Ben's Weather Forecast (updated Friday, Oct. 31st @ 8:00pm © 2014): WIND & WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR SATURDAY
Forecast remains on track as our first winter storm of the season continues sweeping down the California coast; currently entering Ventura & Santa Barbara counties. Increasing cloudiness and southwest winds kicking up 15-30mph with occasional gusts near 40 as our trough of low pressure approaches the area through midnight. Showers are expected to develop sometime after midnight as the main frontal boundary pushes into the area, with the snow level starting off above 7,000 feet, but could dip to around 6,000 feet sometime Saturday morning where up to 1-3 inches is possible, locally more above 7,500ft; but any accumulation will be quick to melt after sunrise and likely not accumulate throughout the day. Widely scattered showers will persist off & on Saturday, even into Sunday morning as the cold & unstable air mass remains in place across the region with another weak disturbance passing through; highs dropping into the 40's as lows actually dip into the teens in a few areas for the first time this season. This system will exit the region late Sunday before a dry offshore flow develops through midweek, holding temperatures a bit below average; warming more substantially towards next weekend. If travel plans take you into the mountains this weekend, travel with caution, carry tire chains and be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions.
