Issued Zones: Kern, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside Mountains over 4,000 FT …
Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Winter Weather Watch effective now for the weekend …
Date: 11/5/20 at 7:20am PT
Forecast: Well finally the first snow of the season hits this weekend, although not as strong, it still is a welcome sight. A double-barreled system will move down the coast and start rain in the Kern areas as early as later Friday.
The cold air will arrive on Saturday across the watch areas with a snow-level of 4000-5000 FT for the Kern areas and 4500-5500 for the LA/SBD/RIV Mountain zones and there it will remain all weekend.
Wind will accompany the system, however since my grids do not show a whole heck of a lot of snow, the winter weather watch turning advisory seems appropriate. A Winter Weather Watch means conditions are favorable in the watch area for any type of falling snow, which turns into the final winter weather advisory on Friday evening so look for that to come next. But… wind will hit well before this hits on Friday so keep in mind all areas in this watch area in a wind alert as well.
Snow amounts will be given on Friday evening … It’ll be a tough one because this is a hybrid inside slider / over-water trajectory system, which means Running Springs to Snow Valley will see much more than Crestline and Bear Valley Springs (Kern) will see more than Pine Mountain Club.
I do NOT see this as a mountain pass closing event …
