WEATHER FORECAST 3/20/07 | High Sierra Topix  


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.

Forecast for Mammoth & the Owens Valley
Provided by Dennis Mattinson
Forecast Specialist for the Sierra Wave 92.5 / 96.5 FM
Broadcast Times 12:30pm & 5:30pm M - F

An incoming Pacific trough will make shore this morning and begin to effect our area by midday. This is not a well organized system and I expect only a few inches of snow in Mammoth and the High Country. The Owens Valley still has a 20% chance of rain showers later today. The trough should eject east tonight into Wednesday, ending any chance of showers except some up slope activity in the High Country. I expect strong winds over the Crest today into tomorrow.

Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Partly sunny becoming mostly cloudy tonight. There will be a 20% chance of rain showers later today and tonight. Cooler with daytime temperatures in the lower 60s and evening lows in the lower 30s. Northwest wind 10 -15 gusting to 25 mph tonight.

Today for Mammoth: Mostly cloudy and breezy. Isolated rain and snow showers today and tonight Snow level lowering to 5,500 feet in the evening. Daytime temperature range 42 - 52 and evening lows 15 to 27. Southwest wind 15 - 20 gusting to 35 in town and 60 mph over the Crest.

Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Partly cloudy becoming mostly clear later in the day. Highs in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 30s. Northwest wind 10 - 15 mph in the afternoon.

Tomorrow for Mammoth: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow showers. High temperature range 40 - 50 and lows 15 to 25. Northwest wind 15 - 20 gusting to 60 mph over the Crest.

Dry and warmer conditions will prevail on Thursday and Friday then a Pacific ridge builds in on Saturday and Sunday with a continuation of fair weather. Right now, the next system looks to be due into our area on Monday into Tuesday with a chance of precipitation in the Valley and snow in the High Country.
