Tuesday evening forecast – Dec. 10th

A weak ridge of high pressure will give way to partly cloudy skies through the week with temperatures near normal through Wednesday, then above normal Thursday and Friday. Breezy northerly winds will develop Wednesday and last into the weekend. A moderate Santa Ana wind event is possible on Monday.

Highs on Tuesday were below average in most cities primarily in the low to mid 60s. Tuesday night we are expecting another cool night with partly cloudy skies.  Temperatures will dip into the upper 30s inland and in the 40s along the coast.

Wednesday expect a mild day with partly cloudy skies.  Temperatures will be similar to today in the 60s.

Thursday we will see warmer conditions and increasing northerly winds.  As the ridge builds and the offshore winds intensify we will have a warming trend through Friday.  Expect highs just above normal in the upper 60s to low 70s. 

Friday will be the warmest day of the week as we shift back into a much cooler pattern again next week.

The ridge will break down Saturday as the next trough drops in from the northwest. This one is not taking a favorable path for precipitation in our area but there could be some showers late Saturday near our shared border with kern county. Otherwise expect several degrees of cooling Saturday as onshore flow returns to lower elevations. Still gusty northerly winds expected in the mountains but likely below advisory levels on Saturday. Sunday we will see further cooling bringing us well below average.

A brief upper ridge will move overhead Monday for slightly warmer temps and highs near seasonal norms. Northerly winds should decrease after the morning.  Best chance of rain coming into the forecast middle of next week, but it is still too far out to get a good perspective on how much we will get, if any.
