Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Winter Weather Advisory effective today through Saturday morning …
Date: 1/19/18 at 9:30am PT
Forecast: Some changes to the forecast this morning with the snow track numbers has brought down some snowfall totals, but snow is still expected on the Tejon/Gorman Pass, PMC, and Tehachapi Mountain range today through Saturday morning.
Snow model here is bullish this morning on amounts, which I’m not sure I totally agree with right now. We have a strong low level jet coming into the Tejon/Gorman pass tonight. This low level component should act as a sponge and squeeze all the moisture out of that pass and the PMC zones.
Right now the model wants up to 2″ in the pass with a dusting in Tehachapi, 3″ just west of Woffard Heights, and up to 4-6″ in PMC. This seems correct given tonight’s low level wind component, which will favor the Southern Kern Mountains near the Tejon/Gorman Pass.
Should a bit more lift be provided, those numbers would be higher than my model shows.
So with that bring said I’ll do a final advisory for winter weather with snow falling at 4,000 FT this afternoon, 3,000 feet and below by tonight .. and gusty 30+ mph wind gusts … which will bring blowing snow to the PMC and Gorman zones tonight into Saturday morning.
