Weather Forecast 5/24/07

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.

Forecast for Mammoth & the Owens Valley

An Eastern Pacific ridge will try to build in over the West Coast for the next few days. Temperatures will gradually be on the rise giving us a warming trend into at least Saturday.

Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies. Daytime temps in the lower 80s and evening lows in the mid 40s. Southeast wind 10 mph.

Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies once again. Daytime temps in the upper 80s and evening lows in the mid 40s. South wind 10 mph.

Today for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Sunny blue skies becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. High temperature range upper 60s for the Main Lodge and upper 70s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 30 - 40. West wind 10 - 15 mph.

Tomorrow for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Sunny. High temperature range lower 70s for the Main Lodge and lower 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 33 - 43. Southwest wind 10 mph.

Shortwave energy dropping over the ridge will help keep temperatures somewhat in check for the Memorial Day weekend. I expect daytime temps to be in the low 90s for the Owens Valley on Sunday/Monday and in the mid 70s at the Main Lodge in Mammoth. We will probably see cumulus buildup over the Crest each afternoon, particularly from Sunday onward and I can't rule out the possibility of thunderstorm activity. Other wise dry conditions will prevail through at least Monday.
