High pressure strengthening across the region will bring fair and warmer weather this week as daytime highs climb into the 50's, while overnight lows generally cool to the 20's. A weak onshore flow will return over the next couple of days, before transitioning back to an offshore flow around middwek. Santa Ana winds could be rather gusty below passes and canyons Tuesday night into Wednesday, but not as strong as our last. Temperatures look to remain above average through next weekend as our forecast stays dry. Longer range forecast models are still advertising a pattern change across the region early next month. Suggesting high pressure may finally break down off the west coast, allowing the storm track to start digging further south with a possible return of wet weather for our area.
If travel plans bring you into the mountains during the winter months come prepared, pack extra food, water, warm clothing, and always carry tire chains!
