An Eastern Pacific ridge will build in over the West Coast for the next few days. This means temperatures will be on the rise giving us a warming trend into at least Friday.
Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies and a little windy in the morning, then partly cloudy in the afternoon. Daytime temps in the upper 70s and evening lows in the mid 40s. North wind 10 - 20 in the morning reducing to 10 mph in the afternoon and evening.
Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Mostly sunny. Daytime temps in the mid 80s and evening lows in the mid 40s. Northwest wind 10 mph.

Warm up continues on Saturday then stalls for Sunday and Monday as a shortwave trough tracks across Northern California. Sunday and Memorial Day we can expect daytime temps to hover in the lower 90s for the Owens Valley and the mid 70s for the Main Lodge at Mammoth. Some clouds over the mountains will be expected each afternoon with thunderstorm activity possible on Sunday and Monday for Mammoth north, otherwise dry and sunny conditions through the period.
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.

Thanks Matt! Hope the bugs aren't too bad this weekend.
