    Brrr! Arctic Blast Headed for SoCal

    RSS KTLA News

    December 10, 2008

    LOS ANGELES -- A rare 50 year Arctic blast is on it's way to Southern California according to weather forecasters.

    Experts predict the cold weather pattern, which could extend from Alaska to San Diego, will arrive this weekend and send temperatures plummeting.

    Freeze warnings are already in effect for the desert areas of Southern California, including the Antelope Valley.

    OWSweather.com Meteorologist Kevin Martin predicts a 50 year event.

    While Martin is usually conservative on these events, the pattern highly favors it.

    "We are in a pre-1950 type pattern, "said Martin. "We know we are due for a winter storm sometime this year.

    The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region.

    With this, may come low elevation snow."

    Forecaster Cameron Venable is seeing very cold temperatures in the Los Angeles areas as well.

    Torrance is not usually known for winter weather, thus making this an interesting event for Venable to track.

    "Temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week, "said Martin. "With those type of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere.

    Our answer of the exact track will become more clear this week.

    All residents in the mountain communities should prepare this week for very cold, winter weather, with snow."

    Indications are a second, colder storm could hit near the 18th-22nd time-frame.

    The details on that will have to be sorted out.

    A warm November behind them, forecasters in Southern California are now preparing for cold storms to move into the region.

    One meteorologist examined the forecast models and said he knows they're due for a winter storm sometime this year. "The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region." Kevin Martin of OWSweather.com said. "With this, may come low elevation snow."

    He added that temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week. "With those types of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere."

    Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Phoenix confirmed that there is a massive pool of cold air over Siberia.

    The NWS said that system will affect the Valley this weekend and into next week.

    Along with that, they added the potential for snowfall in Arizona's high elevations, is likely.

    Re: West coast get your pipe thawers out,

    thanks bhd

    i'll swap from tee shirts to long sleeve tee shirts

    suppose to be in the mid 70's today

    a few years back, i had my first freeze call on a line on the roof feeding swamp coolers. funny part was i called my buddy steve and he had a few calls that day too. along with another plumber friend.

    i guess my $14.00 a month gas bill might go up if joey gets cold

    i just paid $102. to the gas co. this covers my $2. bill balance and a $100 credit. lets see if it will make it through winter

                  Sounds like the only global warming is centered around Rick and Joey.

                  You guys should go up and visit Vince. Maybe we should all go up and visit Vince. I'm sure it would be an education.

                    Boy it really is getting cold here. I may have to set a yard heater next to the spa soon. After jumping out of the 102 degree spa tonight the 20' to the house was almost unbearable.

                          when we did have a hot tub ,up until last year it was nice to go in it in the winter with the snow coming down .
                          then like you said it was not so nice to get out and put the cover and walk [ run ] to the house

                            It gets really chilly here once the sun goes down. We are already down to a balmy 63 degrees.
