WEATHER FORECAST 5/3/07 | 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.

A few snow showers remain over the High Country but should end this morning. The big story is the continued windy conditions, with a Wind Advisory still in place probably through Friday. Yesterday Mammoth picked up 3 inches of fresh powder. Other areas of the High Country picked up only trace amounts of snow. Maximum Wind gust recorded yesterday at Fort Independence was 52.1 mph.

Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Mostly sunny skies, windy and cooler. Daytime temps in the mid 60s and evening lows in the mid 30s. North wind 10 - 15 with gusts of 30 mph in the afternoon.

Today for Mammoth and the Mono Valleys: Partly cloudy and breezy with rain and snow showers developing after midnight. Snow level 6,000 feet. Daytime temps 46 - 56 and evening lows 15 - 25. West wind 15 - 25 with gusts of 35 mph in the afternoon and 55 over the Crest. Wind should decrease a little after midnight.

Friday for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Mostly sunny skies. High temps in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 30s. Northwest wind 10 - 20 mph with gusts of 35 in the afternoon.

Precipitation chances begin again tonight into Friday for the High Country. This incoming system is fairly weak and rain / snow will be light, but we will take what we can get. System shifts east on Saturday and a high amplitude ridge builds in giving us dry and warmer conditions through at least Monday and Tuesday.
