There are still some scattered rain and mountain snow showers across southwest California today. Snow levels are dropping to 2500 feet, but most major highway passes remain west this afternoon. As temperatures fall early this evening expect roads to become icy and possibly snow-packed. Travel delays or road closures could occur over Interstate 5 at the Grapevine and Highway 33 above Ojai. Snow showers will taper off after midnight. A cool, but much sunnier day is expected for Sunday.

Active weather through Wednesday, focused later this afternoon through Wednesday morning. Expect plenty of mountain & interior road issues, accumulating small hail anywhere, gusty winds, maybe a stray thunderstorm. Best to avoid roads (especially mountains), hiking trails, and the ocean this afternoon through Wednesday morning if you can. If you are traveling in the mountains or interior valleys (like the Antelope Valley), bring extra supplies (like food and water) in case you are stuck in a road closure. Stay safe SoCal.

Good morning from your hard working Midnight shift (Rich and Dave).

The area is still on track for a cold storm system Tuesday and Wednesday. The inland track of this storm will limit the amount of moisture and therefore rainfall totals. Generally, most areas can expect less than 0.25 inches of rain although some local amounts up to 0.50 inches will be possible. On Tuesday night, there will be a slight chance of thunderstorms which could produce some small hail. This storm will be quite cold, dropping snow levels down to the 2000-3000 foot range. So, 2-5 inches of snowfall will not be out of the question for the mountains with possibly a dusting of snow in the foothills and even the floor of the Antelope Valley. Anyone traveling across the mountains (including the Grapevine and Highway 14) should be ready for hazardous winter driving conditions.

After this system rolls through, our computer models do not indicate any great chances of any significant precipitation into early March.

Stay tuned for the latest details on this upcoming storm. Have a great Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!

Good evening from your Swing Shift (Rich and Lisa).

Well, the Southern CA weather rollercoaster will continue for the next few days as Santa Ana winds return to the area late tonight. The strongest Santa Ana winds will be late tonight and Thursday, but some amount of northeasterly winds will continue through Saturday. With the offshore winds, warmer and drier conditions will return to the area.

Beyond that, there looks to be another shot of some showers next Tuesday or Wednesday. At this time, the details and confidence in timing/amounts/etc. is low. However, there is the potential for this storm to be pretty similar to the one yesterday.

Stay tuned for further details about the shower possibilities next week as we fine tune the forecast. Have a great evening!!!!!

Gusty northeast winds will affect the usual Santa Ana wind-prone areas of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties from late Tuesday through Wednesday. Areas affected include the L.A. County mountains, the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys, the Ventura County Valleys and coast, and the L.A. County coast from Malibu to the Hollywood Hills. The strongest winds will occur over the mountains where sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph will be likely. Slightly weaker sustained winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph will be likely across the valleys. For coastal areas look for wind gusts up to 35 mph at times possible by early Wednesday. These gusty winds, especially over the mountains and valleys, will bring the potential for hazardous driving conditions for high-profile vehicles and downed trees and power lines.

01/21/2022

Good afternoon from the Swing shift (Rich, Kristen and Carol). Well, the current round of Santa Ana winds have died down. However, another round of even stronger and more widespread Santa Ana winds is expected Friday night and Saturday.

Northeasterly winds will begin to increase dramatically late Friday afternoon across Ventura and Los Angeles counties and will continue to increase through Saturday morning. At this time, wind gusts of 50-70 MPH are likely across most sections of Ventura and Los Angeles counties with isolated gusts around 80 MPH possible. The northeast winds will also impact the Inner Waters from Ventura southward (with gale force winds possible) as well as east-facing harbors on Catalina Island. The winds will diminish Saturday night and Sunday, but gusts 30-50 MPH will still be possible across Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

As for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, the northeast winds will be weaker as is usually the case. However, there still be the potential for gusts 25-40 MPH Friday night and Saturday across the mountains and foothills, especially the Santa Lucia Range.

So, be prepared for the strong winds this weekend. Downed trees and branches, as well as power outages, will be possible.

Gusty northeast winds can be expected across the Santa Ana wind-prone areas of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties later tonight through Thursday, including the mountains and many of the valleys. Gusts between 40 to 50 mph can be expected during this event.

Even stronger north to northeast winds will affect the area Friday night and Saturday. There is the potential for damaging wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph across the L.A. and Ventura County mountains and foothills, with gusts 50 to 60 mph possible in many of the valleys. Even coastal areas from Ventura County through the L.A. County coast from Malibu to the Hollywood Hills could see wind gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range.

These winds could result downed tree limbs and power outages, damage to unsecured objects, and hazardous driving conditions for high profile vehicles.

Today marks the anniversary of the 1994 Northridge Earthquake.

#Earthquakes & #Tsunamis come with living in Southern California. In 2022, #ResolveToBeReady. Visit our page to find resources to help you prepare.

An earthquake is the sudden, rapid shaking of the earth, caused by the breaking and shifting of underground rock. Earthquakes can cause buildings to collapse and cause heavy items to fall, resulting in injuries and property damage. They happen anywhere and at any time.

The American Red Cross is facing a national blood crisis – its worst blood shortage in over a decade, posing a concerning risk to patient care.

Doctors have been forced to make difficult decisions about who receives transfusions and who will need to wait until more products become available.

Blood and platelet donations are critically needed to help prevent further delays in vital medical treatments.

During this blood crisis, the Red Cross asks the country to roll up a sleeve to help ensure people in their communities receive the care they need. Make an appointment to give blood or platelets as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
