Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 150 PM PDT Sat Jun 22 2024

SYNOPSIS
Hot conditions expected for inland areas this weekend, with heat continuing into next week for the deserts. A moisture surge tonight and Sunday will increase the humidity and bring a slight chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms to most areas. The best chances of measurable rainfall and thunderstorm development is in the mountains Sunday afternoon.

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

Widespread moderate to major heat risk continues away from the the coast this weekend. Please be mindful if venturing outdoors for recreation this weekend. Drink plenty of fluids and if possible avoid strenuous outdoor activity between 10 am and 5 pm, or take frequent breaks. A surge of moisture Sunday will knock temperatures down a few degrees for inland areas and disrupt the marine layer resulting in a couple degrees of warming along the coast. The increase in humidity will make it harder to keep cool, even if the official readings are a few degrees below today.

The moisture increase will also bring chances of showers and isolated thunderstorms late tonight into Sunday. Models are showing our forecast area being on the western edge of the action.
As a result shower and thunderstorm chances have trended down for overnight tonight into early Sunday morning hours, with thunderstorm chances around 5 percent. That being said, the influx of moisture is still expected to increase precipitable water values to around 1.50" in the lower deserts, 1.25" west of the mountains and 1" in the mountains Sunday. A weak shortwave coupled with the heat of the day will generate mid-level lapse rates of 7.7C/km Sunday afternoon and raise CAPE values to 500-600 J/kg.
Chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms are highest in the mountains Sunday afternoon with a 30-35 percent chance of showers and a 10-15 percent chance of thunderstorms. West of the mountains, chances of showers will be 15-20 percent with isolated thunderstorm chances 5 percent or less. In the deserts shower chances are closer to 20-25 percent with a 5-10 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms. Best chances of accumulating precipitation will be in the mountains, with little to no precipitation expected to accumulate elsewhere. Enough moisture is expected to remain in the atmosphere for isolated convection to again be possible Monday afternoon, mainly over the San Bernardino Mountains and High Deserts.

As the ridge remains over the Four Corners region, hot conditions will continue through mid-week, especially in the deserts.
Temperatures in and west of the mountains will cool a few degrees each day through mid-week, brining highs near to just below the seasonal average. Coastal areas will keep a shallow marine layer, which will moderate temperatures there. On Thursday, a trough of low pressure moving into the Pacific Northwest will weaken the ridge bringing a few additional degrees of cooling from the coast to the deserts.

AVIATION
221950Z
Coast/Valleys
Low clouds with bases near 1000 feet MSL and tops near 1400 feet over the coastal waters today. After 23/0200Z this evening low clouds increasing in coverage with bases around 1000 ft MSL and tops to 1400 ft MSL. Inland spread will be restricted to the coastal areas and the western portions of the San Diego County valleys. Bases could briefly drop below 1000 ft MSL 12Z-15Z. Local VIS 1-3SM on elevated coastal terrain.

Low clouds could be erratic as monsoon moisture spreads over the area overnight and even into Monday, so confidence in the timing and low cloud amounts in the TAFs late tonight is low-moderate and likely an even trickier CIG forecast Sunday night into Monday.

Tropical moisture is expected to arrive tonight through Sunday morning. The moisture is enough with a weak disturbance to bring a threat for widely scattered lightning and brief showers Saturday night through Sunday.

Mountains/Deserts...Clear with unrestricted VIS then Tropical moisture is expected to arrive Saturday night through Sunday morning. Moisture is enough with a weak disturbance to bring a threat for widely scattered lightning and brief showers Saturday night through Sunday.
