Dry weather could linger for 2 weeks or more

Posted: Updated:

The next chance of rain isn't a great one, early next week an inside slider backs into California.  It really looks moisture-starved so even if it were technically to rain it wouldn't be the kind of system that would make an impact on the expanding drought.

Beyond that, models showed some hope around the 20th with the ridge pattern finally breaking down but today's runs are no longer very optimistic about that.  The issue is that we are 4-6+" behind on rain for the season and Feb. is statistically the wettest month of our rainy season.

In the short term, more night and morning offshore low with afternoon onshore flow but generally light.  In fact, I think the offshore is so light that marine layer currently on the Southcoast could creep around the point north and give coastal beaches in SLO county some clouds early and cooler temps Tuesday.  Otherwise than those clouds early I think more sun and warmer than average temps continue until early.

(A note from PGE's John Lindsey worth considering: only 2 completely dry Feb.'s on record here in 1895 and 1952)
