TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..Today we will have high clouds from a system that is working it’s way through the west. The Marine layer is running around 1500-2000′ thick this morning. However, its mostly a thick haze in the IE this morning. All of this will slowly clear out by tonight as High pressure moves over SoCal from the Pacific.
..The weekend will be warmer for the region as we will be under a lobe of High pressure.
..As the High move over the area, a Cut Off Low will develop off Baja California from the passing Trough today. This Low will bobble around through the weekend to our South before getting caught up in the jet Stream again early next week.
..NE winds winds will arrive Saturday and Sunday but these winds will not be a strong event locally. Winds are expected to be mostly in the Canyons and along the Ridges from 10-35mph. Local temperatures will be warmer by a few degrees for the weekend before plummeting early next week.
..Early next week a cold core Low will move Inland along the West coast. This will bring much cooler temperatures to the mountain areas next week. By mid week, we will have a chance for rain, and snow at the higher elevations locally.
..The warmer Cut Off Low to our South, and the much coder Trough to our North will meet around Tuesday if all goes well. This is when we will have a chance for rain locally. More on this later.. *RC
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..This morning we have a weak pressure gradient between Daggett and San Diego of around 2mbs onshore. Between Tonopah and Daggett its running around 3mbs offshore. So the surface winds should be light and variable today. A weak Trough is moving through to our north this morning bringing lots of fog and clouds to the area. For SoCal, we should only see High clouds today and tomorrow from this system. Temperatures will be a little cooler along with a deeper Marine layer for tonight and tomorrow morning. Fog will be possible in the morning tomorrow, up against the lower elevations of the mountain.
..This will all clear out by the afternoon as a Pacific High moves back over SoCal for the weekend. North East winds will return behind the departing trough.
..Temperatures will be on the rise again by a few degrees locally as well as lower humidity levels. Gusty NE winds Saturday and Sunday will run from 10-35mph tapering off by Sunday afternoon.
..Now things get interesting.
..The area of low pressure that will move through today and Friday will form a lobe and break off from the Jet Stream forming a Cut Off Low to our South off Baja over the weekend. This should add to our NE winds for the weekend as it bobbles around off Baja, and High pressure moves in from the Eastern Pacific. We will be in the middle of the two circulations.
..By Monday the area of High pressure will move East as another Trough slides South along the West Coast. The cut Off Low will become en-trained in the circulation joining up with the Trough from the North. If all goes right, we will be in the opportunity spot for a good chance to see some rain showers locally on Wednesday, and or Thursday morning! The area of Low pressure that will slide through here Wednesday is a cold core Low so there will be a slight chance for snow at the higher elevations as well, above 6500-7000′. *RC
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..Well today I am using a new computer, so here we go?
The area of high pressure that is over the South West will move out later today. A weak Trough will move over the area bringing in gusty SW winds and higher humidity to all of the region. Upper level clouds will accompany the trough as it passes through along with a deepening Marine layer. Fog and low clouds will filter into the Inland valleys by Friday morning a welcome sight, as the moisture increases. Local temperatures will decrease by 5-10* across the area during the daytime along with the gusty winds at times. Local daytime temperatures will remain close to what they have been, the upper 30’s too low 40s below the 5500′ level, and in the mid to upper 20s to low 30s above that through Friday.
..Saturday and Sunday, we will have offshore flow return, as the Trough moves East and is replaced by a Pacific High. A Cut Off Low will form to our South again breaking off of the Trough, and setting up to our South for a couple days. This in conjunction with the departing Trough and the approaching High will all add up to an offshore flow through Sunday night or Monday morning before it moves out as well. Depending on the timing of all of this, we could see some fairly strong NE winds for around 24-36 hours. Local temperatures will increase, and humidity levels will decrease through the period.
..By Monday afternoon, things will settle down as we prepare for a possible pattern change. As it looks this morning, a couple of Troughs of Low pressure will begin to affect our weather by Tuesday. As these systems move Inland over the West, rain will arrive as well. The question is, how far South will the rain make it. So I’m going with increasing clouds with gusty winds likely for Tuesday night and Wednesday along with Ridge fog, and a chance for a shower. Then a brief period of clearing weather before the next potential system arrives for Friday night and Saturday?? This is getting out pretty far but that’s how it looks at this time. These systems will be cold as well so there will be a chance for light snow at the higher elevations above 7000 feet. *RC
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..Once again we have clear skies and cool morning temperatures across the mountain. High pressure over the West will keep daytime temperatures above average for at least a few more days. However, there is a hint of change in the longer range outlook.
