A trough will be approaching from out in the Pacific, and this will bring an increase to the marine layer for Thursday morning, meaning that some patchy fog could be hampering the view in Long Beach during the morning hours. However, the fog will lift by the late morning hours, and skies will end up partly sunny. Highs will be in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees for the afternoon high. There will be a little breeze out there as well, with winds out of the south at 5-15 MPH, with gusts up to 20 MPH at times.
With a southwestern flow in place over the Long Beach area, more moisture will be brought in, and this could lead to a very small chance of a shower or two during much of the day. Rain chances will actually go up after 5PM, and will continue through the evening. Otherwise, skies will be mostly cloudy with highs reaching the upper 60s once again. Winds will be quite breezy again, out of the southwest at 5-15 MPH. Chance of rain is a little over 10%, but climbs to 40% after 5PM.
The trough will start to move out of the area later in the day on Saturday and skies will begin to clear out. Before that, there will be a small chance of showers throughout the morning and into the early afternoon hours. I'm holding at the chance of rain at 20%, but I could see that actually rising a little as we progress through the week. It will be really windy out there at times, with winds out of the southwest at 10-20 MPH, with gusts up to 30 MPH at times. Afternoon highs will be in the mid 60s.
The last day of the event weekend will probably feature the best weather day on the forecast. Skies will be mostly sunny, and temperatures will be just a tad warmer. Unfortunately, it will still be quite breezy out there, with winds out of the west-southwest at 5-15 MPH, with gusts up to 25 MPH. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 60s.
Once again, my confidence is a little low on exactly how the weekend's weather is going to play out, but I will make the necessary corrections to the forecast if I see if they are needed. Radar will be up and running on Thursday, after I will be trying to make it through another wave of strong to severe storms on Wednesday in my hometown in Alabama. Have a great week!
