WEATHER FORECAST 11/07/07

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.

POINT 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: 7:18 AM PST NOV 07, 2007

A STRONG RIDGE REMAINS OVER THE WESTERN U.S. GIVING US ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON THURSDAY WILL BE SIMILAR TO TODAY'S. A WEAK CLOSED LOW OFF THE WEST COAST COULD BRING A FEW HIGH CLOUDS OVER THE CREST.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY CLEAR. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 70S AND LOWS IN THE UPPER 20S. SOUTH WIND 5 - 10 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY IN THE EVENING. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 70S AND LOWS IN THE LOWER 30S. SOUTH WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

TODAY FOR MAMMOTH LAKES AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY SUNNY BLUE SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 54 FOR THE TOWN AND 65 FOR THE VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 20 - 30. LIGHT WINDS.

TOMORROW FOR MAMMOTH LAKES AND THE MONO VALLEYS: MOSTLY CLEAR BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 53 FOR THE TOWN AND 64 FOR THE VALLEYS. LOW TEMPERATURE RANGE 22 - 32. WEST WIND 10 MPH.

TIMING IS ALWAYS AN ISSUE THIS FAR OUT, BUT ON FRIDAY, THAT CLOSED LOW THAT HAS BEEN LURKING OFF THE WEST COAST IS KICKED EASTWARD IN RESPONSE TO A SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THIS WILL GIVE THE HIGH COUNTRY A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN AND SNOW ON FRIDAY NIGHT. THEN THE TAIL OF THAT AFOREMENTIONED PACIFIC NORTHWEST TROUGH WILL MOVE THROUGH OUR AREA ON SATURDAY, GIVING THE HIGH COUNTRY ANOTHER SHOT AT RAIN AND SNOW ON SATURDAY INTO SATURDAY NIGHT. THERE WILL BE A LINGERING CHANCE OF PRECIPT ON SUNDAY, THEN ANOTHER WEAK TROUGH MOVES THROUGH ON MONDAY INTO TUESDAY. THESE ARE ALL WEAK SYSTEMS FOR THE TIME BEING AND NO MAJOR STORM IS IN STORE FOR US IN THE SHORT TERM. BUT IT IS OBVIOUS THAT A CHANGE IS OCCURRING TO A MORE ACTIVE PATTERN WITH OUR WEATHER.
