Rain and snow in LA and Vegas

Posted on | February 23, 2011 | No Comments

As fun as it is when it rains on celebrities at the Oscars, this year it looks like we will merely see the pencil-thin starlets shiver. The above icons in descending order represent the current National Weather Service forecasts for greater Los Angeles foothills, basin and coast respectively. Click here or on the top row of icons to be taken to the National Weather Service website. From Ken Clark’s AccuWeather blog forecast for Los Angeles: “A little rain could break out as early as Friday afternoon, especially from the Los Angeles Basin on north. But the most rain occurs Friday night, then becomes showery Saturday into early Saturday night with a couple of thunderstorms possible as well. Snow levels initially will be around 3,000 to 3,500 feet Friday night, locally lower interior mountains. Snow levels fall late Friday night and Saturday bottoming out at between 1,000 and 1,500 feet, but dropping as low as 500 feet in a heavy shower Saturday afternoon and evening.” His post, which is broken down by region, sees this for the Southwest: “I believe some snow will fall in Vegas, especially Saturday afternoon and early Saturday night. The greatest precipitation in Arizona comes Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.” Click here for the full report.
