Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 921 AM PDT Fri Apr 12 2024

SYNOPSIS
Today will be a little cooler than yesterday, and be followed by even greater cooling over the weekend as a trough moves across the region. This trough will bring gusty winds and light showers at times. Dry weather is forecast next week.

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

Update...
The 12z Miramar sounding showed an 8C degree inversion based near 1400-1500 feet. Low clouds extend through the coast and valleys, and a late morning surge is making its way into the Inland Empire.
Little progress has been made with clearing, but the valleys should clear through the rest of the morning. The coast will likely continue to see low cloud cover through most of the day, with only peeks of sunshine at times.

Temperatures at 9 AM were quite a bit colder than Thursday morning, with a departure up to 5 degrees cooler at the coast, mountains and deserts, and 8-20 degrees colder in the valleys.
Highs today will be a few degrees below normal across the coast and valleys, but up to 5 degrees above normal in the mountains and deserts. The cooling trend continues through this weekend.

Previous Discussion (Issued 400 AM PDT Fri Apr 12 2024)...
The marine layer was between 1,000 and 1,300 feet deep this morning, extending to near Chino and Corona in the western Inland Empire, and to Fallbrook, El Cajon and Ramona in the San Diego County valleys. The clouds layer was 500-800 ft thick. Clearing today will be similar to yesterday with the clouds retreating from the valleys through the morning but lingering near the coast into the afternoon. The mountains and deserts will be sunny today.

Water vapor imagery showed the center of a compact upper level circulation 600 miles west of Oregon this morning. This cold core low will dig south today, and by Saturday morning it will be just west of SFO. The first of two shortwaves with this trough will track over Ventura, LA Counties and San Bernardino Counties Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing a swath of mostly light precipiation to SoCal during that time. It will first move into the San Bernardino County Mountains and Orange County, then spread southeast through the afternoon and evening. Precipitation will be generally light but with a distinctive north-to-south rainfall gradient. The highest amounts will be in San Bernardino and Orange County with lighter amounts in southern San Diego County.

There will be a break in the precipitation Saturday night into Sunday morning before the second shortwave with a more southerly trajectory brings a more direct hit to SoCal Sunday afternoon through Sunday night. Like the first shortwave, this one also doesn't have a lot of moisture to work with and the precipitation amounts will be light. Total rainfall through Sunday night will range from a few hundredths of an inch to a quarter of an inch in the coastal and valley areas, from a tenth to a half inch in the mountains (highest in the San Bernardino Mountains), and less than 0.10" in the high desert.

Snow levels between 5500-6500 feet on Saturday will fall to 4500- 5500 feet Sunday with 2-4" in the San Bernardino Mountains above 6,500 feet.

It will be another cool weekend with gusty winds at times. Sunday will be the coldest day with highs in the low 60s west of the mountains, the 30s and 40s in the mountains, and the 50s in the high deserts. The lower deserts will see highs in the low to mid 70s with blustery winds and areas of blowing dust and sand at times.

The low moves eastward on Monday with cool, dry northwest flow through Wednesday keeping temperatures a little below average through midweek.
