...PACIFIC STORM TO IMPACT SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY...

A PACIFIC STORM APPROACHING FROM THE NORTHWEST WILL LIKELY BRING
STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS...RAIN...POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS AND MOUNTAIN
SNOW LATE TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

THE STORM WILL MOVE INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FROM THE NORTHWEST.
STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP TODAY AND CONTINUE INTO
WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE IN THE MOUNTAINS AND
DESERTS WITH GUSTS AROUND 50 MPH POSSIBLE AT TIMES.

EXPECT THE PRECIPITATION TO BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY AND CONTINUE INTO
THURSDAY...WITH AMOUNTS OF LESS THAN ONE TENTH ON WEDNESDAY MORNING
AND AFTERNOON. AMOUNTS INCREASE WEDNESDAY EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY
MORNING WHEN MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL FALL. RAINFALL TOTALS
FOR THIS STORM WILL RANGE FROM ABOUT ONE QUARTER TO ONE HALF INCH
NEAR THE COAST TO ABOUT ONE INCH AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS ON THE COASTAL
SLOPES BELOW THE SNOW LEVEL. THE UPPER DESERTS COULD SEE AMOUNTS OF
ABOUT ONE QUARTER INCH WHILE THE LOWER DESERTS WILL RECEIVE ABOUT
ONE TENTH OF AN INCH. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE LOCALLY VARIABLE
BECAUSE OF THE SHOWERY NATURE OF THE PRECIPITATION...AND LOCAL
FLOODING OF POORLY DRAINED STREETS AND LOW LYING AREAS IS POSSIBLE
AT TIMES DURING HEAVIER SHOWERS.

THE STORM WILL BRING COLD AIR FROM THE NORTH PACIFIC INTO THE AREA
AND RESULT IN THE SNOW LEVEL LOWERING TO BELOW 4000 FEET THURSDAY
MORNING. LITTLE ACCUMULATION OF SNOW IS EXPECTED BELOW THAT
LEVEL...BUT ABOVE 4000 FEET TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF THREE TO SEVEN
INCHES ARE POSSIBLE IN SOME MOUNTAIN AREAS. SNOW AND DENSE FOG WILL
REDUCE VISIBILITY TO NEAR ZERO IN THE MOUNTAINS AT TIMES WEDNESDAY
NIGHT AND THURSDAY...MAKING TRAVEL HAZARDOUS.

THERE IS ALSO A CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS WED NIGHT INTO THURSDAY
MORNING...AND SOME OF THESE STORMS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO
PRODUCE STRONG GUSTY WINDS...SMALL HAIL...FUNNEL CLOUDS AND
WATERSPOUTS.

THE PRECIPITATION WILL TAPER OFF LATE THURSDAY AND SHOULD END
THURSDAY NIGHT AS THE STORM MOVES TO THE EAST.

THE PUBLIC SHOULD STAY INFORMED ON THE LATEST FORECASTS.
