Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 914 AM PDT Tue Jun 25 2024

SYNOPSIS
High temperatures will be cooler today for the coast and valleys followed by more gradual cooling through Friday. Otherwise not much change in high temperatures for the next week except for Friday being slightly cooler. High temperatures near the coast will be a few degrees above average to around 5 to 10 degrees above average for the deserts. Moisture will be slowly drying for the rest of the week, but there may still be enough residual moisture for a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon for the San Bernardino Mountains north and northeastward across the adjacent deserts. Night and morning coastal low clouds may gradually return during the week.

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

Morning Update
High pressure remains centered over the southwestern U.S., which will lead to another day of southerly flow aloft over our region.
Mid and high level clouds are mostly surrounding our region this morning from the San Joaquin valley out toward southern Arizona.
There is still plenty of moisture in place, with near 1.70" of precipitable water via this morning`s weather balloon sounding.
This, along with the position of the high, will allow for one more day with a notable chance of thunderstorms for the SBD mountains into the high desert this afternoon and early evening.
As stated below, we will be on the edge of the action today, though hi-res models do indicate a convergence boundary setting up across those aforementioned locations leading to isolated storm chances.

Otherwise, elsewhere looks relatively quiet and warm this week with minimal day to day changes. The high will weaken slightly this week, allowing the marine layer to deepen with night and morning low clouds/fog west of the mountains.

.Previous Discussion (530 AM Tuesday)...

.SHORT TERM (Today through Thursday)...
There will be a gradual cooling trend for the coast and valleys through Friday with high temperatures falling to around average.
For the deserts, only very slight cooling of high temperatures is expected with greater cooling of low temperatures for Wednesday through Saturday as gradual drying occurs.

Moisture is continuing to dry with a decrease in precipitable water in the NKX sounding from 1.68 inch on early Monday morning to 1.53 inch late Monday afternoon. There is once again a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms for this afternoon with the most likely location similar to Monday afternoon and early evening, over the San Bernardino Mountains and toward the north and northeast along a convergence boundary across the adjacent desert areas.

With the moisture aloft, low clouds have once again been slow to develop. However there are some areas of low clouds near the coast of northern Baja with a few patches of low clouds off the San Diego County coast. Coastal low clouds are expected to gradually return over the next few nights as drying aloft continues.

.LONG TERM (Friday through Monday)...
The gradual drying will continue into the weekend with NBM showing the lowest surface dewpoints for the lower deserts this weekend.
While high temperatures for the deserts aren`t expected to change much, the gradual cooling of very warm nights will slowly reduce the daily Heat Risk, perhaps just enough to let the Excessive Heat Warnings for the deserts expire after Thursday. In any event, the relief from the heat for the deserts for Friday through the weekend won`t be much. After warming on Sunday, there is growing spread in the temperature guidance for the early and middle part of next week for inland areas with the deterministic NBM toward the warmer end of the guidance spectrum.
