Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 150 PM PDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. 03/1204 PM.

Onshore flow increases tonight as a Catalina Eddy brings low clouds back over most of the south coasts and valleys. Saturday will see increasing high clouds as a storm system approaches southern California. Moderate to heavy rain will overspread the area Sunday night through Monday with lingering rain and mountain snow showers Monday night through Thursday.

SHORT TERM (TDY-MON). 03/147 PM.

Quiet before the storm as the saying goes. Nice sunny conditions today with mild temperatures and very little to complain about. A few clouds have lingered over the LA Basin today following the weak marine inversion from last night. Winds are a little gusty through the highway 14 corridor into the Antelope Valley and along the central coast . gusts to 40 mph near Poppy Park and 35 mph near Gaviota. Expect an offshore pressure gradient to help winds remain gusty west of Goleta on the south SBA coast this evening, diminishing after midnight.

Saturday morning will be mostly cloudy with patchy fog across most beaches and valleys from LA to Ventura County and will likely push into Santa Barbara by sunrise. A rather strong eddy circulation near Catalina Eddy will be responsible to this return of low clouds. Morning clouds will knock a few degrees off the afternoon highs from what we are experiencing today. Northern areas will see increasing high clouds Saturday afternoon as a low pressure trough develops north of California.

Sunday is our transition day as low pressure near the Oregon coast merges with a much colder trough dropping down the British Columbia coast. Also, a storm system over the central Pacific is very active with thunderstorms today and this is where much of our moisture will originate from for Sunday night and Monday. A rather organized cold front will push southward from the Bay Area Saturday night with light rain developing across San Luis Obispo County early Sunday. As colder air aloft builds into the region, the cold front will become a little steeper as lapse rates increase and southerly flow increases. This will result in a significant rain band with moderate orographic flow into our mountain ranges by Sunday evening. Between 6pm-midnight the SBA County foothills/mountains will be seeing moderate to heavy rain which will spread southward across Ventura County overnight and into LA County by Monday morning. Embedded isolated thunderstorms will be possible along and near the front during this time period.

To complicate matters, both the NAM and GFS models are showing another disturbance rotating into the base of the low pressure on Monday. This slows the front down as the trough axis pivots more north-south and temporarily aligns with the surface features. The slower southward movement favors steady moderate to heavy rain over the eastern LA County for a longer duration, therefore, higher rain amounts in the foothills/mountains. In total it may take a solid 24-hours to see the steady rain and front traverse from our northern counties to the eastern LA County line.

There will be a break in the steady rain to the more convective showery-type rainfall by afternoon (north) and evening (south) on Monday. Models do indicate strong diffluent flow and another potential round of showers and isolated thunderstorms increasing Monday night into Tuesday morning as the upper low moves closer to southwest CA.

Rainfall totals look good overall with 0.75-1.5" for coasts and valleys, especially Ventura and LA, and 1.5-3.0" for foothills and mountains through Monday night. This amount of rain could meet or exceed our normal amount during a typical month of April, in just one-day. Rain rates will mostly be in the 0.25-0.50"/hour range with local rates over 0.75"/hr in heavier cells. This should not be a significant threat for recent burn scars, but minor debris will be possible. Snow levels will begin above 5500 feet Sunday night-Monday, then fall closer to 4500 feet by Tuesday morning. Think the main accumulations will remain above 6k feet, but some local amounts will be possible near Tejon Pass at some point on Tuesday. A winter storm watch may be needed in the day or so.

LONG TERM (TUE-FRI). 03/139 PM.

Both Tuesday and Wednesday will remain cold and unstable with a fairly good chance of showers developing each day after a little heating, and some of those showers could be heavy and contain small hail or ice pellets. Temperatures aloft range from -28 to -31 degrees C so it doesn't take much to get towering cumulus with ice and a lightning flash or two. The main impact will likely be low snow levels between 4-4.5k feet for the duration and travel problems over mountain passes, including the Grapevine at times. Confidence in the forecast goes down on Thursday due to the timing issues with the low pressure system. If it hangs around there could be additional showers, but the trend looks to be a decreasing threat of showers by Thursday afternoon/evening.

Friday would appear to be a drier day with high pressure building into the west coast and the low finally shifting to the east. Warmer and dry conditions expected into next weekend.

AVIATION. 03/1839Z.

At 17Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 4000 feet. The top of the weak inversion was at 5000 feet and 8 degrees C.

Moderate to high confidence of VFR conditions everywhere through 03Z, with SKC-SCT020. Low-moderate confidence in timing, categories, and coverage of stratus tonight into Saturday. Clouds could be solid in coverage, or spotty with many breaks due to possibilty weak inversion.

KLAX . High confidence in VFR prevailing through 04Z. Moderate confidence in presence of CIGS, low confidence in timing with a projected start time between 03Z and 09Z. Moderate confidence in CIGS at MVFR. East winds are likely, with a 40 percent chance of exceed 8 KT, best chance 10-16Z.

KBUR . High confidence in VFR prevailing through 06Z. Moderate confidence in presence of CIGS, low confidence in timing with a projected start time between 06Z and 12Z. Moderate confidence in CIGS at MVFR. Southeast winds will be prevalent through the night into Saturday.

MARINE. 03/914 AM.

High confidence in Gale Force winds through tonight off the Central Coast down to San Nicolas Island, with Small Craft Advisory (SCA) winds bleeding into the nearshore waters of the Central Coast and the western half of the Santa Barbara Channel. The rest of the waters may need a SCA for short period seas, but more probable the seas will stay just under those thresholds. High confidence NW winds will decrease quickly on Saturday, allowing for enhanced SE winds from Orange to Santa Barbara Counties, including the San Pedro Channel and Anacapa Passage.

A storm system is still on target to impact the area Sunday through Wednesday. Thunderstorms will be possible any time, but especially Tuesday and Wednesday. South wind gusts between 25 and 35 kt are also possible Sunday into early Monday anywhere as the system moves down the coast.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Saturday for zones 645-650. (See LAXMWWLOX). Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 PM PDT this afternoon for zones 670-673-676. (See LAXMWWLOX). Gale Warning in effect until 11 PM PDT this evening for zone 670. (See LAXMWWLOX). Gale Warning in effect until 4 AM PDT Saturday for zones 673-676. (See LAXMWWLOX).

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (MON-FRI).

Rain, possibly heavy at times, and mountain snow above 5000 feet are expected Monday. Numerous rain and mountain snow showers are expected with possible thunderstorms Tuesday to Wednesday. Showers will decrease on Thursday. Impacts will include minor urban flooding and difficult mountain travel.
