Squall-line Watch


Issued Zones:  Southern Los Angeles County Coast/Basin … Orange County coast/basin … San Diego Coast/Valley …

Site:  Southern California Weather Force has issued a Squall-line Watch effective now for overnight tonight into Sunday morning after sunrise …

Date:  1/5/19 at 4:40pm PT

Forecast: A fast moving cold front is currently near Santa Barbara and is producing waterspout potential.  This was expected with the previously issued FLOOD ADVISORY here at SCWF

This will move in overnight for this region and near a couple hrs before sunrise for San Diego proper.. earlier for OC/LA.  Shear in the low levels is more than enough to warrant the risk of stronger waterspouts that can make it ashore as small tornadoes. 

Because of the lack of some inner dynamics, a Tornado Watch was not needed this time … but tornado mention will do along with gusty frontal zone winds along this squall-line.  The squall-line will be broken so some of you may miss it while others get hit …
