TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
Today’s Forecast for the Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Twin Peaks, Running Springs and Big Bear areas:
The graphic on the right shows a weak wave over Central Southern California area, that is bringing light rain to the local mountain areas this morning. The red dot is our general location, and the red circle denotes the general area of SoCal affected. For today, we will continue to have intermittent showers through mid day. The wrap around showers from the last system that we are having should, begin to clear out by the afternoon hours. Clouds and fog will likely remain a driving concern along the Rim below the 6200′ level most of the day. Winds will be light and variable today mostly from the South West. The Atmospheric River will continue to feed moisture into the area keeping Precipital Moisture levels (PWAT) above normal. This will also aid in a slow clearing process through Wednesday, especially along the Rim. Some clearing will be likely on the North side of Arrowhead and Deer Lodge Park, etc. Temperatures today will continue to be cool with highs in the mid to upper 40s for the Crestline and Arrowhead areas. Running Springs and Big Bear will have temperatures in the low to mid 40s today. Rainfall amounts over the last 24 hours were pretty consistent across the area running pretty close to 1.25″ generally through the Running Springs area. Another weak wave will pass through Monday bringing a chance for more light rain tomorrow. Tuesday looks like we will see some sun before another weak wave arrives for Wednesday with another chance for more light rain. Currently, the sun is out in the Big Bear and Fawnskin areas if you are feeling a little claustrophobic. The freezing level will be a little higher so any snow should be above the 6500-7000′ level through mid week. Thursday through Saturday will be mostly clear with warmer days before a cold core low arrives Saturday night. As it looks at this time, late Saturday and into Sunday temperatures will be cold enough to bring snow to most if not all of the mountain areas. That is a long way out so there will be changes in the forecast by that time, but that’s how it looks for now. The warmest day of the next five will be Friday with highs into the 50s.
