Synopsis
Night through morning low clouds and fog will occur at the
coast and some valleys through Saturday as a weak low pressure
over the area remains in place. The low pressure should deepen
early next week and deepen the marine layer and spread low clouds
and fog farther inland. The low will weaken by midweek for a
temperature warmup into Friday.

Short term (thu-sun)

Update As a weak trough of low pressure is replaced by high
pressure aloft, a stronger inversion is expected near the surface
resulting in better marine layer cloud coverage overnight. A
fairly extensive low cloud layer is expected to push inland later
tonight, covering coastal areas and even some of the coastal
valleys by early Friday morning. Weak offshore trends should bring
similar to slightly higher daytime highs to the area on Friday
for inland areas. Coastal locations are likely to cool by a degree
or two due to the morning cloud coverage and delayed warming.

Little change is expected on Saturday with highs near-normal for
coastal areas and slightly below normal inland.

From previous discussion A trough along the west coast will
deepen Sunday, leading to a deeper marine lyr and a cooling trend.

Could even see some patchy drizzle during the morning hours. The
presence of the upper low aloft and a little bit of mid level
moisture should generate some afternoon clouds over the mountains
but at this time there doesn't appear to be enough moisture to go
with any thunderstorms.

Long term (mon-thu)
the trough will deepen further Monday then weaken tue-thu with
some height thickness rises. Forecast temps Monday still seem a
bit warm given the upper pattern and likely a fairly deep marine
lyr. Then slight warming through mid week but temps still a couple
degrees below normal.

Aviation 18 0600z.

At 06z, the marine layer depth was around 1000 ft deep at klax.

The top of the marine inversion was around 2000 ft with a
temperature near 23 degrees celsius. There was another inversion
up to around 5800 ft.

Low confidence in the current forecast. Through 17z, there is a
chance of lifr to ifr conditions north of point conception and
ifr to MVFR conditions south of point conception.

Klax... There is a 60 percent chance of ifr to MVFR conditions
developing as soon as 08z, or as late as 13z.VFR conditions
should redevelop between 16z and 17z.

Kbur... There is a 30 percent chance of ifr conditions developing
between 13z and 16z.

Marine 17 800 pm.

Moderate to high confidence in the forecast. Winds should remain
below small craft advisory levels through early next week. There
is a 40 percent chance of small craft advisory conditions
developing Friday afternoon and evening across the outer waters
between point conception and san miguel island. There is a 10 to 20
percent chance of small craft advisory conditions across the
western santa barbara and san pedro channels each afternoon and
evening through the weekend.

Lox watches warnings advisories

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.
