Weather Update

(COMPUTER FORECAST
4PM TODAY)
Periods of rain will persist through most of today and into tonight. Showers will begin to taper by early Tuesday morning. Though there is a slight chance for a random isolated shower in the afternoon, most of Tuesday should be dry.

Snow levels will range from 4500 to 5500 feet. A few flakes could fall in Julian, but it will not accumulate. The heaviest accumulations will remain above 5500 feet in the San Bernardino Mountains.


Weather Update For Next Week

I'm still expecting a large storm system to dive out of the Gulf of Alaska and bring all of Southern California a chance for rain late Monday into early Tuesday. In my previous post, I mentioned that our rain chances depended on the track of this storm. It looks like this system should move far enough west to tap into some moisture, so we should at least see a few showers develop. Snow levels will be relatively high, around 5000 feet, but we could see them dip down to about 4500 feet as the system exits Tuesday.

More Cool Weather Is Headed This Way

As I mentioned in my winter outlook, we have seen a persistent weather pattern over the past couple months. Right now it looks like this pattern will continue into the middle of this month - possibly even longer. Yet another storm system will dive out of the Gulf of Alaska and settle on top of Southern California.
