Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Friday, Nov 22 @ 02:04pm
| Looking at a cool and breezy finish to our week today under mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-40's, northeast winds around 5-15mph. Little change through the weekend as highs climb to around 50-degrees Saturday, even reaching the lower to mid-50's by Sunday and Monday, while overnight lows generally drop into the 20's. East to northeast winds will persist through the weekend 5-15mph at times, with locally stronger gusts possible below passes and canyons. Looking further ahead, Monday should be a nice start to the week with Tuesday our transitional day as troughing deepens across the west coast, leading to a stronger onshore flow, gusty west winds, and cooler temperatures. Forecast models coming into better agreement our next storm could be one of the strongest in some years, expected to arrive Wednesday and may continue all the way through the weekend with heavy rain and snow possible. A deep, cold low diving south along the west coast may tap into subtropical moisture, setting up a strong atmospheric river event into Southern California with locally heavy rain possible across all areas beginning Wednesday. This has the potential to drop several inches of rain with strong, damaging winds. The snow level may climb to above 9,000 feet before the cooler air arrives late Thursday or Friday, then persisting through the weekend as the low stalls out across the area. By Friday, snow levels could be down around 3,500 feet with around a foot or more of snow possible through the weekend. This storm is still in its development stage, but now is a good time to prepare for this potentially major winter storm, additional details to come as details come into better focus. With winter weather now upon us, it's a good reminder to always carry tire
chains when traveling into the mountains and be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions!
