SYNOPSIS
15/228 AM.

Dry and warmer conditions will kick in today and continue through next weekend. Low clouds and fog should also affect portions of the coast and valleys during the night and morning hours through the period.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...15/303 AM.

After an atypical cold and wet mid April weekend, the weather will begin to trend back to normal this week. Today dry NW flow will set up between the departing upper low to the east and a building ridge to the NW. North flow will bring plenty of clouds to the north slopes around the Kern County line. Decent onshore flow and residual moisture have teamed up to bring areas of low clouds to portions of the coasts and vlys. The low clouds will not last past mid morning and then after they have dissipated the mid April sunshine and rising hgts will bring 6 to 12 degrees of warming to the area. Ydy's max temps were so cool, however, that today's highs will still end up 4 to 8 degrees blo normal.

Sfc high pressure will build in to the north of the area tonight and the offshore push from the north will increase to about 4 mb.
Since there is no upper support this will only support sub advisory level winds through the northerly passages from the SBA south coast through the VTA mtns and then as far east as the I-5 corridor. The offshore flow from the N and neutral flow in the E/W direction will prevent any low clouds from forming. Hgts will continue to rise and max temps will leap another 5 to 10 degrees.
This warming will push almost all areas to above normal.

The ridge flattens out some on Wednesday and onshore flow to the east increases while the offshore flow from the north relaxes.
This should allow some low clouds to develop across the Central Coast and the Paso Robles area. Max temps will continue to rise across the mtns and interior but the weaker offshore flow will bring an earlier cooling sea breeze and the csts/vlys will cool 1 or 2 degrees.

.LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...15/322 AM.

The ridge really flattens on Thursday and onshore flow increases to the east. A grip of mid and high clouds will move over the area and a deep marine layer will cover the coasts and vlys. The clouds and onshore flow will conspire to lower max temps by 2 to 5 degrees.

The mid and upper level clouds will clear out for Friday but the marine layer clouds will still cover most of the coasts and vlys in the morning. A 7.2 mb onshore push in the afternoon will bring breezy westerly winds to the Antelope Vly in the afternoon. The onshore flow and slightly lower hgts will bring 2 to 4 degrees of cooling to the area. This will bring max temps across the csts and vlys down to 3 to 6 degrees under normals.

The night through morning low cloud pattern will continue Friday and into the weekend. Long range temperature guidance indicates some warming each day but given the 6 to 7 mbs of onshore flow each afternoon would not be surprises if temps near the coast change little day to day.

AVIATION
15/1158Z.
