TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Today’s Weather Outlook for the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear, and surrounding Communities.
Yesterday, temperatures around the area ranged from 84*-95*. Humidity levels were a little higher as you could most likely feel with the heat. A couple Thunderstorms developed late in the afternoon over the 29Palms area again, but no effect on the local area was felt from those storms. Today, Monsoonal Moisture will begin to increase as the day wears on. Today, and through the rest of the work week we will have an increasing probability for Thunderstorms in the Big Bear, Green Valley Lake and Running Springs areas. Tuesday through Thursday, more widespread storms will be likely, possibly spreading into the Crestline and Arrowhead areas with a chance in the Valley as well. Precipital moisture should peak Wednesday with the likelihood of rain accompanying any Thunderstorms that do develop. As always, be sure to keep an eye on the weather for changing conditions especially if you are camping or hiking in the back country. Flash Floods are always a possibility. All of this is due to an area of High pressure that is centered over Texas, along with a meso low off of the California Coast. This is a good set up for T/Storms in our area. This set up will remain in place through Wednesday/Thursday. So we could see storms develop at any time during this period, day or night. Some Forecast models show Big Bear getting over and inch of rain by Friday. Lessening, as you head West along the mountain. So for today, temperatures will be from the low 80s in Big Bear and in the mid to upper 80s in Crestline, and Arrowhead. Mostly clear skies this morning with increasing clouds this afternoon in some areas mostly toward Big Bear and maybe Running Springs. Afternoon pop up T/Storms will be possible in the afternoon hours most anywhere through the week. Gusty winds will accompany storms that do develop, other than that, winds will be light and variable across the area. High temperatures tomorrow and Wednesday will be slightly cooler especially if we get significant cloud cover. And that’s the way it is, Monday, July 31st. For those of you who remember Walter Cronkite.
Flash Floods can occur even if it is not raining in your immediate area.
