Upper Ridge pattern is developing closer to the west coast with much warmer temperatures in the days ahead. It looks like there may be a few isolated thunderstorms in the late afternoon but odds are pretty low for anything significant. The main idea is to nudge the off shore ridge in this weekend for highs to reach the first of the low 80s this year in Mammoth. A few isolated TSRWs are possible but nothing to be concerned about. Again high s in the low 80s Saturday with lows in the 40s….. Enjoy the last 10 days of Spring…..
A zonal flow pattern sets up the early to mid-week period to the north of us. High temps may pull back a bit, but remain at least in the mid 70s. The Dweebs expect the Mono Zephyr to kick up Monday or Tuesday, with gusty west winds in the afternoon and early evening hours. Week 2 looks toasty for the Summer Solstice…..
The CPC indicates a 90% chance that El Nino will continue through the Fall and an 85% chance through the winter of 2016….
El Nino Winters are typically wetter than normal for Southern CA and statistically drier as you go north……
Next Update Tuesday…..
