GENERALLY A DRY PATTERN FOR SOCAL

The next several days look mainly dry. I'm watching a fast-moving storm system that could bring some rain by next week...possibly Thursday or Friday (2/7 to 2/8).

RAIN TOTALS FROM FRIDAY 1/25/2013 - SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA

Most of the rain has now pushed east. An isolated shower or two is still possible this weekend, then we are headed towards another long stretch of dry weather. It's good that we got this rainfall! I've posted the totals below.

 

FUTURE RAIN CHANCES

A weak storm will pass overhead Thursday into Friday and bring our area a chance for a few passing showers. Another front then approaches Sunday into Monday with isolated showers possible. Monday and Tuesday will be cool, but the warm and dry weather will return for the rest of the month.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE IN SAN DIEGO IS ABOUT A WEEK AWAY

The weather is almost perfect across San Diego and all of Southern California. As much as I'm enjoying it, we need some rainfall. Warm and dry weather will persist through all of the upcoming workweek, then a storm system will approach the area from the west and bring us cooler weather with a chance for some rain next Sunday night into Monday (1/27 to 1/28).

The warm and dry pattern will then return for the rest of January into the first week of February. In other words, we only have one chance for rain in the next three weeks!

I want to also mention that the transition period from Tuesday (1/29) to Thursday (1/31) could be interesting for the eastern third of the United States. I wouldn't be surprised if a large snow storm develops somewhere in the Ohio River Valley into New England. It will be fun to watch!

THIS UPCOMING WEEK
SUNDAY, MONDAY & TUESDAY (1/27 to 1/29)
FIRST WEEK OF FEBRUARY
POSSIBLE SNOW STORM TO THE EAST 1/29 TO 1/31

OUTLOOK IN CALIFORNIA FOR THE REST OF JANUARY - MILD & DRY

This cold stretch of weather will eventually come to an end by Tuesday of next week. Afterwards, a persistent pattern will develop for the rest of the month. Temperatures will remain mild with no chance for rain in the foreseeable future. On the flip side, the eastern third of the United States will encounter an extended period of cold weather to finish January. You can spot the trends on the maps below.

FUTURE RAIN CHANCES

A series of fast-moving storm systems will bring some rain to our area for the next week. Showers are possible this afternoon and into tonight. Another chance for rain arrives Thursday, though it doesn't look like a lot. A stronger storm system could bring a more substantial rain next Sunday.

DECEMBER 2012 RECAP - RAINFALL AND TEMPERATURES

I'm not expecting any rain until possibly the middle of next week, so I might as well post a recap of last month.
