TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
..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*
