SCWXA Winter Weather Advisory In Effect For The Banning Pass Communities

A cold storm will bring a chance of snow, blustery conditions, and a prolonged freeze starting Thursday, with the freeze lasting through early this next week.

A very cold inside slider system will move into the region on Thursday. The onshore flow (southwest wind) combined with the colder air will bring the snow level down to around or just above the elevation for these zones.

Because of the nature of the system, totals will vary across the locations so you may see a dusting, others over an inch, and others ... maybe none at all.

Gusty winds will accompany the system.  Travel should be met with caution on I-10.

Remember, an advisory is not always snow.  if you are near the snow level you could get a mix and/or sleet.

In addition to the advisory, gusty winds will also be present, bringing wind chill factors below freezing in spots.

Furthermore, I've issued a Freeze Watch for the area, with temperatures well into the 20s after Thursday night, lasting for several days thereafter.  This is a prolonged and dangerous freeze event.
