9/5/2019 Forecast

Good morning, 

I thought I would sneak in a forecast this morning. 

We have had a fairly warm humid week, and that trend will continue through Friday. 

If you take a look at the satellite picture, you will see the subtropical monsoonal moisture rising up from the south.

This can create some rain drops or showers over the mountains. These have remained south of us, but are drifting further to the north today.

Friday, the moisture tap should shut down as low pressure moves in from the north.

This will create some sundowner winds on Saturday evening. Winds will not be extreme, but could be in the 30s in the hills and teens locally.

Always, this time of year we watch these because of the possible fire danger. Sundowner winds will heat up the air and we will likely see the highs for the day around 6pm Saturday.

I even heard that EDISON is looking to possibly shut off power in the hills where this could occur. “I am glad I have solar with a battery system .... “

There also has been a run on the sale of generators with this news.

With low pressure arriving, this will get rid of the humidity and leave us with hot weather through the weekend.

Early next week, we should start with a cool down.

Enjoy the summer weather.
