SAN DIEGO OFFICE - DISCUSSION
Early this morning the marine layer is near 3000 to 35oo feet deep with widespread stratus extending into the far inland valleys and into the Banning and Cajon passes.
A low pressure system centered along the British Columbia coast will move southward along the West Coast through Thursday and Friday then weaken for the weekend into early next week as high pressure aloft strengthens off the West Coast.
Onshore flow will strengthen further for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday night with period of strong gusty west winds from the mountain ridge tops into the deserts. There could be gusts to around 65 mph in the windier locations with strongest winds for Thursday afternoon and evening.
For next week -
High pressure aloft will strengthen off the West Coast this weekend with surface high pressure developing over the Great Basin early next week. This will bring a warming trend with high temperatures near to a little above average early next week. Period of locally gust northeast winds are possible near the coastal foothills and below passes and canyons early next week.
FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
Dry air over the Southwest will persist through Wednesday as temperatures remain near seasonal normals across southeast California and southern Arizona. A strong expansive area of low pressure will develop over the Western United States during the latter part of the week bringing cooler temperature, breezy conditions, and the chance for showers and a few thunderstorms to eastern portions of Arizona for Thursday and Friday. Well below normal temperatures and dry conditions will move in across the region this weekend.
