A cutoff pattern is developing for this next week, which coincides with the previous forecast … and the forecast last month for mid-month to have a system move through. It will be monitored, but read on for some details.
While I am ready to bite on precipitation .. .the tracking will remain in question at the moment. Quite literally the track yesterday was over Southern California and a bit east, however today it is further west. The further west track is a bit surprising in the fact that a further west track brings it along the track I stated a few days ago and into what is called the Martin Storm Diamond.
If it does not say “Liked” LIKE The Page Below and join thousands of informed weather forecast viewers in our region for more of the updates!
The Martin Storm Diamond is an imaginary diamond-shaped zone to the southwest of Los Angeles. This zone, if the storms are centered in upper low fashion, is the zone at which upper divergence (lifting) in the northeast sector brings increased chances of heavier precipitation and the risk of thunderstorms. Such a system would be a named system as it would have a cold core associated with it.
But… as I stated .. given yesterday showed the center over and slight east of the area .. I will remain on monitoring right now and won’t bite on a Martin Storm Diamond System unless it still shows up like this on Sunday. The system is for between Tuesday the 13th and into Valentine’s Day of this next week. IF the system does hit through the storm diamond and further south … it could conceivably start gathering tropical moisture and as such .. surge back northeast and slam the area hard … SCWF premium (pro) members will receive daily updates on the track of the system in the member section while the next scheduled public article is not due in again until the weekend.
SCWF Micro-Climate Alert Changes Effective Immediately – 2018+ Read what it means as there are slight changes .. but won’t affect these types of articles.
Because of Facebook news-feed changes and removing ability to post on groups in my original profile saying it is spamming, website hits have gone down significantly. Effective immediately I no longer will provide micro-climate alerts to a free audience, but you will still be able to get these articles via the SCWF Website and Social Media Pages like you probably got this one from.
This is now members only and subscriptions can be looked into on the following link – https://www.southerncaliforniaweatherforce.com/system-sign-up/
There are more than 50,000+ viewers and a number on the android app receiving these micro-climate alerts. Some are members and some are not. If you are not, you will hit a page that says ‘Whoops members only’ in clicking one of these alerts.
Southern California Weather Force will no longer try to rely on Facebook hits to the micro-climate alerts. The articles will remain free, however with limited regional forecasts. The member only micro-climate alerts for flood, snow, frost, freeze, santa ana winds, fog, thunderstorms, tornado, and more will be what has the details in it, given to members with a subscription only. It is time I start acting like a business that self-sustains with memberships rather than hoping Facebook hits will get the ad revenue up, which has completely gone down since their algorithm changes and agendas of labeling my groups as ‘spam’..
So this is it.. If you wish to remain with SCWF without buying a subscription and reading only the regional articles posted then that is fine. Make sure you look up Southern California Weather Force Articles on Facebook.
If you wish to participate in growing this project, if this info has helped you in the past and will in the future, and want more detailed micro-climate (your area) information in the many alerts I issue via the App and/or email alert system … OR the micro-climate Facebook group you are on … Then a subscription is the only way to go.
I will try this for a further two years. I will shut the project down finalizing that it really never helped many people and that I wasted my time building this if I don’t see progress in the member-base. Custom forecasts take a lot of work and I’m not getting any younger…
