National Preparedness Level 1

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP:

***Local offshore winds Friday and Saturday***

***Much drier and warmer next week***  

Scattered light showers will continue over the southern half of the Sierras and across much of Southern California from the mountains westward. The precipitation should end by early afternoon, except across the Grapevine and Kern County Mountains where upslope flow will keep light precipitation going through the evening. Up to another tenth of an inch may occur in the Sierras with only trace amounts expected over Southern California. Clouds will decrease over most areas during the afternoon and temperatures should reach the 60s at the coast, lower 70s in the valleys to the low 80s in the desert.

Tonight, gradients will turn offshore which will allow winds of 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph to occur across Southern California. The strongest winds will likely occur from the Santa Clarita Valley toward the Oxnard plain. Slightly weaker offshore winds can be expected Saturday night and Sunday. Temperatures will climb toward 80 in the valleys of Southern California over the weekend. A weak trough entering the northern part of the state will result in cooler, onshore flow next Monday. All precipitation associated with this system will remain north of the area. Next week, high pressure is expected to build over the southern half of the state, resulting in sunny skies and well above normal temperatures. By next Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day, temperatures will be close to 90 in the valleys of Southern California. Minimum RH will drop toward 10 percent, but winds are expected to remain light for the most part. Cooler weather may return for the following weekend. No precipitation is expected after day through the end of the outlook period

 

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

A trough moving through the northern Great Basin will bring showers to the southern Sierra this morning and across Lincoln and northern Mohave Counties this afternoon. A cold front will move through the area today and is expected to reach southern Nevada by early this evening. Gusty southwest winds are expected ahead of the front with gusty northwest to north winds behind. Much cooler temperatures and dry conditions are expected over the weekend.

 

Eastern Sierra/Owens Valley

Snow will continue over the east slopes of the southern Sierra through Friday morning.

 

Accumulating snow will generally be confined above 9,000 feet MSL with several inches of new snow possible. Up to 2 feet of snow

is possible above 10,000 feet.

 

Light to moderate rain is possible in the Owens Valley through tonight

 

Rest of southeast CA, southern NV and northwest AZ

Southwest to west winds gusting 40-50 mph will be possible across southern Nevada today before spreading across San Bernardino

and Mohave counties on Friday. Gusts of this magnitude will be possible across these areas through Friday evening.

 

Strong downslope winds will be possible near the east facing foothills of the Spring Mountains.

 

As cold front passes FRI & SAT winds will become breezy out of the north, especially down the Colorado River Valley, with much

colder temps for the weekend.

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

BI-MONTHLY FUELS DISCUSSION

For Southern and Central California

 

Updated: Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Next Routine Update: Thursday, November 30th, 2017

General Discussion:

 

A deep low pressure area centered over the eastern Gulf of Alaska steered a series of troughs into the West

Coast during the past two weeks. This resulted in widespread wetting rains over the northern half of the state.

Most of the precipitation occurred north of the district, but the Central Coast and Sierras from Yosemite N.P.

northward have seen some significant precipitation this month. Snow levels have been above 7,000 feet for

the most part. Southern California has only seen trace amounts of rainfall, most of which occurred in the form

of drizzle or very light rain.

Fuel moisture has climbed across the entire district, except in a few areas adjacent to the desert. Dead fuel

moisture likely reached their lowest readings last month during the heatwave, even in areas of Southern

California which have yet to record significant precipitation this season. However, should warmer and drier

weather return, dead fuel moisture will likely return to well below normal readings from Santa Barbara and

Kern County southward.

A weather pattern typical of a weak La Nina is expected during the next few weeks. Significant rainfall will

continue over the northern half of the state while Southern California remains dry. But offshore wind events

are not expected to be strong or long lasting through the end of this month. Long range models indicate a

warmer weather pattern may set up during the middle to latter stages of December.

