Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 954 AM PST Thu Dec 5 2019

SYNOPSIS. 05/657 AM.

Lingering moisture in place will continue cool and cloudy weather with a few showers this morning, then another storm system will move over the region between Friday and Saturday. Showers could linger into Sunday, then high pressure aloft building in should bring a warming and drying trend into next week.

SHORT TERM (TDY-SAT). 05/953 AM.

Lots of lingering low level moisture and light south flow will maintain plenty of clouds in place today, especially in places that are near south and southwest facing mountains. There's even been some light showers reported near Vandenberg AFB this morning and suspect that's not the only place with light precip. It's sunnier in LA County and across the interior but temps today will remain below normal despite the sunshine.

Forecast for Friday and the weekend looks drippy. Much weaker than the last couple of systems but enough to create damp conditions, especially SLO/SB Counties but likely at least a tenth or two in LA County when it's all said and done.

***From previous discussion***

A storm system near 41N and 140W will move toward the North Coast of California through late Saturday night or Sunday morning. Model solutions disagree some on the amounts of precipitation, but all GEFS/ECMWF solutions continue to suggest rainfall occurring across the area between Friday night and Saturday night as the system taps into subtropical moisture. While the GEFS solutions take a drier approach, a majority of ECMWF ensemble members continue to suggest a wetter pattern developing and have been consistent in doing so with similar amounts. In addition, the moisture source is coming in from the southwest of the region, which model solutions have traditionally not modeled too well based upon past history. PoPs have increased in the latest forecast and will likely need to be increased further. QPF values has been bumped up as well, more closely inline with a blend of NBM and WPC estimates. Generally, a quarter to half inch or rainfall should expected between Friday night and Saturday night south of Point Conception, with up to three-quarters of inch to one and one half inches north of Point Conception. Snow levels with this system will quite be high, above 6000 feet as the system's coldest air will move north of the area. A wind advisory could be added for portions of the mountains and along the Central Coast later today for tonight through Saturday or Saturday night as winds could reach advisory thresholds.

LONG TERM (SUN-WED). 05/310 AM.

Lingering showers should continue across the region into Sunday, especially along the northern slopes of the mountains as a shortwave trough dives south in the broader trough circulation. There is a chance that gusty northerly winds could develop through the Interstate 5 Corridor and across southern Santa Barbara County on Sunday night.

Models continue to offer a warming and drying trend for the early-to-middle part of next week as high pressure builds in. Temperatures have been nudged a tad higher between Tuesday and next Thursday.

AVIATION. 05/1638Z.

At 1630Z, there was no marine inversion at KLAX. However, there was a deep moist layer up to 10000 feet.

Overall, moderate confidence in 18Z TAF package. For sites north of Point Conception, there is a 30% chance of MVFR CIGs this afternoon. For tonight, moderate confidence in development of MVFR CIGs after 03Z, but low confidence in timing.

For sites south of Point Conception, there is a 30% chance of MVFR CIGs after 06Z.

MARINE. 05/838 AM.

There is a 60% chance of winds reaching Gale force Friday and Friday night across PZZ670/673. So, a GALE WATCH remains in effect for the two northern zones. On Sunday, there is a 50% chance of SCA level winds across PZZ673/676.

For the Inner Waters north of Point Sal, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. High confidence in winds and seas increasing to SCA levels on Friday and continuing through Saturday evening. There is a 50% chance of Gale force winds on Friday, So, a GALE WATCH remains in effect. For Sunday and Monday, high confidence in winds and seas remaining below SCA levels.

For the Inner Waters south of Point Conception, moderate to high confidence in current forecast.

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