Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Tuesday, Dec 18 @ 03:35pm *** USFS IS CONDUCTING PRESCRIBED BURNS TODAY - SMOKE IS VISIBLE ***
Variable high clouds into this evening with light winds, lows tonight dropping into the 20's. Expect fair and unseasonably warm weather through the end of the week under strong high pressure with dry conditions out there. Winter officially arrives on Friday, though it won't feel like it with highs reaching the lower 60's by Thursday, while overnight lows generally cool to the 20's, easterly winds to 15mph at times. High pressure will finally break over the weekend, allowing temperatures to cool with increasing high cloudiness, highs back down in the lower 50's. Looking ahead, forecast models are coming in to better agreement with an overall change to our current pattern, with troughing developing along the west coast and a better chance for some wet weather by the New Year! The first system looks to drop down the west coast Monday, spinning up a closed low in our vicinity on Christmas Day, bringing a chance of snow showers, which could make for our first white Christmas in a while! Another, more potent storm is currently forecast to arrive later next week, with better potential for more widespread precipitation. It's still very preliminary, at this time, the Christmas Day storm looks mostly weak to moderate, the second storm closer to the 27th-28th looks more moderate to strong in intensity. Of course we'll fine tune details in the coming days so stay tuned!
