FORECAST 11.08.06

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
0852 PST 08 Nov 2006

All:

Discussion: Cold front moving in to our north will cause breezy conditions over the Crest and a very slight chance of precipt/fluries from Mammoth north this afternoon/evening. This is a relatively dry trough so no real moisture in the Owens Valley.

Today: Owens Valley Conditions: sunny and breezy; temps mid 70s / mid 30s; winds W 15-20 G 40 mph.
High Country Conditions: mostly sunny and windy; temps mid 60s / mid 20s; winds SW 20-30 G 50 mph over the Crest.

Tomorrow: Owens Valley Conditions: sunny and a little cooler; temps mid to upper 60s / mid to upper 20s; winds NW 10-15 mph.
High Country Conditions: mostly clear; temps mid 50s / mid 20s; winds NW 10-15 mph.

Outlook: Split flow developing so unsettled weather through the weekend. Shortwave's forecast to move in on Saturday then another on Monday/Tuesday. At this time difficult to tell how much moisture will be associated with each of these lows. Best bet right now, dry weather through at least Sunday for the Owens Valley.
