Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 533 PM PDT Fri Jul 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. 10/413 PM.

Afternoon temperatures will be well above normal on Saturday and Sunday then will slowly cool through the week. Coastal low clouds and fog will remain along the coast through the weekend then will become widespread and push into interior valleys by midweek.

SHORT TERM (TDY-MON). 10/212 PM.

The marine inversion early this afternoon was near 700 ft deep at LAX. Low clouds persisted along the immediate Central Coast and SBA County S coast into early this afternoon. These low clouds will probably linger at the beaches for the rest of the day. Otherwise, sunny skies over the region will continue into early evening. The NAM was forecasting pressure gradients from LAX-DAG to be around +7.3 mb late this afternoon. These strong onshore gradients will help to bring breezy to gusty S to W winds to the region this afternoon into early evening, with the highest gusts expected in the Antelope Valley and adjacent foothills. Temps across the forecast area this afternoon are expected to warm to about 3-8 deg above normal away from the immediate coast, with the warmest vlys and lower mtns topping out in the 90s to around 100, except 100-104 in the Antelope Vly.

A large and increasingly strong upper level high pressure system will build over AZ/NM into the weekend. Southern CA will be under the western periphery of the upper level high, with H5 heights over southwestern CA increasing to 596-597 dm on Sat before lowering slightly to around 594-595 dm for Sun. Very weak upper level troffiness should then move into the area on Mon with H5 heights lowering to around 592 dm.

The strong upper level ridging into srn CA will shrink the marine layer depth down to about 600 ft or less tonight thru Sun morning. The marine inversion should increase only slightly to perhaps 800 to 1000 ft deep Sun night into Mon morning. Low clouds and locally dense fog should affect portions of the SBA County Central coast and L.A. County coast tonight and Sat morning, and again Sat night into Sun morning. Low clouds and fog should expand to most coastal areas Sun night into Mon morning. Otherwise, mostly clear skies with just a few hi clouds at times can be expected to continue thru Mon.

Boundary layer, 950 mb and 850 mb temps will warm significantly thru Sun as well. As a result, surface temps will warm significantly thru the period, with very warm overnight lows in the 70s to around 80 this weekend especially in the foothills, lower mtns and deserts. Highs will be about 5-10 deg above normal on Sat, and about 6-12 deg above normal on Sun. The warmest vlys and lower mtns should reach the upper 90s to 104 Sat, and 100-106 on Sun. The Antelope Valley will be even hotter each day, and could reach as high as 104-108 degrees on Sun. Temperatures should turn about 5-10 deg cooler most areas on Mon with the warmest vlys and lower mtns reaching the 90s to near 100 except upper 90s to 103 in the Antelope Vly.

Due to the hot daytime temps and very warm overnight lows this weekend, a Heat Advisory is in effect for the SLO County interior valleys and mtns, the Cuyama Vly, and the L.A. County vlys and mtns from late Sat morning thru early Sun evening. In addition, an Excessive Heat Watch is in effect for the Antelope Valley for Sun. Please see the latest Non-Precipitation Weather Message (LAXNPWLOX) for further details on the Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Watch.

Onshore gradients (LAX-DAG) are forecast by the NAM to weaken Sat to +6.7 mb in the afternoon, then increase to +8.2 mb Sun afternoon and +9.3 mb Mon afternoon. Breezy to locally gusty S to W winds are expected to persist for many areas during the afternoon and evening hours, with the strongest winds continuing to be in the Antelope Vly and adjacent foothills. Light offshore flow will be possible night and morning hours over SLO/SBA Counties and interior VTU County as well thru the weekend.

LONG TERM (TUE-FRI). 10/212 PM.

Generally good agreement between the EC and GFS for the extended period with weak upper level troffiness lingering over srn CA Tue thru Wed before some upper level ridging slowly moves back in for Thu and Fri.

The marine layer will deepen some thru the period with night and morning low clouds and fog expanding along the coast into some the adjacent vlys thru the period. Otherwise, mostly clear skies will continue Tue thru Fri. Good onshore gradients each afternoon (GFS fcst LAX-DAG up to +9.5 mb by Wed afternoon) will bring more breezy to gusty S-W winds to the region each afternoon and evening, with the strongest gusts in the foothills, mtns and deserts.

There should be minor day-to-day temperature changes each day, with highs several degrees below normal for most areas thru the period. The warmest vlys and lower mtns should generally be in the mid 80s to lower 90s, except 90s to near 100 in the Antelope Vly.

AVIATION. 11/0030Z.

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.
