TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Today will be another very nice day across the mountain. There will be a few changes beginning late this afternoon. A fairly strong area of Low pressure off the Pac-NW will hold an area of High pressure that is over NW Mexico in check, for now. The High to our Southeast will be expanding toward SoCal as the Low to our North does the same. We will be in the middle of these two systems fo the next few days which will keep us from having a heat wave locally. However, Tropical storm Alvin off the southern tip of Baja, will also play a part in the weather locally for the next 48hours.
..Today we will start the day with clear skies and hazy conditions in the Valley. Then as Alvin’s moisture gets sheared toward SoCal in the Westerlies, we will begin to see High level clouds at the 20-30,000’level move into SoCal by late this afternoon.
..Saturday clouds will thicken in the upper levels from around 12,000 foot level up producing a solid cloud cover. There will be a slight chance for a light shower or sprinkle Saturday and Saturday night. We shouldn’t see much of a change on Temperatures even with the cloud cover as this is a Tropical air mass. I have ran several models this morning checking CAPE, LI, and the K-index levels, and so far it looks like there will NOT be a chance for Thunderstorms with this air mass. There will be a period of low level shear early Sunday morning but not enough to produce any T-Storms as it looks at this time.
..On the longer range outlook, it looks pretty stable out there for the next five days or so with temperatures remaining about the same with only a few degrees of variance. That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or updates as may be needed.

..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.
..Be sure to check out the other pages on the website for the Latest on El Nino, live webcams from around the area, live Radar, Satellite loops, Traffic conditions, along with live Weather conditions, and a live view of Lake Gregory from my weather station at the South side of the lake. Have a good Day! *RC
