Following a dry and warm first half of February in California, a shift in the weather pattern will bring the return of rain, mountain snow and cooler conditions Wednesday into Thursday.
“The long stretch of dry and unseasonably warm weather California has been experiencing will change [this week],” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Ken Clark said.
Southern California has experienced the highest temperatures during this stretch. San Diego and Los Angeles have both reached high temperatures of 5-20 degrees above normal for most of the month.
So far this month, the storm track has focused on the Pacific Northwest, allowing California to bask under sunshine and warmth.
