  • ...STRONG THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE LATER TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY FOR
    SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA...
    A POWERFUL COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO SWEEP THROUGH SOUTHWEST
    CALIFORNIA LATER TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING. THE COMBINATION
    OF STRONG DYNAMICS WITH THIS STORM SYSTEM AND INCREASING
    INSTABILITY WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS
    ALONG THE COLD FRONT. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS COULD BE STRONG
    BRINGING THE POTENTIAL FOR INTENSE DOWNPOURS WITH RAINFALL RATES
    IN EXCESS OF ONE INCH PER HOUR. IN ADDITION, LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND
    GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MILES PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE, CAPABLE OF
    DOWNED TREES AND POWERLINES, AS WELL AS PROPERTY DAMAGE. BEHIND
    THE COLD FRONT, A COOL AND UNSTABLE AIR MASS WILL CONTINUE TO
    BRING A THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE DAY TUESDAY, BRINGING
    THE POTENTIAL FOR BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND SMALL HAIL.
    A FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF SOUTHERN
    SANTA BARBARA, VENTURA, AND LOS ANGELES COUNTIES DUE TO THE
    POTENTIAL FOR HIGH RAINFALL RATES ASSOCIATED WITH THESE
    THUNDERSTORMS. PLEASE CHECK THE LATEST ROAD CONDITIONS BEFORE
    DEPARTING FOR YOUR DESTINATION, AS THESE STORMS WILL LIKELY CAUSE
    NUMEROUS ROAD CLOSURES AND TRAFFIC DELAYS. A MARINE WEATHER
    STATEMENT IS ALSO IN EFFECT FOR THE COASTAL WATERS TO HIGHLIGHT
    THE POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS AND ISOLATED WATERSPOUTS OVER
    THE COASTAL WATERS.
