Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 817 PM PDT Tue Jun 18 2024

SYNOPSIS
18/435 PM.

Onshore flow will maintain near-normal temperatures across the region through Thursday. Night through morning low clouds and fog will continue along the coastal and valley areas. A warming trend will establish on Friday with above normal temperatures developing across the valleys, mountains, and desert through the weekend, and likely into early next week. Dangerously hot weather is possible across the interior on Saturday and Sunday.

.SHORT TERM (TUE-FRI)...18/801 PM.

***UPDATE***

Relatively quiet weather this evening with a broad trough taking hold over the region. Wind gusts of 30-50 mph were noted across southwest Santa Barbara County where a Wind Advisory is in effect through 3 am. Breezy (but sub-advisory) and dry conditions will likely bring elevated fire weather conditions well into the evening for the I-5 corridor in the mountains and vicinity. A weaker eddy tonight may be a bit slower in pushing clouds into the LA County valleys along with western Ventura and Southern Santa Barbara County. The latter areas mentioned have a 20-30 percent of remaining mostly clear overnight as the marine layer has shrunk to around 1500 feet deep. An increase in cyclonic flow aloft and repositioning of the trough axis just to our west Wednesday may wedge low clouds against the coast across at least a portion of the area between Santa Barbara City and Palos Verdes for most of if not all day, potentially leading to little to no clearing along some immediate coastal areas. Where this occurs daytime highs Wednesday may only reach the low 60s. The Central Coast is also expecting a decent cool down into Wednesday with most other areas likely experiencing similar temperatures to today (widespread 80s to near 90 away from the coast).

***From Previous Discussion***

A broad upper-level trough of low pressure over the western States will keep an onshore flow pattern in place, likely strengthening into Wednesday as offshore push weakens. This will bring some cooling to the region and take most areas back down to near normal for this time of year. A return of coastal stratus is expected tonight through Wednesday for most areas south of Point Conception. The marine layer depth will thin some into Wednesday and Thursday as 500 mb heights climb slightly, but in general, an onshore flow pattern should keep low clouds and fog a staple of the weather for the coastal and valley areas through Thursday.

A northerly surface pressure gradient across the region the last several days will continue to wane. A wind advisory was allowed to expire through the Interstate 5 Corridor earlier, but gusty Sundowner winds will continue over the coming afternoons and evening. A wind advisory remains in effect from this afternoon through 3 am PDT tonight for the Southwestern Coast of Santa Barbara County and the Santa Ynez mountains, but there is a moderate-to-high chance that advisory level winds may develop again on Wednesday afternoon and evening across the same areas.
Winds should weaken gradually each afternoon and evening as the northerly gradient fades.

Onshore flow will weaken for late week as high pressure aloft over the Eastern Seaboard today starts to slide closer to the region on Friday. 500 mb heights will start to climb as upper-level troughing vacates the region. A warming trend will take shape on Friday and likely turn more significant over the weekend.

.LONG TERM (SAT-TUE)...18/231 PM.

High pressure aloft will continue to slide west through Sunday, settling into the Desert Southwest while building to near 595 decameters on Monday. The latest forecast continue to break away from NBM values to advertise hot conditions developing across the region for the weekend. Dangerously hot conditions, if they were to develop, would likely descend upon the Antelope Valley over the weekend. Low confidence should be exercised in the low cloud forecast as the coverage could be vastly overdone. Low clouds could be confined to the coast over the weekend, which would warm temperatures by a couple of degrees across the valley areas. Above normal temperatures are likely to continue into early next week.

AVIATION
19/0029Z.

At 00Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 1400 feet deep. The top of the inversion was at 2100 ft with a temperature of 19 deg C.

Good confidence in TAFs for KPRB, KSBP, KSMX, KPMD and KWJF.

Moderate confidence in TAFs for KSBA, KOXR, KCMA, KSMO, KLAX, KLGB, KBUR, KVNY. There is a 20-30 percent chance that the flight category associated with cigs is one lower than forecast. Flight category changes may be off by 2 hours with a 10-20 percent chance of limited to no clearing for KLAX, KSMO, KSBA.

There is a 20-30 percent chance that VFR conds prevail for KBUR, KVNY, KCMA, and KSBA.

KLAX...Moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 20 percent chance of at least brief IFR cigs/vsbys 04-14Z. Any east wind component should be less than 6 knots.

KBUR...Moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 20-30 percent chance that VFR conditions prevail. There is a 20 percent chance of at least brief LIFR cigs/vsbys 08-14Z.
