Showers and Isolated Thunderstorms For Metro Southern California Through Today; Details and Maps


In addition to today being the 28th anniversary rto the 1994 Northridge Earthquake where the weather was completely opposite under a warm ridge, a cutoff low that has stuck with us for several days will finally move inland and bring showers and isolated thunderstorms to parts of the region.  Some will see it, others will not… but I have the maps for you so read on for details …

A cutoff low will move through the region today.  The closer you are to it, the better chances of showers and thunderstorms.  Today, this would be anywhere from the Northern Inland Empire, Orange County, Los Angeles westward through Ventura and Santa Barbara County and into parts of the High Desert.  The most rain will fall across the southwest side of the San Bernardino Mountain foothills zones around Yucaipa.  These will not contain flood dynamics either, but we could see isolated thunderstorm activity Los Angeles westward where the instability is stronger with the upper-level low.

For the rain amounts predicted, keep scrolling below tot he ‘Rain Forecast’ images.

LONG RANGE:  We start to see the Pacific become a bit more active after say January 24-25.  This is when our best shot of actual storm activity to help bring January’s rainfall totals up some.  So, if you don’t have your roof done by then, you may be out of luck.  You have your outlook for the long range.  It’s the best shot we have this month.  I am not confident in strength at this time to issue a ‘long range weather advisory’ like I did last month.  It just doesn’t have the kick I am looking for yet, but I am always monitoring.

I control 10 counties in Southern California so there is a lot to say for various areas. The best I can do is let the images below speak for themselves.

The maps below are of flood, rain, snow, snow-level, or wind intensity, whichever is available now.  Each one is clickable.  Map 1 is NW SoCal, Map 2 is SW SoCal, Map 3 is SE SoCal, Map 4 is NE SoCal, Map 5 is the Cajon Pass, and Map 6 is the SCV region, which includes Gorman at the top.

Southern California Weather Force is a custom weather alert service that began in September 1999 off and is regarded as the most accurate weather service in the region, offering custom alerts, maps, and models to help save life and property.  The work done here is never 100% accurate, but it comes pretty close.  Southern California Weather Force runs on zones, so if an event happens in a zone that is 10 miles from the border of your zone, the forecast is still valid to activate your zone’s alert system.  A company quote to the public is that of “The Joker” and tells other agencies in weather this all the time… “This world deserves a better class of meteorologist… and I’m gonna give it to them”… out-forecasting even the National Weather Service with lead-time and precision, which makes this service a focus of ridicule and envy in the weather community due to having such accuracy. Alerts issued here are issued custom from this office and this office alone. You may not even hear it elsewhere, but if one is issued near or in your area, listen up because “if you do not wish to die in weather, follow, it’ll save your life one day.”

Master Meteorologist – is a consulting meteorologist for over 50 different companies, including energy, agriculture, aviation, marine, leisure, and many more areas. He has certs from Mississippi State for broadcast met and Penn State forecasting certs MET 101, 241, 341 and 361 as a meteorologist, but before then was completely self taught, barely learning a thing from the schools that he did not already know.
Both short and long-range is very important to know in those jobs so you can bet on accuracy here. He is versed in fields like Western USA, Tornadoes, Floods, Hurricanes, High Winds, Fire Behavior, Snow and Blizzards, Short Range, Long Range, Seasonal, and Life-Threatening decisions with over 20 years experience, out-forecasting all weather services available today with lead-time and precision, which makes him a focus of ridicule and envy.
NOTE: Alerts are posted on here, be it a tornado watch, etc, and these alerts are issued from this office and nowhere else. At times, which is often, you will see an alert forecast posted on here that you do not see elsewhere. That is fine, the track record of the main office is very high so maintain to follow an event when posted.