..High clouds will move over the region later today from the North West. These clouds will be from 25-35k’ so we may have a photo op tonight at sunset.
..Wednesday a weak Trough will move across the area bringing in a cooling trend through Friday. Temperatures will be only a few degrees cooler overall. Onshore flow will strengthen along with a deepening Marine layer. Humidity levels will be up so that will help to quell the Fire Danger levels through Friday.
..For the weekend, offshore flow will return with a quick warm up as High pressure moves back over the area. As the Trough moves out to the East, A Cut Off Low will set up off Baja California for the weekend. This should aid in the NE winds for the weekend, but nothing to strong is expected.
..Then, looking at the Crystal Ball Outlook this morning, a change looks likely beginning Monday. As it looks this morning, Temperatures will begin their downward trek as a couple of areas of Low pressure move Inland along the West Coast. Monday and Tuesday, the first of two systems will move onshore. This will bring in much cooler temperatures along with some clouds and possibly Ridge Fog. Then the second system for Wednesday and Thursday if things stay on track, could bring light rain and possible snow to the higher elevations with much colder temperatures across the whole area. So as it looks this morning, a pattern change is looking more likely beginning early next week through Thanksgiving weekend. *RC
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning. Thank you to all of the Veterans, past and present.
..Today will be another nice day across the mountains. Temperatures will warm slightly today and Tuesday, as an area of Low pressure over Baja California moves out, and a Ridge of High pressure moves in over SoCal from the Pacific. Northeast winds will be present today over the Ridges, and in the local Canyons as we transition to High pressure over the region. Currently Heaps Peak has gusts to 20mph from the NorthEast, and Paivika Ridge in Crestline is running 2-8mph from the NE.
..The sky will be mostly clear but there is some upper level moisture passing over that may produce a few high clouds later in the day today. As far as the Winds go they will be mostly confined to the areas below the Rim and as mentioned and along the Ridges. Waterman Canyon is running at 10-20mph as of 7:30am.
..Wednesday will be another transitional day as the Ridge moves out and a long wave Trough moves towards the West Coast. This will bring a return of onshore flow along with low clouds and fog to the Coastal communities Thursday and Friday, or maybe into Saturday morning. We will remain clear here at the upper elevations. Temperatures will begin to cool a few degrees by Thursday morning as well as Friday. High clouds will pass over the area along with gusty SW winds for both days.
..Sunday another area of High pressure will arrive with warming temperatures along with more high clouds.
..So as you can see, the pattern continues to be weak Troughing followed by weak Ridging for the next five to ten days. Temperatures will not vary much but no strong Santa Ana winds are expected. *RC
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather.
So that’s about it for today. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..Today will be another nice day across our mountain communities.
Temperatures will continue to be above average through mid week next week. Clear skies and offshore winds from 5-15mph will be the forecast through Tuesday.
..This morning an area of low pressure is off of Baja along with an area of High pressure across most of the Pacific Ocean to our North and West.
..We will only see subtle differences in our weather for the next several days. The Low to our Southwest will move East Monday giving a slight boost to our offshore flow locally. Gusty NE winds can be expected in the Canyons and along the Ridges for Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday as the Low moves East, A Ridge of High pressure will move over SoCal through Wednesday. This will keep temperatures above average through the period.
..Then for Thursday, cooler temperatures will arrive as onshore flow returns. A Trough of Low pressure will move onshore across the West which will bring stronger onshore flow, cooler temperatures, along with a chance for the Inland areas to see some morning fog. This Trough will bring in higher humidity levels across the SoCal Region helping to mitigate the High fire Danger levels we have had for the last few weeks.
..On the long range outlook, the next seven days look dry as far as any rain goes. On the longer range outlook, there is a chance for something around the 25th as it looks this morning. *RC
..Have a good rest of the weekend, and enjoy the nice mountain weather.
So that’s about it for today. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com