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Offshore winds the next two days will remain localized and will mainly occur during the nighttime through early morning hours, limiting large fire potential. Next week, warmer and drier weather will allow ignition components to be high once again over Southern California. Look for dead fuel moisture values to climb to above normal levels by next Wednesday or Thursday. However, a lack of wind should allow any new start to show modest growth. Clear skies, dry air and light winds should keep any fire activity very limited during the nighttime hours. There may be some light IA next Wednesday through the end of the week, but modest growth should allow new starts to be handled by local resources.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

2008: Santa Ana winds blew from 11/15 to 11/19. Winds gusted over 70 mph in the Santa Ana Mountains and over 60 mph in the northern Inland Empire. The Freeway Complex Fire burned from Corona through Chino Hills and Yorba Linda. Due to the fire 40,000 people were evacuated and State Routes 91, 71, and 57 were temporarily closed. Ultimately the fire would burn 30,305 acres, 361 structures and would injure 14 firefighters.

1986: An early season storm that started on this day and ended on 11/18 brought 1.16 inches of rain to San Diego, more rain than that which falls during a normal entire November. Other totals: 1.49 inches at Montgomery Field, 1.21 inches at Mt. Laguna, 1.07 inches at Miramar, 1.03 inches in Oceanside and 0.41 inch in Chula Vista. Numerous traffic accidents and a few power outages resulted. The San Diego River flooded causing many road closures in Mission Valley. Street flooding occurred in North Park, Midway, and in Encinitas. A mudslide blocked Malibu Canyon road. A traffic accident claimed two lives in LA.

1964: An oddly snowy month in Elsinore continued with one inch of snow on this day. A tenth inch of snow also fell on 11/10/1964. In the upper deserts, 2.5 inches of snow fell in Victorville, the earliest date in the season to record measurable snowfall. Cold temperatures accompanied the snow, with Palm Springs setting a record low for the month of 23 °.

1958: It was 10° in Idyllwild, the lowest temperature on record for November. This also occurred on 11/19/1964. It was also quite cold at the coast, where Newport Beach set a record low for November with a temperature of 34 °.

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 1) SYNOP: A storm centered over the Pacific Northwest will bring a period of rain to Central California through Friday morning. Heavy rain continues over the Central Sierra this morning with an additional 2 to 4 inches of rainfall through Friday morning. Rain will start over Monterey County this afternoon and spread south to Santa Barbara County by this evening. 1 to 2 inches of rainfall will occur along the Big Sur Coast and trail off to less than a quarter inch of rainfall over Santa Barbara County. Little or no rainfall is expected across Southern California from this storm. Westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will continue over windy mountain, desert, and Central Coast locations through Friday afternoon. There will be little change in temperature today, with mid 50s to mid 60s in the mountains and 70s to low 80s in the valleys. Temperatures will cool 5 to 10 degrees Friday as the storm moves to the east. Zonal flow will bring a little above normal temperatures Saturday through Monday. Local northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will surface across the Los Angeles County Mountains Saturday morning. Another storm moving into the Pacific Northwest will bring scattered showers with light rainfall accumulations to Central California Sunday night through Monday night. Above normal temperatures and low humidity will occur Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure over Mexico expands northward into Southern California. NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

A storm system moving into central California will bring widespread high elevation snow and valley rain portions of the southern Sierra and Owens Valley. There will also be some slight rain chances across Esmeralda, northern Lincoln, and northern Mohave Counties through tonight. The remainder of the area looks dry. Gusty south to southwest winds will likely develop this afternoon and continue through Friday.

 

SPECIAL NOTES:

A weak Santa Ana pattern will bring gusty offshore winds Friday night and Saturday. This will not be a strong event, but it will generate gusty north to northeast winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph in the San Bernardino and Orange County mountains and passes. Winds will be lighter in the San Diego County Mountains and Valleys. Warm and dry with lighter winds in all areas Sunday.

