Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 150 PM PST Tue Feb 20 2024

SYNOPSIS
Steady rainfall will continue across Orange County, the Inland Empire and San Bernardino County this afternoon. More widespread rain will develop late tonight into Wednesday morning across San Diego County and Riverside County. Thunderstorms will be possible overnight, mainly focused on San Diego County. Snow levels around 6600-6800 feet today will fall as low as 6000 feet overnight. Dry and warmer conditions return Thursday through Saturday before unsettled weather develops Sunday into next week.

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

At 1 PM, a 545 DM low is churning off the coast of Oregon. A narrow atmospheric river is feeding into Southern California, which is depicted clearly on visible satellite imagery. Steady rain is ongoing across a corridor from Orange County through the Inland Empire and the San Bernardino County Mountains. Over the past twelve hours, these areas have received 0.75 to 1.50 inch of rain, with local amounts over 2 inches in the foothills of the San Bernardino County Mountains. Farther south, several hours of steady rain resulted in rainfall up to 0.75 inch in northern San Diego County, and 0.25 to 0.50 inch in central and south county.
Pockets of heavy rainfall are occurring just over the county line into Los Angeles, where rates of 0.25-0.50"/hr are being observed.
Steady moderate to locally heavy rain will continue across our northern areas, while more intermittent activity will occur across southern portions of the Inland Empire into San Diego County this afternoon.

A deeply amplified trough, currently located around 600 miles off the coast of Southern California, will continue to progress eastward this evening and overnight. Vorticity along the base of the trough will stretch and PVA will move into extreme southern California or northern Baja overnight. This will lead to more widespread rain activity, mainly focused on San Diego County, overnight. Forecast soundings show SBCAPE values of 200-400 J/kg, leading to potential thunderstorms. At this time, it looks like a broken line of thunderstorms could move through south county very early Wednesday morning, with briefly very heavy rainfall and small hail possible. Exact timing of this remains very uncertain, but multiple runs of the latest CAMs are showing this potential.
If this does occur, the line should quickly move eastward, exiting San Diego County by sunrise. Behind the main precipitation band associated with the shortwave, isolated showers may continue through the day due to cold air instability.

Additional Rain through Wednesday:

Orange County/Inland Empire: 0.75-1.25".

San Diego Coast/Valleys:0.75-1.25".

San Bernardino County Mountains: 0.75-2.00".

Riverside/San Diego County Mountains: 1.00-1.75".

High Desert: 0.20-0.40".

Lower Deserts: 0.10-0.25".

Snow levels are right around 6600-6800 feet in the San Bernardino County Mountains this afternoon, and likely above 7000-7500 feet in Riverside County. Snow levels will hold steady through this evening before falling 500-1000 feet overnight into Wednesday morning. Additional snowfall of 1-2 feet can be expected above 8000 feet, with 3-8" from 7000-8000 feet and 1-3" 6000-7000 feet.

Gusty winds will develop behind the system as it departs to the east on Wednesday, with peak wind gusts of 40-50 mph over the Riverside County Mountains and San Diego County Mountains, as well as the lower desert slopes.

We will see a break in the active weather by Thursday as ridging begins to build over the western United States. Temperatures begin to rise on Thursday but will still be around 2-5 degrees below seasonal averages. Warming continues on Friday and Saturday, with highs up to 5 degrees above normal. A closed low forming to our southwest will lead to increasing moisture aloft, resulting in high cloud cover.

Unsettled weather returns for the second half of the weekend into early next week as the aforementioned closed low becomes an open wave and is absorbed into the mean longwave trough, covering much of the western United States. This leads to cooler temperatures by Sunday, and returning rain chances early next week.

AVIATION

Multiple SCT-OVC cloud layers with bases 1500-4000 ft MSL and tops to 7000 ft MSL continuing into Wednesday morning.
