Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Aug. 26)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — An interesting weather pattern is setting up.
We have a surge of moisture from the remnants of tropical storm Ivo moving into our area. Yesterday it was the far eastern deserts and mountains that experienced the instability.
Today that moisture creeps a little closer to Los Angeles.
There is now a Flash Flood Watch for the LA Co. Mtns and Antelope Valley along with the inland areas of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
You can expect hot and humid conditions throughout the area. The best t-storm chance will be mountains and high desert.
However, tonight and tomorrow the moisture and lift stretches into the coastal plain, so we all have a shot at a t-storm or shower.
The concern from now until Tuesday will be a slow moving storm cell. This could definitely trigger flash flooding especially in burn areas.
The extended forecast include warm temperatures throughout the week and a threat of showers and thunderstorms for the high desert through Thursday.
Basin – mid 80s to upper 80s
Beaches – upper 70s to low 80s
Valleys – upper 90s to near 100
Mountains – low 70s
Deserts – upper 90s to near 100
