Upcoming Rain

Good Monday morning,

It sure is nice to wake up on a Monday morning at home, instead of the past 2 Monday’s in the hospital. How sweet that is.

There is lots of Action out there, weather wise. It is just all to the north of the forecast area.

We will see high clouds steaming over us for the next 3 days. No rain until Thursday, just the high clouds and high surf.

We have a nice ridge right now, which is pushing the rain to the north of us. This will breakdown Wednesday, then open the door for rain Thursday into Friday.

I do feel we will see rain for sure with this next system, 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Also the good news is that we might even get into a wet pattern, with another system for the weekend.

Yes, if you look at El Nino history. Mid December is the time it begins. Water Temps are 5 plus degrees higher than normal. This really does draw a picture of the start of an interesting few months. Really, Jan and Feb will be the time of year that the Gulf of Alaska systems will drop much further to the South, creating rain to enhance over southern California.

We will see how this plays out as the month goes forward, for now we will see some much needed rain.

Get ready, I hope we will get into a wet pattern.

Enjoy dry weather for the next 3 days, and then we will see what the rain Gods bring us

Have a great week, see you all out there.
