Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 929 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure across the region will warm things up across the region through Monday. Night and morning low clouds and fog will occur west of the mountains, staying closer to the coast the next few mornings. An area of low pressure off the coast will begin to impact the region by Tuesday into the end of next week, leading to cooler, breezier and potentially wetter weather.

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

Low clouds have returned to the San Diego County coastal areas this evening. The 00Z KNKX sounding shows the marine inversion base near 1,800 ft MSL, down significantly from the near 3,000 ft this morning. Low clouds will extend into the western valleys overnight, but elsewhere skies will remain mostly clear. Breezy winds through the mountain passes and locally into the deserts will diminish overnight.

The upper level ridge axis is currently near the Central California coast and will progress eastward into Sunday. This will bring a continued warming trend with the marine layer becoming more shallow. Highs on Sunday will reach the upper 80s to around 90 in the inland valleys and high deserts, and upper 90s to around 100 in the low deserts. This could be the first 100 degree day at Palm Springs so far this year, though they were close with a high of 98 degrees twice already this month. The upper ridge is pushed further east on Tuesday in response to an upper level trough beginning to amplify over the East Pac. Stronger onshore flow will help spread cooling inland on Monday, most notably for the mountains westward, while the deserts only cool by a degree or two.

The trough begins to split with a closed low eventually forming in the base of the trough sometime late Monday into Tuesday while gradually progressing eastward, bringing continued cooling and gusty southwest to west winds in the mountains and deserts.
Ensembles really begin to diverge in the evolution of this low as we head into the latter half of the week, with the GEFS and it's deterministic counterpart on the much faster end of the guidance, bringing the main trough axis through by Wednesday evening or so, while the EPS and Canadian Ens don't bring it through until Thursday morning. Either way, this will continue the cooling trend, but the timing will have implications on the potential for any (very light) precipitation. Right now the moisture with this first wave is somewhat limited and the trough is so amplified that the vort max actually passes to our south. Ensembles are all showing only trace amounts of precipitation, so this could well be a marine layer drizzle situation. Winds will continue to strengthen, but not substantially so with the weaker flow aloft as the core of the low moves overhead.

The first trough quickly kicks out by late Thursday with cyclonic flow and cool weather remaining into Friday. Another more potent trough drops down from the northwest by the weekend, continuing cool and breezy weather. This second wave is forecast to have deeper moisture associated with it for a better (20-30%) chance of precipitation sometime Friday into Saturday, though slight (15%)
chances may begin as early as Thursday evening. Enjoy the couple days of warm weather we have now, because highs will be back to around 5 to as much as 15 degrees below normal for Wednesday through Saturday.



AVIATION
210335Z
Coast/Valleys
Low clouds moving into coastal San Diego County at this hour, with bases around 1500 ft MSL and tops around 1900 ft MSL. Low clouds will spread 15-20 miles inland by 15Z. Bases will lower overnight and could go below 1000 ft MSL in some areas between 10Z and 16Z. CIG and VIS impacts expected at coastal TAF sites but about a 30 percent chance at KONT after 11Z and less than 10 percent chance at KSBD. Expect clearing to the coast 17Z-19Z with clouds persisting at the beaches into Sun afternoon.

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