Weather Threats and Impacts:

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 3) SYNOP: A storm from the north will slowly drop southward causing light rain currently falling over the northern part of the Central Sierra to drop south to Tulare County by this afternoon and increase in intensity. Rain will start along the northern parts of the Central Coast tonight and work its way south during the day Thursday.  Light showers will be possible across Southern California Thursday night through Friday morning.  Through Friday morning, the Central Sierra and the Big Sur Coast will receive between 2 and 4 inches of rainfall.  Elsewhere across Central California, there will be less than an inch of rainfall and there will be little or no rainfall across Southern California with this storm.  This storm will also bring southwest to west winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph to the wind prone mountain and desert locations as well as windy locations along the Central Coast tonight through Friday morning.  Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees above average today, with mid 50s to mid 60s across the mountains and 70s to low 80s in the valleys.  Temperatures will cool a few degrees both Thursday and Friday and be near to a little below normal Friday.  A weak ridge will bring warmer temperatures and low humidity to most of the region Saturday.  Northeast to east winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will surface across the mountains of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties Friday night through Saturday morning.  A Pacific trough will work its way south along the West Coast Sunday into early next week bringing a little cooler temperatures to the area.  This trough will also bring showers to Central California with light rainfall accumulations.  NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry conditions with generally light winds are expected today with varying amounts of high clouds. A Pacific storm system will move into the region tonight bringing widespread rain and high elevation snow to the outhern Sierra into Friday morning. Gusty downslope winds are also possible this afternoon and evening for the  eastern Sierra slopes and far western Owens Valley. South to southwest winds will increase Thursday afternoon with a few showers possible over the far northern zones.

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 3) SYNOP: Zonal flow between low pressure over the Pacific Northwest and high pressure over Mexico will maintain near normal temperatures through Wednesday, with mid 50s to mid 60s across the mountains and upper 60s and 70s in the valleys. Westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface over the Tehachapi Mountains and eastward across the Central Mojave through Wednesday. There will be north winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph over Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine tonight. A Pacific trough will bring a cooling trend Thursday and Friday. This trough will also bring showers to Central California Wednesday night through Friday afternoon, with most locations expected to receive between a quarter inch and a half inch of rainfall. However, the Central Sierra and the Big Sur Coast will receive between 1 and 3 inches of rainfall. Possible showers will occur across Southern California Thursday night through Friday afternoon, with little or no rainfall accumulation expected. Westerly winds will become more widespread over the mountains and deserts Thursday and Friday. A weak ridge of high pressure will bring warmer and drier conditions to the area Saturday. Another Pacific trough will move into the West Coast Sunday and Monday spreading showers from north to south and causing temperatures to become below normal. NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

High clouds, light winds and slightly above normal temperatures can be expected today. A storm system will move into central California late Wednesday and Thursday producing widespread high elevation snow for the central Sierra and a chance of rain into the Owens Valley Thursday. Gusty downslope winds also look to develop Wednesday afternoon and evening over the eastern Sierra slopes and possibly the far western Owens Valley. Elsewhere, light winds today and Wednesday with increasing southwest winds Thursday with continued dry conditions.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

1964: A trace of snow was reported in Alpine, the earliest measurable snowfall on record. Trace amounts of snow also occurred in Campo. This was one of only two times snow has been recorded there during November.

1933: It was 100° in Santa Ana, the latest date in the season to record 100° or higher.

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

TROPICAL OUTLOOK

For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

A small, well-defined low pressure system located more than 1300 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing an area of showers and isolated thunderstorms near and to the northeast of the surface center. Upper-level winds continue to become less conducive for development, and are forecast to become quite unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation by Tuesday. This system is expected to move west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the open eastern Pacific during the next few days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 3) SYNOP: A weak ridge of high pressure will bring a little above normal temperatures to the region through Wednesday, with mid 50s to mid 60s across the mountains and upper 60s and 70s in the valleys. A Pacific trough will cool temperatures to a little below normal Thursday. North winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will surface across Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine tonight and Tuesday night. There will be westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph across the wind prone mountain and desert areas Tuesday morning through Thursday night. The trough will bring showers to Central California Wednesday night through Thursday night, with possible showers across Southern California Thursday night. Most of Central California will receive between a quarter inch and a half inch of rainfall, while most of Southern California will receive less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall. However, the Central Sierra and the Big Sur Coast will receive between 1 and 3 inches of rainfall with this trough. High pressure will build north from Mexico bringing a warming and drying trend Friday through this weekend. NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Dry southwest flow will remain over the area through mid week with temperatures several degrees above normal. Skies will remain mostly clear with occasional high clouds at times. A storm system will approach the area Wednesday bringing a chance of rain and high elevation snow to the southern Sierra Wednesday afternoon  through Friday.

