Severe Thunderstorms Target Southern California: Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued Tonight Through Easter Sunday


Southern California Weather Force has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch and Thunderstorm Watch, effective tonight through Easter Sunday for the following zones:

Santa Barbara, Ventura County Basin and Coast … SCV … Los Angeles Basin, Valley, and Coast … All of Orange County, The Inland Empire … San Diego County … Cajon Pass … All of Imperial County … and the Riverside Deserts from Palm Springs through Blythe, AND let me not forget the Mexican Weather Service doesn’t help our neighbors south in Baja when I do … Baja, you are included … and all offshore Islands like Catalina and such …

Discussion:  A storm system, very rare for this time of year will utilize the warm air from the sun angle of spring.  This system is over the area now, but the main dynamics for cold air aloft will move over tonight into Easter Sunday.  Strong upper divergence associated with this system will bring about the development of thunderstorms in and around the watch area.  Where thunderstorms happen in the mountains of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego County will be called thundersnow.  Thundersnow means that snow will fall while lightning is happening.  If you’re outside playing in snow thinking lightning is not a threat, try me …

With any case … The magenta color in the article image means that severe thunderstorms will be likely, meaning, hail, wind, and even a tornado risk will be involved.  This is not a tornado watch, but it is edging on close to have been one.

PETS:  If you have pets, you will need to give them their needed medications if in the watch area as I know they get scared from thunder …

LONG RANGE: That’s all … expecting more storms through the first week of April on what I will call now a very rare year …

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 25 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
