TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..A little chilly this morning, but no more rain or snow to deal with for a few days. Be careful out there driving as temperatures are below freezing in most areas this morning along with Black Ice lurking around in the shady spots or??
..Gusty NE winds are blowing across the local Ridges, and in Waterman Canyon this morning from 10-25mph.
..Today we will have lots of High clouds drifting across the area from the North West. These clouds are at 15000-25000′, so other than obscuring the Sun, they will have little effect on our weather, but may make for good Sunset pictures.
..The Ridge of High pressure that is currently over us will weaken late tonight and into tomorrow morning as a weak trof passes through the upper level flow. This will pass quickly with no rain for our region.
After the trof passes we will be in a kind of zonal flow at the upper levels for the next couple days as an area of High pressure develops over the Pacific, and expands East, toward SoCal. This area of High pressure will be centered between Hawaii and SoCal at 588dm. This will give us nice weather through Friday, or Saturday.
.. Daytime Temperatures will warm up nicely through the period with daytime temperatures above normal for the next several days.
..The next change will come around Saturday when the bottom of a weak Trof will pass through SoCal. This will bring in gusty winds and cooler temperatures for most of the weekend. No rain is expected at this time, but that may change as we get closer to the weekend.
..The Crystal Ball Forecast is for a possibility of rain/snow on or about the 17th, and again on the 20-22nd. At this time, Christmas looks like nice mountain weather for our region with the possibility of fresh snow from the 22nd.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Yesterday’s storm brought a variety of weather to the local area. Wind, Hail, Rain, Snow and a couple claps of Thunder, all as the Warm Tropical air moved out, and was replaced by cold air from a cold front.
..Today we will have clearing skies as the system that brought rain, and light snow to the higher elevations, moves East. Looking at the sat pic for this morning, all of California is clear with the exception of a few high clouds.
..As the Trough moves East today, a Ridge of High pressure will build in to the West. North East winds are blowing this morning across the Ridges and in the Canyons as High pressure builds in the Great Basin. This mornings pressure gradient is running ~3-4mbs offshore from Tonopah to San Diego. These winds will be short lived and should taper off by early this afternoon. Temperatures will be on the rise along with much drier air as the Ridge takes hold.
..Tuesday, will be another nice day with afternoon clouds arriving from the North. These are from another Trough to our North that will pass through the area Wednesday.
..Temperatures will be a little cooler Wednesday with partly cloudy skies. No rain is expected for SoCal from this weak wave passing through the bottom of the Trough to our North.
..Thursday through Saturday, temperatures will warm up nicely as High pressure builds and strengthens over the Eastern Pacific, and SoCal. Friday will see the warmest temperatures of the next five days.
..Looking into the long range “Crystal Ball” late Saturday or Sunday will be our next chance for a Trough of Low pressure to affect our area. At this time, it looks like a fairly weak possibility for rain or snow but that’s how it looks this morning. RC*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Light Rain and or scattered showers will continue through the morning today as a wet Sub Tropical flow aloft slowly moves South, and out of our area.
..Rain Showers will end later today as a Long Wave Trough moves onshore along the West Coast pushing the moisture plume or Weak AR, out of the region. As the Trough approaches the area, we will be at the bottom of this Trough Axis. Gusty SW winds as well as colder air will move into the area which will lower the snow levels locally. Currently the snow level is around the 10k’ level. By this afternoon, the freezing levels will lower to around the 6600′ elevation, so if there is any moisture left, snow will be a possibility for the areas above 6500′. Little accumulation is expected. However, there will be areas of convection as the warm and cold air meet, adding to the chance for Hail, or snow pellets to develop if a Thunderstorm should pass through. So as always, be prepared for the possibility of rapidly changing weather.
..Most of this will move out overnight. Monday we will be back to partly cloudy skies and clearing throughout the day. Temperatures will be warming up as a Ridge of High pressure moves in. North East winds, gusty at times, will develop behind the departing Trough and building High pressure over SoCal.
..Tuesday, and through the rest of the work week ahead, High pressure along with warmer daytime temperatures will be the forecast for our area.
..So for the long range “Crystal Ball” outlook, as it looks this morning, we should be in a fair weather pattern through ~20th of December. An area of Low pressure is forecast to pass through SoCal on the 20-21st, then clear out for Christmas as it looks now. This is a long way out so don’t make plans on this at this time. Just a heads up on what may be ahead. RC*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Today rain will be the main weather feature.
..Sub Tropical moisture will continue to flow across all of SoCal today and tomorrow. This is from a weak Atmospheric River (AR), that is currently located from Hawaii to the West Coast. Precipital Water (PWAT) levels are running ~1.00″ this morning and are expected to richen up to ~1.25-1.50″ later today and overnight before the flow moves South tomorrow afternoon. We will have a couple of atmospheric waves move through the flow tonight and tomorrow morning, this is when the heaviest showers will occur. The Trough axis will move through early Monday morning then clearing will begin.
