Preparedness Level: (PL 3) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Offshore winds today through Friday morning***

***North winds possible in Santa Barbara County and the I-5 Corridor Friday night into Saturday***

***Moderate offshore flow event again Sunday***  

A north-northeasterly gradient will bring the strongest winds to Ventura and northern Los Angeles County today where winds of 20-35 mph with gusts over 50 mph can be expected later today. Other areas, including the Cajon Pass eastward into the desert will see north winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph throughout the day. Minimum RH will continue to be very low, even in the Sierras (below 10,000 feet), with most areas seeing readings in the 3-8% range this afternoon. Late tonight into Friday morning, the flow will turn easterly which will favor areas from Orange County southward with the strongest winds. Expect winds of 20-30 mph with gusts over 50 mph through the Banning Pass, Santa Ana Canyon and much of San Diego County Friday morning before winds slacken during the afternoon. Another cold air surge moving into the West may bring gusty north winds of 15-25 mph with locally higher gusts to Santa Barbara County and the I-5 Corridor Friday night into Saturday morning. These winds should weaken quickly Saturday morning. Temperatures will generally be tracking downward through Saturday with highs back in the 50s in the mountains to the 70s at lower elevations by the weekend. Another burst of offshore winds will develop over much of Southern California Saturday night through Sunday. This particular event looks to be at least as strong as the current offshore wind event and may be a bit more widespread as well. All winds should weaken Monday. Some clouds may reach the Sierras Saturday and again Tuesday, but no significant precipitation is expected through the 23rd.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild weather will continue across the region  through the weekend with above normal temperatures expected. A cold  front will bring breezy to windy conditions to parts of the area  tonight and Thursday with breezy winds possible again on Saturday.

SPECIAL NOTES:

More critical fire weather conditions will be impacting Southern California. One

period of moderate Santa Ana winds will arrive Thursday morning and last through

Friday morning. Yet another Santa Ana is likely Saturday night-Sunday night.

 DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large potential will likely be highest today and again Sunday over Ventura and northern Los Angeles County, late tonight into Friday morning for Orange and San Diego Counties and the Inland Empire and for Santa Barbara County Friday night into Saturday morning. Gusty winds, extremely low RH and record low fuel moisture will allow explosive growth on any new start in the windy areas during peak heating hours. RH recovery will be poor most nights, except in the non-windy areas Friday night. Next week, cooler temperatures and lighter winds may lower the fire risk, but no real prospects for precipitation are on the horizon. Moderate to heavy IA will be possible through Friday, then lighter IA and resource demand is expected next week.

=====================================

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

1996: Santa Ana winds produced a gust of 111 mph at Fremont Canyon and a gust of 92 mph at Rialto. One man was killed when struck by a live power line and a second died when his car was crushed by a falling tree. Avocado farmers in San Diego County lost an estimated 1.5 million pounds of avocadoes.

1987: Strong Santa Ana winds all along the base of the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Mountains. In San Bernardino, winds gusted to 60 mph. Gusts up to 80 mph were reported around San Bernardino. One was injured when a tree fell on a truck. 80 power poles were blown down within a half mile stretch in Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga. Downed tree limbs damaged cars, homes and gardens. Power poles and freeway signs were damaged. A parked helicopter was blown down a hillside in Altadena. Avocado crop damage from winds hit Fallbrook. Over most of San Diego County the dry air led to low temperatures where the wind didn’t blow. It was 13° in Mt. Laguna, 18° in Campo, 23° in Valley Center, 24° in Escondido, 28° in El Cajon, 31° in Del Mar, and 33° in Chula Vista.

1967: A period of snow in the mountains began on 12/13 and ended on 12/19. The entire period of snow brought 50 inches to Mt. Laguna, 38 inches in Idyllwild, two feet to Palomar Mountain, and 12 to 18 inches to the higher elevations. The cold air following the initial front produced one of the coldest days on record on this day. It was the coldest day on record in Big Bear Lake, where the high temperature was 15°. One freezing death resulted, numerous schools and highways were closed, transportation was disrupted and there were power outages. Heavy rain that began on 12/12 ended on 12/15. There were two drowning deaths in San Diego County.

