The recent spate of unseasonably cloudy, cool and wet conditions in the San Fernando Valley will give way to warmer, clearer days this week, forecasters say. "We're looking at a return to normal-type temperatures," said Gary Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Ryan predicted mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the mid-80s to low 90s and lows in the upper 50s to low 60s throughout the week. Those numbers match the normals for this time of year, he said.

Ask a Southern Californian, "How's the weather?" and you're likely to get a variety of responses. It might be blustery in the San Fernando Valley, sunny and warm at the coast, raining in the Santa Monica Mountains and snowing in the San Gabriels. All at the same time. The reason for this is the existence of microclimates within the state's larger climatic zones.

A 2 1/2-year effort to widen and improve the Ventura Freeway--one of the nation's busiest--was running on schedule until about December, when nature put a chill on the project. Completion of the $40-million project was expected in April but will be delayed until June or July because nighttime temperatures have been too cold for workers to place a final layer of asphalt on a section of freeway.

Again, no surprises are in store for the San Fernando Valley's weather this week, according to meteorologists. Temperatures will be normal for this time of year, ranging from the mid-90s to 100 today through Friday, said Bill Hoffer at the National Weather Service. "It's a big old fat high-pressure system" hovering over the area, Hoffer said--the norm for the area in July. Skies will be mostly clear throughout the week, after some variable high clouds today.

San Fernando Valley weather will be cooling off slowly this week after a warm weekend, weather forecasters said Sunday, caused by unseasonable Santa Ana winds. "Usually we don't get that in the spring," said Dennis Tussey, a spokesman for the National Weather Service in Oxnard. The Santa Anas--which are warm, dry winds blowing from inland areas--are more likely in late summer and autumn.

Isolated thunderstorms may strike the hills around the San Fernando Valley tonight, weather forecasters said. But they will be limited if they do occur. "We don't expect the thunderstorms to go rolling through the Valley," said Rob Krohn, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Thunderstorms are more likely in July and August, Krohn said. However, a low-pressure system centered over Yuma, Ariz., is drawing moisture from the Pacific Ocean, he said.

How's the weather? It depends on whom you ask. Satellite photos may show a Pacific Northwest cold front. Doppler radar can pick up a storm 150 miles away. And to get the San Fernando Valley weather picture, a handful of ground stations and 30 to 40 sets of eyeballs can tell you how the weather is from ground level. The ground stations are in Woodland Hills and at Burbank and Van Nuys airports, and the eyeballs belong to the National Weather Service's army of weather spotters.

It wasn't so long ago that administrators at Cal State Northridge worried whether there would be enough students to fill up classes on their quake-ravaged campus. Enrollment plummeted following the Northridge temblor; many courses had to be held in trailers. But to be at CSUN on Monday, the first day of the fall semester, was to realize how much things have changed.

Saturday's rainstorm didn't pack the wallop predicted, but Southern California skiers and winter resorts, suffering through one of the warmest and driest seasons in years, rejoiced over the first significant snowfall to blanket local mountains. Several inches of fresh powder were reported in forest towns from Wrightwood to Big Bear, and more is expected in the days ahead as a series of Pacific storms rolls over the region. "We're in the game now.
