Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 123 PM PDT Thu Apr 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. A coastal eddy will maintain a deep marine layer into Friday with night and morning coastal low clouds spreading onto the coastal mountain slopes. Cool but fair weather continues into Saturday. A low pressure system will move slowly southward just off the California coast for Sunday through Tuesday, then slowly inland for Wednesday and Thursday. This is expected to bring periods of precipitation to portions of southern California for Sunday into Thursday with well below average high temperatures.

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

Low clouds have cleared from portions of the coast, but it remains at least partly cloudy for the remaining areas west of the mountains. Low clouds will become more widespread again tonight as a coastal eddy remains in place. Better clearing is expected on Friday as the eddy drifts southwest and a weak passing trough weakens the marine inversion somewhat. Low cloud coverage may not extend quite as far inland Friday night into Saturday due to the further southwest placement of the eddy. Mild weather with highs near to slightly below normal will continue into Saturday.

A closed low pressure system centered off the northern California coast on Sunday will slowly dig southward through the early part of next week. There is still some spread in the position of the center of the upper low beyond Monday. The deterministic GFS remains on the faster edge of the guidance, though the 12Z ensemble mean is more in line with the ECMWF, similar to the 00Z runs. Given that the GFS keeps trending slower and the remaining guidance clusters around a slower solution, have trended precip timing and amounts towards the slower guidance. This means light precipitation possibly starting Sunday afternoon, with periods of heavier precipitation Monday morning into Tuesday morning as a plume of subtropical moisture nudges into extreme southern California. Instability is fairly marginal, but went ahead and added a slight chance of thunderstorms for coastal areas and valleys on Monday.

Showers will continue through the day Tuesday and into Wednesday. What was once looking like a potent short wave moving through on Wednesday is now forecast to dig further south and into northern Baja, limiting chances for another round of heavier precipitation here. So expect showers on Wednesday to remain light to occasionally moderate. One more little short wave moves through on Thursday as the low drifts east, continuing the chance of showers. Light precipitation may even last beyond then as the ensembles as well as deterministic EC and CMC remain very slow to move the low out of the area.

From Sunday into Thursday, rainfall could range from 1.5 to 2 inches near the coast to 2.5 to 4 inches in the mountains with local amounts to 6 inches in the San Bernardino mountains. In the deserts, rainfall of 0.75-1.25 inch is possible in high deserts areas with around one quarter inch in the lower deserts.

Confidence is increasing on when the more significant periods of precipitation will occur, though overall there is still quite a bit of uncertainty. Snow levels will occasionally lower to around 5000 ft by Wednesday, but the more significant snowfall will be above 5500-6000 feet. Around 6-12 inches of snow is possible above 6000 ft, and 1-2 ft above 7000 ft. The highest peaks of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains could receive 3 ft or more.

High temperatures will be well below average for Sunday through Thursday. Monday through Wednesday the coolest days with high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average except towards the coast.

AVIATION. 022000Z . Coast/Valleys . Patchy areas of BKN low clouds with bases 2500 to 3000 ft MSL in southern San Diego County. Otherwise, widespread SCT-BKN clouds 3500-5500 ft MSL. Low clouds to move ashore and become more widespread after 02Z in San Diego County, and after 05Z in Orange County. Clouds 1500-2500 ft MSL with tops 2500 feet expected to fill most of the coastal basin overnight into Friday.

Mountains/Deserts . Mostly clear skies and unrestricted vis through tonight.

MARINE. Friday and Saturday evening, periods of breezy northwest winds with gusts occasionally exceeding 20 kts are expected around San Clemente Island. An incoming cold front is expected to produce areas of showers starting as early as Sunday, with most widespread rain expected Monday/Tuesday. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms over the coastal waters Monday and Monday night.

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

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