..Good Morning.
..Just another beautiful morning here in the Mountains. Cool morning air, a light breeze, and clear skies.
..Yesterday there was another Brush Fire pretty much in the same place as the Manzanita Fire a week or so ago. This time the Fire burned around 3-5 acres. Air resources along with ground crews made quick work of the fire and is now out. A big Thank You to our Firefighters.
..Today will be the coolest day of the next five as a trough moves through the Region from the North. Low clouds and Fog are in the Valley again this morning, but will clear out quickly. There is no Fog along any of the Rim this morning.
..So for today, we will see daytime high temperatures running around the low to mid 70s. Gusty winds can be expected this afternoon, along with a few clouds as well.
..For the Work Week Weather: An area of High pressure that is currently building over the Northwestern parts of Mexico, will fill in behind the departing Trough starting Monday. This will bring a slow warming trend to the area for Tuesday through Friday, as the Ridge of High pressure migrates West.
..Temperatures will not, be hot as we have seen in the past weeks just around normal, to a few degrees above that. Thursday, an area of Low pressure will start to move North from Baja Ca. This will bring a slight chance for T/Storms to the area next Friday and Saturday as Tropical Moisture is drawn into the area from the South.
..Then as that system moves out Sunday, another Trough from the North will follow continuing to give us a chance for scattered showers through Tuesday of the next week.
..That system will likely bring a NE winds as it departs to the East for our area for Tuesday and Wednesday for the 11th and 12th.
..This is typical for this time of year. As areas of Low pressure begin to pass through the PAC-NW, we will see onshore flow, clouds at times, and also NE winds following those systems, as they move East through the Great Basin.
..So far this year, we have not seen any critical fire danger levels due to the lack of significant winds. Lets hope it stays this way. The rains we had a couple weeks ago have really helped, but the light fuels have dried out now and are very dry as of this morning. So please continue to be careful with any type of fire. RC*

..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