1920: Frost was observed at the bay side in San Diego.

National Preparedness Level 2 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 3) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Two moderate offshore wind events expected***

***Remaining very dry and warm through the period***

 

A light offshore flow covers the area this morning. The strongest winds are over Ventura and northern Los Angeles County where some gusts to 35 mph are occurring.  Look for relatively light offshore flow to continue throughout the day. But a weak low dropping into the Southwest along with surface high pressure over northwest Nevada will lead to an increase in offshore winds Thursday.  By daybreak Thursday, widespread offshore winds of 15-30 mph with gusts approaching 50 mph will be possible over Southern Califronia. The strongest winds will likely occur over the same areas of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.  In addition, the Sierras will see extremely dry conditions with localized, infrequent gusty winds west of the Crest.  Temperatures today will be in the 50s in the mountains to the 80s at lower elevations of Southern CA.  Temperatures may drop several degrees across inland areas Thursday, but it will be warm near the coast once again.  In addition, north winds of 20-30 mph will cover the Mojave Desert Thursday.  Minimum RH will continue to be extremely low with values below 5% in some areas the next few days.  Poor recovery can be expected each night.  A weak trough will lead to a brief resumption of onshore flow Friday night into Saturday which should allow one night of good RH recovery for most areas.  Southwesterly flow Saturday may lead to a substantial increase in smoke across the district.  Another low developing over the Southwest will lead to another round of moderate offshore winds Sunday.  Long range models indicate there may be chances for light precipitation in the Sierras beginning on the 23rd, but a widespread, significant precipitation event looks elusive at this time.

  NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild weather will continue across the region through the weekend with above normal temperatures expected. A cold  front will bring breezy to windy conditions to parts of the area tonight and Thursday with breezy winds possible again on Saturday.

North gusts 20-35 MPH behind the front through THU

FRI

Much lighter winds

 

SAT-SUN

Another cold front will push south across the area SAT. Gusty north winds will linger through SUN.

North Gusts 20-35 MPH

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will be high once again Thursday in response to the windy, dry and warm weather. Wind speeds should be similar to the event which occurred last Sunday.  Fuels are likely at record dryness levels as exceptionally strong drying conditions have occurred during the last 10 days.  Relative humidity levels yesterday were some of the lowest recorded in recent years with many locations reporting sub-5% readings.  Any new start has the chance to grow very rapid with crown runs possible in the heavier timber.  Between the two offshore events, onshore flow Saturday may result in shifting flame fronts and erratic fire behavior.  Moderate to heavy IA and resource demand can be expected through next Monday.

2014: A strong Pacific storm brought heavy rain on 12/12 and this day. Widespread rainfall amounts of one to 1.5 inches fell in the coast and valley areas. Mountain locations got up to four inches. River rises in the San Diego River resulted in a levee breach which flooded the parking lot of Qualcomm Stadium. Several other roadways in San Diego County were closed due to flooding with mud and debris in the road, especially near the Tijuana River Valley.

 

2012: Heavy rain from a winter storm spread rainfall across the San Diego metro area of 1.25 to 2 inches. The rain triggered an eight-ton, six-foot diameter boulder to roll into a Poway home. There were also numerous flood related issues on the roadways, including a few that required swift water rescues. High tide and flooding runoff combined to flood PCH in Seal Beach and Sunset Beach. Some garages were inundated.

 

 

2009: A winter storm brought strong winds to Apple and Yucca Valleys. Peak gusts approached 100 mph with numerous downed trees and power outages reported. Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall flowed through the Whitewater River Wash, causing the collapse of earthen percolation basin in Palm Springs. The resulting flow swept away three vehicles.

