TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Today we will begin a change in our weather across the Mountains. An area of low pressure currently off the Coast will begin to move Inland later today. This will bring much cooler temperatures and gusty winds this afternoon to most of the local mountain areas. Temperatures are expected to be from 5-10* cooler today from what we had yesterday. Highs today for the Crestline and Lake Arrowhead areas should be in the mid 70s while in Big Bear and Running Springs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Overnight lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s for the local area and Big Bear may dip into the upper 30s by Friday. Fog and low clouds will develop as the onshore flow increases with fog likely in the Western parts of the Valley today, and up against the front side of the mountain by later tonight. The Marine layer is expected to thicken up to the 4500-5500 foot level by tomorrow morning with drizzle in the morning as well below that elevation. So wet roads will be a possibility for the morning commute tomorrow. West Coast troughing is expected to continue through the middle of next week as a couple more areas of low pressure will arrive in the PAC-NW keeping the cool weather pattern intact for SoCal through that time period. At this time, it doesn’t look like we will see any rain from these systems as they pass to the North. For our area, fog and low clouds with gusty winds will be the forecast. Some passing clouds will pass by today giving some character to the daytime skies.
On another note, I have started a Facebook page called, lake Gregory Weather group. This is for all of you weather enthusiasts to post weather events and or talk about weather stories from your area etc. All I ask is that you keep on topic and use common sense when blogging. This is a public group for all to use. This is also where I will post NWS Warnings and local RADAR loops as needed or any other pertinent weather related info for the local area.RC
