Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 1020 PM PDT Mon Apr 22 2024

SYNOPSIS
22/217 PM.

Strengthening onshore flow and a deepening marine layer will bring low clouds, fog, and drizzle to the coast and coastal valleys throughout this week. Cool conditions will continue, with high temperatures several degrees below normal each day this week.
A couple of weather disturbances will track across the area later in the week, bringing a small chance for light rain showers for mid to late week.

.SHORT TERM (MON-THU)...22/222 PM.

Strong onshore pressure gradients will persist through much of this week. These onshore gradients will further strengthen through mid-week in response to midlevel ridging focusing the strongest surface heating over the central Great Basin. Diurnally enhanced onshore gradients for LAX-DAG are forecast to reach 8-9 mb each day through Thursday. In addition, for Wednesday night into Thursday, a midlevel low will progress eastward over the East Pacific and across southern California. This will further reinforce and deepen the marine layer over coastal areas and coastal valleys later this week.

Widespread low clouds and fog are expected to accompany the deepening marine layer, which will also cool temperatures across the region. High temperatures are expected to be in the 60s in most areas each day, except rising into the 70s over the Antelope Valley away from the marine layer. In addition, the marine layer will significantly deepen to depths over 2500-3000 feet tonight into Tuesday and then depths over 4000 feet for Thursday. This will support drizzle over many areas -- especially during the evening, overnight, and morning hours. Dry conditions in the mid and upper troposphere will limit the potential for measurable rainfall, though a few light showers could accompany the passage of the midlevel low late Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

.LONG TERM (FRI-MON)...22/227 PM.

Following the passage of the aforementioned midlevel low, temperatures aloft will cool and onshore pressure gradients will weaken. These factors will allow the marine layer to lose depth and weaken to some extent by the end of this week, with the extent of fog and drizzle correspondingly lessening. Thereafter, further cooling aloft, decreasing onshore flow, and weakening of the marine layer will occur with the glancing influence of a deep midlevel trough amplifying over the Great Basin late Friday into the upcoming weekend. However, despite the weakening marine layer, cooling aloft will maintain high temperatures in the 60s in most areas through Friday. Thereafter, temperatures are expected to warm a few degrees by Sunday as midlevel heights rise behind the deeper trough. Regarding precipitation, there will be a slight chance for light showers Friday into Friday night in conjunction with the second disturbance glancing the area, which will be followed by dry conditions.

AVIATION
23/0137Z.

Moderate/Low confidence in coastal and valley TAFs and high confidence in desert TAFs. Lower confidence for coastal/valley sites due to uncertainties in timing of flight category changes.
For tonight, drizzle is likely for much of the coast as the marine layer grows, likely bringing MVFR to IFR CIGs . Low confidence in timing of lowest cigs and drizzle.

KLAX...Moderate to low confidence in 00Z TAF. Timing of flight category changes between IFR and MVFR conditions could be +/- 3 hours of current forecasts. No significant easterly wind component is expected.

KBUR...Moderate to low confidence in 00Z TAF. Lower confidence in timing of IFR conditions and drizzle.

MARINE
22/1019 PM.

For the Outer Waters, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. Today through Wednesday, high confidence in winds and seas remaining below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels. Wednesday night, there is a 40-50% chance for winds near SCA levels south of Point Conception. High confidence in winds increasing to SCA levels, with a 30% chance of Gale force winds across PZZ673 and PZZ676 Thursday. Winds continue to increase into Friday night, and there is a 60% chance for gales Friday night into Saturday. Seas increase Thursday, peaking near 10 feet Friday night into the weekend.

For the Inner Waters north of Point Sal, high confidence in current forecast. Today through Wednesday, winds and seas will remain below SCA levels.

For the Inner Waters south of Point Conception, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. Today through Wednesday morning, high confidence in winds and seas remaining below SCA levels.
There is a 30-40% chance for SCA level winds through the Santa Barbara Channel Wednesday evening.
