Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Diego CA 857 PM PDT Fri May 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure over Southern California will weaken and move east through Saturday as a low pressure system moves northeast into Northern California. This will result in stronger onshore flow and cooling, along with greater coverage of low clouds into the valleys. Another upper low will form off the coast of California early next week. Considerable uncertainty exists on placement of the low and how it will influence temperatures and low clouds.

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

. Update .

Conditions continue to cool across the area. The Excessive Heat Warning for the deserts has been allowed to expire. Winds aren't so high over the Mojave Desert with gusts of 30 mph or less at most locales, so the Wind Advisory was cancelled just a bit earlier from it's expiration in coordination with the LA office, who will do the same. No other changes were made to the forecast.

Some mid level instability was noted this afternoon with altocumulus present. The closed low off the central CA coast will move northeast with any tstorms expected to be well off to the north of our service area. This system will act to bring cooling for especially the lower deserts which have been very hot of late. Sub-100 degrees is forecast Saturday for the Coachella Valley and the SD deserts.

. Previous Discussion (Issued 138 PM PDT Fri May 29 2020) .

At 1 PM, low clouds were sticking around the coast and in portions of the western valleys. Further clearing of low clouds this afternoon will be minimal. Low clouds will push back inland this evening and cover the coastal basin overnight. Mid and high level clouds were streaming in from the southwest ahead of a low pressure system off the coast of California.

Onshore pressure gradients will tighten in the High Desert today as the low pressure system approaches. This will result in strong south/southwest winds off the San Bernardino Mountains and into the High Desert this afternoon and evening. Winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts to 45 mph are expected. Low relative humidity, gusty winds, hot weather and dry fuels in the High Desert will result in elevated fire weather conditions through this evening. A Wind Advisory is in effect through 9 PM this evening in the High Desert, mainly to highlight elevated fire weather conditions. Some gusty winds are possible again Saturday afternoon in the High Desert, but winds are not looking quite as strong as today.

High pressure will weaken and gradually push east through Saturday as a low pressure system moves northeast into Northern California, maintaining onshore flow and a deep marine layer. Cooling will continue for the valleys today, but desert areas will remain quite warm. The Excessive Heat Warning continues for the deserts through 7 PM this evening. The deserts will cool down on Saturday, with temperatures near to slightly above seasonal normals. Greater clearing of low clouds will occur Saturday morning, except along the immediate coast.

Deterministic and ensemble model solutions indicate slight warming Sunday and Monday, with an upper level low pressure system developing offshore. Although there will be slight warming, onshore flow will continue with a shallow marine layer over coastal areas due to the developing low. There is still significant uncertainty regarding the placement of this upper level low Tuesday through Thursday. The deterministic ECMWF and GFS both have the low parked offshore through Wednesday, but differs on the placement of the low. Ensemble solutions show quite a large spread in temperatures Tuesday through Thursday. The current forecast was populated with the NBM solution beyond Monday. This solution keeps temperatures near to slightly above normal for most areas.

AVIATION. 300400Z . Coast/Valleys . BKN-OVC stratus will prevail overnight with bases 1500-2000 ft MSL and tops to 5000 ft MSL with areas of higher terrain obscured. Most vis will remain above 5 miles below the clouds. Most areas will clear 16Z-19Z Sat with mostly VFR conditions prevailing Sat afternoon. Stratus will be more patchy Sat night with lower cigs and tops.

Mountains/Deserts . Variable high clouds above 15000 feet MSL will continue through Saturday evening with unrestricted vis except for local stratus/fog obscuring coastal slopes through 16Z Sat. Local west surface winds 25 knots with gusts to 40 knots will continue at times through Saturday evening from the mountain crests east into the deserts.

MARINE. No hazardous marine weather is expected through next Wednesday. Occasional wind gusts exceeding 20 knots will likely occur in the outer coastal waters during the late afternoons and evenings Sunday and Monday.

BEACHES. A long-period south swell will generate elevated surf and a high rip current risk this weekend, highest in Orange County where surf will be 4-6 feet on south-facing beaches. A Beach Hazards Statement is in effect for the Orange County beaches through Sunday.

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

SGX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Beach Hazards Statement through Sunday afternoon for Orange 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.
