Cold Storm To Move Into The Area On Monday

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley)- – Another cold storm system from the Gulf of Alaska is moving south into Southern California late tonight and tomorrow. In the High Desert we could see a quarter inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service in San Diego (NWS).

“The heaviest precipitation would be on Monday, and you’re probably going to see a quarter inch of rainfall, a little bit more when you get closer to the foothills,” said Alex Tardy with the NWS in San Diego. “Snow level could get down to 4000ft. It may briefly get down as low as 3500 ft on Monday evening.”

The mountain areas should see 5-10 inches of snow above 5000ft, and probably around a foot for the ski resorts says Tardy. “Wrightwood would probably get the most. It would be a situation not like the last storm. Wrightwood would get more than Big Bear in this one.”

The Victor Valley will see wind with this storm, but not very strong, according to Tardy. Wind gusting to 40 mph could kick up as early as this afternoon, but certainly Sunday night.

This storm is expected to move slowly, lingering still on Tuesday before moving out of the area completely by Wednesday.

Another cold front is possible by friday which could bring wind and showers.
