Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 519 AM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

SYNOPSIS
17/345 AM.

Temperatures will gradually trend downwards in most areas this upcoming week, following the warm to hot conditions this weekend.
Strong northwest to north winds will impact the Central Coast through interior sections of Santa Barbara County to the Antelope Valley through Monday night, with fire weather concerns.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...17/519 AM.

Good eddy circulation in progress across the inner waters. The marine layer has deepened to about 2000 ft, and clouds have surged northward from coastal L.A. County into the valleys and into VTU County as well. By daybreak, expect low clouds in all coastal and most valley areas of L.A./VTU Counties with the possible exception of the Santa Clarita Valley and some of the interior valley locations of VTU County. There is even a chance that low clouds will push into southeastern coastal sections of SBA County, but that remains in doubt given the strong offshore N-S gradients across SBA County. N of Pt. Conception, skies were clear. Some patchy low clouds and fog may form in southern portions of the Central Coast and the Santa Ynez Valley by morning.

Any low clouds N of Pt Conception should dissipate quickly this morning. Across VTU/L.A. Counties, clouds will clear more slowly today, generally by mid to late morning in the valleys and by early afternoon across the coastal plain. High res models suggest that clouds could linger at the beaches today, which is entirely possible given the strength of the onshore gradient between KLAX and KDAG both currently, and during this afternoon. Early this morning, strong N-S gradients continued to produce strong NW-N winds across much of southwestern SBA County, the mountains of interior SBA County eastward thru the mtns of L.A. County, including the I-5 Corridor, in the Antelope Valley foothills, and in the Santa Clarita Valley. There were still some local High Wind Warning levels gusts in the mtns and thru the I-5 Corridor, but winds were mostly at advisory levels in these areas. Winds had dropped below advisory levels on the Central Coast and in much of the Antelope Valley.

An unseasonably strong and cold upper low was moving thru eastern Oregon early this morning and it will push into Idaho and western Montana later today. A sharpening trough axis extending S from this low will push across the area today. Behind this trough, NW flow aloft will increase and there will be increasing subsidence across the area. In addition, there will be some weak cold advection. This should translate to an increase in northwesterly winds across the forecast area this afternoon/evening. Given this expected bump up in winds again this afternoon/evening, will keep the warnings and advisories as is. With lowering heights and thicknesses, increasing onshore gradients between KLAX and KDAG, and lots of low clouds this morning, expect several degrees of cooling in most areas today. The exception will be across southern SBA County, where gusty north winds may bring a few degrees of warming late this afternoon and early this evening.

Low level flow will turn more northeasterly across L.A./VTU Counties late tonight, with gradients between KLAX and KDAG actually turning weakly offshore. N-S gradients across SBA County will begin to weaken tonight. This should cause the NW winds to drop below advisory/warning levels in most areas by late tonight.
NE flow at 850 mb will actually briefly increase to 40 to 45 kt across portions of L.A. County/eastern VTU County Tue morning, with a corresponding increase in surface winds, similar to a Santa Ana wind event. Expect a period of strong to possibly advisory level NE winds in the mtns of L.A. County and possibly eastern Ventura County Tue morning.

In coastal and valley areas, the forecast is more challenging, and it all depends on the marine layer tonight. At this point, it is expected that low clouds will push into coastal and at least the lower valley areas of L.A./VTU Counties. Where there are low clouds, the winds would have to erode the stubborn marine layer to allow them to surface, which is no small task. Therefore, it will be difficult for the northeast winds to surface in coastal and lower valley areas of L.A./VTU Counties. This will be most likely to occur in the valleys of Ventura County and northern/western L.A. County for a few hours Tue morning. That is far from a sure thing, given how unusual this would be for mid June. But there is still a chance that it will happen, and it will have to be watched closely. Given the offshore gradients, do expect much faster clearing of any low clouds Tue. Max temps should jump up several degrees in most areas Tue, especially in the valleys of L.A./VTU Counties. If winds do actually surface, it will likely be warmer than currently forecast on Tue in coastal and valley areas of L.A./VTU Counties. Expect little change in max temps across SLO and SBA Counties.

