Ben's Weather Forecast (updated Friday, Oct. 31st @ 7:00pm © 2014): WIND & WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR SATURDAY
Forecast remains on track as our first winter storm of the season continues sweeping down the California coast; currently entering Ventura & Santa Barbara counties. Increasing cloudiness and southwest winds kicking up 15-30mph with occasional gusts near 40 as our trough of low pressure approaches the area through midnight. Showers are expected to develop sometime after midnight as the main frontal boundary pushes into the area; the snow level may start off a tad high with a good southerly flow and decent orographic lift, maybe above 8,000 feet, before lowering to around 6,000 at some point Saturday morning as the cold front passes through, where accumulations above 6,000ft. of up to 1-3" are possible, maybe double that above 7,500ft.; but the ground has yet to freeze and snow will have a tough time accumulating after sunrise with plenty of sunshine peeking through breaks in the action. However, widely scattered showers will persist off & on Saturday into Sunday morning as the cold & unstable air mass settles into the region with another weak disturbance passing through the area; highs dropping into the 40's as lows even dip into the teens across some of our colder locations. This whole system will have departed the area by Monday with a cool, dry offshore flow expected through midweek; warming more substantially later in the period. If travel plans bring you into the mountain through this weekend travel with caution, carry tire chains and be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions.
