A weak upper low just west of point conception will maintain
overnight low clouds and fog, along with cooler than normal
temperatures through late in the week. As the upper low moves
inland... A warming trend is expected starting Friday, with
significant warming possible over the weekend.
The marine layer has shrunk to about 1100 feet and the capping
inversion is quite weak. There are 2 mb offshore trends both from
the north and the east. There are no low clouds anywhere near
coasts. All of the latest mdl guidance shows very little in the
way of low clouds for Tuesday morning. Will not buy fully into
this idea but did take low clouds out of all areas this evening
and totally removed them from the vlys and the sba south coast.
Coastal MAX temps were a little warmer than fcst today and with
a weaker marine layer expect a little more warming tomorrow. The
forecast has been updated to reflect these warmer temps and
Short term (mon-thu)
between the reduced marine lyr and another 1-2mb of offshore
trends most areas should see a few degrees of warming Tuesday,
especially the coasts and valleys.
A slight onshore trend Wednesday and Thursday may bring a degree
or two of cooling to coast and coastal valleys Wednesday but
otherwise very little change. Low clouds will continue to push
into the valleys overnight and clear to around the coast or just
offshore during the afternoon. Monsoon moisture will remain well
to the east so no convection expected.
Long term (fri-mon)
Friday will be the beginning of what appears to be a significant
warming trend that will last at least through the middle of next
week. Friday and Saturday will just be a couple degrees warmer
with still some decent onshore flow in place and low clouds
likely still reaching the coastal valleys overnight. By Sunday,
however, high pressure is expected to strengthen from the
southeast and onshore flow will be weakening quite a bit. Highs
expected to reach the triple digits in the warmer valleys Sunday
and even warmer Monday. And by next Tue or Wed we could be looking
at some weak offshore flow in the morning and highs into the 90s
for some coastal areas and well over 100 for the valleys. The door
is open for monsoon moisture but models still not showing
anything moving into our area at least through early next week.
at 1800z, the marine inversion at klax was near 1500 feet deep.
The top of the inversion was 2800 feet with a temperature of 23

from 06z to 18z. Low clouds could form at coastal sites at anytime
between 06z to 13z. There is a 30 percent chc no CIGS at all at
any coastal site and a 40 percent chc of CIGS at the vly site. If
low clouds do form theVFR transition could arrive up to 90 min
earlier than fcst.

outer waters, good confidence through Wednesday afternoon then moderate
confidence. Through Wednesday, winds and seas will remain below
small craft advisory (sca) levels. For Wednesday night, there is a
60 percent chance of SCA level winds developing. For Thursday and
Friday, the winds will likely remain at SCA level and northwest
to west swell will build to 6-7 ft.
Inner waters, high confidence in current forecast. For the waters
north of point sal, winds and seas will remain below SCA levels
through Wednesday. From Wednesday night through Friday, SCA level
winds will be possible mainly in the afternoon and evening. For
the waters south of point conception, winds and seas will remain
below SCA levels.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
