STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The trough that gave us rain yesterday and last night is now exiting the region.
As it moves off to the east we are experiencing some gusty winds. NWS in Oxnard has issued a wind advisory for LA and Ventura County mountains and Santa Clarita Valley until noon today.
The worst of the wind will last until just after sunrise.
The NWS in San Diego has issued a winter weather advisory and that’s because of the lower snow levels moving in. We are down to 3000′ in some cases this morning. While accumulation is light, the roads are icy. That advisory is for mountains in Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties.
Today’s highs will be well below average with cold air surging in behind the trough. However, we start a gradual warm up tomorrow and by the end of the week an off-shore flow develops again along with a nice ridge of high pressure and we will be back up into the low to mid-70s.
Next weekend’s forecast is still somewhat in the air as one of our forecast models (GFS) is calling for some decent rainfall starting Saturday running through Monday.
