...UPDATED National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
856pm PST Monday Feb 6 2023

Synopsis
06/752 PM.

Increasing Santa Ana winds are expected into Tuesday morning across portions of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Conditions through Thursday are expected to be breezy and clear, with a warming trend to above normal temperatures. Much cooler temperatures are expected for the weekend with a chance of showers.

Short Term - Monday through Thursday
06/147 PM.

Northerly winds this morning are transitioning to northeast as high pressure builds over Nevada and a low grade Santa Ana event begins. Breezy offshore winds will be here through Thursday, though it now looks like Tuesday will be the peak and a wind advisory has been issued for the usual Santa Ana wind favored portions of LA/Ventura Counties through 1pm. Winds expected to decrease thereafter but remain breezy through Thursday.

Building high pressure this week in tandem with the offshore flow will push daytime temps to around 10 degrees above normal by Thursday with highs in the mid to upper 70s and even a sprinkling of low 80s possible across the coastal valleys.

Long Term - Friday through Monday
06/203 PM.

A rapid cooling trend will begin Friday as models are showing a cold upper low moving into California over the weekend. Still a lot of uncertainty in terms of precipitation chances and timing but cluster analysis correlates well with the 12z ensemble means which show heigheights falling into the mid 540s by Saturday. PW means are only around 0.4" which is very low so precip, if any, would be light and scattered in this scenario. The main determining factor for rain locally will be the track of the low which likely will remain highly uncertain until much closer to the weekend. All models are pushing the low out of the area by next Monday morning so the work week should begin dry but still on the cool side.

Marine
06/851 PM.

Lingering 10+ foot seas and gusts to 25 knots across the outer waters has warranted an extension of the current Small Craft Advisories (SCA). Seas and winds should diminish below SCA (Small Craft Advisory) levels tonight, but there is a 30% chance that seas take a few hours longer to diminish below advisory levels.

A Small Craft Advisory has been issued for the nearshore portions of the inner waters from Ventura to Santa Monica and out to the islands in the southern California bight to account for increasing northeast winds late tonight through Tuesday morning.

There is 50-60% chance for gusty northeast winds and wind waves reaching the front side of east facing harbors on Catalina Island like Avalon Harbor and Two Harbors as well as the Smugglers Cove area on Santa Cruz Island. Northeast winds of 15 to 25 knots and wind waves of 3 to 5 feet will be possible tonight into Tuesday morning for this portion of the waters.

Another round of widespread gusty northwest to north winds and steep, SCA (Small Craft Advisory) level seas is possible with a moisture starved winter storm this weekend.

Beaches
06/851 PM.

The combination of a 10-13 foot northwesterly swell and steep short-period wind waves will continue to bring surf issues to area beaches through tonight.

HIGH SURF ADVISORIES are in effect for the Central Coast and the Ventura county coast through tonight. Surf heigheights of 7-10 feet are expected across the Central Coast and 4-7 feet surf is expected along the Ventura county coast.

For the coastal areas of Los Angeles and southern Santa Barbara counties, surf heigheights will range between 3 and 6 feet. Therefore, BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENTS are in effect through tonight.

There is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause injury, wash people off beaches and rocks, and capsize small boats near shore.

See LAXCFWLOX for the latest details.
