Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA 517 PM PDT Tue Jul 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. 07/515 PM.

Low clouds are expected for some coastal areas tonight, mainly the Central Coast and L.A. Coast. Temperatures will be a little cooler Wednesday, especially for areas that see more coastal clouds. High pressure will build over the region late this week and through the weekend, bringing very warm and dry conditions to the area with elevated fire weather conditions.

SHORT TERM (TDY-FRI). 07/145 PM.

12Z models in good synoptic agreement through the short term period. At upper levels, broad cyclonic flow will persist through Wednesday then high pressure will begin to strengthen around the Four Corners area. Near the surface, weak to moderate onshore flow will prevail with a bit of northerly offshore gradient tonight.

Forecast-wise, do not anticipate any major issues in the short term. Main challenge will be attempting to figure out coverage of marine layer stratus. Currently, sounding data indicates marine inversion around 1000-1500 feet deep. Depth should remain relatively persistent tonight, but should gradually become more shallow Wednesday night and Thursday night (as H5 heights increase). Generally, coverage of stratus/fog should peak tonight with rather widespread stratus/fog across the coastal plain (and inching into the lower coastal valleys). For Wednesday night and Thursday night, areal extent should decrease each night. Other than any potential stratus, skies should remain mostly clear through Friday.

As for temperatures, Wednesday will be the coolest day in the short term. With less marine influence and rising thicknesses and H5 heights, a warming trend is on tap for Thursday and Friday. Wednesday and Thursday. In fact by Friday, most coastal valley locales will be in the 90s with temperatures around 100 across interior valleys and the deserts.

As for winds, no major issues anticipated. With lingering northerly offshore gradients tonight, some locally gusty north winds can be expected across the Santa Ynez Range and I-5 Corridor. However, these winds are expected to remain below advisory levels. Otherwise, just typical onshore winds are expected each afternoon/evening with the gustiest winds across interior sections.

LONG TERM (SAT-TUE). 07/145 PM.

For the extended, 12Z models are in very good synoptic agreement. At upper levels, 600 DM high develops near the Four Corners area Friday/Saturday then slowly weakens Sunday/Monday. Near the surface, weak to moderate onshore flow will continue.

Forecast-wise, main story for the extended will be the heat. As the upper level high builds, temperatures will be on climb. At this time, it looks like Saturday/Sunday will be the warmest days with coastal valley locales in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees with low 100s across interior sections while overnight low temperatures remain on the warm side. On Monday/Tuesday, temperatures will cool as ridge weakens, but still will be quite warm. Looking at the Heat Risk grids, there may be the need for some non-routine heat products in some areas Saturday/Sunday. So, will need to monitor this potential closely over the next few days.

Otherwise, secondary concern will be the potential for some influx of monsoonal moisture. At this time, models look to keep any potential monsoonal moisture and showers well south and east of our forecast area. However, this will also need to be monitored closely. So, will go with mostly clear skies through the weekend, but would not be surprised to see some partly cloudy conditions this weekend (especially over Los Angeles county).

AVIATION. 08/0013Z.

At 2300z at KLAX . The inversion was around 1700 feet deep. The top of the inversion was near 2600 feet with a temperature of 24 degrees Celsius.

Overall . Moderate confidence in the coastal TAFs and high confidence for all others. LIFR/IFR conditions expected for KSBP and KSMX overnight, but lower confidence in timing with a 30% chance the cigs are periodic in nature. IFR conditions expected for the LA coastal sites with a 20% chance at KBUR and KVNY 09z- 15Z. KOXR has a 40% chance of VFR conditions through the period.

KLAX . Moderate confidence in the 00Z TAF. IFR conditions will 09Z-15Z, but timing could differ by up to 2 hrs. 20% chance of MVFR conds instead of IFR. There is a less than ten percent chance of east winds greater than 8 kts overnight.

KBUR . High confidence in the current TAF. There is a twenty percent chance of IFR conditions 09Z-15Z.

MARINE. 07/217 PM.

For the Outer Waters . Gale force winds will continue thru late tonight, though they may drop below gale force for a few hours in some areas. There will be Small Craft Advisory (SCA) conditions Wed/Wed night. There is a forty percent chance of SCA level NW winds Thu thru Sun, with the best chance in the northern and central outer waters zones (PZZ670/673).

For the Inner Waters north of Pt Sal. Seas will be near or above SCA thresholds thru Wed evening. NW winds will reach SCA levels this afternoon and evening and again Wed afternoon/evening. Conditions will be below SCA levels late Wed night thru Fri morning. There is a 40% chance of SCA level NW winds during the afternoon/evening hours Fri/Sat/Sun.

For the Inner Waters south of Pt Conception. There will be SCA level winds across the western half of the SBA Channel late this afternoon thru late tonight. Otherwise and elsewhere, conditions will remain below SCA levels through Sunday.

There will be dangerous steep seas across much of the waters through Wed night.

FIRE WEATHER. 07/523 AM.

A cooling trend is expected today through Wednesday as a weak upper level trough of low pressure passes to the north and onshore pressure gradients increase. Despite the cooling trend, interior areas will continue to see humidities between 10 and 20 percent along with onshore wind gusts between 25 and 35 mph, with isolated gusts as high as 45 mph in the foothills of the Antelope Valley. Hotter and drier conditions are expected to return to the region Friday through Sunday, with the likelihood for triple digit temperatures across warmest interior areas. This in combination with gusty onshore winds during the afternoon and evening hours will likely bring elevated fire weather concerns Friday through Sunday across interior areas.

LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CA . NONE. PZ . Small Craft Advisory in effect until 9 PM PDT Wednesday for zone 645. (See LAXMWWLOX). Small Craft Advisory in effect until 3 AM PDT Wednesday for zone 650. (See LAXMWWLOX). Gale Warning in effect until 3 AM PDT Wednesday for zones 670-673-676. (See LAXMWWLOX).

.HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (FRI-TUE).

Hot temperatures will return to sections of the coastal and interior valleys of southwest California Saturday through Monday. Moderate to high heat risk will be possible. Additionally, there will be elevated fire weather conditions away from the coast.
