HOT WEATHER BY SUNDAY

Our weather roller coaster ride is finally coming in to the station. Ups and downs are over in what has been a mercurial month. Now, following the exit of yesterdays' cool and windy system, temperatures will rise to above normal levels and pretty much hold there. Highs should crack the 80-degree barrier tomorrow and the 90-degree threshold on Sunday. Skies will be sunny throughout. It will feel more like June than late April by early next week. Overnight lows, which have been in the 40s, will rise to the 50s and even low 60s by Monday.

I've been very interested in an upcoming cut off-low in the eastern Pacific that both major weather models have been touting since last Monday. This cut-off system has been anticipated by the models due to a general pattern change that has brought our roller coast ride to an end. The past few days have been useless to forecasters in determining next week's prospects regarding the low, with widely disparate predictions by those models. But now a consensus is finally gelling that indicates the low will develop far out to our west, sit there for a couple of days, and then eject out into northern California. This solution would result in little effect for Kern county and central California. I am now leaning toward that idea and have removed rain chances from the 10-day forecast. At the same time, it appears the long wave low pressure positioning far to the west of our state will eventually shift eastward, such that rainfall is still possible a bit beyond the 10-day time frame. It would portend some shower activity for the first week of May.

Time will tell regarding any rain. The heat is essentially here, though, so enjoy the summer preview.
