Countywide : Cloudy Skies but No Rain Forecast
The skies may be cloudy, but forecasters say they are not expecting rain this weekend in Orange County.
Forecasters are calling for partly cloudy skies over the weekend, with temperatures ranging from highs in the 60s today and Sunday to overnight lows in the 40s.
“The storm track has moved to the north, so it looks like Northern and Central California will still be seeing most of the rain,” said Kris Farnsworth, a meteorologist with WeatherData, which provides forecasts to The Times.
“But most of Southern California is going to get a break.”
A Pacific storm from the Gulf of Alaska is expected to come ashore at the California and Oregon border today, but whether the bad weather will blow Orange County’s way remains to be seen, Farnsworth said.
“We’re still in a transitional time right now,” he said. “We’re waiting to see if the storm will stay up north or try to come back down.”
Cloudy skies will likely last until the middle of next week. By Wednesday there should be temperatures in the 70s and sunny skies.
“There’s still a lot of tropical moisture in the area, so it’s not going to be a perfectly clear day for a few more days yet,” he said. “But it’s not going to be gloomy or totally cloudy either.”
