Weather Forecast 09.20.06

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Short Term…The upper level trough that increased our winds yesterday afternoon and this morning will be moving east today. High pressure will build in over the eastern pacific and produce a dry, stable northwest flow over the Owens Valley through tomorrow. A mild warming trend is expected today and Thursday with valley daytime temps in the upper 80s today and low 90s Thursday. The High country can expect afternoon temps in the mid 50s with breezy conditions today and for Thursday, daytime temps in the upper 50s with reducing winds.

Long Term…A large trough will deepen over the western U.S. Friday and Saturday. Thus, a slight cooling trend is expected with daytime temps a few degrees below normal. For Sunday, there will be a continuation of pleasant below normal temps with southwest breezes.
