Southern California Weather Force has issued a regional wind alert for most of Southern California as a classic northwest slider system moves into the region starting tonight, peaking on Tuesday and Tuesday night with some areas seeing damaging winds and others not, so for your area’s model forecasts read on for details and please pay attention to those details and images as I do not want to hear anyone complain their area is not seeing this event when the forecast clearly would confirm it …
Wind gusts will start today for the mountain and desert regions as onshore flow starts to take hold. The wind gusts through Tuesday will increase in all areas then, including the coast/basin/valley areas. Since this is regional, I will go ahead and outline the key areas.
- 90% of Southern California will have advisory level 30+ mph wind gusts.
- There will be some rain with it, not much, but the information for that is below.
- Trees and/or powerlines will be down in the stronger hit areas.
- Strong winds on Tuesday should prevent small crafts from being out in the island region (bight) of Southern California. If you plan on being out there, you will have 40-50 mph wind gusts out of the west-northwest then, so it is not recommended.
- The hardest hit area will be around the San Diego/Imperial Border along I-8 where high profile vehicles will be certain to tip over.
- The weakest of the rain/wind will be parts of the Riverside/Corona areas of the Inland Empire, where I call it ‘The Screw Zone’, meaning if you want active weather then you won’t see much as other areas will.
- Winds will weaken on Wednesday, leaving a weak offshore (Santa Ana Wind Pattern) flow into Thursday.
- Another system comes in this weekend, but it could be a southern slider and favor the stronger hits into San Diego, but it is being monitored.
Please use the information below for the SCWF rain and wind models Monday night through Tuesday …

He has certs from Mississippi State for broadcast met and Penn State forecasting certs MET 101, 241, 341 and 361 as a meteorologist, but before then was completely self-taught, barely learning a thing from the schools that he did not already know.
Both short and long-range is very important to know in those jobs so you can bet on accuracy here. He is versed in fields like Western USA, Tornadoes, Floods, Hurricanes, High Winds, Fire Behavior, Snow and Blizzards, Short Range, Long Range, Seasonal, and Life-Threatening decisions with over 25 years' experience, out forecasting all weather services available today with lead-time and precision, which makes him a focus of ridicule and envy.
NOTE: Alerts are posted on here, be it a tornado watch, etc, and these alerts are issued from this office and nowhere else. At times, which is often, you will see an alert forecast posted on here that you do not see elsewhere.
