TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
It’s going to be a beautiful day! The snow is light and fluffy, and when the Sun comes out, it will be picture perfect, tomorrow.
For today, Snow will continue through most of the day with a couple short breaks between waves passing through the area. Several more inches of snow can be expected today as the cold core of the Low moves through around noon today. A Thunderstorm is not out of the possibility later today as the center of the Low moves through. Snow levels will lower to the 3000′ level by tonight, but the main part of the system will have passed by then. Showers will taper off by this afternoon then another wave will move through around 4pm. After that wave passes, we will begin clearing out with a few residual showers lasting through tomorrow morning. Snowfall amounts for today will be from 1-4″ between 3000-4500′, from 4500-6000′ 4-8′ is expected, and from 6000′ and up, 8-14″ will be likely. The greatest amounts will be above the 7000′ level. Gusty winds and Fog at times today with blowing snow will make for a poor driving day. Snowplows will be out so use caution around those vehicles.
..Friday the clouds will begin to clear as the center of the Low will be over Arizona. A few residual showers will be possible in the morning (mostly in Big Bear and Green Valley Lake) but here we should see the sun for most of the day. Temperatures will remain on the cold side as cold air advection from the Great Basin High will give us a NE flow across the Mountains.
..Saturday we will finally begin a warming trend that will last through the first of March. Temperatures at that time will return to normal as we will be in a more Zonal East to West flow aloft. A Ridge of High pressure will develop to our South West Monday and move North over SoCal early next week. This is when we will be back to more normal temperatures with lots of Sun.
On the long range outlook, the next chance for rain will come around the 3rd of March. Till then, enjoy the beautiful snow covered mountains and sunny skies.
