"High Wind Warning!

San Bernardno County mountains (does include Big Bear Lake)."

A message on my phone earlier today from Brad, on a ridge, a few hours hiking from Big Bear Lake, informed me it looked like a storm.  Yep.  A storm it is and pretty darn cold.

Ben's Weather Forecast (updated Friday, May 25th @ 7:00pm © 2012):
A late season trough of low pressure moving through the area will bring us gusty winds and unseasonably cold temperatures starting off the Memorial holiday weekend with even a few snow showers possible tonight with little to no accumulation expected as low dip into the 20's. Cold Saturday with northwest winds 10-20mph as highs struggle to get up near 50 degrees. A little warmer Sunday with highs creeping back into the 60's, nearing 70 on Memorial Day, as lows continue drop into the 20's. Fair, dry and warmer weather returning throughout next week. 

When it's just a tarp between you and the weather, a dip into the 20's is significant.  Let's hope that new light weight sleeping bag is not only light weight but warm.
