Good Morning.
..Thank you to Joel for keeping this website up and running!!
..Well the folks in Erwin Lake, Big Bear, had a little surprise this morning of 35*. Brrr!
..Today for the mountain areas we will have clear skies and gusty winds at times, mainly during the afternoon hours. Daytime high temperatures will be a little cooler with highs in the upper 70s and a few area into the low 80s through the weekend.
..Our weather will be governed by a 570dm area of Low pressure, currently off of Nor-Cal, with a trailing Trough extending South along the West Coast. This will keep us in a South West, or onshore flow, through the next several days. The Pressure gradient from San Diego to Daggett is currently at 4mbs, onshore. As the Low slowly moves to the Northeast today and tomorrow, we will continue to be in a Zonal flow aloft across the Southwest through mid week next week. So not much change for a few more days. This time of year, High pressure is usually set up around the four corners region with warm temperatures in the West as well as occasional Monsoonal flow into the Colorado River area, lower Dreserts, and Big Bear. However, the center of the High is currently, anomalously, situated South and East of the Four Corners Region, over Eastern Texas. This will remain the case through early next week before retrograding West, however the area of High pressure will remain further South than normal as it relocates mid week next week, so it doesn’t look like we will see the Monsoonal flow returning any time soon.
..Temperatures for Monday through Wednesday will warm up a few degrees before the next Trough moves into the West again later in the work week next week.
So overall, we have returned to a Troughing pattern along the West Coast for the time being. *RC
..As we head into the latter part of Summer and the Fall Season, the 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. Also I will be posting the Fire Danger levels on the WX Alerts page for a more in depth look at the local fire weather..(Website)
..That’s it for now.
..Thank you for joining me @

Yesterday’s High and Low temperatures were:
Crestline-79/59*, Twin Peaks-78/56*, Lk Arrowhead-77/56*, Running Springs-72/57*, Big Bear-76/36*, GVL-73/55*, San Berdo-99/59*, Wtrmn Cyn-87/54*.

..On the main page of the website, 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
