Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Feb. 20)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The storm came in late last night, just as predicted. Rain totals were in the ball park of about .25″.
You can expect some scattered showers this morning as the upper level low exits the region. Those snow levels did drop below the passes. The cold air is in place and the atmosphere is still unstable this morning.
While the storm will move out very quickly, it is going to be a very cold day in Southern California. Highs will top out in the 50s…there will also be leftover gusty winds.
The winter storm warning for LA has been cancelled, but it has been replaced by a winter weather advisory through the morning because of some additional accumulation and blowing snow.
There is another short impulse that will drop in tomorrow behind this trough; it will be dry, but it will keep temperatures well below seasonal averages.
While the rest of the extended forecast will be dry, we have opened the door to a series of inside slider systems that will scoot through the west coast and into the heartland. Our temperatures will stay below average for at least 9 to 10 days. We will also have a series of wind events that could reach advisory levels.
