FORECAST 11.14.06

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.

Discussion: Locally gusty winds will continue this morning then diminish this afternoon. Upper level ridge to build in tonight through Wednesday afternoon, bringing dry conditions, then begin to flatten on Wednesday night by a encroaching pacific system. Chance of showers possible on Thursday with gusty conditions over the Crest.

Today: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers early, then clearing. Temps mid 60s / mid 30s. Winds NW 15-20 mph.

Tomorrow: Clear skies. Temps mid 60s / mid to upper 30s. Winds SW light and variable.

Outlook: Right now it looks like a stable pattern is developing for the weekend. Possible shortwave activity on Saturday, but to early to tell of that development. I am going with dry conditions through the weekend until there is some model consensus.
