Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 859 PM PDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. 01/837 PM.

A slow moving low pressure system to the south will keep night to morning coastal clouds and additional clouds over southern portions of our area through Wednesday morning before high pressure builds in. Temperatures will be increasing into Wednesday, but will abruptly cool by Friday. Gusty northwest winds are expected for the weekend and warming temperatures into early next week.

SHORT TERM (MON-THU). 01/855 PM.

The latest satellite imagery shows a cutoff trough of low pressure about 350 miles southwest of Point Conception, while an upper- level ridge of high pressure remains centered over west Texas. The region will sit between the two weather system through Wednesday, with the ridge building back to the west. Southerly flow aloft this evening will shift to southeasterly on Tuesday and bring a bit of an offshore component into the flow pattern. A warming trend is expected over the next couple along with weakening onshore flow. Surface pressure gradients are already weakening this evening. 500 mb heights will rise through Tuesday night, then start to decline thereafter. Middle and high level cloudiness will continue to stream across the area through Tuesday from the trough to the southwest.

Main concern for the short-term forecast is the possibility of showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon and evening over the mountains and desert. Southeast flow aloft could shift the window open for mid-level moisture to move north into area. Both GFS and NAM-WRF solutions suggest enough instability and moisture to work with and model sounding from the NAM-WRF solutions shows a favorable profile over the Ventura and Santa Barbara County mountains. The steering flow aloft could drift these storm northwest into the SLO County, Cuyama, and Antelope Valleys. the next shift will be briefed accordingly.

***From Previous Discussion***

The warm up will quickly reverse Thursday as onshore flow returns and a strong eddy develops. Will likely see low clouds returning to areas south of Pt Conception with slow afternoon clearing and much cooler temps.

LONG TERM (FRI-MON). 01/154 PM.

The eddy circulation will continue into Friday as the upper low moves onshore somewhere between Pt Conception and the MX border. The marine layer will likely deepen to 3000-5000' and clouds pushing well up the south facing coastal slopes. This pattern often results in morning drizzle for many areas south of Pt Conception but either way expect additional cooling with highs dropping a few degrees below normal in most areas and very slow clearing.

The upper low will move east over the weekend and models are showing a pretty strong northwest flow developing behind it. If current gradients hold winds would easily be advisory level in srn SB County, the I5 corridor and the Antelope Valley, and near advisory for the Central Coast.

A broad upper level trough will develop along the coast late in the weekend and continue through early next week maintaining gusty west to northwest winds in the same areas. Temps will climb back to normal levels by Sunday or Monday. Mostly clear skies through the period except possibly some marine layer clouds in coastal LA County.

Looks like temperatures will bounce back up to above normal levels for the latter half of next week as high pressure returns and onshore flow weakens.

AVIATION. 02/0107Z.

At 23Z, the marine layer depth was around 600 feet deep at KLAX. The top of the inversion was near 1300 feet with a temperature near 25 degrees Celsius.

Moderate-to-high confidence in the current forecast. Less confidence in flight categories for coastal terminals. Higher confidence for timing for coastal terminals and in timing and flight categories for terminals away from the coast. There is a chance of LIFR to IFR conditions at coastal terminals highest for coastal terminals north of Point Conception.

KLAX . There is a 30 percent chance of LIFR to IFR conditions between 10Z and 16Z. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected through the period.

KBUR . VFR conditions are expected through the period. No wind issues are expected at this time.

MARINE. 01/831 PM.

Moderate to high confidence in the current forecast. Gusty west to northwest winds will continue through tonight over most of the coastal waters south of Point Sal. A widespread short period swell will dominate the waves through tonight. Similar but weaker conditions expected on Tuesday, with a 40 percent chance of low- end SCA from Point Conception to San Nicolas Island. There is a 30 percent chance that SCA level winds could develop through the Santa Barbara Channel Tuesday afternoon and evening. Better confidence in more widespread and stronger SCA level winds on Wednesday, focused from the Central Coast to San Nicolas Island.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . Wind Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 39-52. (See LAXNPWLOX). PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Tuesday for zones 650-655-673-676. (See LAXMWWLOX).

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (THU-MON).

Gusty northwest winds are possible in southern SB County and the I5 corridor and Antelope Valley Saturday through Monday.

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

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.
