Synopsis
A low pressure system will approach by midweek and spread night
through morning low clouds and fog farther inland. A cooling
trend will continue through the end of the week. High pressure
aloft will build in over the weekend to bring warmer conditions
for early next week and push marine layer clouds back to the
coast.

Short term (tue-fri)
a big southwest surge during the late morning hours pushed the
marine lyr and cool maritime air back to the beaches after briefly
clearing earlier in the morning. Temps also spiked unusually
early today as a result with some coastal areas reaching their
high for the day before 10am. The southwest push appears to be
weakening and shifting to a more traditional west northwest flow
and clouds are starting to break up so there could be a secondary
mid to late afternoon temperature spike.

Marine lyr expected to deepen tonight as we start to feel the
effects of a trough and the upper low to our southwest. Between
that and the increasing onshore flow highs Wednesday expected to
drop area-wide with the biggest drops from the valleys inland.

Also expecting to get at least near advisory level westerly winds
across the antelope valley by afternoon with the lax-dag gradient
close to 10mb. Keeping thunderstorms out of the forecast as
models still aren't showing enough moisture below 500 mb to
warrant much of a threat at this time, but still something to keep
an eye on as the instability is certainly there, especially across
the ventura sb mountains.

More significant marine lyr deepening expected Thu fri, up to
4000' or higher as the trough deepens across the west. Could see
some early morning drizzle either day, though a slightly better
chance Friday. Temps will drop further with most coast valley
areas not getting out of the 60s. Skies will be very slow to
clear, if they do at all, and by Friday we could see a reverse
clearing trend. Continued breezy with advisory level winds likely
across the av.

Long term (sat-tue)
ridging over the weekend will bring a warming trend to all areas,
though highs will still be a few degrees below normal Saturday,
then warming to near to a few degrees above normal Sunday and
Monday. Marine lyr will shrink but still be around. Weak troughing
for Tuesday will begin a cooling trend.

Aviation 24 0000z.

At 00z, the marine layer was around 800 feet deep at klax. The
top of the inversion was around 1900 feet with a temperature near 27
degrees celsius.

Low-to-moderate confidence in the current forecast. Lifr to ifr
conditions will spread into coastal terminals through 08z.

Conditions should gradually improve to ifr to MVFR after 08z
through 16z, but there is a chance of lifr to ifr conditions
lingering as much as 5 hours later than forecast. There is a
chance of lifr to ifr conditions at valley terminals after 08z.

MVFR conditions could remain through much of Wednesday at
immediate coastal terminals.

Klax... Ifr conditions will spread into klax through 05z, then
lower to lifr through 08z. There is a chance of lifr to ifr
conditions lingering until as late as 13z. Forecast scatters out
clouds at 20z, but there is a 40 percent chance that MVFR
conditions could remain through much of Wednesday.

Kbur...VFR conditions are expected through at least 09z, then
there is a 50 percent chance of lifr to ifr conditions through
16z.

Marine 23 600 pm.

For the waters north of point sal, high confidence in winds and
seas remaining below SCA levels through Friday. By Saturday,
there is a chance of winds increasing to SCA levels.

For the waters south of point sal, there is a 80 percent chance
of SCA winds developing tonight. Otherwise, winds and seas should
remain below SCA levels through Friday. By Saturday, there is a
chance of winds increasing to SCA levels, especially across the
outer waters portion.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory in effect until 9 pm pdt this evening
for zones 650-655. (see laxmwwlox).

Small craft advisory in effect until 3 am pdt Wednesday for

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.
