TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Clear skies and no weather related problems on the local HWY’s this morning, will make for an easy commute for those of you who have to go to work? For the rest of us, we will enjoy a beautiful day on the mountain with temperatures similar to yesterday’s. Light winds will help to stir things up a little, but not strong enough to push your deck furniture over the side, or your trash cans down the street.
..A slow cooling trend will begin today as High pressure over SoCal begins to weaken. We should still have a very nice weekend weather, but we will see increasing onshore flow will with Fog and low clouds moving into the Valley beginning tomorrow.
..Sunday a Cut Off Low will be getting close to SoCal helping to increase the Onshore flow, as well as thickening the Marine layer with ridge fog possible. Sunday night and Monday, we will have a chance for some rain across the area as the Cut Off Low passes right over SoCal. Thunderstorms may develop but it’s too far out to be sure of that at this time. So enjoy the great mountain weather as it’s going to change soon. We’re not quite done with our Winter Weather just yet but we’re getting close. Soon enough we’ll be using those Air Conditioners instead of the heater.Enjoy!!
.. Have a great day and week ahead. That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. Happy Birthday Cory!!
..There’s not to much going on in the weather dept today or for the next couple of days. High pressure will be the main weather maker through Friday. Warm temperatures and mostly clear skies will be the forecast. Winds will be light and variable with some fog along the immediate Coastal zones. This morning there is light fog along the coast from Santa Barbara, South. Other than that, it’s clear across the whole region.
..The weekend has some changes coming as it looks this morning. A Cut Off Low from the South will move onshore into SoCal beginning Saturday or Sunday depending on what it feels like. You know those Cut Off Lows, they have a mind of their own, anyway, we will see some rain and maybe a few Thunderstorms either Sunday and or Monday from that. Then, beyond that, on the long range outlook, Crystal Ball territory, we may get into a wet pattern on and off through the first week of May.
.. Have a great day and week ahead. That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. It’s time for coffee and the morning weather.
..This morning we have clear skies across the area. Yesterday’s system that came through on time around 4pm, brought light rain and even a report of Hail in the Big Bear area, along with a few claps of Thunder has all moves East. Today and for the rest of the work week, clear skies and warmer temperatures will be the forecast. Gusty NE winds will be in the forecast through tomorrow morning as the Low moves East, and High pressure moves in. Temperatures will reach into the low to mid 70s across the area through Friday.
..Then another change is expected. A cut off Low will move into Southern California from the South. This will begin to affect SoCal, late Friday bringing cooler temperatures and a deeper marine layer that may push all the way to the local coastal slopes by Saturday morning. The Cut Off Low is expected to take a path right over SoCal late in the weekend. Sunday and Monday there will be a chance for light precipitation or drizzle along the Rim and front country.
..So there you go! just enough to finish a cup of Java! Have a great day and week ahead. That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..I hope everyone had a nice Easter Sunday yesterday.
..Today we will start the day with clear skies and no Fog along the Rim so far as of 5am. Temperatures for the area will be warming up today, and through the week, as High pressure builds across the region from the West. However, before we get to excited, there is one last dying swath of energy that will come through late this afternoon. Depending on how much heating we get today, we could see a weak band of showers or a Thunderstorm pass through around 4pm today. The Western edge of the Low pressure that has brought the cooling to the area over the weekend, will pass through late today. This will bring a chance for a shower or at least increasing clouds for the afternoon hours today. This will pass quickly and be gone by later tonight.
..Tuesday through Saturday, clear skies and much warmer temperatures will be the Forecast for all of SoCal except the immediate Coastal areas where fog and low clouds will likely remain through the period helping to keep temperatures there cool. Locally, we will have a North East flow across the area through tuesday then slowly becoming SW through the rest of the work week. Temperatures for the local areas will rise to the upper 60s above the 6300′ level and to the low 70s from the 4000-6000′ level.
