February 2020 Weather Forecast For Southern California; Arctic Air Blasts Projected To Return


January 2020 ended warm, but overall the month was slightly below average in temperatures and below average in precipitation, right on line with the Southern California Weather Force long range forecast but what about February?  A change in the wind says I and February will have low elevation snowfall events returning to Southern California, much like we saw in November and December so read on for details …

We start the month off warm with a dive in temperatures after the weekend with the passage of a cold upper level low inside slider system that will bring us dangerous sea conditions and a wind storm for some.  Read that article by clicking here.

For what I have after that is for every warm period it means a large ridge is carved over the area with cold air on each side.  This arctic air mass is calculated by me sometime after February 8th and lasting through Valentine’s Day in a week period of the ridge shoving westward, allowing those colder systems to come into the Southern California area.  This also will bring chances of rain through the NHRA Pomona time-frame as well as other events across the region.  These systems will be cold enough for low elevation snowfall, so the High Desert is once again targeted for snow to fall during the month.  I did not call for such a forecast for January but did November and December so my long range powers are extremely accurate so the chances of this happening is 100% given that is my monthly forecast score so far this season.

February 2020 will be colder than normal as well, much like this entire season on average has been.  Because of this cold air in place, the Pineapple Express systems are not as fluent and while we may get a couple good storm systems for Los Angeles rainfall, we will probably still be slightly below average for the month, giving 1-3″ of rainfall for Downtown Los Angeles.  Still, it will be a better month storm-wise than January was and let us face it … January was terrible if you like storms.

So in conclusion, the month will be below average in temperatures and slightly below average for rainfall.  We are at 7″ in Downtown Los Angeles right now for the season and I projected between 9-13″ and given what I see in February and even through March, we should be right at that amount for the season.
