Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 152 PM PST Fri Jan 24 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure aloft near the West Coast will continue warm and dry weather through Saturday with a coastal eddy bringing an increase in coastal low clouds and fog into Sunday. A trough of low pressure moving inland along the West Coast will bring cooling on Sunday with gusty winds in the mountains and deserts. Subtropical high pressure will expand into California early next week with high temperatures warming to near average. High pressure will strengthen late in the week bringing greater warming on Thursday and Friday, with breezy offshore winds possible mid-next week for inland areas.

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

At 1 PM, visible satellite imagery displayed low clouds and fog over the coastal waters and portions of immediate coast. Surface observations showed visibility of 1/2 mile for some beaches where low clouds lingered this afternoon. Dense fog is possible along the coast again tonight, however high-resolution models have low confidence on it being widespread at this time. Upper-level ridging to our east will continue above normal high temperatures across the region through Saturday, with most areas about 5 degrees above seasonal normals. The higher upper-level heights will also maintain a shallow marine layer, with low clouds developing over the coastal waters and along the immediate coast at night into Sunday.

Cooler weather will arrive Sunday as an upper-level trough swings by to the north. This will create a deeper marine layer with low clouds developing further inland Sunday morning, near normal highs along the coast to just above normal highs in the mountains and deserts, and westerly wind gusts of 25-35 mph across the mountains and deserts. Winds will quickly shift offshore after the trough passage, with northerly wind gusts of 25-35 mph expected along coastal mountain slopes of the San Bernardino County Mountains Monday morning.

Model ensemble solutions are in good agreement with a subtropical high pressure over the Eastern Pacific extending into California early to mid-next week, then strengthening Thursday and Friday. This will create a warming trend throughout the week, with high temperatures 5 to locally 10 degrees above normal by Thursday and little to no marine layer clouds. Offshore winds will continue for inland areas most of next week, with possibly gusty winds along coastal mountain slopes, through passes and into adjacent valleys Wednesday and Thursday. North to northeasterly wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph are expected at this time, with afternoon relative humidity between 20-30 percent for inland areas.

AVIATION. 242045Z . Coast . Patchy low clouds and fog are sticking around the immediate coast at this hour, and will likely continue throughout the afternoon. Otherwise, SCT-BKN high clouds at/above 20,000 ft MSL through this afternoon. More widespread low clouds and fog should return after 02Z, with bases of 300-800 ft MSL, spreading up to 5 miles inland overnight. Visibility will be reduced down to 2-4 miles, with lower visibility possible on higher coastal terrain. Low clouds and fog will scatter out by 17Z Saturday.

Valleys/Mountains/Deserts . SCT-BKN high clouds at/above 20,000 feet through Saturday.

MARINE. A long-period WNW swell will generate locally high seas on Saturday over extreme southern portions of the outer waters, south of San Clemente Island. Seas will peak between 7 and 10 feet, with peaks of 5 to 7 feet over the remainder of the coastal waters.

Tranquil conditions Sunday and Monday. Slight increase in NW winds late Tuesday, though at this time peak gusts appear to stay at or below 20 kts.

BEACHES. Medium (13 second) period WNW swell today will be replaced by a longer (16-18 second) swell from the same direction (~285 degrees) on Saturday. This will result in a transition from elevated surf Friday to high surf conditions on Saturday, most widespread in San Diego County. Surf of 5-7 ft is likely in Orange County, with 5-8 ft in San Diego County. A High Surf Advisory is in effect for all area beaches Friday night through Sunday afternoon, when high surf conditions should recede.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 6 PM PST Sunday for Orange County Coastal Areas-San Diego County Coastal Areas.

PZ . NONE.

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.
