TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
Fog has moved into the IE this morning and is currently up to around the 2500′ level. This will slowly clear out later this morning as temperatures rise.
..An area of Low pressure to our North, with a trailing Trough over SoCal, will slowly move East today. This will open the door for an area of High pressure now over the Southern Rockies to expand West toward SoCal in the coming days. As the High expands, temperatures will rise locally with less morning fog in the Valley and the IE. The mountains will continue to have mostly clear skies except for occasional high clouds and gusty afternoon winds through Wednesday.
..Temperatures should peak around Friday or Saturday with highs in the mid 80s for the mountains and in the upper 90s in the Valley. As the High builds over the area, Tropical moisture will be drawn into the Region Friday through Monday. Thunderstorms will be possible out toward the Colorado River this weekend as well as a chance for the Big Bear area, and local mountains and Deserts. As the Monsoonal Moisture moves toward the area, humidity levels will rise as well making for less comfortable weather over all.
..Now, post Tropical Storm Cosme, is fizzling out over the Pacific. At this time, there are no other storms in the Eastern Pacific.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.
Thank you. RC @ www.lakegregoryweather.com

..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)


Yesterday’s High and Low temperatures were:
Crestline-73/52*, Twin Peaks-70/52*, Lk Arrowhead-73/54*, Running Springs-73/53*, Big Bear-76/43*, GVL-73/48*, San Berdo-93/62*, Wtrmn Cyn-81/50*.



