Good morning,

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and were able to enjoy a few days off.

This week will start off like a good Christmas present. Sunny and warm for the next 3 days. This is thanks to high pressure and off shore winds. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will be in the 70s. "It has been awhile since we have felt warm." However, lows will still be quite cold at night.

On Thursday things begin to change. Remember the low that passed off shore on Sunday. Well it is parked to the south spinning around (take a look)

This is just like last Wednesday’s system. A cut off low will be drifting northward. This will happen Thursday night into Friday. This is another one of those systems that we do not clearly understand.

We will call for some rain, although were not sure how much until it is almost here.

Then there is Saturday.  It does look like rain is in our New Years Eve day forecast. This one is likely. This system is coming from the north. We will watch the track and see how much rain will appear. It is still too early to know.

Rain is likely to arrive Saturday morning on the central coast, and then spread into LA just in time for New Year’s celebrations.

The start of 2017 looks to be dry for at least the first 2 days, but lots of wind.

Ok, now you are caught up with the weather.

As always stay tuned
