TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
Today the Marine layer is just into the Inland Valley but very thin. It’s almost more of a haze at this point this morning.
..We will continue to have pretty much the same Weather pattern through early next week with warm temperatures today then cooling Thursday through Saturday under a weak Trough. Then for Sunday through Tuesday a more zonal flow in the upper atmosphere with a weak area of High pressure nudging in from the West again. So over all temperatures will remain in the mid 70s to mid 80s through the period.
..Then a pattern change is starting to work up. July officially is the start of the Monsoon Season for Southwest. As it looks this morning, we will see the first signs of this toward the end of next week as a Sub-Tropical area of High pressure sets up over Western Mexico along with another area of High pressure to our Northwest over the Pacific. Also, it looks like the first Tropical storm of the season will move up from the Tropics around the 28th which will likely push moisture into the South West in the form of Thunderstorms into the region. So if you don’t like our nice cool weather,it’s going to change very soon. As the Monsoonal flow moves into the West, humidity and higher temperature will follow. Enjoy!
..As we head into Fire Season please use caution in all mountain areas. Also I will begin today posting the Fire Danger levels on the bottom of this page also check the wx alerts page for an in depth look at the local fire weather..(Website)
..Have a good day and enjoy the great Mountain weather.*RC


Yesterday’s High and Low temperatures were:
Crestline-83/56*, Twin Peaks-78/60*, Lk Arrowhead-87/63*, Running Springs-77/60*, Big Bear-76/43*, GVL-79/50*, San Berdo-87/57*, Wtrmn Cyn-86/53*.



..On the main page of the website, www.lakegregoryweather.com I have added two live webcam views, one of Lake Gregory pointing North, and the other facing Southeast toward Waterman canyon. These are very helpful for the drive up and down the hill. If the camera view is gray, that means it’s foggy.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Another beautiful day in the mountains today! Fog is into the lower coastal slopes again this morning but will burn off by noon. The higher ridges this morning have a NE wind indicating an upper level pressure change. Temperatures today will be in the low to mid 70s for most areas today.
..For Tuesday and Wednesday, an upper level area of High pressure over the Eastern Pacific will expand into the Pac-NW today, then slowly moving over SoCal. This will bring in a slight warmup through Wednesday before weakening late Wednesday. The Marine layer will be more shallow for these days and temperatures in the Valley will warm up into the mid to upper 80s.
..Thursday through Saturday, we will have a return of an upper level Trough that will deepen the Marine layer and a return of gusty SW winds. Temperatures will cool again due to onshore flow through Saturday.
..We will continue to be in a Troughy pattern through next week as it looks now. So I don’t see any heat waves, or rain, in our near future.
..That’s it for now. Have a nice day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather.
..As we head into Fire Season please use caution in all mountain areas. Also I will begin today posting the Fire Danger levels on the bottom of this page also check the wx alerts page for an in depth look at the local fire weather..(Website)

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NANNY!!
Hope all you Fathers out there had a nice day yesterday!
..Today we have a fairly deep Marine layer up against the bottom of the hill. Around 2700’deep. Above that, we have clear skies. Today’s temperatures will be a little cooler as an upper level Trough passes over SoCal. Gusty winds can be expected this afternoon and early evening. There is a chance for some cumulus clouds to build up over the local Ridges as the Trough passes through the area. Maybe even a T-Storm in the interior areas along the Desert and mountain slopes this afternoon.
..Tuesday and Wednesday, an area of High pressure now over the Eastern Pacific at 594dm, will expand over SoCal bringing in slightly warmer temperatures and a weakening of the Marine layers influence to the inland areas. This will be short lived as another Trough will push through the West for Thursday and Friday.
..Thursday a 554dm Trough of Low pressure will begin to affect SoCal as it moves through the West. We will be under this trough through Saturday before it moves East. Cooler Temperatures along with a deepening Marine layer once again will be the Forecast through Saturday. Sunday looks a little warmer but another Trough is in store for Monday and Tuesday. So basically, we will be in a continues Troughing pattern with weak High pressure moving in from time to time. Temperatures will remain cool with afternoon and evening gusty winds through the period.
..That’s it for now. Have a nice day, and enjoy the nice mountain weather.
..As we head into Fire Season please use caution in all mountain areas. Also I will begin today posting the Fire Danger levels on the bottom of this page.(Website)

