Synopsis
Gusty northerly winds will continue through Friday for portions
of southwest california. High pressure aloft will gradually build
into the region through early next week. This combined with
offshore flow will support the warmest conditions this weekend
with cooling likely early next week as winds shift onshore.

Short term (tdy-fri)
latest fog product imagery indicated little in the way of stratus
this morning. However, the persistent northerly flow continued to
cause some clouds to bank up against the northern slopes of the
la/vtu/sba county mtns. A few sprinkles are not out of the
question across these areas this morning. More clouds should
develop across some of the interior slo valleys around dawn for a
few hours. With the NW flow, some standing lenticular clouds
developed early Tuesday morning on the leeward side of the
tehachapi mtns and brought a decent amount of high clouds over
much of la county yesterday and this could continue into today.

There will continue to be variable high clouds across the forecast
area over the next few days, but mostly sunny for most areas.

The main story over the next several days will be the continued
northerly wind episodes through at least this weekend. This
pattern is due to the broad NW upper flow over the western states
and inside slider disturbances moving through the region into the
great basin. Continued gusty NW to N winds are expected for the
same areas that have already been affected. Wind advisories will
continue across la/vtu/sba county mtns, sba south coast, antelope
valley, santa clarita valley and the central coast. These areas
will experience wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph for the next few
days. NW to N winds will peak this evening across the la/vtu
county mtns and antelope valley where isolated gusts around 55 to
60 mph will be possible. Winds are expected to continue across
these same areas through Friday morning before turning offshore.

Areas not under an advisory but still quite gusty will include the
san fernando valley and west los angeles to hollywood as north
winds could bring local gusts to 35 mph to these areas.

As far as temperatures... Expect widespread warming 3-12 degrees
with best warming expected across interior areas including the
antelope valley for today. A few degrees of cooking expected on
Thursday as another disturbance will move just north of the area.

With weak offshore expected on Friday, some modest warming
expected into the mid to upper 80s Friday.

Long term (sat-tue)
models are indicating an unseasonable moderate offshore wind
event for Saturday as a large upper trough digs into az/nm. This
will set up a pretty strong offshore gradient. Expect high temps
to reach the lower 90s in the la/vtu coastal valleys with
widespread mid to upper 80s across la/vtu coastal areas. Not
likely a record setting event but still 15-20 degrees above
normal. Would like to see a little better support aloft for
advisory level northeast winds but gradients alone might be enough
to generate 30-40 mph gusts in the favored areas. Cooler conds
expected for areas N of point conception, but still quite
pleasant... Especially across the central coast.

Gradients quickly reverse Sunday so basically just a one day heat
event for coastal areas. Valleys will cool but still well into
the 80s. Then temps leveling off through early next week at near
to slightly above normal levels as onshore flow returns and quite
possibly some marine lyr clouds for some coastal areas mon/tue.

Aviation 26/0000z...

at 1800z, the marine layer top was 1500 feet deep. The top of the
inversion was at 1700 feet with a temperature of 25 degrees
celcius.

High confidence in moderate to strong west to northwest winds
across the forecast area through the period... Shifting to the
north to northeast during the overnight to morning hours for the
l.A. Coast and valley site. Moderate confidence in wind strength
and direction as gusty winds shift between the directions
mentioned. Low level wind shear and turbulence are expected in
most locations.

Klax... Moderate confidence in the 00z taf.VFR conds expected but
wind speeds and direction are likely to be variable. There is a
10 percent chance of east winds greater than 8 knots early
Wednesday morning.

Kbur... Moderate confidence in the 00z taf. There is a 30% chance
of llws/turbulence through the period.

Marine 25/800 pm
for the outer waters, high confidence in current forecast. Strong
northwest winds are anticipated to continue through the week.

Currently, a gale warning is in effect through late Wednesday
night. There is a 70% chance that gale force winds will continue
through Friday and a gale watch is in effect from late Wednesday
night through Friday afternoon.

For the inner waters, moderate confidence in current forecast. A
gale warning is in effect through late tonight for the inner
waters south of point conception, mainly affecting the western
portions. Otherwise, strong small craft advisory (sca) level
winds are expected each afternoon/evening in zone 645 through
Friday with a 30% chance of gale force wind gusts developing. Due
to strong winds throughout the waters, seas will be very choppy
this week, making for hazardous boating conditions through the
week.

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.
