TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..Another beautiful day ahead for the mountains. There is a layer of fog in the Valley into the bottom of Waterman canyon that will dissipate later this morning.
..Generally, we will be in a South West flow for the next week as High pressure moves into the area from the East. Later in the work week we should see an increase in humidity as weak Monsoonal flow moves up into the Colorado River area. By Friday PWAT levels will rise to around 1.25″ locally and to 1.70″ out at the River. So as you can see from the PWAT levels, precipital moisture content in the Atmosphere, the humidity levels will be going up. This also brings the possibility of Thunderstorms to the Colorado River (Havasu) for the weekend, and Big Bear for Sunday and Monday. Cumulus clouds will start to show up probably Wednesday or Thursday locally, but no rain is expected for our area.
..As the area of High pressure moves in and the heights rise, so will the temperatures. We could see daytime highs in the mid to upper 80s to 90* by Friday and Saturday. This will likely be a fairly prolonged heat wave for most of SoCal including the mountains.
..Tuesday temperatures will cool off by a few degrees but overall Summer has arrived. The Troughing that has kept us cool so far this Summer has gone, and it’s time for the Monsoonal flow to take over.
..Don’t forget about your outdoor pets as they will need extra water and shade in the coming days.
..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.
