It’s very rare for California to be on the top of the PWI list due to its varied terrain and climates. While Southern Califorina may score as high as a perfect 10, the Sierra Neveada Mountains often come in so much lower that they drag down the mean for the state. But on Monday, the mean for the nation is so low (4.8) that California has it’s chance to be #1. I’m forecasting only 57 grid squares of perfect weather tomorrow, all of which will be in Southern California. Several towns lie in the perfect 10 areas in California including: Buellton, Santa Paula, Mission Viejo, Bonsall, Winchester, and Hemet.
A nasty cold front from Portland, Maine to Houston, Texas will lead to nothing better than PWI 5’s over a wide portion of the Eastern US.
