Warm weekend ahead

Posted December 10, 2010, 12:01 PM.

With warm, sunny weather on the way this weekend, it won't feel very much like winter, even though the winter solstice is only eleven days from now.

Strong high pressure aloft and weak offshore flow are predicted to raise afternoon temperatures to between 15 and 20 degrees above their seasonal norms, peaking on Sunday. Most locations should be in the lower to upper 80's.

Nights will be clear and on the cool side, in the 40's and 50's, but nowhere near some of the near-freezing temperatures we've had recently.

The best days to be out and about will be Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The effects of the high pressure system will begin to fade on Monday, and by later in the week, more clouds and some rain is again possible.

The winter solstice will be at 3:38pm PST on December 21st, 2010.
