Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Dec. 13)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — A weak disturbance is sliding into the Southwest today.
We will start things off with a stronger on-shore flow. That will help to drop our temperatures down a couple of degrees from yesterday’s highs.
There were some clouds out there as well. As we progress through the day, the inside slider will move to the Southeast.
Daytime highs today should top out slightly below average.
We will quickly turn things around as high pressure builds into the Great Basin and into Nevada. This will give us an off-shore flow and kick up some winds.
Wind Advisories have been issued for early tomorrow morning which will run through Sunday mid day.
Temperatures will pop up as a result of this off-shore flow. Look for highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
Amazingly in the middle of December we will also be talking about high fire danger. This is indicative of the very dry year we are having.
Normally we would have had enough rainfall and snow, that fire danger would not necessarily be a primary factor, however, we will be dealing with very low humidities and gusty winds this weekend.
The winds relax later Sunday, but the pleasant temperatures stay with us on Monday and Tuesday.
The system that looked like it might give us some rain next week is coming up dry now (this is what has happened to nearly every system this season). If we get anything it will be very light.
Basin – mid 60s
Beaches – mid 60s
Valleys – mid 60s
Mountains – mid 40s
Deserts – upper 50s
