WEATHER FORECAST 07/30/07

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 FOR THE OWENS VALLEY AND MAMMOTH AREA
PROVIDED BY DENNIS MATTINSON
EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER
BROADCASTING ON THE SIERRAWAVE 92.5 / 96.5 FM

LAST UPDATE: 7:42 AM PDT JUL 30, 2007

UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER UTAH WILL PROVIDE A SOUTHEAST FLOW AND WILL GRADUALLY BRING MOISTURE OVER FROM ARIZONA INTO OUR AREA TODAY AND TUESDAY. SO, I EXPECT A 10% - 20% CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORM ACTION OVER THE MOUNTAINS, PARTICULARLY FROM MAMMOTH NORTH. OTHERWISE VERY WARM CONDITIONS IN THE VALLEYS WILL CONTINUE.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: SCATTERED HIGH CLOUDS IN THE MORNING BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY LATER IN THE DAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 104 AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S. SOUTH WIND 10 - 15 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

TUESDAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY IN THE MORNING BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 104 AND LOWS IN THE LOWER 60S. SOUTH WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: MOSTLY CLEAR IN THE MORNING BECOMING MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 92 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 45 - 55. WEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

TUESDAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: MORNING SUNSHINE BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 81 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 92 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 45 - 55. LIGHT WIND BECOMING SOUTHWEST 5 - 10 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

INCREASE IN THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY TO 30 % ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, THEN THE FLOW CHANGES TO SOUTHWEST BY THE WEEKEND AND THIS WILL REDUCE THE CHANCE OF T-STORMS, CREATING DRIER CONDITIONS FOR THE HIGH COUNTRY. TEMPERATURES SHOULD COOL DOWN A BIT FOR THE BOTH THE HIGH COUNTRY AND THE OWENS VALLEY BY FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND.
