Weather Talk
By Mark Vogan

Californians have to wait a bit longer for summer!

After Death Valley, yesterday topped 100 degrees for the first time and first spot in the US in 2010,  everywhere from the beaches of LA to Death Valley are to cool once again as a storm system brings high winds of beyond 100 mph, heavy rain, mountain snows and heavy rain to northern and central California, temps are to fall off from Crescent City to Oceanside as the trough, a major trough of cold air aloft pushes down…. 60s to around 70 for LA to showers possible tonight there… Heavier rains and wind expected more so further north of the LA basin and Southern California… We could perhaps see another 100 today for Death Valley, if, upper 90s are likely before cloudiness rolls in and highs tomorrow are trimmed…

Scots frustrated at the southeast of England’s warmth but everywhere across the UK is to cool off

Whilst it remained “mild” here with a 59 degree high at my house under heavy clouds and periods of rain, some heavy around 5-7pm, a pocket of clear skies have allowed temperatures around London and on south into Kent to push to positively summer-like 70s under sunny skies. Tomorrow we may see 72 or 73 degree around Greater London before cooler, more unsettled weather returns to ALL of the UK including more unsettled weather for here over the next 5-day period… (check back often to “Weather Talk” for British weather updates.
