TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..Fog and clouds have moved in overnight below the 6500′ level. Wet roads and gusty winds will make traveling on the local roads a little challenging today.
..Today an area of Low pressure will slide South along the Coast of California. Currently as of 7:00am, the center of the Low is a couple hundred miles off of Monterey. There is some Lightning on the Western edge of the center of the Low.
..As the Low gets closer to our area, we will see an increase in rain showers and or snow showers. The Snow levels will be around the 6500′ level this morning, then lowering as the Front moves through to around the 3500′ level by late tonight. The center of the Low will track offshore so we will again be on the outer fringes of the rain bands. Most of the rain will stay near the Coast and offshore, then move Inland over Northern Baja. After the Low moves Inland over Baja, wrap around moisture will move into our area late tonight and into tomorrow morning. This is when we will have a shot at a few localized Thunderstorms with Hail and lowering snow levels. Gusty winds can be expected along with Fog along the Rim and on the front side of the mountain. So plan a little extra time tomorrow morning if you are driving around or off the hill.
..Snow accumulations will be from 0-1″ below the 4500′ level, from 4500-5500′ 1-2″ and from 5500-7000′ 2-5″ will be possible. If Thunderstorms do develop, we could see these figures increase in the affected areas as well as lower elevation snow accumulations.
..Monday afternoon all of this will begin to clear out with nice weather returning for the rest of the work week ahead. More showers will be possible late in the week.
..Have a good day, and thanks for joining me at lakegregoryweather.com. RC*
