Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 338 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2024

SYNOPSIS
18/226 AM.

Increasing temperatures today, in part due to gusty northeasterly winds this morning for portions of Los Angeles County mountains and foothills. Critical fire-weather conditions are expected through today for northwest Los Angeles County and the Ventura County mountains. Slightly below normal temperatures Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a warming trend away from the coast through the weekend.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-THU)...18/330 AM.

The region will continue to be under a deep broad trough, with heights likely to creep upwards very slowly through Thursday.
Overall minimal change to the upper level pattern through the short term period.

A brief pulse in the broad trough will allow for a short-lived period of enough cold air advection over the interior to develop cooler temperatures inland compared to at the coasts. This temperature difference is quite unseasonable and is reflected in the pressure gradients. While the LAX to DAG pressure gradient is currently slightly onshore at 2.1 mb, by around 5 AM today it is expected to flip to offshore from the northeast by about 1 mb. The offshore gradient will yield advisory level gusts across the western San Gabriel Mountains and adjacent areas, including the I-5 Cooridor and the Post Fire region. Wind gusts of 30-45 mph will be common, with up to around 50 mph for the highest peaks of the western San Gabriel Mountains. NE flow may extend southward to the Santa Monica mountains, and warm the coastal valleys north of the mountains. Winds are likely to fall below advisory level by late morning, and Wnd Advisories are in effect for the I-5 Cooridor, the Western San Gabriel Mountains, the western Antelope Valley Foothills, and the Santa Clarita Valley through 11 AM today.

The currently northwesterly winds will shift to the northeast early this morning and will also continue to support critical fire weather conditions through today (see FIRE WEATHER discussion). The Post Fire burn areas is likely to see a downward trend in winds, however the NW winds will shift to to from the NE in alignment with the San Gabriel Mountains. Smoke from the fire will continue to affect Los Angeles and Ventura Counties today.
Please reference the Air Quality Alert Message for additional information.

Sundowner NW winds across southern Santa Barbara County are expected redevelop this afternoon into late tonight again for the entire Santa Ynez Range and the western portion of the south coast. Wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph will be common, peaking over the higher elevation. Wind Advisories will go into effect for the aforementioned locations starting at 3 PM today and last until late tonight. Sundowner winds will likely return Wednesay and Thursday evening as well, however there is only around a 30% chance of Wind Advisories being needed, as the N-S surface pressure gradients are expected to trend downward.

The offshore flow across the region will lead to an increase in temperatures today. As the LAX to DAG gradient is expected to return to onshore Wednesday, temperatures will cool to a few degrees below normal through Thursday, mostly in the 70s except upper 60s at the beaches and in the 80s and 90s over interior valleys and foothills. In addition, strong northerly flow over the coastal waters is expected to continue, fueled by upper level support and N-S pressure gradients. The nearshore gradient, however, points from south to north and this will turn the winds towards and up the coast forming a persistent Catalina Eddy that will bring marine influence and morning low clouds and fog along the southern coasts.

.LONG TERM (FRI-MON)...18/337 AM.

On Friday the trough is likely to break down. The GFS and ECMWF both agree that the upper level heights will increase rapidly though Saturday as a strong ridge builds in. Heights of 590-592 dam are expected Sunday and Monday, and strong onshore pressure gradients are likely into early next week.

This upper level pattern supports a very shallow marine layer that is likely to cling to the beaches all day. However once out of the marine layer, inland areas will see very warm to hot conditions around 10 degrees above normal. The Antelope Valley is likely to see highs ranging from 100-105 Friday through the weekend, with interior valleys in the mid 90s. At this time, there is around a 10-30% chance of heat-related headlines for the upcoming weekend into early next week.

AVIATION
18/0636Z.

At 0515Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 1600 feet deep. The top of the inversion was at 2000 ft with a temperature of 16 deg C.

Good confidence in TAFs for KSBP, KSBP, KPMD, KWJF and KPRB. At KPMD and KWJF, brief restrictions due to BLDU or FU is possible.

Moderate confidence in TAFs for KSMO, KLAX and KLGB. There is a 30 percent chc of rapid clear before 13Z.

Moderate Confidence in TAFs for KCMA and KSBA with a 25 percent chc of IFR cigs 12Z-17Z.

Low confidence in TAFs for KBUR, KVNY and KOXR with a 40 percent chc of IFR cigs through 16Z.

VFR or MVFR FU or HZ is possible from KSBA and south.

Weak to moderate LLWS is possible through 18Z at KBUR and KSBA.

KLAX...Moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 30 percent chc of clearing before 13Z. Low cloud returns Tuesday evening may be as late as 08Z. There is a 10 percent chance of an east wind component of 8 kts between 10-16Z.

