Severe Thunderstorm Watch


Issued Zones:  All San Bernardino County Deserts

Site:  Southern California Weather Force has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch effective now through today …

Date:  10/3/18 at 7:40am PT

Forecast: Pacific Storm Ophelia will be moving into the forecast area.  It is placing itself in the Martin Storm Diamond, a sweet spot southwest of the Southern California area.  Thunderstorms are expected as a result. 

For this watch zone, strong lifting later today/evening will promote thunderstorms.  Instability under the early October sky will give way to severe thunderstorms forming.  These storms will form in the upper divergent section of the storm itself and move off to the north and northeast. 

Damaging winds and larger hail is also possible along with frequent lightning.  Traveling in this area must be met with extreme caution.

The SCWF Tornado Watch is also in effect for the Needles forecast area, affecting travels along I-40 – Click for link
