Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 854 PM PDT Sun Apr 21 2024

SYNOPSIS
Warm conditions will continue across Southern California today, with cooling spreading inland through the mountains on Monday, reaching the lower deserts by Tuesday. Patchy drizzle will be possible west of the mountains Tuesday morning. More noticeable cooling along with stronger onshore winds and scattered showers will be possible Thursday into next weekend.

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

Evening update
Marine layer stratus, which stuck to many of the beaches this afternoon, made a swift push inland this evening, filling in across Orange County and even pushing into the far southern portions of the Inland Empire. The 00Z KNKX sounding shows a 9C inversion based near 1700 ft MSL. Clouds will spread slightly further inland overnight. Elsewhere skies remain clear with sea breeze winds weakening through the evening. Forecast remains mostly unchanged through midweek, with ensembles becoming more aligned with regards to timing of the Wed/Thu trough. Made some adjustments to PoPs later in the week as the track of the second trough appears to take a more inland (drier) track and moves out quicker.

Previous discussion
The ridge axis weakens and moves eastward and Monday, and a strengthening closed upper low quickly moves into the eastern Pacific. The marine layer will deepen and cooler weather spreads inland, with highs on Monday 2-6 degrees cooler than today.
Further cooling is expected on Tuesday and Wednesday as the upper low approaches Southern California, and a coastal eddy spins up.
The marine layer may be deep enough to produce some patchy drizzle west of the mountains Tuesday morning, and clouds will be hard pressed to clear across the coast and western valleys that day. An uptick of winds will occur over the mountains and deserts Tuesday afternoon and evening, with a stronger push Wednesday into Thursday as the low passes overhead.

The forecast becomes murky for late this week into the weekend.
Ensemble cluster analysis shows a general troughing pattern covering much of the western United States on Thursday, but with substantial disagreement of the placement of the trough axis and strength by Friday. This system does look to bring moisture into Southern California however, with the ECMWF ensemble mean showing PWAT values near 0.9" for SAN and PWAT anomalies 125-175% of normal. We are moving toward our dry season, so most widespread measurable precipitation could be considered "anomalous", but this system bears watching. Regardless of the timing and intensity of rain over the region, it looks like we will be trending towards cooler weather and stronger onshore winds next weekend.

AVIATION
220355Z
Coast/Valleys
Low clouds with bases around 1000 ft MSL and tops to 2000 ft MSL have already spread 10-15 miles inland at this hour. Coastal TAF sites are experiencing CIG impacts and KSNA has reduced VIS. There is about a 50-60 percent chance for CIG and VIS impacts at KONT between 12Z and 15Z but impacts at KSBD are unlikely. VIS restrictions will occur mainly inland where clouds and terrain intersect. Bases and tops will rise slightly after 12Z.
Inland clearing is expected 17Z-19Z but there will likely be limited clearing in the coastal areas. SCT-BKN clouds could persist at coastal TAF sites into Monday afternoon.

Mountains/Deserts...Mostly clear skies with unrestricted VIS through Mon morning.

MARINE
No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Thursday.

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

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