..Now for the Crystal Ball Outlook, Next Friday an area of Low pressure will begin to affect the area. Temperatures will begin to cool as the Low approaches with winds increasing from the SW. By Saturday we will have increasing clouds and a chance for a rain shower by Sunday and or Monday. Then for mid week after that, another better chance as it looks this morning for the area as another deeper Low is on the long range outlook. So as we transition to warmer and more Spring or Summer like weather, we will still have a chance for random systems to make their way South to our area. The Dogwood trees have not bloomed yet which is a good sign that we are not done with Winter just yet.
..That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. Happy Easter!
For today, low clouds and fog will hang around most of the day below the 6000′ level. An area of low pressure will move through the Inland portion of SoCal today which will help to keep the fog and clouds in place locally. Temperatures today will be on the cool side with daytime highs in the 50s.
..Tomorrow the area of Low pressure will be located in Arizona. Winds will be from the NE tomorrow as we will be on the back side of the departing Low. However, temperatures will begin their trend upward as High pressure begins to take over.
..By Wednesday High pressure will be our dominate weather feature with temperatures rising to above average for the IE and mountain areas. This trend will last through the work week before another change takes shape for the weekend.
..Next weekend we will have another chance for a shower as a weak area of Low pressure moves into the SoCal region.
..So overall, we will continue this roller coaster type weather pattern as the procession of Highs and Lows continue to pass through SoCal. The longer range Crystal Ball outlook for our area is in favor of a couple of more well defined weather systems for our area during the month of April. So keep those umbrellas handy and maybe the snow shovel not to far away either. Happy Easter.
..That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. Here is today’s Coffee and Weather.
Don’t miss today’s Duck-Derby-Free-Egg-Hunt at Lake Gregory. This will be a fun event for the community, as well as a fundraiser for the Fireworks display on the Fourth of July weekend over the Lake.
..Today’s post is running later than usual. It takes about two hours to put this all together each morning. More, when there is changes in our local weather. Sometimes getting up at 4am just doesn’t work.
First, a WIND ADVISORY will go into effect locally at 2pm today through 6am Sunday.
.. Today we will be much cooler as a couple of Troughs pass through SoCal. As they pass, we will see increasing onshore winds, cooler temperatures, and fog developing along and below the Rim. Drizzle can be expected along the Rim overnight and in the Valley so we may see wet roads for Easter morning Sunrise services across the area. For those braving the elements at the local lakeside services, bring warm clothes as temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 40s. Also there will be a good chance for fog at the local lake levels in the morning tomorrow. By tomorrow afternoon, High pressure will begin to develop across the area ushering out the cool moist air and replacing it with much drier and warmer air through the work week ahead. We will see a change in wind direction becoming NE as the Low passes and is replaced by High pressure.
Have a good day and hopefully the Easter activities won’t be to impacted by our local weather changes. RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. Coffee and Weather.
..For tomorrow’s Lake Gregory Duck Derby, we will have temperatures around 55* with a West breeze around 5-8mph.
..For Sunday’s Sunrise Service at Lake Gregory, temperatures will be running around 40-45* at 7am with Fog or low clouds likely.
..For today Friday, temperatures will be about the same as yesterday’s or maybe a little cooler as an area of Low pressure moves Inland later today. South West winds will pick up later today as well due to the pressure change as the Low passes through. Fog and low clouds are along the Coast this morning and will push Inland tonight and for the next couple of mornings as a second weak Trough moves through the area Saturday and Sunday.
..Morning Drizzle for Saturday and Sunday will be likely along the Rim and across the front range below the 4500-5500′ level both mornings. Some fog will filter into the local area Sunday morning especially at the lake levels for Arrowhead and Gregory during the morning hours. Local daytime high temperatures will be much cooler over the weekend.
..Monday through Thursday of next week, High pressure will move over SoCal bringing back much warmer temperatures and clear skies to the region once again.
