Heavy Cloud Development Forecasted Los Angeles & Southern California; Light Rain Expected With Colder Temperatures

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Weather patterns will remain unpredictable throughout the week, with the possibility of rain on Wednesday and through the holiday weekend on the horizon.

Temperatures will be cool, with expected highs in the 50s and low 60s.

According to the National Weather Service, an upper-level low-pressure system spinning off the coast of far Northern California is drawing moisture from a long fetch of subtropical precipitation and pushing it straight towards Southern California.

Specifically, this moisture surge will continue to deliver widespread heavy cloud cover to our region throughout the day in terms of our weather today. Because the main cold front is still offshore, there is no rain today.

Instead, expect a gloomy and cold day with maximum temperatures ranging from the lower to mid-60s degrees.

Even though surface pressure gradients are weakly offshore this morning, there are pockets of brisk northeast winds across the mountains and valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties this morning.

It is expected that these locally brisk winds will persist through the morning before weakening and shifting onshore by the afternoon.

With the passage of the front over the coastal waters and the approach of the show to the Central Coast late tonight and into Wednesday early, there is the possibility of rain.

There is a tiny probability that light rain will cover SLO and northern Santa Barbara County on Wednesday morning, with a slight chance that it may extend into Ventura County by the afternoon.

The front seems to be stalling on the Central Coast through Wednesday before ultimately making its way into Ventura and Los Angeles Counties during the early morning hours of Thursday.

Showers and thunderstorms will likely become more intense throughout the northern half of the region late Wednesday into early Thursday morning as the southwesterly flow aloft increases and a more substantial lift from an upper-level jet sliding southward.

It is projected that heavier rains would have moved towards the southern regions by Thursday afternoon.

Absent any rain talk; temperatures will be comparable to today's, with highs in the low to mid-60s. Thursday will be considerably colder, with temperatures barely breaking the 60-degree threshold all day. The possibility of strong south to southwest winds exists, particularly at higher altitudes.
