TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..Today the winds will finally die out. There will still be some gusty winds in the passes and in the Canyons along the front country as well as along some of the local Ridges, this is why we will still be under a RED FLAG WARNING through tomorrow. Temperatures will slowly start up by a warm up a few degrees, but nothing substantial. Humidity levels will still be low across most of the area.
..The area of high pressure in the Great Basin that has been the driving force behind the winds, will weaken today and begin to move East throughout the weekend.
..Monday a kink in the Jet stream will spawn a Cut Off Low that will move North to South, through SoCal, Monday and Tuesday. This Cut Off Low will pause off of Northern Baja late Monday.
.. At this time, there is very little moisture associated with this Low so I don’t expect to see any rain from this area of Low pressure. However, we will see an increase in mid and upper level clouds beginning Monday as the low moves through the region. The down side of this is, as the low sets up off Baja, we will be on the back side of the circulation where the North East winds reside.
..So for Monday and Tuesday, another period of Santa Ana winds can be expected.
..Now for the good news. After the Cut Off Low moves East starting Wednesday, we will finally return to an onshore flow helping to moisten the atmosphere and maybe even see some morning Fog in the lowlands by the end of the work week, next week.
..This is good news to all the firefighters out here that are worn out from a long fire season. I still don’t see any chance for rain locally, but I’m hoping for a pattern change soon.
