SYNOPSIS
Colder this weekend, with periods of light showers and gusty winds occurring through Sunday. Slight warming sets in by Monday, with dry conditions expected through most of next week.

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

A weakening closed low to the southwest is becoming absorbed into the mean flow, and a 534 DM low is off the coast of northern California this afternoon. Onshore flow has strengthened and a persistent marine layer is producing widespread low cloud coverage across the coast and valleys. Temperatures this afternoon are in the upper-50s to mid-60s where there has been extensive cloud cover, but are warming efficiently in the mountains and deserts where skies are clear. Winds will continue to strengthen over the mountains and desert slopes this afternoon, peaking through late tonight.

The storm system to the north will elongate and continue to move southward tomorrow, and a shortwave will pass just to the north of our region on Saturday. Drizzle or very light rain showers will be possible overnight across the coast and valleys, with minimal accumulations expected. The shortwave will spark scattered showers across Orange and San Bernardino Counties by Saturday afternoon, with showers spreading farther south and east into Riverside and San Diego Counties over the subsequent hours. Showers will largely taper off late Saturday night into Sunday morning before the parent storm system passes overhead on Sunday, igniting additional showers. Very little moisture will make it to our region, especially the farther south you go. Total rain amounts for this weekend will range from 0.05-0.30" for the coast and valleys, with the higher end of the range in Orange and San Bernardino Counties, and the lower amounts in San Diego County; 0.25-1.00" in the mountains, highest in San Bernardino County; and a few hundreds of an inch in the High Desert, with the lower deserts remaining dry.

Snow levels around 5500-6500 feet will occur through much of the day on Saturday before falling to 4500-5500 feet on Sunday. The highest accumulations of 3-7" will be possible above 7000 feet in San Bernardino County.

Several rounds of gusty winds will also occur this weekend, in conjunction with the waves passing overhead. The strongest round looks to occur Saturday afternoon and evening in the mountains and deserts, where gusts up to 55 mph will be possible. Breezy south to southwest winds gusts up to 25 mph will even be possible across the coast and valleys. A second round of gusty winds will develop Sunday afternoon and evening as the parent low passes over Southern California.

Cooling temperatures continue through the weekend, with the coldest day of the week likely occurring on Sunday: highs will reach the upper-50s to low-60s across the coast, valleys and High Desert, the upper-30s to 40s in the mountains and low-70s in the deserts.

The low quickly moves to the east on Monday, and ensemble guidance supports warming over Southern California through the middle of next week. Onshore flow will maintain the marine layer, with night and morning low clouds forming west of the mountains most nights and mornings.

AVIATION
121910Z
Coast/Valleys
Widespread low clouds persist in the coastal areas and valleys this afternoon, with bases 1500-2500 ft MSL and tops to 3500 ft MSL with areas of VIS 3-5 miles in BR, locally 1 mile in fog where clouds and terrain intersect. Clearing is unlikely this afternoon in areas below about 2000 ft MSL. Low clouds will spread farther inland tonight and Sat morning with bases 2000-3000 ft MSL and tops to 5000 ft MSL. SCT -SHRA likely to develop Sat afternoon.

Mountains/Deserts...Mostly clear skies and unrestricted VIS will prevail through this evening with terrain obscurations developing on the lower coastal mountain slopes after 10Z Sat. Areas of west winds with surface gusts 25-35 kt will continue through Sat morning, producing weak up/downdrafts and LLWS over and east of the mountains.

MARINE
No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Saturday, though showers will occur Saturday morning into Sunday. Southerly winds could gust locally to around 20 kts for a brief period on Saturday afternoon then West wind gusts could locally exceed 20 knots Sunday and Sunday night.
