Christmas: Mild, breezy?

By Jim Purpura. Posted December 20, 2011, 8:15 AM.



The storm system that brought our light rain to the coast and some inland valley areas is moving into the Baja and away from southern California. However a cold trough of low pressure moving through the Great Basin/Great Plains will bring another round of offshore winds spilling into the Inland Empire today, and then again for the period Thursday through Christmas Day.

It will be breezy across northern portions of the Inland Empire today, with only light winds for southwestern Riverside County. The next round of offshore winds, probably in the light to moderate range, will affect the area Thursday through Sunday, Christmas Day.

Along with the offshore winds, a ridge of high pressure will build into the area, bringing some of the warmest temperatures in several weeks to the region. High temperatures in many locations Saturday through Monday will range from the upper 60s to the mid 70s, with the warmest day being Christmas Day.

Also, the winter solstice, marking the first day of Winter, and the shortest day of the year, is Thursday at 9:30am.
