California’s Inversion a Contradistinction of Temperatures

14 Jan 2018, 2:51 pm

Cool and cloudy conditions expected through Monday in the San Joaquin Valley of California all courtesy of a strong temperature inversion. Cooler, moist air at lower elevations across the valley are currently capped off by dry, warmer air above.

Below the clouds at lower elevations near the valley floor temperatures will remain cool through M.L.K. Day.  Areas nearby at higher elevations will enjoy sunshine and warmer than average high temperatures through Monday as well.  

If you live in the valley and would like a to see sunnier warmer conditions, head to the mountains and get above the inversion boundary.  By Wednesday, after a cold front has pushed by, expect more sunshine and warmer temperatures to return across the San Joaquin Valley.
