Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (July 17)
STUDIO CITY (CBS) — There is a healthy marine layer covering the Southland this morning. The deeper marine layer is translating into some localized drizzle…clearing will be a little later this morning as well.
Some beach cities will be stuck with the clouds all day. We can expect a few degrees of cooling from this strong on-shore flow as well.
I’m expecting some gusty winds for the high desert. Of course the interesting component to our weather is Hurricane Fabio, which now is just a tropical storm. It’s moving north at 9 mph and wind speeds are sustained at 50 mph. This system will continue to fall apart, but the moisture remnants of the storm will stream through the area late Wednesday night into Thursday. A couple of the forecast models are pulling some rain out of this system…so there is a chance for a scattered shower or maybe even some thunderstorms associated with this moisture as it moves overhead.
By late Thursday the storm passes and the high pressure to the east will start shifting back towards California. So we can expect a gradual warming trend and right now the monsoonal flow appears to be returning by the end of the weekend. Sticky and warm with a chance for a storm to start off the next work week.
