"There will be a dipping in the jet stream over our area," said
weather specialist Curt Kaplan of the National Weather Service. "This
will result in a mostly cloudy day Saturday, with scattered showers
Kaplan said there will be a transition between two storms sometime
Saturday night. Weather reports indicated a second front moving in, which
could result in continued showers Sunday afternoon.
A dipping in the jet stream can cause a trough pattern that storms
follow. The expected results of this weather pattern Friday evening were
cooler temperatures and cloudy skies. Rain expectancy will be as low as
30% during the transition between cold fronts and as high as 90% when the
two fronts arrive in Glendale.
Kaplan added that 2 to 4 inches of snow were expected to fall at
elevations around 3,000 feet, with 5 to 10 inches possible at elevations
above 4,000 feet in Los Angeles County.
