FORECAST 03-JUN-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 ON KSRW 92.5 / 96.5 FM

TUESDAY, 03-JUN-08, 7:09 AM

A WEAK SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TODAY FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER TOMORROW. THESE DRY SYSTEMS WILL HAVE LITTLE MOISTURE IMPACT TO OUR FORECAST AREA BUT AN INCREASE IN THE WINDS. THE SECOND SYSTEM ON WEDNESDAY WILL PUSH THROUGH A LITTLE FARTHER SOUTH AND MOVE OUT OF OUR AREA, INTO 4-CORNERS, ON THURSDAY. A WIND ADVISORY HAS BEEN HOISTED FOR 10 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 3AM PDT THURSDAY. NOT MUCH CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS, MAYBE A BIT COOLER ON WEDNESDAY. I EXPECT ANOTHER WEAK SYSTEM TO PUSH THROUGH THE PACNW ON FRIDAY KEEPING THINGS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL IN TEMPERATURE INTO SATURDAY AND A BIT BREEZY, BUT NOT TO ADVISORY LEVELS.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY. BREEZY CONDITIONS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 80S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE LOWER 50S. NORTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH INCREASING TO 20 - 25.

TOMORROW FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: MOSTLY SUNNY AND BREEZY AGAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW 80S AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 40S. NORTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH INCREASING TO 20 - 25 GUSTING TO 30.

TODAY FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: MOSTLY SUNNY BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY. WINDY CONDITIONS. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 62 AND EVENING LOWS AROUND 40. WEST WIND 10 - 20 MPH GUSTING TO 35.

TOMORROW FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: MOSTLY SUNNY BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY AND CONTINUED WINDY. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 58 AND EVENING LOWS AROUND 36. WEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH GUSTING TO 25.

TODAY FOR MONO COUNTY: PARTLY CLOUDY AND WINDY. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 62 - 72 AND EVENING LOWS 36 - 46. WEST WIND 15 - 25 MPH GUSTING TO 45 WITH RIDGE TOP GUST TO 60.

TOMORROW FOR MONO COUNTY: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH WINDY CONDITIONS. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 60 - 70 AND EVENING LOWS 33 -43. WEST WIND 15 - 25 MPH GUSTING TO 40.

NOTE: DENNIS' FORECAST ORIGINATES FROM THE FORT INDEPENDENCE EPA METEOROLOGICAL STATION. BECAUSE WEATHER CONDITIONS VARY GREATLY FROM LOCATION TO LOCATION IN THE EASTERN SIERRA, THIS FORECAST IS FOR A SPECIFIC AREA AND TIME FRAME.

Dennis, we ended up with awesome weather and great views. We could have done without the postholing, but that's part of the adventure! Thanks!

Snowy:

Sorry we could not hook up before your trek, but it sounds like you had a "good weather" time.
