Our first extended period of rainfall really turned out to be more of an annoyance than anything else. Several waves of light, almost drizzly rain fell on Studio City.
All told, the 6-day stretch produced highly variable rainfall amounts across the LA area. Studio City Weather Center recorded nine tenths of an inch of rain, bringing our seasonal total to 1.82"
The weather for the next several days will be mostly pleasant as the controlling features of the weather pattern will be rather wishy-washy.
Weak high pressure is in control now, but a weak low will approach tonight, followed by another weak high pressure ridge on Thursday, and a very cold low pressure system sinking down out of the Northeast over the weekend.
The product of all of this back-and-forth will mostly be varying amounts of clouds and sun, and a cooling trend through the weekend.
On Saturday, however, a cold upper low, along with a few other weather features in place "could combine to produce a dangerous wind event" according to this morning's National Weather Service forecast discussion.
So the weekend is the focus right now. A lot of weather features have to fall in place in order for this high wind event to materialize, but that's what the forecast models are pointing at right now. We'll know more as the weekend draws closer.
