A ridge of high pressure will hold over our area today and this will continue the warm temperatures we have been experiencing. However, an approaching low pressure system, moving into the Pacific Northwest, will flatten the ridge bringing a bit of relief over the weekend with slightly cooler temps and breezy conditions. The strongest winds will occur on Saturday afternoon. The air mass will remain dry and with the gusty winds and low humidity, this will create critical fire weather conditions through at least Saturday afternoon.
Today for Bishop & the Owens Valley: Sunny skies. Daytime high temperatures around 100 and evening lows in the upper 50s. South wind 05 - 10 gusting to 20 mph in the afternoon.

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.
