TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..I’m sorry to be so late had some techie stuff to do.
..So for today, clear skies for the mountains and the Valley, with increasing temperatures for all areas through the weekend. As High pressure over New Mexico expands West, we will have warmer days, and eventually see Monsoonal Moisture advected into the Region.
..Thursday temps will be up about 5* from today’s, and another 5* on Friday. Late Friday night or early Saturday morning, Moisture will move into the Desert South West in the upper levels. There will be some intrusion as well into the lower levels of the atmosphere Saturday and Sunday. The amount of lower level moisture is uncertain at this time and will be based on the expansion of the High over New Mexico and how much moisture becomes entrained in the lower level flow. Either way, we will see Cumulus clouds building over the local mountain peaks beginning late Friday through Monday. If sufficient moisture does move this far West in the lower levels of the atmosphere we could see a few Thunderstorms with mainly dry Lightning over the local Mountains mainly toward the Big Bear area. Out at the Colorado River, or the Lake Havasu area, Thunderstorms will be a good possibility over the weekend and Monday. Something to think about of you are traveling out that way.
..Saturday should be our hottest day locally as the High will begin to break down and weaken by Sunday/Monday. Temperatures will remain very warm after Monday but should be a little cooler through the work week next week. The Monsoonal Moisture will subside by Monday night making the warm temperatures a little more comfortable.
..Don’t forget about your outdoor pets as they will need extra water and shade in the coming days.
..That’s it for now!

..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.