 

Eastern Sierra/Owens Valley

Snow will likely develop over the east slopes of the southern Sierra late Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon.

Accumulating snow will generally be confined above 8,000 feet MSL with several inches of new snow possible.

Light to moderate rain is possible in the Owens Valley.

Strong downslope winds will be possible on sections of Highway 395 Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

 

Rest of southeast CA, southern NV and northwest AZ

 

Southwest to west winds gusting over 40 mph will be possible across the Mojave Desert region Thursday, especially over parts of

San Bernardino, Clark and northern Mohave counties.

Strong downslope winds will be possible near the east facing foothills of the Spring Mountains.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

2003: A thunderstorm dropped 5.3 inches of rain and hail in the Watts, Compton and South Gate areas of Los Angeles. The hail accumulated more than a foot deep in spots. Flooding damaged dozens of homes, schools and hospitals and some roofs collapsed under the hail. Hundreds of motorists were stranded and power was knocked out to more than 100,000 homes and businesses. Residents shoveled hail and slush from streets.

1999: It was 80° in Idyllwild, the highest temperature on record for November. This also occurred on 11/1/1999, 11/4/1980, 11/12/1967, and 11/2/1966.

1985: Heavy rain from a cold, slow-moving storm with embedded thunderstorms started on 11/11 and ended on this day. It produced 4.25 inches in Julian, 3.42 inches in La Mesa, 2.63 inches in SDSU, 2.44 inches in Vista, 2.40 inches in Lemon Grove, 2.39 inches in Alpine, 2.19 inches in Poway, 2.13 inches in Chula Vista, and 1.84 inches in San Diego. Flooding occurred in Spring Valley and Mission Valley, with erosion damage in La Mesa. The storm dropped 14 inches of snow in Mt. Laguna, five inches in Julian and through the San Gabriel Mountains. Light snow fell as low as Alpine (1800 feet elevation).

1968: Multiple waterspouts and funnel clouds were reported just of the coast of San Diego by mariners, pilots, and personnel at the San Diego Naval Air Station.

1961: Strong winds whipped up sand and dust in the deserts, causing a travel nightmare. In some areas the sand drifts were so bad that roadways and railroad tracks were temporarily closed so the sand could be cleared. West of the mountains the winds damaged roofs, cars, and billboards

TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:

For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

Satellite imagery indicates that the low pressure area located about 1200 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing widespread cloudiness and showers. Only a slight increase in organization would result in the formation of a tropical depression later today or tonight. By Tuesday, however,upper-level winds are expected become quite unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation to occur. This system is forecast to move northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the open eastern Pacific during the next few days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

1985: Heavy rain from a cold, slow-moving storm with embedded thunderstorms started on this day and ended on 11/13. It produced 4.25 inches in Julian, 3.42 inches in La Mesa, 2.63 inches in SDSU, 2.44 inches in Vista, 2.40 inches in Lemon Grove, 2.39 inches in Alpine, 2.19 inches in Poway, 2.13 inches in Chula Vista, and 1.84 inches in San Diego. Flooding occurred in Spring Valley and Mission Valley, with erosion damage in La Mesa. On this day a waterspout came ashore in Encinitas, becoming a tornado and leaving behind a trail of damaged homes and crushed greenhouses as it crossed I-5 before dissipating. It caused $250,000 in damage. The storm dropped 14 inches of snow in Mt. Laguna, five inches in Julian and through the San Gabriel Mountains. Light snow fell as low as Alpine (1800 feet elevation). On this day strong storm winds gusted to nearly 80 mph along the San Diego County coast. Lots of tree damage resulted, also power outages and roof damage in La Jolla. One tree fell on two cars in Hillcrest. Winds capsized a sailboat off Carlsbad, killing one.

