The showers should be over by Thursday morning and Orange County residents can look forward to a dry New Year's Day, according to the National Weather Service. A quarter-inch to a half-inch of rain will douse the region, but winds and cold temperatures are the real elements to watch. The average high historically for this week at John Wayne Airport is about 66 degrees. Thursday's highs will be in the mid-50s. Also, lows are taking a dip as well with temperatures in the upper 30s, compared to the upper 40s average from last year.

T anning salons are picking up business because of it, and some people are getting bummed by too much of it. It's that same old June gloom, when a marine layer descends over the ocean with too much consistency, and so you get the National Weather Service for Orange County and most of Southern California repeating itself: Patchy fog before 11 a.m. Patchy fog expected to last until the early afternoon. Patchy fog after 11 p.m. Sometimes, the fog doesn't let up. Because sunshine is a big draw in California, tourists are sometimes surprised by the gloom.

As I look into my crystal ball for the weekend, I can ditto the weekend weather report from last weekend. Looks like we will have rain tonight and into most of Saturday and then partial clearing — déjà vu. The Pacific swells will build up to 6 feet and taper off to 5 feet by Monday, and the swells off Point Conception to our north are expected to reach more than 20 feet with wind waves Saturday. You need to be careful if you punch outside the harbor’s line of demarcation into the ocean this weekend, especially with winds steepening the swells’ faces to where your boat can fall off the top of the swell into the trough.

Friends and family of the late surfer Gregory Gladstone gathered in his memory during stormy weather at Newport Pier on Saturday. Gladstone died after lifeguards found him unresponsive and floating in big waves off 14th Street on Jan. 23. Fellow surfers called for help after finding his surfboard floating in the water. Authorities are awaiting a toxicology report before making a final determination on what caused Gladstone’s death. A Newport Beach resident since the early 1990s, Gladstone founded the company Gladstone Construction.

For those of you who worked all week hoping for a sun-filled weekend, think again. Cloudy and rainy weather in the area are expected to last the weekend, and sunny skies aren’t forecast until Monday, according to the National Weather Service. On Friday, rain fell lightly, but no major flooding or car accidents were reported as of 2 p.m. The rain is expected to be heaviest early Saturday, possibly causing debris flows and a potential for flooding in washes, low-lying areas, rivers and streams, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast for Saturday calls for only a 20% chance of rain, and Sunday is supposed to be mostly sunny, according to the National Weather Service. But next week is expected to be a smaller scale repeat of this week, with showers rolling in again, although with not as much strength. Over the past few days, strong surf and equally powerful swells combined to erode part of the Balboa Peninsula, prompting lifeguards to move dozens of lifeguard towers back by 20 feet, said Jon Mitchell, a lifeguard captain.
