Californians - report your winter lows here

Oceanside airport continues to blow. 34F! It was 42F at my house. Being 40 ft above the river channel saved me 12F.

I wonder what Gonzer's lows have been like? He's pretty much in the bottom of the San Luis Rey, like the airport.

Terry,

What's frustrating is that there are several stations in the foothills of Camp Pendleton [ie. Las Flores] that regularly record minimums 10-15 warmer than most of Oceanside. :( lucky Marines!

Geez- I think I hit 37.9 in back this morning. :huh: Very still. 39.9 up front. I'll say 40, it sounds better.

Zone 10a at best after 2007 AND 2013, on SW facing hill, 1 1/2 miles from coast in Oceanside, CA. 30-98 degrees, and 45-80deg. about 95% of the time.

Interesting spread of temperatures today. Winds went essentially neutral last night & a very light marine flow moved ashore a mile or two. A low inversion of fog kept maximums cool near the ocean but inland temps were similar to yesterdays's values. Tonight offshore winds resume again for warming tomorrow. Rain is looking like a real possibility late this week.

A pattern I've been watching and noting in the in the cards system since the last week of January is becoming apparant and the weather outlook from our org was released in the light of this storm into California.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY

FEBRUARY 1, 2009 4:25pm Pacific Time

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ...

THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY HAS ISSUED A HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK. ...

IN THE CARDS SCENARIO ONE HAS SHOWN A GRADUAL CLIMB IN CONSISTENCY IN MODEL AND PATTERN DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM SLATED AROUND FEBRUARY 5TH. THIS OUTLOOK IS TO GIVE YOU A HEADS UP THAT WE ARE LOOKING MORE AND MORE INTO A STORM SYSTEM IMPACTING THE AREA.

SOME KEY THINGS ABOUT THIS SYSTEM:

IT WILL NOT BE SUPER WARM.

IT WILL HAVE AVERAGE HEIGHT SNOW LEVELS.

IT HAS "POTENTIAL" TO BE A SOAKER WITH HEAVY RAIN / MTN SNOW.

IT ALSO HAS THUNDERSTORM DYNAMICS, SOME OF WHICH COULD BE SEVERE IN PARTS OF THE FORECAST AREA.

THE SYSTEM HAS ENOUGH DYNAMICS FOR STRONG WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS, INCLUDING ALONG THE INITIAL FRONTAL ZONE.

IF THESE CAN HOLD, WE ARE LOOKING AT A "POTENTIAL" CATEGORY THREE OR FOUR SYSTEM ON THE SCWXA OFFICIAL SOCAL WINTER STORM SCALE.

WILL NOT JUMP ON HARD DETAILS YET UNTIL IT GETS CLOSER, HOWEVER A LOT POINT TO THIS ARRIVING AROUND THE 5TH.

WINTER STORM KUMAR IS PENDING ...

Californians beware! The shift in the pattern is about to happen just as Kevin predicts. Remember the cold & wet weather we had in December? It's back :wacko: [in a few days].

It looks so good. From closed low to open wave right before it hits so that is good for some kind of severe thunderstorm activity. Finally, the real deal dynamics. Could get some high winds along the initial from depending where it hits.

I've been so busy moving files across the computers here to the new computer I just got built that I haven't had enough time to update. Looks like we will need snow/flood/wind/severe/marine type watches up. The works, lol.

We need the rain, but it's the clear night skys after the fronts pass that I worry about. The last several weeks have been nice with above average daytime temps. Today will be my last warm day with a high of around 70. My low this morning is 36F which it has been for the past several nights. Clouds will be moving in tomorrow. Winter is not over yet, but at least Jan is behind us.

You may very well see waterspout / funnel / small tornado activity in the region yes. Haven't seen good dynamics like this for a few years and probably 2004-2005 season type.

STORM WEATHER STATEMENT

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY

FEBRUARY 3, 2009 10:15am Pacific Time

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ...

THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY HAS ISSUED A STORM WEATHER STATEMENT EFFECTIVE NOW ...

WINTER STORM KUMAR HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY NAMED BY THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEATHER AUTHORITY. KUMAR HAS BEEN GIVEN A FULL CATEGORY FOUR STORM, A MODERATE TO STRONG STRENGTH SYSTEM AND WILL HIT ON THURSDAY FROM MORNING TO EVENING ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. DETAILS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

WINTER STORM KUMAR'S DYNAMICS LOOK WONDERFUL FOR RAIN ON A REAL DEAL SCALE AND WE WILL NEED A SLEW OF WATCHES IF THE TREND CONTINUES. WATCHES ARE IN PENDING MODE RIGHT NOW FROM SNOW TO RAIN.

THE FRONTAL ZONE LOOKS TO HOLD THE BEST LOW LEVEL FORCING DYNAMICS ACROSS THE VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE AREA BY THURSDAY MORNING BEFORE SUNRISE. THE FLOW IN THE LOWER LEVELS MAY BE STRONG ENOUGH FROM THE SOUTHEAST TO BRING A TEMPORARY DRYING TO THE LOS ANGELES ZONES FOR THE RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC AS THE HEAVY RAINS HIT VANDENBERG AND SANTA BARBARA.

