Issued Zones: Tehachapi to Big Bear areas, Riverside and San Diego Mountains … The entire High Desert and Morongo Basin zones … Coachella Valley … San Diego Desert east to the Imperial Desert around Brawley …
Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Fire Weather Warning and Wind Advisory effective Thursday May 19, 2022 …
Date: 5/17/22 at 3:30pm local
Forecast: A fast moving mid and upper-level jet stream from west to east will move through the area on Thursday. The core of this jet stream will be north of the area through Nevada and Utah, but the southern end will certainly open up downward forcing winds from the Tehachapi Mountains eastward to Las Vegas, the end of the SCWF forecast area with 30-45 mph winds and at some times 50 mph.
The wind extent does go through the San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego Mountains as well but if you notice it goes not go any further east than the Brawley/Indio areas. This is because the core, as I stated above, is further north and it won’t bring the advisory level winds to the Colorado River Valley then.
You will notice there are two colors, magenta-like and brown. The pinker one is the Fire Weather Warning and the brown is the wind advisory. Note that the wind advisory is closer to the coast than further inland. That is because this onshore flow will have humidity levels above the warning criteria in the wind advisory areas while areas further inland into the desert, including Las Vegas, will have the drier air, away from coastal influence.

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.”
