Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 130 PM PDT Sat Mar 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Fair weather will prevail through tonight. A weak trough will move across the region on Sunday, bringing some drizzle near the coast and scattered showers to mainly the mountains Sunday afternoon through Monday morning. Dry weather will return on Monday with a warming trend continuing next week.

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

Highlights.

* Drizzle possible near the coast Sunday morning * Scattered showers; Focus over mountains Sunday afternoon-night * Rain amounts up to ~0.25"; 1-2 inches of snow above 6000 feet * Dry & turning much warmer next week: 90s lower deserts Fri-Sat

Tranquil and cool conditions will prevail through the rest of the afternoon and tonight under patchy low clouds near the coast and high cirrus cloudiness streaming overhead from the west. So temps won't be as cold as last night.

On Sunday, another trough from the north will impact the region but this will be weak. Patchy drizzle could develop near the coast especially Sunday morning before we see scattered showers developing Sunday afternoon-night with the focus over the mountains, especially the coastal slopes. Light rain and snow accumulations are forecast with max rainfall of about 0.25" along the coastal slopes of the San Bernardino and Riverside County mountains. Snowfall of 1-2 inches is forecast above 6000 feet.

The weak trough will exit the region on Monday with dry weather returning and this will start a dry and much warmer week for the first week of April! A ridge will build over the west and so by mid to late next week, we anticipate seeing some 80s over the inland valleys and are even forecasting lower 90s for the Coachella Valley and SD Deserts by next Friday and Saturday. A big change from recent! Global ensembles shows dry and warm weather lasting through at least April 7th. Thereafter, we will have to watch what happens to a Pacific storm system, which global models indicate could bring additional precipitation to California sometime during the 2nd week of April.

AVIATION. 281915Z . Coast/Valleys . SCT clouds with bases 3000-3500 ft MSL this afternoon, becoming SCT-BKN after 07Z Sunday with bases 2500- 3000 ft MSL. Otherwise, SCT clouds at/above 20,000 ft MSL with unrestricted vis through tonight.

Mountains/Deserts . High clouds at/above 20,000 ft MSL with unrestricted vis through tonight.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through Sunday morning. Northwest winds will increase Sunday afternoon and evening, with gusts up to 25 kts possible, producing hazardous conditions for small craft at times. Winds will weaken by Monday morning.

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
