FORECAST 11.22.06

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: Upper low out of the Gulf of Alaska is on the move southward. A series of shortwave impulses from that low will effect our area, particularly the High country, through the weekend. With this, I expect a real cool down from the warm temps we have been having. Winds will also pick up in the High Country and over the Crest tonight, +45 mph and + 60 mph, with the chance of light snow.

Today: The Owens Valley can expect partly cloudy skies. Temps mid 60s / upper 20s. Winds S 10 - 20 mph.

Thanksgiving: The valley will see partly cloudy skies. Temps low 60s / mid 20s. Winds S 10 - 15 mph.

Outlook: Things should be mostly dry Friday and Saturday, then a deeper shortwave will move through our area on Sunday. The High County and upper elevations, particularly from Rock Creek north, will have an excellent chance of snow Sunday night. I am looking at 6 to 12 inches of the white stuff Sunday night into Monday for the High Country. The Owens Valley can expect partly cloudy skies on Sunday/Monday with a chance of showers.

Happy Thanksgiving,
