TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION:
On today’s satellite pictures, ANDRES can be seen at the bottom of the pictures. Another disturbance is marked with a yellow X on the bottom pic.
ANDRES, the first Eastern Pacific Basin Hurricane of the season, has become a CAT-2 as of this morning. At this time, the only affect to SoCal will be increased surf along the south facing beaches. Yesterday we had a very warm day around the mountain with highs hovering around 80*. Today will be another warm day with temperatures just a little warmer than yesterday. The cause of this warm weather is a 576dm West Coast High that is over most of California. We will have one more day of 80* temperatures before the High moves East and is replaced by an approaching trough from a Low Pressure area to our North. As the trough moves over SoCal, a west to east zonal flow will settle in and last for several days, bringing cooler temperatures and the return of fog and low clouds to the inland valleys. As we change to a more zonal flow the storms that have brought heavy rain and flooding to Texas will subside and they will get a break from the severe storms in that area. However, another Hurricane is expected to develop off of the Baja area late in the first week of June and may bring more severe weather to that area. The Monsoon season starts May-15th in the Eastern Pacific Basin. It’s off to a busy start. This morning, surface pressure from Daggett to San Diego is at around 4.5mb onshore. This will give us another day of warm weather and stagnant air.
For today in CRESTLINE, TWIN PEAKS and LAKE ARROWHEAD, highs will be from 79-84* with overnight lows from 51-55*. For the RUNNING SPRINGS and BIG BEAR areas, highs today will run from 75-79* with overnight lows from 45-52*. Winds will be light today but should start to pick up tomorrow as the trough moves into the area. RC