..So we will continue to have light to moderate rain showers across the area through tomorrow night. Rainfall totals are estimated to be from 1.00″-2.00″ with the highest amounts along the South and or West facing slopes. Due to the source of the flow from across the Central Eastern Pacific, temperatures will continue to be warm, with the freezing levels quite high. Currently the snow levels are running around 10k’. This will be the case through tomorrow afternoon. If there is any moisture around tomorrow night, the freezing levels will lower to around the 6600′ level and Big Bear and Green Valley Lake could, see some light snowfall. Above the 8000′ level 1-3″ of snow will be possible by Monday morning.
..Now for the good news, next week a pattern change is in the works.
..Monday we will begin to clear out as a Ridge of High pressure builds in over SoCal. Temperatures will warm up as dry air moves in from the Great Basin. Tuesday will be another nice day as well.
..Wednesday, another weak wave will pass over SoCal with some daytime cooling expected along with a few clouds. Then, as that Trough moves out, a much stronger Ridge of High pressure will develop along the West Coast bringing in substantial warming through the weekend. Temperatures will be from 5-10* above normal for this time of year by the Friday and through the weekend. RC*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..A beautiful morning to start the day!
..High clouds will start the day today as weak High pressure over SoCal slowly moves East. We should see temperatures slightly warmer today with lots of High clouds streaming in from the South West. Winds will be light and variable as we transition to another wet couple of days ahead.
..By tonight, as warm Moisture streams in from the Southwest, clouds will increase from the higher levels to around 5-6000′. Ridge fog will be possible after dark tonight in some areas.
..By midnight, we will have a chance for rain and or showers, as the bottom of a Trough that is centered to our North, moves Inland across NorCal. Sub Tropical moisture will be advected into the SoCal region from this system to our North, so snow levels will remain quite high for Saturday. Sunday the snow levels will lower but there won’t be much moisture to support any measurable snowfall locally. The higher elevations (above 7000′) may see 1-3″ at best as it looks this morning.
..Sunday the rain will end and we will begin to clear out by the afternoon hours. Temperatures will cool as the Trough moves out and cooler air from the Great Basin rushes in on Monday. Then Tuesday, a Ridge of High pressure will build in behind the departing Trough, and temperatures will begin to rise.
..Next week, as the Ridge of High pressure settles in over SoCal, we will have a five to seven day period of nice weather and warmer days. The Jet stream will move North and the storm track will go with it. By mid week we will be above normal for the daytime temperatures across all of SoCal.
..This next rain event will bring the highest rainfall totals to the South and West facing slopes due to orographic lift. Totals are estimated to be from 1.00-1.50″ for that area. For the rest of the mountain region, rainfall totals are expected to be from .50-1.25″.
..Due to the colder overnight temperatures, BLACK ICE may be on some of our local roads in the normal run off areas. Most, if not all of the local roads have snow berms and run off is likely most anywhere. So be careful driving, or walking for that matter!!! RC*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Yesterday’s nice rain sure melted away the snow. Rainfall amounts varied across the mountain top but mostly ran from 1.50-2.00″. A nice soaking rain.
..Today we will have mostly clear skies as the system from yesterday moves into the Utah region. Clearing skies and a little warm up will be in store for our area.
..A weak Ridge of High pressure will move in behind the departing Trough bringing in a slight warming trend through Friday. It looks like we will have some High clouds on and off today and tomorrow in between systems. Friday will be our warmest day of the next five.
..Late Friday clouds will increase again as another Trough moves across the SoCal region. We will have a pretty good chance for more rain beginning late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Rain on and off will be the forecast for Saturday into Sunday morning. The rain should end by Sunday midday becoming mostly cloudy with occasional showers. This system will have a Subtropical feed so once again rain will be the main feature locally. The freezing level will lower by Sunday to around the between 6400-7200′ level, so depending on how much much moisture is left around we may get some snow at some of the higher elevations. Not much accumulation is expected, but slippery roads will be likely.
..For next week, Monday through Wednesday, we should have a period of nice weather as a Ridge returns to the region. Temperatures will warm up for a few days under High pressure with mostly clear skies.
..More systems are in the future later next week as it looks now, but we’ll keep that on the back burner for now.
..One more thing, clearing skies means the possibility of BLACK ICE on the local roads. In the runoff and shady spots slow down on the mountain roads and watch for ice, snow and possible black ice.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Well, it’s been quite an ordeal, speaking of the last few days. This just show all of us how fast things can change. Going forward, this being the first real storm of the Season, preparation needs to be in the forefront. While it is not easy to be prepared for everything, Candles or led lighting, some sort of heat, and alternative cooking sources will help significantly. This one storm in some areas has cut off all forms of communication to many of us, as well as electricity. Fortunately, there are a lot of helpful people on our mountain that have been helping out many of those in need. A Big Thank you to you all! Now that things are settling down and life is slowly getting back to normal. This is a good time to reflect on the past week, and plan for what may be ahead. This storm was not unlike storms of the past, but in the recent years, we have been in a reprieve from these strong storm systems in SoCal. I have lived in these mountains since 1982. I have seen many storms like this one, and worse, or more severe. This past weeks weather is not an anomaly. A good rule of thumb is to have a weeks worth of provisions on hand at all times for just this type of event.

