  • First Alert Forecast

    I'm not expecting much change to the sky conditions on Wednesday, with more smoke and haze expected to diminish the air quality. There will be low clouds and fog along the Central Coast and Oxnard Plain early on Wednesday, with mostly clear skies across the South Coast. Temperatures on Wednesday look to warm a few degrees from what we saw on Tuesday...with 70s and 80s for coastal areas south of Point Conception, 60s and 70s to the north, and 80s and 90s in the valleys.

    Beginning Thursday, the influence of a developing trough of low pressure over the west coast will cool afternoon temps.  This doesn't look to be a significant cool down, but temps should drop each day through Friday or Saturday.  Along with the cool down comes a deeper marine layer, with the low clouds reaching into the valleys for the overnight and morning hours. This would be great to help combat the Rey and Chimney Fires. A warming trend follows the cool down as temps warm through early next week to slightly above average for this time of the year.
