Locally strong offshore winds develop again overnight

Posted at 4:43 PM, Jan 06, 2020

Northeasterly winds were very strong this morning.

Gusts ranged from 35 to 60mph at some locations.

The offshore winds return tonight into Wednesday morning, but are less likely to be as strong. Offshore flow will produce clear skies and low relative humidity levels. The interior valleys look cold again to start but daytime highs Tuesday will be in the lower 60s inland and mid 60s at the coast.

NW Winds return Wednesday into Friday, 15-25mph with locally higher gusts. There will be a passing low pressure system Thursday what could actually produce a few showers, but amounts are likely to stay under .10"

Dry conditions Friday with the return of offshore night and morning winds.

The weekend looks windy out of the NW 15-30mph, there are a series of low pressure systems cutting to the east of us. These "inside sliders" are missing deep moisture connections so while showers are possible, they don't look likely at this point.

Next week has more rain potential, models even like a potentially strong patter developing. Stay tuned for more details as we approach this part of the forecast.
