Today’s Forecast for the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Twin Peaks, Running Springs and Big Bear areas:
As they say, last but not least. Storm #3 has arrived to SoCal this morning. Gusty winds along with for and light rain and snow have begun as of 4am this morning. Current temperatures @ 7am from Cedar Pines Park to Big Bear are running very close to the freezing level. Cold air that is left over from the previous system will mix out as the day wears on today. By noon, the cold air will be replaced with warmer air from the Pacific as the main area of Low Pressure gets closer to our area. Rain, heavy at times will begin around noon today and the heavy rain part of this system will last through around 7pm. The snow level for this part of the storm will be from 6500-7500′ as it looks this morning. Late tonight as the winds change to a more Northerly flow, colder air will again move back into the area with snow levels dropping rapidly. By tomorrow morning, we should see snow as low as the 3500′ level. Rainfall estimates for today will be from 3-6″ locally turning to snow late tonight with 3-6″ of snow likely tomorrow for the Crestline area. Lake Arrowhead can expect to see from 3-16″ of snow, depending on location, and Running Springs: 12-24″, Big Bear: 14-30″ of snow there. The NWS has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING AND A FLASH FLOOD WATCH for the local area. PWAT levels today will be around the 1.35″ area so heavy rain can be expected at times today. Rainfall rates of up to 2″ per hour will be possible for short periods of time, so flooding is a real possibility. Very cold air aloft will also bring the chance for Thunderstorms during the duration of this storm which will bring heavy rain and or hail along with gusty winds as they pass through. So as you can see, this storm will bring a variety of weather conditions to the Mountain areas. After this last system moves through, High pressure will build in to SoCal for the rest of the week. That’s it for now. Have a good day. *RC
