Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Jan. 9)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — We’ve got one more nice day on tap here in Southern California.
Temperatures will still be at or slightly above average with sunshine to start the day. However we will see high clouds increase through the afternoon ahead of our next system dropping into the West Coast.
The big story with this storm system will be the cold air and fierce winds. While there is the threat of scattered showers…there won’t be much in the way of wet weather.
The best chances for rain will be early tomorrow.
Snow levels will start out at around 5000′ but through early Thursday we will see that level drop down…eventually by Friday morning we could see snow levels down below 3000′. There won’t be much moisture left at that point…but we could see snow at levels that don’t normally see any snow.
This winter blast will be some of the coldest air of the Season as the trough stalls in the west…continuing to pump arctic air into the area. In fact Saturday morning’s downtown low could bottom out in the 30s.
This system will also bring strong consistent winds through the weekend…advisories are likely. We won’t see warming until the middle of next week.
Coast-mid to upper 60s
Valleys-low to mid 70s
