..Good Morning.
..This mornings Marine Layer has deepened to around the 5500-6000′ level as of 7am. Wet roads and poor driving conditions will be with us through Thursday night before we see the next change in our weather. Moring Drizzle or even a light rain shower Wednesday will be possible as the center of Low moves through.
..Temperatures will remain on the cool side with daytime high Temps running in the upper 50s to low 60s for most of the mountain communities. Big Bear will be above the Marine layer and will be a little warmer then the rest of the area with daytime highs there in the mid to upper 60s. Gusty winds each afternoon can be expected as well.
..A Closed Low will move onshore today around Point Conception. This will keep us in an onshore flow with cool temperatures, and morning Fog through Thursday.
..Friday things will begin to change as High Pressure moves in from the West. Temperatures will warm up and dry out fairly quickly for the weekend with little to no Fog for the weekend. This will make for a very nice weekend in the mountains.
..The next change in our weather will come early next week after a nice weekend. Sub Tropical moisture will return by Tuesday to our area. There will be a chance for Thunderstorms over the Big Bear and lower Deserts for most of the work week next week. Some of these storms could drift our way towards Crestline and Lake Arrowhead at times. Temperatures will be seasonal with daytime highs in the upper 60s to low 70s as it looks now.
..The Crystal Ball Outlook:🔮
..The Crystal Ball is having a melt down as the long range weather outlook has it confused. We could be entering a El Nino affected weather pattern that will bring Monsoonal Moisture into the Region early this year. Or?? So we will just have to wait until things clear up a little. Reboot. RC.
..So that’s it for today. Thank you for visiting my weather webpage, and thanks for all of your support. RC*

..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
