Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 348 PM PST Sun Jan 19 2020

SYNOPSIS. 19/134 PM.

Dry and warmer conditions continue today with gusty offshore winds over eastern Ventura and northern Los Angeles Counties. Conditions will be cloudy and cooler early in the week with a slight chance of light showers across the region late Monday through Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather returns for the remainder of the week.

SHORT TERM (TDY-WED). 19/137 PM.

Minimal changes to the forecast this week. High clouds have thickened up but temps managed to get close to 80 in parts of the San Gabriel Valley today. Gradients have already peaked and are starting to trend back onshore which will mean cooler temps for coast/valleys Monday, perhaps as much as 5-10 degrees. Still quite cloudy with the high overcast but no precip until at least Monday night.

At that point the models diverge quite a bit with the GFS remaining quite dry while virtually all of the ECMWF ensemble members show at least some very light rain for all but SLO County Monday night into Tuesday morning. Moisture is still pretty high based (mostly at or above 700mb) and it's quite possible that we'll see sprinkles everywhere but actual measurable rain in only isolated areas and higher chances in LA County. In any case, impacts will be minimal as there aren't any model solutions that show more than a few hundredths. Temps Tuesday will cool a few more degrees in most areas.

And that may be the end of our precip chances during this period. Both the GFS and ECMWF show the very southern edge of a system clipping SLO County but again any rain would be very light. Some clearing expected late Tuesday in the south but increasing clouds again with that next system early Wednesday. Slight warming expected Wednesday with ridging starting to develop and weaker onshore flow but most areas still running a degree or two below normal.

LONG TERM (THU-SUN). 19/156 PM.

The Wednesday ridge will continue to build over the area through Thursday while gradients turn lightly offshore. Most areas will see a nice bump in temps but especially coast/valleys due to the offshore push. Not expecting enough offshore flow for advisory level winds but some 15-25 mph breezes possible in the favored areas. Highs expected to climb into the 70s most coast/valley locations south of Pt Conception.

A weak trough cuts under the ridge to the south on Thursday but this will have little or no impact and the light offshore flow will continue through at least Saturday with similar temps.

The ridge breaks down Sunday as a trough approaches from the west. The models differ quite a bit with this one as the EC is wetter and faster. Looks like most of the precip should arrive after sunset Sunday, especially LA/Ventura Counties, but leaving in some low pops southern zones as we're still a week out. EC ensembles showing around a half to an inch of rain northern areas and a half or less in the south.

AVIATION. 19/2346Z.

At 2345Z at KLAX, there was no marine inversion present.

High confidence in all 00Z TAFs with VFR conditions expected through this evening. As flow trends onshore, moderate confidence in MVFR cigs redeveloping at KSBP and KSMX on Monday morning. There is also a 20 percent chance of MVFR cigs redeveloping Monday morning or early afternoon for coastal TAF locations south of Point Conception. There is also a 30 percent chance of dense fog reforming at KPRB early Monday morning.

LAX . High confidence in the 00Z TAF with VFR conditions expected through tonight. There is a 20 percent chance of MVFR cigs redeveloping Monday morning or early afternoon. Good confidence the east wind component will be 6 kt or less 13Z-19Z Mon.

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

MARINE. 19/1159 AM.

Southern inner waters, SCA winds are not expected through at least Tuesday across all coastal waters.

SCA level NW winds are likely across the outer waters Wed, and there is also a 50% chance of SCA level wind gusts at times over parts of the outer waters on Thursday.

There is high confidence that seas will reach or exceed 10 ft Tue night thru Wed across the outer waters and northern inner waters as a large, long period west to northwest swell overspreads the waters. Seas could approach 8 ft across the SBA Channel.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . NONE.

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (WED-SUN).

No significant hazards expected.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
