Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Feb. 6)
STUDIO CITY (CBS) — It will be a decent start to the work week with just a couple of degrees of cooling Monday.
The Southland will see increasing high clouds out ahead of our next storm system. That low pressure center is up to the north currently, however by Tuesday it will be in our neck of the woods.
The forecast models indicate this system will rumble right down the coast. That means the difference of a few hundreds miles on the track of the system will mean higher or lower rainfall totals making estimates difficult. The system will bring anywhere from .25″ to .75″ of rain.
There is a southerly component to the system so mountains and foothills could see some higher totals. As this system is coming down the coast look for the heaviest rain and the best dynamics to occur right at the shore. Snow levels will start out at 7000′ and drop down to 5000′ once the cold air arrives. Winds will also be an issue as they kick in late Monday night and run through Wednesday.
Beaches – upper 60s to low 70s
Basin – upper 60s low 70s
Valleys – upper 60s low 70s
Deserts – mid 60s
Mountains – mid 40s
