WEATHER FORECAST 07/25/07

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.

WEATHER FORECAST 07/25/07

PROVIDED BY DENNIS MATTINSON
EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER
BROADCASTING ON THE SIERRAWAVE 92.5 / 96.5 FM

LAST UPDATE: 8:31 AM PDT JUL 25, 2007

THE THREAT OF AFTERNOON SCATTERED THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL CONTINUE ALONG THE SIERRA CREST THROUGH TONIGHT THEN BECOME MORE ISOLATED THROUGH FRIDAY. WARMING CONDITIONS IN THE VALLEYS WILL CONTINUE AS CLOUD COVER DIMINISHES TOMORROW, SO I EXPECT A FEW DEGREES OF WARMING.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY CLEAR BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY IN THE AFTERNOON. CHANCE OF ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 90S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE LOWER 60S. WEST WIND 3 - 7 MPH.

THURSDAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH CHANCE OF SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 90S AND LOWS IN THE LOWER 60S. SOUTHWEST WIND 3 - 7 MPH.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: MOSTLY CLEAR IN THE MORNING BECOMING MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS AND SHOWERS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 90 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 46 - 56. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

THURSDAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 82 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 92 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 45 - 55. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 MPH.

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FOUR CORNERS/SOUTHWESTERN US WILL DOMINATE OUR WEATHER SATURDAY THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY, GIVING US SOUTHWESTERLY AFTERNOON AND EVENING BREEZES AND A CONTINUED POSSIBILITY OF SCATTERED T-STORM ACTIVITY IN THE AFTERNOONS. TEMPERATURES LOOK TO REMAIN ON THE WARM SIDE FOR THE VALLEYS, REMAINING AT OR ABOUT NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

Thanks Dennis.

Those Thunderstorms sound scarey to me. I haven't been to the Sierra in about a month and I was thinking of heading up 395 this weekend. I guess I'll just try to start hiking before dawn so I can get somewhere before the storms start.

kathyW:

things look to become more isolated this weekend and the farther south you go the better it will be; at least thats the way it looks right now.

Thanks Dennis - I was originally thinking of the Bishop area, but I think I'll just go scope out the route for our Mount Russell trip in August because that will be further south.
