WEATHER FORECAST 10/11/07

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: 6:34 AM PDT OCT 11, 2007

SHORT WAVE RIDGING BUILDS IN TODAY GIVING US ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL FALL DAY HERE IN THE EASTERN SIERRA. TOMORROW WILL BRING A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER AS ANOTHER STRONG PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM MOVES ON TO THE COAST THEN ACROSS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. THIS SHOULD BE A FAST HITTER AS MENTIONED IN YESTERDAYS FORECAST, BRINGING WITH IT STRONG WINDS OVER THE SIERRA CREST AND A CHANCE PRECIPITATION TO OUR AREA.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY CLEAR. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 AND LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 36. SOUTHEAST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: PARTLY SUNNY IN THE MORNING BECOMING MOSTLY CLOUDY IN THE EVENING. THERE WILL BE A 20% CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS FRIDAY NIGHT. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 68 AND LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 38. NORTHWEST WIND 11 - 17 GUSTING TO 22 MPH.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 62 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND THE LOW 70S FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 32 - 39. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR MAMMOTH AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY CLOUDY. 30% CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS DURING THE DAY AND SNOW SHOWERS TO 8,500 FEET IN THE EVENING. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 48 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND THE MID 50S FOR THE MONO VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 31 - 39. NORTH WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON WILL SEE RIDGE BUILDING THROUGH SUNDAY WITH CLEARING SKIES THEN ON MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY ANOTHER PACIFIC STORM MOVES THROUGH. THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE COLDER AND WETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS, GIVING US GUSTY WINDS AND DROPPING THE SNOW LEVEL WAY DOWN. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES AS THIS PARTICULAR SYSTEM CONTINUES TO DEVELOP.
