Potential increases in PM10 concentrations may increase to moderate or unhealthy level.
|Imperial County Weather Synopsis|
|SYNOPSIS FROM THE SAN DIEGO OFFICE
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue through this afternoon as a weak low pressure trough moves across the region. Fair and warmer midweek as high pressure rebuilds aloft. Another low pressure trough will bring more clouds...cooling...and a chance of precipitation late in the week.
Showers and thunderstorms continue to move north-northeast across the region this morning, mainly over Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties. The main band of precipitation has begun to shift east slightly with shower activity increasing over portions of San Diego County. This eastward trend will continue through the afternoon as a short-wave trough rotating around the base of the upper low off the coast lifts northeast and weakens. Both the NAM, and to a lesser extent, the GFS, show increasing elevated instability and a 110 kt jet streak nosing into the area this afternoon. This will maintain the chance of showers and thunderstorms through the day, with precipitation gradually tapering off from west to east by late afternoon as drier air filters into Southern California.
SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
A low pressure system northwest of the region continues to draw a considerable amount of subtropical moisture into the Desert Southwest. This will lead to a threat of isolated showers and thunderstorms through tonight. Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible over southeast California and southwest Arizona through early afternoon and then mainly late this afternoon and early evening over south central Arizona. Drier and warmer conditions will return by the middle of the week.
