Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Tuesday, Jan 15 @ 08:29pm *** FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN NOW EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY ***
| Low-pressure to our north continues to pump moisture in off the Pacific bringing perodic rounds of rain and snow with isolated thunderstorms possible, expect showers to continue through tonight, occasionally moderate. The snow level continues to bounce around 6,000 feet this evening, but will eventually lower to near 5,000 overnight with lows in the upper 20's; showers tapering off after midnight. Gusty southwest winds will also continue 15-30mph at times, travel with extreme caution, driving conditions will likely deteriorate later tonight as temperatures slowly come down. We may get a little bit of a break Wednesday morning ahead of our last and strongest storm expected to arrive later in the day. Showers will once again increase Wednesday afternoon, becoming heavy at times Wednesday night into Thursday as the Pacific firehose is directed into central and southern California. Unfortunately, with the warmer moisture coming in off the Pacific, the snow level will climb to above 8,000 feet with snowfall accumulations reserved to the highest peaks. Winds with be very strong and gusty Wednesday into Thursday as this plume of moisture is backed by a strong jet, expect southwest winds 20-30mph with gusts near 50mph possible. Temperatures will remain in the upper 30's to lower 40's with rainfall amounts of 1-3" possible through Thursday, with upwards of 3-6" likely on the lower coastal slopes. The rain should come to an end late Thursday with dry and warmer weather returning Friday through the weekend!
If you have travel plans into the mountains this week, be prepared, carry extra food, water, warm clothing and always carry tire chains as weather conditions can and will change rapidly!