 

1995: Ocean swells of 15-20 feet from a storm over the north Pacific arrived along the coast. The historic Ventura Pier sustained $1.5 million in damage as 420 feet of decking and 150 pilings were torn away and washed up on nearby beaches. A funnel cloud was observed near Fullerton airport.

 

1994: Two waterspouts were observed about a half mile off Newport Beach.

 

1987: Strong Santa Ana winds blew. In San Bernardino, gusts topped 60 mph with some gusts up to 80 mph around San Bernardino. Strong damaging winds also hit San Diego County and 38 mph was recorded at San Diego. 80 power poles were blown down within a half mile stretch in Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga. One was injured when a tree fell on a truck. Downed tree limbs damaged cars, homes and gardens. Power poles and freeway signs were damaged. A parked helicopter was blown down a hillside in Altadena. Trees were blown down on power lines causing power outages in San Diego County. One was killed by a Eucalyptus tree falling on a truck in Spring Valley.

 

1967: Snow fell in the lower elevations on this day. A heavy snow event in the mountains also began on this day and ended on 12/19. At lower elevations on this day, six inches fell in Temecula, five inches in Fallbrook, 4.5 inches in Anza Borrego State Park (the greatest snowfall on record), three inches in Borrego Springs, two inches in Carlsbad and a light covering was reported over many San Diego mesas. The only other measurable snowfall on record in Borrego Springs occurred two days later (two inches on 12/15). The entire period of snow brought 50 inches to Mt. Laguna, 38 inches in Idyllwild, two feet to Palomar Mountain, and 12 to 18 inches to the higher elevations. Marble size hail hit Palomar Mountain from thunderstorms preceding the snow storm. One freezing death resulted, numerous schools and highways were closed, transportation was disrupted and there were power outages. Heavy rain that began on 12/12 ended on 12/15. There were two drowning deaths in San Diego County.

 

1932: A frigid storm hit the region on 12/12 and on this day. These days were likely the coldest on record in Southern California. On this day the high temperature in Santa Ana was 45°, the lowest maximum temperature on record. The high was 35° in Corona and 37° in Riverside.=========================================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT: There are no tropical cyclones in the Eastern North Pacific at this time. The Eastern North Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.

National Preparedness Level 2 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 3) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Light offshore flow to continue through Wednesday***

***Gusty north winds possible Friday night into Saturday***  

Offshore flow will continue to produce northeast winds of 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph, mainly this morning and again Wednesday morning. The winds will be strongest over Ventura and northern Los Angeles Counties. Temperatures will be up to 15 degrees above normal with highs in the 50s in the mountains to the upper 70s to lower 80s in the valleys and lower foothills through Thursday. Minimum RH will drop into the single digits in all areas except the highest mountain elevations and the San Joaquin Valley. A weak trough will pass north of the area Friday, finally bringing cooler temperatures and onshore flow. Southwesterly winds aloft will likely bring an increase in smoke from ongoing wildfires to the coastal areas. As the trough heads inland, there is a possibility of gusty north winds over Santa Barbara and northern Los Angeles County Friday night into Saturday morning. Moderate offshore winds will be possible next Sunday. No rain is expected through the period.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild conditions will continue through the weekend. Extremely dry air will keep minimum RH values in the single  digits, especially above 5000`. Overnight recoveries will be poor  through Wednesday night. RHs will increase slightly by the end of  the week. Periods of breezy north wind along the Colorado River  Valley will persist through the week, elsewhere light winds are  expected. These dry conditions will continue heightened fire  concerns with ample dry fuels this week.

SPECIAL NOTES: N/A

 DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will continue to be elevated across the entire area due to exceptionally dry fuels and warm, dry weather. The greatest chance of seeing a new large fire will continue to be across northern Los Angeles into Ventura County as well as the Santa Ana Canyon where winds will be strongest over the next two days. However, RH recovery may finally be good Wednesday night and Thursday due to light winds. The possibility of north winds late this week may cause ongoing fire activity to push aggressively southward. Offshore winds early next week may result in a return of high ignition components and very active fire behavior. IA may be moderate through Wednesday, then moderate once again over the weekend.

