Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 139 PM PDT Fri Jul 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. Very hot weather inland will peak this weekend as high pressure builds over the Southwest. Coastal areas will not get too hot, and some fog will continue to appear nights and mornings. Moisture aloft is also expected to bring some higher clouds over the region this weekend. Some cooling is expected to begin west of the mountains next week as high pressure weakens, with cooling spreading inland through mid-week. The marine layer will produce a greater coverage of coastal clouds nights and mornings.

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

Coastal clouds have decreased while high clouds from Mexico have increased this afternoon. That moisture feed from Mexico will keep some clouds coming through the weekend, and will produce towering cumulus clouds each afternoon over the mountains. We don't think thunderstorms will happen, but some buildups will get close. The heat is the big story as high pressure aloft presses down over the Southwest. The temperature forecast is on track, only a few adjustments to the temps themselves and no adustments to the heat hazard messaging: warning in deserts (Sat-Mon) and advisory for low elevation inland areas (Sat-Sun). The two weekend days appear to be the hottest over the entire region overall. Noticeable cooling is expected Monday west of the mountains, with noticeable cooling finally reaching the desert Tuesday. The high pressure will squash down the marine layer even more this weekend, such that the cloud deck should be patchier and less uniform in coverage, and only near the coast. Dense fog could be a coastal issue as well as some fog sticking at some beaches this weekend. The high pressure weakens Sunday through Tuesday allowing temperatures to gravitate back to near normal by Tuesday. The marine layer will rebuild and bring back a more solid cloud deck that gets into some western valleys each night and morning. Not much change Tuesday through Friday, only minor variations in temps and coastal cloud cover.

AVIATION. 101910Z . Coast . Mostly clear skies early, then low clouds returning between 09z and 12z Saturday morning. Bases around 1000 feet MSL with tops to 1400 feet spreading not quite as far inland. Clearing out Saturday by 16Z. Some VIS restrictions of 2-5 SM will be possible at coastal terminals Friday night. The risk of BKN-OVC low clouds tonight at KSAN is only low to moderate since a patchy marine layer is expected overnight, so confidence in OVC conditions for tonight is low to moderate. Low to moderate confidence in the timing of the low cloud return as well.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . Clear skies through Saturday with unrestricted visibility. Some mid to high-level clouds above 10,000 feet MSL.

MARINE. Chance of patchy fog with visibility near 1 nm tonight and Saturday night. Otherwise, no hazardous marine conditions are expected through Tuesday.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Excessive Heat Warning from 10 AM Saturday to 8 PM PDT Monday for Apple and Lucerne Valleys-Coachella Valley-San Diego County Deserts-San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning.

Heat Advisory from 10 AM Saturday to 8 PM PDT Sunday for Orange County Inland Areas-Riverside County Mountains-San Bernardino County Mountains-San Bernardino and Riverside County Valleys-The Inland Empire-San Diego County Mountains- San Diego County Valleys-Santa Ana Mountains and Foothills.

PZ . NONE.

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.
