Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 324 AM PDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. 04/323 AM.

A warming trend will continue through the weekend as high pressure builds aloft. Significant warming is expected inland, with highs 3-8 degrees above normal through Monday, then some cooling by midweek. Marine layer clouds will be limited to a few coastal areas through Monday, with more widespread low clouds for the coast and some coastal valleys by mid week. Gusty Sundowner winds expected Sunday evening into early Monday.

SHORT TERM (TDY-MON). 04/323 AM.

Synoptically, a 595 DM high will be over southern AZ/NM with the high expanding to 591 DM across much of the Southwest into the Four Corners Region. The high will shift westward and center over the southern half of California out the Ern Pac to the west, and east to NM by Sunday. The upper ridge will begin to breakdown as a persistent trough to the northwest digs farther south into Central California.

For today, expect significant warming across inland locations while coastal areas remain fairly mild. The marine layer was around 700 ft this morning with patchy low clouds and fog across the Central Coast, as well as a slug of stratus off the Ventura Coast to southern SBA County. Except for the Central Coast, low clouds should remain off the coast this morning, with a slight chance for stratus to develop across the L.A. County Coast near sunrise. If low clouds do develop, they will be short lived with sunny skies.

High temps will trend up 3-8 degrees in most areas south of Point Conception, and between 8-18 degrees warmer across SLO and SBA Counties. Highest trends will be in the SLO County coastal foothills and SLO interior Valleys. The combination of strong high pressure aloft and somewhat weaker onshore flow over the next few days will allow high temps to reach the lower 100s in the Antelope Valley and SLO Valleys including the Salinas River Valley where Paso Robles should reach around 101 both today and Sunday. Most valleys will range between the upper 80s to upper 90s through Sunday, while a relatively shallow marine layer will keep the coastal areas mild with highs ranging between the lower 70s to mid 80s inland. Weaker onshore flow should keep the usual breezy Hwy 14 Corridor from the Santa Clarita Valley to the Antelope Valley with SW to W winds 15 to 25 mph with local gusts to 35 mph across Lake Palmdale and adjacent foothills late in the afternoon and early evening. There will be some weak Sundowner winds across the western portion of the SBA South Coast, mainly west of Refugio Saturday evening, but the SBA-SMX gradient will strengthen to around -4.2MB Sunday evening which should bring some gusty NW to N winds 20-35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph between Refugio and Gaviota through the overnight hours. A Wind Advisory is likely going to be needed for that time period.

There will be little change with the forecast on Sunday, with only patchy low clouds possible once again across a few coastal areas, with the best chance across the L.A. Coast. There could be a few patchy low clouds across the Central Coast, but some weak offshore winds from the San Lucia's should keep skies mostly clear through Monday morning.

By Monday, the upper ridge will breakdown as a persistent trough over the PAC NW will dig south into Central California. The main affect will be a 3-6 degree cooling change across most areas, with little relief across the L.A. County Valleys as highs will remain in the lower to mid 90s with the Antelope Valley still in the upper 90s to around 101 degrees. Not anticipating any high temperature records through the weekend for inland areas.

LONG TERM (TUE-FRI). 04/323 AM.

The ECMWF and GFS continue to remain in generally good agreement for large scale features through much of the extended period, except for Friday where the EC is a bit more bullish with ridging. Upper level troffiness will move back into the region for Tue through Wed, with H5 heights lowering to 586-589 dm or so.

The marine inversion will rebound some Tue, with a deeper marine layer likely up to 1500-2000 ft deep for Wed/Thu as the trough moves closer to the region. Night through morning low clouds and fog should affect portions of the Central coast, as well as the the coast of VTU/L.A. Counties, then extend into the San Gabriel and Santa Ynez Valleys by Wed/Thu nights. Otherwise, mostly clear skies will continue.

Temps are expected to be near normal to slightly below normal Tue thru Thu, then warm to slightly above normal Fri. Highs in the warmest vlys and lower mtns should reach the 80s to lower 90s Tue thru Thu, and in the 90s on Fri except near 100 in the Antelope Vly.

AVIATION. 04/0007Z.

At 2300Z at KLAX . The inversion was 1200 feet deep. The top of the inversion was around 1600 feet with a temperature of 26 degrees Celsius.

Overall . Low confidence in coastal TAFs and high confidence for the valleys and desert. IFR/LIFR conditions may return to coastal sites, south of KSBP, but there is a 40% chance that any site may remain clear. Otherwise, late onset is expected of any cigs that do occur, but with low certainty in timing. High confidence in VFR conditions for the valleys and deserts, with gusty SW winds for KPMD and KWJF.

KLAX . Low to moderate confidence in the 00Z TAF. IFR conditions may return from 08Z to 17Z, but there is a 40% chance the cigs are periodic or that conditions remain VFR. There will not be any east winds greater than 8 kts.

KBUR . High confidence in the 00Z TAF with VFR conditions through the period.

MARINE. 03/744 PM.

Across the outer waters . Winds will increase to Small Craft Advisory (SCA) level this afternoon in the northern outer waters, then the winds will increase across all of the outer waters Saturday afternoon and will likely reach gale level Saturday night. Winds will diminish to SCA level Monday morning and will remain SCA level through at least Wednesday.

Across the nearshore waters of the Central Coast . There is a forty percent chance of winds increasing to SCA level Saturday afternoon and a seventy percent chance on Sunday afternoon. The winds will then likely continue at advisory level through at least Wednesday, primarily during the afternoon and evening hours.

Across the inner waters south of Point Conception . From Point Conception to Point Mugu, winds will likely increase to SCA level during the afternoon and evening hours of Sunday through Wednesday. Otherwise and elsewhere, conditions will remain below SCA level.

Patchy fog, locally dense with visibility under one mile, will continue through the week. The poorest visibility and most widely spread conditions will occur in the overnight and morning hours.

A long period south swell will affect the area into early next week, creating large waves nearshore and hazards to drifting boaters.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory in effect until noon PDT Monday for zones 34-35-40-41-87. (See LAXCFWLOX). PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 645-676. (See LAXMWWLOX). Small Craft Advisory in effect until 9 PM PDT this evening for zones 670-673. (See LAXMWWLOX). Gale Warning in effect from 9 PM this evening to 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 670-673. (See LAXMWWLOX).

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (MON-FRI).

Gusty winds are likely Monday over the Antelope Valley and southern Santa Barbara County which may lead to hazardous driving conditions. Elevated surf will affect south facing beaches into Monday morning. Large high tides may result in tidal overflow in vulnerable low lying areas. Strong rip currents are likely Sunday night and Monday.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
