|Imperial County Weather Synopsis|
|WIND ADVISORY FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA
WESTERN AND NORTHERN SECTION OF IMPERIAL COUNTY
Northeast to east winds will peak at around 20-35 mph with gusts 50 to 55 mph and isolated gusts 65 to 70 mph
CENTRAL AND EASTERN SECTION OF IMPERIAL COUNTY
Strong, but day, weather system and accompanying jet will create windy conditions along the Colorado River Valley. Breezy north winds by midday with gusts. Strong winds regionally will loft dust/sand and may cause intermittent long-range and slantwise visibility issues through early evening.
RED FLAG WARNING
In effect through Friday morning
Santa Ana winds will strengthen significantly early this morning, first on the San Bernardino County coastal slopes, through and below the Cajon Pass, and into the Santa Ana Mountains/foothills, and then into the Riverside County coastal slopes/passes by 6 am and finally into the San Diego Coastal slopes/foothills by 10 am PST.
Daytime humidity will lower to the 5-8 percent range. The winds will become less widespread Thursday evening but remain quite strong on the San Diego County coastal slopes/foothills. Then, gradually weaken early Friday morning.
SYNOPSIS FROM THE SAN DIEGO OFFICE
Several weak disturbances will dig south over the Great Basin into early next week, squeezing the warm ridge aloft and resulting in periods of Santa Ana winds over SoCal. Continued warm days through Friday, then a bit cooler over the weekend as the marine layer returns briefly. The ridge gradually weakens and shifts a bit more to the west next week, allowing colder systems from the north to enter the picture. They may bring a little rain to northern portions of the state, with noticeable cooling farther to the south as marine air returns.
SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
A dry low-pressure system from the north will pass through the area today bringing windy conditions to southeast California and far western Arizona. Followed by a second, stronger cold front system over the weekend, which will usher in noticeably cooler daytime temperatures for the weekend along with a slight chance of shower for south central Arizona Sunday, mainly over the higher terrain east of Phoenix. Dry and warmer conditions return for the first part of next week.
