TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:

Mt High


..Good Morning.
..Looks like a nice weekend for the mountains. Clear skies with light and variable winds.
..There’s not much change for the next few days as High pressure will be our main weather maker for all of SoCal.
..Temperatures will be slowly warming up through Tuesday as the 500mb heights rise over SoCal.
..Monday and Tuesday there will be a weak influx of Monsoonal Moisture into the lower Deserts and the Colorado river basin so I look for a slight chance for a Thundershower there. Over Big Bear we will see a few cumulus clouds develop in the afternoon hours at times for the next few days but the T/Storm chances are slim for any storm activity as it looks now.
..Next week we will still have rather warm temperatures for all of SoCal so the NWS has issued a HEAT ADVISORY for Sunday and Monday for the Valley as temperatures are expected to be in the low 100s.
..Temperatures in the mountains will range from the mid to upper 80s for Crestline and Arrowhead, while Big Bear and the higher elevations will be a little cooler with highs expected to be in the upper 70s to low 80s through Wednesday.
..Have a good weekend! Enjoy the nice weather here in the mountains.

..My weather reports are derived from a variety of sources. This is how it looks today. RC*

TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:


..Good Morning.
..This morning, a weak Trough is passing over SoCal. As a result, the Marine layer has moved inland and is up to around 5500′ thick, with fog and clouds along and below the Rim.
..This will slowly clear out today as the Trough moves out of the area. However morning fog and low clouds can be expected again overnight and in the morning tomorrow.
..Temperatures will be running in the upper 50s to mid 60s today across the mountains as well as on Sunday.
..Late Sunday as a much stronger system approaches the West, we will see gusty winds develop along the Rim and front country in advance of a pretty wet system that will bring a good wetting rain to the area through early Tuesday morning.
..This system will have support of an Atmospheric River (AR) that will be dying out as it passes over SoCal. However, it will be strong enough to bring up to 2 inches of rain in some local mountain upslope areas. The recent burn areas need to keep watch over the recently burned hills for the possibility of flash Flooding or mud flows.
..The snow levels due to the AR from the South will keep those levels at 7500′ and above for this storm.
..As this will be the first rain that will likely cause some run off, this is a good time to check those drainage areas to make sure they are clear of debris.
..Tuesday and for the rest of the week ahead, we will have clearing skies and warming temperatures as High pressure rebuilds into the SoCal region. RC
..That’s it for now, have a good day! RC
