207 pm pdt Tue oct 22 2019

Synopsis 22 119 pm.

Hot and dry conditions will continue across most of the region,
accompanied by weak to locally moderate santa ana winds affecting
portions of ventura and los angeles today. Temperatures will
slightly cool off on Wednesday before a stronger santa ana wind
event develops Thursday into Friday. Cooler conditions will
return going into the weekend.

Short term (tdy-fri) 22 148 pm.

Very hot and dry today but generally much lighter winds as we are
in between santa ana events. Onshore trends have been slow to
develop today allowing temps to warm up in many areas over
yesterday. It will be hot again tomorrow but likely a few degrees
cooler as the sea breeze should start earlier than today.

Offshore flow expected to get another shot in the arm Wednesday
night and Thursday as the next trough swings south out of canada
and into the northern rockies and great basin. The GFS (including
most of its ensemble members) continues to indicate a light
offshore event at best while the ECMWF and NAM both are suggesting
a strong santa ana, possibly the strongest of the season so far
lax-dag gradients in excess of -8mb and 50-60kt of wind between
the surface and 850mb. The absence of cold air advection is
concerning and this isn't a slam dunk event yet, but the ECMWF did
a better job with the last event and it's been consistent the last
few days with this one, even getting stronger. Because of this,
confidence is high enough now to go with a high wind watch for the
la ventura valleys and mountains, including the santa monica's but
not the san gabriel valley. Could make a case for a watch for the
interior portion of the ventura coast in the camarillo area but
it's rare to get warning level gusts especially without the cold
air advection. But certainly gusts to 50 are a reasonable
expectation and same with the malibu coast.

This will be another hot event as the eastern pacific ridge
expands east following the trough passage with 500mb heights
approaching 590dm. After a little cool down tomorrow look for
highs to jump again Thu and Fri with 90s again commonplace across
coast valleys. Would not be surprised if heat advisories are again
needed. Could even make a case for an excessive heat warning for
some of the coastal areas which will be 20+ degrees above normal.

Overnight lows will be very warm as well, especially in windy
areas. Case in point, the low this morning in morro bay was 73
degrees thanks to a steady northeast wind. Could be looking at
more of the same later this week.

Long term (sat-tue) 22 203 pm.

The ridge will start to break down over the weekend as another
trough approaches from the north. Gradients will also be trending
strongly onshore so look for significant cooling as early as
Saturday and continuing Sunday. May even start to see some marine
layer clouds returning to southern coastal areas by Sunday with
temps back to near normal in most areas.

Forecast confidence drops after Sunday as there are big
differences in handling of the next trough early next week. The
deterministic 12z ECMWF run went back to a sharply cutting upper
trough with almost 50dm of height change from the previous run
over california. The ensemble mean is weaker but still much colder
than the GFS ensemble mean. Still seems too unlikely for rain in
our area to include in the official forecast but not a zero
chance. More likely we'll see another bump up in offshore winds
early next week but with cooler temps than what we've seen.

Current forecast leans towards the GFS next week given the better
consistency with it but definitely low confidence.

Aviation 22 1648z.

At 1557z, there was no marine layer at klax.

High confidence with cavu conditions in the current forecast. Periods
of moderate uddf and llws are possible at all terminals across
l.A. And ventura counties.

Klax... Cavu conditions expected for the 30-hour period. There is a
30% chance for east winds to reach greater than 6 knots Wednesday
morning.

Kbur...VFR conditions are expected through the period.

Marine 22 111 pm.

For the outer waters, there is a forty percent chance of small
craft advisory (sca) level winds for the northwest portion of
the northern zone (pzz670) on Wednesday, otherwise conditions
will remain below SCA levels through the forecast period.

For the inner waters north of point sal, conditions will remain
below SCA levels through the forecast period.

For the inner waters south of point conception, there is 70%
chance of SCA level winds on Thursday. The strongest winds will
occur from ventura to santa monica. There is a 30 percent chance
of winds out to the channel islands, as well as the san pedro
channel to catalina. Strongest winds will occur in the morning but
could hang through mid afternoon. Otherwise conditions will
remain below SCA levels through the forecast period.

Fire weather 22 150 pm.

Through Wednesday afternoon, elevated to brief critical fire
weather conditions will persist with very warm and dry air and
fuels. Breezy offshore winds with gusts between 15 and 30 mph will
continue over the wind prone areas.

Wednesday night through Friday, a moderate to strong santa ana
wind event will bring widespread critical conditions to los
angeles and ventura counties, and elevated to brief critical
conditions for santa barbara and san luis obispo counties. The
previous fire weather watch has been converted to a red flag
warning for most of los angeles and ventura counties. There is
still some uncertainty in the strength of the winds, but peak
gusts between 45 and 65 mph is the most likely outcome.

Humidities will lower to 2 to 9 percent and temperatures will
remain well above normal with highs generally in the 90s. This has
all the makings for a dangerous fire weather scenario, similar to
or worse than the recent october 10-11 event that produced the
saddleridge fire.

The fuels and vegetation are critically dry. The expected weather
will create an environment ripe for large and dangerous fire
growth, especially Thursday and Friday. We urge everyone to be
extremely cautious with any potential fire ignition sources. Fires
have started from things like cigarettes, camp fires, welding or
brush clearing equipment, and dragging towing chains.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... Heat advisory in effect until 5 pm pdt this afternoon for
zones 34>36-40-41-44>46-547. (see laxnpwlox).

High wind watch in effect from late Wednesday night through
Friday morning for zones 44>46-53-54-88-547. (see laxnpwlox).

Red flag warning in effect from 1 am Thursday to 10 pm pdt
Friday for zones 240-241-244>246-253-254-288-547-548. (see laxrfwlox).

Pz... None.

Hazard potential outlook (fri-tue)
Hot and dry conditions along with strong santa ana winds are
expected Friday, especially la ventura counties. Fire weather
conditions will be critical to extreme.
