FORECAST 11.06.06

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 Country Forecast
Fort Independence EPA Met Station
EPA Site No: 06-027-1028

All:

Discussion: Dirty ridge to continue to build in today, with high level cirrus, then weaken on Tuesday night. Slightly above normal temps on Tuesday, then cooler temps on Wednesday as another trough enters our area.

Today: Sunny skies in the High Country and Owens Valleys with copious amounts of cirrus overhead. Owens Valley; low 70s / low 40s, light winds. High Country; mid 60s / mid 20s, light winds.

Tomorrow: Sunny skies and slightly warmer. High Country; upper 60s / lower 30s, winds NW 10-15mph. Owens Valley: mid 70s / mid 40s, winds NW 10-15mph.

Outlook: Cooler Wednesday as a low moves north of our area. Chance of scattered showers over the Crest Wednesday PM. Thursday/Friday a shortwave ridge builds in for generally dry weather.

I wore a tank top with the arm warmers during the day (Sat), and did not need the jacket at all. I started off with a light capilene but that came off in the first 10 min. :)
