Another picture perfect day as we continue to ride on the coat tails of our latest Santa Ana wind event. The winds are weakening across Southern California which is great news for fire fighting efforts. Red Flag Warning should drop off for all region by late Saturday. Temperatures were once again very warm with little help from the Pacific Ocean as the onshore flow never really kicked in to gear. That should change on Sunday and that means a cool down is on the way! Look for highs on Sunday to only top out in the 60’s & 70’s with a few possible low 80’s. Fog is not expected, but there could be some light or patchy clouds right on the immediate coastline.
Looking ahead, further cooling in to next week is expected as the marine layer deepens and more fog drifts inland. Highs will stay cool to mild through about mid week and then warm up a little toward next weekend. A Pacific storm will slam in to Oregon & Washington and this could produce a moderate northerly flow across the region. This means some breezy and even gusty north to northwest winds for Wednesday and Thursday. We will need to watch closely and see if Wind Advisories will be necessary and or heightened fire concerns as well.
