Weather Forecast 5/14/07

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.

Tomorrow for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Sunny skies becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Possibility of isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. High temperature range 72 - 82 and lows 33 - 43. Southwest wind 10 mph.

Upper ridge shifts a bit on Thursday into Friday allowing for a slight cool down and the chance of afternoon thunderstorm activity particularly from Mammoth north. A very large ridge of high pressure builds in on Sunday and Monday starting a very warm pattern for us with temps above normal. There continues to be the possibility of an early monsoon season beginning late May into June.

Thanks, Dennis!

Got your note! Sorry I missed you this weekend. Saturday was a tough day.
