Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 340 AM PDT Sun Aug 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak trough along the California coast this weekend will gradually be replaced by a ridge of high pressure as it builds over the Southwest next week. This upper ridge will bring warmer days next week along with a shallower marine layer and less extensive coastal cloudiness. The ridge will intensify toward next weekend, potentially bringing hot weather.

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

Marine layer influence is healthy this morning, with cool coastal conditions spreading across the coastal strip and into valley locations, especially in San Diego County. Patchy fog is also occurring at a few valley locations. Low clouds and fog will burn off by mid morning except at the beaches which will be slower to burn off. The synoptic pattern over SoCal continues to be influenced by a weak baggy upper level trough with temperatures still trending a few degrees below normal for this time of the year. The troughy pattern will linger into midweek, with temperatures not changing much, and the marine layer influence remaining healthy into the western valleys each night and early morning.

By Wednesday, the sprawling subtropical dome of high pressure, currently located over the Southern Plains, will begin to retrograde over the Southwest USA and into SoCal, squeezing out the notorious troughy pattern that we've been experiencing lately. Temperatures will begin a slow march to above normal levels Wednesday through next weekend. The ridge is now forecast to become quite strong by next weekend, with the operational GFS and EC and their ensemble members in generally very good agreement that the upper high could strenghten to around 597-598 DM over the southwest by next weekend. This could spell another heatwave for SoCal, especially for inland locations. Temperatures for the inland valleys may reach around 105 degrees, and temperatures for the lower deserts and The Coachella Valley could hit around 115 degrees once again, perhaps even a few degrees hotter than that. We'll be in full heatwave tracking mode the next several days on the forecast desk here at SGX, and may eventually need to post heat alerts for portions of the region, if these forecast trends continue. At this moment the hottest days look to be Friday through next Monday, so we'll continue to monitor this situation.

The potential for sensible weather looks very low through next weekend, due to the persistent sprawling upper level high pressure ridge expected to build over the southwest region, although any fluctuations in the strenght and positioning of the ridge could have the potential to open up the doors for some subtropical moisture advection into SoCal.

AVIATION.

091030Z . Coast/Valleys . Low clouds increasing in coverage this morning. Bases are 1100-1300 ft MSL with tops to 1700 ft MSL. Cig impacts currently at KSAN and KCRQ. KSNA could have cig impacts at times 12Z-16Z. Expect visibility restrictions of 1-3 miles where clouds and terrain intersect. Low clouds will not reach KONT/KSBD. Clearing expected in the valleys from 16-17Z and along the coast from 17-18Z.

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.

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.
