Synopsis
An upper high pressure will bring a slight warming trend through
Saturday. A weak upper low is expected Sunday through mid week
with a little cooling. There will be areas of night through
morning low clouds and fog along most coasts and in some valleys
through early next week. Monsoonal moisture may bring some showers
and thunderstorms to the mountains and deserts Monday and
Tuesday.

Short term (tdy-sun)
12z models are in good synoptic agreement through the period. At
upper levels, elongated ridge will build slightly over the area
through Saturday then weaken a bit on Sunday. Near the surface, a
general weak to moderate onshore flow will prevail with a little
bit of a northerly gradient this evening and again Friday evening.

Forecast-wise, the weekend should be rather quiet and typical of
late july. The main forecast issue will be the coverage of the
marine layer stratus. At this time, will expect the marine
inversion to remain quite shallow through Saturday with possibly a
slight deepening on Sunday. So, stratus fog will likely only
impact the coastal plain through Sunday although some stratus
could slip into the san gabriel valley Sunday morning.

Temperatures will exhibit a modest warming trend through Saturday,
reaching a few degrees above seasonal normals. On Sunday, there
will likely be a couple degrees of cooling on Sunday, but still
remaining a couple degrees above seasonal normals for most areas.

As for winds, do not anticipate any significant issues. The high
resolution models indicate sba-smx bottoming out around -2.5 mb
tonight and Friday night. So, there will be some locally gusty
northerly wind across the south coast of santa barbara county the
next couple of evening, but no widespread advisory-level winds are
anticipated (although the refugio raws will likely be pretty
gusty).

Long term (mon-thu)
overall, 00z models in good synoptic agreement through the period.

At upper levels, center of ridge will meander around the four
corners area. Near the surface, weak onshore flow will continue.

Forecast-wise, main concern for the extended will be the potential
for some monsoonal moisture. At this time, mid-level flow turns
southeast to south which will be favorable for some monsoonal
moisture to move into the area. At this time, the moisture still
looks to be rather high-based, so chances of any significant
thunderstorm activity is minimal. However, there will be a slight
chance (15-20%) of thunderstorms over the mountains and desert
areas in the afternoon evening hours on Monday and Tuesday. If any
thunderstorms do develop, they will likely not produce a lot of
rain due to the forecast moisture profile. So, gusty outflow winds
and dry lightning would be the main potential threats. For
Wednesday and Thursday, the flow turns more southwesterly which
will shunt any moisture to the east, limiting any thunderstorm
chances.

Otherwise, the marine layer will continue to impact the coastal
plain through the period. As for temperatures, expect minor
fluctuations from day-to-day, but still at or slightly above
seasonal normals.

Aviation 20 1800z.

At 18z, the marine layer depth was around 1700 ft deep at klax.

The top of the marine inversion was around 2200 ft with a
temperature of 20 degrees celsius.

Lifr to ifr conditions will spread into primarily coastal
terminals after 03z and through 10z. Conditions should improve
one category between 14z and 16z withVFR conditions redeveloping
similar to today.

Klax... Ifr conditions will spread into klax between 08z and
through 12z. Conditions should improve one category between 14z
and 16z withVFR conditions redeveloping around 17z.

Kbur...VFR conditions are expected throughout the period. There is
a 10 percent chance of MVFR conditions between 10z and 16z.

Marine 20 300 pm.

High confidence that small craft advisory winds will continue
through at least Saturday and possibly through Sunday across the
outer waters. There is a 20 percent chance of gale force winds
this afternoon and evening, increasing to 30 percent on Friday
afternoon and evening, mainly northwest of the channel islands.

For the nearshore waters north of point conception, small craft
advisory level winds will likely continue through Friday evening.

There is a 40 percent chance that winds could drop below criteria
between 3 am and 9 am pdt Friday, but winds will increase by the
afternoon hours at the latest.

For the inner waters south of point conception, winds and seas
are expected to generally remain below advisory level through the
weekend; however, local winds gusts up to 25 knots could occur in
the vicinity of the channel islands each afternoon and evening
through Friday evening.

Beaches 20 205 pm.

The national hurricane center indicates an 80-90 percent chance
of tropical cyclone formation off the mexican coast by early next
week. A wind-driven swell from one or two tropical cyclones could
develop and bring the potential for strong rip currents and
elevated-to-high surf for southern california beaches for mid-to-
late week next week.

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

Pz... Small craft advisory in effect until 9 pm pdt Friday for zone
645. (see laxmwwlox).

Small craft advisory in effect until 9 pm pdt Saturday for
zones 670-676. (see laxmwwlox).

Small craft advisory in effect until 3 am pdt Sunday for zone
673. (see laxmwwlox).

Hazard potential outlook (sun-thu)
no significant hazards are expected during this period.
