...SIGNIFICANT RAIN EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA
FOR LATE NEXT WEEK...


A STRONG AND COLD UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE
EASTERN PACIFIC OCEAN IS EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO THE REGION BETWEEN
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY NEXT WEEK. THIS STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO
BRING A PERIOD OF HEAVY RAINFALL TO MUCH OF SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA
BETWEEN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT. WHILE THIS SYSTEM HAS MUCH
COLDER AIR ALOFT THAN THE SYSTEM EARLIER THIS WEEK...THERE IS A
POTENTIAL FOR LOWERING SNOW LEVELS TO BETWEEN 4000 AND 5000
FEET AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.

ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY WITH THE TIMING...THE
POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN IN COASTAL AND VALLEY
AREAS...WITH 3 TO 5 INCHES IN THE FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS SOMETIME
BETWEEN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT. RAINFALL RATES AROUND ONE HALF
INCH PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH SYSTEM. IN ADDITION...THE
COLDER AIR MASS ALOFT COULD ALLOW FOR ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO
DEVELOP AND PRODUCE RAINFALL RATES IN EXCESS OF ONE HALF INCH PER
HOUR. RAINFALL RATES OF THIS INTENSITY COULD BRING THE THREAT OF
FLASH FLOODING AND MUD AND DEBRIS FLOWS TO LOCATIONS IN AND AROUND
RECENT BURN AREAS.

THE SNOW LEVEL NEAR 8500 FEET ON THURSDAY MORNING WILL DROP TO
BETWEEN 4000 AND 5000 FEET BY FRIDAY MORNING. SNOW COULD IMPACT
TRAVEL ON THE TEJON PASS ON INTERSTATE 5 AND SOLEDAD PASS ON
HIGHWAY 14 IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY. IF TRAVELING THROUGH MOUNTAINS
LATE NEXT WEEK...WINTRY DRIVING CONDITIONS SHOULD BE EXPECTED.

GUSTY SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP BETWEEN WEDNESDAY
NIGHT AND THURSDAY NIGHT...ESPECIALLY ACROSS HIGHER TERRAIN WHERE
GUSTS OVER 50 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE. DANGEROUS CROSS WINDS COULD
DEVELOP FOR MOTORISTS TRAVELING ACROSS THE AREA...ESPECIALLY FOR
THOSE DRIVING HIGH-PROFILE VEHICLES.

RESIDENTS ACROSS THE SOUTHLAND...ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO LIVE NEAR
THE RECENT BURN AREAS...SUCH AS THE COLBY AND SPRINGS BURN AREAS
SHOULD MONITOR THE LATEST NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECASTS AND
STATEMENTS ABOUT THIS POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM.

LISTEN TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL MEDIA OUTLET
FOR THE LATEST UPDATES ON THIS STORM SYSTEM.
