Synopsis
It will be dry today with above normal temperatures across l.A.

Anf ventura counties and near normal temps elsewhere. Light rain
will develop across slo and most of santa barbara county tonight.

Thursday will be cooler and breezy while Friday through the
weekend will see significent warning trend.

Short term (tdy-fri)
clear skies in place over the area courtesy of a weak ridge and
offshore flow. The ridge is toppling over the east in response to
arrival of a large gulf of alaska low. This low will likely bring
enough mid and high clouds to the area this afternoon to make the
skies partly cloudy. The offshore flow and slightly above normal
500 mb hgts will bring MAX temps that are 4 to 8 degrees above
normal today south of point conception. Lowering hgts and an
afternoon return to onshore flow will keep MAX temps across slo
and sba counties near normal.

The trof will move over the area tonight and a weak cold front
will move across slo and most of sba county. There will be a
sudden and quick reversal of the sfc gradients. Low clouds will
likely develop over the vta and la county coasts. The cold front
will bring showers to slo county and likely to most of sba county.

Most areas that recieve rain will recieve less than a tenth of an
inch. The coastal sections of slo county may see a couple of
tenths and as always the extreme NW tip of slo county could see a
half inch of rain.

By Thursday morning the front should be mostly out of the area.

The only chc of rain will be over the north slopes of the mtns.

Snow levels will be between 5500 and 6000 feet. Accumulations seem
pretty unlikely at this point. The passing trof will bring enough
lift to create a threat of morning drizzle along with the marine
layer stratus across the la vta coasts. There will be some cooling
across slo and sba counties as cooler air pours in behind the
trof. But there will be major 10 to 15 degree drop in MAX temps
across vta and la counties. The cool air behind the front will
generate breezy NW winds across the area and the mtns along with
antelope vly will like need some low end wind advisories.

The northwest winds will turn to the north Thursday evening as sfc
high pressure moves eastward north of the area. There will be the
usual sundowner and i-5 corridor winds but with the bulk of the
cold air advection already over the winds will likely remain under
advisory levels.

Fast dry NW flow sets up over the area on Friday. There will
likely be enough high level clouds in the flow to make skies
partly cloudy. There will be week offshore flow but the hgts will
still be low enough to only allow a few degrees of warming from
Thursdays readings.

Long term (sat-tue)
it looks like quite a nice weekend with both the ec and gfs
forecasting a 582 dm ridge over the area. At the sfc a great basin
high will bring weak offshore flow to the area... Just enough to
keep the stratus away and bring a warming trend while weak enough
to keep any morning winds under advisory levels. MAX temps will
jump 4 to 8 degrees each day and it looks like there will be a
number of 80 degree plus readings on Sunday with MAX temps 10 to
15 degrees above normal.

The GFS and ec begin to diverge on Monday but not enough to make
any differences for the day which looks like it will continue to
be rather warm with MAX temps similar to Sunday.

The ec and the GFS do not much agree on Tuesday but both indicate
dry conditions with a cooling trend of 5 to 10 degrees.

Aviation
Will be issued shortly.

Marine
23 745 pm
for the outer waters, good confidence in current forecast. Winds
and seas will remain below small craft advisory (sca) levels
through Wednesday night. From Thursday through Sunday, high
confidence in both winds and seas increasing to SCA levels.

For the inner waters, good confidence in current forecast. For the
waters north of point sal, winds and seas are expected to remain
below SCA levels through Thursday. On Friday and Friday night,
seas are expected to increase to SCA levels. For the waters south
of point conception, winds and seas are expected to remain below
sca levels. However, there is a 30% chance of SCA level winds
Thursday afternoon evening across western sections.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.

Hazard potential outlook (fri-tue)
gusty advisory-strength winds are possible Thursday and Friday
over the mountains and southern santa barbara county, possibly
impacting travel. Gusty santa ana winds could develop over next
weekend increasing the risk of fire.

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.
