FORECAST 31-JUL-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
KSRW 92.5 / 96.5 FM AND TV-33

THURSDAY, 31-JUL-08, 7:10 AM

HOT AND DRY WILL BE THE ORDER OF THE DAY THROUGH FRIDAY, BUT SOME MONSOON MOISTURE COULD CREEP BACK INTO OUR AREA OVER THE WEEKEND LEADING TO SCATTERED T-STORM ACTION INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. FOR NOW, THE UPPER RIDGE CENTERED OVER THE FOUR CORNERS REGION WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE OUR WEATHER WITH PATCHY CIRRUS CLOUDS FLOATING OVER THE CREST FROM TIME TO TIME. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS HAVE INDICATED THAT SMOKE HAS CLEARED A BIT THIS MORNING IN MONO AND INYO COUNTIES GIVING US A LITTLE BETTER VISIBILITY, HOWEVER CHANGING WIND DIRECTIONS AND FLARE UPS WILL KEEP HAZY CONDITIONS IN THE FORECAST FOR AT LEAST A FEW MORE DAYS.

TODAY FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES AND HOT. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 100 AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S. NORTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

TOMORROW FOR THE OWENS VALLEY: SUNNY SKIES AND HOT AGAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 99 AND EVENING LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S. SOUTH WIND 11 - 14 MPH BECOMING NORTHWEST.

TODAY FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: SUNNY WITH WIDESPREAD HAZE AND SMOKE. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 EVENING LOWS AROUND 50. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 10 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON.

TOMORROW FOR THE TOWN OF MAMMOTH LAKES: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 80 AND EVENING LOWS AROUND 52. WEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

TODAY FOR MONO COUNTY: SUNNY WITH SOME SMOKE AND HAZE. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 82 - 92 AND EVENING LOWS 43 - 53. SOUTHWEST WIND 10 - 15 MPH.

TOMORROW FOR MONO COUNTY: SUNNY WITH AREAS OF HAZE. HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 82 - 92 AND EVENING LOWS 42 - 52. SOUTHWEST WIND 5 - 15 MPH.

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.
