Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 156 PM PST Thu Feb 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. Fair weather and temperate conditions can be expected through Friday. A low pressure system will come into the region late Friday through early Sunday, bringing some cooler weather and chances for showers and even some thunderstorms. Dry weather will return on Sunday into the first part of next week. Offshore flow is likely early next week, which will bring locally gusty winds to the mountains, deserts and passes.

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

An area of high pressure will continue to build over the western U.S., providing dry and warm weather today into tomorrow. Some tropic moisture out of the southwest will continue to provide some high clouds for the rest of today into tomorrow. We are seeing some warm temperatures today with some spots currently in the low 80s. We will see another another dry day Friday with temperatures in the upper 70s with high clouds moving in throughout the day.

An area of low pressure currently located west of San Francisco this afternoon will move into our area Friday night. Ensemble guidance has slightly slowed the speed of this storm system. This will bring areas of light to moderate rain and snow showers starting Friday night and potentially lasting into early Sunday morning. Conditions continue to look favorable with the southwesterly flow for the possibility of some thunderstorms impacting the coasts and valleys early Saturday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our entire area in a "General" thunderstorm risk.

Generally under one tenth of an inch expected for the lower deserts, slightly higher for the High Desert. The coast and valleys are expected to receive anywhere from one tenth up to close to half inch near the coastal mountain slopes. Areas of the mountains below 5500 feet will receive a half to three quarters of an inch. The snow level will start around 6,500 feet then lower 5,500 feet. A trace to three inches expected between 5,500 and 6,500 feet. Above 6,5000 feet will see three to locally eight inches of fresh snow.

The storm system will exit the area Sunday as an area of high pressure will progress eastward toward Southern California. This will make for tranquil weather into early next week. Offshore flow will likely occur Monday and Tuesday, with periods of gusty northeast winds in the mountains and deserts possible. NBM guidance continues to show a somewhat weaker event, but we will continue to monitor. Some of the latest ensemble models hinting at another storm system moving into the region sometime late next week.

AVIATION. 202027Z . Coast/Valleys . Patchy low clouds based around 500 feet MSL with tops around 1000 feet near the coast KCRQ - KSAN will continue to dissipate slowly this afternoon. After about 21/10Z tonight low clouds based around 600-900 feet MSL with tops to near 1200 feet MSL are possible immediate coast and a few miles inland. Intermittent sct-bkn clouds are possible with local vis restrictions of 2-4 SM in patchy fog possible as well. The risk of a brief bkn low cloud deck at KSAN Friday morning is low-moderate, so confidence is moderate on mainly SCT low clouds at KSAN Friday morning.

Mountains/Deserts . Mostly clear skies with some occasional high clouds through Friday.

MARINE. A storm system is expected to move across the region Friday night into Saturday with a slight chance of thunderstorms, along with occasional showers. Otherwise, no other hazardous marine weather is expected through next Wednesday.

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