Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis 18 1245 pm.

A high pressure will build over the region by mid week. Warmer
temperatures mainly inland and gusty conditions are expected in
some coastal areas. Night to morning low clouds will stick around
coastal areas at this time and fair skies elsewhere.

Short term (tdy-thu) 18 142 pm.

Definitely heading into a warm stretch of days as a strong ridge
of high pressure pushes up from the southwest and the trough that
sat over the west coast over the weekend moves off to the east.

We'll see a weakening of the onshore flow this week, significant
lowering of the marine layer depth, and a major warming trend that
will chiefly impact the inland areas but also generate above
normal temps for the coast as well. Difficult to determine still
what day temps will peak, and there might even be a couple peaks
in highs this week as models indicate a slight knock down of the
ridge Thursday as a weak trough moves onshore across the pac nw
then rebuilds later in the week. Highs expected to climb into the
80s for the inland coastal zones, while warmer coastal valleys see
highs in the mid to upper 90s and the antelope valley reaches
around 105.

Not a lot of wind in general as gradients are mostly on the light
side, however there will be a few evenings of northerly winds,
likely just below advisory levels, for southern sb county, mainly
the western portion, starting this evening.

Likely one more night of low clouds for the la ventura valleys
tonight before high pressure shrinks the marine layer depth to
at or below 1000 feet the remainder of the week. Should start to
see patchy dense fog, perhaps as early as tonight for parts of the
central coast, then for coastal areas south of sb county mid to
late week.

Long term (fri-mon) 18 148 pm.

Hot temps, especially inland, expected again fri, possibly
slightly higher than thu, then starting to see some relief over
the weekend as the ridge again gets knocked down with another
trough moving into the great basin and onshore flow increases.

Still above normal temps though for valleys and other interior
areas. After the weekend drop temps should level off with minimal
changes through early next week. Marine layer clouds likely to
push a bit farther inland and linger a little later at the coast
but otherwise clear in most locations by late morning.

Aviation 18 1840z.

At 1707z at klax... The marine layer was 3300 feet deep. The top
of the inversion was at 6500 feet with a temperature of 14 c.

Moderate confidence in 18z tafs. All tafs have cleared this
morning, except for klgb which might take a bit longer to clear
completely. The marine clouds will return again later tonight with
considerably less depth, perhaps 015-020. Ceilings will be either
MVFR or ifr tonight and clear out fairly early on Tuesday morning.

Klax... Moderate confidence in 18z taf. There is a 30 percent
chance of marine clouds arriving plus or minus two or more hours
from the forecasted time.

Kbur... Moderate confidence in 18z taf. There is a 20 percent
chance of marine clouds sneaking into the airfield early Tuesday
morning.

Marine 18 125 pm.

Low end SCA conds likely beginning late this afternoon or early
evening for the outer waters as well as the inner waters adjacent
to the central coast. SCA conds will become more likely and a bit
stronger for the same areas late Tuesday through Thursday or
Friday. In fact there is a 30 percent of gale winds at some point
during this period. Local SCA winds are also likely at times for
western portions of the E santa barbara channel during this time.

A moderate eddy with winds gusting locally up to 15-20 knots is
possible for the inner waters south of point conception each
morning beginning Tuesday.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

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

Small craft advisory in effect until 3 am pdt Tuesday for
zones 670-673-676. (see laxmwwlox).

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

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
