Weather Forecast 5/29/07

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 high amplitude ridge will be the major player in our weather for the next few days. Temperatures will remain today about the same as yesterday, then a slight increase for tomorrow. There will be some instability over the Sierra Crest today and tomorrow creating a slight chance of thunderstorm activity. Otherwise we can expect generally fairs skies and warm temperatures through Wednesday.


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

Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies once again. Daytime temps in the lower 90s and evening lows in the lower 50s. 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. Northwest wind 10 mph in the evening.

Tomorrow for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Clear skies becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. There will be a slight chance on thunderstorms later in the day. High temperature range mid 70s for the Main Lodge and mid 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 37 - 47. West wind 10 mph.


The ridge of high pressure will remain over the West Coast through Sunday. Increasing moisture over the Sierra Crest will create a better chance of thunderstorm activity in the High Country on Friday and Saturday. Otherwise we will see a fairly stable pattern with dry conditions and clear skies.
