Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 130 PM PST Sun Mar 7 2021

SYNOPSIS. Cooler and unsettled weather will occur this week, with more clouds, periods of rain, mountain snow, and gusty winds. Some light rain is possible tonight into Monday morning over the coastal basin, but the steadier and more widespread precipitation will begin Tuesday evening as a large storm system slowly makes its way into Southern California. Most of the rain and snow will occur Wednesday and Thursday, with showers tapering Friday. Temperatures will be well below normal by midweek, but as the storm departs, drier and somewhat warmer weather will return for the weekend.

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

Satellite imagery at midday showed high clouds streaming northeastward off the Pacific and across SoCal. There are lots of breaks, so some sun is making it through. Most areas are reporting midday temperatures a few degrees lower than yesterday. The sfc pressure gradients are weak at Noon PST, but there were still some SW wind reports of 20G30 MPH in the mountains.

Widespread low clouds will return from the coast to the coastal mountain slopes where fog will develop overnight as a weak upper- level disturbance traverses SoCal. This deepening of the marine layer may drip a few light showers or drizzle overnight into Monday morning, which could make for some wet roads for the morning commute, but any measurable amounts will be very light. Breezy westerly winds will continue over the mountains and deserts.

For Monday and Tuesday, provided we clear the lower clouds, high clouds will not be an issue. So expect more sun, but not a whole lot warmer as steady onshore flow and a cooling airmass prevail. By Tuesday afternoon, maximum temperatures are expected to be running from 5F below average at the coast, to 10F or more below average inland. Stronger winds over the mts/deserts may require an Advisory for Tue afternoon/evening.

A slow-moving low pressure area dropping south just off the West Coast will increase the westerly winds Tue/Wed over the mountains and deserts and build the marine layer up onto the coastal mountain slopes with areas of fog at times. Precipitation is forecast to break out late Tuesday over the mts and become more widespread through the night. QPF looks to be heaviest and most widespread on Wednesday with good upper-level jet support and modest PW values. Instability and lift look to be maximized on Wednesday when thunderstorms will be possible. As the dynamic lift fades, strong thermodynamic instability continues through Thursday due to very cold air aloft which may continue to support isolated thunderstorm development over the coastal waters and onto the immediate coast. The precipitation should become more showery on Thursday, and may end by Friday, but there is some lingering very cold air (500 mb temp -30C) and support for isolated showers into Friday. Dry, with a warming trend appears to be in the works for next weekend, but temperatures are still likely to be below average.

Winter Weather . This event will be a cold one, with most of the precipitation falling as snow above 4000 FT. Daytime temperatures are forecast to be running 15-20F below normal. Even though Precipitable water values are not excessive, the depth of moisture and cold air aloft suggest the rain to snow ratio will be larger than normal, enhancing accumulations. By far, the wettest model is the ECMWF. It has also been slower moving the storm as more energy enters the circulation from the north. Many ensemble members of this model are considerably wetter at sites across the CWA than others in the CMC/GEFS. Based on the pattern on all of the global models, QPF from a blend of the CMC/NAM12/ECMWF seems more reasonable. The latest WRF runs are looking wetter too, so a Winter Storm Watch has been issued beginning Tue evening and continuing through Thursday evening. For further details please see Watch details at LAXWSWSGX. A Winter Weather Advisory may also be needed for the High Deserts.

AVIATION. 072100Z . Scattered low clouds with bases around 2500 feet MSL continue this afternoon. Low cloud ceilings between 2000-3000 feet MSL will begin to fill the basin and into the valleys after 00Z Monday.

MARINE. Northwest winds will weaken this morning. More rounds of gusty northwest winds expected in the afternoons Monday through Thursday. A small craft advisory has been issued for the outer waters beginning late Monday afternoon, and for the inner waters beginning Tuesday morning.

BEACHES. An increased west swell will result in elevated surf and a high rip current risk at the beaches through this morning. Surf will mainly range from 3-6 feet in southern San Diego County. Surf will decrease late this afternoon.

HYDROLOGY .

The incoming storm for the midweek period will have a modest moisture tap, but good dynamics and cold air aloft could support moderate to locally brief, heavy rainfall rates in isolated showers and thunderstorms. Persistent heavy rainfall is unlikely. Current estimates are for the period from late Tuesday through Thursday night . Coast and Valleys . 0 75-1.25 inches, Mountains. 1-2 inches (most of which will fall as snow), Deserts . 0.10-0.30 inches. Runoff in periods of moderate to briefly heavy rainfall could cause local flooding of poorly drained and urban areas. Mainstem River flooding is not expected, but once again, the San Diego River at Fashion Valley is forecast to reach about 6 FT. There is a small chance for Monitor Stage to be reached late Wednesday or Thursday.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Winter Storm Watch from Tuesday evening through Thursday evening for Riverside County Mountains-San Bernardino County Mountains-San Diego County Mountains.

PZ . Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM Monday to 4 PM PST Tuesday for Waters from San Mateo point to the Mexican Border Extending 30 to 60 nm out including San Clemente Island.

Small Craft Advisory from 10 AM to 4 PM PST Tuesday for Coastal Waters from San Mateo Point to the Mexican Border and out to 30 nm.
