TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
For CRESTLINE, LAKE ARROWHEAD, AND TWIN PEAKS:
Today we will start to see a change in the weather across the local area. A trough of Low pressure will approach the area today, bringing an increase in the Marine layer with fog in the Coastal areas today. Cooler temperatures across the mountain today with gusty SW winds along with a few clouds will signal the beginning of the change in our weather. A “Cut-Off” Low will move over SoCal, bringing a chance for showers through the weekend. Fog will develop along the Rim as the Low gets closer to the area Thursday morning. By Thursday afternoon, we will have a chance for showers.
Friday, will be much cooler with showers and the possibility of Thunderstorms, as the Low will be centered over SoCal. The snow level will remain at or above the 6500′ level with a few inches possible above that elevation. In area where T-Storms do develop, Hail and lower snow levels along with possible heavy rain may occur for brief periods. Saturday will also be cloudy with the possibility of rainshowers. Sunday, we should be clearing out as the LOW moves East. By the end of this system, rainfall amounts will run from .50-1.25 inches with the greatest amounts along the Rim, due to orographic lifting. Gusty South West winds may reach advisory levels at times through the period, however, currently there area no advisories posted for our local area. RC
