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 24 808 am.

A trough currently over the pacific will be moving into central
california this weekend. Mostly cloudy skies are expected through
early Saturday in most areas, but partly cloudy over the valleys.

A chance of showers in the northern parts of the CWA tonight and
Friday. Night to morning low clouds and drizzle elsewhere. Expect
cool temperatures through Saturday when the warming rend begins.

Short term (tdy-sun) 24 151 pm.

Deep marine layer to continue through at least Saturday as a low
pressure system moves through california. Likely very slow
clearing again Friday and for some areas Saturday before the
trough slides east and some ridging develops Sunday and into early
next week. With the deep marine layer we'll also see areas of
drizzle or even light rain in some places, especially up north
closer to the upper low and in the foothills of eastern la county.

Rain amounts will be light but could total a tenth to a quarter
inch in upslope areas. Highs will remain 4-8 degrees below normal
as well.

After the low passes we'll also see some gusty sundowner winds
developing across SRN sb county. Could be some gusty winds
developing as early as Friday across the far western portion but
then stronger and more widespread Saturday afternoon and evening
as better upper support arrives and gradients are stronger.

With the trough moving east of the area by late Saturday a warming
trend will begin Sunday with more traditional marine layer
clearing times. Highs expected to climb 5-10 degrees Sunday with
more sunshine and weaker onshore flow.

Long term (mon-thu) 24 155 pm.

The warming trend will continue through Tuesday with highs
climbing back to normal and even a few degrees above normal for
interior areas. By mid week the ridge shifts east and another
trough arrives on the west coast so temps will cool and the marine
layer will deepen.

Aviation 24 1759z.

At 1741z, the marine inversion at klax was around 3900 ft deep. The
top of the inversion was around 5800 feet with a temperature of 11
deg c.

Moderate confidence overall in the 18z tafs. Low clouds with MVFR
conditions will persist into this afternoon for most coast and vly
airfields before improving toVFR mid to late afternoon into the
early evening. Low clouds with mostly MVFR conditions can be
expected to redevelop at the coastal and vly airfields this evening
to later tonight then persist thru late Fri morning. There is
uncertainty in the timing of the improvement toVFR this afternoon
and development of MVFR CIGS tonight which could be off + - two or
more hours.

For kwjf and kpmd, there is hi confidence inVFR tafs thru fri
morning. Gusty SW winds will affect these airfields this afternoon
and evening as well, with some gusty winds expected to linger at
times overnight into Fri morning.

Klax... Moderate confidence overall in the 18z taf. Low clouds with
MVFR CIGS can be expected thru early this afternoon then improve to
vfr into early this evening. The CIGS should then lower to MVFR aft
about 02z then persist thru Fri morning before improving toVFR aft
about 18z fri. There is uncertainty in the timing of the improvement
toVFR this afternoon and development of MVFR CIGS tonight which
could be off + - two or more hours.

Kbur... Moderate confidence overall in the 18z taf. Low clouds with
MVFR conditions can be expected through about 00z with cigs
improving toVFR thru the evening. Low clouds with MVFR CIGS should
redevelop around 08z then persist thru Fri morning. There is a 30%-
40% chance the low clouds may not improve toVFR this afternoon and
early evening. There is also uncertainty in the timing of the
improvement toVFR late this afternoon and development of MVFR cigs
tonight which could be off + - two or more hours.

Marine 24 145 pm.

For the outer waters, generally high confidence in the current
forecast. Winds and seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels through at least Friday. There is a 60% chance of small
craft advisory level northwest winds across the southern portion
of the outer waters from point conception to san nicolas island
from Friday night through Sunday night. There is also a 60% chance
of advisory level gusts for the northern portion of the outer
waters from Saturday afternoon through Sunday night.

For the inner waters, generally high confidence in the current
forecast. For the waters north of point sal, winds and seas will
remain below SCA levels through Monday, except for a 40% chance
of SCA level winds Saturday afternoon and evening.

For the waters south of point conception, winds and seas will
remain below SCA levels through Friday. For Friday night through
Saturday night, there is a 60 percent chance of SCA level winds
at times, especially across western portions.

A long period southerly swell will continue to move through the
coastal waters through early Friday. Locally rough conditions may
occur at local harbor entrances, especially those with southerly
exposure.

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