SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
Weak offshore flow and very low relative humidity will continue elevated fire weather conditions over much of the area today. Any moderate easterly winds will be localized below passes and near the coastal foothills through late morning, then weaken and turn onshore. Some increase in humidity will occur west of the mountains today, with better overnight recovery into Sunday morning. Cooler weather and higher relative humidity will ease fire weather conditions through Monday. It will turn drier and warmer again midweek as the marine layer retreats. Winds should remain relatively weak until Thursday when gusty onshore flow could Return.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
A fairly benign weather pattern is expected through much of next week with temperatures returning to near or slightly above normal values with dry conditions. A cooling trend and gusty north winds are on the horizon next weekend as a broad trough moves across the western states.

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:
2015: Unseasonable high pressure and warm ocean waters led to very warm October days and the warmest October nights on record from 10/10 through 10/15. In San Diego, five out of the six highest October minimum temperatures on record occurred. The highest minimum temperature in any October was 76° on 10/10 and again on 10/13. This is only two degrees off the highest minimum temperature for any time of year! (Only seven nights in history recorded 77 or 78°, all of which occurred during September, meaning these October nights were warmer than any night in July or August in San Diego). On 10/10 the highest minimum temperature in October was also recorded in Chula Vista (73, only three degrees off all-time highest), Oceanside Harbor (74, only two degrees off all-time highest), and El Cajon (tied 69). On 10/13 Santa Ana recorded 78°, the highest October minimum temperature on record. The top six warmest October nights on the Chula Vista record occurred this month, and the top five in El Cajon occurred this month.

1987: A prolonged period of showers from the remnants of Hurricane Ramon started on 10/5 and ended on this day. Rainfall amounts ranged from 0.75 inch at the coast to two inches in the mountains. 2.14 inches fell at Camp Pendleton, 2.08 inches in Fallbrook and 0.69 inch fell at Lindbergh Field. Minor flood damage occurred.

1985: A thunderstorm produced wind gusts close to 80 mph near Encinitas. Tree and power pole damage was widespread, and the roof was ripped off a duplex.

1950: Strong high pressure brought record high temperatures. It was 93° in Idyllwild, the highest temperature on record for October. This also occurred on 10/1/1980.

1924: An early season cold snap gripped Southern California from 10/11 to 10/13. On this day it was 34° in Santa Ana, the lowest temperature on record for October. This also occurred on 10/21/1949 and on 10/31/1935. It was 32° in Escondido, the earliest freezing temperature of the season on record. It is also the lowest temperature on record for October, which also occurred the next day on 10/13.

1889: A monsoon-type thunderstorm brought 7.58 inches of rain to Encinitas in eight hours from 10 pm this day to 6 am on 10/13. 0.44 inch fell in San Diego.

==================================================================
TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:
For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

An elongated area of low pressure centered several hundred miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula continues to produce a large area of showers and thunderstorms. This system has become a little better organized since yesterday, and environmental conditions are conducive for additional development. A tropical depression is expected to form during the next day or two while the system moves northwestward and then northward at 5 to 10 mph. Conditions will become less conducive for additional development early next week when the system begins to encounter colder waters and stronger upper-level winds.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.

An area of low pressure has formed several hundred miles south of the coast of southern Mexico. While the associated thunderstorm activity shows some signs of organization, environmental conditions are not currently conducive for additional development. This system is expected to move little during the next couple of days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.

A broad area of low pressure is forecast to form over the eastern Pacific south of the coast of southeastern Mexico early next week. Some gradual development of this system is possible after that time while it moves west-northwestward.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.
