Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 142 PM PDT Mon Jul 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. 13/129 PM.

Slight cooling will continue through mid week with daytime highs near to slightly below normal. Night through morning low clouds will push onshore and into the coastal valleys each night, then clear to near the coast each day by noon. A slight warming trend is expected by the weekend but mostly for inland areas and not as hot as it was.

SHORT TERM (TDY-THU). 13/122 PM.

Onshore trends continue this afternoon with gradients to the east and north both up 2-3mb from yesterday. As a result temps today are running 6-12 degrees cooler on average with some areas in interior SLO/SB Counties down as much as 18 degrees from yesterday. The increase in marine layer depth to around 1600' also playing a big roll in the cooler weather today. We're seeing some gusty sea breezes developing in the western portion of the Antelope Valley and surrounding foothills with gusts to between 40-45 mph which is increasing the concern for potential fire growth.

Today's drop in temps will be the biggest single day change of the week, though we will continue to see slightly cooler temps each of the next few days. By tomorrow temps will be very close to normal levels then falling slightly below normal Wed/Thu. Marine layer clouds expected to push a little farther inland tonight reaching most of the coastal valleys and including the southern Salinas Valley. Then similar coverage each of the next couple nights.

LONG TERM (FRI-MON). 13/137 PM.

Overall pretty low impact weather expected for the end of the week into early next week. High pressure is expected to expand back towards the west over the weekend but not nearly as strong as it did the last few days and there's still a decent onshore flow in place through the period. So a modest warm up expected for interior areas mostly but not anywhere close to the kind of heat we saw the last couple days. In general, very typical early-mid summer weather.

So far still not seeing any signs of monsoon flow coming this far west at least through early next week. There are hints of some moisture coming into southeast California by around the middle of next week but with the trough lingering just west of the California coast that moisture will struggle to make it far enough west to have any impact across LA County or areas to the west/north.

AVIATION. 13/1750Z.

At 1714Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 1900 ft deep. The top of the inversion was near 2900 feet with a temperature around 24C.

Moderate confidence in coastal TAFs and KPRB, and high confidence in remaining TAFs. TAF sites are all VFR for the rest of the day. Some coastal sites will see an early return of marine clouds. The marine clouds are expected to push into some valley sections tonight, including the TAF sites in the San Fernando Valley. The remainder of the region will remain VFR and cloud free through the period. Gusty winds will return to the Antelope Valley this afternoon.

KLAX . Moderate confidence in 18z TAF. There is a 30 percent chance of marine clouds arriving earlier than forecasted time. Good confidence in no east wind component greater than 7 kt.

KBUR . Moderate confidence in 18z TAF. There is a 30 percent chance of VFR conditions through the period.

MARINE. 13/915 AM.

No changes to the morning update.

High confidence in Small Craft Advisory (SCA) level northwest winds continuing across the outer waters along the Central Coast to San Nicolas Island through late tonight. Winds will likely weaken along the Central Coast and stay elevated south of Point Conception on Tuesday. There is a 30% chance of SCA level winds from Point Conception to San Nicolas Island on Tuesday with the best chance in the evening. Otherwise, high confidence that winds and seas will remain below SCA level from Tuesday through the rest of the week across all waters.

Areas of patchy dense fog will continue across the coastal waters at times through the week, especially the early half.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 670-673-676. (See LAXMWWLOX).

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (THU-MON).

No significant hazards expected.

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.
