Synopsis 13 658 pm.

Offshore flow beneath high pressure aloft will keep a dry weather
pattern in place through the end of the week. Onshore flow will
establish over the weekend as a trough of low pressure approaches
the california coast. A return of the low clouds and fog could
occur as soon as Friday at the coast.

Short term (tdy-fri) 14 250 am.

High clouds were pulling out of the area and skies will be mostly
sunny today. The kdag gradient was -4.5 mb which is 1.6 mb weaker
than it was ydy at this time. The kbfl grad was -3.2 mb which is
2.3 mb more offshore than it was 24 hours ago. Low end advisory
level wind gusts will continue across the much of the mtn and vly
areas of la and vta counties. The airmass continues to warm and
along with the continued offshore flow todays temps will be a
degree or two warmer than ydys. The winds will slack off this
afternoon and will finally allow the red flag warnings to expire.

Very low humidities will keep elevated fire weather danger gong
through Thursday.

The gradients will relax enough on Thursday to allow for a better
sea breeze and this will cool the coasts and to a lesser degree
the vlys. A small ridge will build in and the rising hgts will
bring a couple of degrees of warming to the interior. There are
quite a few clouds out across the east pacific and skies may be
a little cloudier than fcst.

Gradients are still offshore Friday morning but are on the weak
side. The NAM shows some marine layer moisture sneaking up the
coast and there may be some stratus in the lax-lgb area in the
morning. By the afternoon there is onshore flow both to the north
and the east. Hgts will fall through the day as the ridge weakens.

The lower hgts and the onshore flow will bring cooling to the
entire area but ESP across the coasts and vlys.

Long term (sat-tue) 14 303 am.

The upper flow flattens out over the weekend and hgts fall a
little more. There will be enough mid and high level clouds
embedded in the flow to create partly cloudy skies. At the lower
levels there will be enough onshore flow and low level marine
moisture to create a night through morning low clouds regime for
most of the coasts. MAX temps will cool further Saturday and then
change little on Sunday. MAX temps will be close to normals both
days.

The flow pattern changes next week. On Monday and upper low zips
southward just off the ca coast and into mexico. It will bring
marine layer clouds in the morning to the coasts and maybe the
lower vlys as well as partly cloudy skies in the mid and high
levels. Temps will likely not change much.

The mdls really continue to struggle past Monday. The only thing
the ec and GFS agree on for Tuesday is that it will not rain.

Otherwise the GFS brings in a weak ridge while the ec brings a
cooler trof to the area. Left a pretty generic fcst in place with
partly cloudy skies, morning stratus across the coasts and vlys
and near normal temps.

Past day seven chaos reigns. The ec and GFS are 180 degrees out of
phase. The once wet ec is now dry and the once dry GFS is now wet.

The now wet GFS at 00z was wet starting Wed but the 06z run hold
the rain off until Thu but really more like Friday. All of which
goes to say that no one knows whats going happen after Tuesday.

Aviation 14 1101z.

At 1100z at klax, there was no marine inversion.

High confidence in the 12z tafs.VFR conditions will prevail
throughout the 24-hour forecast period.

Klax... High confidence in the 12z taf.VFR conditions will
prevail throughout the 30-hour forecast period.

Kbur... High confidence in the 06z taf.VFR conditions will
prevail throughout the forecast period. There is also a 20% chance
of llws at times through 15z

Marine 14 236 am.

For the outer waters... Generally hi confidence in the current
forecast through at least Saturday where no small craft advisory
(sca) is expected.

For the inner waters north of point conception... Generally hi
confidence in the current forecast. Conditions are expected to
remain below SCA levels through Saturday.

For the inner waters south of point conception... Generally
moderate confidence in the current forecast. There is a 40%
chance of SCA level NE wind gusts through late this morning,
especially near shore south of rincon point to malibu. There is a
30% chance that these winds could affect the waters out to
catalina island at times until early afternoon, where there may be
hazardous swells and gusty winds in and around avalon harbor.

Otherwise and elsewhere, the winds will remain below SCA levels
through Saturday.

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