.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Wednesday Night)...

Rather quiet wx expected through the short term period.
Subtropical ridge axis has been building across the region
today...resulting in drier air aloft...plenty of sunshine...and
hotter temperatures. Mainly clear skies are expected late this
afternoon and through much of the night. By late in the
night...nocturnal LLJ is prog to develop across the Brush Country
with areas of stratus developing under thermal inversion. Any
clouds that exist in the morning will quickly mix out with even
drier air mixing to the surface tomorrow. Given slightly drier
near surface airmass on Wed...max temps should be a degree or two
higher than today/s values.

&&

.LONG TERM (Thursday through Tuesday)...

At the start of the long term period the mid-level ridging begins
to shift towards the east-northeast allowing for a return of
higher Gulf moisture into the region beginning late Thursday/early
Friday. A few boundaries, mostly the daily seabreeze circulation,
will help to develop convection each afternoon through early next
week as our PWATs climb back towards the 2 inch mark. We continue
with the chance PoPs through much of the longterm period over the
eastern 2/3rds of the CWA and begin to trim up along the western
half by late in the period. Temperatures look to remain slightly
below to right around average given the higher moisture content
and rain chances with more cloud cover expected.
