TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..There’s not a lot of change in our weather for the next few days. High Pressure will remain in place across the West with above normal temperatures through the end of the work week. As far as the winds go, we will continue to have a weak NE flow across the region through Thursday as we will be under a Ridge of High pressure until then.
..Humidity levels are running much lower then yesterday at this time across the area. The winds are also much lower than yesterday morning as well. The very HIGH FIRE DANGER levels will remain in place through the weekend due to high temperatures and low humidity, with minimal overnight recovery of humidity levels expected.
..Saturday the Ridge will begin to weaken and 500mb heights will begin to weaken allowing a slow cooling trend to begin across SoCal for the weekend. Onshore flow will return as well helping to bring more cooling along the Coastal areas and slowly moving Inland.
..Monday the onshore flow will strengthen with gusty winds from the SW arriving locally. This should help to lessen the fire danger some as moisture flows Inland from the Pacific. Fog and low clouds will return to the Coastal sections early next week and slowly progressing Inland during the work week next week.
..At this time, there is no rain in our future for the next ten days or so. We may pick up some mid level clouds at times as remnants from a couple of Tropical disturbances pass by offshore. But as it looks now, these will not bring any moisture to our area.
