WEATHER FORECAST 10/12/07

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: 6:20 AM PDT OCT 12, 2007

THE LATEST PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM IS MOVING ON THROUGH CENTRAL CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING AND I EXPECT IT TO AFFECT THE SIERRA LATER TODAY WITH MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION FALLING ON THE WESTERN SIDE. STILL THOUGH, WE COULD GET SOME RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND ISOLATED RAIN IN THE VALLEYS. THIS SYSTEM WILL QUICKLY EXIT OUR AREA LATER TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY CLEAR BECOMING MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A 20% CHANCE OF ISOLATED RAIN SHOWERS. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 68 AND LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 39. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 70 AND LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 39. NORTHWEST WIND 7 - 14 GUSTING TO 20 MPH.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES. 40% CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS DURING THE DAY AND SNOW SHOWERS IN THE EVENING. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 46 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND THE MID 50S FOR THE VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 30 - 39. NORTH WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR MAMMOTH AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 47 FOR THE MAIN LODGE AND THE UPPER 50S FOR THE VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 31 - 39. NORTH WIND 5 - 10 MPH BECOMING CALM LATER IN THE EVENING.

SLIGHT WARMING WILL OCCUR OVER THE WEEKEND WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND DRY CONDITIONS. ON MONDAY THE RIDGE WILL MOVE EAST AS THE NEXT SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVES INTO THE WEST COAST. RIGHT NOW THIS LOOKS LIKE A SPLITTING TROUGH WITH MOST OF THE MOISTURE GOING NORTH TO OREGON AND WASHINGTON. BUT, BY TUESDAY, YET NIGHT ANOTHER SYSTEM MOVES INTO CALIFORNIA AND THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DROP SOME GOOD MOISTURE INTO OUR AREA. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES ON THIS SYSTEM.
