Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Sunday, Feb 17 @ 05:31pm *** WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING ***
| An arctic low pressure system diving south into our area this evening will bring snow showers, we may see occasional breaks as waves of moisture move through, but when they do, the snow could be heavy at times. We're setting up for a potential backslider event with wrap around moisture, which tends to favor heavier snowfall accumulations across the eastern San Bernardino Mtns, including Big Bear. The snow level will lower to around 3,000 feet with several inches of snow likely, temps in the 20's with southwest winds gusting 15-30mph at times. Snow showers will continue through tonight, possibly heavy at times tapering off early Monday morning. Gusty southwest winds 20-40mph at times could drive wind chill values below zero, travel is not recommended in blizzard like conditions. The snow level may bottom out around 2,000 feet tonight with total snowfall accumulations of 4-8 inches expected above 3,000 feet with around a foot or more possible in a few locations. Snow showers should taper off tomorrow and we'll get a couple days off from our winter weather Tuesday & Wednesday. Continued cold throughout the week with highs in the 20's to lower 30's, while overnight lows remain in the teens to single digits, with a few locations dropping to near zero. One more cold winter storm is expected to arrive Thursday into Friday, after that, we may finally get a prolonged period to dry out! If you have travel plans into the mountains over the next week, plan ahead, check ahead on local weather and road conditions here and on socalmountains.com, travel with extra food, water and warm clothing in the event you become stranded and always carry tire chains!
