 SYNOP:

…Dry offshore flow today…

 

Dry air will infiltrate the region from the north today. Areas of gusty northeast winds will move through the foothills and in the corridor from Cajon Summit to eastern Orange County. Gusts will top 35 mph in the foothills and 25 mph in the valleys. Winds will relax this afternoon with lighter offshore winds Saturday morning. Humidity recovery in breezy areas will be non-existent. Higher fuel moistures will preclude any fire potential, at least for the length of the dry and breezy period. Onshore flow returns Sunday with higher humidity west of the mountains.

Strong winds Monday will be accompanied by more clouds and even a small chance of showers.

Offshore flow follows Tuesday, but winds appear weaker.

Onshore flow returns Wednesday and Thursday with a low pressure

system that shows strong winds and a better chance of showers.

 Gusty north winds which persisted through the overnight hours is gradually weakening and veering to the northeast. Earlier, winds were gusting to over 70 mph in some of the mountains near the I-5 Corridor, but winds in these areas are slackening. The wind direction veering to the northeast will cause the areas of strongest winds to shift to the Santa Ana Canyon, highway 126 in Ventura County and areas near the Banning Pass today.  Offshore gradients will peak during the early morning hours before they slowly abate through Saturday morning.  In general, northeast winds in these areas will be in the 15-30 mph range this morning with local gusts to 40 mph before weakening to 10-20 mph through Saturday morning.  Strong sunshine and offshore flow will result in a sizeable warmup today with highs climbing 10-15 degrees over many areas.  Further warming is expected Saturday, and by then, temperatures will be in the lower 90s in the warmest inland valleys of Southern CA.  Minimum RH will fall into the 10-15% range over much of Southern CA today and Saturday with poor recovery tonight.  Next week, look for continuation of the large temperature swings experienced lately with a 2-3 day interval between very warm and cool weather.  A trough will arrive Sunday and Monday, resulting in gusty winds up to 45 mph in the desert along with light rain over the central coast and Sierras.  Temperatures will drop back into the 50s in the mountains to the lower 70s in the valleys early next week before temperatures warm back into the 80s at lower elevations by Wednesday.  Gusty north winds in Santa Barbara County and the I-5 Corridor are likely next Tuesday night. A stronger system may bring light wetting rain to Central CA by next Thursday with cooler temperatures and gusty winds elsewhere.   NWS LAS VEGAS – (NORTH & EAST OF BARSTOW TO STATE LINE)

Dry and gusty conditions will continue down the

Colorado River Valley today and across most of Mohave county. Red

Flag conditions are expected through the evening before the winds

die off late in the day. Elsewhere, dry conditions with breezy north

winds are expected today with decreasing winds and warming

temperatures over the weekend. Critical fire weather may return to

parts of the region early next week.

 

FORECAST DETAILS

SE California / NW Arizona / Southern NV

Another fast moving weather system will bring strong winds to the region early next week. Winds may pick up across the Sierra and Owens Valley as early as Sunday afternoon and evening, and localized downslope winds are possible. If confidence increases on downslope wind potential, the forecast wind speed graphics will be revised higher. On Monday strong winds will spread across the I-15 corridor including Las Vegas. Once again, strongest winds are expected near the higher terrain and downslope areas, where gusts over 50 mph are likely.

 

Strong winds combined with dry fuels will create a renewed period of potentially high fire danger in Northwest Arizona and along the Colorado River Monday. Stay tuned for possible Fire Weather products in the coming days.

 Fire Potential Discussion: Large fire potential will be elevated in a few areas of Southern CA through Saturday due to very warm temperatures, low RH and locally gusty offshore winds. The greatest threat of a start will be in areas south and east of Los Angeles County which largely missed the rains earlier this month.  These areas are seeing rapid curing of what little grass has grown and live fine fuel moisture will be insufficient to stop new ignitions which occur in windy areas. Look for shifting winds Saturday evening due to a return of onshore flow.  Elevated large fire potential will shift into the desert interface areas early next week where strong winds can be expected.  Light IA will be possible through the period.  

SPECIAL NOTES:

BI-MONTHLY FUELS DISCUSSION

For Southern and Central California

 

Updated: Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Next Routine Update: Thursday, April 26th, 2018

General Discussion: 

An active weather pattern continued through the end of March and into early April as a series of troughs

entered the Pacific Northwest. These storms continued to bring significant rain to the northern half of the state. Another “atmospheric river” type of precipitation event occurred the first week of April which resulted in

high rainfall totals and high snow levels across northern California. The district was generally on the periphery of the precipitation, but cool, humid onshore flow kept fine fuels from drying too much during the past few

weeks.

However, the far southern part of the state, generally south and east of Los Angeles County, have seen the first signs of curing. The next warm and dry period will likely bring extensive and rapid curing to these areas

with fine fuels becoming available for ignition. These same fuel beds will see dead fuels drop back to below normal moisture levels toward the southern border by the end of the month. Therefore, fires will spread during

warm or windy periods across the desert interface areas and intermediate valleys from Los Angeles County southward.

 

Further north, a heavy, green grass crop will likely keep fires at bay outside the desert regions.

The next two weeks appear to offer a highly variable weather pattern with a 3-4 day vacillation between deep troughs and strong ridges. Temperatures will likely fluctuate accordingly with some light precipitation possible

across the far northern part of the district. One or two weak offshore wind events of short duration will be possible through the last week of the month.

 

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX: GREY NO RATING / 

NO RATING: Sundowner winds are either not expected, or will not contribute to significant fire activity.

 

MARGINAL: Upon ignition, fires may grow rapidly.

 

MODERATE: Upon ignition, fires will grow rapidly and will be difficult to control.

 

HIGH: Upon ignition, fires will grow very rapidly, will burn intensely, and will be very difficult to control

 

EXTREME: Upon ignition, fires will have extreme growth, will burn very intensely, and will be uncontrollable.

 ON THIS DAY WEATHER HISTORY: 2012: A late season storm dropped over a foot of snow in the mountains. 16 inches fell at Arrowbear Lake, 14 at Snow Summit, Onyx Summit at Forest Falls, 12 inches at Mt. San Jacinto Ranger Station, 10 inches at Wrightwood, Big Bear City, and Idyllwild, and 9 inches at Mt. Laguna. This same storm produced strong thunderstorms. A severe thunderstorm hit Anaheim Hills with strong winds once considered a tornado, which damaged a shopping center. Fremont Canyon later reported wind gusts to 63 mph. Thunderstorm winds hit south Hemet, knocking down a tree and ripping off an awning structure on a mobile home. Lightning struck downtown San Diego, damaging a roof of a building and knocking out its power. A waterspout was observed just south of San Clemente Pier. It broke apart as soon as it hit the beach at Cottons Point. Top wind gust at the pier was 71 mph. Another waterspout was observed just off the coast of Oceanside. Strong onshore winds peaked at 83 mph at Burns Canyon.

 

1956: Strong storm winds hit Chula Vista. It was counted officially as a tornado (one witness, a Texas native, claimed it was). Roof damage was done to 60 homes and extensively to a school. Two were injured by flying glass. Trees were uprooted, TV antennas were toppled and more than 300 windows were shattered. Ten fish were sucked out of San Diego Bay and deposited on the ground. A cold snowstorm brought one foot of snow to Mt. Laguna, at least six inches at Palomar Mountain, and 1.5 inches at Julian.

TROPICAL UPDATES:

The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.
