Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 207 PM PDT Sat May 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. 30/205 PM.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail across southwestern California through this afternoon, with a few leftover showers over San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Night and morning low clouds and fog should affect the coast and valleys tonight into early next week, otherwise partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue. Temperatures will be several degrees below normal today, then turn warmer to near normal Sunday and to several degrees above normal early next week.

SHORT TERM (TDY-TUE). 30/202 PM.

A 564 dm H5 low was inland over nrn CA early this afternoon, with a broad WSW flow aloft over swrn CA. The tail end of a weak frontal system pushed into the Central Coast with a few showers down to Point Conception. Further N, steady rain occurred in the hills of NW SLO County, with up to 0.63 inch of rain reported at Rocky Butte from last night thru today. There will be a few leftover showers over parts of SLO/SBA Counties thru mid afternoon. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail N of Point Conception thru sunset, with sunny to partly cloudy skies elsewhere.

Decent onshore gradients should continue this afternoon (e.g., NAM fcst LAX-DAG +8.2 mb at 00Z) which will contribute to breezy to gusty W to SW winds for much of the forecast area into early this evening. Temps will be about 3-10 deg below normal across the region, with afternoon highs in the warmest vlys and lower mtns expected to be in the mid to upper 70s, except into the low 80s in the Antelope Vly

For tonight through Sun night, a broad upper level trof will develop over the E Pac just off of the CA coast with S to SW flow aloft over the forecast area. On Mon, a 570 dm H5 low will develop at the base of the upper trof about 200 NM SW of Point Conception. The upper trof should then drift S and away from srn CA to a position about 300 NM SSW of Point Conception by late Tue afternoon. This will allow H5 heights to increase over swrn CA from about 572-577 dm Mon afternoon to around 577-579 dm Tue afternoon.

A weak marine inversion around 1000 ft deep is expected to form tonight. Low clouds are expected to develop along the coast and move into some of the adjacent vlys late tonight and Sun morning. The generally weak inversion will continue Sun night into Mon morning, and a weak eddy is forecast over the SoCal Bight. It looks like more low clouds will develop along the coast and into some adjacent vlys altho there should be northerly canyon winds along the SBA County S coast which should keep the low clouds away. Marine layer clouds will continue to affect most coastal areas Mon night into Tue morning as well. Otherwise, there will be plenty of mid and hi level clouds moving into swrn CA Sun thru Tue to keep mostly cloudy skies for the most part over the region, except some clearing should develop over SLO/SBA Counties Tue afternoon.

Onshore gradients will decrease some thru Tue, but there will still be breezy SW-NW onshore winds each afternoon and evening for many areas. For Sun evening, the NAM was also forecasting gradients from SBA-SMX to peak at -3.6 mb at 06Z. This will contribute to gusty NW to N sundowner winds for the SBA County S coast and Santa Ynez Mtns mainly W of Goleta, with some gusts possibly approaching Advisory levels.

Temps are forecast to turn warmer Sun thru Tue despite the presence of mid and hi level clouds over the region. This is due to a combination of weaker onshore gradients and increased boundary layer/950 mb temps. It looks like highs in the warmest vlys and lower mtns will reach the lower to mid 80s Sun, Mid 80s to near 90 on Mon, and mid 80s to low 90s on Tue. High temps by Tue will be about 3-8 deg above normal away from the coast.

LONG TERM (WED-SAT). 30/202 PM.

The GFS and EC have the upper level low remaining about 300 to 350 NM SW of Point Conception on Wed, then the models differ in the movement of the upper low Thu and Fri. The GFS is quicker to eject the upper low NE Thu and into srn CA Thu night and early Fri morning. The EC is slower and keeps the upper level low nearly stationary thru Thu then pushes it NE and into srn CA by midday on Fri. The GFS also develops showers over much of the forecast area Thu night and early Fri while the EC remains dry for the most part. The GFS and EC ensembles pretty much follow the thinking of their respective operational runs thru this period. By Sat, however, both models are consistent with a large upper level trof moving into the E Pac giving srn CA a broad SW flow aloft.

The NBM does have less than 15 percent POPs over the area Wednesday evening and again Thursday evening, too low to mention pcpn (the Wednesday evening POPs do not make sense anyway). Due to model uncertainties, kept dry weather over the forecast area thru the extended period. The marine layer pattern should continue with night and morning low clouds and fog mostly for the coast except minor intrusion into the adjacent valleys at times. Otherwise, mostly clear skies can be expected across the region. Forecast confidence this period is moderate at best due to model inconsistencies. Temps should be several degrees warmer than normal on Wed then a gradual cooling trend should take place thru the end of the week. It should be noted the EC has decent offshore gradients Wed with temps much warmer than what is currently forecast.

AVIATION. 30/1914Z.

At 1630Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 2600 feet deep. The top of the weak inversion was at 4400 feet with a temperature of 10 degrees C.

Low to moderate confidence in TAFs. Conditions will mostly be VFR through the period, mostly clear skies today, but stratocumulus with MVFR/VFR ceilings in many locations tonight.

KLAX . Low to moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 30 percent chance of marine clouds arriving plus or minus two or more hours from the forecasted time. No east wind concerns.

KBUR . Low to moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 30 percent chance of marine clouds arriving plus or minus two or more hours from the forecasted time.

MARINE. 30/128 PM.

Good confidence that winds and seas will largely remain below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) level today. Widespread SCA level northwest winds are likely across the waters from the Central Coast to San Nicolas Island Sunday afternoon through Monday night.

Short period seas will build Sunday night into Tuesday due to the increased northwest winds. Long period south swell will persist through next week.

BEACHES. 30/128 PM.

Beach hazards for elevated surf and high rip current risk continues through Sunday afternoon.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Beach Hazards Statement in effect through Sunday afternoon for zones 40-41-87. (See LAXCFWLOX). PZ . NONE.

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (TUE-SAT).

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.

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