Synopsis 13 1213 pm.

Moderate to locally strong santa ana winds will decrease this
afternoon and evening. Lighter offshore winds are expected
tomorrow and Thursday. Onshore flow and a return of the coastal
marine layer starts Friday and lasts through the weekend.

Short term (tdy-fri) 13 417 pm.

***update*** just wanted to give you a wind product update
expected at 5 pm this evening. The high wind warning for the
l.A.And ventura county mtns will be downgraded to a wind advisory
through 10 pm this evening as not anticipating widespread wind
gusts over 45 mph late this evening into tomorrow. There could be
a few isolated gusts around 45 mph in the morning.

Also, will be extending the wind advisories for the ventura county
valleys, santa clarita valley, and the NW portion of the san
fernando valley through 3 pm Wednesday afternoon, as wind gusts to
35 mph should continue into tomorrow. There will be a period this
evening through midnight where gusts are likely to drop below
advisory levels, but should pick up once again early Wednesday
morning.

There will not be any wind advisories for the l.A. And ventura county
coasts or san gabriel valley after 5 pm this evening. There could
be a few isolated gusts around camarillo that could reach 35 mph
briefly in the morning.

***from previous discussion***
santa ana winds about 10 mph weaker today than yesterday across
la ventura counties and even seeing a sea breeze now at the
beaches. No significant changes to the forecast through the end of
the week. Still have offshore flow through Friday morning but
weakening each day. We'll see a little bump up in winds during the
overnight and early morning hours Wednesday but lower than what
we saw today by around 5 mph. This drops many areas below wind
advisory levels. The one possible exception would be the eastern
ventura county valleys in the vicinity of the woolsey fire. Will
likely go ahead and allow advisories and warnings to expire on
schedule at 5 but there's a chance that some isolated advisory
level winds will develop in the eastern ventura valleys.

Had quite a thick layer of high clouds move through today
associated with a trough well to the north. Will see those through
tonight and Wednesday morning before clearing out tomorrow
afternoon.

With more sunshine and a warmer air mass overall expect highs
Wednesday to warm up a couple degrees from today. Similar day thu
except lighter winds and possibly some cooling at the coast with
an earlier sea breeze.

Gradients finally turn onshore Friday and the NAM is showing a
significant increase in boundary layer moisture from la county
south, suggesting that could be our first day of marine layer
stratus in a while. Highs will be a few degrees cooler, mostly in
the 70s.

Long term (sat-tue) 13 118 pm.

Cooling trend that begins in earnest Friday will continue into the
weekend with a return to onshore flow and likely a more widespread
marine layer for coast and eventually the lower valleys. Highs
mostly 60s to lower 70s so finally dropping to near to slightly
below seasonal norms.

As it was yesterday the situation for next week has been
complicated by inconsistent model solutions, though for the 12z
run today there was 100% agreement that any rain chances for this
area would hold off until at least Wednesday as the first upper
low that approaches the west coast actually slides well south into
mexico. This includes all the ensemble members and the nbm. So
have opted to keep rain out of the 7 day forecast. Confidence
doesn't really improve much after next Tuesday other than odds
favor at least some rain coming mid to late next week or the
following weekend but models are still all over the place. It will
probably be a few days at least before we gain any sort of
confidence in our rain chances for next week.

Aviation 14 0009z.

At 0000z at klax, there was no marine inversion.

High confidence in the 00z tafs.VFR conditions will prevail
throughout the 24-hour forecast period. High clouds will prevail
across the region through tonight.

Klax... High confidence in the 00z taf.VFR conditions will
prevail throughout the 30-hour forecast period.

Kbur... High confidence in the 00z taf.VFR conditions will
prevail throughout the forecast period. There is also a 20% chance
of llws at times between 08z-15z

Marine 13 147 pm.

For the outer waters... Generally hi confidence in the current
forecast. There is a 50% chance of small craft advisory (sca)
level NE to E wind gusts to 25 knots through early this afternoon
in the southern outer waters. Otherwise and elsewhere, the winds
will remain below SCA levels through Saturday.

For the inner waters north of point conception... Generally hi
confidence in the current forecast. Conditions are expected to
remain below SCA levels through Saturday.

For the inner waters south of point conception... Generally hi
confidence in the current forecast. There is a 60% chance of sca
level NE wind gusts through early this afternoon, especially near
shore south of rincon point and below passes and canyons. These
winds could affect the waters out to catalina island at times
until early afternoon, where there may be hazardous swells and
gusty winds in and around avalon harbor. Otherwise and elsewhere,
the winds will remain below SCA levels through Saturday.

Fire weather 13 110 pm.

Moderate santa ana winds combined with single digit humidities
will continue to bring very critical fire weather conditions
across much of los angeles and ventura counties through Wednesday.

The exception will be for the los angeles and ventura county
coasts, and the san gabriel valley where winds will not be as
strong and even a brief seabreeze across the oxnard plain this
afternoon. For the other valleys and mountains, northeast winds
gusting between 35 and 45 mph will decrease to 25 to 35 mph this
evening, then return again late tonight into Wednesday morning.

Winds will slowly decrease Wednesday afternoon with peak gusts in
the 20 to 30 mph range. These offshore winds in combination with
persistent single digit humidities will continue to bring red flag
warning conditions through 5 pm Wednesday for the ventura county
valleys, the los angeles county mountains, santa monica mountains,
santa clarita valley, and san fernando valley. Lax- daggett
gradient peaked at -7.1 mb this morning, and is expected to be
near -5.5 mb Wednesday morning, then -5.1 mb Thursday morning. A
light offshore wind influence will maintain dry conditions across
interior sections Thursday into Friday morning, maintaining
elevated fire weather conditions.

Fire weather conditions through santa barbara and san luis obispo
counties will be elevated through this period with plenty of dry air
along with pockets of gusty east winds expected.

If fire ignition occurs, conditions will be favorable for very rapid fire
spread and extreme fire behavior including long range spotting,
especially today into Tuesday.
