Synopsis 19 917 pm.

Continued warm temperatures through the week with overnight and
morning low clouds and fog along the coast. The humidity level
will lessen but remain above normal into next weekend.

Short term (mon-thu) 19 921 pm.

High pressure aloft over southern california will weaken and
retreat to the south and east as a trough of low pressure off the
pacific northwest coast will dig into the northern great basin
through Wednesday. Stronger onshore flow and a slightly deeper
marine layer developing over the next couple of days will bring
some cooling to the region, but temperatures will likely remain on
the warmer side of normal for this time of year.

As the ridge retreats back into the sonoran desert, southeast flow
aloft will increase monsoonal moisture across the region. At the
current time, the best moisture and instability will remain south
and east of the area and no mentionable pops have been added. A
few cloud build-ups are possible across the mountains the next
couple of days.

***from previous discussion***
by Wednesday, the temperatures will nudge up a couple degrees
across inland areas.

Other short term concern will be gusty onshore winds across
interior sections each afternoon and evening from Monday through
Wednesday, as upper level ridge breaks down, and onshore gradients
increase. Onshore winds will be gusting 25 to 35 mph across
interior sections, strongest in the antelope valley, where
isolated gusts as high as 45 mph can be expected near lake
palmdale. These gusty onshore winds combined with lower
humidities will bring elevated fire weather concerns to interior
sections Monday through Wednesday.

Long term (fri-mon) 19 202 pm.

Some weak upper level ridging is expected to build across sw
california Thursday into Friday which could lead to a diminished
marine layer influence and a couple degrees of warming across
interior sections. Then by next weekend, long range models show
the upper level ridge breaking down as southwest upper level
flow increases across the region, bringing the potential for
increased higher level clouds. During the extended period,
the main weather concern will be the potential for gusty
sundowner winds and associated elevated fire weather threat
each night across southern sba county, as GFS model showing
pressure gradients between -3 and -4 mb each evening between
santa barbara and santa maria.

Aviation 20 0702z.

At 0545z at klax, the marine layer was around 1100 feet deep. The
top of the inversion was near 4200 feet with a temperature of 27
degrees celsius.

Moderate confidence in coastal tafs flight cat transitions could
be off by + - 90 minutes. There is a 30 percent chc of ifr conds
at sites with MVFR CIGS forecast.

Low confidence in kbur and kvny with a 40 percent chc of lifr cigs
14z-17z.

Good confidence in desert tafs.

Low confidence in kprb TAF with a 40 percent chc of lifr conds
10z-16z.

Klax... Fairly good confidence in taf. There is a 20 percent chc
of ifr CIGS 10z-15z. Good confidence that any east wind component
will be under 5 kt.VFR transition should occur within 30 min of
fcst.

Kbur... Low confidence in TAF from 12z-16z with a 40 percent chc
of no cigs... Otherwise high confidence.

Marine 19 853 pm.

For the outer waters, a small craft advisory remains in effect
through late tonight between point conception and northwest of
san nicolas island including the outer channel islands. There is
a 30-50 percent chance of small craft advisory level winds each
afternoon and night through Wednesday.

For the inner waters, conditions are expected to remain below
small craft advisory levels through Thursday.

Patchy fog, possibly dense at times will continue to form during
the late night and morning hours, especially north of point
conception through at least Wednesday.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory in effect until 3 am pdt early this
morning for zones 673-676. (see laxmwwlox).
