Los Angeles, California: The National Weather Service Los Angeles office is providing updates on ocean swells, high surf advisories, and impending storm systems. Southern California is now experiencing a mixed bag of weather. This will continue throughout the first two weeks of January.
According to the most recent data, ocean swells are progressively decreasing in the coastal seas of Southern California.
Strong rip currents and high surf advisories are still in effect. It is advised that locals and beachgoers use caution and keep themselves informed about the situation around the coast.
While SLO County may see some rain from the system, VTA County and LA County are predicted to stay dry, with any precipitation in the impacted areas probably not going beyond a tenth of an inch.
Short-term conditions call for dry, mainly cloudy skies on Monday morning, with offshore flow producing canyon winds of 15 to 25 mph. Clearing skies and a mix of elements, such as an approaching ridge and offshore flow, will cause most places to warm by two to five degrees in the afternoon.
It is predicted that a stronger and significantly colder storm will pass through the region on Wednesday and Thursday.
Rain will fall on Southern California during this period, according to the forecast, as a result of a chilly upper low passing over the government.
There is a slim chance that thunderstorms will form in the afternoon due to the cold core of the upper low causing adequate instability.
Although substantial precipitation is not predicted for this storm, it is predicted to be the coldest system of the season thus far, with snow levels dropping to roughly 5000 feet and the potential for several inches of accumulation above 5500 or 6000 feet.
Keep yourself updated about the weather and prevent going to the beach.
