Discussion

A marine layer of clouds kept us mostly cloudy yesterday and there will be plenty of low clouds sticking around for today and tomorrow as well. Temperatures will continue to be slightly cooler-than-normal in the LA metro region with highs struggling to escape the 60’s to close out the work week. The onshore flow will tend to weaken later this weekend and early next week and that will lead to slightly milder conditions with highs near 70 degrees each day along with the return of afternoon sunshine. As far as the sun is concerned, for the second day in a row sunspot AR1504 erupted and sent a coronal mass ejection (CME) towards the Earth. This new CME is expected to merge with the initial CME from two days ago to deliver a combined blow to the Earth's magnetic field on Saturday. Sky watchers should watch for auroras very late tonight and again tomorrow night.
