Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 323 AM PDT Mon Jun 24 2024

SYNOPSIS
24/224 AM.

Dangerously hot weather will continue away from the coast especially over the Antelope Valley. Elsewhere, there will be a gradual cooling trend through the week. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms today over the mountains and SLO county.

.SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...24/247 AM.

A lobe of PVA currently south of the Channel Islands is moving from S to N. It has a few embedded showers in it and will bring a slight chc (15 percent) of a shower or TSTM to the Channel Islands, The Santa Barbara Channel and SBA county this morning.
Otherwise skies will be partly cloudy as debris clouds float overhead. Only very minimal marine layer clouds today as the clouds and humidity aloft have greatly disrupted the stratus formation. The onshore flow this afternoon will be about 3 mb strong than ydy and this will bring noticeable cooling to the coasts and vlys. 591 dam hgts however will continue to bring the heat to the interior. The vlys will not be warm enough for heat advisories and these were cancelled. A heat warning was added for the Western Antelope Foothills where triple digit heat will occur.
One more day of heat advisories for the interior of SLO and SBA counties as there will be little or no change in temps from ydy's readings. Mid level moisture will combine with afternoon solar induced instability over the mtns to bring a slight chc (20 percent) of TSTMs to the higher peaks of the LA/VTA mtns. This morning's vort lobe will be over SLO county this afternoon and will also generate the same slight chc of TSTMs.

The strong onshore push will likely generate more coastal low clouds tonight but given how disorganized the marine layer is now it will likely take much longer for the clouds to develop. The upper high will shift a little to the SW and this will bring dry SW flow over the area and squash the risk of convection. Most cst/vly locations away from the beaches will cool 2 to 5 degrees and will end up 3 to 6 degrees above normal. The Antelope Vly will continue to sizzle under 593 dam hgts and the heat warning will persist there.

An upper will will move through the PAC NW on Wednesday. Weak troffing will move over CA and hgts will drop to 588 dam. Onshore flow will remain strong and there will be more and earlier arriving marine layer stratus. The beaches will see slower clearing. Most areas will cool 2 to 4 degrees which may be enough over the Antelope Vly to end the Heat Warning early. The csts/vlys will cool to near normal while the inland areas will end up 4 to 6 degrees above normal.

.LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...24/322 AM.

Both the EC and GFS as well as most of their respective ensembles have trended away from their rather dire heat predictions they both had earlier. Now the xtnd fcst looks pretty static. The upper high will migrate to the east while a fairly stationary troffing pattern sits over the west coast. This will keep dry SW flow over the area and eliminate any convective threat. The marine layer will be very shallow and may behave as it has lately with hardly any inland penetration.

Max temps will slowly fall through Saturday as hgts fall. By Saturday max temps will be 2 to 4 degrees blo normal. Onshore flow will weaken some on Sunday and this will bring a few degrees of warming to the area.

AVIATION
24/0620Z.

At 0515Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 600 feet deep. The top of the inversion was at 2000 ft with a temperature of 28 deg C.

High confidence in TAFs for KPRB, KLGB, KBUR, KVNY, KPMD and KWJF.

Good confidence in TAFs for KSBA, KOXR, KCMA, KSMO and KLAX. There is a 30 percent chc of MVFR vis 13Z-16Z and a 20 percent chc of LIFR Cig/Vis 13Z-16Z.

Low confidence in TAFs for KSMX and KSBP where there is a 40 percent chc of LIFR cig/vis 11Z-16Z.

KLAX...Good confidence in TAF. There is a 30 percent chc of 4SM HZ conds 13Z-16Z. There is a 20 percent chc of 2SM BR OVC002 conds 11Z-16Z. Good confidence that any east wind component will be under 5kt.

KBUR...High confidence in TAF.

MARINE
24/305 AM.

Moderate-to-high confidence in the winds and sea forecast. Low confidence in the expected weather and possible gusty winds associated with any thunderstorm activity.

For the Outer Waters and the inner waters along the Central Coast, conditions expected to stay below Small Craft Advisory (SCA)
levels through Tuesday night, except for local gusty wind around Point Conception and the Channel Islands during the afternoon/evenings. Wednesday through Friday night, there is a 50-70 percent chance of SCA level winds, that will peak in the afternoon and evenings. Choppy SCA level seas are also likely for this time period.

Inside the southern California bight, winds and seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels through at least early Wednesday. There is a around a 50% percent chance of SCA level winds developing across the Santa Barbara Channel, Wednesday afternoon and evening, and again Thursday afternoon and evening.

In addition, a thunderstorm is currently occuring south of the Channel Islands, and chances for thunderstorms will continue over the waters through this evening, as remnant moisture aloft from post- tropical Cyclone Alberto move over the region. Otherwise, a shallow marine layer depth will continue areas of dense fog this morning.
