A round of record breaking temperatures for the month of February hit Southern California, hotter temperatures projected after the weekend along with a system being monitored after the 17th.

A large ridge of high pressure situated over the Western United States is providing the region with the hotter temperatures, temperatures giving some a chance to take a ‘winter swim’ in their pools.  These temperatures will drop 5-10 degrees as the ridge breaks down … however will return by the weekend.  The temperatures with this go around haven’t been broken in spots since the 1800s … a big eye opener.

Over the weekend, expecting the ridge to be overhead and this will cause an offshore flow (Santa Ana Winds) for the prone areas … along with hotter temperatures again.  Temperatures could be 5-8 degrees hotter than the temperatures that hit with this last event.

On November 12, 2015 I released my final forecast . So far the Northern CA forecast being better in terms of rainfall/storms than Southern CA has come true.
 
But take a look at the February 2016 forecast. ‘Ridging at times’ has come true, with what will run into slightly above average temperatures by the time this month is over as we get periods of colder air in. Usually February has way way above average precipitation. But I was ‘bold’ and my numbers suggested otherwise. MARCH is where the ‘March Miracle Storms’ will happen if my trends continue …
 
This was a whopping 90 day Super Long Range Forecast for this month calling for ridging at times … Possibly a record forecast call …

So where’s the rain?  The ridge would bring moisture in from the south-southwest after February 17th and this would cause a risk of showers and maybe even some thunderstorms, similar to September weather … rather than February.

El Nino values have jumped back up to +2.6c … and my theory suggests we need this between +1.6c and +2.4c and that has yet to happen … but it will soon.

As it does, the ridge will break and allow low pressure to dominate and storms to drop in.  Of course, as stated before … this is likely a late-season impact and a prolonged El Nino.

So hang in there, large high pressure systems like this means that storms are on each side of it … east and west.  The western side is what will impact us after the warmer weather is over.
