Forget The Cold Snap, Return To Warm SoCal Weather

Posted: Updated:

Strong high pressure over the West with an offshore flow will produce another beautiful, warm winter day across southern California. Yesterday Fullerton reached 85 degrees, the warmest in the nation. Downtown L.A. warmed to 81, 13 above the average high of 68. This was the warmest day of the winter so far and the warmest temperature recorded since November 24th.

Today will see similar temperatures with sunny and areas of gusty Santa Ana winds. Beaches should reach about 72 with 80 degrees in Downtown L.A. Wind advisories are in effect for all of Ventura County and the mountains, passes and canyons of L.A. County. Some isolated wind gusts could reach 50 mph.

Tomorrow should be the last day of the warm weather as the cooler onshore flow should start to return on Wednesday. Extended forecast models are showing the possibility of wet weather for southern California by this weekend. So far, Downtown L.A. Has only received .15" of rain in January. During an average January, 3.12" falls making it the second wettest month of the year. Our season (which starts on July 1st) to date total is only 3.37" which is now exactly 3" below the average to date of 6.37".

Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather while it lasts!
