Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 950 AM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. A trough of low pressure over the region will weaken today into the weekend bringing less windy and some warmer weather to region. Inland areas will get closer to average as a high pressure system nudges its way west. This will also bring less cloud coverage for the valleys each night and morning with patchy fog at times. A trough over the West Coast will impact the region by Wednesday into Thursday, bringing more cooler weather and a deeper marine layer.

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

SHORT TERM. (Today through Monday) . Clouds scattering out nicely this morning should lead to another lovely sunny SoCal day out there with temperatures a touch below normal and light breezes in the afternoon and evening. A weakening upper level trough will continue to weaken into the weekend with temperatures warming a few degrees each day through Sunday and less inland extent of low clouds each night and early morning. An area of high pressure over Texas will slowly move west Sunday night into Monday, which will bring temperatures near normal by the start of the work week.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Friday) . The ridge of high pressure will try to nudge its way further into our area by Tuesday and Wednesday. Warmer weather and a shallower marine layer will continue. Temperatures of 110 degrees in the lower deserts, with mid 90s for the Inland Empire and low to mid 80s for the coastal valleys can be expected. Ensembles continue to bring in a troughing pattern over the West Coast late Wednesday through at least Friday. This will bring a deeper marine layer with some slight cooling, though not very noticeable for most areas. This also means it looks increasing likely we will not be seeing any monsoonal moisture through next week.

AVIATION. 071600Z . Coast/Valleys . Most of the low clouds have cleared, and skies will be mostly clear with unrestricted vis through early this evening. Stratus will develop again near the coast between 03Z and 07Z Sat, though timing of cigs at coastal airports is uncertain. Bases will be 900-1300 ft MSL with tops to 1500 ft MSL, with some higher terrain obscured. Local vis 1-3 miles in fog will occur in valleys 08Z-15Z Sat. Clearing should be a little slower Saturday, mostly 16Z-18Z.

Mountains/Deserts . Smoke from the Apple Fire will intermittently obscure portions of the eastern San Bernardino mountains into the Joshua Tree area. Otherwise, clear skies with unrestricted vis through Sat morning.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through Tuesday.

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

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

PUBLIC . APR AVIATION/MARINE . Maxwell

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.
