For the valleys, there will be a fairly stagnant pattern through Friday as an upper ridge continues to park itself over the Great Basin giving us mostly clear skies and warm temperatures. For the High Country, there will be a continued chance of scattered thunderstorms as an upper low lingers over California and provides additional mid level moisture. Yesterday a few thunderstorms did break out over the Crest but moved rapidly eastward.
Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies. Daytime temps in the low 90s and evening lows in the mid 50s. Southeast wind 10 mph.
Tomorrow for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Mostly sunny skies. Daytime temps in the lower 90s and evening lows in the mid 50s. Southeast wind 10 - 15 mph.

Tomorrow for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Clear skies becoming mostly cloudy in the afternoon. There will be a chance of scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. High temperature range mid 70s for the Main Lodge and mid 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temp range 41 - 51. West wind 10 - 15 mph in the evening.
On Saturday and Sunday the High Country will see an increase in thunderstorm coverage as an Eastern Pacific trough moves into California and Nevada. Drier westerly flow returns late Sunday into Wednesday and reduces the chance of thunderstorms over the Crest. The Valley weather will remain the about the same with dry conditions prevailing.
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.