..Well it’s nice to be back!!
..Today we have more rain as area of Low pressure pulls Sub Tropical moisture into SoCal. Rain rates will increase this morning as the Vort Max moves through the area from 8am-2pm. This is when we can expect the hardest rainfall and a chance for a Thunderstorm a little later today. Snow levels are and will continue to be quite high across the area running from 8000′ this morning, lowering to around 6500′ late today. Most if not all of the moisture will be in the form of rain except the highest elevations. Green Valley lake had a low of 36* @ almost 8k’.
..Orographic lift will play a part in the rain totals locally along the upslope areas, with up to 3.00′ possible there. For the rest of the area, rainfall amounts will vary from 1.5-2.5″. We may see an increase in winds later today as the Vort Max comes through. Currently at Playground W/St winds are running 12-24mph and at Heaps Peak-23-32mph. Most other areas are light and variable from 5-10mph.
..Fog along the Rim can be expected today and into the evening making for poor driving conditions there. Slick roads and debris on the roadway will be possible especially if we do have Thunderstorms later today.
..Increased water runoff will be possible as well due to rapid melting of snow from the warm temperatures and rainfall.
..Thursday we will have lingering showers as we begin to slowly clear out. Partly sunny skies will be the forecast for tomorrow and Friday. Temperatures will be a little warmer as well by 5-7*.
..Saturday we may see another area of Low pressure bring more rain to the area. The models are a little iffy at this point on that one so I will update on that later as things become more clear.
..This morning on the radar loop, there is lightning off of Point Conception near the center of the Low. This will likely move this way later today as the Low moves through.