..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.
..Last night’s Fireworks show at Lake Gregory was a very good display! Hope you that went enjoyed it.
..This morning, there is low level Fog in the Valley that will clear out to the Coast by noonish. High clouds that have sheared off of once Hurricane Barbara are flowing over SoCal at around the 20,000-30,000 foot level. These will be around for most of the day, so Sunset pictures may be exceptional tonight.
..A Trough of Low pressure will deepen across the West today and Monday along with a Catalina Eddy that together will help to deepen the Marine layer, and help to push Fog and low clouds into the Coastal, and Inland Valleys, tonight and tomorrow morning. Temperatures will be several degrees cooler today and Monday as the Trough moves through the area. Gusty winds may develop as well in the passes and along the mountain Ridges tonight and Monday. For tomorrow morning the Marine layer may thicken to around the 4000′ level in the morning so plan accordingly if you are heading off the hill.
..Tuesday temperatures will begin an upward trend through the next 5-10 days as High pressure moves up from Texas and parks in New Mexico and Colorado later in the week. This will increase the temperatures locally as well as all of SoCal. As the High moves into that region, a Southerly flow aloft will eventually draw in Moisture from the South, or Monsoonal Moisture. As that occurs, we may see Thunderstorms develop out at the Colorado River area for next Friday through Tuesday the 16th. Locally the moisture is not expected to much of a factor until late in the weekend and then mostly for the lower Deserts and maybe the Big Bear area.
..So overall, enjoy the cooler weather as it looks like we will be warming up to more normal temperatures in the days ahead.
..As for the Tropical update, Cosme is coming along but doesn’t look like it will make Hurricane status as of this morning. Cosme is a Tropical storm and will likely remain that way through the next couple days then dissipate in the Pacific.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Today there will be the Jamboree Day Parade in the morning followed by Fireworks at 9pm at Lake Gregory. NO PERSONAL FIREWORKS ARE ALLOWED!
..Last evening we had a strong Earthquake as most of us felt, now is a good time to think about your “Bug out Bag”. This is a good idea for Fire season, as well as any other potential Disasters such as Earthquakes.
..The weather today will be perfect for the outdoor activities, be sure to have sunscreen available.
..High temperatures today will range from the mid 70s to 80* locally. Skies will be mostly clear except for some High clouds later today. Winds will be light and variable. Tonight’s Temperatures for the Fireworks will be in the mid to upper 60s.
..We will continue to have mild temperatures through Monday as the bottom of a medium wave Trough that has been stationary over the West, finally moves through.
..Tuesday, we will begin to warm up as High pressure will begin to build into the Region. This will bring in much warmer temperatures along with increasing Humidity through the work week ahead. By Friday, Monsoonal Moisture will begin to move into the Desert areas out toward the Colorado River with possible Thunderstorms developing there. Here we will see a slight chance for Thunderstorms developing over the Big Bear areas by Saturday.
..The Trough that has kept us in a cool weather pattern will move East Monday, and High pressure will move over the Four Corners area of the Country. This will be the pattern for the next week or so which will bring in the weather change to our area in the form of warmer weather locally.
..To our South, Hurricane Barbara is weakening and will be a Tropical Storm by this afternoon. The next system to develop, Cosme, will become a Tropical Storm later today or tomorrow and a Hurricane soon thereafter. The Track of Cosme looks like it will be a little more Northerly so we may see some remnant moisture next week from that.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..This morning we have clear skies across the mountain communities with haze in the Valley below. We will continue to be at the bottom of a medium wave Trough in SoCal that is centered well to our North. So generally our weather pattern will only vary slightly for the next few days.
..Friday and Saturday temperatures will warm up a few degrees as the the Trough weakens slightly, then strengthens again for Sunday and Monday bringing in slightly cooler temperatures.
..Tuesday the Trough will weaken again as an area of High pressure now centered over Texas expands from East to West. This will likely put an end to the ongoing Troughing we have had for the last month or so as well as the cool and mostly dry weather.
..As the High pressure expands West over SoCal, temperatures will warm slowly through the week. The circulation around the High will most likely draw in Subtropical moisture later in the week to the southern portions of California. The long range models show a chance for moisture next weekend in the form of weak T-Storms for the Lower Desert areas and possibly the Big Bear area.
..On the Hurricane topic, Barbara is moving out toward the Hawaiian Islands and weakening rapidly. However, there are two more Tropical disturbances forming at this time. The path of these next two systems is unsure at this time, but will likely head on a similar path. There will be a chance for some of the moisture to get caught up in the circulation around the High to our East next weekend which could add to the possibility of a T-Storm locally. We’ll see.
..All in all, we should have very nice weather through the Holiday weekend.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Happy Fourth of July!!
..A couple of things to know, THERE ARE NO PERSONAL FIREWORKS allowed in the Mountain areas!!
..LAKE ARROWHEAD will have their FIREWORKS show tonight at 9pm over the lake.
..LAKE GREGORY will have their FIREWORKS show on Saturday night at 9pm over the lake.
..Now for the weather, we will continue to have very nice days through the weekend. Currently a Trough of Low pressure near the West Coast will weaken slightly allowing for a slow and mild warming trend through Saturday.
..Sunday and Monday the Trough will strengthen again with a slow cooling trend. The Marine layer will likely deepen again with morning fog possible in the Valley.
..For Tuesday through the end of the work week next week, Tropical High pressure will move in from the Southeast expanding across most of the West. This will bring in warmer temperatures again to SoCal along with much dryer air. This time the continuous Troughing that has moderated the temperatures across the West doesn’t look like it will return. So we could be looking at a long term warmup that will last for a couple weeks under High pressure.
..Hurricane Barbara is still a MAJOR Hurricane this morning at a CAT3. Barbara is expected to die out to a Tropical storm, then a post Tropical depression, as it heads in to cooler waters. At this time, Barbara is on a path toward the Hawaiian Islands and may bring some effect there Tuesday. However there will only be remnants by that time so no major effects are expected there.
..All in all, we should have very nice weather through the Holiday weekend.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
There will be only subtle changes in the forecast for the next few days. We will have breezy mornings and afternoons with a few high clouds floating over throughout the day.
..A trough of low pressure will begin to weaken tomorrow allowing a Sub Tropical High to expand closer to SoCal. Temperatures will warm a few degrees through Saturday but I don’t see any big changes other than a little warming for the Holiday activities.
..Sunday we will begin a cooling trend again as another Trough approaches the West. Morning low clouds will hug the Coast during the morning hours and may move Inland briefly, then clearing out rapidly later in the morning.
..This mornings pressure gradient is running at ~7mb onshore from San Diego to the Desert areas.
..All in all, we should have very nice weather through the Holiday weekend.

