Southern California Weather Force has a Santa Ana Wind Warning for an upswing in the current Santa Ana Wind Pattern Wednesday overnight after midnight through Thursday for below passes and canyons so read on for details, but mostly the clickable maps, including the long range forecast for the rest of the month …
First and foremost, I’ve been getting messages from people wondering why I have not updated. Uh … I DID .. I said in the Enhanced Santa Ana Wind Warning article two things you should have read… one of those things was another event would hit on Sunday, and it did a couple days ago … another thing was that we would have a good 14 days of this offshore pattern, which it is … and the last thing I said was February would be warmer/drier than average … at times cooler nights with the dry air in place … So … I DID take care of it …
SANTA ANA WIND EVENT: Use the images below … These are called drainage winds so they won’t push much into the San Gabriel Valley areas but will affect the nominal Santa Ana Wind areas, ESPECIALLY the San Diego Foothill/Mountain regions where I expect them to be stronger than normal … Today we will see them continue, Thursday they will peak…. Friday they will be diminished… Saturday they elevated, but not as strong as Thursday … and then after Saturday it will end the pattern and return to onshore flow … as the below paragraph talks of …
Thursday’s wind event will ALSO BE A FIRE WEATHER WARNING due to warm temperatures and dry fuels –
Long Range: After Valentine’s Day we start to see the erosion of the upper ridge and this would bring onshore flow to the region with strong westerly winds in the area, including the mountain/desert areas. This will bring temperatures down to average or below and also remove Santa Ana Winds out of the forecast pattern. The pattern is telling me that either the end of the month or the beginning of March we should start to see a better rain chance for the region. As I stated in the last update for the Enhanced Santa Ana Winds… February will be warmer than average with drier conditions. We still remain at 10.50″ of rain for the season, which is STILL in my forecast margin of 10-14″ – so I have ZERO problem with this ‘break’ in the pattern as it is going exactly as I projected thus far …

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.”
