Mini September Heat Wave, No Changes Expected

With high pressure in place and not going anywhere, the weather won't change much in the coming week. Hot, sunny, & dry for the foreseeable future.

It's really kind of a quiet forecast without any notable changes for this week.  

The only interesting weather feature out there at the moment it what's left of Hurricane Ileana way out in the Pacific, and the only effect we're seeing here in the LA Area are some increased ocean swells and high surf.  I'm not expecting any further influence from the system.

Temperatures this week will continue above normal. Some are calling it a "mini heat-wave."  The good news is, since it's so dry, we won't have the humidity factor to bump up the heat index.  So it'll be hot, but not terribly uncomfortable like it was a few weeks ago.  The forecast highs for the this week are all within four degrees of each other, so really no changes expected through the end of the forecast period.  Expect mid 90s with lows dipping into the high 60s during the overnight hours.

One of the forecast models does indicate some moisture coming into the area on Monday into Tuesday, but forecasters have very little confidence in this scenario and the outlooks remains bone dry.  Maybe a few high clouds here and there, but expect sunny skies to dominate.

Remnants of tropical disturbances Ileana and John are both having a go at the area, really totally dismantling this forecast. Tropical moisture is streaming in, evidenced by satellite imagery. This had brought huge changes to the forecast. We've already had some light rain here at the SCWC, and skies are overcast, really limiting the heat for today. National Weather Service doppler radar indicates scattered light showers across the entire area. I'm not sure how any of these could build into thunderstorms given the lack of heating due to cloud cover, but we'll keep an eye on it.