Good Morning.
This morning we have clear skies with light and variable winds. Not much change in the forecast for the next few days other than a little more morning fog below and a few degrees of warming in the days ahead.
..A trough of low pressure will move through the Pac-NW over the next two days. Behind that High pressure will slowly build into SoCal. This will bring a slight warm up for the latter part of the work week and for the Fireworks shows on the weekend.
..Daytime high temperatures will run from the mid 70s to 80* in the warmer areas with overnight lows running from 50-57*. For the higher elevations, overnight lows will be in the low to mid 40s.
..Crestline Jamboree Days will have their Fireworks show on Saturday night at 9pm with temperatures running from 64-69* for the show.
..Currently Hurricane Barbara is 1000 miles of the Southern tip of Baja California, at a CAT1, and is expected to strengthen to a CAT4 by tomorrow. Barbara should not have any affect on our weather here during the next four days.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Today begins the new rainfall year. This years total at my location was 54.16″ Rain/ 25.00″ of snow. Last year(2017/2018) we had 19.57″ Rain and 4.25″ of Snow.
The average rainfall for Crestline is around 38-40.00″. So this year was much wetter than normal.
..Today through Wednesday a Trough will deepen off of the Pac-NW helping to increase the onshore flow locally and keeping the temperatures in check. The Marine layer will return to the IE probably Tuesday morning and will be more likely on Wednesday morning. We will continue to have clear skies as there is not a cloud in Southern California except the Coastal fog. Afternoon winds will pick up each day through Thursday as typical afternoon and evening winds from the heating and cooling of the Deserts take place.
..As it looks this morning, the weekend activities should have very nice weather with slightly warmer temperatures across the Mountain region through Sunday.
..The second Hurricane of the year, Barbara, is expected to become a major hurricane West of the Southern tip of Baja California by Tuesday night. Barbara will head out to sea on a westerly course with little to no effect on the West Coast. Another depression is forming just behind Barbara’s current location and is expected to become a Tropical Depression in a couple days. for SoCal there is no sign of any Monsoonal activity for the next five days.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as needed.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
..Well, so much for the rain? I guess I blew that forecast. Anyway, a few sprinkles did fall in the Riverside and San Diego areas overnight according to the NWS, but nothing measureable.
..The remnants of Alvin are moving into Arizona then East from there this morning. Here, we will have mostly clear skies today with high clouds drifting through all day. The SoCal area will be sandwiched in between High pressure to our South East, and Low pressure off the Oregon and Washington Coast. So we’ll be in a zonal type flow for a few days. It doesn’t look like there will be much change in temperatures over the next few days as 500mb heights are pretty stable at 585-588dm through the next five days. We will see the general wind pattern become more westerly over the next few days with gusts from 5-10mph. The Marine layer will slowly return to the IE around Tuesday or Wednesday morning helping to keep a lid on temperatures locally.

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


Good Morning.
Today high clouds will fill the sky as remnant moisture from Tropical Storm Alvin move over the SoCal region. Currently all of the moisture is at the 11,000′ level and above. PWAT (precipital moisture) levels are running at or about .85-1.12″ and will stay there for most of the day. There will be a slight chance for a sprinkle today in the higher elevations but the lower elevations are so dry that any precipitation will evaporate before reaching the ground. Reading the Skew-T diagram this morning it is clear that the moisture will stay above 10,000′ today. CAPE values will be well below 500j/kg as well today, so no thunderstorm activity is expected.
..For Sunday, we will start the day out with cloudy skies and the possibility for light rain as the moisture field deepens to around the 7000′ level. The air mass will be saturated above the 7000′ level to around the 40,000′ level by 4am tomorrow morning. A weak wave will be passing through the flow at around 5am which will bring our best chance for a shower locally. The air mass will remain saturated through early afternoon with PWAT levels running ~1.60″ over the mountains. Then all of this will move through by late afternoon and we should see clearing skies again by early evening. Sunday there will be a slight chance for a T-Storm over the Mountains and Deserts but the parameters for that are very weak but I wanted to mention it just in case.
..Monday through mid week, the Marine layer will return to the IE during the morning hours with temperatures remaining about the same as they have been.
..That’s it for now! Be sure to check on the Lake Gregory Weather Group, facebook page, for any radar loops or storm updates as may be needed.
