High cirrus clouds have moved into Central California from the Southwest ahead of a low. These clouds should remain over the High Country and the Owens Valley off and on through out the day. Still plenty of filtered sun and dry, warm conditions in the Valley. With these clouds comes plenty of mid level moisture so we can expect another round of thunderstorms over the Crest into Saturday afternoon.
Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Considerable filtered sun during the day turning partly cloudy in the evening. Daytime temps in the low 90s and evening lows in the mid 50s. Light wind.

Sunday looks like a transition day with the flow turning more westerly and limiting t-storm activity somewhat. By Monday the threat diminishes even more and ridge building begins in earnest. Right now, the rest of the week looks to be benign with westerly afternoon breezes, dry conditions and slightly cooler temps for the High Country. The Owens Valley will see a slight downward trend in temperatures by mid week (to just above average for this time of year) with dry conditions.
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.
