So I have been away for awhile… Well, yeah… Here’s a forecast! 😀
Showers already begun in parts of SoCal with the brunt of the system looking to begin in early evening. Don’t expect a large amount of rainfall, mostly around a tenth of an inch or so with locally more in the foothills and mountains. There is a chance for some snow around 7000 feet and higher as well. Another similar system will approach later this week, otherwise temperatures will remain steady/normal for the period. For now, highs in 70’s/60’s, lows in the lower 50’s/upper 40s, light winds for the most part, and partly (becoming mostly) cloudy skies with scattered showers.
Happy October! The ‘cool’ period is officially over for now as a significant warming trend is expected due to a growing surface high pressure and offshore flow for Southern California. This will continue through early next week before eventually cooling off again. Interior locations can expect temperatures to go into the triple digits (hottest should be Saturday), while the coasts will remain relatively cool (though there is a fire weather watch for most of the region as well as an heat advisory). For now, highs in the 90’s/80’s, lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and mostly clear skies.
Hope everyone enjoyed the warmth the last few days in So Cal, because a cooling trend begins through early next week. Expect low clouds for the night into morning hours and maybe even a slight chance of drizzle Friday night into Saturday. Also, there is high surf expected for the Central Coast (North of Point Conception) for the west, northwest facing beaches that could have local sets up to 13 feet that will last through Friday morning. For now, highs in the 80’s/70’s (warmer today inland), lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and mostly clear/partly cloudy skies.
I know everyone loved the heat the last week in SoCal, but now it’s time for a cool down thanks to an upper low moving into our region today for significant cooling. The cooling should last through Sunday, before moving out of for high pressure early next week. Besides the cooling, there will be more clouds across the region, especially night into morning low clouds for the coast and near coastal areas which may even bring some chances of light rain (very low, but still better than nothing). For now, highs in the 80’s/upper 70’s, lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and mostly clear/partly cloudy skies.
For those that thought that summer was over (even though it’s not), high pressure will bring hot temperatures for Southern California today through early next week. Triple digits can be expected for the interior valleys and there may be some record-breaking temperatures for this time of year (notably Sunday being the hottest). Next week a cooling a trend should take place as the high pressure moves east. Highs in the 90’s/upper 80’s, lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and mostly clear skies.
A weak trough of low pressure will bring below normal temperatures and morning clouds for the night into morning hours for the coasts and near coastal valleys until tomorrow before high pressure take over once again in Southern California. Interior locations will still see temperatures mostly in the 90’s (possibly warmer) during the afternoon, while the coasts should still remain relatively cool. Another main weather story is that the monsoonal moisture will be impacting some part of SoCal with some isolated showers and thunderstorms for the San Bernadino Mountains and more southern mountain ranges and deserts. Otherwise, highs in the lower 90’s/80’s, lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and partly/mostly cloudy skies.
Hope everyone enjoyed the last few cool days in Southern California as an expected warm up begins tomorrow with a building ridge of high pressure dominates the weather until early next week. Today will still be on the ‘cooler’ side of things, but expect less clouds at the coasts for the coming days. Hurricane Marie will provide some high surf, mostly for the South facing beaches, but other than that will not have a significant effect. After today, temperatures may reach triple digits inland (especially for Thursday). For now, highs in the 80’s (cooler at coasts), lows in the 60’s, light winds for the most part, and mostly clear skies.
