IN THE COASTAL WATERS. BOTH GFS AND EUROPEAN MODELS ARE VERY CLOSE
IN THE SHORT TERM. BOTH MODELS SHOW A CUT OFF LOW FORMING IN
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ON FRIDAY AND THEN HAVE IT MOVING SOUTH OVER
THE WEEKEND. A SHORT WAVE MOVES INTO THE THE WESTERN GULF STATES
BY SUNDAY AS A SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE AREA FROM THE
NORTHWEST. THE CUT OFF LOW FINALLY OPENS UP BY EARLY NEXT WEEK AND
MOVES THROUGH CENTRAL GULF REGION.

A RISK OF PATCHY MARINE FOG FORMING OVER THE SHALLOW COOL COASTAL
