|SYNOPSIS FROM THE SAN DIEGO OFFICE
An upper level disturbance moving westward off the northern Baja coast will draw mid level monsoonal moisture into far Southern California with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms over southern San Diego County today and the mountains for this afternoon and evening. Slowly warmer inland for Tuesday through Friday as high pressure aloft strengthens slightly. For Friday through next weekend...an influx of monsoonal moisture will bring cooling for next weekend...and a slight chance of afternoon and early evening thunderstorms...mainly near the mountains
The large convective complex that was over northwest Mexico early Sunday morning generated a mesoscale convective vortex. It moved slowly westward across northern Baja and is now centered near the northern Baja coast. On the north side of the circulation center it is drawing mid level monsoonal moisture across far northern Baja and towards far Southern California. Showers have developed in this band of moisture with thunderstorms in northern Baja adjacent to the far northwest Gulf of California. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms has been added to southern San Diego County this morning and extended northward along the mountains to the San Bernardino Mountains for this afternoon and early evening. The cloud cover from this mid level moisture may bring some slight cooling today...more to the south and less to the south.
Otherwise...some slight inland warming is expected for Tuesday through Friday as high pressure aloft strengthens slightly. A greater influx of monsoonal moisture is possible for Friday through Sunday with a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms... mainly near the mountains...along with some inland cooling for next weekend.
SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
An increase in moisture and cloud cover over the region is expected to take some edge off the heat, and provide somewhat better chances of showers and thunderstorms through the middle part of this week. The best opportunity for rainfall will occur over the higher terrain north and east of Phoenix, with lesser chances heading west into southeast California. A better chance for showers and thunderstorms is then forecast for the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend, as deeper moisture begins to move into the region from the south and southeas