On the long range outlook, I don’t see anything as far as rain goes in the near future for our area. We will continue to have a progression of Highs and Lows as is typical for this time of year with Coastal Fog in the mornings pushing to the Valleys at times through the period. El Nino is still a factor in the weather and will continue to be for the next few months. The main impact of El Nino from here on out will be the Hurricane and Monsoon seasons ahead. Only time will tell what that may be? The Midwest has been having a busy Tornado season already. It’s interesting to watch the storms develop with all the technology available to all of us now via the internet. I have a few specialized programs so I can get specific data on these systems as they develop which has been interesting to watch and learn from. My hopes are to take in some of that weather next year and post it here as I go through those areas. We’ll see! Retirement goals. Have a good day and hopefully the Easter activities won’t be to impacted by our local weather changes. RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. Coffee and Weather.
..Today will be another very nice day for the mountains. High pressure will continue to be the dominate weather feature for all of SoCal. Temperatures will be close to what we had yesterday or slightly warmer. The Winds will be turning from the current NE flow, to the SW, or onshore flow, as an area of Low pressure moves closer to SoCal from the SW. We will likely see increasing High clouds today as well.
..Saturday the Marine layer will begin to deepen as the Low moves across the region. Temperatures will begin to cool as onshore flow increases. Fog and low clouds will be possible for Saturday night all the way to the Inland valleys and foothills. By Sunday morning, we could see fog along the Rim as another cooler area of Low pressure arrives from the North. Sunday will have the coolest temperatures with gusty Sw winds as well. So for Easter sunrise services plan on a very cool morning.
..Monday as the work week begins, we will return to a warming trend as High pressure returns to the area.
..That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..After a cloudy and drizzly day yesterday, clearing skies and much warmer temperatures are ahead.
..Currently we have high humidity levels across the Rim but I don’t see any driving issues as far as the weather goes.
..This morning as the System from yesterday moves East, North East winds as always will develop locally behind the departing Low. The next change will be High pressure building to our West that will expand Easterly over the SoCal region during the next couple of days. Temperatures will warm up by 8-12* today through Friday, from yesterday’s Highs locally, along with a developing onshore flow as the pressure builds offshore.
..Then for late Friday, a Sub-Tropical area of Low pressure currently to our South West, will move Inland over SoCal and Northern Baja. This will increase the onshore flow along with increasing clouds, Coastal Fog, and cooler temperatures.
..Saturday and Sunday, much cooler temperatures will move over the region as another area of Low pressure this time from the North will arrive locally. This system could bring a couple of showers to the area along with areas of instability that may produce stronger cells Saturday. As the onshore flow develops over the weekend, increasing clouds, Ridge Fog and much cooler temperatures are expected.
..Then on the long range Crystal Ball outlook, Monday through the work week next week, a warming trend will return through most of the week as it looks this morning.
..So all in all, we will continue to be in a transitional weather pattern through the next 5-10 days.
..That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. WX ALERT
..Clouds have moved into the area this morning along with Fog along the Rim and the front country. Expect foggy driving conditions and wet roads along the Rim and HWYs 18,330, and 38 this morning. Currently the fog is below Waterman Canyon as of 6am.
..A weak Front will pass through the area today bringing a chance for light showers and a few snow flurries to the higher elevations, above the 6500′ level today. This system is falling apart as it moves South, so only scattered showers can be expected today. It does look like late this afternoon around 4pm will be the best chance for a good shower, and maybe a clap of thunder, as the center of the circulation passes overhead. Rainfall totals will be under .30″ today for all areas.
..Wednesday through Friday will have much warmer temperatures as High pressure and warmer air move into the SoCal region. Skies will be clear with variable winds. A Wind Advisory will remain in effect today through 9pm for gusty SW winds.
..So it looks like the Daffodils have made it through without getting buried in snow. In Twin Peaks at Strawberry lodge Rd and HWY 189, there are lots of Daffodils in bloom. Enjoy them but please don’t pick them.
