TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..A beautiful morning to start the day!
..High clouds will start the day today as weak High pressure over SoCal slowly moves East. We should see temperatures slightly warmer today with lots of High clouds streaming in from the South West. Winds will be light and variable as we transition to another wet couple of days ahead.
..By tonight, as warm Moisture streams in from the Southwest, clouds will increase from the higher levels to around 5-6000′. Ridge fog will be possible after dark tonight in some areas.
..By midnight, we will have a chance for rain and or showers, as the bottom of a Trough that is centered to our North, moves Inland across NorCal. Sub Tropical moisture will be advected into the SoCal region from this system to our North, so snow levels will remain quite high for Saturday. Sunday the snow levels will lower but there won’t be much moisture to support any measurable snowfall locally. The higher elevations (above 7000′) may see 1-3″ at best as it looks this morning.
..Sunday the rain will end and we will begin to clear out by the afternoon hours. Temperatures will cool as the Trough moves out and cooler air from the Great Basin rushes in on Monday. Then Tuesday, a Ridge of High pressure will build in behind the departing Trough, and temperatures will begin to rise.
..Next week, as the Ridge of High pressure settles in over SoCal, we will have a five to seven day period of nice weather and warmer days. The Jet stream will move North and the storm track will go with it. By mid week we will be above normal for the daytime temperatures across all of SoCal.
..This next rain event will bring the highest rainfall totals to the South and West facing slopes due to orographic lift. Totals are estimated to be from 1.00-1.50″ for that area. For the rest of the mountain region, rainfall totals are expected to be from .50-1.25″.
..Due to the colder overnight temperatures, BLACK ICE may be on some of our local roads in the normal run off areas. Most, if not all of the local roads have snow berms and run off is likely most anywhere. So be careful driving, or walking for that matter!!! RC*
