WEATHER FORECAST 08/06/07

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: 8:16 AM PDT AUG 06, 2007

LOW PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OFF THE WEST COAST GIVING US A SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT RESULTING IN DRY CONDITIONS AND TEMPERATURES JUST BELOW NORMAL FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. I EXPECT GUSTY CONDITIONS IN BOTH THE VALLEYS AND HIGH COUNTRY TODAY AND TUESDAY. ANY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES SHOULD REMAIN EAST OF OUR AREA. SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW COULD TRANSPORT SMOKE FROM THE FIRES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TO PARTS OF OUR AREA TODAY AND TOMORROW.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY CLEAR WITH SOME HAZE AND SMOKE. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 90S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE LOWER 50S. SOUTH WIND 12 - 15 GUSTING TO 26 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

TUESDAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 90S AND LOWS IN THE LOWER 50S. LIGHT WIND BECOMING SOUTH 10 - 15 MPH GUSTING TO 20 THE AFTERNOON.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: MOSTLY CLEAR. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 68 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 78 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 40 - 50. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 GUSTING TO 25 MPH IN THE EVENING.

TUESDAY FOR MAMMOTH AND SURROUNDING AREA: CLEAR SKIES WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 70 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND 80 FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 42 - 52. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 GUSTING TO 22 MPH IN THE EVENING.