1974: Santa Ana conditions warmed up Imperial Beach to 96°, the hottest in the nation that day, incredibly. It was 91° at San Diego.

1967: It was 80° in Idyllwild, the highest temperature on record for November. This also occurred on 11/1/1999, 11/13/1999, 11/4/1980, and 11/2/1966.

1953: For the second day in a row the low temperature in Riverside fell to 23°, the lowest temperature on record for the city in November.

1950: It was 30° in Santa Ana, the lowest November temperature on record (also occurred the previous day on 11/11, on 11/24/1952, and on 11/30/1948).

1941: 2.49 inches of rain fell in Escondido, the greatest daily amount on record for November.

1938: It was 14° at Descanso and 10° at both Palomar Mountain and Cameron (near Mt. Laguna). Chula Vista tied a record low for the month with a temperature of 33°.

1906: It was 105° at Craftonville (now Crafton Hills, near Redlands). This remains the national maximum temperature record for November.

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

TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:

For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

Recent satellite-derived wind data indicate that the low pressure system located about 1000 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is gradually becoming better defined.

Shower and thunderstorm activity is also beginning to show some signs of organization, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or so if this recent development trend continues. Bythe middle of next week, however, upper-level winds are expected become quite unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation to occur.

This system is forecast to move west-northwestward to northwestward across the open eastern Pacific during the next several days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.

***This product will no longer be issued weekends and holidays after this Saturday until next fire season or conditions warrant*** 

High pressure centered over Mexico will expand northward bringing a couple degrees of warming to the area each day through Monday. Maximum temperatures will be in the 50s to low 60s across the mountains and mid 60s to mid 70s in the valleys today. A trough will drop southward from the Pacific Northwest bringing a cooling trend Tuesday and Wednesday. This trough will also bring showers to Central California Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night, with most locations expected to receive less than a half inch of rainfall. No rainfall is expected across Southern California with this trough. Westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface across the wind prone mountain and desert areas Tuesday and Wednesday. The high pressure area over Mexico will reassert itself bringing slow warming late next week.

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

Light winds are expected today under weak high pressure. Southwesterly flow will increase on Sunday and Monday as next storm system approaches the Northwest with gusts of 20 to 25 knots possible across the  southern Great Basin on Sunday. Gusty winds across the southern Sierra will also be probable with higher winds expected to remain near the peaks. Temperatures will remain above normal with RH  values between 15 to 20 percent each afternoon.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

1997: An EF1 tornado touched down near the Irvine Spectrum Center, and continued on the ground for a quarter mile. The tornado wreaked havoc on a construction site and damaged numerous cars.

1994: An F0 tornado in Portola Hills knocked a mobile home on its side. Heavy rain also occurred in Orange County, resulting in multiple mudslides and damage to 15 homes.

1993: An F0 tornado in Portola Hills (near Tustin) knocked a mobile home on its side. Rain, though not especially intense, caused several debris flows from recent burn scars. In Laguna Beach, 15 homes were damaged, with six suffering extensive damage.

1985: Heavy rain from a cold, slow-moving storm with embedded thunderstorms started on this day and ended on 11/13. It produced 4.25 inches in Julian, 3.42 inches in La Mesa, 2.63 inches in SDSU, 2.44 inches in Vista, 2.40 inches in Lemon Grove, 2.39 inches in Alpine, 2.19 inches in Poway, 2.13 inches in Chula Vista, and 1.84 inches in San Diego. Flooding occurred in Spring Valley and Mission Valley, with erosion damage in La Mesa. The storm dropped 14 inches of snow in Mt. Laguna, five inches in Julian and through the San Gabriel Mountains. Light snow fell as low as Alpine (1800 feet elevation).

1982: Lake Cuyamaca reported a two- day snowfall total of 22.5 inches.