2014: A strong Pacific storm brought heavy rain on this day through 12/13. Widespread rainfall amounts of one to 1.5 inches fell in the coast and valley areas. Mountain locations got up to four inches. River rises in the San Diego River resulted in a levee breach which flooded the parking lot of Qualcomm Stadium. Several other roadways in San Diego County were closed due to flooding with mud and debris in the road, especially near the Tijuana River Valley.

 

2011: As many as five waterspouts were observed off La Jolla. Three off Windandsea Beach, and possibly two others off La Jolla Shores. Farther inland, a funnel cloud was spotted over La Mesa.

 

2010: Big Bear Lake reached 70° for the only time in December.

 

2002: Heavy rains from San Diego to San Bernardino caused low lying roads and creeks to flood. In Carlsbad, five women tried to drive across a flooded bridge, their vehicle stalled in the flood waters, floated downstream and overturned. Two escaped, the other three drowned.

 

1997: Santa Ana winds that started on 12/10 and ended on this day gusted to 96 mph (unofficially) at Pine Valley and 87 mph at Upland. The winds toppled hundreds of trees, damaged scores of homes and vehicles, blew big-rigs off the road, raised clouds of choking dust/sand, and snapped power poles, sending tens of thousands of customers into darkness. Two construction workers were killed, one in Riverside when a wind-blown panel knocked him off a water tower, and another in Irvine when he was struck in the head by a piece of wind-blown plywood. A fish farm in Sun City sustained $1 million in structural damage and avocado farmers lost 5.4 million pounds of avocados. Fashion Island’s 112-foot Christmas tree was stripped of its world’s-largest title, when a gust sheared 30 feet off the top.

 

1989: Strong Santa Ana winds impacted the region, wind gusts near 100 mph were reported near Grapevine and gusts to 80 mph occurred through and below the Cajon Pass.

 

1987: Strong Santa Ana winds blew in San Bernardino with gusts to 60 mph.

 

1967: Heavy rain that began on this day ended on 12/15. There were two drowning deaths in San Diego County.

 

1965: Hail up to four inches deep covered Pt. Loma.

 

1949: The temperature in Laguna Beach tumbled to 24°, setting a monthly record for December. Riverside also set a December record with a low of 21°.

 

1937: High surf ripped out three piers from LA to Santa Barbara.

 

1932: A frigid storm hit the region on this day and on 12/13. These days were likely the coldest on record in Southern California. On this day the high temperature in Palm Springs was 38°, the lowest maximum temperature on record. The high temperature was 34° in Redlands, 36° in San Bernardino, and 37° in Yorba Linda.=========================================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:There are no tropical cyclones in the Eastern North Pacific at this time. The Eastern North Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.

Thomas, Ventura County Fire Department. Unified command between Cal Fire IMT 1 (Derum) and

IMT 1 (J. Kurth). Seven miles east of Ojai, CA. Chaparral, and brush. Active fire behavior with uphill runs and backing. Numerous residences threatened. Evacuations, road, area and trail closures in effect.

 

The Thomas Fire is now the 5th largest in California’s History. Severe fire weather will continue to promote significant fire growth further into Santa Barbara County, threatening the communities of Montecito and Summerland. Gusty Santa Ana winds will continue to push fire to the west while very low fuel moistures, high temperatures and single-digit relative humidities will support fire growth on the west and north sides. Extreme fire behavior will continue to hamper control efforts. Firefighters will remain engaged in structure defense operations and scout for opportunities to establish direct perimeter control. Gusty northeast winds will cause the fire to threaten areas of the city of Santa Barbara. Fire will continue to threaten the communities of Carpenteria, Summerland, Montecito and surrounding areas. Evacuation operations will occur ahead of westward fire growth. Contingency groups will work to establish contingency line in Santa Barbara County in the areas of Windy Point, Camino Cielo and Foothills. Identification of potential control features in the north and east will continue.

