TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Today is traditionally considered the first day of summer, also called Summer Solstice, and is the longest day and shortest night in the Northern Hemisphere.
That is as exciting as it will get for awhile. High pressure will continue to be the main weather feature for all of SoCal and the West. The 250mb and 500mb Jetstream show little change for the near term and long range outlooks. An area of low pressure will move through the Northern Great Basin over the weekend which will bring a brief reprieve in daytime high temperatures locally. But the Dominate High pressure to our South will regain strength the first part of next week with the return of very warm daytime temperatures. To our south the hurricane production has been squelched as well as along the gulf States and Eastern Seaboard. So overall we will be in a zonal flow across the southern part of the country with little change. Temperatures for the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, and Twin Peaks areas will have daytime highs today from 84-88*. Big Bear, Running Springs, and Green Valley Lake. will have daytime highs today from 80 85*, San Bernardino will see highs today from 95-100*. All areas will have clear skies with light and variable winds from 0-10 mph. On another note, the latest El Nino forecast is out and I will be posting the highlights of that report on the www.lakegregoryweather.com/WX ALERTS/TRENDS page of the website later today along with some other interesting information. So that’s it for now. Have a great day and enjoy the first day of summer. RC
Average local temps for today are: 78*-50* – MAX-92*(1961)-MIN-36*(1995).
Temperatures around the area for Today and overnight:
Crestline, Twin Peaks, and Lake Arrowhead: 84-89*/52-59*
Running Springs, GVL, and Big Bear: 80-86*/43-54*
San Bernardino: 95-100*/63-65*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

As we close out Spring, and head into Summer, High pressure over the West, continues to be the main weather feature for today, and for the next several days to come. Temperatures will be 5-10* above normal for this time of year. Highs for the Crestline and Lake Arrowhead areas are expected to be from 82-86* today and Thursday. Running Springs, Green Valley Lake, and Big Bear, will have daytime highs from 77-84* and in San Bernardino, daytime highs are expected to be close to 100* through Friday. The weekend will bring some relief as the area of High pressure over the West will weaken slightly helping to bring daytime temperatures down by around 5*. The coastal areas will be much cooler with low clouds and fog along the immediate coastline this weekend. Clear skies and variable winds will make for nice days through the weekend for all Inland areas. On the Tropical outlook, a disturbance is beginning to form off of Guatemala but it doesn’t look like it will have any effect on our weather here as far as increasing the Monsoonal flow.
Have a good day and enjoy the great mountain weather. RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Yesterday temperatures across the Mountain ran in the low to mid 70s for most locations. Early morning fog quickly cleared out leaving a nice day for the Inland region. Temperatures in the Valley ran around 81* yesterday. Today, we will begin a warm up as High pressure strengthens over SoCal. Skies will remain clear for the next several days for the Inland and Mountain areas with gusty winds at times. Mountain temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s today with mid 80* temperatures expected through the rest of the work week ahead. At this time, no Thunder Storms are in the forecast as Tropical Moisture will remain far to the south. Monsoon Season began the 15th of June officially, but is currently quiet. The Hurricane center has nothing to report for the Eastern Pacific or the Gulf Region, and nothing is expected for the next five days. On the longer range outlook, temperatures should cool by a few degrees for the weekend, but a warm up is expected to return for early next week.
Have a good day and enjoy the great mountain weather. RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

This morning we have some fog along the front side of the Mountain. However, it is already beginning to clear out and should be gone by mid morning. Currently, the city lights are barely visible at times so I don’t expect this to be much of a problem for the morning commute. The area of Low pressure that has brought cool temperatures yesterday and this morning, is on it’s way out. That will be replaced by a Ridge of High pressure that will bring in rapid warming, lasting through the end of the work week. Daytime high temperatures will increase by 15-20* by Thursday across the Mountain, ending up with highs in the mid to upper 80s by Thursday. At this time there is no sign of Tropical moisture entering the SoCal region so humidity levels should remain normal for this time of year. Any Fog will stay along the Coast for the rest of the work week ahead after this morning. San Bernardino will see daytime high temperatures peaking around 95-98* by Thursday. On the Tropical Storm forecast, there is nothing in the Eastern Pacific at this time and nothing is expected during the next five days. Along the gulf region, a weak Tropical Storm will move onshore along the Eastern side of Texas bringing rain and possibly some flooding there. Clear skies and variable winds will be in the forecast for the next several days. Other than the heat, no other changes are expected. Have a good day and enjoy the great mountain weather. RC

