Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Monday, Feb 18 @ 09:53pm
Looking at dangerously cold temperatures out there tonight, the moon is full and beautiful, but bundle up if you're headed out as we are headed for zero-degrees overnight! Tuesday will be another chilly day out there, with more sunshine we'll get a chance to thaw out some with highs in the mid to upper 20's, northwest winds around 15mph at times & low wind chills. Wednesday our next major winter storm will be on approach with clouds and winds increasing throughout the day, highs still in the 20's, a chance of snow showers developing by later afternoon. This next storm looks very similar to our last, except it will be colder and have a little more moisture to work with, so a stronger system with potentially higher accumulations. Expect snow Wednesday night into Thursday, the snow could be heavy at times as the snow level falls to around 2,000 feet, possible lower. And just like our last storm we'll be dealing with a 15:1 snow/water ratio, so it will be the nice, light snow and should really pile up with at least 4-8" expected, locally a foot or more possible in a few locations; a Winter Storm Watch will likely be issued within 24hrs. Temperatures will stay well below average throughout the week so take precautions to prevent frozen pipes, etc. as we're in a prolonged, hard freeze. There is some light at the end of the tunnel as snow showers will taper off Friday with our then departing storm, making way for fair and warmer weather over the weekend. In fact, temperatures will finally break the freezing mark for the first time in a week towards Sunday with dry weather expected into next week, for now. If you have travel plans into the mountains over the next week, plan ahead, check ahead on local weather and road conditions here and on socalmountains.com, travel with extra food, water and warm clothing in the event you become stranded and as required by law-always always always carry tire chains!
