In the latest weather update, it is evident that there will be a shift in conditions as we move closer to the weekend. Currently, temperatures are around 47 degrees with no significant change from yesterday. However, the presence of stronger winds in some areas is making it feel cooler than it actually is. So, if you’re stepping out, be prepared for some chilly weather.
A frost advisory has been issued for Riverside County and Temecula for tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to dip to around 32 degrees, leading to possible frost development. This advisory highlights the need to take extra precautions, especially in these areas.
Examining the storm tracker, we see a ridge stretching all the way from Arizona to Southern California. This ridge is responsible for bringing in clearing conditions from the Pacific. However, by Thursday, rain showers are anticipated in Northern and Central California. While the impact of this system on our area is not significant, it is expected to make a noticeable swing towards us by Sunday.
As we approach the weekend, there is a storm on the horizon. Currently, computer models are divided, with some suggesting good rain and others indicating only spotty rain. This forecast will become clearer as the week progresses and we gather more data. The amount and timing of the rain are still uncertain, with the possibility of most of it falling to the north of us.
An important factor to consider is the potential influence of an atmospheric river. If we tap into it, we could experience a setup similar to previous weather systems, albeit with less rain. Such systems tend to linger for a few days, so it’s something to keep an eye on.
Looking ahead to this week, including Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, conditions are expected to be very pleasant with plenty of sunshine. However, we can anticipate some cloud cover creeping in on Thursday and Friday as the aforementioned storm affects Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. It will take a few more days for this system to reach Southern California, but it appears that rain is on the horizon for the upcoming weekend.
Overall, it’s a fifty-fifty situation where the weather could go either way. As we monitor the progress of this system and gather more information, we will be able to provide a more accurate forecast. Until then, enjoy the nice conditions in the coming week and keep an eye out for any updates regarding the potential rain over the weekend.
