TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
It’s a beautiful clear morning here in Crestline with light and variable winds. Warm temperatures stayed with us overnight with all but Big Bear and Green Valley Lake remaining in the mid to upper 60s.
..Today will be another very warm day across the mountain with highs running from 82-91*, depending on location. Big Bear and Green Valley Lake will be the cooler end of the temperatures, Arrowhead and Crestline will be on the higher end. There is a very slight pressure gradient from San Diego to the upper Desert this morning of around 3mbs. The Monsoonal flow will briefly brush our area this afternoon so I expect to see Clouds building up to our East over the Desert region again today. The chances for Thunderstorms will mainly be from the Colorado River area and East, today. The upper level winds will keep any storms that do develop from reaching our area today.
..Tomorrow the upper level area of high pressure now centered over Colorado will begin to weaken. This will start a slow cooling trend over the next five days. Also a weak Trough will move through the West Tuesday, further helping to cool daytime temperatures while helping to develop a deeper Marine layer. We may see a return of fog to the Inland Valleys Wednesday and Thursday.
..On the long range outlook, Temperatures will likely warm up again for late in the week next week, with the possibility of a return of Monsoon Moisture to the area.
..The increased Heat will raise the Fire Danger levels for the next four days.
..As always, be careful with any type of outdoor fire and make sure your outdoor pets have plenty of shade and water.
..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.

..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
