Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA Issued by National Weather Service San Francisco CA 1114 AM PDT Tue Mar 31 2020

SYNOPSIS. 31/106 AM.

Conditions will be warm and dry through Saturday then there is a slight chance of rain across the region late Sunday through early Tuesday. Temperatures will be cooler as the weak storm moves through but any snow will be well above the major passes.

SHORT TERM (TDY-THU). 31/938 AM.

Morning satellite imagery reveals filtered sunshine covering most of the region as widespread high clouds fill in from the SW. These high clouds are associated weak upper level low approaching far Southern California/Northern Baja. Additionally, patchy fog is also showing up in the Southern Salinas Valley and Paso Robles region. The Paso Robles Airport had reported dense earlier this morning, but latest observations shows rapid improvement. The fog will likely dissipate by 10 AM at the latest. The bigger weather impact today will be gusty offshore flow for southern SB County and the I5 Corridor later this afternoon. This will likely be a short fused wind event and will require a low end wind advisory to be issued. Per hi-res models and gradient strength wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be possible. Current thinking is wind advisory this afternoon through the middle of the night.

***From Previous Discussion***

Dry NW flow over the area. Some high clouds are spilling off of a weak disturbance to the SW and this will make skies partly cloudy today. There will be weak offshore flow this morning both from the east and north and this along will 578 DM hgts will make it the warmest day of the next 7. Almost all non mountain temps will be in the 70s and would not be surprised if a location or two hit 80 today.

A barely perceptible disturbance will move over the area this afternoon. It will do nothing except to increase the NW to N winds across the area. Gusty winds will develop across the SBA south coast (esp the Gaviota area), the I-5 corridor and the NW portion of the Antelope Vly. Some low end advisories may be needed in these areas. The eddy will be a little stronger and there will likely bring some stratus to the LA coast and San Gabriel Vly.

Not much change on Wednesday. Skies will be sunny save for the patches of morning low clouds. Max temps will fall 2 to 4 degrees as the hgts fall and may fall even more if the hgt falls come a little sooner than fcst.

Still gusty but slightly weaker winds again on tap for Wednesday night as the northerly grads relax some. A better eddy will bring more in the way of low clouds to the LA cst and lower vlys and perhaps into the VTA coast as well.

Not expecting much in the way of clouds on Thursday but a little trof will ripple over the state and usher in a little more cool air. Expect max temps to drop a few more degrees and end up 3 to 6 degrees blo normal.

LONG TERM (FRI-MON). 31/312 AM.

Hgts rise just a touch on Friday and max temps will nose up 1 to 2 degrees under mostly clear skies.

The EC and the GFS are not in the best of agreement on Saturday but both mdls have some sort of trof moving through the north of the state something late morning through early evening. All and all not the greatest of effects on the days weather. Skies will probably turn partly cloudy and max temps will sag down 2 to 4 degrees maybe a little more or maybe a little less depending on the onset of the lower hgts. The faster GFS would lead to a cooler day.

The EC and the GFS are struggling to figure out to handle the track of a cold upper low rotating out of BC. There has been little in the way of agreement between the mdls or from run to run. The ensembles, as is ofter the case when operational mdls are confused, have a much larger than normal solution spread.

The EC is the wetter of the two mdls but the GFS has trended toward the EC soln. Pretty sure every area will see some rain during the 48 hour period just not sure how much or exactly when. For now will broad brush in clouds and chc pops and wait for the mdls to converge on a solution.

Cooler for sure with max temps around 10 degrees blo normal.

AVIATION. 31/1814Z.

At 18z at KLAX . little change in depth of the marine inversion since morning. VFR for the forecast period.

Overall . Moderate confidence in the current TAFs. VFR at all area terminals as of 18z, at KPRB there is a thirty percent chance of LIFR/IFR returning after 01/12z. There is a twenty percent chance of IFR/MVFR CIGs after 11z at KSBP, KSMX, KSMO, KLAX, AND KLGB. Otherwise and elsewhere VFR conditions will prevail.

LAX . Moderate confidence in the current TAF. VFR then there is a twenty percent chance of IFR/MVFR CIGs after 01/11z. There is a less than ten percent chance of east winds greater than 8 knots 01/08z- 16z.

BUR . High confidence in the current TAF. VFR conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period.

MARINE. 31/945 AM.

For the outer waters . Conditions will be elevated to at least Small Craft Advisory (SCA) level through Saturday with the winds likely to increase to gale force this afternoon through late tomorrow, especially north of Point Sal. There is a thirty five percent chance that any gales will linger into Thursday night.

For the inner waters . For the western half of the Santa Barbara Channel, SCA level winds are likely today through Saturday, mostly during the late afternoon and evening hours. Additionally, SCA level winds are expected to develop this afternoon north of Point Sal before winds diminish late tonight. Elsewhere, winds and seas will remain below SCA levels through Friday with a forty percent chance of the winds becoming SCA level on Saturday.

There will be hazardous short period seas under 9 seconds this week across most of the waters

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.
