Synopsis 20 100 pm.

Clouds and strong onshore winds will bring a cooling trend
through Friday. For the coast and valleys, low clouds with
possible night through morning drizzle will likely struggle to
clear each afternoon through Friday. A warming trend is expected
over the weekend and into early next week as onshore winds
weaken.

Short term (tdy-sun) 20 140 pm.

June gloom pattern continues with little overall change the next
few days. The inversion has deepened over 3000' today and could be
in excess of 4000' by tomorrow as a trough passes by to the north.

So we'll likely see a repeat of the morning drizzle in many areas
with some locations, particularly in upslope areas of la county,
getting measurable rain. Models do show a little offshore trend in
the gradients so afternoon breezes may not be as strong across
the interior, but clearing will still likely be quite slow or even
non-existent for some locations.

Those offshore trends will continue Saturday through Monday and
combine with a building ridge across the eastern pacific to lower
the marine layer depth and bring some warming, mainly for inland
areas. Clouds still expected to linger near the coast through the
afternoon but clearing elsewhere should be much earlier.

Long term (mon-thu) 20 151 pm.

The warming trend will reverse Tuesday as the next trough arrives
on the west coast. A stronger onshore flow will develop through
Thursday with cooling temps pushing inland. Then warming expected
going Friday into next weekend as high pressure strengthens and
expands over the desert southwest. Models also hinting at some
northerly flow developing in the lower levels that would bring
more warming to coastal areas and possibly a reprieve in the june
gloom conditions.

Aviation 20 1832z.

At 1654z, the marine layer depth was around 2600 feet deep at
klax. The top of the inversion was near 5400 feet with a
temperature around 21 degrees celsius.

Low confidence for the coastal and valley TAF sites. The main
uncertainty is whether these sites will have any clearing this
afternoon, and it is basically a coin toss. The antelope valley,
meanwhile will haveVFR conditions, but strong gusty winds will
mar an otherwise perfect day. The coastal slopes will continue to
see plenty of mountain obscuration due to the marine clouds.

Klax... Low confidence with 18z taf. Expect persistent MVFR cigs
to linger through the afternoon hours, but there is a 40 percent
chance of afternoon clearing. Clouds will continue tonight and
Friday.

Kbur... Moderate confidence in 18z taf. Expect persistent MVFR cigs
to linger through the afternoon hours, but there is a 40 percent
chance of afternoon clearing. Clouds will continue tonight and
Friday.

Marine 20 104 pm.

Outer waters... High confidence with seas remaining below small
craft advisory (sca) thresholds through at least Friday morning.

Then a 60% chance for SCA level NW gusts across the northern
portion (pzz670) and 40% chance for (pzz673) and even lower chance
for the southern outer waters zone (pzz676). 20% chance for sca
across the outer waters this weekend.

Inner waters N and S of point conception... Winds are expected to
remain below SCA thresholds through this weekend.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... Wind advisory in effect until 8 pm pdt this evening for zone
37. (see laxnpwlox).

Wind advisory in effect until 10 pm pdt this evening for zone
59. (see laxnpwlox).

Hazard potential outlook (sun-thu)
No significant hazards expected.

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.
