Synopsis
Low pressure over the west will bring cooler weather this week,
with more extensive coastal clouds during nights and mornings.

Gusty winds are expected in parts of the mountains and deserts
each afternoon and evening. The low pressure weakens Friday,
bringing warmer weather and less coastal cloudiness this weekend.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
counties...

Update...

patches of low cloudiness have dissipated with sunshine now
prevailing across socal this morning. Temps early this morning
ranged from the 30s in parts of the eastern san bernardinos to the
70s in the lower deserts with even a few stations near 80.

A weak offshore pressure gradient will become onshore today and
strengthen through Thursday. This will lead to cooler conditions
along with afternoon and evening gusty winds along the desert
mountain slopes as well as through and below the mountain passes
(desert side). No significant changes were made to the forecast
this morning.

Previous discussion (issued at 220 am pdt Tue sep 17 2019)...

patches of coastal low clouds are trying to gain traction this
morning, but are struggling to generate a uniform cloud cover
anywhere. We do expect most coastal areas will awake to some gray
this morning. Higher up and farther inland, the last vestiges of
yesterday's moisture in the form of mountain wave clouds are
exiting stage right. A trough of low pressure will move through
the west this morning. On its heels will be another deeper trough
rolling through on Thursday. Because of that we're looking at a
few days of cooler than average weather across socal. Thursday
appears to be the coolest, with MAX temps 5 to 15 degrees below
average, except at the coast. The marine layer, aided by an
intermittent coastal eddy, should be deep enough to get some
coastal clouds into parts of inland valleys each night morning.

However, the cooler air aloft will weaken the marine inversion, so
cloud coverage will probably not be uniform. Each trough will
boost onshore flow and generate winds across mountain ridges,
through passes and into adjacent deserts each afternoon and
evening. Top gusts should exceed 40 mph in the favored locations,
particularly Thursday evening. On Friday a touch of offshore flow
develops in the wake of Thursday's trough, but only some weak
offshore breezes are expected in the foothills. For the weekend
high pressure really doesn't build; it's more of a continued
weakening of the trough. That will bring warmer weather Friday
through Sunday and a decrease to the nocturnal coastal cloudiness.

Next week is highly uncertain with models and ensemble solutions
all over the map. Some features of the 00z runs in particular are
pretty entertaining. With higher confidence we can say the general
pattern keeps a long wave trough pattern over the west next week,
keeping our weather near or on the cool side of average, a
fitting and seasonal start to fall.

Aviation
171445z... Coast valleys... Patchy low clouds are beginning to
scatter,VFR conditions expected for rest of today. Patchy low
clouds with bases 1200-1800 ft msl will redevelop along the coast
after 08z wed, and gradually extend inland. Intermittent CIGS will
impact coastal TAF sites 10z-16z wed. Only vis restrictions will
occur on elevated coastal terrain obscured by clouds.

Mountains deserts...VFR conditions prevailing today. Near the
surface, gusty W winds 20-30 kt primarily over the mountains and
through passes and canyons.

Marine
Nw winds will strengthen slightly on Thursday evening, when some
locations over the outer waters near san clemente island may see
gusts approaching 20 kt at times. Otherwise, no hazardous boating
conditions are expected through Saturday.

Fire weather
Gusty and locally strong onshore winds are expected each afternoon
and evening today through Thursday. Top gusts should reach 35 to
45 mph. These local winds will combine with low inland humidity to
elevate fire weather conditions for favored pockets along mountain
ridges, through mountain passes and into adjacent deserts.

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

Sgx watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.
