Tuesday evening forecast – Feb. 4th

It will be very cold tonight with many areas experiencing freezing temperatures in wind sheltered areas. Sunny, cool, and breezy conditions are expected on Wednesday. Skies will then be clear through Saturday with temperatures warming to slightly above normal for Friday and Saturday. Sunday through Monday night will be cloudier and cooler with a chance of rain or mountain snow. Dry and milder conditions can be expected for next Tuesday.

Sub-freezing temperatures will be likely for Tuesday morning. With a Hard Freeze Warning issued for the valleys and a Freeze Warning issued for the coasts. Temps will likely be in the low 20s for interior valleys and low 30s along the coast. Mainly sunny skies can be expected with conditions slightly below average. Daytime highs along the coast and valleys in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Cold temperatures continue to be the main weather story.  Winds are starting to weaken as upper support and cold advection exit to the east. However, advisory level winds are likely to continue at least in the Ventura County Mountains tonight into Wednesday morning. 

It's going to be another very cold night tonight and frost, freeze, and hard freeze headlines cover many parts of the forecast area. Some places that had wind modification last night will be colder tonight (Ventura County) due to less wind while other areas will either be the same or slightly warmer. Temperatures aloft are warming 4-8 degrees tonight so some of the mountain areas, particularly non- valley locations, will be warmer.

Less wind Wednesday and warmer daytime highs with temps finally getting back to near normal.

Low impact weather Thursday and Friday with highs near to slightly above normal. One thing to watch for is the strong possibility of the marine layer returning to coastal areas south of Point Conception by Thursday night. Models show a weak eddy spinning up and a strengthening inversion due to warming aloft with the upper ridge building in from the west.

Saturday should start out with morning marine layer clouds but otherwise a nice day with temps similar to Friday.  Sunday there is a chance for showers in the forecast.
