Another record temperature day in store for Bishop and the Owens Valley; if this happens it will make four days in a row that the high temperature record has been broken. The upper level high pressure ridge rebuilds today creating slightly warmer temperatures, dry weather and a few cirrus overhead.

Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies and possible record high temperatures once again. Daytime temperatures in the mid 80s and evening lows in the upper 30s. South wind 10 - 15 mph in the afternoon.

Today for Mammoth: Clear blue skies. Temperature range 62 - 72 and lows 22 - 32. Light wind.

Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny with highs in the low 80s and lows in the upper 30s. South wind 10 -15 mph in the afternoon and evening.

Tomorrow for Mammoth: Clear skies. Daytime temperature range 65 - 75 and evening lows 23 - 33. Light wind.

The West Coast ridge will move east on Sunday, lowering temperatures a bit. Then a weak upper level trough pushes in early next week creating cooler temperatures and a chance of showers on Tuesday and Wednesday, particularly for the High Country.

Thanks Dennis!

What a difference from last year...those last storms about two weeks ago brought 4 feet at our house at 6300 feet...we have maybe a foot's melting really fast with these warm and sunny days...very odd for March..I look out and it looks more like May :eek: It has been nice as far as being able to turn the heater off completely during the day. Hiking yesterday It would have been warm enough for shorts and short sleeves :)
