Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Aug. 7)

STUDIO CITY (KCAL9) — There’s a bit of a thicker marine layer Thursday morning running at about 1,800 feet deep.

That will keep daytime highs 3 to 5 degrees below average for this time of year. But expect good clearing for a lovely afternoon. This pattern will remain in place through the weekend.

Another upper level low is going to drop into Northern California and hold through the beginning of next week. That means there won’t be much of a change through Wednesday of next week.

By Thursday and Friday, expect some warming from high pressure that will develop. Look for a significant warm up at the end of next week.

There’s some dangerous rip currents that are developing to the south. A beach hazard advisory has been issued in Orange County for dangerous rip currents, and those could effect beaches in LA County as well.

The double tropical trouble pushing towards the Hawaiian islands continues. Iselle and Julio are both progressing towards the Island Chain as Category 1 Hurricanes.

Iselle has actually gained a little punch over the last 24 hours instead of dying out. It ran into some dry air Wednesday, so it lost a little steam but then reorganized and could hit the island as a Category 1 with wind speeds of 60 to 70 miles an hour. It will quickly drop down to a tropical storm at that point.

Timing wise, it should make landfall Thursday night at some point. Julio is right behind Iselle, and it will veer to the north of Hawaii. Impacts from Julio will be wind, surf and rain, but it will get the southwest edge of the storm.
