FORECAST 07-MAR-08

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.

FORECAST FOR THE OWENS VALLEY, MAMMOTH AND MONO COUNTY
PROVIDED BY DENNIS MATTINSON
EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER
BROADCASTING FOUR TIMES A DAY ON THE SIERRAWAVE 92.5 / 96.5 FM

FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 2008 7:03 AM

OUR UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE FLATTENS A BIT TODAY IN RESPONSE TO COLD FRONT APPROACHING THE WEST COAST. THIS FRONT WILL MOVE INLAND TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY WITH VERY LITTLE MOISTURE AVAILABLE. BANDS OF HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS WILL MOVE OVER OUR AREA LATER TODAY IN RESPONSE TO THIS FRONT. WINDS WILL PICK UP THIS EVENING IN MONO COUNTY AND CONTINUE INTO SATURDAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY AS WELL. THESE WINDS SHOULD NOT REACH ADVISORY LEVELS THOUGH. ON SUNDAY THE EASTERN PACIFIC RIDGE STRENGTHENS GIVING US CONTINUED DRY CONDITIONS AND MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. ON MONDAY A FAST MOVING WEATHER DISTURBANCE CLIPS OUR AREA THEN MOVES ON TUESDAY. THERE IS AN EVER SO SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION MONDAY IN THE HIGH COUNTRY. THEN AS THE DISTURBANCE MOVES EAST, WE WILL GET SOME UP SLOPE CLOUDS. RIDGING STRENGTHENS ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY WITH DRY CONDITIONS. ALL IN ALL, OUR DRY PATTERN LOOKS LIKE IT WILL CONTINUE.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 60S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE LOWER 30S. LIGHT NORTHWEST WIND BECOMING 3 - 6 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.
