STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The marine layer has become more prominent this morning and will strengthen through Wednesday.
A coastal eddy is spinning helping to give us the gray start. Temperatures also continue the cooling trend that began yesterday.
While our temperatures were above average yesterday, we will see 3 or 4 more degrees of cooling today. Temperatures stay below average through the rest of the week as a storm system approaches the area.
This next system looks to be very dynamic, but contains little moisture. However the track of the low will determine how much rain we get. The latest models have the system swinging out over the water. If this should happen, we could get a decent frontal band of rain moving through the area. If it moves ever so slightly inland, we will see a very dry system with scattered showers.
The one characteristic of this system that looks consistent is the cold core. We will see snow level drop down to 3000′ by Friday which would mean the Grapevine and the Cajon pass could have some problems. This system will have to be watched very carefully.
Warmer weather returns next week.
Basin-low to mid 60s
Deserts- upper 60s
