Synopsis
High pressure aloft will bring hot weather to the valleys and
deserts today and tomorrow. A weak trough will bring cooling
Thursday and Friday along with a deeper marine layer. The weekend
will be dry with seasonal weather for late august.

Discussion For extreme southwestern california including orange...

san diego... Western riverside and southwestern san bernardino
counties...

visible satellite imagery early this morning showed a solid deck of
marine layer clouds blanketing coastal and valley sections of san
diego county. In contrast, orange county was mostly clear. The
marine layer shrunk 1,000 feet over the past 24 hours as high
pressure aloft built in from the east. The depth was around 1,000
feet this morning which resulted in areas of dense fog in some of
the san diego county inland valleys including escondido, fallbrook,
rancho bernardo and brown field. The marine layer is forecast to be
a little shallower tonight and the low clouds won't reach quite as
far inland Wednesday morning.

In addition to squashing the marine layer, the building high aloft
is also bringing the heat. Today will be a little warmer than
yesterday, and Wednesday will be the hottest day of the week, most
notable in the inland valley and the deserts. An excessive heat
warning is in effect for the deserts where highs will be 114 to 118
in the lower deserts and from 104 to 108 in the high deserts east of
apple valley.

Thursday and Friday will be a little cooler as a weak trough of low
pressure moves inland across california. It will slowly deepen the
marine layer with greater night and morning low cloud coverage.

Long range: the long range ensemble GEFS and eps runs have trended a
little drier with the monsoonal moisture surging into the southwest
Saturday through Tuesday. The synoptic pattern shows a flat, east-
west oriented upper ridge extending from central california to
northern texas suppressing most of the moisture south of the border.

Temperatures will be near seasonal averages through the period.

Aviation
201430z... Coast valleys... Low clouds with bases 500-1100 ft msl
impacting the san diego county coast and western valleys at this
hour. Only small patches of low clouds along the orange county
coast, likely not impacting ksna this morning. Low clouds will
scatter out of the valleys around 16z and along the coast around
17z. Low clouds moving back in after 06z Wednesday with bases 500-
1000 ft msl, mainly south of orange county.

Mountains deserts... Mostly clear with unrestricted vis through
Wednesday.

Marine
Northwest winds will briefly reach 20 kt near san clemente island
this afternoon and evening. Otherwise no hazardous marine conditions
expected through Saturday.

Skywarn
Skywarn activation will not be needed this week.

Sgx watches warnings advisories
