Scattered rain showers will overspread the area by midday tomorrow. Periods of rain will persist into Monday night and then will taper early Tuesday morning. Most of San Diego County will see a half inch or less. Monday will also be a blustery day with winds gusting up to 35 mph. Mountain winds will gust as high as 60 mph.
Snow levels will start off at 4500-5500 feet early Monday and then drop to 3500-4500 feet by Monday night. This storm system is moving fast and doesn't have much moisture, so I'm expecting 2 to 4" above 3500 feet and 3 to 6" above 4500 feet. Isolated areas could get more. Definitely good news for Bear Mountain! In addition, parts of the central Sierra will easily see over a foot of new snow.
I've posted the snow outlook from two computer forecasts. The first one is from the RPM, which I think is accurate, while the second one (NAM) is too dry.
