Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Jan. 30)

STUDIO CITY ( — We are waking up to NO advisories this morning. The end of this work should end on a dry, warm, and pleasant note.

The high pressure we have watched in the Pacific will now build into the west coast. As it noses over us, we will have an increased off-shore flow. However, aside from some gusty mountain winds we shouldn’t have to worry too much about advisory level conditions.

Temperatures will be running a good 5 to 7 degrees above average. The high will break down over the weekend for some cooler conditions.

The forecast models have been flip-flopping about the possibility of rain starting early Sunday. Last night the models had us dry on Sunday and rainy on Tuesday.

Because the rain is a product of a cut-off low, it makes the extended forecast a little difficult. The latest long range forecasts that I looked at this morning, have moisture now streaming into the area on Sunday…then really picking up Monday and Tuesday.

In fact this is the most aggressive rainfall that I’ve seen for the season. However I’m not inclined to put all of my eggs in the rain basket just yet. We will have to wait and see how future runs of the forecast model hold up with the rain.

Coast-mid 60s
Basin-upper 60s
Valleys-low 70s
Mountains-upper 40s
Deserts-low 60s
