It's gonna snow! It's gonna snow!
Tom Tcimpidis, Granada Hills weather man,
said last night:
North of Point Conception, the snow level will be down to just above the ocean by midday Saturday. Here in Granada Hills Saturday, the snow level should be from 1,000 to 1,500 feet and the temperature high around 43 degrees. After midnight Saturday the snow level should be from 1500 to 2000 feet and the temperature will be around 33 degrees. So, depending on where you are in Granada Hills (I’m at 1,430 feet) and the eventual track the storm takes, it is certainly possible that we may see some snow. However, it is unlikely that any of it will stick substantially as it did in 1978, except at the higher elevations. I’d say there is a 60 percent chance of snow based on the current data.
Then, this morning, Tcimpidis sent this update:
Based on the weather system’s current track and data, the probability of visible snow and the possibility of accumulation thereof has increased for Granada Hills…
Did you hear that?! He promised it would snow! He promised! Christmas is coming!! Get out your sleds!