Temperatures around the area for Today and overnight:
Average temps for today are- 77*-49* MAX-88*-MIN-34*
Crestline, Twin Peaks, and Lake Arrowhead: 66-72*/48-54* Average temps for today are- 77*-49*

Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NANNY!
This morning we are back in the fog again. Currently as of 6am, we have fog from around 2500′ to 5400′ along the Rim. Lake Arrowhead, Crestline, Rim Forest, and parts of Running Springs all have some fog currently. Check the webcams on the website for live weather conditions across the mountain. Drizzle can be expected on the local roads where there is fog. Today we should see some clearing by late this morning as the area of low pressure responsible for the moist weather slowly lifts out of the area. Onshore flow will remain fairly strong as there is a pressure gradient of ~8mbs from San Diego (1012.8)to Daggett (1005.0) this morning. Some areas will have gusty SW winds over the next couple of days especially along and near the ridges as the low moves out. Temperatures today will be cool with highs expected to be from 55-62* locally, and from 60-65* in Big Bear where the skies will be clear today. Monday will also be a cool day with temperatures a little warmer with highs in the 65-72* range across the mountain. The Marine layer should remain below 3500′ in the morning. Tuesday through Saturday, temperatures will warm up substantially as a 596dm High moves over the area. The Marine layer will retreat back to the Coast. Clear skies will be the forecast for the work week ahead. At this time, there doesn’t appear to be any Monsoonal Moisture for SoCal through the week ahead. So temperatures will be on the rise, but the humidity levels should remain comfortable. Carlotta, off of Mexico still a Tropical Storm will not make Hurricane status and will dissipate over the next couple of days. For the Gulf of Mexico, a Tropical Disturbance will move into the Western Gulf region over the next couple of days as a Tropical Storm as well.
Have a good day! RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Yesterday we had a lot of cloud cover especially during the afternoon hours as the Low moved through. Although no rain or T-Storms were reported locally, there were a few lightning strikes south of San Diego in Northern Mexico. This morning the Tropical air mass has moved East and out of our area. However, another area of Low pressure will slide south over the west causing the Marine layer to deepen and pushing into the IE. Currently, there is fog along the front of the mountain to the ~2500′ level. As the Trough Axis moves through SoCal, we will see gusty South West winds from 5-20mph at times through Sunday night. This area of Low pressure will bottom out at 564dm by Sunday morning before moving to the North East. This will help to deepen the Marine layer with fog topping out at ~4500′ Sunday morning. Temperatures will remain quite cool today through Monday, with daytime highs expected to be from 58-66* locally. San Bernardino will also be much cooler with highs expected to be from 75-78* through the same period. On the longer range outlook, Tuesday through the work week ahead, Tropical High pressure will develop and build in from the south into SoCal. This will bring a warming trend as the High tops out at 594dm by Thursday. This area of High pressure will cover most all of the southern half of the U.S. next week. Fortunately, we will continue to have a SW flow across SoCal that will help to keep temperatures somewhat in check. Coastal fog will be likely through the week ahead. For the Inland areas, temperatures will return to above normal for this time of year. This doesn’t look like a major heat wave, just above normal temperatures by 5-8 degrees.
Have a good day! RC

Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

This morning we have an upper level area of Low pressure off of the SoCal coast. This will continue to draw mid and upper level clouds across the SoCal region today. The LCL today will be around the 7k’ level. There will be a chance for dry lightning and or an occasional shower this afternoon as CAPE will peak close to 1100j/kg which is a low to medium value for Thunderstorm activity. The area of Low pressure that is to our West this morning will move East through SoCal this afternoon. This is when we will have our best chance for a T-Storm and also have the greatest cloud cover. Temperatures today will be in the mid 70s across the area with lots of cloud cover If you were up to see the Sunrise, it was pretty nice with all of the upper level clouds. If we get into a T-Storm activity period later today I will update and post radar images on my FB page. Gotta go to work, running late.
Have a good day! RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Once Hurricane BUD is now a Tropical disturbance moving into the Gulf of California near Cabo. The moisture from BUD will continue to spread North into Arizona and the far Eastern reaches of SoCal today through Friday evening. The only affects locally will be an increase in upper level clouds at around the 7-10,000 foot level and higher. However, an upper level area of Low pressure is spinning offshore this morning. This will try to entrain some of Bud’s moisture into the upper atmosphere over the SoCal mountains of Riverside, San Diego, and San Bernardino mountain areas. If so, we could see some dry lightning and possibly a shower in the higher elevations today and tomorrow locally. This will also be the beginning of a cooling trend as an area of Low pressure to our North will develop into a trough by Sunday over the West. As the trough approaches the area, it will push the Tropical Moisture East along with the warmer air. Fog and low clouds will return to the coastal areas and the Inland Valleys Saturday night. By Sunday morning we should Fog up to the 4000′ level. Temperatures today will be a few degrees cooler than Wednesdays where highs around the area ran from the upper 70s to low 80s. Winds today will be light and variable with up to a 30% cloud cover at times through tomorrow.
Don’t forget about your pets as they need shade, and plenty of water, to get through the day. That’s it for now. Have a good day! RC

Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Today should be the last day of the heat wave as High pressure over the lower mid west will begin to weaken later today. High temperatures today will be very close to yesterday (80-85*). Tomorrow we should see close to 5* of cooling. Moisture from the remnants of BUD will move North bringing upper level clouds to the area. Thursday pm into Friday there will be a chance for Thunderstorms over the Desert areas to the Colorado River, and East from there. Here we may see Towering Cumulus clouds along with weak chance for a T-Storm near the Big Bear, and Green Valley Lake areas. Lake Arrowhead, and Crestline will not have much chance as it looks this morning. All of this will move East by Saturday afternoon and cooling will continue into the weekend. Fog and low clouds will move into the IE by Sunday morning as a trough of Low pressure slides south toward SoCal. For Sunday through mid week next week, we will be under the influence of a trough of Low pressure so we should remain seasonal temperature wise.
Don’t forget about your pets as they need shade, and plenty of water, to get through the day. That’s it for now. Have a good day! RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:



Today’s Forecast for Crestline, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains:
Good Morning.

Today will be another warm day across the area as High pressure centered in New Mexico strengthens to 592dm. High surf along the Coast will last one more day before returning to normal. Off of the coast of Mexico, south of Baja, Hurricane BUD is now at CAT4 status. The current heat wave in SoCal will last through Wednesday before we see any relief. This morning the Marine layer is offshore and should remain there except for a few areas along the San Diego coastal region. Temperatures today will be in the 80s for the Mountains, and in the upper 90s in the Valley. This morning the humidity levels locally are pretty high (currently 70% at my location) so there may be a little extra discomfort today. Light and variable winds along with clear skies will be the forecast for today and Wednesday. Thursday we will begin to cool down as the High over New Mexico begins to break down. Friday and Saturday, we may see moisture from BUD flow into the SoCal Deserts and AZ. Mid and upper level moisture will be on the increase Thursday through Sunday with high clouds developing along the Ridges. A Thunderstorm will be possible Friday and Saturday for Big Bear and the Desert areas of SoCal. Here we will be on the West edge of the moisture from BUD. With a little shift in the winds, we may see a better chance of storms over the weekend. Yesterday’s high temperatures were, 84* in Crestline, 80* in Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs, 79* in Big Bear and 95* in San Bernardino. Today will be very close to the same. Don’t forget about your pets as the first heat wave arrives to the area. They need shade and plenty of water to get through the day. That’s it for now. Have a good day! RC
