Issued Zones: Kern, Ventura, Santa Barbara Mountains above 2000 FT …
Site: SouthernCaliforniaWeatherForce.com has issued a Snow Advisory effective now through Saturday morning …
Date: 12/24/15 at 10:15am PT
Forecast: The snowfall will start around 5pm-7pm this evening as the first round comes in. Snow level across the Kern / Ventura / Santa Barbara Mountains will be 4,000 FT and dropping through the night. All pass levels through the Kern County Mountains will be affected with this. Moderate snowfall is likely for the PMC/Gorman regions … with 1-3″ likely in PMC by Christmas afternoon .. leaning toward the 2-3″ mark.
Tehachapi however will see a round of heavier snowfall tonight due to the stronger west to east wind flow against the slopes there … so higher snowfall ‘rate of fall’ in Tehachapi than PMC. Our snowfall model does reflect moderate, but it will be heavy for Tehachapi. On and off light snowfall likely through Christmas on both ranges.
A secondary impulse may increase the snowfall rates yet again Christmas Evening into the night for the Gorman Pass and PMC forecast zones. If traveling the Grapevine … suggestion is not doing so as it will be dangerous Christmas Evening.
The snowfall charts show 7-8″ for PMC from today through Saturday morning … however that is for Mt. Pinos … I’ll give a healthy 3-5″ for the PMC region with dangerous road conditions. Use the snowfall charts below for your area.
Saturday does not look like it’ll get above freezing … or it’ll be a close call … which means all that snow will make for icy conditions … with better conditions on Sunday as ‘slightly’ warmer air comes in.
Very windy conditions will follow this storm this weekend …