 

Lilac 5, Monte Vista Unit, Cal Fire. Cal Fire IMT 1 (Gouvea). One mile east of Bonsall, CA. Chaparral, brush and tall grass. Minimal fire behavior with smoldering.

 

Skirball, Los Angeles City Fire Department. One mile south of Bel Air, CA. Brush and tall grass. Minimal fire behavior with smoldering

 

Creek, Los Angeles County Fire Department. Four miles east of Sylmar, CA. Chaparral, brush and tall grass. Minimal fire behavior with smoldering. Numerous residences threatened

 

Rye, Los Angeles County Fire Department. Four miles northwest of Santa Clarita, CA. Tall grass, chaparral and brush. Minimal fire behavior. Numerous structures threatened.

National Preparedness Level 2 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 4) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Gusty offshore winds today, decreasing late tonight***

***Continued warm and very dry throughout the week***

**Dry offshore flow to continue this coming week***

 

Offshore winds continue to be locally strong early this morning. Currently northeast winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph are occurring in the higher elevations of the Angeles and Cleveland National Forest.  These winds will mix down to lower elevations during the late morning hours, resulting in gusty winds in the passes and canyons.  Today, the strongest winds should occur over Orange and San Diego Counties where gusts exceeding 60 mph will be possible.  Offshore gradients driving the winds will gradually relax this evening which should allow winds to weaken slowly overnight.  However, offshore winds, although much lighter, will continue through the coming work week.  In general, winds of 10-20 mph with local gusts to 30 mph will be possible during the night and morning hours.  Light sea breezes may return to the coastal areas during the afternoon hours.  Temperatures will remain 15-20 degrees above average throughout the week with highs in the 70s to lower 80s near the ongoing incidents.  Minimum RH will crater each afternoon with readings reaching the single digits each day in all but the highest elevations and the San Joaquin Valley.  But RH recovery should be a bit better this week.  By Friday, a weak trough may push into the area, bringing a temporary cooldown and a brief resumption in stronger onshore flow.  No rain is expected through the period.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild conditions are expected to continue through the week. Extremely dry air at elevations above 5000 feet will result in single-digit minimum RHs with very poor overnight recovery over the high terrain (especially the Sierra). No significant winds are expect, however these dry conditions will continue heightened fire concerns with ample dry fuels this week.

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

BI-MONTHLY FUELS DISCUSSION

For Southern and Central California

Updated: Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Next Routine Update: Thursday, December 21st, 2017

 

General Discussion:

Thanksgiving was like much of the fall this year; hot and dry. Record high temperatures occurred over much

of Southern California as high pressure along with offshore winds brought strong drying conditions to the area.

Widespread 90+ degree readings were recorded over coastal and valley areas with sunny skies. This caused

fuel moisture values to drop back to record low readings after recovering a bit during the middle of last month.

The first full week of December brought one of the strongest offshore flow events in recent years. Wind gusts

surpassed 80 mph on December 5th and 7th and RH dropped below 5% over many areas below 7,000 feet.

Several large fires exploded in response to the very dry and windy conditions with extreme fire behavior over

most incidents. Rates of spread were tremendous and the wind driven fires caused crews to perform rescue

operations as opposed to direct attack. Air resources were grounded much of the time due to the extreme

winds. The explosive fire conditions well past the normal time of year when fires cease to occur is a dramatic

example of the dryness of the fuels and the overall health of area vegetation.

Long range models offer little hope for precipitation. A strong ridge is expected to remain stationary along the

West Coast the rest of the month which will keep the storm track far away from the state. A high amount of

initial attack and resource demand is likely through the 21st of December, if not longer.

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will continue to be high today, especially across San Diego County where gusty winds will reach all the way to the coastal areas. While the potential for new large fires will be much lower for Monday and beyond, daily transitions from offshore to onshore winds may lead to erratic winds and shifting flame fronts in ongoing fires.  A few places may continue to see thermal belts and limited active burning at night, but overall, expect less active fire behavior in coming days.  Heavy IA and resource demand is expected today, but less activity may free some resources late in the week.

