SYNOP:

Dry weather will continue into Thursday with weakening high pressure aloft. Weakening offshore flow will become weakly onshore for Monday through Wednesday. The marine layer will return and slowly deepen with higher coastal humidities spreading intothe valleys. Well above average high temperatures today will cool for Monday and Tuesday to a little above average with minor day to day changes for Wednesday and Thursday. For late Thursday night through early Saturday…a low pressure system will move through California bringing strong onshore flow with cooling…strong gusty west winds in the mountains and deserts…and chances for lower elevation rain and mountain snow with light to locally moderate amounts.

 NWS LAS VEGAS – (NORTH & EAST OF BARSTOW TO STATE LINE)

High pressure will remain over the area through the weekend leading to a continuation of above normal temperatures and  dry weather. Breezy, northerly winds are expected across the Colorado River Valley through Sunday night. High pressure weakens early next week allowing for a more active pattern Tuesday through the end of the week.

 Fire Potential Discussion: There will be little or no fire activity across the region through the forecast period.

ON THIS DAY:

2007: A cold snap settled over Southern California. Some remarkable records were set, particularly on 1/13 and on this day. -7° at Fawnskin, -2° at Big Bear City and Wrightwood, 5° at Hesperia and Mt. Laguna, 10° at Borrego Airport, 12° at Campo, 16° at Ramona, 18° at Thermal, 19° in Hemet, 20° at Camp Pendleton. $114.7 million in crop damage in San Diego Co. $86 million in Riverside Co. $11.1 in San Bernardino Co. $600 thousand damage from broken pipes in San Bernardino Co. All three counties were declared disaster areas.

2005: Extreme runoff from nearly a week of heavy rainfall forced the emergency release of water from Prado Dam into the Santa Ana River. Hundreds of residents had to evacuate and Corona Municipal Airport was flooded. Planes were moved to nearby streets to escape the flooding.

 

1997: A storm that began on 1/12 and ended on 1/15 brought 18 inches of snowfall to Mt. Laguna. Generally 18 inches to three feet of snow was reported above 2500 feet. The ski resort at Snow Valley remained open until 5/18, the latest in its 78 year history. 13 illegal immigrants die from exposure near Pine Valley.

 

1995: A heavy rain storm hit the northern Inland Empire. It dropped eight to nine inches of rain in Yucaipa, causing extensive flooding and road closures.

 

1993: A very wet series of storms that began on 1/6 and ended on 1/19 produced 20 to 50 inches of precipitation in the mountains and up to 12 inches at lower elevations over a two week period. It was one of the longest periods of consecutive days of rain on record (14) and measurable rain fell nearly every day from 1/2 to 1/19. Flooding and flash flooding, mud slides, etc., resulted. On this day, an F1 tornado struck the city of Buena Park, blowing out windows and downing trees, fences and street signs. No injuries were reported.

 

1990: A tornado in the East City Heights neighborhood of San Diego caused property damage. A waterspout turned tornado hit Shelter Island – San Diego and tossed boats.

 

1978: Starting on this day and ending on 1/15, 2.65 inches of precipitation fell in San Diego, the greatest 24-hour total on record for January.

 

1963: Sub freezing low temperatures gripped Southern California for a second consecutive day, damaging local citrus, avocado and flower crops. All-time record low temperatures were set in Elsinore (15°), Oceanside (20°), and Chula Vista (24°). It was 22° in Palm Springs, the second lowest temperature on record.

 

1952: A series of storms brought heavy rain and mountain snow to the region starting on 1/13 and ending on 1/18. 5.52 inches fell in San Bernardino over the six days. Flooding was reported in Upland and Ontario. Heavy snow hit the San Bernardino Mountains with 40 inches in Lake Arrowhead (with a snow depth of 46 inches), and 37 inches in Big Bear Lake. All mountain roads were blocked and closed because of snow slides.

 

 

1949: The high temperature of 46° in Santa Ana was the lowest high temperature on record. This also occurred on 1/19/1949 and 2/23/1953.

1916: Widespread heavy rains hit Southern California starting on this day and ending on 1/21. 8.5 inches fell during this period in San Bernardino. 16.71 inches fell in 24 hours at Squirrel Inn (near Lake Arrowhead) on 1/16 and on 1/17, a record 24 hour rainfall for California until 1943. More than nine inches fell in two storms in the Coachella Valley. Previous storms had deposited deep snow in the mountains, adding to the runoff. Widespread flooding resulted and at least 22 died. Roofs in Chula Vista, poultry farm in Vista, boats in Coronado and Newport were damaged. Most cities were completely inundated. Pine trees from Palomar Mountain floated down the San Luis Rey River through Oceanside. The cities of Indio, Coachella and Mecca were underwater. Ontario and Redlands were isolated and roads, railroads and bridges were washed out.

 

1882: A cold winter storm that started on 1/1 and ended on this day brought lots of snow to the lowlands. 15 inches of snow fell at San Bernardino. 3 feet of snow fell in Campo over four days and produced 8 foot drifts in spots. Two to five inches fell in outlying San Diego, including four inches along Poway Grade, 3 inches at El Cajon and one inch in Poway. 5 inches fell in Riverside. Light snow fell in Del Mar. Snow flakes fell, but did not stick at San Diego Lindbergh Field. Birds and livestock were killed, telegraph lines were knocked down and citrus crops were damaged.

National Preparedness Level 1

 Thomas Fire

Goleta, Calif., January 12th, 2018 — For Immediate Release.

Start Date: December 4, 2017 Cause: Under Investigation Size: 281,893 acres

Containment: 100% Personnel: 13 Structures Destroyed: 1,063 Structures Damaged: 280

Current Situation: After the over flights yesterday, the Thomas Fire is now at 100% containment. The forest closures within the footprint of the Thomas Fire remain in effect until further assessments can be made and deemed safe for the public to re-enter. Los Padres National Forest would like to thank all the first responders and cooperators that responded to this incident over the last month and giving up the opportunity to spend the holidays with their families and the sacrifices they made. We would also like to thank the local and surrounding communities for their understanding and support during this time.

Wildfires exacerbate the potential for debris flow and are most likely to occur during high intensity rainfall. Debris flows can be extremely dangerous. There is currently a closure order that covers the burned area and surrounding areas as well. This order includes trails within the burned area. Please adhere to the closure order and stay out of the forest until Los Padres National Forest deems it safe for the public to reenter the area. Also, please be mindful on any notices and warning put out by our cooperators, Santa Barbara Office of Emergency Services and Ventura County Office of Emergency Management.