THROUGHOUT THE MORNING THURSDAY THE FRONTAL ZONE WILL SLIDE EASTWARD, IMPACTING VENTURA MID-MORNING AND FINALLY EASTWARD TO ORANGE COUNTY, THE INLAND EMPIRE, AND SAN DIEGO BY AFTERNOON. MOST FRONTS COME IN DURING THE NIGHT, HOWEVER THIS LOOKS LIKE A DAYTIME IMPACT SO WILL LEAVE IT AT THAT UNLESS TRENDS CHANGE.

THE SNOW LEVELS WILL BE ABOVE 6,500 FOR THE FRONTAL ZONE AS SOME TROPICAL MOISTURE WILL BE TAPPED INTO THE SYSTEM. KEEPING THEM AROUND 6,500 TO 7,000 FEET WITH POSSIBLY SIGNIFICANT SNOW AT SNOW LEVEL.

THE FRONTAL ZONE DYNAMICS ARE THAT OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY AND WE WILL LIKELY NEED CONVECTIVE (SEVERE OR TORNADO) TYPE WORDING AS THE FRONTAL ZONE NEARS.

WINTER STORM KUMAR IS TWO POINTS AWAY FROM A CATEGORY FIVE STORM.

SCWXA - Socalweather.Org

A Special Weather Statement; or in some cases Storm Weather Statement, may be issued when a pending event is coming. If an event is coming up weatherwise for a larger region, this will be issued.

Question for you Happ:

How does all this warm weather affect soil temps? Should we expect an earlier spring? Will the ground hold more water? Will the beneficial microbes become active earlier?

Thanks,

David, I don't measure soil temps [Epicure & the Matt's may be able to help you]. Early spring will occur so long as it stays warm. Long-term models have consistently been advertising below normal temps & some rain for California. Cold soil holds\ retains water. I have no knowledge of microbes.

Where is it raining it was cool today [almost 20 degrees cooler in some areas] but minimums were fine. Rainfall may not be as much as we would like or need but thunderstorms could dump a lot of water in a short period of time. Since these are systems spinning out of the Gulf of Alaska the air mass is cold & clear nights during this period could easily fall into the 30's in the usual calm regions :unsure:

The trajectory of the storms is a more offshore path that turns east south near Pt Conception. Picked up 1.56 thus far with more rain into Saturday. The trough is north\south so the next few storms will be increasingly cold & snow levels down to 2500' in SoCal :o Frigid temps are heading our way.

It's clear, cool and breezy in N. Calif today. Forcast highs for the rest of the week are in the 50's and lows in the 30's, maybe one night with frost. Unsettled weather with off and on rain showers, so if it's cloudy at night the lows will be higher. Not really a very plesant week to look forward too, but at least nothing severe. This is winter in N. Calif.

Today's temperatures reflect the very cold polar air mass conveyor belt of storms. Periodic heavy showers\ some thunderstorms & hail. Tonight may be clear enough to create frost in calm regions so beware. All the rain has been great though!

Tonight and tomorrow night are the coldest in any of the extended forecasts. I'm looking at possible lows of 36F tonight and 34F tomorrow. Nothing to freak out over, but sometimes it's colder than predicted. Bringing the tenderest pots in for hopefully the last time this Winter.

I have you and the valley in a frost advisory oside...

Also UJEAS has been consistent since February 1st in the continued Northwest flow for the storm pattern.

(See here) http://www.socalweather.org/UJEAS/2009/2/ujeasfeb09.html

As noted in the UJEAS forecast, between the 14-21 a SW flow will establish, bringing the tropical fetch into the region for a lot of needed rain.

I trust UJEAS is going to be right about this as well so the long range is very good for storms.

AACCKK! I just saw 34F out back this morning! Windshields frozen, but any water on the ground, etc. is still "liquid". 35F up front. :angry:

THIS is why I won't plant until into March!

Zone 10a at best after 2007 AND 2013, on SW facing hill, 1 1/2 miles from coast in Oceanside, CA. 30-98 degrees, and 45-80deg. about 95% of the time.

I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

Bottomed out at 29.8, and covered in frost. I'm glad I have not gotten too adventurous with my planting. My biggest problem is the darn false spring we had caused some of my cycads to flush. Now some will end up with crummy looking flushes.

Clear and cold in Walnut Creek this morning. The temp. is 32.5F and a white frost. It never warmed up yesterday with a high of only 54F. Clouds are supposed to move in tonight and rain off and on for the next week and cool temps. Feb. might save us from the drought yet.

Wow, this morning was a bit of a surprise. It's 4.5C (40F) right now and some of the dew on my car roof is a little slushy...

The roof tops down below me have some patchy frost.

That's bold BS, I usually wait until April...

Wow 40 for you Jack, that's cold!

For me, top of hill:

38.5F out in the open (matches my coldest reading ever)

41.5F under canopy

In Lemon Grove at the office:

37F under a patio, so I'm estimating 34F out in the open.

I was looking at the sky yesterday afternoon, and the clouds were coming from the north moving to the south, not northwest to southeast. Very unusual flow, I think.
