Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 323 AM PST Tue Jan 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. Lingering showers over the San Diego County mountains will end this morning. Dry weather with a warming trend is then expected for Wednesday through Saturday with high temperatures warming to near to slightly above average. A weak trough of low pressure moving inland through California could bring some light precipitation some time around late Sunday into early Monday. Sunday and Monday will be cooler with dry weather and a warming trend from Tuesday of next week through the end of the month.

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

A weak trough of low pressure is moving inland through southern California early this morning with satellite and radar imagery showing the back edge of the showers and the higher level moisture just off the coast. Most of the showers are expected to end by around 6 AM but will linger near the San Diego County mountains into the morning.

For southwestern San Bernardino and northern Orange Counties measurable rainfall has been spottier and light, generally a trace to a few hundredths of an inch. South of there through San Diego County, bands of showers have produced somewhat greater amounts of one tenth to around one quarter inch in some areas with isolated amounts to around one third inch.

Satellite imagery also shows more extensive low clouds extending off the coast and covering much of the southern California bight. Clouds will gradually decrease today with slight warming of high temperatures.

Slow warming will continue on Wednesday with some high clouds possible as a very weak low pressure system moves inland through southern California. High pressure aloft near the West Coast is expected to continue dry weather and bring greater warming for Thursday through Saturday with near to slightly above average high temperatures.

For Sunday into early Monday, a weak low pressure system moving inland though southern California is expected to bring cooling, more clouds, and chances for a period of mostly light precipitation along and west of mountains. Dry weather with a warming trend is then expected through the end of the month.

AVIATION. 211000Z . The higher cloud deck of around 8000 feet MSL will decrease from west to east this morning while low clouds between 2500-5000 feet MSL continue from the coast to the mountains. Through 13Z expect occasional -SHRA and vis 3-5SM. Low clouds to scatter out 18-22Z from coast toward valleys and lastly along mountain slopes. Areas of low clouds redevelop after 04Z at around 2000 feet MSL with random coverage across the coastal basin.

MARINE. No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Saturday.

BEACHES. well and surf will build late today through Wednesday, generating surf of 4-6 feet along portions of southern San Diego County Wednesday. The higher sets, along with a long swell period, will create some strong rip currents and hazardous swimming conditions.

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

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
