TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..Well, yesterday turned out to be an interesting day! Parts of Big Bear received up to .30″ of rain, and even a few places had some hail, as a couple of lost Thunderstorms made their way across the Desert. As you may have heard on your TV, the Las Vegas NWS office posted a Flash Flood Warning for the 29Palms and other lower Desert areas during the afternoon. I really wish the San Diego regional NWS office would take over the warnings for OUR area! I have talked with them but…..
..So for today, The Monsoonal Air Mass has moved East this morning and we are now in a much drier SW flow. An area of Low pressure is moving toward the NOR-CAL Coastline and has already begun to influence our weather. The Marine layer has and will continue to deepen over the next couple of days as the Trough of Low Pressure moves Inland to our North. While we will not see any moisture from this system but, it will bring a much appreciated cooling trend through Saturday as the Trough moves through the West.
..Daytime Highs will run a few degrees cooler each day through Saturday. Overnight lows will do the same. Gusty winds will develop over the next few days as well. The skies should remain mostly clear except for a few random scattered clouds.
..On the long range outlook, High pressure will rebuild again beginning Sunday. Temperatures will again be on the rise. It looks like a more Zonal flow for our area so as far as the Monsoonal flow and higher humidity returning, it doesn’t look like it at least for the first part of the week.
..At this time there are no Hurricanes, or Tropical Depressions, in either the Pacific or the Atlantic regions at this time. Off the Coast of Africa there is some activity, so this may change for the Atlantic region soon.
As we head into the rest of the Summer, and the Fall Seasons, local Forest vegetation is drying out. Fuel moistures are below average now and the Fire Danger levels are on the rise. Be sure to check Fire Regulations before camping, to make sure of current Fire Regulations!
..That’s it for now. *RC

..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.
..Be sure to check out the other pages on the website for the Latest on El Nino, live webcams from around the area, live Radar, Satellite loops, Traffic conditions, along with live Weather conditions, and a live view of Lake Gregory from my weather station at the South side of the lake. Have a good Day! *RC
