TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
FOR CHAIN REQUIREMENTS AND ROAD CONDITIONS, CHECK THE “ROAD CONDITIONS” MENU PAGE.
Today high clouds will give the sky some personality. Temperatures today and Wednesday will be in the upper 40s to low 50s around the Crestline, Twin Peaks, and Lake Arrowhead areas. Light NE winds will flow through the area due to an area of high pressure over the Great Basin. I don’t expect to see any more than light winds from 5-10mph. Thursday, winds will turn onshore as a low pressure area approaches the west coast. The energy from this system will stay to our north, all we will se from this is a change in wind direction and cooler temperatures Friday. No rain is expected south of Point Conception. Thursday will be the warmest day of this week with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Friday will be much cooler as onshore flow will bring in cooler temperatures and fog to the coastal areas. For the long range forecast out 5-10 days, there doesn’t look like anything for our area at this time. The storm track looks like it will stay to our north through the first half of December.
As storms pass to our north we will alternate from a SW flow (onshore) to a NE flow (offshore) through the days ahead. If you are wondering, where is El Nino, don’t worry. Usually the El Nino pattern doesn’t set up until late December or January and will last through March or April. It all has to do with the position of the sun and the temperatures across our area. As the overall temperatures drop, the Polar jet stream will also drop to the lower latitudes. The Tropical jet is already in place as seen by the flooding in the South Western States.
High Temperatures today for the CRESTLINE, LAKE ARROWHEAD, and TWIN PEAKS areas will run from 49-55* today, and overnight Lows will run from 29-35*.
Highs today for the BIG BEAR and RUNNING SPRINGS areas will run from 47-53*, and overnight lows will run from 19-34*, respectfully.
