Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 855 AM PDT Tue Apr 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. A low pressure system southwest of Point Conception will move slowly toward the southeast and east, finally moving eastward and out of the area on Saturday. Periods of showers will continue into Friday with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and again Wednesday afternoon. Saturday through Monday will be mostly dry and a little warmer.

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

Showers continue to move north-northeast across the area this morning with the most widespread activity just off the San Diego County coast. The morning sounding from KNKX shows precipitable water of 0.84 inch, down only slightly from the 0.90 inch yesterday afternoon. Weak instability developing this afternoon will be sufficient for locally heavy showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Showers should decrease in coverage and intensity tonight as instability decreases. All models are showing a somewhat narrow band of precipitation wrapping around the east and north sides of the low. Depending on where this sets up there could be moderate rain over the deserts tonight into Wednesday morning, though at this point it looks like it will remain east and north of our forecast area.

The upper level low finally moves over the area on Wednesday. The colder air near the center of the storm will bring snow levels down to 4500-5000 ft. Greater instability is expected, especially during the afternoon, increasing the threat of thunderstorms and isolated heavy showers. Moisture decreases significantly which will help limit rainfall amounts.

This low pressure system will remain centered over the southwestern states for Thursday and Friday before weakening and moving off to the east on Saturday. Periods of showers will continue on Thursday and decrease on Friday.

The lowest high temperatures are expected on Wednesday and Thursday with high temperatures for some inland areas 20 to 25 degrees below average. There will be a warming trend for Friday through Monday but with high temperatures remaining below average.

AVIATION. 071530Z . Coast/Valleys/Mountains . Occasional -SHRA will continue today and tonight with variable cigs 1000-3500 feet MSL, occasional vis 1-4SM with higher terrain obscured at times. Lowest cigs/vis during SHRA or +RA, as well as during isolated brief TSRA during the afternoon. -SHSN will occur in the mountains mainly above 5500 feet MSL. The rainy and snowy pattern will continue into tomorrow.

Deserts . BKN skies around 5000-1000 FT MSL with areas of -SHRA at times. Best chances this afternoon and tonight where some ceilings could fall to below 4000 feet MSL, and local vis could fall to 3- 5SM.

MARINE. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms, mainly during this afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. Otherwise, no hazardous marine weather is expected through Saturday.

BEACHES. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms producing lightning strikes, mainly during this afternoon and Wednesday afternoon.

HYDROLOGY. Through Friday, additional rainfall is expected to range from around 1.5 inches near the coast to 2 to 4 inches in the mountains with 1 to 1.5 inches across the high deserts and one half to one inch in the lower deserts. There is also a slight chance of thunderstorms for this afternoon and Wednesday afternoon.

A snow level near 6000 to 6500 feet today, will lower to 4500 to 5000 feet for late tonight through Wednesday night, then rise to 5000 to 5500 feet Thursday. In the mountains of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, additional snowfall of 3 to 6 inches is expected from 4500 to 5500 feet, 6 to 12 inches from 5500 to 6500 feet, 12 to 24 inches from 6500 to 7500 feet, with greater than 24 inches on the highest peaks.

The potential for urban and small stream flooding will continue today and Wednesday along with the possibility of isolated flash flood flooding with thunderstorms or where showers track repeatedly across the same area. Low water crossings along the San Diego River in Fashion Valley will experience minor flooding through at least Wednesday as the river is forecast to remain above monitor stage.

SKYWARN. Skywarn activation may be requested this afternoon.

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday evening for Apple and Lucerne Valleys-Coachella Valley-Orange County Coastal Areas-Orange County Inland Areas-Riverside County Mountains- San Bernardino County Mountains-San Bernardino and Riverside County Valleys-The Inland Empire-San Diego County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Deserts-San Diego County Mountains-San Diego County Valleys-San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning-Santa Ana Mountains and Foothills.

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.
