Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Dec. 11)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com)— It’s a fairly quiet morning…ahead of what will be a busy few days.
The wind advisories and Red Flag Warnings have cancelled. While we still have an off-shore flow this morning…we will start transition to an on-shore flow by this evening.
Expect temperatures to remain above average today. Tomorrow will be significantly different as a fast moving cold front drops through the Southland.
The speed of the front and the lack of moisture to work with will limit some of the rain totals. We can expect a 2 to 3 hour stretch of steady rainfall late tomorrow…then unsettled conditions through Thursday.
Total rainfall should be in the ballpark of .25″ to .50″. Not a big soaker…but with the unstable environment we could get a thunderstorm or even see some graupel make it to the ground.
The big story with this next system will snow levels. The snow levels could drop down below 4000′ with accumulation of 6″ above 4500′. Getting over the Grapevine on Thursday will most definitely be difficult. Resorts could see up to 10″ of new snow.
Temperatures will be way below average. There is another wave of energy that is moving through late Friday…but that doesn’t look to be too significant we’ll have to watch the models to see if it picks up some strength.
Valleys-low to mid 70s
