Discussion

The combination of monsoonal moisture and an upper level disturbance will continue to give us the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms to close out the week and some of the rain can get heavy in the mountains. A low pressure system will then close in on the coast this weekend which will bring about a slight cooling trend to the area along with a renewed onshore marine-layer flow of air. Looking ahead, there is the chance that some moisture could head into the southern California region early next week from a tropical system south of Baja that could become named Fabio as it turns to the northwest from its current location.
