Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 341 PM PDT Sun Apr 14 2024

SYNOPSIS
14/158 PM.

Showers with a slight chance of thunderstorms will persist through this afternoon across much of the region. Some snow showers and wintry conditions are expected at higher elevations through this afternoon as well. Dry and warmer weather can then be expected starting Monday and continue into next weekend. Marine layer low clouds and fog should also affect the coast and some valleys during the night and morning hours starting Monday night.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...14/152 PM.

A 554 dam H5 upper level low was just N of SLO County early this afternoon and is forecast to move SE just N of VTU/L.A. Counties this afternoon before quickly exiting the region this evening. H5 temps in the -22 to -25 deg C range will move over the area this afternoon with the upper level low, and along with cyclonic flow aloft and heating from the strong April sunshine, will destabilize the atmosphere further, promoting the formation of additional showers and possible thunderstorms across the region thru the rest of the day. Any heavier showers and thunderstorms could produce heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds. Dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning can be expected with any thunderstorms as well.

This is a more convective pattern than yesterday which means precip will be more showery with some sunny breaks, but most areas should at least get some additional precipitation, generally a half inch or less, but locally higher amounts up to an inch will be possible, especially where any heavier showers and thunderstorms occur.

Snow levels should be around 4500 feet this afternoon and could lower to as low as 3500-4000 feet in heavier showers. Due to additional snowfall and some gusty winds, the Winter Weather Advisory for the higher mountain will continue until 5 PM. Please see the latest Winter Weather Message (LAXWSWLOX) for further details.

There should be some leftover north slope showers tonight along with gusty NW winds in these areas. Otherwise, dry and warmer weather is expected across the forecast area Monday through Wednesday as upper level ridging slowly builds into the forecast area.

Mostly clear skies should develop in most areas by Mon afternoon, altho some marine layer low clouds could affect the VTU/L.A.
County coast later Mon night into Tue morning and again later Tue night into Wed morning. Low clouds are also expected to move out of the southern San Joaquin Vly and into interior SLO/SBA Counties Mon night into Tue morning, with patchy low clouds in some of these areas Tue night into Wed morning.

Some breezy to gusty NW to N winds are possible across interior areas and mtns tonight thru Tue night thanks to increasing northerly pressure gradients.

Temps will turn warmer each day through Wed. Highs for Mon are expected to reach the upper 60s to low 70s from the inland coast to the lower mtns and deserts, then increase to the 70s to low 80s for Tue and Wed which is about 4-8 deg above normal.

.LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...14/153 PM.

The EC and GFS mean ensembles are in generally good agreement thru the extended period, while the deterministic models are not in as good agreement especially later in the extended period.
Upper level ridging will weaken and flatten Thu, with weak upper level troffiness for the most part Fri and Sat followed by weak upper level ridging into Sun, altho the EC was slightly stronger showing this.

Skies are expected to be mostly clear Thu thru Sun, altho some hi clouds could move in Thu for partly cloudy skies at times. There is also a good chance the marine layer pattern will be in place with varying amounts of night and morning low clouds and fog affecting several coastal areas thru Thu then expand along much of the coast and inland Fri thru Sun.

Temps are expected to be about 4-8 deg above normal for many inland areas Thu thru Sun, but for the coast and adjacent vlys it should be turning a few degrees cooler than normal during the period. High temps for the inland coast, vlys and lower mtns should reach the 70s to near 80. For the Antelope Vly, highs each day are expected to be in the lower to mid 80s.