1997: Santa Ana winds that started on 12/10 and ended on 12/12 gusted to 96 mph (unofficially) at Pine Valley and 87 mph at Upland. The winds toppled hundreds of trees, damaged scores of homes and vehicles, blew big-rigs off the road, raised clouds of choking dust/sand, and snapped power poles, sending tens of thousands of customers into darkness. Two construction workers were killed, one in Riverside when a wind-blown panel knocked him off a water tower, and another in Irvine when he was struck in the head by a piece of wind-blown plywood. A fish farm in Sun City sustained $1 million in structural damage and the SoCal’s avocado farmers lost 5.4 million pounds of avocados. Fashion Island’s 112-foot Christmas tree was stripped of its world’s-largest title, when a gust sheared 30 feet off the top. Boats were damaged and sunk at Coronado and Avalon.

 

1989: Strong Santa Ana winds produced gusts to 100 mph near the Grapevine. The winds reduced visibilities to near zero in the desert areas, and closed major interstate highways east of Ontario.

 

1985: A cold storm starting on 12/10 and ending on this day brought heavy snow to the mountains and light snow to lower elevations. 17 inches fell in in Mt. Laguna, 15 inches in Julian, 12 inches in Palomar Mountain, and up to 4 inches in Victorville and Warner Springs. Highways and schools were closed in the mountains and in parts of the upper desert.

 

1972: The high temperature in Victorville was 32°, the lowest high temperature on record. This also occurred on 1/30/1957 and 12/15/1957.

 

1943: A big storm brought copious rain to all areas and setting numerous daily rainfall records. 3.28 inches of rain fell in Riverside, the greatest daily amount on record in December=========================================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:There are no tropical cyclones in the Eastern North Pacific at this time. The Eastern North Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.

National Preparedness Level 2 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 4) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Santa Ana Wind Increasing Tonight and Sunday***

***Warm and very dry through next week***

High pressure centered over northern California will provide the local region with warm and dry weather along with periods of offshore winds through at least the end of this upcoming week. The next ramp up in Santa Ana winds will occur this evening and overnight, reaching a maximum Sunday morning with speeds in the 20 to 30 mph range, especially across San Diego County. Wind gusts by Sunday morning will exceed 60 mph across the Santa Ana Range and over the Cleveland National Forest. Winds will rapidly diminish Sunday night and Monday with some reversal in winds along the coast on Monday. Winds will be light across the central portions of the state during the next 7 days. Very dry conditions can be expected over all the region with humidity values generally between 5 and 15% over Southern California and 10-25% over Central California. Temperatures will generally be in the upper 50s to upper 60s in the mountains, with 70s to low 80s in the valleys (warmest locations over Southern California). Another surge in winds will be possible Thursday and Friday as a disturbance drops south into Arizona. The anticipated winds over the next 24 hours, and late next week, will not be as strong as compared to this past week.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild conditions are expected to continue through the next week. Significant drying at elevations above 5000  feet is expected today into early this week, resulting in very low  RHs (well below zero) over the high terrain (especially the Sierra). While winds do not appear to increase in those areas during this  period, these conditions will still increase fire concerns with ample dry fuels into next week

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

With the extended period of dry and windy weather over Southern California, the moisture content in the dead fuels is approaching record low levels. Live fuel moisture should be increasing by now, but has instead remained nearly steady or even has lowered a little in the past few weeks. With the expected increase in Santa Ana winds over the next 24 hours, large fire potential will be high across portions of Southern California through at least Sunday. Once the winds subside, the potential for large fire will lower, but remain elevated due to the continued warm and dry conditions through next week. Monday, winds may transition to local or diurnal wind patterns which may result in different parts of any new or existing fires becoming active, or the possibility of shifting flame fronts. Lighter winds next week may afford a better opportunity for air resources to be utilized. IA will be heavy through the weekend, then moderate next week.

1999: A wind gust of 60 mph was reported at Palm Springs.

