Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 211 PM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. 07/205 PM.

Night through morning low clouds and fog with below normal temperatures will continue across the coasts and portions of the valleys through next week. Interior areas will warm to near normal Sunday through Tuesday with little change through Thursday. Possible warm up for the end of next week.

SHORT TERM (TDY-MON). 07/153 PM.

A very weak upper level low will spin over north-central California through Saturday, then get nudged to the west Sunday and Monday by a building high over northern Mexico. This will bring warming to the mountains and interior valleys over the weekend, pushing temperatures back up to around normal for this time of the year by Sunday or Monday. This includes daytime temperatures near 100 in the hottest spots. Coastal plains and valleys will be moved by the whims of the marine layer, which threw us a big curveball this morning. While confidence is low, looking to the dying northwest winds over SBA County and little change in the onshore pressure gradients as reason to believe clouds will form in a more uniform and predictable fashion. If this assumption proves correct, low clouds and fog should push across nearly all coastal areas and about half of the coastal valleys. This would result in little change to the temperatures between today and early next week, with high temperatures running around 3 degrees below normal. Locally gusty Sundowner winds should affect southwest SBA County tonight, well below Advisory however, then take a break through at least Monday. Typically breezy but sub-Advisory winds will also affect interior areas each afternoon and evening.

LONG TERM (TUE-FRI). 07/210 PM.

Tuesday is looking very similar to Monday, with the upper level high centered over northern Mexico still supporting near normal conditions over the interior, while modest onshore flow drives slightly cooler than normal conditions at the coast. Computer projections differ for Wednesday and Thursday, along with a decent spread in their ensembles, between the ridge flatten out with a cooling trend and the ridge expanding with a warming trend. There is more agreement for Friday into the following weekend, with good consensus towards a widespread and gradual warming trend. Also expecting northwest winds to reform over SBA County by Tuesday or Wednesday nights, which should help deepen the marine layer over LA County, and decrease it over SBA and Ventura Counties. No appreciable threat of any monsoonal surge or significant winds for the next 7 to 10 days.

AVIATION. 07/1924Z.

At 1730z at KLAX . The inversion was around 2100 feet. The top of the inversion was around 4100 feet with a temperature of about 18 degrees Celsius.
