Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 435 AM PST Mon Dec 16 2019

SYNOPSIS. 16/435 AM.

Strong and gusty northeast winds will affect much of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties through Tuesday. There is a slight chance of showers across northern sections of the forecast area Wednesday. Otherwise, conditions will be dry through Saturday. There is a chance of rain in most areas Sunday,

SHORT TERM (TDY-WED). 16/410 AM.

Mostly clear skies across the region early this morning, except for some low clouds that have developed across the interior sections of SLO and SBA Counties. Expect those clouds to dissipate by mid to late morning, with a mostly sunny day expected across the region otherwise. Pressure gradients have trended sharply offshore during the past 24 hours, and the gradient between KLAX and KDAG was -3.2 as of 3 AM. Gradients should continue to become increasingly offshore this morning, then remain moderately offshore through the evening. All models have offshore gradients increasing tonight, peaking between -7 and -9 mb Tue morning.

While upper support is not too impressive, the sheer magnitude of the gradients, along with some cold air advection should make for a moderately to strong Santa Ana wind event, beginning this morning, with the peak of the winds expected late tonight and Tuesday morning. Wind Advisories are in effect for all of Ventura County, for the mountains of L.A. County, and for the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys. There will probably be some local High Wind Warning level gusts to 60 mph or so in the mountains Tue morning.

Gusty winds will likely affect some locations below passes and canyons from Malibu to the Hollywood Hills, but at this time, it appears that the wind direction will be too easterly for widespread advisory level winds there. Still, advisories may have to be expanded into the L.A. County coast and to Catalina Island and the vulnerable northeast facing harbors of Avalon and Two Harbors. It will likely take until at least late Tue evening for winds to drop below advisory levels in most areas.

It will be a fairly cool Santa Ana wind event, though with some ridging building into the region, there will likely be a few degrees of warming today, especially west of the mountains. The ridge axis will move to the east of the region on Tue as a large upper low moves into the eastern Pacific. High clouds will likely increase across the region on Tue, especially across SLO and SBA Counties, where it may become rather cloudy during the day. Max temps on Tue may be a bit higher in coastal areas, with little change or possibly some cooling elsewhere.

The upper low will open up into a negatively tilted trough and swing across CA late Tue night and Wed. Its associated frontal system may bring some rain to SLO and SBA Counties late Tue night and Wed, but all models have trended drier with the system. All models show the front dissipating as it moves south of SBA County as it becomes increasingly far removed from the best mid level dynamics, and as it encounters lingering offshore flow across L.A. and VTU Counties. Expect mainly just some clouds across L.A. and VTU Counties on Wed, with cooling across most of the region.

LONG TERM (THU-SUN). 16/433 AM.

Weak upper level ridging will move into the region on Thursday, then amplify a bit on Fri. Expect dry weather with a few degrees of warming each day. An upper trough will move into the eastern Pacific on Sat, causing an increase in high clouds. Max temps on Sat may be down slightly, especially across northern sections. The GFS is faster than the EC with the associated frontal system, bringing rain into the Central Coast by late Sat night, while the EC is about 12 hours slower. Current forecast with a slight chance of rain north of Pt Conception Sat night and a chance of rain across the entire region Sun looks reasonable.

AVIATION. 16/1205Z.

At 0918Z at KLAX, there was no marine layer, but there was a very weak inversion around 2200 ft. The top of the inversion was 12 degrees C.

High confidence in CAVU conds at all sites. There is a 20% chance for LIFR/IFR CIGs at KPRB from 14-17z this morning.

Moderate confidence in wind forecast timing for all sites. There is a 20% chance that KOXR,KCMA could see winds shift onshore late afternoon for a couple hours.

Lgt LLWS and LGT ocnl MDT TURBC over and around hier trrn.

KLAX . High confidence for 12z TAF with CAVU conds. Less confidence in wind fcst. There is a 30 percent chc of an easterly wind component exceeding 6 kt through 16Z. There is a 30 percent chc of VRB03KT winds aft 21Z.

KBUR . High confidence in 12z TAF with CAVU conds. Overall VFR conds expected. There is a 30 percent chc of 06012KT 13Z-16Z.

MARINE. 16/341 AM.

Outer Waters . A Small Craft Advisory (SCA) continues through mid morning for the middle zone PZZ673 as gusty NW winds continue reaching SCA thresholds. Otherwise, both the northern and southern zones are not meeting SCA winds and hazardous seas criteria at this time. There is a 50% chance that the southern zone (PZZ676) will need a SCA for offshore winds across the northern portion of the zone and continuing into Tuesday. Also On Tuesday and Tuesday night, there is a 40% chance of SCA level east to southeast winds across the remainder of the outer waters.

Inner Waters North of Pt Sal . Good confidence with SCA conds due to winds and hazardous seas will continue through late tonight. On Tuesday and Tuesday night, There is a 30% chance for SCA level east to southeast winds.

Inner Waters south of Point Conception . Moderate to high confidence in the current forecast. A SCA for both the inner water zones PZZ650-655 is in effect through late this afternoon. There will be a break into this evening. There is a 70% chance for SCA level NE winds once again needed for late this evening through Tuesday, especially across eastern sections between Ventura and Malibu to the Channel Islands as well as the San Pedro Channel to Avalon Harbor. Strongest winds are expected Tuesday morning.

BEACHES. 16/346 AM.

A HIGH SURF ADVISORY remains in effect for the Central Coast through this morning with surf between 8 and 12 feet. The highest surf will occur across west-northwest facing beaches. Strong rip currents and dangerous breaking waves are expected. Surf will begin to lower to below high surf advisory thresholds.

Another high surf event is possible beginning late Wednesday and Thursday for exposed west facing beaches.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . High Surf Advisory in effect until 3 PM PST this afternoon for zones 34-35. (See LAXCFWLOX).

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