 

1998: Santa Ana winds started on 12/9 and ended on this day. Gusts reached 101 mph at Modjeska Canyon, 93 mph at Fremont Canyon, 52 mph in Santa Ana, 83 mph in Ontario. Across the northern Inland Empire numerous downed trees and powerlines were reported and power was knocked out to 180,000 customers. Seventeen trucks were blown over along Interstate 15 and Highway 60. Blowing dust forced the closure of Ontario International Airport.

 

1997: Santa Ana winds that started on this day and ended on 12/12 gusted to 96 mph (unofficially) at Pine Valley and 87 mph at Upland. The winds toppled hundreds of trees, damaged scores of homes and vehicles, blew big-rigs off the road, raised clouds of choking dust/sand, and snapped power poles, sending tens of thousands of customers into darkness. Two construction workers were killed, one in Riverside when a wind-blown panel knocked him off a water tower, and another in Irvine when he was struck in the head by a piece of wind-blown plywood. A fish farm in Sun City sustained $1 million in structural damage and avocado farmers lost 5.4 million pounds of avocados. Fashion Island’s 112-foot Christmas tree was stripped of its world’s-largest title, when a gust sheared 30 feet off the top. Boats were damaged and sunk at Coronado and Avalon.

 

1985: A cold storm starting on this day and ending on 12/11 brought heavy snow to the mountains and light snow to lower elevations. 17 inches fell in in Mt. Laguna, 15 inches in Julian, 12 inches in Palomar Mountain, and up to 4 inches in Victorville and Warner Springs. Highways and schools were closed in the mountains and in parts of the upper desert.

 

1965: 1.36 inches of rain fell in San Diego in one hour, the greatest one hour rainfall on record.

 

1943: 3.80 inches of rain fell in Palm Springs, 70% of the station’s yearly average rainfall in one day. It is also the third greatest daily amount on record. 2.56 inches of rain fell at San Diego, the eighth greatest daily amount on record, and the second greatest daily amount on record for December.=========================================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:There are no tropical cyclones in the Eastern North Pacific at this time. The Eastern North Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th

National Preparedness Level 2 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 4) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

…CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE IN MOST AREAS

THROUGH SUNDAY…

…ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WITH VERY DRY AIR FOR MUCH

OF NEXT WEEK…

.DISCUSSION…

Surface high pressure over the Great Basin will bring periods of

moderate to strong east to northeast winds through Sunday. Elevated

fire weather conditions will persist for much of next week with low

inland humidities and weaker and more localized northeast winds near

the coastal foothills and below passes and canyons.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry and mild conditions are expected to continue through the next week. Significant drying at elevations above 5000 feet is expected through this weekend, resulting in plummeting RHs over the high terrain (especially the Sierra). While winds do not appear to increase in those areas during this period, these  conditions will still increase fire concerns with ample dry fuels  into next week.

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

Weather Summary: 

Santa Ana winds will continue this weekend (after briefly lighter winds this afternoon and evening).  This will combine with very low humidity (5-10% minimums during the days away from the coast and poor nighttime recovery) to bring hazardous fire weather conditions.  Red flag warning continues until 8 PM Sunday for most areas from the mountains west to the coast (except 8 PM Saturday in coastal Orange County).

 

Wind Details: 

Winds will gradually increase again Saturday through Sunday morning. Most of the windier locations will have 20-30 MPH winds with local gusts 40-50 MPH at times through Sunday, but the San Diego County mountains and foothills could have local gusts 55-65 MPH Sunday morning.  Therefore, the high wind warning has been expanded through 4 PM Sunday for parts of San Diego County.  Strongest winds will be just west of the mountain crests and through and below passes and canyons.

 

Winds will diminish late Sunday and Sunday night, but offshore flow will continue to bring low humidity for most of next week.

