Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 831 PM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. A trough of low pressure over the region will continue to weaken this weekend, bringing a slight warming trend. Temperatures in inland areas will get closer to normal as the trough weakens and high pressure builds in from the east. This will also bring less cloud cover for the valleys each night and morning, with patchy fog possible at times. Minor day to day changes in temperatures are expected for much of next week.

&

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

Evening update .

Low clouds have remained mostly offshore of San Diego County, but will move ashore later this evening. Clouds should cover most coastal areas overnight, possibly reaching into some western valleys by daybreak.

An overall quiet weather pattern is in store for the next week. A slight warming trend will occur this weekend as high pressure builds in from the east, with minor day to day changes in temperatures expected for the workweek. Still no indications of monsoon moisture over SoCal for the next week. No forecast changes were needed this evening.

Previous discussion issued at 143 PM .

SHORT TERM. (Today through Monday) . A weakening upper level trough will continue to weaken into the weekend with temperatures warming a few degrees each day through Sunday and less inland extent of low clouds each night and early morning. Surface pressure gradients tighten up a bit as an area of high pressure over Texas slowly moves west Sunday into Monday. This will bring some gusty southwest/west winds to portions of the mountains and deserts with gusts 25-35 MPH and closest to 45 MPH in wind-prone passes Sunday afternoon and evening. The expanding ridge will also bring temperatures near normal by the start of the work week with patchy fog nights and mornings from the coast into the valleys.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Friday) . The ridge of high pressure will try to nudge its way further into our area by Tuesday and Wednesday. Not much fluctuation in temperatures with a shallower marine layer will continue. Temperatures of 110 degrees in the lower deserts, with mid 90s for the Inland Empire and low to mid 80s for the coastal valleys can be expected. As the trough's axis goes over SoCal Wednesday, temperatures may be slightly cooler with some breezier winds. Ensembles continue to bring in this troughing pattern over the West Coast Wednesday through at least Friday. This will bring a slightly deeper marine layer with some slight cooling, though not very noticeable for most areas. This also means it looks increasing likely we will not be seeing any monsoonal moisture through next week.

AVIATION. 080300Z . Coast . Low clouds will move ashore this evening and gradually covering coastal areas overnight. Bases will be around 1000-1500 feet MSL with tops to 1800 feet, with some vis reduction and local terrain obscuration between those elevations. Clearing Saturday expected by 16Z-18Z. Low clouds redeveloping Saturday evening after 03Z, moving locally inland thereafter.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . Smoke from the Apple Fire will occasionally obscure portions of the eastern San Bernardino mountains into the Joshua Tree area. Otherwise, clear skies with unrestricted vis through Saturday.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through Wednesday.

BEACHES. A new south swell will bring higher surf and stronger rip currents to the beaches Monday and Tuesday. Surf of 3-5 feet is expected in Orange County, with some sets to 6 feet.

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

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

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.
