Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 933 PM PST Sun Mar 3 2024

SYNOPSIS
Scattered showers and gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts will continue through tonight, tapering off into Monday. Drier and slightly warmer for Monday and Tuesday. A deep marine layer will bring night and morning low clouds and fog to portions of the coastal basin through mid-week. Another round of precipitation is possible Wednesday into Thursday. More significant warming expected for Friday and Saturday.

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

Evening Update
A nearly completely saturated air mass is found near the lower level of our atmosphere per our latest weather balloon observations earlier this afternoon near San Diego. Residual sprinkles and showers continue this evening along and west of the mountains, primarily across San Diego County. The large trough will make a slow exit as we get into tomorrow, so shower activity may continue for the morning commute near San Diego. Skies will clear gradually west of the mountains from north to south. Looking a bit warmer and brighter by Monday with highs in the 70s for the lower deserts and near 60 across the high desert.

Winds will continue to be gusty along portions of the desert slopes overnight, but weaken to allow all wind alerts to expire.
Breezy conditions will continue into Monday for the mountains and deserts with gusts 25-45 MPH.

We will continue to watch for the next system, which has the chance to bring more precipitation later on Wednesday into at least Thursday.

.Previous Discussion (149 PM Sunday)....
A passing shortwave will allow for periods of light showers and gusty winds to continue into early Monday. Westerly winds will remain gusty into tonight. Peak wind gusts will be 40 to 60 mph, with the stronger gusts expected on desert mountain slopes and below the San Gorgonio Pass. Showers and winds are expected to gradually diminish tonight into Monday morning.

A brief period of warming is expected for Monday and Tuesday, before another weather system brings cooler conditions for the middle of the week. After that system passes, more significant warming is expected for Friday and Saturday as a weak ridge briefly builds over California. By Saturday high temperatures are expected to be back near their seasonal normal.

The next chance of precipitation arrives Wednesday and Thursday as yet another closed low drops southeast and heads towards SoCal. As we've experienced already this winter, closed lows tend to be tricky to forecast so some uncertainty remains in the details.
There is growing confidence the bulk of the precipitation will arrive sometime Wednesday into Thursday. Given our experience with closed lows so far this year, if there are changes to the timing of the system in the coming days it will likely be a delay in the onset of the precipitation. There remains uncertainty with precipitation amounts as well. Between the global models 99% of the members are showing at least some measurable precipitation over and west of the mountains, but there is a range of possible amounts. This tells us there are very high chances that most places away from the deserts will see measurable rainfall, but the jury is still out on just how much. Model guidance is not showing an influx of IVT (Integrated Water Vapor Transport, most commonly associated with Atmospheric Rivers) with this system, which could be a limiting factor for precipitation amounts. If models continue to show an absence of IVT, there likely won't be a sufficient moisture source for widespread significant rainfall accumulations. The ultimate track of the low will be a determining factor in what the snow levels end up being, current forecast has them in the 5000-6000 ft range. Breezy west winds are expected each day in the mountains and deserts.

Stay tuned in the coming days, we'll be sharing more details as they become clearer.
