TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
For the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Twin Peaks, Running Springs and Big Bear areas:
Good Morning. Todays WIND ADVISORY will expire at 4pm. The RED FLAG WARNING will expire on Monday at 3pm. This morning we will have North East winds increasing through the day from 10-25mph for most areas, and 15-45mph likely in the wind prone areas along the ridges and in some canyons locally. Temperatures across the mountain will be about the same as Saturdays with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and overnight lows in the mid to upper 50s. Tomorrow, the winds will turn to a more Easterly direction as an area of low pressure to our south begins to affect our weather here. Today, a West Coast High at 596dm, is centered off of California. A developing area of low pressure in the North Western area of Mexico currently at 580dm, will expand into SoCal late Monday and Tuesday. As this area of low pressure expands into SoCal, Tropical Moisture will be drawn up from Baja and again bring increased moisture and cumulus type clouds into the area at the 10-15k’ level. Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be a chance for light rain showers and or Thunder Storms, from Running Springs to the Big Bear area. We will be on the far Western edge of the Tropical Moisture flow and will only have a slight chance for a T/Storm here. However, the good news is we will have increased moisture across the entire area and less wind so the RED FLAG WARNINGS will be over for now. Temperatures are expected to peak Monday, then cool off rapidly Monday night through the rest of the week. A trough of low pressure will arrive from the North late Wednesday, dropping South over the area and continuing to bring cooler air and the return of an onshore flow to the SoCal area. *RC
