Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 855 AM PDT Thu Apr 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. A coastal eddy will maintain a deep marine layer into Saturday with night and morning coastal low clouds spreading onto the coastal mountain slopes. Cool but fair weather continues into Saturday. A low pressure system will move slowly southward just off the California coast for Sunday through Tuesday, then slowly inland for Wednesday and Thursday. This is expected to bring periods of precipitation to portions of southern California for Sunday into Thursday with well below average high temperatures.

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

The marine layer deepened substantially this morning, spilling through the mountain passes and even into the high desert. The eddy remains in place and while there are signs of breaks in the clouds on satellite, they will be slow to clear, with some areas possibly remaining cloudy through the day. Better clearing is expected on Friday as the eddy drifts southwest and a weak passing trough weakens the marine inversion somewhat. Extensive low clouds will follow for Friday night into Saturday as the eddy strengthens again. Mild weather with highs near to slightly below normal will continue into Saturday.

A closed low pressure system centered off the northern California coast on Sunday will move slowly southward through the early part of the week. There is some spread in the position of the center of the upper low for Monday and Tuesday with the non-GFS solutions still fairly close on Tuesday. At that time, the GFS ensemble mean is close to the model consensus with the operational GFS the faster and more eastern outlier. The upper low may drift slowly toward the southeast into Wednesday, then move slowly eastward with increasing spread in the timing for Wednesday into Thursday.

From Sunday into Thursday, rainfall could range from 1 to 1.5 inches near the coast to 2.5 to 3.5 inches in the mountains with local amounts to 6 inches in the San Bernardino mountains. In the deserts, rainfall of one half to one inch is possible in high deserts areas with less than one quarter inch in the lower deserts.

Confidence is lower on when the more significant periods of precipitation will occur. While snow could fall as low as 4000 to 4500 feet at times, the more significant snowfall will be mostly above 5500 feet.

High temperatures will be well below average for Sunday through Thursday with Monday through Wednesday the coolest days with high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average except towards the coast.

AVIATION. 021500Z . Coast/Valleys . Widespread low clouds with bases 1500-3500 ft MSL and tops 4000-4500 ft MSL filling the coastal basin and into mountain passes. Foothills between those levels obscured. SCT conditions expected for most areas by 18Z. Areas of BKN low clouds may linger along the coast today. Low clouds to move ashore after 02Z, especially KSAN/KCRQ, and after 05Z in KSNA. Clouds 1500-2000 feet MSL with tops 2500 feet expected to fill most of the coastal basin overnight into Friday.

Mountains/Deserts . Westerly winds with gusts 25-45 kt will continue over the mountains and into the adjacent desert slopes this morning, beginning to weaken around 20Z. Strongest winds will be through passes and on the desert slopes. Areas of LLWS and moderate up/downdrafts are likely over and east of the mtns. Low clouds in high desert adjacent to mountains this morning, otherwise mostly clear today and tonight.

MARINE. Tonight and Friday evening, periods of breezy northwest winds with gusts occasionally exceeding 20 kts are expected around San Clemente Island. An incoming cold front is expected to produce areas of showers starting as early as Sunday, with most widespread rain expected Monday/Tuesday.

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

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.
