It’s a California kind of day here at Victoria-Weather. Which is great, given the slice of winter in the Plains.
At 751AM, PT, San Diego was reporting a temperature of 66 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Upper level ridging was dominating the western third of the country, leading to very dry and warm conditions. Most of the Coastal Mountains were under red flag warnings, and there were, in fact, fires being reported north of the San Diego area.
Fortunately for firefighters, there is a pattern change coming. A weak upper level trough will start to see stronger flow aloft move through it, and as a response, a weak area of low pressure will begin to spin up off the coast of northern California. Southwesterly flow will begin to come off the of the chilly central Pacific, which will mean a reemergence of a marine layer on Sunday morning, as well as cooler temperatures and some drizzle by the end of the day Sunday.
