TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Clear skies with warm temperatures will again be the main weather feature today. We will have light and variable winds today alternating from the NE to the SW at 2-6mph. As SoCal continues to be in a very stable weather pattern, things are about to change. A return visit from a cut-off LOW that is currently off of Baja California, will track toward our area around mid week. This will again bring a chance for showers and or Thunder Storms to the local area from Wednesday through Saturday of the week ahead. Cut-off LOWs are difficult to forecast as they do not have a driving force such as the jet stream for guidance. As this cut-off Low bobbles around for the next two days, a trough of Low pressure will develop to our North. As this trough drops south, the cut-off low will be picked up by the jet stream and move onshore bringing a chance of rain and or T/S’s to our area from Wednesday through Saturday. There is a chance that the trough from the North and the cut-off low will merge Saturday over our area. If that happens, we could have a good rain on Sunday.
For the long range Forecast, there will be several chances for rain across SoCal from now through the end of the month. The Storm track is slowly dropping South, as it does we will see an increased chance for storms over the SoCal area. El Nino is in full swing and will likely begin to affect the SoCal Winter rainy season within the next month or so. Typically, we receive most of our storms and rainfall from December through March. These storms will be the ones most affected by El Nino. RC
High Temperatures today for the CRESTLINE, LAKE ARROWHEAD, and TWIN PEAKS areas will run from 80-83* today, and overnight Lows will run from 57-62*.

I have posted an article on the “EL NINO” page of this website written by David Swain and a link to his web site, WEATHER WEST. If you are interested in the upcoming EL NINO, its worth reading.
