Well if you liked the weather last week, then you won’t be disappointed by the weather this week. It’s going to be more of the same, dry. Except for a dry open wave moving up into SOCAL today, bringing cloudy weather to our area, the storm door has pretty much been slammed shut. All Due to strong high pressure sitting off the West Coast into the Great Basin. Looking farther out, the blocking pattern created by that strong ridge off the Coast continues to limit chances of precipitation in our Forecast area. Things could change of course, but right now any big storms before the end of January look unlikely…DMATT
