Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Friday, Oct 18 @ 12:47pm
Looking at very nice weather out there today, still a bit cool and breezy as a trough moves east of the area. Expect north to northeast winds through this afternoon around 5-15mph with highs in the 50's to around 60-degrees. Light winds through this evening under clear skies as low drop into the 20's and 30's. Temperatures will warm a bit through the weekend as a dry offshore flow develops bringing northeast winds around 5-15mph on Saturday, increasing to 10-20mph on Sunday. Highs will remain in the lower to mid-60's while overnight lows remain in the 20's and 30's. Another weak to moderate Santa Ana event is expected on Monday, bringing gusty northeast winds 10-25mph locally with gusts near 50mph possible below passes and canyons. With limited cold air advection, we should see those highs drop back in the 50's Monday, warming to the 50's by midweek as offshore gradients relax and the onshore flow returns.
