Issued Zones: San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego Mountains … High Desert from Lucerne to Barstow/Irwin and through to Stateline/Las Vegas … Morongo Basin … Banning Pass … All Low Desert except the Coachella Valley …
Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch and Thunderstorm Watch effective now through this evening …
Date Issued: 8/8/22 at 9:15am local
Forecast: An easterly wave moving in out of Arizona clearly seen crossing the Colorado River this morning will move eastward. Positive Vorticy Advection out ahead of it will act like a giant wave and hit the mountain areas this afternoon and evening.
Outflow from these storms on the Baja Spine (Big Bear to San Diego/Mexico border along with mountains including Riverside Mountains will move into the High Desert and Morongo Basin areas igniting thunderstorms there.
Instability parameters exist in the Severe Thunderstorm Watch area for severe hail and damaging winds. What is interesting about today is outflow from the southwest of Imperial County (Brawley) will move northeast and impact Imperial County later in the period, which is always a rarity. Brawley seems to be at the better end, and so does the southern end of the Salton Sea.
Alerts will need to be made again for your Tuesday so stay tuned for those …

10 mile rule: These alerts issued on this site means that within your zone and 10 miles from you will see the event forecast for. You may or may not see the event but it means you are in the zone or 10 miles from where someone will.
Southern California Weather Force is a custom weather alert service that began in September 1999 off and is regarded as the most accurate weather service in the region, offering custom alerts, maps, and models to help save life and property. The work done here is never 100% accurate, but it comes pretty close. Southern California Weather Force runs on zones, so if an event happens in a zone that is 10 miles from the border of your zone, the forecast is still valid to activate your zone’s alert system. A company quote to the public is that of “The Joker” and tells other agencies in weather this all the time… “This world deserves a better class of meteorologist… and I’m gonna give it to them”… out-forecasting even the National Weather Service with lead-time and precision, which makes this service a focus of ridicule and envy in the weather community due to having such accuracy. Alerts issued here are issued custom from this office and this office alone. You may not even hear it elsewhere, but if one is issued near or in your area, listen up because “if you do not wish to die in weather, follow, it’ll save your life one day.”
