Synopsis 16 105 pm.

High pressure will keep temperatures above normal today. Then on
Thursday, a low pressure trough will cool temperatures throughout
the region. Gusty northerly winds are expected Thursday through
early next week, especially across santa barbara and los angeles
counties.

Short term (tdy-sat) 16 213 pm.

High clouds continue to stream into the region today from the
southwest but having minimal impact. In fact temps today across
parts of la ventura counties have soared into the upper 80s and
90s as light offshore flow continues. However, a trough
approaching the pac NW is weakening the offshore (west east) flow
and that trend will continue into Thursday which will have several
impacts locally. First, it will be considerably cooler with highs
down a good 10-15 degrees. Second, low clouds will likely fill in
along the coastal areas south of sb county. And lastly, gusty
west to southwest winds will develop in the afternoon and may
reach advisory levels in the antelope valley.

Following the trough passage Thursday strong northerly flow will
return bringing gusty sundowner winds to SRN sb county and the i5
corridor, some of which may filter down into the adjacent valleys
and coastal areas including the central coast. The northerly flow
will be here for several days, waning slightly Friday into
Saturday but picking up again late Saturday as another trough
passage introduces additional upper air support. The Saturday
evening northerly wind event looks to be the strongest of the two
with 6-7mb northerly gradients from bfl and excellent upper
support. If models continue showing this it will likely be a
warning level wind event for SRN sb county and the i5 corridor,
with advisory level winds likely reaching some of the la ventura
valleys, sm mountains and some of the la ventura coast as well.

Temperatures will warm a few degrees Fri Sat as gradients turn
offshore (mainly coast valleys due to downslope effects) but the
upper ridge will still be well to the west over the pacific ocean
so the air mass as a whole will be relatively cool.

Long term (sun-wed) 16 223 pm.

Offshore flow will continue Sunday through Tuesday while at the
same time the ridge over the pacific will shift east and park
itself over the west coast. Temps will warm a few more degrees
Sunday then really jump up Mon Tue into the lower 90s for some
inland coastal areas and mid 90s for some of the valleys. With the
upper ridge right overhead upper support for winds will be
weakening considerably. Still expecting some gusty north to
northeast winds on Sunday, possibly advisory levels in some areas.

Then much weaker Monday and Tuesday.

Light onshore flow returns Wednesday and the ridge weakens as well
so several degrees of cooling expected.

Aviation 16 1836z.

At 1746z at klax, the marine layer was 900 feet deep. The top of
the inversion was near 1400 feet with a temperature of 26 c.

Good confidence in all 18z tafs. An area of low pressure
approaches the region on Thursday, so marine layer coverage will
increase tonight into Thursday, with only ksba getting left out of
the marine cloud action.

Klax... Good confidence in 18z taf. There is a 30 percent chance of
marine clouds arriving plus or minus two hours from forecasted
time. Any east wind component will remain less than 8 knots.

Kbur... .Good confidence in 18z taf. There is a 40 percent chance
of ifr ceiling Thursday morning.

Marine 16 210 pm.

Outer waters... Moderate confidence for small craft advisory (sca)
level gusts this morning across the outer waters S of point sal
increasing to higher confidence by this afternoon. There is a 40%
chance for SCA level gusts for the northern waters through mid
morning, then higher confidence for SCA level gusts this afternoon.

Good confidence that SCA NW wind gusts and steep seas will continue
through Thursday mid afternoon. At that time, there will be a 60%
chance for gale force winds occurring by mid Thursday afternoon through
mid morning Friday. A gale watch has been issued valid from Thursday
mid afternoon through mid morning Friday for the entire outer waters.

After a brief decrease in winds Friday morning to SCA level gusts,
there is a 50% chance for another round of gale force winds by Friday
night or Saturday morning continuing into the weekend.

Inner waters N of point sal... Winds will remain below SCA levels
through early Thursday. Moderate to high confidence in winds increasing
to SCA level Thursday afternoon through Thursday evening. With a 20%
chance for local gale force winds Thursday evening.

For the inner waters south of point conception... Winds will remain
below SCA levels through early Thursday, although there is a 30
percent chance of SCA winds for a brief time late tonight or early
thu morning. Moderate to high confidence in winds increasing to
sca level Thursday afternoon over the western half of the santa
barbara channel. There is a 30% chance for local gale force gusts
across the western portion Thursday evening. There will be a 50%
chance for SCA level gusts across the western portion of the santa
barbara channel both Fri and Sat late afternoon and evening
hours, then a 30-40% chance for Sunday afternoon and evening.

For the santa monica bay... There is a 50% chance for northerly sca
level gusts late Thursday evening through Friday mid morning.

Winds will then shift out of the south near shore, east of malibu
and under SCA level thresholds by late morning into the afternoon
hours.

A long-period, large NW swell is expected to move into the waters
on Thursday and will likely persist through the weekend.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory in effect until 3 pm pdt Thursday for
zones 670-673-676. (see laxmwwlox).

Gale watch in effect from Thursday afternoon through Friday
morning for zones 670-673-676. (see laxmwwlox).

Hazard potential outlook (sat-wed)
Moderate to strong northerly winds are expected through Sunday,
focused over santa barbara and los angeles counties. These winds
may produce damaging gusts near 60 mph Saturday night around the
santa ynez range and the interstate 5 corridor. These winds and
moderately dry conditions may result in critical fire weather
conditions in santa barbara county. Gusty santa ana winds are
possible Sunday into Monday morning with critical fire weather
conditions possible over los angeles and ventura counties.

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.
