Where is Winter in the West?

4 Feb 2018, 10:26 am

Record warm days continue across the West Coast. Just yesterday, new records was set from Washington to California.

It was even an exceptionally warm and dry January for southwestern California.

Not a fan of the warmth? Well, then you won’t be pleased with the temperature outlook for the next two weeks. It looks like the west will likely be contending with temperatures above average.

A high pressure is setting up a ridge across the west. This will keep the west exceptionally warm and dry. The jet stream keeps the storm track off towards the north and allows temperatures to warm up about 10 to 20 degrees above average.

Averages for places like Los Angeles, CA for this time of year are in the middle 60s. Temperatures will be upper 70s to even the 80s for the next 7 days.

That warming trend works all the way up the coast to places like Medford, OR.
