Could dry weather come to an end in early 2018

Posted: Updated:

Computer models have quite a dilemma brewing, the American (GFS) model and the European (ECMWF) couldn't disagree more about the Jan 1st-4th.  The American model likes it bone dry waiting for wet weather to wait until the 8th, the European model likes 1-3" beginning as early as Sunday night into Monday, lingering into Tuesday morning.  If you had to find the note on agreement it is that the dry weather looks to end but it is more a question of when.  Hopefully we'll get better guidance soon, but for now, I am going to side with the dry solution simply because the GFS has pretty steady this season, but I fully expect this period of the forecast to change.

Until then you can expect more of the same.  The high over the West continues with locally gusty offshore winds at times becoming NW in the afternoon.  This will produce more partly cloudy skies and cool overnight lows recovering to mild daytime highs in the 70s for many.  Lows will warm a bit over the course of the week.

Stay tuned for changes in that extended forecast.
