Weather Forecast 09.25.06

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.

Owens Valley & High Sierra Forecast
Fort Independence EPA Met Station
EPA Site No: 06-027-1028
0806 PDT 25 Sep 2006


Short Term…Monday and Tuesday will see generally dry conditions, clear skies and some afternoon cumulus build up. Afternoon temps in the Owens Valley will be in the low 80s today and tomorrow with lows in the mid 40s. The High Country (8,000 feet) will have evening temps in the mid 20s and daytime temps in the mid 60s.

Long Term…A Rex Block pattern off the west coast will give us a southwesterly flow and mostly clear skies through the week. We can expect a slight warming trend through Saturday with the High Country seeing daytime temps in the upper 60s/low 70s. Some afternoon cumulus can be expected over the crest. The Owens Valley will have high temps in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 40s.

Sounds like great weather for next weekend. I'm looking forward to heading up 395.

DMATT, Thanks, keep em coming. I am heading up to Cottonwood Lakes, Langley and Miter Basin 10/4 for a few days solo and I like the way the weather is shaping up.
