Ridging continues to weaken slightly into the weekend as a Pacific trough passes to our north. So, continued warm temperatures with a slight drop on Saturday and Sunday. We will then see a slight rebound in temperatures on Monday as ridging strengthens again. Then another slight cool down on Tuesday and Wednesday as another trough nears the coast. Skies will remain generally clear through the period with occasional mountain cumulus over the Crest.
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.
