Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 300 AM PST Fri Dec 13 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will bring warmer weather today. A trough moving through California this weekend will bring cooler weather along with gusty winds in the mountains and deserts, and also for the coastal waters. There will be a chance of light showers Saturday afternoon/night, except in the deserts. Offshore flow will bring gusty northeast winds Monday and Tuesday. The next chance of rain appears Wednesday and Thursday.

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

A chunk of low clouds extends from L.A. into OC this morning while some other coastal clouds simply lurk just off the coast. It might be a little murky in spots in OC this morning, but today should be mostly sunny across the region overall. High pressure peaks today and the warm air mass and abundant sunshine will make today the warmest in the coming week. Coastal clouds will make an early move ashore late this afternoon and evening. A trough of low pressure moving into the West Coast will tamp down the high pressure and prop up a pretty deep marine layer Saturday. It will be somewhat blustery and raw. Later in the day there will be some light showers in that enhanced marine layer, most likely in foothills where up to a quarter inch could add up Saturday afternoon through Saturday night. Coastal areas get a few hundredths. Winds will strengthen Saturday, with gusts along isolated mountain ridgetops and desert slopes that could top 60 mph, but most gusts will range between 35-55 mph. A dry cold front sweeps through the region early Sunday morning, decreasing the winds and sweeping out the clouds. The cooler post frontal air will make Sunday the coolest in the coming week. Offshore flow develops late Sunday and peaks Monday through Tuesday. Guidance keeps waffling on the strength and duration of these offshore winds, but some foothills should get gusts over 30 mph. The eastern Pacific is chaotic and the jet stream is not a solid driver of systems at this time. Most guidance including ensembles shows some attempt to bring in an overall wet pattern later next week, but the attempts of any individual systems to bring us meaningful rain are not convincing. Case in point, yesterday GFS was dry, Euro was wet. Today? GFS is wet, Euro is dry. We pulled out the broad brush to indicate some chances of the wet stuff late Wednesday into Thursday.

AVIATION. 131050Z . Coast . Some low clouds and fog will move into the immediate coast through 16Z, though confidence is still low that the clouds/fog will reach the KSAN, KCRQ and KSNA TAF sites. If cigs occur they will likely be 200-400 ft MSL with tops to 500 ft MSL, and vis will locally be below 1 mile in fog. KSAN, KCRQ and KSNA could have periods of 2-3 mile vis before 16Z. Mostly clear skies are expected after 16Z, with low clouds/fog likely returning after 06Z Sat, with higher bases.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . SCT clouds above 20000 ft MSL with unrestricted vis through tonight. Low clouds could arrive in some valley locations by late this evening.

MARINE. A large, west northwest swell with a period of 15-17 seconds will likely combine with a fresh swell with a period of 7-9 seconds to produce combined seas of 9 to 12 ft through Sunday. West northwest winds will increase over the outer coastal waters tonight through Saturday night. Winds will peak Saturday night into Sunday morning with gusts 25 to 30 knots, and locally to 35 knots near San Clemente Island. A gale watch has been issued 6 PM Sat to 10 AM Sun over the waters 30-60 NM offshore. The combination of the winds and swells will create hazardous boating conditions for mariners Saturday through Sunday.

BEACHES. A west northwest swell with a period of 15-17 seconds will bring elevated to high surf and strong rip currents to the beaches through Sunday, peaking late Friday/early Saturday. Current projections are for 5-8 foot surf with local sets to 9 feet along the San Diego County beaches with slightly lower values for the Orange County beaches. High tides over 6 feet along with the surf may cause local beach erosion.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory until 4 PM PST Sunday for Orange County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Coastal Areas.

PZ . Gale Watch from Saturday evening through Sunday morning for Waters from San Mateo point to the Mexican Border Extending 30 to 60 nm out including San Clemente Island.
