“UNSEASONABLY COLD WEATHER WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY”

I thought it said unreasonably cold weather, with which I certainly agree.

Believe it or not the long range forecast has another storm for the following Wednesday. Unusual to say the least for Southern California.

We have the most boring weather here in north San Diego county, it’s either sunny (not complaining) or cloudy with rain or drizzle (i really hate drizzle). But we never get thunderstorms, I’d like a thunderstorm or two once in a while.

I went up valley about 23 miles to practice casting a new line with a rod that is hard to master.

The wind came up from the NW at about 2:30pm, and even the seagulls, ducks and mergansers stopped flying.

We are expecting rain tonight and probably a lot then and tomorrow.

We have been threatened with rain all day but Cape Medocino seems to be shielding Humboldt Bay as the rain has come ashore near the mouth of the Klamath...

I wish this had happened around here this past weekend....we had that horrendous "Coachella Music Festival", and all the druggies got to enjoy perfect low 90's and calm weather.

More and more of us locals are wishing for them to either experience 110 degrees or on the flipside, a huge spring wind event.

Yesterday at the end of the lunch hour, we had a Santa Anna type wind from the SE which warmed this area up to the high 70’s.

We had windows open last night and a couple of sliding glass doors pegged up a couple of inches. The heat never came on this morning.

It is suppossed to get in the low 80’s today.

Bring on the Global Warming, we are tired of low grade winter during our spring.

Of course the volcanoes are anti green and will cause more Global Cooling this year with their ash clouds.

Send some of that heat up here! I read a story yesterday saying the skies have never been so blue over England due to the grounding of the air fleets and the clearing of the jet exhaust in the atmosphere. My first thought was wouldn’t that lead to Gorebul sWarming.

So what’s new about that? We have been getting rained on every week this winter, we just had a storm this Tuesday that rained through Thursday, one more again next week isn’t going to hurt. We are way over normal rainfall with the stupid government still screaming drought. Just another way to impose control on the people’s republic of CA.

“Snowed 33 inches just south of Denver yesterday.”

Damn Gorebull warming will kill of us by freezing us to death.

We have a winter storm warning for N California:

A winter like storm system is forecast to move onto the northern California coast late Monday and then sweep across the rest of northern California Monday night and Tuesday. This system has the potential to bring significant rainfall to the lower elevations and significant snowfall to the mountains above the 5000 to 6000 foot range. The heaviest precipitation with this system is now expected during the day on Tuesday as the main part of the system moves through.

Scattered showers may continue behind this system
through Wednesday. Total rainfall amounts could range from one third of an inch to around an inch for the Central Valley with the highest totals over the eastern and northern parts of the valley.

One to two inches of rain are possible for the foothills and
mountains with up to two feet of new snow possible at the highest elevations of the Sierra Cascade Range.

Snow levels will initially be high at over 7500 feet then drop to around 4500 feet over Shasta County to near 6000 feet for the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada during the afternoon on Tuesday.

As colder air filters into the area... snow levels will drop
further with snowfall possible down to the 2500 foot level over Shasta County to around the 3000 foot level for the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Tuesday night and Wednesday. Little or no snow accumulation is expected at those lower elevations.

In addition to the rain and snow... strong winds are expected with this system. The northern Sacramento Valley could see wind gusts above 30 mph. Winds over higher elevations of the mountains could gust up to 40 to 50 mph Monday night and Tuesday. The combination of wind and snow could bring white out conditions at times over the higher mountain passes of the Sierra Nevada on Tuesday.

Those with outdoor activities planned from Monday night through Wednesday should be prepared for inclement weather. If planning to travel in the mountains... be sure to carry tire chains and check the latest Road and weather reports before departure.

We have a winter storm warning for N California:

Now that CA has climate change legislation--you and trophy wife numero uno will not have to worry about such storms. Just pay those extra taxes and the world's climate will be forever better.

Soon the rest of us will chip in an extra 200-300 per month and everything will be perfect.

Isn’t this the way life should be. Spend yourself into bankruptcy and have others bail you out while you continue to spend money totally out of control.
