30-Day Weather Outlook for June 12, 2017, to July 12, 2017

  • Jun 13, 2017

Summary- The occurrence of active westerlies will decrease, and strong warm upper high pressure will build from the Pacific into most of Calif. A pool of unusually cold water has retreated further west of Calif, and its influence is diminished. A pool of unusually cold water remains in the tropical region S thru WSW of southern Baja Calif.
