Many locations in the Owens Valley reached the century mark yesterday. High Temps for the following towns were recorded; Bishop 100, Independence 100, Manzanar 102, and Lone Pine 101 degrees. I expect little change in temps today and tomorrow as the ridge of high pressure lying across the region will only move slightly eastward. A passing trough to our north will lower temps only slightly on Sunday. Otherwise we will see dry conditions and temperatures remaining above normal through the weekend.
Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies. Daytime high temperatures around 100 and evening lows in the upper 50s. South wind around 10 mph in the afternoon.
Saturday for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies again. Daytime high temperatures around 100 again and evening lows in the upper 50s. South wind 10 mph in the afternoon.
Today for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Mostly sunny skies becoming partly cloudy. High temperature range low 80s for the Main Lodge and low 90s for the Mono Valleys. Low temperature range 42 - 52. Southwest wind 10 - 15 with gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoon.
Saturday for Mammoth & the Mono Valleys: Sunny skies. High temperature range upper 70s for the Main Lodge and upper 80s for the Mono Valleys. Low temperature range 40 - 50. Southwest wind 10 - 15 with gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoon.
Dry weather continues through mid week with the slight chance of a trough from Alberta affecting our area late Monday. If this happens it would only cause winds to pick up on Tuesday and temps to cool down a few degrees. The fire danger continues to be extreme, so please be careful out there!
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.
