METEOR SHOWER THIS WEEK
We've been pretty lucky lately our weather has been really nice. I think that's a sign you need to get your lottery ticket because luck is in the air! The drawing ends at 7:45 PM and if you're going to pick up that lottery ticket temps will be dropping to the mid 70s by 7:30 this evening.
Strong winds have picked up in our mountains and deserts today. Tehachapi saw a wind gust of 30 MPH and Edwards AFB has seen a gust up to 29 MPH, which is resulting in a high fire danger in our higher elevations. Those winds will diminish tonight, but then pick up again on Saturday afternoon so the fire threat returns tomorrow.
A Rex Block Pattern remains overhead and this will keep conditions pretty similar into the next couple of days. We'll warm into the upper 80s in the valley and low 70s in the mountains. Then by Sunday, the low pushes across Central California and that could bring us a chance for rain Sunday in the mountains and deserts. Any rain we do see will be very very light though so don't expect a whole lot if you're included in that chance.
This weekend we will also travel through the dust trail left over from Halley's Comet. We could see 20 meteors an hour and we should have fair visibility. Make sure to go outside and check it out!
