TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..Last night’s Fireworks show at Lake Gregory was a very good display! Hope you that went enjoyed it.
..This morning, there is low level Fog in the Valley that will clear out to the Coast by noonish. High clouds that have sheared off of once Hurricane Barbara are flowing over SoCal at around the 20,000-30,000 foot level. These will be around for most of the day, so Sunset pictures may be exceptional tonight.
..A Trough of Low pressure will deepen across the West today and Monday along with a Catalina Eddy that together will help to deepen the Marine layer, and help to push Fog and low clouds into the Coastal, and Inland Valleys, tonight and tomorrow morning. Temperatures will be several degrees cooler today and Monday as the Trough moves through the area. Gusty winds may develop as well in the passes and along the mountain Ridges tonight and Monday. For tomorrow morning the Marine layer may thicken to around the 4000′ level in the morning so plan accordingly if you are heading off the hill.
..Tuesday temperatures will begin an upward trend through the next 5-10 days as High pressure moves up from Texas and parks in New Mexico and Colorado later in the week. This will increase the temperatures locally as well as all of SoCal. As the High moves into that region, a Southerly flow aloft will eventually draw in Moisture from the South, or Monsoonal Moisture. As that occurs, we may see Thunderstorms develop out at the Colorado River area for next Friday through Tuesday the 16th. Locally the moisture is not expected to much of a factor until late in the weekend and then mostly for the lower Deserts and maybe the Big Bear area.
..So overall, enjoy the cooler weather as it looks like we will be warming up to more normal temperatures in the days ahead.
..As for the Tropical update, Cosme is coming along but doesn’t look like it will make Hurricane status as of this morning. Cosme is a Tropical storm and will likely remain that way through the next couple days then dissipate in the Pacific.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as 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
