It has been a while. You should know by now when it comes to me posting an update, no news is no news, boring weather. For the last couple of days, I have been following what looks to be a pattern change coming soon–slightly cooler and wetter.
Today there will be a slight chance of isolated showers, mainly across the higher elevations to the north. Tomorrow we may see the ridge move slightly east enough to trigger some scattered showers across the forecast area.
Friday shower chances will decrease as the ridge meanders back west. On Saturday, the ridge will move east again as low-pressure builds in across Southern California. The models then show a surge of moisture coming into the area triggering widespread showers Saturday night, with more showers possible every afternoon through at least Thursday. The ensemble models show this surge lasting for quite some time.
Here are the maps in motion from now through next Thursday. Green is rain the darker the shade, the heavier the rain.
I hope the models are right about this, I have found myself in “believe it when I see it” mode for the last couple of weeks. I am looking forward to moving back to being cautiously optimistic. One day at a time…
