(EXTRACTED FROM FXUS66 KLOX 211157)
At 1123Z at KLAX, the marine was 1500 feet deep. Likely deeper
across inland areas. The top of the inversion was 3800 feet with
a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.
N of Point Conception...Moderate confidence with VLIFR to IFR
conds through 18z this morning. Southern surge of stratus could
keep low clouds lingering near the coast into this afternoon. 50%
chance for cigs to linger after 18z for coastal tafs. High
confidence with KPRB TAF. Lower confidence with timing of return
of stratus tonight. There is a chance that stratus will be more
patchy in nature but continue to be LIFR/IFR with earlier scour
out times Saturday morning.
S of Point Conception...Higher confidence with MVFR cigs for
coastal TAFS. the SE flow was beginning to pull low clouds away
from valley TAF sites. Lower confidence with MVFR cigs and scour
out times for Valley TAF sites. Moderate confidence for similar
return of low clouds with MVFR and 30% chance for IFR cigs early
this evening before going up a category. Scour out times should be
an hour earlier with higher confidence.
KLAX...Moderate confidence in 12z TAF. There is a 30% chance that
MVFR cigs will linger a few hours past 18z this afternoon. There
is a 30 percent chc of an east wind component of 8 kt through 16z.
KBUR...Low confidence in 12z TAF due to stratus pulling out from
east to west across valleys this morning. MVFR cigs should scour
out before 16z. 50% chance that cigs could become VFR by 14z. Low
confidence if IFR/MVFR cigs will return after 10z Sat morning.
