winds will decrease Monday evening, and could increase again on Tuesday, but current model guidance suggests these winds will be weaker than on Monday. This offshore flow will also bring low humidity to the mountains, passes and foothills, with minimum daytime humidity of 10 to 15 percent. Winds, combined with low humidity, will elevate the fire weather threat through much of the week, with critical fire weather conditions expected for Monday. A Fire Weather Watch remains in effect for Monday for the Riverside and San Diego mountains, as well as the foothills and through the San Gorgonio Pass. The San Bernardino Mountains were included into the Fire Weather Watch in this forecast package.

We may see a very slight reprieve from the heat sometime late next week or next weekend, but temperatures still look to remain warm and above normal through at least next weekend.

AVIATION. 262000Z . Coast/Valleys . Mostly clear skies will prevail this afternoon with mostly unrestricted vis. Stratus will develop along the coast 01Z-05Z this evening eventually spreading 25-30 miles inland by 12Z Sun. Bases will be 1000-1400 ft MSL with tops to 1800 ft MSL, with clearing in most areas 16Z-19Z Sun, except with clouds likely lingering near the coast Sun afternoon, possibly including some coastal airports. Local vis will be 1-3 miles in some of the valleys and higher coastal terrain 08Z-16Z Sun, along with local terrain obscurations.

Mountains/Deserts . Mostly clear with unrestricted vis through Sunday. Areas of east surface winds 15-25 knots with local gusts 30 knots will develop Sunday mainly through San Gorgonio Pass and along mountain ridges.

MARINE. No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Thursday.

FIRE WEATHER. Onshore flow will prevail today. Southwest winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph will occur this afternoon in the mountains and deserts, with afternoon humidities from 10-15%. This could bring a few hours of elevated fire weather conditions to those areas this afternoon and evening.

Low clouds and higher relative humidity will extend into the western valleys overnight as a coastal eddy develops and keeps the marine layer around 1000 feet deep.

On Sunday, offshore winds begin to surface in the mountains. Northeast to east winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph will occur, along with low humidity of 10 to 15 percent. This will bring near-critical fire weather conditions to the mountains on Sunday. The strongest offshore winds arrive Sunday night and Monday with northeast to east winds of 15 to 25 mph gusting to 40 mph, resulting in critical fire weather conditions for the mountains, passes and foothills. A Fire Weather Watch will be in effect for Monday from 5 AM to 5 PM for the Riverside and San Diego mountains, as well as the foothills of the inland valleys and the San Gorgonio Pass. The San Bernardino mountains were included into the Fire Weather Watch with this forecast package. Weak to occasionally moderate offshore winds, low humidity and hot weather are expected Tuesday through Thursday, resulting in elevated to near-critical fire weather conditions through much of next week.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Fire Weather Watch from late Sunday night through Monday afternoon for Riverside County Mountains-Including The San Jacinto Ranger District Of The San Bernardino National Forest-San Bernardino County Mountains-Including The Mountain Top And Front Country Ranger Districts Of The San Bernardino National Forest-San Bernardino and Riverside County Valleys -The Inland Empire-San Diego County Inland Valleys-San Diego County Mountains-Including The Palomar And Descanso Ranger Districts of the Cleveland National Forest-San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
