Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 837 PM PDT Sun Jul 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. 05/525 PM.

Gusty sundowner winds are likely tonight and Monday night. Afternoon temperatures will be cooler Tuesday through Thursday with a gradual increase in coastal low clouds and fog. Temperatures will warm notably again Friday through next weekend.

SHORT TERM (SUN-WED). 05/835 PM.

The big weather story of the day was the hot and dry conditions across interior sections that helped to fuel the Soledad Fire near Agua Dulce. Considerable smoke from this fire pushing northeast and east into the San Gabriel mountains and Antelope Valley. Some of the hot spots today included Paso Robles at 102 degrees, Woodland Hills at 101 degrees, and Palmdale/Lancaster at 100 degrees.

Other than the smoke from the Soledad fire, skies are mostly clear this evening. Some patchy night and morning low clouds and fog are expected to develop late tonight into Monday morning across the LA county coast and SBA central coast. Little change in the overall pattern on Monday with a flat upper level ridge of high pressure over the area. This will lead to another very warm and dry day on Monday, with warmest interior areas expected to climb to between 95 and 100 degrees. The hot and dry conditions combined with the typical gusty onshore winds in the afternoon/evening will lead to another day of elevated fire weather concerns on Monday across interior areas.

The other fire weather concern area will be the western portions of the SBA south coast and adjacent foothills where gusty sundowner winds will bring warm and dry conditions this evening and again Monday evening. As of 8 pm this evening, the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria pressure gradient is at -2.8 mb and is expected to climb to between -3 and -3.5 mb later this evening. This has resulted in wind gusts between 30 and 40 mph this evening from Gaviota to San Marcos Pass. The gradients are expected to be slightly stronger on Monday evening, with the pressure gradient approaching -4.0 mb. This will result in wind gusts between 35 and 45 mph on Monday evening from Gaviota to San Marcos Pass. Also, there will be some gusty northerly winds through the I-5 Corridor, but these winds will also remain below advisory levels.

*** From previous discussion ***

Otherwise, the short term period should be rather benign. Main challenge will be forecasting extent of marine layer stratus. Currently, marine inversion is quite shallow (under 1000 feet deep). Over the next three evenings, will anticipate a slight deepening of the inversion and a gradual increase in stratus coverage due to continued onshore gradients and slight lowering of H5 heights. Any stratus/fog tonight and Monday night should be confined to the coastal plain (with some dense fog likely) with stratus pushing into the lower coastal valleys Tuesday night. Dissipation of stratus each day should be pretty good. Other than any potential stratus, skies should remain mostly clear.

As for temperatures, today will be the warmest day in the short term. A cooling trend is anticipated Monday through Wednesday with most areas falling to around seasonal normals by Wednesday.

LONG TERM (THU-SUN). 05/124 PM.

For the extended, 12Z models continue to exhibit good synoptic agreement. At upper levels, high pressure builds near the Four Corners through the period. Near the surface, weak to moderate onshore flow will prevail with a bit of northerly offshore gradients thrown in.

Forecast-wise, a very classic Summertime pattern is on tap for the area in the extended period. As the upper level high develops near the Four Corners area, the marine inversion will become more shallow from day-to-day and the areal extent of stratus/fog will follow suit each night (with little, if any, stratus by Saturday and Sunday). Other than any potential stratus, will expect mostly clear skies through the period. However, will definitely have to watch exactly where the upper level high develops as some monsoonal moisture could move into the area this weekend. So, the mostly clear forecast may need to be adjusted in a few days, depending on how things develop.

As for temperatures, increasing thicknesses/H5 heights and less marine influence will bring a warming trend to the area with Saturday/Sunday likely the warmest days (valleys in the mid to upper 90s and interior sections in the low 100s). In fact, would not be surprised to see temperatures actually a little warmer than currently forecast. Will have to watch the situation closely over the next few model runs.

AVIATION. 06/0020Z.

At 2330z at KLAX . The inversion was surface based. The top of the inversion was around 3050 feet with a temperature of about 26 degrees Celsius.

Overall . Moderate to high confidence in the current TAFs. IFR/MVFR conditions will return to KLAX, KLGB, and KSMO 09z-16z. There is a less than ten percent chance of IFR/MVFR conditions at KBUR and KVNY 09z-16z. Otherwise and elsewhere, VFR conditions will prevail.

