TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Today we will have increasing high clouds throughout the day. Tonight, we will see increasing lower level clouds with fog developing along the Rim. Rain will begin late tonight through Saturday morning as the first of several weather systems moves through SoCal. PWAT levels are low (~.35-.55″) so I don’t expect to see much more than an inch of rain locally.(~.75-1.25″max) The freezing levels with this storm will start out around the 6000′ level so snow will be possible to the 5200′ level at times. Snow accumulations above 5500′ will vary from 1-6″ with the most at the higher elevations.
Saturday, the storm will slowly clear out with some residual showers locally.
Sunday, we will have increasing clouds during the afternoon as the next system arrives early Monday morning. The Atmosphere will be saturated Monday from 4500′ to
30,000′ so I expect to see some pretty good rainfall totals from this storm. The snow levels will rise as this warmer system moves into the area,(~6000-6500′). PWAT levels for this system will be from, .80-1.20″. Running Springs will be at the snowline as it looks this morning, so they will likely see wet snow there. Big Bear should be well within the freezing air so they may see up to a foot of new snow for the ski resorts there. For the rest of the work week, rain/snow at the higher elevations will be likely through Friday morning. Some SoCal regions are forecast to receive up to 10″s of rain through Friday. Tuesday and Wednesday look like the heaviest rain/snow potential. Flooding may be a possibility for the lower elevations mid week next week, for the areas prone to flooding. RC
