STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — We are waking up to some clouds tis morning.
It is the product of a “dirty” ridge of high pressure. This happens when a ridge of high pressure sets up, however instead of clear blue skies from the sinking air…we get clouds overrunning the ridge.
At the surface we still have the same characteristics of a high pressure ridge…such as dry conditions and slightly warmer temperatures. The cloud cover will limit some of the heating today. We should be at or slightly above average.
The ridge is not all that intense and it only lasts for a day, because by Wednesday another front moves through the west coast. This wave of energy will affect the Central Coast and Northern California. We will stay dry in the Los Angeles area.
We may get some gusty winds through the I-5 corridor…but that’s about it. We will some cooling for the rest of the week. By Sunday it appears a trough is dropping into the drop basin…with high pressure building in behind it. This is a typical “inside slider” and could be a wind event for us…but we’ll see if it holds together.
