The forecast for March went as expected, almost too good with the correct average temperatures and average to above average rainfall across the region, noting the Los Angeles is the target for all of these. Read on for what will April hold.
April 1st started out with above average temperatures, however a trough system moving through the area will cool us down over the next several days. During the second week of April the heat is expected to return under a quick ridge of high pressure so if you’re planning anything around say the 7th through the 11th then you are in luck for some nice springtime weather, even nudging slightly toward the Summer temps, which will run into parts of the Coachella Music Festival as well near the end of the ‘heatwave’ and into another storm pattern after the 11-12th period so it could very well run into cooler than average for the Music Festival this year, with nominal gusty winds and even the risk of precipitation.
Mid-April will be the brief stormy pattern based off my numbers and we should have less storm patterns after say the 16th or so, but remain with a trough bringing in similar weather that we are seeing this week with the cooling and off and on light shower activity all the way through the end of the month.
Given what I see here, April will be average in temperatures as a result and 0.5 to 1.5″ of rainfall for Downtown Los Angeles for slightly below to slightly above average values for precipitation.
