SYNOPSIS
Temperatures will be a bit warmer today and much warmer for Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure aloft moves across southern California. Cooler for Thursday and Friday as a weak midlevel shortwave/disturbance moves inland through southern California, then a little warmer again for next weekend.

DISCUSSION
FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE...
SAN DIEGO...WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES...

The patches of drizzle this morning will likely be the last precipitation seen in much of SoCal for the foreseeable future. A 500mb low will continue moving eastward across the Four Corners/Southern Rockies regions today with high pressure building in from the West over SoCal. This will lead to a steady warming trend that lasts through Wednesday. Highs today will be anywhere from 2 to 5 degrees warmer than yesterday’s the coast, and upwards of 6 to 12 degrees warmer across other inland areas. For Tuesday, additional warmth of anywhere from 4 to 12 degrees is expected across all areas. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be the warmest days of the week with widespread highs in the upper 60s to low 70s at the coast, middle 70s to lower 80s in the inland valleys, middle 60s to low 70s in the mountains, upper 70s to low 80s in the High Desert, and middle 90s in the Lower Deserts.

Later Wednesday, the 500mb pattern will shift from ridging and high pressure to a weak 500mb shortwave traversing the region on Thursday and Friday. This system looks rather moisture-starved in ensemble precipitation and PWAT guidance, with very few ensemble members showing measurable precip and PWATs generally of 0.50-0.80” along and near the coast. It will however be strong enough to bring some cooling on both Thursday and Friday, with highs generally 2 to 5 degrees cooler each day as well as a deeper marine layer on these days. A weak ridge then looks to build back in for this weekend leading to a few degrees of warmth and a shallower marine layer on Saturday and Sunday.
