AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN DIEGO CA
930 AM PST THU NOV 20 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE SOUTHEAST THROUGH CALIFORNIA 
TONIGHT AND FRIDAY MORNING...BRINGING SCATTERED LIGHT SHOWERS ALONG 
AND WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS AND SOME LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS FOR THE 
MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS. DRY BUT COOL WEATHER WILL FOLLOW THROUGH THE 
WEEKEND. SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT BASIN WILL RESULT IN 
DRY OFFSHORE FLOW DEVELOPING NEXT WEEK FOR FAIR AND WARMER WEATHER.
 
&&
.DISCUSSION...FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE...
SAN DIEGO...WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO
COUNTIES...
LOW CLOUDS STRUGGLED TO FORM LAST NIGHT WITH ONLY A FEW PATCHES OVER 
ORANGE COUNTY AND NORTHERN SAN DIEGO COUNTY THIS MORNING. THESE 
CLOUDS WILL QUICKLY CLEAR TODAY...LEAVING US WITH ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL 
DAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW SEASONAL AVERAGES. 
CLOUD COVER WILL INCREASE BY LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING AS THE UPPER 
LEVEL TROUGH OFF THE NORCAL COAST MOVES THROUGH CALIFORNIA. THIS 
TROUGH WILL BRING MOSTLY LIGHT SHOWERS TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY 
MORNING...WITH THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION FALLING EARLY FRIDAY 
MORNING. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE MOSTLY LIGHT...ONE-TENTH OF AN 
INCH OR LESS...WITH A FEW AREAS UP TO ONE-QUARTER OF AN INCH ALONG 
THE FAVORED UPSLOPE AREAS OF THE COASTAL MOUNTAINS. THE SNOW LEVEL 
WILL DROP TO AROUND 7000 FEET...BUT SNOW AMOUNTS WILL BE ONLY AROUND 
ONE HALF INCH OR LESS DUE TO LIMITED MOISTURE AT THAT ALTITUDE. 
GUSTY WEST WINDS WILL ALSO ACCOMPANY THIS SYSTEM...THOUGH WITH MAX 
GUSTS ONLY AROUND 35 TO 40 MPH...IT DOES NOT APPEAR ANY WIND 
ADVISORIES WILL BE NEEDED AT THIS TIME. PRECIPITATION WILL TAPER OFF 
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AS THE SYSTEM EXITS OUT TO THE EAST.
AS WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND...A STRONG JET STREAM WILL EXTEND 
THROUGH THE WEST SETTING UP PERSISTENT DRY AND COOL NORTHWEST FLOW 
ALOFT WITH A FEW WEAK EMBEDDED SHORTWAVES. THIS COMBINATION WILL 
SERVE TO KEEP GUSTY WINDS GOING FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS 
THROUGH SUNDAY. WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS WILL BE MODERATELY STRONG IN 
THESE AREAS WITH GUSTS 45 TO 50 MPH...LOCALLY UP TO 55 MPH IN THE 
WIND PRONE LOCATIONS...MAINLY SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY 
AFTERNOON. THEREFORE A WIND ADVISORY WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED FOR THAT 
TIME. 
FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE GREAT 
BASIN RESULTING IN WEAK TO MODERATE OFFSHORE FLOW FOR SOUTHERN 
CALIFORNIA. THIS WILL RAISE DAYTIME TEMPERATURES INTO THE MID-70S 
WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS...WITH SOME INLAND VALLEY LOCATIONS REACHING 
INTO THE LOW 80S FOR TUESDAY. EAST WINDS WILL BE STRONGEST EARLY 
EACH MORNING WITH THE HIGHEST WINDS BEING EARLY TUESDAY MORNING 
GUSTING UP TO 35 MPH ON THE COASTAL MOUNTAIN SLOPES AND IN THE FAR 
WESTERN VALLEYS...ESPECIALLY IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY WHERE LOCAL GUSTS 
COULD REACH 45 MPH. 
FOR THE LATTER HALF OF NEXT WEEK...THE MODELS CONTINUE TO BE IN 
ALMOST COMPLETE OPPOSITION. THE GFS HOLDS ON TO A RIDGE WITH 
UNSEASONABLY WARM WEATHER...WHILE THE ECMWF DROPS A COLD TROUGH OUT 
OF CANADA WITH COLDER WEATHER AND A CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION. WITH 
THE ONGOING MODEL UNCERTAINTIES...WILL KEEP THE FORECAST AS A 
COMPROMISE BETWEEN THE TWO WITH A COOLING TREND BUT REMAINING DRY.
