Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA Issued by National Weather Service San Francisco CA 146 PM PDT Thu Apr 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. A low pressure system will continue to impact southern California through Friday, then move more rapidly eastward and weaken by Friday night into Saturday. Periods of showers and high elevation snow showers will continue into Friday, ending Friday night. Saturday through Monday will be warmer and drier, but with high temperatures remaining below average. Then warmer and drier conditions return by the middle of next week.

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

A mid/upper level low pressure system remains parked over south- central California and southern Nevada this afternoon with widespread rain showers and higher elevation snow showers occurring, especially to the north of the San Diego area. The center of the low will retrograde back over the Pacific by Friday morning and continue to produce widespread precipitation over the region through tonight while becoming more widespread. With PWAT values near 1.00" advecting inland over the region, precipitation will be moderate to locally heavy at times. Additionally, snow levels will remain between 5,500 to 6,000 feet through Friday afternoon with accumulating snowfall in the mountains of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties where a Winter Storm Warning remains in effect through 8 PM Friday. As the core of the low moves back over southern California, there will be a slight chance of thunderstorms Friday afternoon given the colder, unstable air mass aloft.

Precipitation will begin to taper off late in the day Friday as the upper level low moves east into Arizona. Afternoon temperatures will warm slightly Friday into the upcoming weekend as southerly flow returns, yet will remain below seasonal averages in response to troughing over the West Coast. Warmer and drier conditions are then likely by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week as the exiting trough is replaced by high pressure building over the eastern Pacific.

AVIATION. 091630Z . Coast/Valleys/Mountains . SCT SHRA will continue this morning, increasing and becoming more widespread this afternoon and evening. SCT-BKN Cigs lowering to around 1700 ft MSL with VSBYS 2-5SM possible with passing showers. Otherwise SCT-BKN cigs will generally remains around 2500-5000 ft MSL. Higher terrain will be obscured at times, and SHSN will fall above 4500 feet MSL.

Deserts . Mostly BKN clouds will prevail in the 5000-10000-foot MSL layer through midday, increasing in the afternoon and possibly lowering to 3000 feet MSL tonight. Mostly ISOLD -SHRA will occur through midday, with some increase this afternoon and evening. Vis could lower to 3-5SM in heavier SHRA.

MARINE. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms Friday afternoon. Otherwise, no hazardous marine weather is expected through Sunday.

BEACHES. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms producing lightning strikes Friday afternoon.

HYDROLOGY. Through Friday, additional rainfall is expected to range from around 1.50 inch near the coast to 1.50 to 2.50 inches in the mountains with 0.50 to 0.75" inch for high desert areas and around 0.25 to 0.50 for low desert areas.

The potential for urban and small stream flooding will increase this evening and into early Friday along with the possibility of isolated flash flooding with thunderstorms or where showers track repeatedly across the same area.

Snow levels will be near 5000 to 5500 feet for tonight into Friday morning and gradually rise late Friday night. In the mountains of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, additional snowfall of 2 to 5 inches is expected from 4500 to 5500 feet, 6 to 8 inches from 5500 to 6500 feet, 8 to 20 inches from 6500 to 7500 feet, with total accumulations of greater than 24 inches on the highest peaks. In San Diego County, 1 to 3 inches is possible above 5500 feet with 1 to 2 inches down to 5000 feet.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Flash Flood Watch through Friday afternoon for Apple and Lucerne Valleys-Coachella Valley-Orange County Coastal Areas-Orange County Inland Areas-Riverside County Mountains-San Bernardino County Mountains-San Bernardino and Riverside County Valleys-The Inland Empire-San Diego County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Deserts-San Diego County Mountains- San Diego County Valleys-San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning- Santa Ana Mountains and Foothills.

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.
