Weather Forecast 5/25/07

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.

A dry and warm holiday weekend is in store for us with some high clouds floating over the Crest. Warming trend should continue into at least Saturday.

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

Saturday for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Daytime temps in the upper 80s and maybe even a 90 depending on where you are. 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 lower 70s for the Main Lodge and lower 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 32 - 42. West wind 10 - 15 mph in the evening.

Saturday for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Sunny. High temperature range mid 70s for the Main Lodge and mid 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 33 - 43. Southwest wind 10 - 15 mph in the afternoon.

Shortwave energy tracking across the Pacific Northwest will keep temperatures somewhat in check for Sunday and Memorial Day. Breezes should pick up a bit with the passing trough, but be well below advisory levels. Tuesday and Wednesday will start a slight warming trend as an upper level ridge pumps up along the West Coast. We will probably see cumulus buildup over the Crest each afternoon, particularly from Sunday onward with a slight chance of thunderstorm activity. Other wise dry conditions will prevail through at least the mid part of next week.
