Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 915 AM PDT Tue May 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure over the area will continue to strengthen today, keeping temperatures well above average for the deserts and inland areas. A cooling trend will start Friday west of the mountains, with high temperatures dropping back down to near seasonal normals. Cooling will be slower in the deserts with temperatures expected to remain above normal through Saturday. The marine layer and weak onshore flow will keep coastal areas cooler with night and morning low clouds and fog expected. The marine layer will deepen and onshore flow will strengthen, spreading low clouds farther inland over the weekend into early next week.

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

Satellite imagery from 9 AM today showed a coastal eddy circulating over the coastal waters and low clouds retreating out of the valleys and towards the coast. Generally, visibility this morning was reduced to 3 to 5 miles in the western valleys and on coastal mesas. An eleven degree inversion was recorded on the morning sounding. This strong marine inversion will make clearing slow along the coast, with only partial clearing likely at the beaches. The marine layer will be a little shallower tonight into Wednesday morning, with low clouds and fog staying more confined to coastal locations.

High pressure will continue to strengthen over Southern California today. Temperatures in the deserts will reach their peak Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the High Desert reaching 100-105, and 108- 112 in the low desert. An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect through Friday evening for the deserts. As the high pressure system begins to move east on Friday temperatures will begin to slowly decrease. Temperatures in the deserts will fall to seasonal normals by Sunday.

West of the mountains, the marine layer will keep temperatures near the coast in the 70s, with temperatures in the mid-80s to mid-90s inland. The Inland Empire will see the warmest conditions, with temperatures locally reaching 15 degrees above normal. Highs in the IE are expected to reach the upper 90s. These warm conditions are expected through Thursday, before a cooling trend begins Friday through the weekend.

An upper level low will move into northern and central California late Friday, which will strengthen onshore flow and deepen the marine layer across Southern California. While there are still some differences in the details, global ensembles keep a weak trough along the California coast through early next week. This will keep temperatures around seasonal normals and spread low clouds and fog into the western valleys.

AVIATION. 261600Z . Coast/Western Valleys . Stratus is quickly scattering, with skies clearing by 18Z. Skies could remain BKN into the afternoon for some beach locations. Low clouds will begin to move into the coastal areas this evening after 04Z with bases near 500- 700 feet MSL and lower vis of 3-5SM expected at the coastal terminals.

Inland Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . Mostly clear with unrestricted vis today and tonight.

MARINE. Patchy dense fog will impact the coastal waters through Thursday. Otherwise, no hazardous marine weather is expected through Saturday.

BEACHES. Southerly swell arrives Friday, peaks Saturday and gradually lowers Sunday. This will generate elevated surf of 3 to 5 feet with locally higher sets of 6 to 7 feet, along with a high risk of strong rip and longshore currents beginning late Friday.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Excessive Heat Warning until 7 PM PDT Friday for Apple and Lucerne Valleys-Coachella Valley-San Diego County Deserts- San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning.

PZ . NONE.

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.
