TODAY’S LATEST SATELLITE PICTURES:


TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Good Morning.
Today’s outlook for the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Twin Peaks, Running Springs and Big Bear areas.
Today we start the day with a HIGH WIND WARNING for the San Bernardino Mountains and Inland Empire area. Strong and gusty North East winds will be likely especially for the Mountain areas through Saturday morning. Winds from 10-25mph for most areas, and from 20-45mph+ in the wind prone areas can be expected today through Saturday morning. This is due to an area of building low pressure (999mb) centered near the four corners area backing up to the Eastern side of the Sierras. Along with an area of high pressure (1028mb) over the Eastern Pacific. We are in the middle of the two pressure zones which will cause a strong NE flow across our area. Along the immediate coastal areas, a SW flow this morning will turn to offshore later today. The persistent high clouds we have had for the last few days will finally move east as the high pressure over the Pacific slowly expands over SoCal. Temperatures today will still remain a little cool with highs in the low to mid 60s. For the weekends temperatures, highs in the mid 60s can be expected with overnight lows in the upper 30s to low 40s for most areas. On the longer range outlook, starting Monday, as high pressure builds across SoCal, temperatures will be on the rise as well. For the work week ahead, temperatures will be in the 80s to 90s in the Inland areas and in the upper 70s to low 80s in the mountains.
As we leave the Winter behind, dryer weather conditions will develop across the local area. However, we still have cool mornings and evenings as we begin the transition. When we have gusty NE winds, the warmth of a fire in our fireplace is inviting, but dangerous sparks can be blown into the vegetation including pine needles, and start a fire. It is a good plan to avoid using your fireplace or any other outdoor fire during windy conditions. Have a good weekend. RC
