Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Monday, Jan 16 @ 05:52pm
Looking at a rather complicated forecast this week as a series of powerful winter storms is set to take aim on southern California, with significant snowfall anticipated through the weekend, possibly beyond! We'll enjoy the calm before the storm over the next couple of days, a nice break with warmer temperatures out there as highs climb into the mid 40's both Tuesday and Wednesday, with overnight lows in the teens and 20's. We'll see a few high clouds around at times with southwest winds 10-20mph during the afternoons. Our first storm approaches our area late Wednesday, with rain and snow showers developing by Wednesday night, then snow showers likely on Thursday. Colder and very windy as well with daytime temps dropping into the 30's by the end of the week and our overnight lows generally in the 20's. A second, stronger system rolls in on Friday with more snow, possibly heavy at times, before a 3rd and weaker system moves through into the weekend, keeping snow showers around through a least Saturday. We may experience a brief respite Sunday, with additional storms on the horizon into next week, and they could be significant. Unfortunately, next week's storm(s) may also tap into subtropical that moisture off the Pacific/AR, so we'll have to watch those snow levels as they could rise a bit. Regardless, we're still looking at the potential for at least 1-2 feet of snow just through the weekend; with 2-4 feet total possible now, through next week. As always, check back often here for pretty frequent updates! If traveling to the mountains, always be prepared for winter driving conditions and carry tire chains, as weather can and will change rapidly.
