Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Thursday, Jan 19 @ 02:07pm **WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING **
Our first storm system has passed east of the area, dropping 4-8 inches of snow across most areas above 6,000 feet, 4 inches towards the east end of the Big Bear Valley, increasing westward with closer to 8" at 9,000 feet; residual moisture will keep a few scattered snow showers around through this afternoon. Continued cool & windy with southwest winds gusting 20-30mph with temperatures in the lower-mid 30's. Clouds and winds increase again tonight as our next storm is set to arrive tomorrow bringing more snow, locally heavy at times; daytime temperatures will remain in the 30's with lows in the 20's. This next system will be colder and pack quite the punch with the snow level down to 4,000 feet, where upwards of a foot or more is possible through Saturday morning; travel not recommended in areas of blowing & drifting snow with blizzard like conditions. Snow showers may decrease some headed into the weekend, primarily Saturday, but residual moisture and strong onshore flow will keep things cold and unsettled. Our 3rd and final storm in this series should hit us sometime Sunday and could be the strongest yet with more heavy snowfall possible Sunday into Monday, before finally ending Tuesday. Additional accumulations of 1-2 feet are possible early next week. The jet stream lifts back to the north midweek, at least temporarily, giving us a chance to dig out! If traveling to the mountains over the next week, be extremely be prepared for harsh winter driving; carry extra food, water & warm clothing in the event you become stranded and always carry tire chains, as weather conditions will change rapidly.