A broad trough will sag southward thru the West Coast Tue night and Wed. N-S gradients should still be strong enough for some gusty winds during the late afternoon thru late evening hours across SBA County Tue/Tue night, but much there should be much less in the way of wind across L.A./VTU Counties. Expect more widespread night thru morning low clouds and fog in coastal and valley areas Tue night/Wed morning, with low clouds likely returning to areas N of Pt. Conception as well. Max temps should be down several degrees in most coastal and valley areas south of Pt Conception Wed, with somewhat less cooling elsewhere.

.LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...17/507 AM.

The broad upper level trough will linger across the region into Thu. Expect widespread night thru morning low clouds and fog in most coastal/valley areas Wed night/Thu. There may be slight warming Thu, mainly across the interior, with max temps within a few degrees of normal in most areas.

Heights will gradually rise Fri and Sat as a large upper high over the south central U.S. expands westward into the forecast area.
The marine layer will shrink in depth, with night thru morning low clouds and fog likely squeezed out of most valley areas by Fri, or at the latest Sat. Max temps should rise a few degrees both Fri and Sat, especially away from the immediate coast, and should be several degrees above normal in most areas by Sat. Temps could approach 105 degrees in the Antelope Valley, and rise well into the 90s to near 100 degrees in the valleys west of the mtns.

As the marine layer becomes more shallow late this week into the weekend, the marine inversion will become stronger, which may make for slower clearing near the coast, minimizing any warming there.

Expect mostly minor changes in the marine layer depth Sat night/Sun as the upper level pattern remains rather stagnant. An increase in onshore flow may bring slight cooling to coastal areas Sun, but otherwise, expect little change.

AVIATION
17/1149Z.

At 08Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 1400 feet deep. The top of the inversion was at 3900 ft with a temperature of 19 deg C.

Moderate confidence in KPMD KWJF and KPRB, due to uncertainty in gusty winds and the potential for FU from distant fires. Gusty W to NW will affect the Antelope Valley through the period. Blowing dust and sand will locally reduce visibilities to one half mile or less at times thru this evening

Low to moderate confidence in other TAFs. There could also be some reduced vsbys from FU at L.A. County airports this morning.
Additionally, there is uncertainty with the timing of stratus clearing and development tonight.

Weak to moderate LLWS is possible through 15Z, focused near KSBA, KBUR, and KVNY. There will be mdt to locally strong uddf at times near the mountains.

KLAX...Low to moderate confidence in TAF. There is some uncertainty in the timing of status dissipation and then arrival late tonight. There is a 20% chance of the east wind component reaching 6 to 8 kt between 06Z and 16Z Tue.

KBUR...Low to moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 30% chance of reduced vsbys from FU from the Post Fire until 16Z today. There is some uncertainty in the timing of status dissipation and then arrival late tonight.

MARINE
17/349 AM.

For the Outer Waters, high confidence in current forecast. Winds are expected to remain at Gale force levels into late tonight.
Seas will peak today around 10 to 13 feet. For Tuesday through Friday night, winds will subside, but remain at Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels. Seas drop below 10 feet Tuesday night.

For the Inner Waters north of Point Sal, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. SCA level winds will persist through tonight, and seas will peak today at around 9 to 12 feet.
Then Tuesday and Wednesday, there is a 60-80% chance of SCA level winds, in the afternoons and evenings. For Thursday through Friday night, winds and seas should remain below SCA levels.

For the Inner Waters south of Point Conception, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. Noon today through this evening, Gale Force winds are likely for the Santa Barbara Channel.
Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be a 60-80% chance of SCA level winds across the western half of the Santa Barbara Channel, during the afternoons and evenings. South of the SBA Channel, there is a 50-70% chance of SCA level winds for the western and northern portions of the inner waters, this afternoon into evening.
Otherwise and elsewhere, SCA conditions are not expected.

BEACHES
17/315 AM.

Short-period wind waves, due to gale force winds over the nearby coastal waters, will generate elevated-to-high surf conditions and dangerous rip currents across the beaches through today. West and northwest facing beaches will see the highest surf.
