Good Tuesday morning, 

Today we will start out calm, but wind and cold air is coming this afternoon.

Everyone will feel the changes this afternoon, first with wind then cold, followed by wet.

The winds will begin to pick up on the central coast this afternoon and then arrive in our area later in the day and tonight. Winds from the north should be 35 to 45 miles an hour in our area, and mountains 50 to 60 miles an hour. Some LA mountains 80 miles gusts possible an hour.

Overnight the snow level will drop to 1500 to 2000 feet, with a light dusting of snow possible in the mountains, but the air is still pretty dry, so a dusting is all that is affected. Wednesday the winds will calm, but it will still be breezy. It will be chilly with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s and 40s. 

Thursday we will start to see the rain chances increase, but it is Friday and Saturday when we get the real rain. The models are in fair alignment with the lows trajectory being over the water. This means a good storm Friday and Saturday. Rain is projected 2 inches coastal and 4 inches in the mountains. Snow above 4000 feet will be measured in the feet. 12 to 18 inches above 4000 feet. The snow level Friday night will drop to 2000 to 2500 feet.

Models are still figuring out Saturday into Sunday. They can not decide if the rain will end Saturday afternoon or go into Sunday. Regardless this will be a good storm with another slated for Tuesday into Wednesday next week.

Where February has been very quiet for rain - snow, it will go out with a bang. 

Remember all those tarps all over town, well it is time to check them Wednesday after wild winds tonight. March is fast approaching, but the end of February will cast memories with very low snow levels.

………… Is Spring coming soon? For the record, I am read!

Enjoy the Action!
