Ben's Weather Forecast (updated Thursday, Oct. 30th @ 9:05am © 2014):
Another nice day today with some high cloudiness as a weak upper level disturbance passes through the area, highs will top out in the lower to mid 60's again this afternoon; light winds. We'll enjoy fair weather through Friday ahead of our weekend storm with a few high clouds and highs again making it into the 60's. Increasing clouds and winds later Friday, but should make it through all the Halloween festivities on a dry note. All bets are off after midnight Friday as to low pressure and associated cold front push into the area, rain and snow showers will be likely through Saturday morning, with a few residual showers possible into Saturday evening. Much colder and windy with southwest winds 15-30mph as highs plummet into the 40's, lows staying in the 20's, with a few area Saturday and/or Sunday night even touching into the teens for the first time this season. As far as precipitation totals go, this will certainly be our first widespread rain and snow event, but snow levels aren't expected to drop particularly low; starting off above 8,000 feet before bottoming out around 6,000 feet Saturday morning as the colder air arrives; which begs the question, how much precip will fall before we see a change over to some snow? Right now best estimates are for up to .25-.50 of rain then possibly 1-3" of wet snow, with locally more likely on some of the higher peaks around the valley, if snow levels drop sooner rather than later then numbers could be swayed in either direction, less rain = more snow or vice versa, but those are good ballpark #'s for the Big Bear area; expect double the rainfall down across the Rim communities. Skies will clear out by Sunday but temperatures slow to recover until midweek when highs creep back into the lower 60's with a dry offshore flow. If travel plans take you into the Mtns this weekend, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions and travel with care.
