Tornado Watch Issued For Southern California Metro Areas From Coast to Basin; Storm Upgraded To Category Six


Southern California Weather Force has upgraded the Severe Thunderstorm Watch area and has issued a Tornado Watch effective this afternoon through tonight effective for Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange County, and even San Diego with the secondary thunderstorm infested impulse as the storm has now been upgraded from a category five to a category six on the SCWF 1-6 scale so read on for details …

The first front is moving through the forecast area.  Click here for the timing in your area so I don’t need to hear you say ‘where is the storm’ in my comment section.  The first front provided heavy rainfall and gusty winds through Santa Barbara and Ventura, moving into Los Angeles as well.  This will exit east of the Tornado Watch area and you will see the Sun come back out.  Do not be fooled, when that Sun comes out in an unstable cold-core atmosphere we get instability developing very quickly.  Rare instability values for this area will happen this afternoon and evening and as this does so with the approach of the secondary impulse, the lift ahead and along it will pop off powerful thunderstorms that will produce larger hail, strong wind gusts, and even the risk of tornadoes,, hence this watch.

I’ve seen this setup before.  When you get an approaching impulse in tornado alley, upsloping occurs just ahead of it in the area where the best low-level shear (veering winds) will be.  This is what will happen for later today and tonight …

The last of the impulse moves through San Diego by midnight and then clears east of the area, ending the Tornado Watch

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.”

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.
