Northerly Winds Expected for Los Angeles; Cooler Temperatures Forecast

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Through today, a light offshore flow will remain, and temperatures will be comparable to Monday's. The arrival of an area of low pressure will bring about a cooling trend on Wednesday and Thursday. Increasing northerly winds will be followed by a re-establishment of offshore flow during the weekend, bringing much higher temperatures.

Today will be a quiet day, with mild offshore flow continuing, but with weaker winds than the day before.

Despite the fact that Camarillo has just increased its speed to 30 mph, it is not expected to become any stronger than that.

Due to the change to onshore flow tomorrow, temperatures today will be comparable to or slightly colder than those seen yesterday.

The wind will be the primary emphasis for the foreseeable future. It will start off with strong northwest winds Wednesday into early Thursday, then move to the north Thursday afternoon and nighttime, before finally turning to the northeast Friday morning.

From now through Thursday, the mountains should see a disproportionately high number of wind advisories and warnings.

An upper-level trough of low pressure is tunneling southward out of Canada, and onshore flow will resume on Wednesday as a result of this. It is possible that dense fog may develop tonight, particularly along the Central Coast, as surface pressure gradients move closer to neutral or slightly onshore along the coast.

Dense patchy fog around the coast of Los Angeles County cannot be ruled out, but the Central Coast seems to have the highest chance of seeing fog. Throughout the day on Wednesday, onshore pressure gradients will continue to move significantly to the north, and a milder day seems to be in the forecast at this time.

An Advisory-level onshore wind system is expected to develop throughout the inner slopes of the Los Angeles County mountains and into the Antelope Valley on Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. Forecast advice indicates advisory-level persistent winds for KPMD and KWJF, which agrees pretty well with the EPS ensemble members in terms of strength and frequency.