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.Happy Fathers Day!
..Our weather pattern is in full June mode. We will continue to have morning Stratus in the Valley each day with clear skies above the ~2500′ level. Sw winds will be gusty in the afternoon hours into the evening with high clouds at times.
..This morning the Marine layer is at the lower elevations. An upper level Trough of Low pressure will be our main weather maker for the next five days in SoCal. Temperatures will be a little cooler than Saturday’s by a few degrees and will remain that way through Wednesday. The Marine layer below may deepen at times, but will clear out by noon each day. In the upper atmosphere from 8,000′ to 30,000′ the moisture levels are fairly low however we will have a couple weak waves of energy pass through the upper level flow so we may see some towering cumulus clouds develop during the peak heating hours in the late afternoon above the 7000′ level(LCL).
..This will be the forecast through Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday, a Pacific Ridge of High pressure now to our North West, will expand East over most of SoCal. This will bring in a warming trend mid week next week. However, by Friday we will return to SoCal Troughing once again with cooling and a deepening Marine layer returning at that time.
..That’s it for now. Have a nice weekend and enjoy the nice mountain weather.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
So far this morning we have clear skies in the mountains with the Marine layer up to the top of upper Waterman canyon. Not much change in our weather for today or the next five days as it looks from the maps this morning. We will be under a transitory Ridge today that will move East tonight with a Trough of low pressure returning to the area for the next few days. The main area of Low pressure will remain to our North with a couple waves passing through the flow for SoCal. This will keep the Marine layer in place through the period with gusty SW winds for the afternoon and evening hours.
..Sunday we may see a few cumulus clouds building over the ridges as a wave works through the area. Thunderstorms will be likely if you are heading to the Sierras from the Mammoth Lakes area and North on 395.
..Temperatures will remain seasonal for the next few days with late night and morning fog in the Valleys and along the Coastal zones.
..Mid week next week the Pacific High now centered West of NorCal will nudge inland over SoCal. This will bring a couple of warmer days mid week. Then another Trough will move through the West with cooler temperatures returning late in the week.
..That’s about it for now. Have a nice weekend and enjoy the nice mountain weather.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
Today we have clear skies above the 2500′ level with fog below that in the Valley. Winds are light and variable but will likely pick up later today becoming gusty in the wind prone areas. Temperatures today will be a little below normal with highs in the upper 60 to low 70s across the area.
..An upper level Trough of Low pressure will move through SoCal today keeping temps cool and helping to deepen the Marine layer. Fog and low clouds (Stratus) will push into the IE each morning, typical for June, filling the Valley to around the 2500′ level. Above that skies will remain mostly clear. High clouds will move into the area later this weekend but no rain or moisture is in our forecast window.
..Saturday a weak Ridge of High pressure will move through the area as a result we will see a few degrees of warming locally. Then another weak Wave will pass through for Monday and Tuesday with some cooling again across the area. Gusty winds will remain in the forecast through the period as the Troughs and Ridges pass through the West.
..By the middle of next week, it looks like a Pacific High will move over SoCal and the West Coast. This will bring in warmer temperatures for the latter part of the work week ahead.
..On another note, a fire on the back side of HWY 18 late yesterday has burned around 20 acres so far as best as I can tell. Fire crews are and have been on this fire all night. HWY 18 to Lucerne Valley is scheduled to reopen this morning by around 8am today. Check with “Mountain Reporter.com” for additional information.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
The onshore flow is picking up across the region as the pressure gradient lowers in the Great Basin and rises along the coast. The Marine layer has pushed all the way to the bottom of the hill this morning and to ~1200’AGL.
.A weak Trough of Low pressure will move through the West today and Friday bringing in much cooler temperatures with it. Today’s high temperatures will run from 7-14* cooler than yesterday. Friday will be about the same with gusty SW winds at times. The Marine layer will likely deepen for tomorrow morning and remain with us through early next week.
..Saturday temperatures will warm slightly as a transitory Ridge moves through the area. This will be again followed by another weak wave of lower pressure on Sunday and Monday that will continue the general cool trend with night and morning fog and low clouds through mid week next week.
..Wednesday of next week, a Pacific High pressure air mass will move over the West bringing with it a warming trend that will last for several days.
..That’s about it for today. A nice break from the heat for a few days before it returns mid week next week.
..Have a good day and enjoy the great Mountain weather.*RC

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Looks like we have weathered our first real heat wave of this Summer. Things will begin to cool slightly today then much more for Thursday then through the weekend.
The Sub Tropical High that has brought us the heat wave will begin to weaken later today. A Long wave Trough will move in from the North tomorrow spreading cooler temperatures across the whole Western part of the Country.
..Then another wave in the trough will pass through Friday helping to further deepen the Marine layer along with more cooling of daytime temperatures.
..This will help push the Marine layer further Inland, so we can expect to see Fog along the front side of the mountain Friday and Saturday mornings. For the local area we will continue to have clear skies with cooler temperatures and gusty winds at times through the weekend. Daytime temperature should be in the low to mid 70s by Friday and through the next five days.

Good Morning.
..Yesterday was HOT! I was down the hill in Redlands at 4pm and it was 107*. This morning, Palm Springs is 103* at 6am!
..Today will be another HOT day around the SoCal region as High pressure remains in control of our weather. Temperatures will be very close to yesterday’s. We will have some high clouds again today with light and variable winds throughout the day. A HEAT ADVISORY will be in effect for the Inland areas today.
..Wednesday, things will begin to change as the High over SoCal will begin to break down allowing for some interior cooling. Coastal fog and low clouds will move further Inland on a sea breeze that will make it to the IE by Thursday morning. Further deepening of the Marine layer for Thursday and Friday will occur as a weak Trough of Low pressure moves through the West. Temperatures will lower by as much as 10-20* in some of the hotter areas by Friday. YEAH! The weekend locally will be nice with very comfortable temperatures. We may see the Marine layer up against the lower elevations Friday and Saturday morning but will burn off bt late morning.
..Now is the time to put out shade and extra water for your outdoor pets as they will need it over the next few days.
