Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 941 PM PST Fri Feb 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. A trough of low pressure will bring slightly cooler weather tomorrow along with scattered low clouds near the coast. A Santa Ana pattern tomorrow night will bring strong northeast winds to the mountains and deserts through Sunday. Sunday will be a cooler day in all areas. Monday will be sunny and warmer with lighter offshore winds. A trough over the Pacific may bring light rain west of the mountains Tuesday night and Wednesday.

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

Evening Update:

The evening update was made earlier to back off the low clouds overnight. There still could be some patchy low clouds near the immediate coast but we no longer expect to see widespread low clouds, based on the latest observations and trends in surface data, as well as the latest high resolution forecasts. No other significant changes were needed this evening.

Previous forecast discussion, issued at 210 PM PST:

Skies were clear all across the land today. That will change this weekend as another Santa Ana pattern sets up.

It all begins when shortwave over the Pacific Northwest digs south across the Great Basin tonight and then into Arizona Sunday. Onshore gradients ahead of the wave will bring a few degrees of cooling Saturday, and there may also be scattered low clouds in the coastal zones as a weak Catalina Eddy spins up over the coastal waters.

The Santa Ana winds begin in earnest Saturday night. However, there will be breezy north winds during the day Saturday in the San Bernardino Mountains, foothills, and the Inland Empire below the Cajon Pass as the north-south gradients increase. This wind event looks similar in strength, timing and coverage as the Thursday event. A High Wind Watch will be in effect from 10 PM Saturday through 4 PM Sunday for the San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange County mountains and foothills, the Inland Empire, and northern sections of the Coachella Valley. Winds of 20-40 mph will gust from 50-60 mph with gusts to 75 mph in the most wind prone sites.

Sunday will be a cooler day in the mountains and deserts as the cold north winds keep highs in the 30s in the SBD mountains and from 40- 50 elsewhere. The deserts will be cooler too with highs in the 50s in the High Deserts, and around 70 in the Lower Deserts. Valley highs will be in the 60s, while the coastal highs will warm into the 70s as the warm downslope flow reaches the coast.

The winds diminish Sunday evening, and Monday will be sunny and warmer in all areas except near the coast where temperatures will be a little cooler as weak onshore flow returns there.

Forecast challenges remain for the midweek outlook. The huge disparity in the model solutions that we observed three days ago hasn't changed much. Cluster groupings weighted with the CMC and ECMWF favor dry weather Tuesday and Wednesday, while the cluster grouping weighted more heavily with the GFS are wetter, especially on Wednesday. However, there is one change that was noted today with the 12Z operational ECMWF. It now shows a shortwave in the northern jet breaking free and digging south over the eastern Pacific. This is more in line with a GFS solution, and is the first sign of any consensus at all. The afternoon package is a blend of the CMC/GFS/ECMWF, and now contains a slightly greater potential for precipitation Tuesday night and primarily Wednesday.

After Wednesday the trough moves inland with ridging aloft and dry, warmer weather Thursday and Friday.

AVIATION.

270345Z . Mostly clear skies through tonight. Patchy SCT low clouds 400-800 ft MSL may impact VCNTY KSAN/KCRQ after 08Z tonight. Confidence is low on areal extent and timing. Any low clouds that do hang around will clear by 16-18Z Saturday.

Locally breezy W-NW winds will be possible this evening through Sat morning across mtns and adjacent desert slopes, with gusts of 30 to 40 kts, isolated higher gusts across wind-prone areas. Winds will diminish Sat afternoon before turning offshore Saturday night into Sunday.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through Saturday afternoon. Breezy northwest winds will be possible for several hours Saturday evening with gusts to 20 kts at times before rapidly turning to the east-northeast. Winds on Sunday morning may gust 20 to 30 kts at times across northern and western portions of the coverage area.

FIRE WEATHER. Dry Santa Ana winds begin Saturday night and continue through Sunday as high pressure builds over the Great Basin. Winds from 20-40 mph with gusts of 50-60 mph are likely in the San Bernardino, Santa Ana Mountains and parts of the Riverside County mountains and the Inland Empire. Highest wind gusts of 70 mph are likely at the most wind prone stations. Humidity on Sunday will fall to around 10%, and the strong winds and low RH will elevate the fire weather concerns.

Humidities remain low Monday but the Santa Ana winds will be lighter and more localized in the canyons and mountain passes.

SKYWARN. Skywarn activation will not be needed Saturday.

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Wind Watch from Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon for Orange County Inland Areas-Riverside County Mountains- San Bernardino County Mountains-San Bernardino and Riverside County Valleys-The Inland Empire-San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning-Santa Ana Mountains and Foothills.

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.
