STUDIO CITY (CBS) — The marine layer depth is just under 2000′ Thursday morning, so once again there have low clouds in the basin and valleys.
The ridge that was in place for the last 48 hours is starting to drift to the east. This will bring some relief to desert cities that have been toasty over the past few days. A broad upper level trough is moving into the west coast, with a low pressure center hovering off the Oregon and Washington coast. This low looks like it’s going to stay parked in place for the next three to four days. It will translate into more of the same for Southern California. Low clouds in the morning giving way to hazy sunshine in the afternoon.
The marine layer may be thick enough at times over the next few days to give us patchy drizzle, especially in foothill communities. Look for gusty conditions in the Antelope Valley as well. By Monday or Tuesday, the low will finally move on and the high pressure that is dominating the middle of the nation will nudge back to the west. That will warm us up a few degrees.
Beaches -upper 60s to low 70s
Basin – mid 70s
