They still have another five days to flip & flop. Maybe just go with one of the old 300 hour forecasts and it will be good. ;)
Tues./Wed. does look like the bigger storm 1.5"? Saturday maybe a tenth if that.
....I'm just going to wait a couple of hours before I take a look again.

I forget, have any of them been underwhelming when they finally came in? I thought we'd gotten more surprises on the wetter side this season.

As I remember they have been forecast at coming in at 300 hours, flip flop, then at a day or two day out the same 300 hour forecast comes into fruitation. At least the majority have been this way if I remember correctly this season. I thought they were pretty much on track heRe.
...but then again with that being said I've seen Braveheart about nine times and I still don't remember the ending. :o

Wait am I reading that chart right. The second storm seems a little stronger because the totals are higher. Or am I supposed to be taking the difference between the two.

I took a quick o/n hike into the SAs to break in the hammock. Trailhead by 3:30 and "hanging out" by 630 to catch the sunset, basin light up, fog roll in.

So lets play Name this Weather Station! #wxgeekfieldtrip
Hint. Thats Catalina back there.
Hint II. This area burned and just reopened a few months ago after 2yrs.

Geology and botany man.

Purples are the color in the SAs this year, and it is not prime yet. Still budding out. Next weekend or beyond w this next precip chance. I only saw 1 (one) poppy flower, and a handfull of paintbrush orange and reds, but a half dozen different purple flowers blooming en mass.

For Wed.

If the last few runs of the GFS verifies amounts
would be well underdone especially across eastern Los Angeles
County. Snow levels during this time may drop to resort levels to
around 7000 feet with a few inches of snow possible above that
level.


A third cold front is
expected to pass through Southwest California Saturday with
showers developing out ahead of it as early as Friday evening to
the north of Point Conception. Increasing clouds, increasing
onshore flow and lowering height will once again support below
normal temperatures Saturday. Moderate rainfall amounts are
currently most likely with this system. Snow levels will likely be
lower then the previous two systems with resort level snows
likely.


The forecast precip. increased to .75" for me tomorrow.

My qpF for Tues/Wed is somewhere between .73" and .92".
Sure is a flat day for the first day of Spring.

Qpf for the first storm looks good, I'd say surprisingly good, for SoCal.
