Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (May 1)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The marine layer has once again made it into the valleys this morning, however we should get some better clearing today as we transition to more of an off-shore flow.
The gusty winds we had yesterday will continue today. Initially, these winds will ride over the marine layer, but as we progress through the day it should be able to scour a lot of the cloud cover away.
How the marine layer clears out will be the difference between a warm day today and a mild day. The off-shore flow really kicks in on Thursday and Friday. Again it will be a battle between the inversion (low cloud layer) and the off-shore flow (Santa Ana Winds).
Today the inversion wins a little of the battle and keeps some of those temperatures in check.
However by tomorrow, I’m pretty certain valleys will reach well into the 90s. Downtown temperatures will be a little trickier. If that cloud cover burns off, we will also see some 90s tomorrow. If it hangs on, the temperatures won’t be quite as hot.
Regardless, fire danger will be high starting today. There is a Red Flag Warning for our mountains and the Santa Clarita Valley. The San Fernando Valley is also part of that advisory. All in all it’s a bit of a complicated weather set up for the next few days.
Basin – mid to upper 70s
Beaches – upper 60s
Valleys – upper 80s
Mountains – near 60
Deserts – low 80s
