Looks like some mid 80s or even low 90s for the weekend here before it cools off again after Monday.

'Some rain', I said, as opposed to an endless deluge with temps never going above 50°, lol...

Sunny and 82 in Palm Springs... no wind at all and perfect visibility. Could not be nicer. My daughter was at the pool already at 9 a.m.

Beautiful afternoon in Irvine as well with temperatures in the low 70s. Here's the view from my cubicle.

Nice weather is boring weather, but overcast weather without rain is even more boring and wasteful.

It's also a waste of sunshine if you don't take a 20 minute walk around lunchtime when it gets dark so early.

I see that.

Upper 80s to low 90s and sunny for our trip though. And it will probably be sunny at home for us by next Wednesday while it's raining here.

We have been able to get noticeably tan already. Thought the sun angle might be too low. Prime us for Hawaii in a few weeks.

No low clouds here this morning. Rollercoaster temperatures the next few days to get rid of the monotony with rain possible by as early as Tuesday afternoon, but not before a few hot days.

We are getting our maximum amount of daylight loss in the morning of the year now at about 56 seconds a day, despite the fact that Winter Solstice is a little more than a month away. The afternoon daylight loss per day is decreasing steadily now with today about 34 seconds shorter than yesterday.

It's interesting how much warmer than Quartzsite Palm Springs can get. But I've seen it where Quartzsite is warmer than Palm Springs, so it isn't always the case. Only 79° here right now at 1:20 Arizona time.

Haze may finally be wiped away west of the mountains tonight as the offshore flow had to erode its way through a marine layer that was unusually persistent for November. Could make it into the low 90s here tomorrow.

88 so far in Fullerton. Sunset tonight is about half a minute later than the Winter Solstice (December 21) with the closest sunset time being tomorrow. Then by Tuesday it's about half a minute earlier.

Getting dark early enough for you?

Always wondered if there's any other place in the world where the day can be above 90 on a day that the sun sets before 5 PM. Solar noon here is still at 11:35 AM today and tomorrow. In Honolulu, solar noon is 12:16 PM today and in Barrow, which begins their polar night on Tuesday, solar noon is at 1:12 PM, which means sunrise is after 12 PM there today.

Obs show Van Nuys at 102, but I’m dubious. Next hottest is Fullerton at 93. Be interesting to see if the Van Nuys numbers go into the record.

Tujunga, CA (15 miles N of Downtown L.A.) - Elev. 1,860 ft.

 

Eugene, OR (5 miles SSW) - Elev. 850 ft.

Here we go. Evening daylight loss about to fall below 30 seconds a day while the sunrise continues to become about 56 seconds later every morning.

Pattern change begins today. However, still looks to be pretty warm. Maybe some rain before sunset, which is now earlier than it is on the shortest day of the year.

From the Phoenix NWS discussion:

 

Activity this afternoon generally materialized a few hours faster
than anticipated and model performance (including the HREF and
local CAMs) has struggled. In these scenarios, it is prudent to rely
on a HRRR time-lagged ensemble for the near-term, which indicates
that scattered showers will persist across south-central Arizona
through this evening. Latest IR satellite shows cooling cloud tops
across Pima County and it`s reasonable to expect this activity will
lift northward this evening around the Baja Peninsula closed low. A
Flash Flood Watch remains in effect, though the relatively fast
storm motion of the convection may limit the flood threat.

Models remain in good agreement that the focus will shift westward
overnight as vorticity and jet-forced ascent increases ahead of a
closed low diving down the central California coast. NAEFS continues
to highlight the central Colorado River Valley with PWAT percentiles
exceeding the 99th percentile. Consequently, the strongest cells will
be capable of producing a very quick 1 to 2 inches, which could lead
to flash flooding. This is reflected in the latest official
forecast, which again is weighted heavily towards the WPC QPF.

Predictability is expected to increase Wednesday as a broken line of
convection develops ahead of the aforementioned low pressure system
and migrates eastward across Arizona. A low-level jet
intensifying to 40 kt will approach an all-time maximum across
southern Maricopa County late Wednesday morning. Although the wind
profile won`t be ideal for training cells, some back-building along
and ahead of the line will enhance the threat of flash flooding.
Latest HREF also suggests the strongest storms will be capable of
producing wind gusts as high as 50 mph. General consensus is that the
line of storms will move east of Gila County Wednesday evening, with
isolated showers generally dissipating elsewhere.

Raining here again. The storm is mostly focused on Orange and San Diego counties, which means Thunder98 won't be seeing much of anything.

There was a rainbow earlier this morning, but it only lasted a few minutes.
