FINAL FORECAST: Inside Slider To Move Through Southern California Overnight Tonight Through Friday Morning; Rain, Snow, and Wind Models Inside


An inside slider will make a glancing blow to the forecast area overnight tonight through Friday morning with some areas seeing rain, some snow, some just wind, and some barely a thing at all so read on for details and see the models for your area …

This is the type of system that means you need to be near the mountain/foothill zones to get the most precipitation.  You can see the rain forecast below, the highest amounts reside in areas like Tehachapi, Yucaipa, and Banning .. all areas are near the mountains.  Furthermore you can see the rain rings out over the Santa Ana Mountains in Orange County, leaving the rain-shadow sections of the Inland Empire mostly dry.  The only real ‘action’ I see looks to be around the Big Bear areas where a good 1-3″ of snow is likely as snow levels with the passage of the weak front will be around 6,000 FT …

There will be a break for the west/south facing foothill zones on Friday later morning but in the afternoon, some instability could bring additional showers to those areas …

LONG RANGE:  This weekend looks great!  I’ll be in Carlsbad this weekend.  Changed my mind from Santa Barbara because the angle of the Sunset along the coast does not allow for overwater sunsets at this time of year … so without a marine layer that I am forecasting this weekend (exception being SLO/Vandenberg), we will have clear evenings for fantastic over the water sunsets for the west facing coasts … After that, warm weather returns through the rest of the month followed by another system for California (not sure strength here yet) the first week of May … May the 4th be with you?

Again, not much to talk about with this system.  Timing is overnight tonight into Friday morning.  The models below will give you an idea what to expect, even better if you are a full member for the GPS section of the member section for each of those models available for this system’s passage.

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.  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 RangeLong 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.
