Pacific Storm Peter Announced: Category Three System To Bring Low Elevation Snow To Inner Valleys


Pacific Storm Peter has been named and he’ll start off as a category three.  Unlike Osiris, Peter will position himself to bring the coldest air of the season thus far and low elevation snow levels, along with the risk of thunderstorms.

As stated awhile back, the track of Pacific Storm Osiris was such that the system would alter the storm pattern to bring better storm systems further west and Pacific Storm Peter is the first in this series that would go into March as well.  The system is expected down into our region later on Monday and move directly overhead on Tuesday.

Grids here at Southern California Weather Force indicate that the snow-level will go as far as 2,300 FT and thus flakes through 1,300 FT can be expected in some Inland Valley areas, including the upper Inland Empire areas like Perris/Hemet/Banning/Yucaipa/Fontana/ and even upper Rancho.  Furthermore the travel along Highway 14 between the Santa Clarita Valley to Lancaster may also have snowfall, including the Agua Dulce regions.  The system’s surface low dropping south of the Los Angeles and Orange County areas would allow for some northerly flow to set and with that would come the risk of high desert snowfall, stretching a large area from Lancaster to Ridgecrest, east to Lucerne Valley and the Morongo Basin.

There will also be the chance of thunderstorms with this system and thus is the reason it pushed the category up.  Wind gusts are not expected to be strong as this system will go directly overhead with all associated mid/upper jet stream winds going around us, but there could be some advisory to below advisory gusts in the deserts.  Nothing like today however where westerly flow is setting up for gusty mountain/desert winds with offshore mild Santa Anas for tomorrow (Sunday morning)

The system has the potential to bring the coldest air and lowest snow levels of the season.  Tracking of the system will continue through the weekend, however all of my models are 100% confident in the system’s current track and all listed in this write-up.

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 –
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…
Thank you…