KLAX . Moderate confidence in the current TAF. IFR/MVFR conditions will return 09z-16z. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period. There will not be any east winds greater than 8 kts.

KBUR . High confidence in the current TAF. There is a less than ten percent chance of IFR/MVFR conditions 09z-16z. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period.

MARINE. 05/124 PM.

For the northern and central outer waters zones (PZZ670/673), Gale force winds. mainly thru Mon night. There is a 25% chance that Gales will continue thru Tue night, but if not, Small Craft Advisory (SCA) level winds and seas will. SCA level winds are likely Tue night/Wed. There is a 40% chance of SCA level winds Thu.

For the southern outer waters zone (PZZ676), SCA level winds and seas will develop today, then continue thru Tue night, There is a 30% chance of Gale force winds Mon/Mon night, northwest of San Nicolas Island. There is a 40% chance of SCA level winds Wed thru Thu.

For the inner waters north of Pt. Sal, SCA level winds will develop this afternoon and continue into tonight. There will be SCA level winds during the afternoon and evening hours Mon and Tue. Otherwise, seas will be at or above SCA thresholds later today thru Tue evening. There is a 30% chance of SCA conds Wed thru Thu.

For the inner waters south of Pt. Conception, winds and seas will remain below SCA levels thru Thu. The exception will be in western Santa Barbara Channel, with SCA level winds likely during the afternoon thru late night hours today and Mon. There is a 35% chance of SCA conds in western portions of the SBA Channel during the late afternoon thru late evening hours Tue thru Thu.

Patchy dense fog, with visibility 1NM or less, will affect the waters south of Pt Conception in the night/morning hours thru Tue.

There will be dangerous seas across much of the waters thru Tue. There will be a combination of a long period south swell creating large waves nearshore and hazards to drifting boaters, and a steep large short period swell.

BEACHES. 05/123 PM.

High surf and strong rip currents will continue through early Monday on Southern California beaches. A long-period south swell will peak today at 3 to 4 feet at 17 seconds. High surf of 5 to 8 feet will occur on exposed south and southwest facing beaches of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, and 8 to 11 feet on exposed Central Coast beaches. The Santa Barbara south coast will have minimal affects from this swell due to blockage from the Channel Islands, but local sets to 5 feet and hazardous rip currents will occur near Rincon Point.

The high tides this evening will be quite high, between 6.5 and 7 feet. High tides will be between 10 and 1030 PM PDT this evening. Within a couple of hours on either side of high tide, there will likely be minor coastal flooding of beaches and harbor walkways.

Pay attention to beach closures this weekend. In addition to large surf and dangerous rip currents, dangerous breaking waves from long period waves, have a history of ocean rescues and drownings. Stay off the rocks and jetties near the water's edge.

FIRE WEATHER. 05/813 PM.

Hot and dry conditions are expected to continue across interior areas through Monday, where humidities in the single digits and teens will be common. The driest air will be focused across the Antelope Valley, mountains, and interior valleys of SLO County where humidities as low as 6 to 10 percent can be expected. In addition, locally gusty southwest to northwest winds (gusting between 25 and 40 mph) can be expected across interior sections, strongest in the Antelope Valley. Warm and dry conditions are also expected to linger through the nighttime hours in the foothills and mountains. The combination of hot temperatures, low humidities, locally gusty winds, and drying fuels will bring elevated fire weather conditions to interior areas into Monday, including the Soledad Fire burn area. The rapid fire spread seen this afternoon and evening across the Soledad Fire (near Agua Dulce) are indicative of the large fire growth potential across interior areas, especially during the afternoon hours when onshore winds are strongest.

Elevated fire weather conditions are also expected through Monday evening across the western portions of the Santa Barbara south coast and adjacent foothills, mainly late afternoon and evening hours. These areas can expect gusty sundowner winds, mainly from Gaviota to San Marcos Pass, with gusts of 35 to 45 mph this evening and again Monday evening. The sundowner wind conditions will also bring warm and dry conditions, with humidities lowering into the teens and 20s across foothill areas, while temperatures climb to 85 to 90 degrees.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory in effect until noon PDT Monday for zones 34-35-40-41-87. (See LAXCFWLOX). PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Wednesday for zones 645-676. (See LAXMWWLOX). Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Monday for zone 650. (See LAXMWWLOX). Gale Warning in effect until 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 670-673. (See LAXMWWLOX).
