Issued Zones: San Bernardino, Los Angeles, and Riverside Mountains …
Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Blowing Snow Advisory effective now through later tonight …
Date: 2/15/19 at 10:00 am PT
Forecast: A weak front will move into the region today and not last long at all, at most around 6-9 hours for many of the advisory locations.
Snow levels will generally stick around 5,000 – 5,500 FT for the most part so with it not expecting much at the snow level .. however areas along the RIM of the San Bernardino Mountains will see appreciable amounts with 1-3″ for an average for Wrightwood and the Western RIM (Twin Peaks) and up through 6″ for Highway 18 between Running Springs and Big Bear Lake.
Lower amounts are expected for Eastern Big Bear Lake and City zones surrounding Baldwin Lake.
A good 2-4″ can be said for Idyllwild as well.
With the snow will come 40-50 mph wind gusts, upping this to the blowing snow advisory … Activity will cease overnight and return again on Sunday… this time with lower snow levels so await that wording.
