Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 901 PM PST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. Moist southwest flow aloft will bring periods of light rain and high elevation snowfall this weekend. A dry northwest flow aloft will develop on Monday with the passage of a weak trough and developing high pressure aloft. Prevailing high pressure over the West through next weekend will will bring an extended period of fair, dry, and warmer weather. A large west swell will bring high surf this weekend.

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

Evening Update.

No forecast changes were necessary this evening. Scattered showers will continue through Sunday evening. The snow level remains very high this evening, around 8000 feet, but with the advance of some cooler air Sunday, snow levels will lower to around 6500 feet by Sunday evening, with a few inches of snow possible in the higher mountain elevations. A little more widespread coverage of rain will also be possible Sunday afternoon with the weakening upper level trough.

Remainder of the previous forecast discussion.

Radar and rain gages continued to show scattered light rain across SoCal. The most persistent rain has been on the coastal mtn slopes where upslope flow is aiding lift. Rain rates were light (under 1/10 inch/hr.) IR satellite imagery well out across the EastPac did not show any large, organized areas of enhancement in this moist stream of air aloft. POPS do remain high though, due to the near saturation aloft and the continued weak disturbances expected to traverse the area over the next 24-36 hours. Rainfall totals are posted and headlined on our website.

The sfc pressure gradients (KSAN to the deserts) was trending weakly onshore. There were some areas near the mts/high deserts with sustained winds of 20 MPH or more but most areas had much lighter wind. Southwest winds may strengthen a bit more through Sunday, before turning more from the west later on Sunday. Peak gusts of 40 to 50 MPH are possible on the mtn ridges and desert slopes.

The moist, Pacific flow currently in place over SoCal will continue into tonight before getting squeezed to the south on Sunday by a trough that will drop south across the State. Periods of light rain and high snow levels will prevail this period, with the greatest rain amounts on the coastal slopes where weak upslope flow will enhance lift.

On Sunday, the approaching trough from the north should organize another period of precip over our northern areas, while upslope flow prevails over the Riverside and San Diego County Mountains, helping to enhance amounts of rainfall there. PVA with the approaching trough will be muted due to the highly positive tilt at which it will move over SoCal. Still, the cold air aloft and increased sfc convergence should spark a round of more organized pcpn beginning Sunday afternoon over northern portions of the CWA. The snow level will begin to drop over these areas and bottom near 6000 FT Monday morning. Snow could begin to accumulate above 7K FT late Sunday as the bulk of the precip winds down. This could result in a few inches of snowfall near and above 7500 FT late Sun/Sun night.

Meanwhile, most of the significant rainfall accumulation will be on the coastal slopes of the mountains (1-2"), while lesser amounts accumulate at lower elevations (0.5" or less). These are total amounts spread out over 48 hours, so runoff will be very limited, reducing any significant flood risk.

Looking ahead to next week . Models show a highly amplified ridge along the West Coast on Tuesday, behind the trough, which gets flattened by weak shortwaves next week, but maintains over SoCal, supporting fair, dry, and warmer weather through the week. toward the end of the week, temperatures could be some 5-10 degrees above average.

AVIATION.

080500Z . Coasts/Valleys . BKN-OVC cigs will continue through Sun evening, with bases mostly 2500-4000 ft MSL but locally 800-1500 ft MSL at times. Periods of -RA will occur, with greatest coverage 15Z- 21Z Sun. Areas of vis 2-5 miles in =RA/BR will occur at times through Sun evening.

Mountains . -RA will continue at times through Sun evening with some -SN above 7000 feet MSL Sunday and 6000 feet MSL Sunday evening. Widespread terrain obscurations in -RA/-SN/FG will occur. West winds with gusts to 35 kt over the mountains will bring weak-moderate up/downdrafts and LLWS over and east of the mtns after 12Z Sun.

Deserts . Isolated -RA will occur through Sun with BKN-OVC cigs 4000- 7000 ft MSL and some clearing Sun evening. Local vis 3-5 miles will be possible in -RA through Sun.

MARINE. Scattered rain showers at times through Sunday night. Combined seas of 6 to 8 ft are expected through Sunday evening.

BEACHES. A High Surf Advisory remains in effect through 4 AM Monday for long- period west to northwest swells of 14 to 18 seconds. Swells will peak Sunday morning, and subside by Monday morning. Surf of 5-8 ft will continue in San Diego County with 4-7 ft surf on beaches prone to WNW swells in Orange County.

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory until 4 AM PST Monday for Orange County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Coastal Areas.

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.
