NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN DIEGO CA
134 PM PDT THU APR 24 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
MARINE LAYER CLOUDS AND FOG RETURN TO THE COASTAL AREAS
TONIGHT...SPREADING INLAND BY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING. A STRONG LOW
PRESSURE TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LATE FRIDAY
INTO SATURDAY...BRINGING SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH MUCH LOWER
TEMPERATURES AND SOME LIGHT SNOW IN THE HIGH MOUNTAINS. THE TROUGH
WILL ALSO PRODUCE GUSTY WEST WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS. A
RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE WEST WILL BRING MUCH
WARMER WEATHER NEXT WEEK. PERIODS OF OFFSHORE WINDS WILL BE
POSSIBLE AT TIMES DURING THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
&&
.DISCUSSION...FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE...
SAN DIEGO...WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO 
COUNTIES...
MOSTLY CLEAR THIS AFTERNOON...EXCEPT FOR A FEW HIGH CLOUDS.
LOW CLOUDS AND FOG WILL LIKELY RETURN TO THE COASTAL AREAS AND 
WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE INLAND VALLEYS TONIGHT INTO FRI MORNING...AS 
ONSHORE FLOW STRENGTHENS AND A COASTAL EDDY FORMS AHEAD OF A LOW 
PRESSURE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE NW. THE LOW CLOUDS AND FOG 
SHOULD BURN OFF BY LATE MORNING...BUT DAYTIME TEMPS WILL BE MOSTLY 
IN THE 60S TO LOW 70S WEST OF THE MTNS.
THE DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE TROUGH WILL MOVE THROUGH SOCAL BETWEEN 
FRI EVENING AND SAT MORNING. IT WILL BRING STRONG WINDS TO THE 
MOUNTAINS...DESERTS AND COASTAL WATERS FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND 
NIGHT...DECREASING SOMEWHAT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING. IN THE MTNS 
AND ON ADJACENT DESERT SLOPES...WIND GUSTS OF 45 TO 65 MPH ARE
LIKELY WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS OF 70 MPH OR GREATER IN THE MORE
WIND-PRONE AREAS. THE WINDS WILL BE STRONGEST FRI EVENING INTO FRI
NIGHT. BLOWING DUST AND SAND WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE DESERTS. THE
TROUGH WILL ALSO BRING SHOWERS...MOSTLY OVER AND WEST OF THE MTNS.
SHOWERS SHOULD BEGIN MOVING IN FROM THE NW FRI EVENING AND
CONTINUE THROUGH SAT MORNING...THEN TAPER OFF SAT AFTERNOON. MOST
OF THE PRECIP IS EXPECTED FRI NIGHT WITH TOTALS OF LESS THAN 0.25
INCH FOR MOST LOCATIONS WEST OF THE MTNS. THE STRONG SW TO W WINDS
WILL RESULT IN STRONG OROGRAPHIC ENHANCEMENT...AND SOME AREAS
ALONG THE COASTAL MTN SLOPES COULD GET BETWEEN 0.50 AND 0.75 INCH
OF RAIN. THE SNOW LEVEL IS EXPECTED TO LOWER TO BETWEEN 5000 AND
5500 FT BY SAT MORNING...AND A FEW INCHES OF SNOW COULD ACCUMULATE
ABOVE 5500 FT WITH UP TO 4 INCHES POSSIBLE AT THE HIGHEST PEAKS OF
THE SAN BERNARDINO AND SAN JACINTO MTNS. THE COLD AIR MOVING IN
ALOFT ON SAT MORNING COULD RESULT IN ENOUGH INSTABILITY FOR TSTMS...BUT
THEY WILL LIKELY BE ISOLATED AND LIMITED TO AREAS NORTH OF SAN
DIEGO COUNTY. THE SYSTEM MOVES QUICKLY EAST ON SAT AFTERNOON...BUT
TEMPS WEST OF THE MTNS WILL REMAIN IN THE 60S.
A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE GRADUALLY BUILDS IN FROM THE WEST NEXT WEEK 
AND ANY MARINE LAYER WILL BE SHALLOW AND HAVE TROUBLE SPREADING 
INLAND. SO EXPECT FAIR WEATHER WITH A WARMING TREND SUNDAY AND 
MONDAY. AS THIS RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE AMPLIFIES ALONG THE WEST 
COAST...A COLD SFC HIGH OVER THE INTER-MOUNTAIN WEST WILL BRING 
PERIODS OF OFFSHORE FLOW. THIS WILL INCREASE TEMPS IN OUR REGION 
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. 90S WILL BE COMMON AT LOWER ELEVATIONS AND 
EVEN 80S NEAR THE COAST.

SPREAD INLAND OVERNIGHT. EXTENT SHOULD BE FAR ENOUGH INLAND TO

GENERATE 9 TO 10 FOOT SEAS. THE WINDS AND SEAS WILL CREATE 
CONDITIONS HAZARDOUS FOR SMALL CRAFT DURING THIS PERIOD...SO A SMALL 
CRAFT ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY 
MORNING. WINDS WILL DECREASE SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
