Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Tuesday, Nov 19 @ 10:03pm *** WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT 7AM WED TO 7PM THU ***
An upper-level low lifting northeast into Arizona overnight will draw subtropical moisture across the area with scattered showers continuing, an isolated thunderstorm is possible. Showers will likely taper off a bit after midnight as the plume of moisture sags south and east of our area. Cool and breezy with southeast winds 5-15mph as the snow level lowers to around 8,000ft., lows in the 30's. A second, colder low will drop in from the northwest tomorrow, spreading more rain and snow across the area with lower snow levels. Cold and windy with a high near 40-degrees, west to northwest winds gusting 15-25mph at times as the snow level lowers to around 6,000ft. Due to the cold and unstable environment, showers could be somewhat spotty in nature with a few isolated thunderstorms possible, bringing occasional heavy downbursts. Scattered snow showers will linger Wednesday night into Thursday morning as low pressure slowly moves east. We'll have to watch for potential wrap-around moisture which could boost snowfall totals across the San Bernardino Mountains. Overall, expect snowfall accumulations in the 3-6" category; totals will range on the lower end of the scale near 5,000ft with higher amounts possible above 6,000ft where upwards are 4-8"+ could fall in a few locations! We'll remain partly cloudy, cool and breezy through the weekend with highs in the 40's as lows drop back into the teens. Another weak system could brush the area later Friday with a few flurries possible, then another potential storm towards the Thanksgiving Holiday. As always with weather, things are subject to change, so check in often for frequent updates! With the first significant storm of the season here, now is a good time get ready for winter weather in the mountains. Always carry tire chains when traveling and be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions, also a good idea to bring along extra food, water, and warm clothing!
