"with local totals up to three quarters of an
inch... especially in the mountains and foothills. Snow accumulations
of 3 to 6 inches are expected above 5000 feet... although some higher
totals are likely... particularly on northern slopes. Snow
accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible on the Grapevine and at
other elevations between 4000 and 5000 feet."
SATELLITE LOOPS SHOW THE EAST-PACIFIC TROUGH ALONG 133W EARLY THIS
MORNING. THE ASSOCIATED UPPER-LEVEL LOW HAS BECOME HIGHLY ELONGATED
AND THE VORTICITY AT THE BASE OF THE LOW COULD BECOME A SECONDARY
LOW IF THE SYSTEM SPLITS...AS THE MODELS PREDICT FOR THIS AFTERNOON.
FOLLOWING THE SPLIT...THE MODELS FORECAST THE SOUTHERN LOW TO DROP
SOUTH ALONG THE CALIFORNIA COAST...REACHING POINT CONCEPTION BY 12Z
/0400 PST/ SUNDAY. THE LOW THEN TURNS INLAND...WITH THE GFS TACKING
A MORE SOUTHERLY TRACK ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA THAN THE OTHER
MODELS WHICH TAKE THE LOW THROUGH KERN COUNTY SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
Courage is the mastery of fear; not the absence of fear.
