Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 944 PM PDT Sun Mar 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry conditions are forecast throughout the week with warming temperatures through mid week before turning cooler next weekend.

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

No changes were necessary to the forecast this evening. Light showers have pretty much come to an end around the area as the weak trough moves into the Four Corners region.

Previous Discussion (issued at 130 PM PDT):

Highlights .

* Scattered showers focused San Bernardinos this evening * Trace-2" of snow above 6000 feet * Otherwise, a dry week with warming temperatures through mid week

A weak shortwave over the central California coast will move across SoCal this evening. Hi-res models are insistent on some shower activity developing, mainly over the San Bernardino County mountains. This will be of low impact with only light precip amounts expected with max of 0.30" along the coastal slopes. Snowfall of a trace-2" is forecast above 6000 feet. West winds with gusts to around 30 mph are forecast from the ridge tops to parts of the deserts.

The trough will exit the region overnight starting a dry period which will likely last through the week. Temperatures will warm through mid week before cooling next weekend. Peak temps are forecast to occur Tuesday and Wednesday with 70s widespread, except 80s in the lower deserts and 60s in the mountains and near the coast.

Global models have trended to show a trough pattern re-establishing this weekend and into the 2nd week of April. This would result in cooler temps along with a return of precipitation chances, especially on or after April 7th. In the meantime, dry and tranquil weather will prevail.

AVIATION. 300345Z . Coast/Valleys/Mountains . Isolated -SHRA/-SHSN mainly in the San Gabriel/San Bernardino Mountains will end by 07Z Mon. SCT- BKN clouds with bases 2000-3000 ft MSL with some higher bases 4000- 5000 ft MSL in the mountains will continue tonight then become mostly SCT by early Mon. Higher terrain will be locally obscured tonight, but most vis beneath the clouds will remain 6+ miles.

Deserts . Mostly clear with unrestricted vis through Mon evening.

MARINE. A few gusts of over 20 knots will continue overnight from the northwest, mainly in the outer coastal waters. No hazardous marine weather is expected Monday through Friday.

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

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