CP, on the other hand, has not produced a super bloom as of yet, temps are pushing the upper 70's this week, and then a low front moves in lowering temps and bringing rain Mon-Tue, possible dropping a 1.5". If higher temps prevail afterward, it will bring out the caterpillars, which will eat some of the wildflowers and when the temps go even higher it will finish off the remaining wildflowers. The last super bloom in CP was also 2005, in the last week of March, this round of rain could help, but it may be to late for it to help with a super bloom in CP, at least for this year, we will see what the next week brings us.
A cooling trend will begin over the weekend as high pressure departs to the east and a trough hits the west coast. Initially this won`t mean much for our area other than temps returning to normal as well as increasing night and morning low clouds and fog. However, by Monday night and Tuesday the jet stream will drop far enough south to bring the next system into central and southern California. While there could be some rain across NW SLO county as early as noon Monday, it won`t likely arrive until Monday night or early Tuesday in LA County. Models in pretty good agreement in general that it will rain, just not very certain on timing or amounts. Will bump up pops a category but still keep them fairly conservative for now. The GFS amounts seem a bit inflated, though it is tapping into some pretty high pwats to our southwest, around 1.5", so there is the potential for some heavier rain with this next system.
