Memorial weekend forecast features Sunday rain

Posted at 10:51 AM, May 25, 2019

Update at 10:50am Saturday by Chief Meteorologist Dave Hovde: As expected today will be cooler than Friday with partly cloudy skies inland and mostly cloudy skies closer to the coast.

Not much chance on the timing of the rain Sunday, the main band arrives in the morning and scattered showers linger into evening.

Here is the Sunday rain mechanism.. a low pressure system dropping in from the north. A mostly over land trajectory is why total rainfall should stay under .50″

Sunday rain still looks to arrive in the morning and become scattered in the afternoon with lingering showers into late evening with mostly cloudy skies Monday (partly cloudy inland).

Here is the rainfall outlook for the Sunday event. Up to .50″ possible. Most should see .30 or less.

The rest of this post contains forecasts from Friday.

A low pressure system approaches the region on Saturday bringing cooler temperatures and increasing clouds. There will be a chance of rain Saturday night into Sunday, with a warming and drying trend early next week.

For Saturday rapidly more onshore flow will allow marine clouds to form later tonight into Saturday morning at beaches and near coastal areas. Some drizzle is possible with the return of marine clouds but for the most part Saturday is dry. The clouds and onshore flow will pull highs back into the 60s near the coast. Inland still a nice Saturday with highs near 70.

There is some instability aloft so some showers are possible at higher elevations in the SB and Ventura mountains.

The upper low that brings us the rain chance drops in late Saturday and departs late Sunday.

Friday=beautiful, Saturday=decent but cooler and more clouds, Sunday=rain returning early with scattered activity into the evening.

Our best chance of rain is Sunday morning but some lingering scattered showers are possible into the evening.

How much rainfall on Sunday, my forecast has been up to .25″ but today I am going to open the high side up to .40″..decent but not exactly a huge storm.

Rainfall amounts with the system should stay under .40″, most locations likely under .25″

We will be dry Sunday night into Monday with a slight warming trend Monday.

A pretty quiet weather pattern next week with near normal temps. This will be easiest to spot inland with some 80s quickly returning.

A potential disturbance comes in the second half of next week, I think we stay dry put temps could fall back a bit with more onshore flow.
