Forecast

December 22, 2022 report

 

December 22, 2022

A solid layer of low clouds and fog remains throughout the valley this morning. The base of the overcast is between 200 and 600 feet. For yet another day, clearing seems unlikely at most locations. Upper level high pressure continues to have a clamp on the valley. Warm, subsiding air compressing downward towards the earth is trapping a very moist, cold layer in the lower 1,500 feet of the atmosphere. Upper level high pressure centered off the northern Baja, California coast ridges northward right off the Pacific coast.  There are changes on the horizon, however,  which will bring rai back to the valley and end the fog regime as well as bringing much warmer temperatures. Initially, the high will begin to break down over the Pacific Northwest, allowing the westerlies to break through from the eastern Pacific. Storms will move from west northeast onto the west coast. As each successive storm moves inland, it will move  back further south, eventually bringing rain back to the valley. We could see rain as early as Monday night or Tuesday but Wednesday appears to be a better target date.

 

Forecast:  Fog and/or low clouds through Saturday with local  areas of partial clearing.. areas of fog and low clouds Sunday morning. Becoming partly cloudy Sunday afternoon. mostly cloudy Monday and Monday night.   A chance of showers Tuesday. Showers becoming likely Tuesday night and Wednesday with a chance of showers Thursday.

 

Temperatures:

High temperatures both today and Friday will warm into the low to mid 50s in areas with some clearing to possibly low 50s where local clearing occurs. Lows tonight and Friday night will chill into the 30s.
