FORECAST 11-APR-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.

PROVIDED BY DENNIS MATTINSON
EASTERN SIERRA WEATHER FORECASTER
BROADCASTING FOUR TIMES A DAY ON THE SIERRAWAVE 92.5 / 96.5 FM

FRIDAY, 11-APR-08, 7:05 AM

A LARGE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD INTO CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THIS TRANSLATES INTO WARMING TEMPERATURES AND CLEAR SKIES FOR THE EASTERN SIERRA. TEMPS WILL INCREASE THROUGH MONDAY WITH THE OWENS VALLEY LOOKING AT THE MID 80S BY THEN. ALSO SOME MONO VALLEYS WILL SEE THE LOW 70S AND MAMMOTH THE LOW 60S IN THIS SAME TIME PERIOD. INCREASED SNOW MELT WITH THESE ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CAUSE SOME STREAMS TO RAISE AND CREATE A POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS CONDITION. BY TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY THE RIDGE BEGINS TO BREAK DOWN A BIT AS A CLOSED LOW MOVES OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AND CREATES THE SLIGHT POSSIBILITY OF SHOWERS IN THE MONO COUNTY HIGH COUNTRY.

TODAY FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 70S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 30S. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 10 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR BISHOP AND THE OWENS VALLEY: CLEAR SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW 80S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE LOW 40S. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 10 MPH.