1978: 12 inches of snow fell in Palomar Mountain, the greatest daily snowfall on record for November.

1954: 1.79 inches of rain fell in Victorville, the greatest daily amount on record for November. Riverside got 2.11 inches, also a daily record for the month.

1950: It was 30° in Santa Ana, the first date of the season with a freezing temperature on record. It also marks the lowest November temperature on record. This also occurred the next day on 11/12, on 11/24/1952, and on 11/30/1948.

A weak area of low pressure located about 800 miles south-southwestof the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producingdisorganized shower activity. Little development is expected duringthe next couple of days due to unfavorable environmental conditions,but conditions could become a little more conducive early next week.

This system is expected to move west-Northwestward across the open eastern Pacific during the next several days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.

This product will no longer be issued weekends and holidays after this Saturday until next fire season or conditions warrant***

There will be very little change in the weather through the end of next week as our region lies in between low pressure over the Pacific Northwest and high pressure over Mexico. Westerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface across the wind prone mountain and desert areas through tonight and then again Monday through the end of next week. Gusty northerly winds will occur over Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine Monday night. Temperatures will be near normal, with 50s to low 60s across the mountains and mid 60s to mid 70s in the valleys. No rainfall is expected across the region through early next week and then some light showers may occur over Central California sometime during the middle to end of next week

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

Gusts of 15-20 knots out of the south to southwest and RH values between 15-25 percent are expected this afternoon for most areas. Slightly higher winds are likely across the western Mojave Desert as  gusts approach 25 knots today. Lighter winds expected for Saturday under weak high pressure before breezes kick back in on Sunday across the southern Great Basin ahead of the next storm system.

National Preparedness Level 1 

Southern California Area

Preparedness Level: (PL 2) 

Northern California Area

Preparedness Level (PL 3) SYNOP: A weak disturbance in a zonal flow pattern will bring scattered showers to the northern half of Central California this morning, with some showers lingering over the Sierra through this afternoon. Most locations will receive less than a quarter inch of additional rainfall today. West winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will surface across the Tehachapi Mountains and Antelope Valley eastward through the Central Mojave Desert through Saturday morning and then again Sunday night through the middle of next week. Gusty north winds will occur across Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine both Monday night and Wednesday night. Zonal flow will cause temperatures to remain within a few degrees of normal through the middle of next week. Maximum temperatures will be in the 50s to low 60s across the mountains and mid 60s to mid 70s in the valleys. NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Gusty, south to southwest winds are expected today and tomorrow across much of the area as a storm system makes its way onshore of the Pacific Northwest. Local impacts will be minor with no precipitation  expected and winds remaining between 10-20 mph gusting 20-25 mph. Slightly higher winds will be possible across the western Mojave Desert with lighter winds expected for Saturday and Sunday. Afternoon  RH values will remain between 15-25 percent for a majority of the  area through the weekend.

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

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:

2002: 5.68 inches of precipitation fell in Idyllwild, the greatest daily amount on record for November. Incredibly, no rain at all fell just on the other side of the mountain in Palm Springs.

1982: Seven tornadoes touched down in the LA Basin (2 F0, 3 F1 and 2 F2) during a six-hour period. Three of the tornadoes began as waterspouts off Pt. Mugu, Malibu, and Long Beach. The Long Beach waterspout-turned-tornado moved ten miles inland. Two of the tornadoes were in Garden Grove and Mission Viejo. Property damage occurred, especially with the Long Beach waterspout/tornado.

1956: This day is the latest recorded date in the year to reach at least 100° in Santa Ana.

1937: 2.68 inches of rain fell in San Diego, the fifth wettest calendar day on record and the wettest November day on record.

1917: It was 88° in Victorville, the highest temperature on record for November. This also occurred on 11/6/1980.

1914: In Bagdad rain finally fell on this day ending an incredible dry spell at 767 days that started on 10/3/1912 (Southern Pacific RR employees kept this debated record).

1879: 2.75 inches of rain fell on this day and on 11/10 in San Diego, the wettest 24-hour amount on record for November.
