Cold Start, But Warmer Weather Gradually Moving InNovember 28th, 2012 at 4:16 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
After a cold, frosty start, it has turned into a pretty nice afternoon with sun & 40s. Some high cirrus may blur the beautiful full moon some late & may bring a halo, but it will still drop into the middle 20s. Highs tomorrow will be warmer near 50 with high cirrus with some altostratus/patchy altocumulus dimming that sun at times. Winds will be southerly at 10-15 mph. With a light south wind, lows of 32-35 are likely tomorrow night.
You can see the polar jet flattening out & gradually shifting northward, showing the change in the weather as very stormy weather hammers the West Coast. In fact, over the next 5 days, up to 12″ of rain may fall in central California with flooding & mudslides. The potential of showers may occur for 6-7 consecutive days in Los Angeles as the “Pineapple Express” floods California with persistent rain. Powerful storm systems will continue to bring strong winds, too, with feet upon feet of snow in higher elevations.
