Imperial County Weather Synopsis
Tropical moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Paine will bring warm and humid weather today along with intermittent rain. Most of the rain will fall over San Diego and Riverside counties. On Wednesday there will be a chance of afternoon showers and over the mountains and deserts. Breezy and cooler Thursday as a low pressure trough moves inland across the West. Day and warm Friday through Sunday with weak Santa Ana conditions as high pressure builds over the Great Basin

This precipiation shield will remain nearly stationary throughout the day. It extends 100-200 miles south and west of the Mexican border and is moving northeast with only a very slight shift to the north. This will be primarily a stratiform rain event with embedded heavier showers at times over the San Diego and Riverside County Mountains and lower deserts where the atmosphere is saturated from the surface to 20kft. Storm total precip through tonight could exceed 1 inch in some of the mountain and foothill areas. Farther northwest the lower layers remain fairly dry and very little if any rain will fall over Orange County and San Bernardino County.

Tropical moisture will continue to move into the region today through Wednesday, resulting in mostly cloudy skies and a chance of rain. Rainfall is expected to stay on the light side, with locally moderate amounts at times. On Thursday, a strong and relatively cold low pressure system will plunge into the western states from the north, including parts of northern Arizona. Behind Thursdays cold front, a drier airmass will spread into southeast California and southwest Arizona, with a continued threat of showers over the eastern half of Arizona. Much drier air with clear skies will move in on Friday through Sunday