A good rule of thumb is to have a weeks worth of provisions on hand at all times for just this type of event.

..Today we will have partly cloudy skies as we prepare for rain arriving as early as tonight. Temperatures today will be a little cooler as an area of low pressure moves into the region. Highs today will be from 48-55* across the mountain with overnight lows in the upper 20s in the Big Bear and Green Valley Lake areas, to the upper 30s to mid 40s for Crestline, Arrowhead, Twin Peaks and Rim Forest.

..Wednesday, Rain will begin by the early morning hours lasting throughout the day. Heavy bands of rain will be likely in the morning through the early afternoon hours before tapering off by the evening. As far as the snow levels go, no snow is expected below the 7000′ level unless a Thunderstorm develops locally which will bring the possibility of Hail to much lower elevations.
.. The snow levels are expected to remain above 7000′ through this storm. With rain instead of snow expected, heavy runoff from melting snow along with the rain could cause some flooding. So be aware of that possibility.
..Ridge Fog should develop by this evening so plan a little extra time for driving.
..Thursday and Friday look pretty good at this time. Temperatures will warm up a few degrees during the day with partly cloudy skies.
..The next chance for rain will arrive Sunday as it looks this morning.
Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com


..Due to the power problems with the local weather reporting stations, I don’t have daily temperatures or rain reports.
..So I will share what I have.
Yesterday’s High and Low temperatures were:
Crestline-4.34″ of rain, 18″ of snow at my location, 54/35*, Twn-Pks-23″ snow 53/46*, Rim Forest-57-46*, Lk-Arwhd-54/38*, Rng-Sprgs-27″ snow, 50/45*, Big-Bear-53/27*-18″ snow, GVL-50/32*, San-Berdo-73/50*, Wtrmn-Cyn-66/49*, Ply/Grnd 52/46*, HPS/PK-49/44*.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning. Happy Thanksgiving!
..Overnight more snow fell across the area. In Crestline we received around 2″s at my location on the south side of Lake Gregory.
..Today we will have more snow, and rain below the 4000′ level, as the first of two bands of showers moves through beginning around 8am. A Cold Core Low is just off of the Coast, North of Point Conception as of 7am. This area of Low pressure will slowly track South, then move Inland over SoCal later today. The Winds will be strong and gusty this morning as the front moves through. Heavy Rain, and or heavy snowfall will be the forecast for today for all of SoCal. Thunderstorms, Hail, Waterspouts along the Coastal region, strong, and gusty winds along with heavy snowfall can be expected in the mountains today. There will be from 6-24″ of fresh snow in some local areas today so be prepared! The snow level is expected to lower to around the 3000′ level, or lower by this evening. The most intense part of this storm will be from around 10am-6pm tonight. Travel will be very difficult. To say the least.
..Friday we will continue to have snow showers across the area as the storm slowly winds down and moves out of the area. 1-3″ of snow will be likely for tomorrow.
..Saturday will be partly to mostly cloudy but no more snow or rain is expected.
..Sunday will be partly cloudy as well with slightly warmer temperatures as High pressure tries to build into the region.
..On the Crystal Ball outlook, more rain/snow can be expected mid week next week as more storms line up for our area.
..SNOWFALL AMOUNTS FOR TODAY ARE; Crestline-6-12″, Lake Arrowhead and Rim Forest-6-12″, Twin Peaks-10-18″, Running Springs, Big Bear Green Valley Lake and Arrowbear-12-24″+. Below the 4000′ level, 1-3″ will be possible. Travel on all local roads and HWYs will be impacted by this storm and travel will be very difficult! State and County crews are out plowing the roads so please give them the room they need to clear the roads, and debris as needed.
Today there will be a weak class 1 AR (Atmospheric River) enhancing the rainfall totals locally. PWAT (Precipital Water) will be running around 1.00-1.25″ during the strongest part of the storm today. There will be a lot of convective activity as this system works through. It will be possible to see a Tornado or two in the SoCal region today. *RC
..If you are going out during this time, you need to be prepared for poor driving conditions. You will need tire chains, and blankets in case you are stuck. Visibility will be poor as well. Cars will be stuck all over the place as there are always those who don’t prepare. Do not park in the street as the plows will need to get through ALL of the roads. This is our first Winter storm of the season that will impact travel on all local roads. Be careful and plan ahead! RC*
..Have a good day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather. Thanks for joining me @ lakegregoryweather.com

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

..Good Morning.
..Here we go! This morning as the “Bomb Cyclone” strengthens to our North, we have very strong and gusty winds. As of 7:00am, both of our Weather Stations on the Rim are reporting wind gusts to 62mph from the South along with Fog. Here at the South side of lake Gregory, I have wind gusts from 20-31mph from the South, Fog, and drizzle.
..Today we will have increasing clouds cover along with Ridge Fog as the first Trough moves through the area. Rain, and snow, can be expected across the Mountain today and at times for the next three days. The snow level this morning will begin around the 5500′ level. Rain will begin by 11am with snow above the 5000′ level and a mix of rain and snow below that elevation as the snow levels slowly drop to the 4000′ level by late tonight and tomorrow.
..Snow estimates for today through midnight will be as follows: Crestline-0-2″, Lake Arrowhead-1-3″, Twin Peaks-3-6″, Running Springs and Arrowbear-4-8″, Big Bear and Green Valley Lake, 4-9″. Strong and gusty winds will continue through most of the day today. Blowing snow, tree branches and rain can all be expected throughout the day along with poor driving conditions across all of the mountain areas. Chains will be required later today in some of these areas so be prepared!!
..For Thanksgiving day. Rain and snow will be heavy at times as the second wave comes through the area. Currently, there is a few changes going on with the forecast in that moisture from the south may get entrained in this part of the system. As the Cold Arctic air arrives and the warmer moist southern flow mixes in, Thunderstorms, heavy rain, Hail, and heavy snowfall will be likely along with strong and gusty winds. Traveling will be a nightmare for most of the area as this part of the storm comes through SoCal. Due to the possible changes, the snow levels will be rapidly changing as T-Storms will lower the levels, and the warmer air will raise it at times as well. Snowfall estimates for tomorrow are as follows: Crestline 4-10″, Lake Arrowhead 6-12″, Running Springs and Arrowbear 10-16″ and Big Bear and Green Valley Lake 12-24″.
..Friday will be the coldest day as Arctic air will be upon us. Snow flurries will continue throughout the day as slow clearing takes place. ICY roads and poor driving conditions will exist so please be careful out there. Road crews will be working through the Thanksgiving Holiday trying to clear the roads for safe travel. Do not park in the road or throw snow in the road, be considerate of your neighbors who want to get out. Crews will be cindering the main roads and clearing any debris that has fallen due to the winds and or heavy snow. This will be a good first storm of the season for our forest and hopefully put an end too the Fire Season locally.
..Saturday will be partly cloudy but don’t out away your snow shovels just yet. Next week we may see another series of storms with (AR) Atmospheric River, enhancement through Wednesday.More on that after we weather this storm. *RC
..If you are going out during this time, you need to be prepared for poor driving conditions. You will need tire chains, and blankets in case you are stuck. Visibility will be poor as well.
