Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 552 PM PDT Tue Apr 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. 07/158 PM.

Scattered rain and mountain snow showers will continue through at least early Friday. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms Wednesday in LA/Ventura Counties, including across the adjacent coastal waters. The weekend will be dry with a slow warming trend.

SHORT TERM (TDY-FRI). 07/147 PM.

The next little wave of showers is indeed moving into LA County this afternoon with the expectation that it will rotate counterclockwise tonight and increase shower activity to areas to the northwest. Models are zoning in on SLO and nrn SB Counties, particularly the interior portions, as getting the lion's share of the precip tonight along with the eastern San Gabriels. Meanwhile other areas will get less and some areas very little, especially srn SB and Ventura Counties which will be in a relative donut hole in the precip coverage. This is still a tricky, and relatively low confidence forecast given the showery nature of the precip and the usual unknowns with cutoff lows.

After this moves through later tonight tomorrow's shower activity is looking pretty isolated and mostly focused over the mountains. Models show the upper low moving slowly inland near San Diego Wednesday afternoon/evening and there is a little instability with it, though again mostly over the higher terrain, and will leave in the thunderstorm chances across LA/Ventura counties tomorrow just in case an isolated storm pops up.

While models differ with the track of the low after it moves inland there is good overall consensus on increasing shower activity again late Wednesday night into Thursday as moisture wraps around the back side of the low. In fact, in all areas except possibly SLO County more rain is expected to fall Thursday into Thursday night than tonight and tomorrow. Pops have been increased during this time as well as QPF, though given that there isn't much orographic lift going on and minimal, if any, convection rain rates should be light to moderate at best and shouldn't pose significant issues.

Snow levels today have been at or above 5000' and unless the low tracks farther north it's likely they won't get much lower than that through the duration of this event. It's possible the very top of the Grapevine on Interstate 5 could see a mix of rain and snow at some point but it's unlikely to accumulate at pass level. However, due to the now increased duration of the precip the current slate of winter hazards has been extended another 24 hours through early Friday morning.

LONG TERM (SAT-TUE). 07/152 PM.

A majority of ensemble solutions now showing scattered light showers continuing in eastern LA County through Friday afternoon before finally exiting the area by Friday night. After that it looks dry and warmer with highs getting back to near normal levels by early next week. Beyond that models look pretty dry the rest of next week with no wind issues or big temperature swings either way.

AVIATION. 08/0049Z.

At 00Z at KLAX, There was a 10000 ft deep moist layer with no inversion.

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.
