STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — A prolonged period of dry weather will continue through the rest of this work week and into next week.
We can also expect a gradual warming trend to the end of the week. Expect some gusty winds this morning through the middle of the day.
A decent off-shore flow is setting up. There will be a weak disturbance diving into the Great Basin on Wednesday as it exits it will only strengthen then Santa Ana effect, however it won’t be terribly windy…just a dry bump in temperatures.
By Friday a big ridge of high pressure moves into the area…and we will see a spike in temperatures popping into the 80s and for some inland spots into the middle 80s. It will be relatively short lived warm up as the ridge breaks down by Sunday and we will get temperatures back down to the low to mid 70s for Sunday.
For next week we remain in a zonal pattern with very little fluctuations in our temperatures. Right now we are more than 6″ below average for our rainfall…this dry spell will only make that number worse.
