The low we’ve been watching all week made it's way through Southern California last night and caused light showers mainly south of Interstate 10. Close to home in Studio City, we experienced a few sprinkles, but for the most part the forecast was right on track: light showers possible, no measurable rain expected. Here at the Studio City Weather Center, I can report trace amounts of rain, but not enough to tip the bucket on my rain gauge.
Shower activity will come to an end by Monday morning and skies will clear; however temperatures will not recover much at all. Expect highs in the neighborhood of 60 on Monday and Tuesday. High pressure will build in on Wednesday, allowing for temperatures to normalize for a few days.
With this past weekend's low exiting the picture, all eyes are now focused on next weekend. A frontal system is expected to begin affecting the area by late Friday, possibly Saturday, and has the potential to be a pretty decent rainmaker, according to the National Weather Service. All the forecast models are actually in pretty good agreement about the cold front and associated strong low pressure system, with a few variations on exactly when it’s expected to arrive. We’ll get a better idea on timing, track, and intensity as the weekend draws closer. Stay tuned.
