Detailed Forecast for Point Conception to Santa Rosa Island (focused on the hours of 6AM to 6PM)
Short Range Forecast Outlook 8/10-8/12:
High pressure will remain centered well to the northwest of Point Conception Friday and through the weekend, with thermal low pressure over the desert southwest. This will maintain a moderate pressure gradient over the outer coastal waters of Southern California during that time and WNW/NW flow will prevail. Wind will be lightest in the mornings and then increase over the afternoon hours. Area of patchy fog are possible in the morning hours, with generally clear skies in the afternoons.
Long Range Forecast Outlook For Southern California Outer Waters Santa Rosa Island to Santa Catalina Island, 8/13-8/19:
Long range model guidance indicates that the pressure gradient will weaken in the outer waters early next week, for 8/13 and 8/14, and will remain weak into the following weekend. Under this scenario we will see lighter WNW flow early next week potentially shift to light WSW flow through the middle and end of the week.
