....Good Morning.
..Thursday’s WX, Today we will have clear skies except for some high clouds later today. Temperatures will be a little warmer than yesterday.
The winds have all but died out this morning and will stay that way for now. High clouds will filter in from the West as an area of Low Pressure out over the Eastern Pacific heads North into NOR-CAL for tomorrow. Showers will move into the PAC-NW later today and Friday but here we will stay dry for now. A weak Ridge will build over SoCal through Saturday keeping us in a nice weather pattern until then. Temperatures will continue to warm slowly Friday and Saturday.
..Saturday will be a transitional day. We will start the day with mostly clear skies, then clouds will begin to form late in the day. By Sunday there will be 20% chance for scattered showers across the area. Monday will be partly cloudy with a continued chance for showers. Temperatures will be much cooler so there will actually be a chance for snow flurries Monday.
..All of this will clear out by Tuesday, leaving mostly clear skies for Tuesday through Friday. Temperatures next week after the storm blows out will be colder through the rest of the work week next week.
..After a cold week next week, the weekend looks like a pretty good chance for a cold storm to bring rain and snow to our area for next weekend. This is in Crystal Ball territory, so there will be lots of changes between now and then. That’s just how it looks now on the long range outlook. The 4-7day looks dry but the 8-12day looks wetter than normal for our area, and colder.

..Good Morning.
..This morning, a weak Trough is passing over SoCal. As a result, the Marine layer has moved inland and is up to around 5500′ thick, with fog and clouds along and below the Rim.
..This will slowly clear out today as the Trough moves out of the area. However morning fog and low clouds can be expected again overnight and in the morning tomorrow.
..Temperatures will be running in the upper 50s to mid 60s today across the mountains as well as on Sunday.
..Late Sunday as a much stronger system approaches the West, we will see gusty winds develop along the Rim and front country in advance of a pretty wet system that will bring a good wetting rain to the area through early Tuesday morning.
..This system will have support of an Atmospheric River (AR) that will be dying out as it passes over SoCal. However, it will be strong enough to bring up to 2 inches of rain in some local mountain upslope areas. The recent burn areas need to keep watch over the recently burned hills for the possibility of flash Flooding or mud flows.
..The snow levels due to the AR from the South will keep those levels at 7500′ and above for this storm.
..As this will be the first rain that will likely cause some run off, this is a good time to check those drainage areas to make sure they are clear of debris.
..Tuesday and for the rest of the week ahead, we will have clearing skies and warming temperatures as High pressure rebuilds into the SoCal region. RC
..That’s it for now, have a good day! RC
