Lightning Watch


Issued Zones:  Metro Los Angeles County … Orange, The Inland Empire … Northern San Diego County … All Desert zones excluding Imperial and San Diego County …Includes Las Vegas …

Site:  Southern California Weather Force has issued a Lightning Watch effective now through this evening …

Date:  5/22/19 at 9:35am PT

Forecast: A powerful cold core low will enter the forecast region today, cutting the forecast area in half.  However, that half that will be cut from dry to wet will be infested with thunderstorms, almost too many to count is what I am going to go with. 

Numerous lightning strikes are set to hit the Los Angeles, Orange, Inland Empire, Neighboring Mountain and Desert Regions, and even as far south as Northern San Diego County around Fallbrook.  These storms will form anywhere in the watch area. 

Because of the 10 mile rule, I’ve extended it to LAX and the OC coast.  The convergence boundary in the metros will be along the Los Angeles and San Bernardino Mountains and shove southward through the rest of the watch area from there. 

Very potent and dynamics atmosphere and with the May sun-angle… we will have the chance of hail out there too.
