Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 1012 AM PST Tue Jan 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. 21/842 AM.

Temperatures will be cool today as a low pressure system brings clouds and a chance of rain to northern San Luis Obispo County. The area will warm through the week as clouds clear out and high pressure builds in. There is a slight chance of rain on Sunday.

SHORT TERM (TDY-THU). 21/809 AM.

Latest satellite and surface observations indicate partly to mostly cloudy skies across the district this morning. Moisture axis that generated light precipitation overnight has moved south of the area. So, expect dry conditions today with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures today will be on the cool side (a couple degrees below normal) due to cloud cover and moderate onshore gradients. With the onshore gradients, there will be some locally gusty southwesterly winds across interior sections, but speeds should remain well below advisory-level concerns.

For tonight through Thursday, initial look at 12Z model data indicates no major issues. For tonight, the tail end of a weak system will clip San Luis Obispo county, bringing a chance of some very light precipitation to northern SLO county. Otherwise, partly cloudy conditions will continue overnight for all areas with some possibility of low clouds across the coastal plain. On Wednesday, skies should clear out with mostly clear conditions across the area. For Wednesday night and Thursday, there will likely be some interior clouds during the night and morning hours due to north to northeast flow. Also, some increasing high clouds can be expected on Thursday across northern sections. However, conditions will remain dry.

As for temperatures, today will be the coolest day in the short term. With upper level ridge building overhead and weak north to northeast surface gradients developing, Wednesday and Thursday will exhibit a nice warming trend with many coastal/valley areas in the upper 60s to mid 70s on Thursday.

As for winds, northerly gradients will develop this evening and continue through Wednesday evening with northerly winds in the usual spots (Santa Ynez Range and I-5 Corridor). The gradients are not too strong and upper level support is limited, so do not anticipate any widespread advisory-level winds (although the windy spots like Gaviota and Refugio will likely have localized advisory level gusts). For Wednesday night and Thursday, the gradients turn northeasterly. So, there will be some northeast winds across the area, but again speeds should remain below advisory levels.

LONG TERM (FRI-MON). 21/307 AM.

Both the GFS and EC agree that Friday and Saturday will be rather pleasant as ridging will hold sway over the area. Hgts will be near 573 DM. There will be enough northerly offshore flow to keep the low clouds away. The ridge is not strong enough to deflect the mid and high level clouds and skies will be partly cloudy. Max temps will rise a couple of degrees Friday and then hold steady on Saturday. Most max temps will end up 3 to 6 degrees above normal.

The EC and the GFS continue to agree on the forecast through Sunday. Both show a quick moving trof and associated cold front moving through the state. Most of the front's energy will remain fairly far to the north and the front will likely lose much of its punch as it rounds Pt Conception. Quite a number of both the GFS and EC's ensemble members keep LA county dry. The Central Coast will likely see rain and the only reason POPs are a little on the low side is due to timing issues. Whatever happens not much rain will fall. A half inch might be a generous estimate for the Central Coast with substantially less south of Pt Conception. Max temps will fall 3 to 6 degrees across the board.

Moderate north flow is forecast to develop behind the front on Sunday night and last into Monday. If the current mdl fcst comes true this event would produce advisory level gusts. Skies will clear and max temps will once again begin to rise.

AVIATION. 21/1812Z.

At 1611Z, there was a moist layer up to about 5000 feet across the region. There were several different cloud layers, and ceilings will likely be quite variable today. In general, expect mostly MVFR conds this morning, improving to VFR in most areas (with the possible exception of coastal sections of L.A. County) this afternoon. Expect areas of MVFR cigs tonight across coastal and valley sections of L.A. County and the Central Coast.

KLAX . Low confidence in the 18Z TAF. There is a 40-50% chance that cigs will remain this afternoon through 00Z.

KBUR . Low to moderate confidence in the 18Z TAF. There is a 30-40% chance that cigs will remain through 00z this afternoon.

MARINE. 21/804 AM.

Hazardous seas are overspreading the outer waters and inner waters north of Point Sal this morning, and will continue through late Wed night. There is a 30% chance that seas will remain above Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels into Thu morning.

Winds are expected to remain below SCA levels through Thu, though there is a 30-40% chance of SCA level wind gusts across portions of the outer waters today and Wed in the afternoon and evening. SCA level NW winds are likely across the outer waters Fri thru Sat, possibly beginning as early as late Thu night.

SCA level NW winds are expected across the northern inner waters Fri afternoon and evening.

SCA conds are not expected thru the period across the southern inner waters or the Santa Barbara Channel.

BEACHES. 21/810 AM.

A large long-period mostly northwest swell will affect the coastal waters through Wednesday night. Surf of 9 to 12 feet is expected on west and northwest facing beaches of the Central Coast. The peak of the surf is expected this evening when max sets to 14 feet are possible. A High Surf Advisory is in effect for the Central Coast beaches through 6 PM Wednesday.

A marginal High Surf Advisory was added for the Los Angeles and Ventura County beaches based upon the beach observations and offshore buoy observations last evening. Surf is expected to subside this afternoon, but may increasing again by late Wednesday.

With the high surf, there is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause injury, wash people off beaches and rocks, and capsize small boats near shore.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory in effect until 6 PM PST Wednesday for zones 34-35. (See LAXCFWLOX). High Surf Advisory in effect until 2 PM PST this afternoon for zones 40-41-87. (See LAXCFWLOX). PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PST Thursday for zones 645-670-673-676. (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.
