A cold winter storm is forming off the coast of California today. Showers will intensify with a possibility of Thunderstorm. Low snow levels have forced the issuing of Winter Storm Warnings for the High Desert locations such as the Antelope Valley and surrounding mountains, and Winter Advisories for all other High Desert locations down to 2000ft through tomorrow midday.
For those areas not receiving snow, rain will be the story. Areas futher south will generally receive more precip
A COLD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CURRENTLY OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST WILL
MOVE INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TODAY...THEN SLOWLY MOVE TO THE EAST
BY LATE TUESDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING LIGHT TO MODERATE
PRECIPITATION...LOW SNOW LEVELS...AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY AND TONIGHT. WRAP AROUND MOISTURE WILL CREATE AN
UNUSUAL SNOW EVENT FOR THE ANTELOPE VALLEY TONIGHT AND TUESDAY
MORNING. CLEARING AND SLIGHT WARMING WILL FOLLOW WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY...BUT UNSETTLED WEATHER COULD RETURN BY THE END OF THE WEEK.
...SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS IN THE MTNS ARE FORECAST TO
BE 8 TO 14 INCHES...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE OVER THE
HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE SAN GABRIELS. SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS FOR THE
ANTELOPE VALLEY ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 6 TO 10 INCHES BETWEEN
TONIGHT AND TUESDAY...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE ACROSS
THE SOUTHEAST PORTIONS OF THE ANTELOPE VALLEY AND IN THE FOOTHILLS.
WINTER STORM WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR THE MOUNTAINS OF VTU/L.A.
COUNTIES THRU NOON TUE...WITH A WINTER STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT
FROM 10 PM TONIGHT TIL NOON TUE FOR THE ANTELOPE VALLEY.
This is shaping up to be a major winter storm for the high deserts, and especially the north facing foothills.

Looks like we have the potential for a cold cutoff low to come into California this weekend. The models seem to all be in agreement as to the timing, but differ on the amount of precipitation.
GFS is showing a colder and drier system while the NAM shows a slightly warmer, yet much wetter storm. Snow levels may be down to 3000-4000ft depending on which model you look at.
Highs for Palmdale/High Desert look to be barely reaching 50F on Friday/Saturday. The winds will also be an issue with gusts possible +75mph.
.LONG TERM (FRI-MON)...THE CHANCE POPS CONTINUE IN THE THURSDAY NIGHT TO FRIDAY PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED NEAR POINT CONCEPTION. THE COLD AIR BEGINS TO ARRIVE ON FRIDAY. LET ME SAY IT AGAIN. THIS IS A COLD SYSTEM WITH THICKNESS DOWN TO 532 AND 500 MB TEMPERATURES DOWN TO -28C...IN APRIL NO LESS. THE COMBINATION OF APRIL SUN AND COLD AIR ALOFT WILL RAISE THE POSSIBILITY OF A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE...WITH THE USUAL POSSIBILITY OF BRIEF HEAVY RAIN. A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE AFTERNOON FORECAST FOR FRIDAY. DUE TO THE EXTREMELY COLD AIR WE COULD SEE SNOW LEVELS COME DOWN TO AROUND 3000 FEET OR EVEN LOWER...IN APRIL NO LESS. THE SNOW COULD BRIEFLY REACH PORTIONS OF THE ANTELOPE VALLEY AND THE UPPER REACHES OF THE SANTA BARBARA MOUNTAINS. IT IS STILL TOO EARLY TO KNOW IF ALL OF THIS IS GOING TO COME TOGETHER AS ADVERTISED BY THE MODELS...BUT CURRENT MODEL CONSENSUS IS REMARKABLE.
