Owens Valley / Mammoth Weather Forecast
Provided by Dennis Mattinson
Forecast Specialist for the Sierra Wave
A couple of cold fronts are moving into our area over the next few days. The first should arrive latter today and be preceded by high clouds. The second brings with it an artic air mass and should arrive late Thursday. As of now, moisture for each of these fronts is limited and I expected only snow showers in the High Country. The Owens Valley could see flurries on Thursday night. The main issue with the second front is the very cold air and wind which will bring chill values down to dangerous levels in the High Country on Thursday night/Friday morning.

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.
