area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service los angeles oxnard ca
907 pm pdt Tue jul 25 2017

Synopsis
Dry southwest flow aloft and building high pressure will
gradually warm temperatures this week to a few degrees above
normal. Overnight and morning low clouds will continue along the
coast.

Short term (tue-fri)
the monsoonal moisture in place the last couple of days is slowly
starting to stabilize and dry as drier southwest flow aloft
entrains into the flow and the surface loses solar insolation.

Mentions of showers and thunderstorms have been removed from the
forecast for tonight in the latest update.

A high pressure system centered over texas will slowly build in
into the four corners region through late Thursday. As it does, a
warming trend will develop due to weakening onshore flow and a
thinning marine layer. Nam-wrf time height sections across the
area continues to indicate a similar trend with the near-surface
moisture getting squashed each day through Thursday and remaining
shallow into Friday. A few tweaks have been made to the forecast
based upon the latest data, but otherwise, the forecast seems on
track.

*** from previous discussion ***
temperatures could reach toward dangerously hot levels across
portions of the area on Friday and a heat advisory could needed
Friday for the los angeles and ventura county mountains, if this
trend continues.

Long term (sat-tue)
the ridge aloft weakens some while pushing into northern arizona
over the weekend as the remnant moisture from hurricane hilary
could get embedded in the flow around the high pressure system.

Gfs and ECMWF solutions hint at some semblance of an easterly wave
moving over the region. A slight chance of showers and
thunderstorms remain in the forecast over the weekend over the
mountains and desert and into early next week as a low confidence
forecast looks to develop.

Some model differences start to develop over the weekend and into
early next week. Both model solutions agree that the high pressure
system will strengthen to near 598 dm over the great basin some
time between Tuesday and late next week. While agreement exists
for further warming, timing will be difficult to place as much
will depend upon the movement of the remnants of hurricane hilary.

Aviation 26 0119z.

At 00z, the marine layer depth was around 1250 feet deep at klax.

The top of the marine inversion was around 1900 feet with a
temperature near 21 degrees celsius. There was another inversion
above up to 5000 feet.

Moderate confidence in the forecast. Higher confidence in
categories. Lower confidence in timing. Lifr to ifr conditions,
except MVFR conditions for los angeles county coastal terminals
will spread in between 05z and 13z. Highest confidence in timing
for terminals north of point conception, but southern terminals
could delay by up 4-6 hours after the current forecast.

Klax... There is a 70 percent chance of MVFR conditions between 06z
and 17z; however, MVFR conditions could delay until as late as
13z. There is a 30 percent chance ofVFR conditions continuing
throughout the period.

Kbur... There is a 40 percent chance of ifr to MVFR conditions
between 10z and 16z, otherwiseVFR conditions will likely
continuing throughout the period.

Marine 25 800 pm.

For the outer waters, good confidence in current forecast. Winds
and seas will remain below small craft advisory (sca) levels
through Thursday. For Friday and Saturday, winds may increase to
sca levels in the far north portion.

For the inner waters, good confidence in current forecast. For the
waters north of point sal, winds and seas are expected to remain
just below SCA levels through Saturday. For the waters south of
point conception, winds and seas will remain below SCA levels
through Saturday.

Beaches 25 900 pm.

Hurricane hilary will generate a southeasterly swell that will
impact southern california beaches this weekend. The southeasterly
swell will move into the coastal waters early Friday, then peak
on Sunday. High surf conditions as well as strong rip currents
will be likely across south-facing beaches this weekend. Isolated
damaging sets of surf and beach erosion cannot be ruled out for
the south-facing beaches of los angeles and ventura counties.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... Beach hazards statement in effect from Friday morning through
Tuesday evening for zones 40-41-87. (see laxcfwlox).

Pz... None.

Hazard potential outlook (fri-tue)
a significant surf event could develop late Thursday as swells
from hurricane hilary arrive at the southern california beaches.

High surf and strong rip currents will occur from Friday through
Sunday.

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.
