–Our cold front moved through last night! Relief from the heat has arrived.
–Pleasant conditions for our Friday and Saturday
–Rain chances for everyone Sunday night and Monday
–Even with rainfall coming, drought conditions will persist in the long term
The cold front finally passed through late last night/early this morning. We have some pretty cool looking clouds as a result of that. It sure would be nice if these clouds could have gotten big enough to make some rain.
Saturday is looking very warm and a bit breezy. I can’t rule out a very isolated afternoon/evening storm, but most of us won’t see a thing. The better rain chances come later Sunday and into Monday. I think we’ll all see rain from this front and that is very good news! As of now, it looks like we could all see at least a half an inch or so of rain.
Behind that system, even cooler air will move in from the north behind that front. Overnight lows will fall into the mid 40s!
Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast
It was a rough October for southern California in 1987. An earthquake on this day shook much of the southern part of the state. Then, afternoon temperatures soared in the days to come, with many places reaching and exceeding 100 degrees. At least one location reached 111 degrees before the heat wave broke. This is referred to as the “shake and bake” October.
All is quiet in the tropics.
