Short Term Forecast


Issued Zones:  Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino Mountains above 6,000 FT …

Site:  Southern California Weather Force has issued a Short Term Forecast for some snow now through half of tonight …

Date:  5/26/19 at 5:10pm PT

Forecast: Did decide to wait on this event due to how uncertain the snow amounts would be for the 6,000 FT level mountain communities or where the rain-shadows would be but I do now know.  Quite honestly it looks weak, but for late May it’s rather interesting. 

We will have a dusting to two inches of snow above the 6,000 FT mark this evening and into tonight with the secondary impulse moving through .  Snow models here at Southern California Weather Force paint a dusting in Wrightwood with more west along Highway 2, a dusting in Big Bear with up to 2-3″ along Highway 8 centering Snow Valley, and a dusting in the Idyllwild zones with over 4-6″ in the rural mountain areas surrounding Mt. San Jacinto and none for the tram. 

This is what I came up with and based off the rural dusting zones with isolated zones at 2″, it falls short of my Winter Weather Advisory criteria and thus this wording will do nicely.  Everything should be gone by Monday.
