May 2019 will have a mixed temperature profile with key dates having excellent weather and the first major heatwave in the region so for details read on …
The beginning of May we will have a slight bump in temperatures
Once we hit the second half of May is when many of you probably have camping trips scheduled, surrounding Memorial Day Weekend. This looks great right now as I am seeing ridging developing and with that will come warmer than average temperatures along with dry weather. This would be a typical Southern California second half of May so enjoy the outdoors.
For the entire forecast though, will go with average temperatures for the region as a whole, but above average for the metros and coast for details to below for the mountains and deserts. The coldest period with precipitation will be the first half and the warmest and driest the second half. We will have at least 1 or 2 heatwaves for the second half and one of them could be a strong one, marking the first High Heat Warning product I’ll need to issue for the region.
