Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 125 PM PDT Wed Apr 17 2024

SYNOPSIS
Warm and dry days will continue through the period with minor day to day changes in the weather expected. A weak shortwave trough will bring subtle cooling over the next couple of days with a deeper marine layer, where clouds and fog will expand in coverage west of the mountains each night and morning, as well as windier conditions across inland areas. High pressure will once again build over the American Southwest and bring slightly warmer temperatures and less wind by the weekend into early next week. A trough will move into the area off the coast sometime by the middle of next week, providing cooler and breezier weather for SoCal.

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

.SHORT TERM (Wednesday through Friday)...
A slow and steady period of marine laying mixing has occurred through the day, with partial clearing across the beaches and coastal waters. Clearing will continue slowly across Orange County through the afternoon. As the ridge overhead breaks down today with an approaching trough, the marine layer will deepen, allowing for low clouds and fog to penetrate up to 10 miles inland tonight and Thursday morning. Visibility will not be as low as it is today, though some foggy conditions may occur on elevated terrain. Winds will be fairly week across the mountains and deserts today where areas will see winds 25-40 MPH.

Onshore flow will increase by Thursday, bringing subtle cooling to the region and breezier conditions across inland areas. HRRR shows wind probabilities moderate to high in seeing wind gusts over 35 MPH across the mountains and deserts by Thursday afternoon and evening, including places along Interstates 8 & 10 and Route 78 through the Anza Borrego Desert. Winds will be greatest and most widespread on Friday afternoon and night, where these probabilities increase. Friday will cool slightly further, though temperatures will still be near to slightly above average.

.LONG TERM (This Weekend into Next Week)...
The weak trough will be replaced by a building area of high pressure off the coast into the desert southwest. This will relax the pressure gradient field, leading to calmer winds across inland areas. High temperatures will also increase as 850mb temperatures exceed 20C, peaking on Sunday. We continue to watch the Coachella Valley and Anza Borrego Desert to see if anyone will hit their first triple digit temperature of the season. NBM probabilities indicated a 40-60% chance of reaching this mark across the Coachella Valley and a 25-45% chance across the Anza Borrego Desert. GFS/ECMWF ensembles differ slightly in timing of the departure of this ridge on Monday or Tuesday, but a trough entering off the coast looks evident sometime by the middle of next week, which will bring cooling to the region with breezier conditions inland.

AVIATION
171945Z
Coast
Patchy low clouds will linger over portions of the coastal waters today with fog lingering near the coast as well. Low clouds will redevelop over inland areas after 03Z tonight with more expansive and uniform coverage overnight into Thursday. Bases should be 700-1200 feet MSL with tops to 1600 feet. Low clouds should scatter out by or shortly after 16z Thu.

Otherwise...mostly clear skies with unrestricted vis today, with some increase in high clouds tonight.

MARINE
No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Sunday.

BEACHES
A long-period swell (3 feet/17 seconds/200 deg) from the southern hemisphere will build surf up to 6 feet today through Thursday, especially on south-facing beaches. This will generate a high rip current risk.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CA...None.
PZ...None.
