Ridging weakens a bit on Friday and into the weekend as a Pacific trough moves inland. As of now, this trough looks quite weak. So, continued warm temperatures through Friday then a slight cooling trend on Saturday and Sunday with clear, dry conditions and temperatures a little above normal for the Owens Valley and at normal for the High Country.
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.
