Southern California Weather Force has issued a Santa Ana Wind Watch for below the passes and canyons, and parts of the Low Desert, including the Morongo Basin, Colorado River Valley, Imperial County, and up north to the Las Vegas forecast area, effective now for Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
The month of February will have a number of strong Santa Ana Wind Patterns, the first one this Wednesday and another one, possibly stronger, sometime over this coming weekend. These patterns will be created with storm systems missing the region to the east, over the eastern half of Arizona. Their northerly flow on the western periphery will be enough to generate upper, thermal, and gradient support for a moderate to strong event on Wednesday followed by a strong event in the next week or so, this next weekend.
Northerly winds support the strongest winds being out of the Cajon Pass through the prone zones of the Inland Empire, and a full hit of the low deserts zones as stated above. This also opens up the Santa Clarita Valley into the Ventura Coast/Basin areas. Like the last event, Damaging winds are expected with this one. Although not as strong of upper support, it will be enough to bring wind gusts that will make travel near impossible for high profile vehicles within the crosswind areas, including along I-40, I-10, and I-8 through the low/high desert areas.
I would suggest anyone reading this to get your Santa Ana Wind plans together before the arrival on Wednesday. We will see wind gusts over 50 mph in the known areas with 70+ in the southern mountain slope areas.
I will be updating the member section models as the event nears, but for now this watch will do.

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.”
