On February 10, storm activity has increased on the western side of the tough stable air regime, now reaching all the way up to Canada. A lead cold front is running up against the high pressure ridge and getting stretched out and weakened. However, an expanding area of low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska appears strong enough to compromise the integrity of the stable air regime and push it back to whence it came: Southern California. The GFS model at San Francisco State University sees the jet beginning to come back by February 15. This Stable Air Regime will soon be over.

The Jet stream remains split out at sea, and strong as it goes over the top of Stable Air Regime 9, which is sending SoCal temperatures over the 90 degree mark today! This pattern is set to persist at least two more days, when the regime will begin to weaken. Check out the picture of the area of high pressure from yesterday:

University of Washington Model forecast for Monday places California in the warmth of a high pressure ridge getting fed subtropical heat by a low pressure trough off shore. On Super Bowl Sunday the warming trend in Super Bowl City will be well on its way. With the 49ers and Raiders not in the game, why not just DVR the game and get outside and enjoy the great outdoors?
