Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 828 AM PST Tue Jan 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. Clouds will break later today, allowing limited sun along and west of the mountains this afternoon, with a few isolated showers still possible. After a mostly cloudy night with patchy fog west of the mountains, skies will become fair on Wednesday, and a warming trend will begin with daytime temperatures climbing back above average Thursday through Saturday. By Sunday, another weak Pacific system will approach with increasing clouds, cooling, and a chance for light showers Sunday night or Monday.

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

Rainfall was measured over all of San Diego County last night, tapering to the north, with none recorded over the high desert and very spotty amounts over SW San Bernardino County. A rainfall summary has been posted and headlined on our webpage. Radar still has a few echoes as of 8 AM PST, but the widespread rain has ended. The forecast was updated for more clouds and a slight chance for showers continuing, mainly near and along the coastal slopes of the Riverside and San Diego County mountains.

Satellite imagery shows widespread low clouds persist along and west of the mountains, and extend over the CA Bight. Another area of high clouds is drifting SE toward the CWA, which is associated with a weak trough. The 12Z Miramar sounding had a weak inversion based near 6K FT with near saturation up through 14K FT with a PW over just over one inch. Much of that high level moisture has likely thinned, but not the lower levels, which will remain high through tonight. Due to the high RH and the approaching weak trough, some spotty showers will be possible through the day, but mainly along the coastal slopes.

After we get this next weak trough embedded in the NW flow aloft past us, a ridge will begin to build over the SW, along with some weak offshore flow at times. This will set us up for a string of fair, dry, and warmer days into the weekend. After Saturday, another weak Pacific trough will approach with some cooling on Sunday, and a chance for more light showers Sunday night into Monday.

After Monday through much of next week, the pattern returns to fair and mild, with the majority of both the GFS/ECMWF ensemble members coming up dry.

AVIATION. 211630Z . Widespread low clouds with bases around 2500 ft MSL cover most of the region west of the mtns. Patches of clouds with bases around 600 ft MSL could impact TAF sites at times. Fog and drizzle could reduce vis to 3-5 miles at times with higher terrain obscured in clouds and fog. Partial clearing of low clouds 18-22Z from coast toward valleys and lastly along mountain slopes. Areas of low clouds redevelop after 02Z 1500-2000 feet MSL with random coverage across the coastal basin.

MARINE. No hazardous marine conditions are expected through Saturday.

Beaches. Swell and surf will build late today through Wednesday, generating surf of 4-6 feet along portions of southern San Diego County on Wednesday. The higher sets, along with a long swell period, will create strong rip currents and hazardous swimming conditions.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . NONE.

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.
