Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Monday, Jan 16 @ 08:50am
An upper level low about 500 miles to our south will open up into a long wave trough and move eastward across central Baja, reinforcing the onshore flow and sending nothing more than just some high clouds in our direction today, otherwise looking a nice start to the week before a series of winter storms take aim on the area later this week. Expect daytime highs to top out in the mid 40's today through Wednesday, while overnight lows cool to the teens and 20's. Wednesday will be our transitional day, with increasing clouds and winds by afternoon as our first storm in this next series approaches. Rain and snow showers will be likely on Thursday as low pressure moves in from the west; this may be a tad warmer system and moderate in strength; pushing the snow level to above 6,000 feet. Two more systems drop in from the north Friday and Saturday, these should be colder with Friday's storm also stronger, which will keep snow showers going Friday into the weekend. The snow levels will fall to around 4,000 feet where at least 1-2 feet of snow is possible through the weekend. Lastly, the strongest storm in this series is forecast to arrive Monday with more significant rain & snow expected. Things are still in the development stage, but confidence is growing we'll see locally heavy rain and snow by weeks' end; the forecast will be refined as the week progresses. If traveling to the mountains, always be prepared for winter driving conditions and always carry tire chains as weather can and will change very rapidly.
