SoCal Something Like December Weatherrr

Postby 2NAKLLR » Sat Dec 01, 2012 3:39 pm

I got to say the San Gabriels have better dirt than most of OC. Rode GMR ->Monroe TT -> GMR -> Mystic trails and it was the top of the upper echelon of dirt conditions. As we rode up we saw GMR in the sun, but when we reached the gate, it was fogged/clouded in again and was so all the way back down. Just perfect. Even saw some b'ar tracks up pretty high.

Saw Tinker Juarez rollin' on the roadie when we got to the end of Mystic, where we parked.

I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

Dirt in Wrightwood was fantastic today, absolutely fantastic.

Don't plan on anything but rain. I'm extremely impressed with Bear, they must have made a ton of snow, I went to MH today and it's pretty much all gone on the lower mountain.

Cheaps what's the word on lower snow levels? Will they stay low as the front moves down?

I've had light, misty rain since 1pm today, with temps in the lower 60's. From my experience, we need temps in the upper 50's here in Claremont to get snow on Baldy, and mid to lower 50's to get snow at resort levels. At least this light, steady rain helps the ground soak it up without too much runoff.

Sorry havent really been following that aspect. Satellite makes me think the bigger worry is that the front completely dies before it gets to LA and points south. Its not drizzling here anymore.

I'd rather it died off quickly than rain on any snow that's left.

The front is near Ventura and it should make light showers for the LA/OC areas, washing out before San Diego and most of the Inland Empire. Snow levels are 7,000 feet ahead of the front but with the center of the front expect those to rise to 9,000 feet or even higher. Not a snow event.

Long Range suggests major snow-storms will make their way down to Southern California after the 16th-18th of this month.
