Preparedness Level (PL 4) SYNOP: NOTE:   Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.

***Scattered showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday***

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to move across the region through Wednesday as an area of low pressure sits off the coast of Point Conception. The low will open and push to the east Thursday as a Pacific trough moves inland across the West Coast ending the shower and thunderstorm threat. Temperatures will continue to be near normal through Tuesday, with mid 70s to mid 80s across the mountains and mid 80s to mid 90s in the valleys. Temperatures will cool to the upper 60s and 70s across the mountains and upper 70s and 80s in the valleys Wednesday through this weekend. Minimum humidity will be above 20% across the region through this weekend. Winds will be light through Tuesday, except there will be strong and erratic winds in and near any thunderstorms. Westerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will surface across the wind prone mountain and desert areas Wednesday through this weekend.

 FLASH FLOOD POTENTIAL INDEX FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA

There is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms over

portions of the mountains and high deserts this afternoon and

again Tuesday afternoon with a low risk of flash flooding.

                                                       MON     TUE

Inland Empire NONE NONE
San Bernardino County Mountains LOW LOW
High Desert Including Apple and Lucerne Valleys LOW LOW
San Gorgonio Pass Near Banning LOW NONE

Flash Flood Codes: GREEN: NONE   YELLOW: LOW   ORANGE: MODERATE  RED: HIGH NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Low pressure system off the California coast will slowly make its  way across the local area mid-week. This will keep chances for  showers and thunderstorms in the forecast primarily for southeastern  California, Mohave County, and the higher elevations of the  southern Great Basin through Wednesday. This system will also allow  for breezy, southerly winds to develop each day. These winds should  stay between 10-15 mph with gusts around 25 mph possible. Secondary  trough will push through Thursday and Friday with cooler, drier  weather pattern expected for the second half of the week.

 

SPECIAL NOTES: N/A

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

The potential for large fire will remain low across the region through this weekend due to showery conditions through Wednesday and then cool and humid conditions Thursday through this weekend. Thunderstorms may cause new lightning ignitions through Wednesday, but they will remain small due to the showery, humid conditions. The showery and humid conditions will also cause a large increase in the dead fuel moisture this week. Expect light to moderate initial attack activity through Wednesday and then light IA activity Thursday through this weekend.

2012: A stationary thunderstorm brought persistent, heavy rain to Mecca. Three to five inches of rain fell in just a couple hours (more than a year’s worth). Floodwaters damaged a school, a mobile home park and several orchards.

2008: A thunderstorm produced strong outflow winds measured at 67 mph in La Quinta. Another thunderstorm produced golf ball sized hail in Ranchita.

2004: Severe thunderstorms in Borrego Springs produced one inch hail that broke windows. Strong winds gusted to 60 mph before the anemometer was destroyed, and knocked down six power poles. Training thunderstorms over Johnson Valley produced severe flash flooding. Hwy. 247 was washed out in numerous sections. Minor damage to homes occurred and 12 vehicles were trapped. In La Quinta, 138 trees were knocked down at one golf course with damage to a building. More trees fell down at other golf courses. Roof tiles were blown off. Damage occurred to power poles and transformers.

 

1990: It was 117° in Borrego Springs, the highest temperature on record for September. This also occurred the previous day on 9/10.

1976: Record rains that started on 9/9 ended on 9/12 came from Tropical Storm Kathleen (called a 160+ year event by meteorologists). 14.76 inches fell on south slopes of Mt. San Gorgonio, 10.13 inches at Mt. Laguna, eight inches at Mt. San Jacinto, four+ inches in the Little San Bernardino Mountains, and 1.8 to 2.8 inches in the Coachella Valley. Deep Canyon (above La Quinta) recorded 2.96 inches in three hours on 9/10. Rainfall in the Santa Rosa Mountains above the Coachella Valley was called the “heaviest in recorded history.” Six were buried and killed in sand in Ocotillo. Floods of record were attained at numerous streams around the Coachella Valley. 1.84 inches of rain fell in Riverside on this day, 2.09 inches fell in Borrego Springs, 2.33 inches fell in Victorville, 2.57 inches fell in Idyllwild, and five inches fell in Palomar Mountain, each the greatest daily amounts on record for September. The Victorville amount is also the third highest daily amount on record. This occurred during the El Niño of 1976-77. Hurricane Kathleen also brought the southwest the highest sustained winds ever associated with an eastern Pacific tropical cyclone with sustained winds of 57 mph at Yuma on 9/10.

1971: It was 100° in Palomar Mountain, the highest temperature on record. This occurred on eight other occasions.

1960: North-northwestward moving Hurricane Estelle dissipated west of the central Baja California coast from 9/9 to this day and spread tropical moisture and thunderstorms into Southern California. Julian measured 3.40 inches of rainfall. Flooding washed out roads near Lucerne Valley and blocked roadways near Forest Falls. A strong downburst in Redlands splintered trees.

1939: Four inches of rain fell across the deserts and mountains as a dying tropical cyclone moved across Baja California into southwestern Arizona on this day and on 9/12. This was the second tropical cyclone to impact California during the busy month of September 1939. A strong El Niño contributed to the activity.

===================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:

Tropical Weather Outlook

Tropical Weather Outlook

For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

The remnants of Katia located about 350 miles west-southwest of

Manzanillo, Mexico are associated with a low pressure center with

numerous showers and thunderstorms. Strong upper-level winds should

limit development of this system while it moves westward at 10 to 15

mph during the next couple of days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

A trough of low pressure located a few hundred miles south of the

southern coast of Mexico is producing disorganized showers and

thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to be

conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to

form later this week while the system moves slowly northwestward.

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

* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.

Another area of low pressure is expected to form several hundred

miles south-southwest of the Baja California peninsula by the middle of the week. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development after that time while it moves northward or northwestward.

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

* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent.