KBUR...Low confidence in TAF. There is a 40 percent chc of BKN008 conds 10Z-16Z. Lgt LLWS is possible through 18Z. There is a 20 percent chc of 01015KT winds from 13Z to 18Z.

MARINE
18/213 AM.

For the Outer Waters, high confidence in current forecast. Small Craft Advisory (SCA) Winds are expected through at least Wednesday night and perhaps as late as Friday. Conditions are expected to be below SCA levels Friday night through Saturday night.

For the Inner Waters north of Point Sal, high confidence in current forecast. SCA level winds will persist through at least Wednesday and probably through Thursday night. The winds will be strongest during the afternoons and evenings. For Friday through Saturday night, winds and seas should remain below SCA levels.

For the Santa Barbara Channel, moderate confidence in current forecast. Winds will mostly be below SCA levels, but during the afternoons and evenings through Friday there will be local SCA level gusts across the western third of the channel. There is a 30 percent chance that the gusts will be widespread enough to warrant a SCA.

South of the SBA Channel, there is a 30% chance for SCA winds Thursday evening. Otherwise, winds and seas will generally be below SCA levels.

BEACHES
17/121 PM.

High surf is no longer expected for the Ventura County beaches.
However, elevated surf conditions and dangerous rip currents will still continue for some west and northwest facing beaches of southwest California through this evening.

FIRE WEATHER
17/240 PM.

The Red Flag Warning for gusty northwest to north winds and low relative humidity for the Interstate-5 corridor in northwest Los Angeles County and the Ventura County mountains is now in effect until 6 PM PDT Tuesday, and includes an expected wind shift to the northeasterly direction between midnight and 6 AM PDT Tuesday.
In these areas -- after northwest to north winds reached the 45-60 mph range last night, with isolated locales to around 65 mph, northwest to north winds will continue gusting to 35 to 55 mph for the rest of today, increasing up to 60 mph tonight.
Between Midnight tonight and 6 AM PDT Tuesday, winds will shift to the north to northeast and gust 40 to 60 mph and then gradually decrease to 25 to 45 mph on Tuesday. With some increase in midlevel moisture, minimum afternoon relative humidity values today will be slightly elevated compared to yesterday -- generally ranging 20-35 percent, today, and locally as low as 15 percent in downslope-flow favored areas. Only poor to moderate overnight recovery to around 25 to 45 percent is expected tonight. Late tonight into Tuesday, relative humidity will quickly fall as very dry air overspreads the region behind a passing midlevel impulse, reaching the single digit readings during the day Tuesday.

In addition, the Red Flag Warning has been extended in areal coverage to include the western San Gabriel Mountains and Highway 14 corridor from Midnight tonight to 6 PM PDT Tuesday, where gusty northeast winds and relative humidity falling to the single digit readings are expected. In these areas -- after occasionally gusty northwest to north winds through this evening, winds will shift to the northeast after midnight with speeds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts to 45 mph, locally 55 mph. Relative humidity is expected to be 20-45 percent tonight falling to 5 to 10 percent Tuesday.

While live fuel moisture readings are still quite high, ample fuel loading of dead fuels has likely contributed to extreme fire behavior with the Post Fire complex, and increasingly favorable meteorological conditions may foster further growth and intensification of this fire complex or any other fires developing in the Red Flag Warning areas. After 6 PM PDT Tuesday, decreasing winds and relative humidity recovery Tuesday night will decrease the critical fire-weather risk.

Elsewhere across the region, the wind shift to the northeast tonight into early Tuesday morning will come with the passage of the impulse, and also with the continued consolidation and deepening of a Catalina Eddy. The same Catalina Eddy driving this Santa Ana wind-type pattern will also draw a thickening marine layer northward across the coasts and coastal valleys including much of the LA Basin. This marine layer will greatly temper relative humidity reductions at the lower elevations, possibly extending as far as the Santa Monica and Santa Susana Mountains and especially the nearby foothills, and the Santa Clarita Valley.
As a result, there is a lot of uncertainty regarding how far the northeasterly wind surge will extend off the San Gabriels and the Ventura County Mountains. Nevertheless, the potential will exist for this wind surge and accompanying deep mixing with very low relative humidity to bring critical fire-weather conditions much farther toward the coast, in a Santa Ana wind-type pattern. Areas south of the western San Gabriels and Ventura County Mountains toward the coast will be closely monitored for possible expansions of Red Flag Warnings (30% chance of further extension), and elevated to brief critical conditions will be a definitive possibility in these areas (60-80% chance).

Elsewhere across the region, the combination of gusty winds, warm temperatures, and low relative humidity will continue to bring elevated fire-weather conditions across the Santa Barbara County interior mountains today and Tuesday.

Areawide on Wednesday, weakening winds will be lessening the fire-weather risk while dry conditions persist across the interior.
