Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Friday, Jan 20 @ 09:55pm
The worst of our second storm system is now east of the area, but we're not entirely out of the woods yet, as a strong westerly flow with plenty of residual moisture and near saturation up to around 600mb, scattered snow showers will persist into Saturday; additional accumulations of 3-6" are possible on top of the 1-2 feet that has fallen since Thursday; travel with extreme caution! Snow showers will taper off a bit sometime Saturday giving us a brief break to dig out and prepare for the arrival of the 3rd and strongest storm of the series Sunday. This system will tap into subtropical moisture off the Pacific, or "atmospheric river" as they're now called, bringing locally heavy rain and snow late Sunday morning through Monday. The snow level may actually climb to above 7,000 feet initially, then quickly drop to around 3,500 feet by Monday morning. It's quite likely we'll receive a couple inches of rain, on top of all the recent snow, there could be some potential flooding issues, then additional snowfall accumulations of a foot or more is possible Monday; even the threat for severe thunderstorms once again. Snow showers will finally taper off Tuesday, giving us a much-needed break to dry and dig out through the second half of the week. After all is said and done, the majority of Southern California could be close to our average precipitation for the entire season; including the Big Bear Valley. If traveling to the mountains through early next week, be prepared for harsh winter driving; carry extra food, water & warm clothing in the event you become stranded and always carry tire chains, as weather conditions will change rapidly; if you don't have to travel, don't!
