TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
I found this picture on the internet so I thought I would share it this morning.
Today our weather will continue to be influenced by a trailing trough from a low pressure system to our north. Low pressure to our north will be remain the main weather feature through the coming days. Temperatures will remain a few degrees cooler than normal for this time of year through the days ahead. High pressure that was thought to move over the area early next week and possibly push Monsoonal Moisture into SoCal, will stay to our southeast as it looks at this time. Onshore flow will remain in place through the weekend with a varying amount of fog pushing into the local valleys of the IE. This morning no fog has developed in the IE however, by sunrise, this may change. Either way, skies will be clear by mid morning. A new Tropical storm (Kevin) forming to our south has a new trajectory this morning and is expected to veer to the West Northwest instead of heading into Northern Baja as was originally thought. It looks like the Weather pattern is beginning to transition to a fall pattern. As areas of low pressure pass to our North, cooler temps will be more typical for our local area. This also means the possibility of Santa Ana winds may develop behind some of the troughs as they pass to our north. This weekend will be a good time to touch up on fire clearance cleanup around the house and check out the roof for pine needles and any repairs that may be needed before winter rains arrive. El Nino has made a new mark, the SST for Nino region 3.4 has warmed to 2.2*c above normal, a new high for this El Nino. This years El Nino is headed toward new and uncharted ground for strength. This is likely to be the strongest on record by the time we are into November. RC
High Temperatures today for the CRESTLINE, LAKE ARROWHEAD, and TWIN PEAKS areas will run from 75-79* today, and overnight Lows will run from 49-54*. Highs today for the BIG BEAR and RUNNING SPRINGS areas will run from 69-74*, and overnight lows will run from 40-50*, San Bernardino will see temps around 85 today and overnight lows around 56*.
