Synopsis 19 917 pm.

Continued warm temperatures through the week with overnight and
morning low clouds and fog along the coast. The humidity level
will lessen but remain above normal into next weekend.

Short term (tdy-wed) 20 312 am.

Three very similar days are slated for the short term. There will
be weak onshore flow both to the north and east each day. Aloft a
positive tilted trof will xtnd from montana to far northern ca
while an upper high slowly moves eastward from az to nm.

Dry SW flow aloft will set up between these two systems over
socal.

Hgts fall form 592dm today to 590dm Tue and wed. MAX temps will
dip a degree or two Tuesday as the hgts fall. Wednesday will not
see much change at all.

Max temps will be pretty close to normal while overnight lows will
remain 3 to 6 degrees above normal.

The weak onshore push will bring low clouds to most of the coasts
each night through morning and since the marine layer 1100 ft deep
there will be local stratus incursions into the lower vlys right
around or even a little after dawn.

The only winds of note will be across the western portion of the
antelope vly and even there the west winds will be well under
advisory criteria.

Long term (thu-sun) 20 320 am.

Weak ridging will build back into the state from the SE Thursday
and this will persist through the weekend. The upper level flow
will remain from the SW so there is no threat of monsoon
transport. Hgts really do not change much and temperatures will
really not change much from day to day either. Weak onshore flow
will keep the night through morning coastal stratus pattern going
although weak sundowners may keep the sba south coast cloud free.

A slightly stronger sundowner might occur Friday and Saturday
nights but it does not look that strong.

Aviation 20 1215z.

At 1100z at klax, the marine layer was around 1700 feet deep. The
top of the inversion was near 3600 feet with a temperature of 27
degrees celsius.

N of point conception... High confidence with lifr ifr CIGS for
coastal tafs this morning through 15z. Then moderate confidence
with timing of stratus to scour out within + - 1 hour from 12z
tafs. High confidence withVFR conds at kprb. 20% chance for ifr
between 14-16z. Moderate confidence with similar timing and
conditions this evening into Tue morning.

S of point conception... Moderate confidence tafs with ifr MVFR
cigs. Lower confidence with timing kbur and kvny ifr low MVFR
cigs. 30% chance that CIGS could scour out + - 2 hours for coastal
areas. Low to moderate confidence with similar timing and
conditions this tonight into Tue morning. 50% chance that cigs
will not develop in coastal valleys.

Good confidence in desert tafs.

Klax... Moderate confidence in taf. There is a 20 percent chc of
ifr CIGS 12z-14z. Good confidence that any east wind component
will be under 5 kt.VFR transition should occur within one hour
of fcst.

Kbur... Low confidence in ifr to low MVFR TAF from 13z-16z with a
40 percent chc of no cigs... Otherwise high confidence.

Marine 20 439 am.

For the outer waters, overall it will remain fairly quiet with nw
winds between 10 to 20 kt strongest in the afternoon and evening
hours. Strongest western portions. There will be a 20-30% chance
for SCA level gusts each late afternoon and evening for areas
between point conception to NW of san nicolas island. The next
decent chance 50% for small craft advisories (sca) should not be
until Wednesday evening between point conception to NW of san
nicolas island. Higher chance for widespread SCA level winds
beginning Thursday afternoon and continuing through late this
week.

For the inner waters, conditions are expected to remain below
small craft advisory levels through Thursday.

Patchy fog, possibly dense at times will continue to form during
the late night and morning hours, especially north of point
conception through at least Wednesday.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.

Hazard potential outlook (wed-sun)
Gusty sundowner winds and elevated fire weather conditions are
possible for late this week.

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