AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN DIEGO CA
325 AM PDT MON JUL 28 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE THE CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TODAY. 
RESIDUAL MOISTURE COULD BE SUFFICIENT FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF 
AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS 
FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. FOR THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK INTO NEXT 
WEEKEND...MORE DRYING IS EXPECTED TO FURTHER REDUCE CHANCES FOR ANY 
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE MOUNTAINS. TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR 
SEASONAL LEVELS THROUGH WEDNESDAY...THEN WARM TO A LITTLE ABOVE 
SEASONAL LEVELS FOR FRIDAY THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.
&&
.DISCUSSION...FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE...
SAN DIEGO...WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO
COUNTIES...
.SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY)...
MID AND UPPER LEVEL MONSOONAL MOISTURE REMAINS ENTRENCHED ACROSS 
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WITH ADDITIONAL LOWER LEVEL MOISTURE IN THE 
LOWER DESERTS PUSHING PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES TO AROUND 2 INCHES 
FOR THE LOWER DESERTS. THE PRECIPITATION FORECASTS FROM ALL OF 
THE MODELS HAVE BEEN EXCEPTIONALLY POOR THE PAST FEW DAYS AND 
GENERALLY POOR FOR MUCH OF THE SUMMER. THE CURRENT LOW CONFIDENCE 
FORECAST LEANS HEAVILY ON IDENTIFIABLE SYNOPTIC AND MESOSCALE 
FEATURES IN SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE CONVECTIVE COMPLEX OVER ARIZONA 
FROM LATE LAST NIGHT THAT PUSHED AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY WESTWARD ACROSS 
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA YESTERDAY MORNING INITIATING THUNDERSTORM 
DEVELOPMENT WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS AND OVER THE COASTAL WATERS ALSO 
GENERATED A MID LEVEL MESOSCALE CONVECTIVE VORTEX. THAT MID LEVEL 
CIRCULATION CENTER MOVED SLOWLY WESTWARD ACROSS THE SOUTHERN 
CALIFORNIA DESERTS YESTERDAY...HELPING THE GENERATE SHOWERS AND 
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS OVER SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY. THIS BAND OF 
CONVECTION ON THE WEST AND NORTHWEST SIDE OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER 
MOVED WESTWARD ACROSS WESTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY OVERNIGHT WITH 
SOME CONVECTION DEVELOPING SOUTHWARD INTO THE INLAND EMPIRE AND 
ORANGE COUNTY. THIS CIRCULATION IS CURRENTLY CENTERED OVER CENTRAL 
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY AND CONTINUING TO MOVE SLOWLY TOWARD THE 
NORTHWEST. IT SHOULD HAVE A LESSENING INFLUENCE ON FAR SOUTHERN 
CALIFORNIA TODAY. 
THE CYCLONIC CIRCULATION CENTER EVIDENT IN WATER VAPOR IMAGERY JUST 
OFF THE PACIFIC COAST OF CENTRAL BAJA 24 HOURS AGO HAS CONTINUED TO 
MOVE SLOWLY NORTHWARD AND IS NOW CENTERED ALONG THE PACIFIC COAST OF 
NORTHERN BAJA. THERE HAS BEEN LIMITED CLOUD DEVELOPMENT TO THE NORTH 
OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER OVERNIGHT SO FAR. IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN 
WHETHER IT WILL INITIATE CONVECTION THIS MORNING OVER FAR 
SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE SLOWLY NORTHWARD. 
SLIGHT CHANCE AND CHANCE POPS ARE BLANKED ACROSS MUCH FOR FAR 
SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING TO ACCOUNT FOR THAT 
POSSIBILITY. THE FORECAST FOR THIS AFTERNOON SHIFTS THE FOCUS FOR 
CONVECTION...SURFACE BASED CONVECTION...TO THE MOUNTAINS AND 
DESERTS. GIVEN THE HIGH PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES AND WEAKER MID 
LEVEL STEERING FLOW...ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT DO DEVELOP WOULD HAVE 
THE POSSIBILITY OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WITH THE 
POTENTIAL FOR FLASH FLOODING. 
THE NEW WRINKLE FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY IS THE POSSIBILTY FOR SOME 
MID AND HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE FROM WEAKENING TROPICAL CYCLONE HERNAN 
TO SPREAD INTO PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THIS COULD SLOW THE 
EXPECTED DRYING TREND SOMEWHAT...PERHAPS ENOUGH TO RETAIN A SLIGHT 
CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS NEAR MOUNTAINS. 
DEPENDING ON THE DEGREE AND PLACEMENT OF THIS MID AND HIGH LEVEL 
MOISTURE INFLUX FROM HERNAN...SOME ELEVATED CONVECTION CANNOT BE 
RULED OUT FOR TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY...BUT IS NOT CURRENTLY IN THE 
FORECAST GIVEN THE CURRENT LEVEL OF UNCERTAINTY. 
THE CONTINUING MID AND HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE SHOULD KEEP COVERAGE OF 
NIGHT AND MORNING COASTAL LOW CLOUDS AND FOG RATHER PATCHY. 
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN NEAR SEASONAL AVERAGES.
&&
.LONG TERM (THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY)...
MORE RECENT MODEL FORECASTS ARE NOT AS CLEAN WITH THE DRYING FOR THE 
LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK INTO NEXT WEEKEND WITH LOWER LEVEL MOISTURE 
NOT TOO FAR AWAY TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE CURRENT FORECAST REMAINS 
DRY...BUT WITH SOME CLOUDS OVER THE MOUNTAINS EACH AFTERNOON. 
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO RISE TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONAL. A 
SHALLOW MARINE LAYER AND WEAK ONSHORE FLOW WILL BRING AREAS OF NIGHT 
AND MORNING COASTAL LOW CLOUDS AND FOG EXTENDING LOCALLY INLAND.
