Another Cool-down Expected Friday into The Weekend With Stronger Onshore Flow; Monitoring Volcanic Eruptions At Equator For Future Weather Changes Here


A cool-down is expected and I have issued my wind advisories in all mountain and desert areas through most of the weekend along with the Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo zones on Saturday.  I am also monitoring a 63,000 FT ash cloud from a volcano in Indonesia and what that could do for our near-term weather patterns, plus a look at the fault stress model so read on for details.

Southern California Weather Force has a large scale wind advisory for the area, which does not touch many metro zones and mainly for the mountain and desert region.  Those micro-climate Facebook Groups (Click to find yours) received them before I even went public on the main page so you can see why the micro-climate alerts are equally important. Those groups and the e-mail alert system gets notified.  Expecting gusty winds to maximize in the mountain/desert areas on Friday and Saturday with a fire risk as well.  The Wind Advisory in the desert zones is also my fire weather warning for dry air accompanying the gusty winds.  The strongest winds for Santa Barbara, Vandenberg AFB, and San Luis Obispo will be on Saturday and Bakersfield on your Friday.  Advisory level winds will cease by Sunday …

5. Slight damage occurs to buildings, shingles are blown off of roofs. HIGH WIND WARNING CRITERIA – High Profile Vehicle Roll-Over Possible if weight is not corrected.

4. Twigs and small branches are broken from trees, walking is difficult.  Anything 4 and above will have blowing dust if conditions are dry, which does reduce visibility and make driving difficult …

3. Large trees sway, becoming difficult to walk. POWER SHUTDOWN THRESHOLD during any high fire risk. WIND ADVISORY CRITERIA


The low level moisture may bring areas of fog, but as a concern for light rain from a deep marine layer, the shallow moisture fields will keep it at bay and we will not see much of anything.  June is so far running slightly above average in temperatures for Southern California.

The last week of June we will have another warm-up, but we are remaining to look dry.

I am also monitoring the SO2 from the 63,000 FT ash cloud eruption of the Semeru Volcano in the Indonesia region.  SO2 can be responsible for a colder period during our usually hotter summer months as we did see before.  If it has no effect, we will remain on schedule for a hotter than normal Summer in Southern California.

As for the California Fault Stress Model (Follow the Facebook Page by clicking here), the project is in blackout mode, meaning it is hanging unstable a lot of the times.  The region rang like a bell over the last month and it will continue to do so for the next few.  Magnitude four and higher will happen a lot and there is just no way to say it is a prediction.  The ULF charts are unstable and will be for awhile.  The project is on halt until things quiet down.
