Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (April 19)
STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Get ready for a taste of summer over the next few days as a ridge of high pressure builds into the region.
As that high moves in, we are seeing some gusty winds. A wind advisory is in effect for Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles counties, but it expires at 9 a.m.
The combination of a warm air mass and the off-shore flow will lead to temperatures well above average, in some cases 10 to 15 degrees.
Valley cities could hit in the mid-90s. Coastal cities are going to battle a shallow inversion, which will be spotty from north to south, so some beach cities will get stuck with clouds in the morning and, at times, that cloud cover will translate into dense fog, which reduces visibility.
However, there will be some coastal cities where that marine layer does not develop and in that case, it will warm up for you. The coastal forecast is very hit and miss. Otherwise, we all cool down just a bit next week.
Beaches -low 70s
Basin – upper 70s to low 80s
Valleys – mid to upper 80s
Deserts -upper 80s
Mountains – upper 60s
