Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 136 PM PDT Sun Jun 23 2024

SYNOPSIS
23/117 PM.

Dangerously hot weather will continue away from the coast as high pressure aloft remain in place across much of the southern United States. There will be a gradual cooling trend over many locations during the upcoming week, except for the Antelope Valley where conditions will stay very hot into mid- week. There is a slight chance of a few thunderstorms through tonight.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...23/132 PM.

Temperatures within the coastal margin have warmed significantly today compared to yesterday thanks in part to the marine layer being disrupted by mid level moisture and associated clouds.
Excessive heat products with moderate to high heat impacts continue through this evening away from the immediate coast, except for through Thursday for the Antelope Valley. We will likely need to extend heat products for some interior areas into early next week, probably at just the advisory level as at least some cooling is expected.

The moisture associated with the mid cloud deck continue to support a 5-15 percent chance (highest across the interior mountains) of a thunderstorm across the region today with afternoon cumulus and a shower or two already showing up along the high terrain. Dangerous cloud- to- ground lightning and damaging wind would be the main concerns should a stronger thunderstorm or two form with climatologically favored areas for this being the eastern San Gabriel mountains into the Antelope Valley and Ventura mountains west to the Santa Barbara mountains (excluding the Santa Ynez Range). Generally weak flow aloft would likely support slow storm movement towards the north or northeast around 10 mph with anchoring or back building along the high terrain possible.

A reorientation of the flow aloft to the southwest to west and departure of mid level moisture should support increased and breezy onshore winds Monday into Tuesday, supporting the aforementioned cooling trend most notable for coasts and coastal valleys. The marine layer may struggle to form clouds for a day or two for Los Angeles, Ventura, and Southern Santa Barbara Counties. Where low clouds do form, patchy dense fog will be possible through at least Monday as the ridge aloft keeps a shallow marine layer in place.

.LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...23/132 PM.

Only moderate confidence in the extended period as there is a 60-70 percent chance for significant rebound in the heat (as hot if not hotter for many areas) next weekend. Similar to the ongoing heat, the marine layer will probably somewhat limit the heat and related impacts near the coast. Low to moderate heat risk will continue Thursday through Friday or Saturday, before potentially increasing to moderate to high levels next weekend. If the higher heat scenario plays out, there may be a monsoon push into at least Los Angeles County towards the end of the weekend or into early next week. Breezy northwest to onshore winds will continue, potentially nearing advisory levels for southwest Santa Barbara County in particular late in the week.

AVIATION
23/1758Z.

At 1715Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 500 feet deep. The top of the inversion was at 2700 ft with a temperature of 28 deg C.

Very good confidence in valley TAFs, KLGB and desert TAFS.

Moderate confidence in TAFs for KSMX and KSBP with a 50-60 percent chc of LIFR conds this evening into Mon morning.

Moderate confidence remainder of coastal TAFS. Vis at KSBA, KOXR and KCMA will likely vary frequently between 1/4SM and 3/4SM between about 07Z-15Z. There is a 30 percent chc of VIS less than a mile at KLAX and KSMO at that times tonight into Mon morning.

There is a 10-15 percent chance of SHRA or TSRA this afternoon and evening.

KLAX...Moderate confidence in TAF. There is a 25 percent chc BKN005 conds arriving as early as 03Z. There is a 15 percent chance of SHRA or TSRA 20Z-06Z. Good confidence that any east wind component will be under 5kt.

KBUR...High confidence in TAF. There is a 15 percent chance of SHRA or TSRA 20Z-06Z.

MARINE
23/128 PM.

For the Outer Waters, high confidence in current forecast. Conds will likely remain below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels through Wednesday morning. NW winds are forecast to increase to SCA levels Wednesday afternoon then linger for much of the time through Friday night.

For the Inner Waters north of Point Sal, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. Conds will likely remain below SCA levels through Wednesday morning. SCA level wind gusts are then expected mainly afternoon and evening hours Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. There is then a 30% chance of SCA level wind gusts Friday afternoon and evening.

For the inner waters south of Point Conception, moderate to high confidence in current forecast. SCA winds are not expected over most of the area through Friday night, except for the western third of the Santa Barbara Channel where there is a 40% chance of SCA level wind gusts mainly afternoons and evenings Wednesday through Friday.

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms mainly over the northern waters through this evening. In addition, areas of dense fog will likely continue at times through early this week. Please see the Marine Weather Statement (LAXMWSLOX) for information of the thunderstorm potential, as well as the potential for dense fog.
