Thunderstorm Watch Issued For Southwest Southern California, Including All Metros and High Desert


Southern California Weather Force has issued a Thunderstorm Watch effective from midnight until evening on Friday, April 5th, 2024 for the following zones:

Zone Issued:  San Luis Obispo, Kern, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego County … The Inland Empire … High Desert Metro … Offshore Island Zones from Channel Islands through Catalina, San Nicolas, and San Clemente Island … Northern Baja from Tecate, to Ensenada …

Discussion:  A late season storm system will move through the area on Friday.  Colder air aloft will work with the higher sun angle to produce storms on the San Luis Obispo to Vandenberg areas as early as later tonight.  This colder air aloft will make way to the east into the rest of the metro zones.  Coastal areas can see thunderstorms early, but we will need to wait for the Sun to get the instability needed for the rest of the inland zones within this thunderstorm watch area.

BASEBALL GAMES:  Angel’s game will be downwind for the convergence zone, so you will have clear weather during the evening game, however the Padre’s Game will be in a west to east flow, morning off and on showers and thunderstorms will hit for you since you are an afternoon game.  Angel’s game looks good, Padre’s game looks caution to bad.

Thunderstorms in the watch area will contain the following:

Funnel/Tornado Chance
Strong Winds
Torrential Downpours

Thunderstorms will vacate the area by sunset …

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 RangeLong 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.
