Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 102 PM PST Sat Jan 18 2020

SYNOPSIS. Building high pressure aloft and offshore flow will bring warmer weather through Sunday. On Monday, it will be cooler as thick high clouds from the subtropics snuff out most of the sun. There may even be some sprinkles or light rain showers as this moisture drifts overhead through Tuesday. A deep marine layer on Wednesday will continue the cooling, along with the possibility of some scattered, light rain showers. Fair, dry, and warmer weather returns later in the week. The next chance of

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

It was a chilly start this morning as many valley temperatures fell into the upper 30s or low 40s. Abundant sunshine today remedied that quickly, so by midday many temp reports were in the upper 60s. Helping out was offshore flow, drying and warming the air further near the sfc west of the mts At Noon PST. the sfc pressure gradient had reached -8 mbS (SW NV to KSAN) and peak NE wind gusts had reached 45-50 MPH near the passes. Based on the local WRF model, these winds will continue gusty along the coastal foothills and through the passes into Sunday before weakening late in the day.

Skies will remain mostly clear overnight, and with low dewpoints, it will be quite cool again by morning, but overall, not as cold as last night. A warmer day is on tap for Sunday as high clouds begin to thicken from the west. Many areas should top 70F. Those clouds were visible today in IR imagery well off the Coast. Cloud signatures near 30N and 140W, were indicative of cyclogenesis and better organization of this feature. Several operational model runs show it peaking well offshore this weekend, then weakening as it moves over SoCal, but many maintain at least some light precip as the remnants drift over us.

Thick high clouds are likley on Monday ahead of this system and there is a chance of sprinkles or light showers for now. Tue night into Wed morning another weak disturbance from the northwest deepens the marine layer with more light showers possible, mainly along and west of the mts. None of this is expected to amount to much, but it could get things wet at times and limited sun will keep it cooler during the days.

After Wednesday, another ridge builds along the West Coast bringing SoCal fair and warmer weather to wrap up the week, but the outlook is clouded a bit into the following week. It looks like about half of the 12Z GFS ensemble members turn wet just after the weekend as a North Pacific shortwave dives down the Coast. Both the ECMWF/GFS operational runs tracks are not favorable for heavy precipitation here, but the ECMWF model, as usual, is considerably stronger with the wave and more it's ensemble members generate precip.

AVIATION. 182100Z . VFR conditions expected with SCT-BKN high clouds AOA 20000 ft MSL through Sunday afternoon. Weak sea breezes expected at coastal TAF sites with local easterly gusts in the mountains near 25 kts through the evening.

MARINE. Expect an increase in wave height on Wednesday over the extreme southwestern portions of the Outer Waters south of San Clemente Island. The new NW swell will generate seas of 6-8 ft. Otherwise, no hazardous marine conditions are expected.

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

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