SOUTH OPS WX:
A ridge of high pressure will remain centered over the Desert Southwest today. An area of low pressure currently off the Southern California Coast will move east today and inland over Southern California Saturday morning. This low will be moving quickly and be well east of the region by Sunday. A ridge of high pressure will build into California from the Pacific Ocean Sunday and it will be directly overhead Tuesday through the end of next week.

ꞏ Local northeast to east winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph will continue to surface across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California this morning.

ꞏ Maximum temperatures will remain around 10 degrees above normal today, with 50s to low 60s across the mountains and upper 60s and 70s in the valleys.

ꞏ Minimum humidity will remain mainly between 15% and 30% today.

ꞏ Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will move across the region this evening through Saturday evening.

ꞏ Rainfall amounts still look to be quite variable but expect most foothill and mountain locations to receive between a quarter inch and a half inch of rainfall and most coastal and valley locations to receive less than a quarter inch of rainfall.

ꞏ It looks as though the San Diego County Mountains will receive the most rainfall, with up to an inch.

ꞏ The snow level will be between 5,000 and 6,000 feet.

ꞏ Temperatures will cool to 5 to 10 degrees below normal Saturday, with 40s to low 50s across the mountains and mid 50s to mid 60s in the valleys.

ꞏ Westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface across the mountain ridges and desert passes Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

ꞏ Substantial warming and drying will occur Sunday through Tuesday and then there will be little change in the weather through the end of next week.

ꞏ Temperatures will be well above normal Tuesday through the end of next week, with low to mid 80s common in the valleys of Southern California.

ꞏ Minimum humidity will be mainly in the teens Tuesday through the end of next week.

. There will be local northeast to east winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California Monday morning through the end of next week.
