Happy Valentine's Day
It is a cool start to this Valentine's Day, but we will have a big warm-up today. A warm front will move up from the Gulf of Mexico this afternoon. This will increase the temperatures and also the humidity. We will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
A strong cold front will move in from the west this evening along with an area of low pressure. Together, these two systems will set off scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong to severe. The best timing is between 8 PM and 1 AM. SPC has put most of the area in a Marginal Risk for severe weather, with a Slight Risk along the far SE LA Coast. The storms could contain damaging winds and a few tornadoes. However, the greatest chance for severe weather looks to be along the immediate coast. Needless to say, if you are headed out to a Valentine's Day Dinner, keep an eye on the weather.
The cold front will move through around Midnight and that will put an end to the storms and severe weather. Then we will be mostly cloudy, breezy and it will turn cooler with lows in the lower 50s on both sides of the lake.
Wednesday will have plenty of clouds around with much cooler temperatures and breezy conditions. Highs will be in the lower 60s. Wednesday Night will become clear with patchy frost north of the lake. Lows will be in the mid 30s north and lower 40s south.
High pressure will sit over us on Thursday and it will stay clear with plenty of sunshine. Highs will be cool in the lower 60s. Another cold night is expected Thursday Night with lows in the mid 30s north with frost, and mid 40s south.
We start to warm back up on Friday with highs in the upper 60s. Some rain returns on Friday Night as a disturbance moves through the Northern Gulf. Lows will be back in the 50s.
