Thunderstorms/Monsoonal Flow Starting 8/1

Post by maverick » Thu Jul 26, 2012 4:57 pm

Monsoonal flow is supposed to be starting back up and will be effecting southern
to central Sierra up to about LLV, especially the eastern side from Wed thru the
weekend.
Be prepared, be safe.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

At this point the model seems unclear as to how much moisture is going to develop, should become clearer over net few days:
ANOTHER MOISTURE SURGE FROM MEXICO AND ARIZONA IS PROJECTED
FOR WEDNESDAY. THE 12Z GFS IS NOT AS QUICK TO BRING THE MOISTURE
NORTHWARD AS THE EARLIER RUNS WERE...BUT HAVE MAINTAINED THE
SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR THE SOUTHERN SIERRA AND KERN COUNTY
MOUNTAIN AND DESERT AREAS ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