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will remain very high through the weekend due to offshore winds, low RH and very warm temperatures. There may be another surge in initial attack and resource demand Sunday due to stronger offshore winds. Ongoing fires may see significant growth on Sunday as well. Monday, winds may transition to local or diurnal wind patterns which may result in different parts of the fire becoming active, or the possibility of shifting flame fronts. But lighter winds next week may afford a better opportunity for air resources to be utilized. IA will be heavy through the weekend, then moderate next week.

2013: Strong offshore winds peaked at 86 mph at Fremont Canyon.

 

2007: A snow storm on 12/8 and on this day was nothing unusual except in the San Jacinto Mountains where 17 inches fell in Pine Cove.

 

1998: Santa Ana winds started on this day and ended on 12/10. Gusts reached 101 mph at Modjeska Canyon, 93 mph at Fremont Canyon, 52 mph in Santa Ana, and 83 mph in Ontario. Across the northern Inland Empire numerous downed trees and powerlines were reported and power was knocked out to 180,000 customers. Seventeen trucks were blown over along Interstate 15 and Highway 60. Blowing dust forced the closure of Ontario International Airport.

 

1985: Strong storm winds of at least 35 mph hit the San Diego County coast. Several boats in Mission Bay were capsized. Numerous trees were downed causing power outages, one on a car on Hwy. 163, another on a parked car in Coronado.

 

1982: Heavy rain in eastern San Diego County that started 12/8 ended on this day. Flooding resulted, and it was disastrous in Ocotillo.

 

1963: Heavy snow fell in the mountains. Five were killed and six were injured. Highways were blocked.

 

1960: It was -14° in Big Bear Lake, the lowest temperature on record for December.  1898: A waterspout was observed off Mt. Soledad – La Jolla and Pt. Loma for 10 minutes. This was considered the first such thing in history on this stretch of coast. Heavy rain caused the railroad to be washed out and a half mile of it was covered in mud in Rose Canyon, near Pacific Beach. A trestle in Chollas valley was washed out, causing “several hundred dollars” in damage=========================================================================TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:There are no tropical cyclones in the Eastern North Pacific at this time. The Eastern North Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th..

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 4) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Offshore winds through the weekend, becoming stronger once again Saturday night through Sunday*** ***Warm and very dry through next week***

Winds this morning have slackened off significantly, but some gusts exceeding 40 mph are blowing at higher elevations of the Angeles and Cleveland National Forest. These winds will mix into the valleys and foothills by late morning and widespread windspeeds of 15-25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will be possible in all areas from Ventura County southward. At ongoing incidents, there may be a rapid transition from light winds this morning to northeasterly, offshore winds once any local morning inversions mix out. High temperatures will climb a bit today with highs reaching the mid 80s along the central coast all the way south to the Mexican border. Minimum RH will continue to be in the single digits in all areas except the highest mountain elevations and the San Joaquin Valley. Another round of stronger offshore flow is expected Saturday night into Sunday when east-northeast winds of 20-35 mph with gusts approaching 60 mph will be possible. The strongest winds during this period may occur in San Diego County. Winds may briefly become light Monday. Offshore winds may increase a bit next Tuesday or Wednesday, but overall, expect lighter winds next week. Temperatures may trend downward slightly over the weekend due to an increase in high clouds, but expect highs to remain 10-15 degrees above normal through the period. Minimum RH will remain extremely low each afternoon. No rain is expected at least through the 20th.

   NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

A strong area of high pressure along the West Coast will slowly expand over the western states this weekend and hold through at least early next week. This will provide dry and mild weather with temperatures gradually rebounding well above normal. North breezes will persist in parts of the Colorado River Valley into next  week.

SPECIAL NOTES: N/A

 DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will remain very high through the weekend due to offshore winds, low RH and very warm temperatures. There may be another surge in initial attack and resource demand Sunday due to stronger offshore winds. Ongoing fires may see significant growth on Sunday as well. Monday, winds may transition to local or diurnal wind patterns which may result in different parts of the fire becoming active, or the possibility of shifting flame fronts. But lighter winds next week may afford a better opportunity for air resources to be utilized. IA will be heavy through the weekend, then moderate next week.’
