Thanksgiving weekend weather was absolutely immaculate for those of you with holiday traditions involving outdoor team sports. High pressure has kept the jet stream to the north and the majority of the wet weather as well.
Our warming trend peaked today with most areas reaching or exceeding the forecast highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Down along the coast, dense fog has been an issue overnight into the morning hours. That pattern is expected to continue for the next few days, prompting a dense fog advisory to be issued for those areas.
Here in the San Fernando Valley, we're dealing with some smog issues caused by an inversion layer trapping the smog in the lower atmosphere, prompting the AQMD to issue air quality advisories and a rare "No burn alert" for some areas. Otherwise, the sky is clear and is expected to remain that way thgouth midweek.
However, as high pressure exits, daytime highs will drop towards seasonal normals and a series of disturbances begin to track in from the northwest.
It's very unclear right now exactly how these storm systems will play out. Some models have the majority of the activity moving to the north of LA County into Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo, while other models spread the love around a little bit more. Any rain that makes it into the area should be light in nature.
It's just too early to tell exactly how these systems will impact life in the San Fernando Valley beyond saying there will be significantly more cloud cover and mild, seasonal temperatures.
As the week progresses, we'll get a better idea of what to expect.
