Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Winter Weather Watch effective Tuesday evening through Wednesday …
Date Issued: 2/19/22 at 11:40am local
Forecast: An arctic inside slider will move through the area on Tuesday evening through Wednesday. The snow-level will drop very quickly overnight into Wednesday and be at or even below the 3,000 FT mark. Clearly the most snowfall will be where the southwest/west flow hits the mountain areas so that puts the Kern Mountains, San Bernardino, Riverside Mountains into the heaviest snowfall risks.
Other areas such as the High Desert regions of the Yucca/Morongo Valley areas west through the Lucerne and Victor Valley areas, even further west through the Cajon Pass, Neenach, ROsemond, and Mojave zones stand the chance at seeing light snowfall accumulations.
The front will also drop the snow-levels to upper elevations west of the Las Vegas strip, within the communities there for light snowfall accumulations.
If the front continues southward through the period, we could even see some light snowfall accumulations in the Upper Banning Pass areas as well.
SCWF snowfall models will be updated on Tuesday with the final alert issued …
A Winter Weather Watch from Southern California Weather Force means that conditions are favorable for winter weather to impact the area, including travels at and above the snow-level. This is the second alert to the final, issued days before an event is expected. The final alert, issued 24-18 hours before the event is expected finalizes the forecast and brings the models out for public viewing. That would be the Winter Weather Advisory or Winter Storm Warning. It will be decided on Wednesday.
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.

10 mile rule: These alerts issued on this site means that within your zone and 10 miles from you will see the event forecast for. You may or may not see the event but it means you are in the zone or 10 miles from where someone will.
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.”
