TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
For the next few days, we will see increased FIRE DANGER LEVELS for our area. Please be careful with any type of fire.
Trends, Monday through Wednesday, temperatures will be on the rise. Thursday through the Weekend, temperatures will begin cooling.
..Today an area of High pressure now centered over Louisiana, will begin to expand West. This will bring in warmer air to SoCal for the next few days. By Thursday, this area of High pressure will have moved offshore of California. The area of High pressure will set up with an East to West axis along the U.S. Border, and South from there. Kinda strange?? So there will not be any Monsoonal Moisture for our area.
.. Meanwhile, another Trough of Low pressure will move into the PAC-NW late in the week. This will bring in cooler air to the West Coast and all of SoCal beginning Thursday afternoon. As the Trough deepens, we will be in a cooling trend through the weekend before the Trough moves East Sunday.
..Gusty winds will develop in the afternoon hours each day as diurnal heating and cooling takes place. There is not much upper level moisture around the area so we should have nice clear skies through the period.
..A Tropical Storm is developing off of Baja California currently, but doesn’t look like it will have any effect on our weather here as the NHC has it going out to Sea over the next few days. *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.
..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
