On 19 July and 24 July, near the beginning of this monsoon period, a small wave and a deformation zone very close to the monsoonal front generated showers and thunderstorms that extended from just southwest of Southern California to over Southern California. A pair of lows off the coast and the small wave likely created optimal wind patterns and moisture gradients along and near the monsoonal boundary, so exceptionally well developed vortices occurred. Conditions may have been more favorable for even very small vortices to develop under relatively marginal conditions in Southern California (however, conditions seemed exceptionally strong for supporting convection and easily sufficient for thunderstorms based on the instability). On 1 August large inverted troughs began enhancing the monsoonal boundary moisture, instability, and forcing for severe weather and flash flooding. These inverted troughs showed up as huge circulations on the monsoonal boundary. This monsoonal event ended the evening of 4 August, when westerly flow pushed the monsoonal boundary to the east with drier air moving in. In this study, an inspection of the numerous waves, potential causes, and detection strategies will be presented. Although initially considered to be preliminary, non-operational data, some information can be gleaned from GOES-16 data, so some thoughts on GOES-16 possibilities will be included. Other tools will also be utilized to further analyze these very interesting weather phenomena and the conditions associated with them.
