|Imperial County Weather Synopsis|
|SYNOPSIS FROM THE SAN DIEGO OFFICE
A deepening trough over the West will result in cooler, breezy weather through Tuesday along with a deep marine layer. It will turn a little warmer Wednesday and Thursday as the trough weakens. More significant warming will take place Friday through Sunday as high pressure aloft builds over the Southwest.
More specifically, A trough is in place across the west to start the work week, but by week`s end Southern California will be under the influence of an expansive ridge of high pressure. The result will be an onshore wind flow pattern/below normal temps transitioning to weak offshore flow/hotter temps by the upcoming weekend. In the near term, winds have become quite gusty through and below passes and along desert mountain slopes. Peak gusts of 50 mph have been registered at Whitewater (typical windiest location on the desert side of the San Gorgonio pass), but gusts across the rest of wind-prone areas on westerly flow have been in the 30-40 mph range and do not expect much if any increase in the winds this morning, so will not issue a Wind Advisory.
SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
A brief cooling trend will continue today as a low pressure system settles across the intermountain West. Operational and ensemble guidance continues to indicate that an anomalously strong anticyclone across the northern Gulf will retrograde into northern Mexico through the week. This will result in a gradual warming trend across the Desert Southwest, with temperatures again flirting with the 100 degree mark across the lower deserts late in the week. Above normal temperatures will return Tuesday along with a warming trend into the weekend. There will be a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms across far eastern Arizona during the midweek period as southwesterly flow develops between a building area of high pressure and a persistent low pressure system across the western states.
