TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Forecast Trends: Warmer Weather through Thursday with temperatures tp peak Wednesday, then cooler Thursday and Friday.
..This morning there is a shallow Marine layer trying to make into the IE. Whatever makes it in tho the IE will clear out by early this morning.
..Today, High pressure now to over Northern Mexico and Texas, will expand West through the first part of the work week, bringing in warmer temperatures through Wednesday.
..Tuesday the area of High pressure will be located over Northern Baja, by Wednesday, the center of the High will be just West of SoCal over the Pacific.
..Thursday will be a transitional day as a Trough will pass through the PAC-NW. Temperatures locally will be cooler Thursday and Friday. Gusty winds may develop locally as the Trough passes through the area. The Marine layer will likely deepen as well moving back into the Valley during the morning hours.
..This is where things get tricky. For Friday, we may see a short offshore flow develop as the West Coast Trough moves East. However, a Tropical Storm will be in the region to our South, off of Baja by then, so we may see an influx of Moisture from the South get drawn up in the flow. A weak cut off Low will be offshore leftover from the passing Trough, and High pressure will be building to our East. So the circulations around each of these systems will make for an interesting set of parameters for the long range outlook. At this time, it looks like we will be in for a pattern change as the Tropical system moves into the area bringing moisture up from the South. This should last through the first week of September. Currently, the forecast charts show this Tropical system moving up the Baja peninsula and bobbeling around just offshore for several days, bringing moisture in from the South then eventually moving onshore in SoCal. This will give us a chance for some moisture next week.
..To our North, the Jet Stream will become active in that, a couple of fairly deep Lows will pass through to our North during that same time. Typically when the Low pressure systems pass to our North we get an offshore flow, but due to the other factors, things may get interesting??? As it looks this morning, we may see the Monsoonal Moisture return as soon as Saturday locally and increase through the following week as a couple of Tropical systems move North along Baja California.
..So as you can see, things look like they will get complicated in the coming days. More on that as things get ironed out. *RC
..As we head into the latter part of Summer and the Fall Season, the local Forest vegetation is drying out. Fuel moistures are below average now, and the Fire Danger levels are on the rise. Be sure to check Fire Regulations before camping to make sure of current Fire Regulations. Also I will be posting the Fire Danger levels on the WX Alerts page for a more in depth look at the local fire weather..(Website).

..On the main page of the website, www.lakegregoryweather.com I have added two live webcam views, one of Lake Gregory pointing North, and the other facing Southeast toward Waterman canyon. These are very helpful for the drive up and down the hill. If the camera view is gray, that means it’s foggy.
